What Do You Give Me For? Randall Cunningham and Darryl Jenks (Eriq LaSalle from "Coming to America")
I was watching "A Football Life: Randall Cunningham" and at first thought that they didn't even have 1980s footage of Randall Cunningham so they just used Coming to America clips. I could even picture Ron Jaworski telling him "I'm the starting quarterback, can't you get that through your greasy head?" What do you give me for Randall Cunningham and Darryl Jenks?

Having a deformed finger doesn't need to hold you back in life. I think that's the motto of a new children's book written by Alan Page, former Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman and leader of the Purple People Eaters, Alan and the Perfectly Pointy Impossibly Perpendicular Pinky.

"Crooked Smile" - J. Cole featuring TLC I've wanted not to like J. Cole because of his feud with the first family of rap the Simmons, but every time I hear a song and think it's pretty good I later find out it's J. Cole. This is the 4th time he has been on Song of the Week, and it should have been 5 but I didn't want JLeary to yell at me for choosing "Power Trip."

Time to Pay Attention Cam Newton started his career as the best rookie QB in history. Then he had one of the worst sophomore slumps ever. Now in Year 3 Cam is the quarterback of a really good, really balanced team. Cam himself is playing well, they have a good running game, but most importantly, the Panthers defense is absolutely awesome. It's allowing barely 12 points a game. With the rest of the conference struggling, even if they don't pass the Saints, the Panthers have an excellent chance to make the playoffs. And if they do, with that defense, and Cam Newton playing how he is playing, they might be a serious Super Bowl contender.

If Miley Cyrus wants to ride a wrecking ball naked, that's her business. If she wants to scratch her itchy diseased vagina with a foam finger while Alan Thicke's creepy son watches, I understand, it's all in the name of publicity. And if she wants to light up a joint on stage just because she's in Amsterdamn, that is her legal right. But when she dresses up like a two-bit hooker with the faces of 2Pac and Biggie on her flat disgusting ass, that's when I have to say something. Real musicians, who achieved success and fame through their talents, not through a ridiculous circus freak show of publicity stunts; real artists who created meaningful music with a story to tell and a lesson to learn, shouldn't have their images desecrated in this way. I'd say Biggie and 2Pac and rolling over in their graves but I know they are chilling on an island somewhere with no idea who the fuck this dirty little skank even is.

It always puzzles me how my percentage on best bets is so much worse than on other games. 18-18 isn't bad, but 3-6 is pitiful. Guaranteed lock of the year as my best bet this week though. oakland +7 NEW YORK GIANTS The Raiders got embarrassed last week and have to make the long trip to the East Coast for this game. Those are two things I don't think really matter much but were definitely incorporated into the spread. It seems like everyone is already picking the Giants to go on another crazy run to the playoffs, but I'm not so sure. I'm loathe to pick against the Giants but I think this spread is too big. GREEN BAY -1 philadelphia One team played one of the best games anyone has played all season, the other team played like shit once its star QB got knocked out of the game. But my overriding theory of picking games is that nothing lasts very long in the NFL. detroit +1/2 CHICAGO Under normal circumstances I would like the Lions better than the Bears. But these are not normal circumstances. Jay Cutler could play, is likely to play, but even so I don't have much confidence in him. NEW ORLEANS -6 1/2 dallas Dallas has been riding a very thin line all season, playing a lot of close games. They got lucky against Minnesota last week while the Saints were getting beaten by the Jets. I don't think the Cowboys have the ability to harass Drew Brees in the way, so I expect a strong bounce back performance. BEST BET SAN FRANCISCO -6 1/2 carolina One of these teams is really good, the other team has just been beating up on weak competition. That's my view on this game. We'll see if I'm right. Last Week: 3-2 (2 points) Season: 21-24 (18 points) Best Bets: 0-1 (3-6) Home Favorites: 1-2 (9-8) Home Underdogs: 0-0 (1-1) Road Favorites: 2-0 (6-6) Road Underdogs: 0-0 (5-9)
