In this edition of EndScore Report, we handicap each NFL game for Week 3. There are some interesting games to look out for, such as the close-lined Atlanta Falcons visiting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Also, how will the presence of Michael Vick affect the game between his Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants? Give this prediction podcast a LISTEN and get your winners!
In this week's edition of "In Your Face," we call out the New York Giants' Deon Grant and Jacquian Williams and the Washington Redskins DeAngelo Hall. It seems there's a lot going on in the NFC East recently and most of it has to do with being an idiot. Give this one a LISTEN and thanks for all of your support of the EndScore Report!
In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris debate the worth of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. Manning quickly put himself on the level of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. While Manning does own one Super Bowl title, Brady has three and is arguably the best best quarterback of his generation. Manning isn't even in the top five of NFL throwers! So, where does he belong? LISTEN to our thoughts on this!
In this edition of EndScore Report, DV and Chris look at the Plaxico Burress situation. Will he go to the Philadelphia Eagles? The New York Giants? Another team? And can Burress do what Eagles quarterback Michael Vick did and return to an NFL field after serving time in prison and excel? LISTEN TO THE DEBATE!
Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber has gotten the itch to play again and has filed papers to come out of retirement after not putting on the pads since 2006. He'll be 36-years-old in April, but does appear to still be in shape, not "game shape," though. Barber finished his 10-year NFL career (all with the Giants) with 10,449 rushing yards that include finishing five straight seasons with at least 1200 yards on the ground and a 4.7 yards per carry average. However, Barber's strength was his ability to also catch the ball out of the backfield (586 receptions for 5183 receiving yards) and could be a versatile weapon for whichever team decides to sign him. Could he return to the Giants? Well, they do own his rights, but Barber has spoken badly enough about the team that they'll probably be only too happy to let him go. With a rested body free of injury, as well as having proven great ability, Barber could do significant things.

The San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers held true last week. The New York Giants and Miami Dolphins proved disappointing. The Giants completely tanked and will miss the playoffs. I went 3-2 for the week. The season mark runs to 44-34. Selections for Week 17 are based on games in which both teams have something to play for (as best we can assess).
My goal is to hit the .600-.660 mark with the predictions this season, but it’s going to be tough. I went 3-3 last week. The season record is at 41-32 (just a bit below .570). To the Express!
Last week’s 2-3 record places the season mark at 38-29. I need some wins and let’s hope that some home-cooking will be the recipe for success this week. We’ve got six games picked and I’m going with the home team for all. Last week the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers took expected victories, but in statement games I was off the mark as the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings got it done over the New York Giants and the Cincinnati Bengals, respectively. The Miami Dolphins kept their wild card hopes alive by knocking off the Jacksonville Jaguars, who currently hold a wild card spot.
Ouch, I go 1-4 this past weekend. Here are my excuses…I mean, reasons. A) I guess I can’t trust Bill Belichick as the New England Patriots lost to the Miami Dolphins, B) I should have known I couldn’t trust Wade Phillips and Tony Romo as the Dallas Cowboys lost to the New York Giants, C) I have to claim Thanksgiving turkey withdrawal for going with a Matt Ryan-less Atlanta Falcons over the Philadelphia Eagles (but was it visions of Xmas Past with Michael Vick?), D) Kurt Warner manned-up and the Arizona Cardinals are making the chase for the NFC crown a three-horse race. Only the Indianapolis Colts rang true and beat the Tennessee Titans. The season record runs to 36-26.
On the way to a 3-2 record from last weekend True Predictions threw out these claims: a) “the Saints will have no trouble with New England,” and b) “it will be Hail, Hail Vince Young in Tennessee’s win over Arizona.” Our third win featured the Indianapolis Colts coming from behind to defeat the under-performing Houston Texans. The Pittsburgh Steelers and substitute QB Dennis Dixon played well enough to win (other than an INT in OT), but the Baltimore Ravens took the victory. The Jacksonville Jaguars needed to show us something in San Francisco, but instead it was the 49ers that were more impressive. The season record on my predictions runs to 35-22.
