NFL Week 13 Princess Picks – Jets v. Redskins

Coming off a win last week after picking the New Orleans Saints to beat the NY Giants, Princess the prognosticating Camel of Lacy Township Popcorn Park Zoo, is feeling pretty good about herself and her 7W-5L record.

Some (unlike me) would say that last weeks pick was a no-brainer and there was no way the Giants could beat the Saints down in Superdome, so they aren’t willing to give Princess any credit for her winning pick. This week’s pick by Princess isn’t much different.

In a game that would on the surface seem to be another no-brainer, Princess is taking the NY Jets to beat the Washington Redskins on the road at FedX Field. I say no-brainer because conventional wisdom has the Jets beating up on the 4W-7L Redskins on Sunday, but if you succumb to conventional wisdom you may be making a big mistake this week.

The Redskins are a better team then their record would indicate even with the massive amount of injuries that the team has suffered this year. On defense the Skins rank 10th overall in passing defense and 18th against the run. What has hurt the Redskins is their offense, they are 14th overall in passing but their running game is essentially nonexistent ranking 31st in the league.

Offensively these teams are evenly match, while on defense the Jets seem to have a slight advantage, so the game isn’t going to be a blowout or an easy win for the Jets if they do happen to come out on top.

Speaking of the Jets Head Coach Rex Ryan, Princess gave the follow reason as to why she picked the Jets over the Redskins tomorrow,”…Well, sometimes he has a way of rallying his team with the way he acts, and they need this game to have any chance at the playoffs.”

"Occupy Oakland" Documentary

I was sent a link to this “Occupy Oakland” video, It is sympathetic to the Occupy Wall St. movement, gives a brief glimpse into the Oakland occupy movement and was produced rather well. It is interesting to watch and worth a look.

When is the last time you used your amendment rights? In this documentary, you will follow an immigrant in his exploration of the Occupy Wallstreet movement in his hometown of Oakland, where tear gas and warlike scenes as well as grassroots movements are satirized. How to Be American? Perhaps it’s more than just living in this great country.
