I'm so ashamed.
After returning to Page Two last week with talk about Dwight Howard, I follow that this Sunday morning with talk about Tim Tebow. Who will I pick next week — a ramdom Kardashian?
But it's not my fault. Blame it on NFL.com because they are who started it. My friends, guess who has his own "page" at the league's web site? Not Tom Brady, not Aaron Rodgers, not Drew Brees — actually not any starting quarterback.
Tim Tebow. The call it "Tebow Zone" and I don't think they intentionally want it to be funny — but it's a hoot.
The first thing you see is a 2:25 video called, wait for it, "Every Tim Tebow Game Highlight." The amazing thing is that they found a way to fill 145 seconds. It starts with Tim warming up, always a treasured highlight. And they practically go nuts when he recovers an onside kick. Hallelujah!
The first reader comment at the bottom of the page summed it up nicely: "This is ridiculous."
P.S. There is another video called "Top 10 Things We Love About Tim Tebow." I swear the first thing said was "You can see him." Right. But after a 37-second tease, you have to join something called "Total Access" to see the rest.
They should call it "Total Excess."
Speaking of excess, my Week 1 picks looked like they were made by the Dolphins. I was 8-8 straight up and 7-9 against the spread. But that's why they have a Week 2.
Houston (1-0) at Jacksonville (0-1) — Texans favored by 7
Texans go from playing Miami to playing the Gags, voting Florida as their favorite state.
Jerry says: Texans but just by 3.
Tampa Bay (1-0) at East Rutherford Giants (0-1) — Giants favored by 7.5
Did you know the World Champion Giants have lost 4 of their last 5 home games? OK, now do you think that will matter today? Me neither.
Jerry says: Giants by ill-tempered 17.
Oakland (0-1) at Miami (0-1) — Raiders favored by 2.5
Fish QB Ryan Tannehill is extremely lucky: After all 16 losses, he has his wife waiting for him. I will not pick the Fish to win a game until after they prove it's possible. Settle in, 'cause this may take a while.
Jerry says: Raiders by a modest 5.
Minnesota (1-0) at Indianapolis (0-1) — Vikings favored by 1
Like Quasimodo, I've got a hunch.
