MIKE ADMITS HE MADE WRONG PICK

Or not. Yesterday Mike picked Buffalo to beat the Browns at home. As we know, the opposite happened. So instead of coming on the air today and admitting he got the pick wrong, that in fact his word is not gold, Francesa instead lumped all the blame on the awful quaterback play of one Trent Edwards. Francesa moaned about the fact that "Edwards performance set quaterbacking back 10 years."

Ever notice that when a Francesa prediction goes awry, instead of admitting his error in judgement, he instead blames others? I have pointed this out before that when Mike gets a pick wrong, he usually laments that "everyone thought that would happen" but when he gets something right it's "I picked that." But today, Trent Edwards "stinks" and is to blame for Mike's incorrect pick. And Breaking News: Mike does not think this Jets game this week will be an "easy game." Wow. They are playing the only undefeated team in the NFL and Mike does not think this will be an easy game for Gang Green. Great call Mike. Great call.

Compulsive gambler's logic. Blaming the athletes for making the wrong pick is desperation. If he'd picked the Browns, he wouldn't give a rat's ass how Trent Edwards played. He's still seething about the bundle he lost on the Steelers, and now this.

Yeah that opening was just as hard to listen to as yesterday's. Also another mini-blow up between Francesa and Mike from Montclair, who continues his streak of coming on with basically a list of grievances agains MF or the FAN

Those of you who are still listening to Francesa just missed a CLASSIC outburst by Russo explaining how he took a pay cut to come to Sirius.

how about this, since none of us with the blog have sirius, why don't the russo listeners send us emails with updates and then we will post the content?

That is a start, but aren't your posts on first hand hearing of the content critical?

I have XM. russo is boring me a little bit. Also, I'm just not interested in sports right now. And also I need to work. I listen to him for 10 minute periods in the car. He's pretty boring. I feel like he is yelling more than usual. Like Mel karamazin told him how funny it is when he yells.
