NFL: Week 5 Picks

An untrained monkey could pick NFL games at a .500 clip. I need to make a move.
Rams +3 - I think the Rams are making the playoffs this year. I might be crazy.
Titans +7 - Let's see if Dallas is for real this week.
Falcons -3 - The Falcons are a top-7 team. The Browns are a bottom-7 team.
Best Bet: Texans -3 - Arian Foster should run wild.
Upset: Eagles +4 - Kevin Kolb, it's redemption time.
Record: 10-9-1 (Best Bet: 3-1; Upset 1-2-1)

Wednesday Links

-Randy Moss for a 3rd rounder? Seems like a steal for the Vikes. What am I missing?
-I always assume the worst in these cases putting LaceDarius Dunn on my sh!tlist. Hate these stories.
  Deadspin Funbag
  Brandt [NFP]
-I can't think of a better way to sum up Omar Minaya's run as Mets' GM. [NYT]
-A few of my favorite slogans from years past:
Most Confusing - "SD Stands for San Diego" (Padres, 2010)
  Did anyone not know that?
Least Creative - "Take Me Out to the Ballgame (Braves, 2003)
  A five-year old could have come up with this.
Asking for Trouble - "Have You Seen Her" (WNBA, 2006)
  Too many punchlines to this rhetorical question.
Asking for Trouble (Part II) - "New Balls Please" (ATP, 2001)
Most Creative Ad Campaign That I Remember - "These Guys are Good" (PGA Tour)
  Simple, but very well done.
-Blast from the past: Tyrone Prothro, now a bank teller. [Lost Lettermen]
