Ron Glover’s NFL Predictions: Week 5

Posted in Blogroll on October 3rd, 2008 by Ron Glover

One of the most interesting games this weekend will be the Washington Redskins traveling up I-95 to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in a NFC East divisional battle. The Skins are fresh off a win over the Dallas Cowboys while the Birds are trying to put a heartbreaking 24-20 loss to the Chicago Bears behind them. Donovan McNabb and Co. are hoping that running back Brian Westbrook can return to action this week.

Other games of note: Pittsburgh at Jacksonville and Tampa Bay at Denver.

Where were the specific details regarding the economy? Why was Sarah Palin’s baby up at 11:00 pm? Immigration? Bailout? Restoring our global image? 159,00 jobs slashed in September–the most in five years?

Sarah Palin saved her ass by attacking Barack Obama. Because she’s butchered every recent interview, expectations of Palin were very low so I guess she gets a cookie for that. I thought it was embarrassing she never answered one question and made energy her answer at almost every turn. Biden was knowledgeable, Palin was not. She cracked me up at times ducking and dodging Gwen Ifill’s questions and even had the temerity to tell America she was not going to answer basically anything substantive.
