[IG: TIG apologizes for Flip McCoin sitting out the rest of the season just to preserve his record. That's his prerogative but it's just not how we roll on this site. In his place, TIG will flip a coin for the final week of the NFL season.]
I have a 2013 quarter minted in Denver that honors the state of South Dakota. Hmmm...it has heads on both sides. George Washington on one and Mount Rushmore on the other. Okay, we'll treat the Mount Rushmore side as heads and the other side as just one head. If it's heads take the Eagles. Just one head, go with the Giants. And it's...head! Take the G-Men minus 1!

Sorry to bring this up boss, but I was 9-6 in flips and you were 0-1. In the future, please leave coin flip picks to the pros.
