Until now, the bragging rights between Shaun King and Anwar Richardson haven't been public.
The two have known each other for years. King, the former NFL quarterback and current NBC Sports Network analyst, is the godfather to the eight-month-old son of Richardson, one of the writers here at Shutdown Corner. The trash talk among the two has always been friendly ... at least they say it's friendly.
This season, one of them will be embarrassed publicly through the ultimate test of strength: NFL picks.
Every Friday we'll have Shaun and Anwar's picks at Shutdown Corner, with what they think of the five marquee games of the week. (To watch the video of the Week 1 picks, click on the image at the top of the post or click here.)
