Enjoy the games, everyone!
Hehe, Brady with 1 Rush TD and 0 Passing TD. It was a very Tebow day all around, haha.

Cundiff's shank is a good reminder that the Broncos need to re-sign Matt Prater. Sure, Prater misses his share of FGs but he's so good in the clutch. If the Broncos don't re-sign him, don't think for a minute that teams like the Ravens and Steelers won't come calling.

Thanks BlackKnigh. Nice catch. Not sure why I hadn't looked at him. Looks like he "might" last until our 2nd rd pick (tho I doubt it). I would love for him to be the pick. Two Boise St tackles would be great. Franklin to LG or RG would be a great move in my opinion.
My newest draft hopes:
1st rd - OLB Zach Brown
2nd rd - OT Nate Potter
3rd rd - QBs Foles, Weeden, Osweiler or Cousins (whichever is there)
4th rd - RB Pead
Try to sign DT Derek Landri and S Michael Griffin.

well, other than Mays of course

I must live in an alternative universe or something. I know, conditions were bad. 49er D is salty and all. But everybody keeps praising Eli, and all I saw was a ton of bad decisions, bad throws, and missed opportunities to bury SF on multiple occasions.

Patrick Willis is a terror. I'd be hard pressed to find a better cover LB in the game also.

p.s. iPads suck for this purpose. I don't know if its discus or what...but you can't edit or fix mistakes easily and the whole predictive text thing goes out of control...

...not sure ther is a bigger enigma in the NFl than Eli. Dude was brilliant last week, rattled and innacurate this week. Nice TD and all, but by and large he has hindered more than helped this week.

I wish Julius Thomas could be that guy!!!!!!!!

Watching Alex Smith today is so similar to Tebow that it's eerie.

O&B - Nate Potter from Boise State is an OT who has been compared to Solder in his built, height and athleticism.

Pats are going but don't deserve it - that defense is epically bad. How that Evans catch wasn't a TD is beyond me. Why didn't the Ravens just take the delay penalty instead of rushing the FG? I didn't want either team to win - and they didn't.

I hate seeing the Pats back in to the Super Bowl. Brady came up small against an elite defense (again), but no one will talk about that.
On a positive note: Here's to Matt Prater! My what a difference a kicker can make.

Cundiff will be staring at the ceiling for 6 months, and I wish it had gone to OT but that was a heck of a game. Congrats to both teams.

I'm pretty happy about that.
How Ray Finkle are you?

LoL and whoooohooo!!! The only thing worse than getting humiliated is losing the mind-bending, WTF!, keep you awake at night, coulda-woulda-shoulda heartbreaker.
Stay classy, Baltimore!!!

One - how the hell does Lee Evans not hold on to that ball?
Two - who do I get to root for from the NFC in the Super Bowl?

Despise both teams, but I have learned that I'd like to add to my Broncos wish list:
1) A Solder-type Tackle. He is quick and able
2) Taller pass rushers with bulk - Doom and Von would be terror on turf but we need some more size. If McBean was lankier and faster and smarter, he'd be ideal.

Oh how I despise the Ravens. It starts with the MLB murderer-transformed-to-NFL-hero by the hypocritical MSM/NFL fanbase. But it goes much, much, deeper. They are an eclectic bunch of Hurricane/thugs, loud mouths, whiners and self promoters who have never lived up to their considerable press clippings. They make a practice of disrespecting upcoming and former opponents, and they get a free pass on all I've already mentioned. Furthermore they are theoretically lead by the most overrated player in football-- who has become intolerably mouthy and whiny-- and who also just so happens to make Terry Bradshaw (the same guy who 'Hollywood Henderson opined couldn't spell 'cat' if you spotted him the 'C' and the 'T') come across as a rocket scientist...
Long story short, I hope the Patriots humiliate them.
