Alright ladies it's the first day of the Divisional Round Playoffs. Today we have New Orleans Saints (13-3) at San Fransisco 49ers (13-3) followed by Denver Broncos (8-8) at New England Patriots (13-3). Let me know what you think about the games and your feeling during the game. Let the game day chat begin!
Jan 14th, 1:15pm
And perhaps some predictions! I have:
Saints over Niners, 27-14
Pats over Broncos, 38-20
What say ye, gentlemen?!
Jan 14th, 1:18pm
Niners over Saints 21-14
Pats over Beoncos 35-31

Prop Betting time!
More interceptions: Alex Smith or Tim Tebow?
My money is on Tebow.
Jan 14th, 1:25pm
I have a bold prediction that Brees and Brady will combine for more turnovers then Smith and Tebow.

I think the Saints/49ers game could be more interesting that people think, assuming N.O. doesn't go up big early. I don't think you want Alex Smith trying to bring a team back down 2 scores. That's when the turnover machine starts working.If the 9ers can get pressure on Brees and Frank Gore gets to rumbling, I could see this coming down to the final minutes of the game. But most likely the Saints lay it on'em.
Prediction: Saints 35, 49ers 21
Pretty sure this is where the Book of Tebow comes to an end, starring Tom Brady as Judas. All season we've doubted Tebow and all season he continues to prove us wrong. I still firmly believe Denver has to have a solid ground attack to have any kind of chance in this game. You can win a shoot out against Pittsburg. You can't against the Patriots. Denver should get plenty of pressure on the QB, which we've seen is the EXACT way to beat the Pats but I still expect Brady to carve up a secondary that is hurting. The Tebow effect has to be in play though.
Prediction: N.E. 38, Devner 17
I'll take Tebow in the prop bet and call Travis a retard for his. He'll probably be right. Damn it.

Drew Brees intercepted by Goldson and Niners capitalize with a M. Crabtree TD. My predictions are coming to life. 14-0 Niners with :41 left in the 1st

(right after Brees's second interception)
Jason - Oh there you are Drew Brees!
Mike - GODDAMMIT TRAVIS!!!

Put a round of whiskey shots on it? (Next time we're in the same state of course)

Love it. Gonna need the Pats to snag a lot of picks if we're gonna have a chance at winning.
