I’ve always admired Tim Tebow as a person and as an athlete for his accomplishments on the collegiate level. To say I’ve always been a Tebow fan would be inaccurate. For one, I think his focus on religion does go a tad overboard, and there’s no way I believe he’s still a virgin. Google “Tim Tebow Girlfriend”. Here, I’ll save you some time
As an alumnus of THE Binghamton University, I’ve never been much of a college football fan. We’ve never even had a football team. Read the rest of this entry »
If I were a gambling man, I would have been a rich man after last week. 4 games. All 4 correct. Now, I’m not going to puff out my chest just yet, because this is the NFL and everyone knows that the unexpected always happens.
Wild Card Weekend Results
Scott aka “Earl” (@ttlsportsblog) 4-0 (doubted Tebow’s will to win)
Chris aka “Hook” (@HookTSB) 3-1 (picked all the winners)
Connor (@CJScutts) 1-3 (2-2 winners)
New Orleans -3.5 @ San Francisco
@ttlsportsblog – I’ve been burned all year by San Fran. And boy do I want them to prove me right this weekend. I’ve thought they are a mediocre team that’s gotten by on a solid defense. Bottom line is that you need to be able to score in this league. When you have a QB who hasn’t thrown for over 300yds in a single game this year, you obviously can’t get behind early. I just don’t see the 49ers putting up 28 or so points on offense. BUT……I do see them making a big defensive or special teams play that will make this game close. The Saints on grass will be slowed down, but that just means that Brees will be throwing the short ball all game and at a 75% clip. I like the Saints to win, but not cover. 27-24 Saints win on a last-minute FG.
@HookTSB - San Francisco had an excellent year. Their defense was top-notch and Alex Smith did enough not to lose games. Their biggest wins during the regular season were Philly, NYG and Pittsburgh. They lost to their 2 other quality opponents in Dallas and Baltimore, and dropped a 3rd to the lowly Cardinals. They haven’t played a team like the Saints all year. Drew Brees is rolling right now. If his public image was more religious and less family-man, we’d all be calling him Breesus. Saints -3.5 could be the easiest call of the weekend, I’m thinking blow-out city 38-21.

Scott aka “Earl” (@ttlsportsblog), Chris aka “Hook” (@HookTSB) and Connor (@CJScutts) break down Wild Card Weekend.
CIN @ HOU
@ttlsportsblog I feel as if everything is leaning towards the Texans in this game. The Texans have the best player in this game in Arian Foster. Although “Youz-din” is on their 9th QB of the season, their running game and defense are top-notch. The fans should be going crazy for the 1st playoff game in team history and play a big factor in the game. I like the Texans to win and cover.
@CJScutts I really like both of these teams in what I consider the tightest of these wild card weekend games to call. Houston may have the better offense, but Cincinnati has the better defense. Both are young and inexperienced at this level so I’m expecting lots of nerves and maybe a few mistakes. I’m going with a 24 – 21 Houston win.
@HookTSB I just don’t think Andy Dalton is ready for the big time yet. If Jerome Simpson tries to flip over roided-up Brian Cushing there’s a good chance he becomes a paraplegic. Look for the Texans to cover and win.
