So, Tebowmania will fade for now thanks to Brady and Co. handing the Broncos a thrashing to the tune of 45-10. This, to me isn’t really a surprise. If you can’t create turnovers and keep your offense on the field, Brady will burn you. So even though this game is the on that got all the hype, it was boring and predictable.

The real game was in San Francisco Saturday. If you missed it, I feel for you. As a football fan (of neither of these teams) I was enthralled. The super powered offense of the Saints and Drew Brees playing out of his skull versus a defense that has stifled everyone and has really sailed under the radar all year. The┬áproverbial unstoppable force vs the immovable object. It didn’t disappoint. FANTASTIC GAME! The whole game you were just waiting to see if the Saints could break away and do what they do. It took until late in the 4th quarter but they showed themselves as “Who we thought they were” Denny Green would say. But what was so great about this game was the Niners ability to fight back! Not once, but twice Alex Smith (go figure) and Vernon Davis go into “beast mode” and do what needs to be done to win. WOW! I only hope to see SF play Green Bay next week to settle the old adage; “You have to beat the best to be the best.” We will see later today.

That football season is almost over! NO!!! This is my most dreaded time of year. The time in between when NFL football ends and when Baseball gets cranked up. I’m not a hug NBA fan at all and NHL is good during the playoffs but not much else for me. So, I have the Superbowl to look forward to, then March Madness, then Opening Day for MLB. Almost 2 months of meaningless sporting events… Ugh! What about baseball? Any fans out there? Give me some early predictions on the upcoming season. Here’s hoping the Reds get it together again; last year was hard to watch.
