    Beat by Both; A Lions fan's perspective on Saints/Forty-Niners

    The Reality TV edge is actually more one-sided in favor of the Saints, thanks to Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian on our resume!

    I love the analogy of a Zima-swilling 49ers fan . In the midwest there were all sorts of bandwagon Niners fans back in the Walsh/Siefert days. Now, they're as hard to find as a ... Zima!

    Some Interesting (to me) stats on NO, GB, and SF

    Agreed Shakin'. Seventeen points is pretty good, and I've pointed out before, if they keep the other team from scoring more, then they've done their jobs.

    Seems like it's possible the game may be a very low-scoring contest, though with the Saints' on either end, I could clearly be wrong.

    I hope they can contain Gore. Like the guy at Seattle last year, he's a bulldozer.

    I have no stats to back up my comment but the Saints D has REALLY stood up as of late. They are holding offenses to a minimum score as well as turning up the heat in the 2nd half. I know EVERYONE picks on the Saints D because they allow a lot of yardage but does that matter if they "step up" when it matters most? I believe our boys on D will actually become the heroes of the postseason!

    So c'mon boys! Make me right!!

    My thoughts exactly, Mark. Great comment.

    Kudos to Bama. They came prepared and kicked butt. Kudos to Nick Saban who prepared his team. Bama's d-line was overwhelming LSU's o-line.
    I noticed Bama was dug in the trenches ready to stop LSU's option attack.

    So what does LSU and Les Miles do? The run the option and ONLY throw screens to the corners.

    I wasn't at this game as I was lucky enough to attend the last 2 BCS Championships LSU won. I read that receivers were open down field most of the evening.

    I believe if LSU moved to a straight up running game and pro style offense, Bama would have been caught off guard.

    As for Les.... SHAME ON YOU for attempting to destroy the potential PRO career of Jarrett Lee. SHAME! LSU was 8 - 0 under Lee. Les, what you did was hurt Lee's career, but you also hurt Jefferson who is NOT pro quality to start with - and he proved that in the big game.

    Tebow Is Winning Me Over

    Did anyone notice how many yards Tebow passed for last week? 316, as in 3:16, John 3:16. Coincidence? IDK, Tebow 3:16, Nostradamus predicts the world ends in 2012, the Mayan Calendar ends 12/21/2012, the Lions make the playoffs ... this very well could be the 'end times'.

    just sayin'.

    IMO, this is all becoming a big sociological experiment ... how much attention, adoration and defamation can one man (Tebow) possibly receive and still remain humble and unchanged? Sponsored by ESPN.

    What's not to like? Tebow is the ultimate winner with the game on the line. That's why you play. It doesn't matter if it's pretty or not.

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    Everson Griffen had a first round rating and fell to the fouth. Charles Brown had a first round rating and fell to the bottom of the second. Cam Thomas was expected to go in the second and fell to the fifth.

    Locker and Ponder went at the top of the first. Tyson Alualu went at the top of the first. TIM TEBOW WENT IN THE FIRST ROUND!

    Injury and character issues push players down: Da'Quan Bowers and Mike Williams.

    GMs try to outsmart the room and make questionable picks in the first round and continue to do so in every other round. Good players, for what ever reason, fall.

    I'd be surprised if Hightower fell, but stranger things have happened. I'd be surprised if Crick was available in the fourth, but he did miss most of the year with injury...There is also the possibility that Hightower, Fleener, Crick and Wolfe are stupid and fall because of that.

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    I had Cam Johnson DE, Virgina as the player i would move up to get but i have changed my mind after watching him play more.

    Bruce Irvin, OLB 6- 2 245, is a very interesting prospect. combine will move him up the boards to the top of the 2nd and maybe even into the first. his interviews may drop him into the third. He is a tweener OLB/DE i would love to see at WLB teamed with Martez Wilson at SLB. Speed speed and more speed with great football skills. 34 vs 43 who cares with his skill set.

    Dontari Poe, DT 6-5 350lbs declared hmmm combine will make him or break him.


    Round 2-
    Donta Hightower - ILB ? really? he will be long gone
    Vinny Curry - interesting off the board. over hyped?
    Round 3- Jarius Wright - jitter bug still looking at him.
    Round 4- Coby Fleener - maybe in the 2nd
    Round 4- Jared Crick - in the 4th? mid second round
    Round 5- Derek Wolfe - in the 5th? steal
    Rounds 6 and 7- Your Call

    Tebow Is Winning Me Over

    I didn't realize there were so many Tebowphobes out there.

    Personally, I don't get it. What I don't get the most, however, is the part where people criticize his ability to play QB. I guess everybody else saw something different when he was in college, because I thought he was awesome running and passing. Why does Philip Rivers never get criticized for his mechanics?

    Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

    Also, I wonder what would happen if Tebow was a Muslim quarterback? What if, on the sideline, he pulled out his prayer rug, faced east toward Mecca and started bobbing up and down?

    I bet I am not the only person who would feel annoyed about that.

    This is not a Christian nation. I mean isn't that a given? This nation was founded by religious refugees who arrived here to escape religious persecution. A fundamental tenant of our Constitution is freedom of religion. Football is not a Christian sport. Tim Tebow needs to practice his faith outside of the range of the cameras.

    Tebow Is Winning Me Over

    I seem to remember something about practicing your faith in the closet, and to beware of those who do it in public.

    Put another way, Tebow doing it on his stage is much the same as one who puts on a play, and acts, and recites lines, for those who are watching to look.

    Like it or not, he's on his stage, and when he does this stuff in the public eye, it is done for the purpose of serving it up to the masses. I want to watch a football game, not have someone push a particular brand of religion.

    I can't say it bothers me greatly. I just think he's kind of stupid, and displaying his stupidity by not keeping his own personal Jesus, to himself.

    Would a football team come in and start passing, blocking, and playing in a church congregation? It's out of place, much like religion in government is out of place, and inappropriate, and whenever someone does that, it is shoving it down my gullet. I don't want to see it, and I don't watch football for someone to preach it. But I support his right to worship as he wishes, with others, in the proper context, because that is America.

    poor stats, poor mechanics, "waa, he talks about Jesus & that offends me," overhyped, -- etc etc.

    He's a winner. He finds a way. He gives credit to his teammates. And he smiles.

    He's a great pick, and he hasnt even begun to reach his potential.

    Tebow Is Winning Me Over

    I am able to give credit when it is due....and my feelings have absolutely nothing to do with him as a person. At his present level he just doesn't deserve the press he is receiving. He has had a good game mixed in but far more less than mediocre showings. Just because I would probably allow him to date my daughter doesn't mean he is a good qb.

    Tebow Is Winning Me Over

    Some interesting responses. Good stuff. Believe me, until recently I would have been the last man on this earth to defend Tebow, but please let me say this:

    His thanking Jesus at every opportunity, in my opinion at least, is not "shoving his religion down everyone's throat". Christians are supposed to do that. I very much dislike those who want to come into my office or show up at my home and discuss with me their take on passage "X" from chapter "Y" in Bible version "Z". As a believer, I can only offer my opinion, which is to say there are enough flavors of "Being a Christian" as to make it clear to anyone paying attention that nobody really knows, right?

    What Tim is doing is what he is supposed to be doing. He's not forcing it down our throats. He has an amazing platform from which he can express his Christianity, but up and until he stands behind the mic and tells me I have it wrong because I believe some thing or the other, then he can pretty much praise Jimmy Hoffa for all I care.

    My point was just to say that my disdain for the guy came initially from the fact that he played for the competition in the SEC. It then morphed into the hype at draft time, and lately has been fueled by the over-coverage of a person I consider to be a sub-standard NFL QB.

    Still, he wins and his team is one game from the AFC Championship. Of course Brady will wipe the floor with Denver, again, but that really isn't the point.

    For all my dislike for the guy, I'm just confessing that, in general, it has very little to do with HIM, the person...the individual. He seems like a very sincere, hard working, devoted, classy, respectful young man doing the best he can, and stats be damned, he's doing pretty good.

    Don't we - shouldn't we - give him props for that?

    Living in Florida and not being a Gators fan I cannot tell you how tired I am of hearing his name. What gets me is the attention he is receiving as he is probably in the bottom five of all NFL starters. There are couple of guys who are in the middle of the pack as far a talent and have not received near the hype, Smith or Dalton as two examples. Let him succeed or let him fail I don't care either way, but I wish I could have the wasted hours of my life back or $1.00 for each time I heard his name.
