Hey, what’s up?
With only three games left, what are you planning to do in the NFL off-season? I am going to Indy for Super Bowl weekend. I have a few appearances to make and some friends to see. Then I’m going to Hawaii with my mom to visit my brother. I haven’t been there since I was a kid, so I’m looking forward to ho’oluana, which means “to relax” in Hawaiian. That should be pretty cool.
All you have to do is send me a creative photo (via my Twitter or Facebook) rocking the #28 jersey, and the best pic wins! Winner will be announced in my next post—right before the Super Bowl–so get to work.
The underdog 49ers beat the Saints 36-32. There were several lead changes in the last five minutes, but the Niners wanted it more. Any NFL game can be close, it often comes down to big plays, and the 49ers made a few more than the Saints. Drew Brees made some great passes, but Alex Smith and Vernon Davis came up clutch.
The favored Patriots overwhelmed Denver 45-10 because they were supposed to win, LOL! No need to analyze the game much. That option-style Bronco offense that launched Tebow-mania ran smack into three-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady and his experienced Patriots, and New England was simply the better team.
It was close, but the Ravens beat the Texans 20-13 with the help of four turnovers, including two in the first quarter that got them an early 17-3 lead. Mistakes are magnified in the playoffs—they change momentum and Baltimore took advantage.
The Giants upset the champion Packers 37-20 and like I said, I thought the Packers were beatable. The Giants did their homework, knew what they were up against, and mistakes played a big part as they forced four turnovers. That Hail Mary TD pass to Hakeem Nicks at the end of the first half was a statement play: “We’re here to win, and we’re all in!”
