A Louisianian (and top safety in the country) is a backstabber to the state and commits to 'Bama over LSU...his mother lets him have it...


"I feel like LSU is a better place for him to be," she said. "LSU Tigers, number one. Go Tigers."

She even gave a "Geaux Tigers" on television.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Triple Overtime win for the Heat, no Wade, no LeBron, 115-109 against a ragingly improving Hawks.  Folks better watch out for Atlanta, if they keep this up they will end their play-off fodder past and just might advance for the first time in 40 odd years!

Also, I am looking excitedly towards the Falcons game, hoping they can do it! Don't be surprised further if Broncos dislodge Steelers, Pittsburg is WAY more injured then they are letting on and Denver has the best rush in the NFL.  Also the Lions Saints should be a legendary match up, these guys are combined for over 10,000 yards passing this season, Stafford is the fifth highest passer in ALL TIME! Drew Brees is numero uno


stay blessed,

Way to support your son Mom! ::) I wonder if she'll still be acting this way when he's making millions in the NFL. My guess is that she'll be behind him 100% then, with her hand held out. She disgraced her son on national television (well, actually, she disgraced herself.)

But believe me, I'm not counting on this commitment yet. I won't trust it until it's confirmed on signing day.

I agree with you, she shouldn't have done that. She should've voiced her concerns to him in private, but the decision is ultimately his and she needs to support him no matter where he goes...even if he's a traitor.  :-X

Yeah, everything after round 1 is pretty much just wistful thinking. Houston's on a three game loosing streak, and we came very close to making it four. We've got a strong chance there. Now New England is a different story altogether. But hey, any given Sunday...

A frightening defense matched with a fantastically efficient offense ;)

While Saints did beat Lions at the Superdome, the Lions even with out their three best defensive linemen managed to hold New Orleans to their lowest score at home all season, so considering that the entire Detroit defense is showing up hungry with something to prove, and Lions can match Saints offense, I'd say Who Dat better watch they backs.

And if that piece of crap Ndamukong Suh injures Drew, our back up Chase Daniel is more than willing to lead us through the play-offs. When Drew retires he'll be just as good (if not better).

I'm a Saints fan BTW. Lot's of BAMA fans here in Mississippi pull for the Saints.

I was just listening to the Saints post game show on the radio. They interviewed strong safety Roman Harper (a former Tide star) in the locker room, and he ended his comments with an emphatic "Roll Tide! Roll Tide!"   ;)

Saints 45 - 28 Detroit! HAHAHAHA I told ya'llllllll  :police:

Our next victim: the San Fran 49ers
You ain't told us nothing. ::) How many more games do the Ain'ts have to win before they win the Super Bowl?

They won the Super Bowl in 2010...so the 'aints title can leave.
Well, they're the Ain'ts again, because they ain't going to win the Super Bowl this year.

How many years did it take the Ducks to win another Rose Bowl...?
Who cares? ;D

That's what I thought.  :P
And you thought wrong. :P

Pete, I just realized you're trolling me. O.o
Have I told you before not to call me Pete? I hate that name.

Round 1:
Cincinnati
Pittsburgh
Detroit
Atlanta

So I'm 0-4 so far! While I don't really advocate gambling, if you are thus inclined, you may just want to bet against my picks for Round 2...  :P
"This is the cross - to become dead to the whole world, to suffer sorrows, temptations and other passions of Christ; in bearing this cross with complete patience, we imitate Christ's passion and thus glorify our God the Father as His sons in grace and co-heirs of Christ." --St. Symeon the New Theologian

Yet another example to me of why the NFL should abandon their sudden death overtime rule and embrace something like the Kansas Plan used at the high school and college levels. Denver wins the OT coin toss and receives the opening kick. Tebow then throws an 80-yard bomb, the Broncos score on the play, and the Steelers aren't even given a chance to answer.
