Totally opposite reaction. I love the Pats, and this, like everything Tom Brady has ever touched, is amazing, but I love Tebow, and I wish him well next year.

NOW SUPER BOWL HERE WE COME! I'll be in Foxboro next week!

You better hope Tebow has no miracles in his back pocket for this game. If he can lead his Broncos back to victory now, fans will virtually be hailing him as the Messiah!

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
That was the best game of the century. I'm crying with you Daniel.

Oh my I love the Patriots.

Cuz I've been rooting for em all season I was almost crying for the 49erz until Harbaugh proved yet again that they are real deal as if four from behind come-backs on the road wasn't convincing enough..

I thought Saints had it and that hurt until with 9 seconds to spare San Francisco pulled off a miracle..

by the way to the Tebow haters, he is is second year, second string quarterback, why all the hatred? Would the Tom Bradys and the Drew Breeses of the world been as successful as Tim if they were second year second string QBs? The brother set TWO all-time NFL play-off records for passing while taking his long shot team from the bottom of their division to the playoffs without ever getting cocky or primadona about it, cut the guy some slack. Denver can hang their hat up high on this season, they came back from the bottom to win their division and also a play-off game against the Super Bowl record holding Steelers, if that isn't an honest accomplishment what is?




Go Ravens.  Ravens Niners Superbowl

stay blessed,
habte selassie

Remember I called it at Thanksgiving yo, its a Harbaugh brother Superbowl this year Wink

stay blessed,

The NFL is awesome! What an epic nail-biter between Denver and New England. Wow! The playoffs are so exciting! I can't wait until they fix this boring college football nonsense and make it as exciting as the pros! I hope they make it fair and have a 50 team college playoff at the end of the regular season. Yeah! That's what we need. Make it just like the pros! Pro football is awesome! Man, those guys lay it all on the line for their city and their team. What passion! What tradition! And isn't cool how they make the players wear their socks all the way up to their knees?! That's very, very important. Those dumb college guys probably get their legs scratched all the time. And don't forget those great NFL fight songs and dedicated fan bases! Why don't these idiots hurry up and change college football and make it just like the pros?!

Whine about socks and lack of marching bands, but the fact of the matter is, that whoever goes to the Superbowl has EARNED their way there, and isn't at some meaningless bowl because a bunch of Sports writers thought they should be there. If you watched the New Orleans/San Francisco game, you would see why those of us who love pro-football love it so much. The underdog fighting and clawing his way to beat the former champ. It was a beautiful game!

Following College football is a waste of time, because no matter how good your team might be, if the BCS Sports writers don't like 'em, tough luck! So keep your marching bands; we'll keep what the game is really about  -- COMPETITION!

Agreed, I was so emotional during this game because up until the last 9seconds it really seemed that the Saints were going to do it. I was almost teary eyed like Davis yo..

The 9erz have been out almost as long as my Raiderz so this was a serious accomplishment for them on so many levels..


 San Francisco set an NFL post-season record for two lead-changing TDs in the final 3 minutes of a play-off game.  Like I said before, miraculous.

Yeah, I like the Saints and was hoping they'd win. However, that was the most boring close game I've ever watched. The defense in the last five minutes of that game was absolutely pitiful on both sides. Ridiculous. And the announcers couldn't have sounded less enthusiastic about the whole affair. But it doesn't matter either way, because the losers still have their cash and their agents and their endorsement deals. And who knows, a lot of those players may be playing for the other team next year. But hey, I know that many people love this kind of thing. Obviously I ain't one of them. Wink

Funny my iyah, I was thinking the exact same thing about college football Wink


All sports are a distraction, but for me, the more social the more functional, but I like college for education so I feel that the hype in college sports is sort of a conflict of interest, but I can respect what folks are into just the same, even if I think it is silly, all sports are silly in their own way, but as long as folks get along rather then get into bar fights that is all that counts in the end.

If you think Alabama v. LSU in the National Championship wasn't about competition, then you obviously don't understand football. (No disrespect.)

Yes, Gebre, I'm well familiar with your love of Alabama football, and their stupid "Roll Tide, Roll" motto. I've already accepted the idea that if it ain't Alabama football, then it isn't football to you.

I went to this year's Clemson vs. USC game and had a great time. My boyfriend is from South Carolina, just outside of Columbia. Also, I lived in Atlanta for two years and saw first hand how big SEC football is down there. And that's great. I'm glad you enjoy it.

However, I'm in the North East, where college football doesn't mean squat to us here in Jersey.

You wanna love your college football, find. but you don't have to come and rain on the parade of those of us who actually enjoy Pro-football.

The NFL is awesome! What an epic nail-biter between Denver and New England. Wow! The playoffs are so exciting! I can't wait until they fix this boring college football nonsense and make it as exciting as the pros! I hope they make it fair and have a 50 team college playoff at the end of the regular season. Yeah! That's what we need. Make it just like the pros! Pro football is awesome! Man, those guys lay it all on the line for their city and their team. What passion! What tradition! And isn't cool how they make the players wear their socks all the way up to their knees?! That's very, very important. Those dumb college guys probably get their legs scratched all the time. And don't forget those great NFL fight songs and dedicated fan bases! Why don't these idiots hurry up and change college football and make it just like the pros?!

Whine about socks and lack of marching bands, but the fact of the matter is, that whoever goes to the Superbowl has EARNED their way there, and isn't at some meaningless bowl because a bunch of Sports writers thought they should be there. If you watched the New Orleans/San Francisco game, you would see why those of us who love pro-football love it so much. The underdog fighting and clawing his way to beat the former champ. It was a beautiful game!

Following College football is a waste of time, because no matter how good your team might be, if the BCS Sports writers don't like 'em, tough luck! So keep your marching bands; we'll keep what the game is really about  -- COMPETITION!
Actually, the [Associated Press] sports writers sent the BCS an order to cease and desist from taking the results of their weekly poll into account in computing the BCS rankings. Evidently, the sports writers want nothing to do with the BCS; they want a playoff tournament instead, just like all the lower divisions of college football and all the other NCAA Division I sports have.

Now you didn't have to go and call our "Roll Tide" slogan stupid. That was not nice.Sad But I admit that my comments were probably offensive to those of you who love pro football. However, this is the sports thread, and I felt the need to get that off of my chest. I'll never understand how hard working people can pay their hard earned money and become so emotionally invested in a bunch of overpaid individuals who are essentially playing for nothing more than themselves. But I don't fault the players, because they are merely adhering to the product that was created by the masses who are willing to finance such a lackluster product. But I apologize if I offended you. We all have our own tastes, and as Habte said, each to his own. I do confess that I'm a college football snob. Embarrassed

I have no idea how much truth there is to any of this, but it is very interesting:

http://neworleansrising.wordpress.com/2012/01/13/is-there-smoke-is-there-another-reason-why-lsu-lost/


Here is what I posted in response to it:


What most people today do not understand is how important character is. That’s why BAMA has won two National Championships in three years. Saban recruits character, molds character, and teaches character. He doesn’t tolerate less (no pun intended). I was surprised we lost the first game, because it was obvious to me that we were much classier than the trash talking Tigers. But sometimes great athletes will win, even if they win without discipline. But in the end, character prevailed and the TIDE got their second title in three years. Miles is a great recruiter, and I think he’s a very good coach. But he has to jettison the “player’s coach” role and establish some discipline down on the Bayou. Will see if he’s cut out to do so. If he doesn’t, he may still win some SEC titles and even a National Title with the pure ability that he’s able to recruit. But he’ll never match Saban, and the TIDE will leave the Tigers in the dust. Class and character matter- in sports and in life. I’m proud of our Crimson Tide; and even though LSU is our rivals, I sincerely do hope that Les Miles learns to start emphasizing character in his coaching. Congrats to LSU on their SEC title. ROLL TIDE!!!


Selam

I, for the most part agree with you. You really hit the nail on the head, Les really is a player's coach. I'm friends with Brad Wing (Punter) and Terrence Magee (Running Back) and they said that Les doesnt stress the class and character aspect too much, which was very apparent to begin with.

Really the only thing stopping me from going to walk on tryouts in the spring is the fact that I can't stand the man. lol

it is not Charitable for one to assume the inner motives of why one is playing.

I could also say the reverse, if i so desired. Why do hard working people want to pay for a bunch of individuals, who dont have to worry about paying for college or many other things, that go to a school that I never attended, and as such have no ties to.

If you want to say that the sport at the NFL level is an inferior product and sport, then please, go ahead. I will not argue with you for a moment. I believe the same thing about the NCAA basketball and the NBA

I like how none of the receivers on GB can catch. Come on.

Okay, I'm going to go out on a limb and offer some predictions for next week's conference championship games.

AFC:  Ravens def. Patriots
NFC:  49ers def. Giants

Super Bowl:  I don't know, but it promises to be a boring game--not much offense, but a helluvalot of good defense.

Well, I guess that makes this year's Packers the charter member of that ignominious club. Vince Lombardi must be rolling in his grave right now.
