What do you think?


There have been many interesting and thought-provoking things being written about how we are reacting to Denver Bronco QB  Tim Tebow and his faith, and public expression of it.  They will provide some insight into our culture.

Chuck Klosterman usually writes about pop culture but his insight it American culture in general is very interesting.

A great point from a non-believer from Fox Sports:  Why do we Hate Tim Tebow

Rick Reilly compares and contrasts Tim Tebow with Tom Brady in advance of the Broncos/Patriots game this Sunday

the Wall Street Journal has covered the Tebow excitement many times:

Denver’s New Favorite Mensch

Ahhhhhh……the NFL (including Picks)

I suppose I should have made my picks on Friday at the latest but was tired and busy.  Then, our TV goes “kerplunk” on opening weekend for football.  Not that I have much time in the afternoon, after all, I work some on Sunday.  Sunday Night Football, though, is a great way to end a busy day.  I am worn out (mainly because I am an introvert) and falling asleep on the couch to football is so relaxing.

Plus, Jets against the Cowboys is a great game.  I am not a huge Jets fan but like to root for local teams (excepting Yankees in baseball).  And….I love to root against the Cowboys.  It’s a sign of love for my friends.  There are so many Cowgirl fans and I know so many, that I love it when they fail.

I was listening to the radio last night and loved it.  Assumed the Jets would lose.  They should have lost.  The main difference (besides luck) is that the Jets have won a few comebacks/close games in the last two seasons, as well as playing some tight playoff games.  Dallas, with all their talent haven’t done much of that.  Poor Romo.

Anyway, my picks:



Green Bay Packers


Philly Eagles


New Orleans Saints


Arizona Cardinals

Wild Cards:   Washington Redskins, Atlanta Falcons



Pittsburgh Steelers


Tennessee Titans


New Jersey Jets


San Diego Chargers

Wild Cards:  New England Patriots, Houston Texans

There are surprises each season.  I took some risks for fun.  Who do you expect to make the playoffs?
