What a Game !

Commentary submitted by Broadway    


For the record, I did predict on the air on Saturday that the Giants would win 24-21 with Eli as the MVP. I wanted to just say that the G-men would cover, but those FL folks wanted me to pick a winner of the actual game. The outcome was not a shock to me, as the Pats aura of invincibility was shrinking each week – and then the crippled Chargers took them to the limit in their own building.

It was a pleasure to enjoy the game more than the commercials. The scales are starting to even out as it pertains to competitiveness.

It’s was nice watching Peyton turn into one of the biggest Giant fans, if only for a day, and I couldn’t help but think how close it was for them to be competing. It may happen one day, but once the magic of this playoff run wears out, the Giants are not likely to return anytime soon.

I don’t think this run would have taken place had Tiki still been on the team.

Vegas has been doing just fine with the Pats for the last 6 weeks, +/-. However, I did lose a bundle when I was promised that the Steelers would cover the number in Forborough – I was even guaranteed to take the money line – my biggest loss of my weekend in Vegas in early December.

What a great way to end the season! What a game!

Jaguars Bandwagon? Be Sure to wear a Seatbelt

Please people, just stop. The Jags have NO CHANCE of beating New England this weekend in the AFC Divisional Playoffs. Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past four months, you may have noticed that the Patriots are pretty good. I know, I know, it’s cool now to “hate” the Pats, with all of their silly winning and stuff. But Jacksonville? Please, did anyone actually watch the Jags/Steelers game last week. The Jags scored after a 96 yard kickoff return, an INT for a TD, and another TD set up by an interception. Ben Roethlisberger was simply horrible in the first half and basically allowed the Jags to get a big lead.

Of course, Ben and the Steelers turned the game around in the second half and if it wasn’t for some bonehead management by rookie coach Mike Tomlin, the game would have gone to overtime and who knows what would’ve happened. David Garrard made a play when it mattered, no doubt. But is this the guy you are counting on to beat the best team in the league on the road in the playoffs? You sure about that?

This game will be ugly, and get out of hand very quickly if the Jags offense performs like it did last week in Pittsburgh. I like New England BIG. Like I said, if you’re jumping on the Jags bandwagon, be sure to buckle up.
