What a show this weekend!
Great Football Weekend
Just some great action all weekend and maybe the best football game I have ever seen.
San Francisco 49ers 36, New Orleans Saints 32
My beloved Saints could not hold on to the football in the face of a brutal San Francisco defense. I have never seen so many great tackles and perfect hits as I did on Saturday. The Niners are well coached.
Even after 6 turnovers, the Saints grabbed the lead with just 1:30 to go or so. And then the 49ers made some magic happen. It was an epic tilt and I believe the best football game I have ever seen. I am disappointed the Saints lost, but you cannot take anything away from those Niners, tip of the hat.
New England Patriots 45, Denver Broncos 10
A nasty, angry, motivated Patriots team obliterated the Broncos. Tom Brady was in the zone and the game was over by the half. Even the defense looked reasonable!
Baltimore Ravens 20, Houston Texans 13
The Texans actually controlled this game, but made too many mistakes (recurring theme this weekend) to overcome. Ravens are so tough on defense, just a great unit.
New York Giants 37, Green Bay Packers 20
The big upset. Again, just too many fumbles and drops. Did anyone want to win this weekend? Bizarre. Giants D-line has that 2008 playoff run look.
Going to be a great Championship weekend.
US markets closed tomorrow, I am doing some work tonight and more tomorrow and will have commentary then.
Have a good night.
