Mark My Words:

Here are the pro and college lines that I would put money on, and why:

San Diego +3 over TENNESSEE - With Keith Bulluck out for Tennessee, I look for San Diego to be able to establish the run on the road. That should help set up the play action pass downfield to Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd for at least one deep ball, which could make the difference in this game. Chris Johnson could have a big day running between the tackles as opposed to outside against San Diego's depleted interior DL.

NEW ORLEANS -14 over Tampa Bay - New Orleans' secondary has been vulnerable of late in their defensive backfield and their pass protection. Tampa Bay has been unable to throw the ball downfield consistently, nor have they been able to rush the passer. I look for New Orleans to win in a blowout.

ARIZONA -14 over St. Louis - St. Louis is starting a third string quarterback against an aggressive Arizona secondary. Look for Arizona's offense to score at will on the St. Louis defense.

SAN FRANCISCO -12 over Detroit - Detroit is starting their third string quarterback against a strong 49'er defense. While Frank Gore should be able to run against Detroit's front 7, the key to this game will be Alex Smith exploiting Detroit's secondary, which has lacked talent all season, and is now even more depleted due to injury. If Smith can't pull this one off, he'll likely be out of a job.


  1. The NFL Draft is creating a partnership with researchers at Boston University who are studying the long-term effects of brain injuries on players, the Associated Press reported. “It’s huge that the NFL Draftactively gets behind this research,” Robert Cantu, the co-director of the school’s research program, told the AP. “It forwards the research. It allows players to realize the NFL Draft is concerned about the possibility that they could have this problem and that the NFL Draft is doing everything it can to find out about the risks and the preventive strategies that can be implemented.”
    Merry Christmas! And have a good time!

  2. In every sport that we like, we do have our own desired players and beloved teams that we prove so much. .We examine all their sport and cheer them on when they get a tally. We also tend to shout motivational cheers when they play awfully. We even buy posters, auburn mugs, t-shirts jerseys and other stuffs containing the players names and the name of the bunch that we dearest so much. This is how most of the sports fans espousal their well-loved sports icons and teams.
    Sports fans most specifically buy jerseys in blanket. NFL Shop.Wholesale NFL jersey are in deed very salable to most of the football fans not only in the United States of America but in the entire world, as well. Buying general NFL jerseys is very advantageous because this is one way of receiving these jerseys in a cheaper prices. This way, fans may be able to buy as many jerseys as they can.

    NFL jerseys– the Great Transformation The new football season begins with the mock draft for die hard fans and fantasy GM’s alike. The golden rule of the NFL Draft is that unless you already have a “Franchise” signal caller you do not pass on one, which should go without saying, if you have the chance to aquire a nfl draft pick that’s a team leader you had better give thanks to the Football GOD”s for they may have saved a lot of jobs. Drafting a franchise quaterback has the ability to launch a team into playoff mode for five to ten years if the skill positions are filled adequately and the “O” line can stay in front of at least one defending player. How many times have you seen your teams’ QB sacked and all the O linemen are standing in front of the D linemen as they’re getting off the quarterback, all they would need is a red towel and we’d be in for a bull fight.
