Three Cheers for the Niners

No way I would have guessed that Alex Smith and Eli Manning would join Tom Brady as the best QBs this weekend.

Though I was for the Saints, I had to applaud the winning pass from Smith to TE Davis in the end zone.  He courageously zipped the ball in traffic before Davis broke--a play that could have easily been tipped and intercepted if the pass was not in that small completion window.

Congrats to the 49ers.

And, though I appreciate that Hakeem Nicks has supported my argument in that he has the potential to be a dominant fantasy receiver with his outstanding playoff performance (over 250 yards and 4 TDs receiving), I keep thinking: why could you not score like this consistently during the regular season? 

I mean being the #11 overall receiver is good, but my fantasy team sure could have used that production.

Oh well. 


  1. I'm not a fan of the Saints or Drew Brees's Nyquil commercials. I bet against them so I was glad for the 49ers to pull through.

    And about Alex Smith...Brother and I argued for a good 20 min about his name. He SWORE up and down that it was Emitt Smith. Clearly he should listen to me when it comes to players. haha

  2. Superbowl prediction: Ravens: 21, Niners: 17.
