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.
