Quote of the day
"No matter how many interceptions he throws, no matter how many touchdowns he scores, that's Tim Tebow and I'm going to ride with him to the end. I hope he shut up a whole bunch of critics today." -- Denver linebacker Von Miller, after Tebow led the team on a final 95-yard TD drive to beat the Jets
It was an ugly win, one that should probably be credited to the defense. But the final 95-yard TD drive, led by Tim Tebow (who rushed for 57 of the yards in that drive), is what the game will be remembered for. The result was very Elway-like, even if the mechanics were anything but. Will the league eventually figure out how to stop him? Frankly, the league already has, except for those late 4th quarter heroics. And that’s where the Denver defense should be getting props, because without holding the score down (and even scoring the first Denver TD last night), Tebow wouldn’t even have his late-game opportunities. Regardless, Denver is 4-1 since Tebow took the helm.
Yesterday, I mentioned that some of the daily contest sites have started offering college basketball contests. FanDuel has taken a different approach to this, as compared to Daily Joust (see yesterday’s blurb). The FanDuel scoring formula is the same as the one they would be using for NBA games. And FanDuel is only including games in which both teams are from one of the six power conferences. For example, today’s contests include only these three games: Texas A&M vs. St. Johns, Colorado vs. Maryland, and Arizona vs Miss. State. No Lipscomb University. For more details on the Fanduel approach, click here.
FanDuel has also been offering a weekly football freeroll. For details, see see this thread. A description appears in the opening message, and the link for week 11 is in post #2.
