Quote of the day
"Well, I sucked pretty bad today, but our defense saved us." -- New England QB Tom Brady, after a 23-20 win over Baltimore in which he threw for no touchdowns and two interceptions
Imagine if Tim Tebow had won a game yesterday that way that Brady and the Patriots did. That would have cemented his reputation as Godís favorite. As it was, Tebow was watching at home, and Brady was putting up a Tebow-worthy statistical performance. Joe Flacco had a much better stat line. But somehow, the karma seemed to be aligned with the Pats. And so we have a rematch of Super Bowl 42 (XLII for those of you in Rome), while the Harbaugh family has every right to be collectively curled up in fetal positions right now.
About all thatís still up for grabs in Football Pickoff is the Playoff prize. Kudos to blondiescookies2, who has effectively clinched the full-season title. Yes, I know there is a mathematical possibility that he can be caught if the odds turn out to be very unbalanced and he throws caution to the wind, but neither of those contingencies seems likely.
