Tebow responds to Jake Plummer's criticism

Detroit Lions v Denver BroncosGetty Images
Former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer recently offered a critique of current Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, not because of the way Tebow plays the game but because of the way Tebow expresses his religious beliefs before, during and after every game. Today Tebow responded.
In an interview on ESPN First Take, Tebow was asked about Plummer saying that he doesn’t need to say he loves Jesus Christ all the time. Tebow responded that, in fact, he does feel the need to say he loves Jesus Christ all the time, and he has no intention of stopping.
“If you’re married, and you have a wife, and you really love your wife, is it good enough to only say to your wife, I love her, the day you get married? Or should you tell her every single day when you wake up and have the opportunity? And that’s how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ,” Tebow said. “It is the most important thing in my life, so every opportunity I have to tell him I love him, or I’m given an opportunity to shout him out on national TV, I’m going to take that opportunity.”

NFL Playoff Picture for Week 12















With still 6 weeks of football left, there is plenty of room for things to shift and change.  However, if the season were to end today, this is how the playoff seeding would look.

Additionally, we will be producing our own playoff predictions as well.  So stay tuned.

**This snapshot from NFL.com shows the Texans ranked as the #2 seed, but it should be the Ravens.  The Ravens have the same record, and won their head to head match up.  Thanks to Alex for pointing this out.**

Waiver pickups Week 12


Fantasy football playoffs are starting soon. There are still some players out there that can be grabbed in time to help boost your team into the next round. Here's a list of a couple guys that are available in most leagues.

1) Kevin Smith: If you were among the 0.3 percent of ESPN owners who started Smith this week, congratulations. The fourth-year RB out of Central Florida found his way back to the Lions' starting lineup, and he did not disappoint. After scoring three touchdowns this past weekend, Smith will most likely be picked up by a good amount of leagues. Get him while you can, he's only owned in 0.8 percent of leagues.

2) Toby Gerhart: In light of Adrian Peterson's recent ankle injury, Gerhart is set to handle the majority of the work for the Vikings. He's only owned in 1.7 percent of leagues right now, but just like Smith, that number should skyrocket this week.

3) Caleb Hanie: Now don't expect Hanie to put up numbers like Aaron Rodgers, but if you're in need of a QB now, he might not be a bad option. He knows the offense in Chicago, and he actually looked decent in last year's playoff game when Cutler went down against the Packers. Practically no one owns Hanie, and if you have an extra roster spot, why not?

4) Titus Young: I'm not completely sold on Young's upside this year, but he has been productive lately. This week should be a good matchup for him, as the Lions take on the Packers. It is sure to be a shootout, and Young has scored in two of the last three weeks. If you're hurting at receiver, he's worth a shot.

It appears Norv Turner has reached the end of the road in San Diego

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, it would require a "miracle turnaround" for Norv Turner to stay on as the Chargers' head coach in 2012.
"It will take a miracle turnaround for Norv Turner to be the coach beyond this year," said Acee on NFL Network's Around the League segment on Monday. The Chargers have dropped five straight games and are in last place in the AFC West. ESPN's Jerry Rice also blamed Turner for the Chargers' 2011 collapse on SportsCenter Monday. "Norv Turner is one of those coaches that just can’t you over the hump," Rice said. "I played under this guy." The Chargers appear headed for their second straight playoffs-less season.

Patriots positioned for post-season run

Patriots' Gronkowski scores a touchdown over Chiefs' Johnson in their NFL football game in FoxboroughReuters
Here’s what we learned while watching the Patriotspound the Chiefs 34-3:
1. The end result was what everyone expected, but this game was very competitive in the first half. The Patriots offense had no points and 33 yards in their first four drives.
Once Tom Brady figured out what Chiefs coordinator Romeo Crennel was doing, New England got rolling. They had 276 yards and 20 points in their next four drives.
2. Rob Gronkowski caught four passes for 96 yards and two touchdowns. He’s starting to add big plays and tackle-breaking yards after the catch to his arsenal. Throw in Gronk’s blocking, and he’s the best all around tight end in football.  He’s become an impossible cover and perhaps a more valuable part to the Patriots offense than Wes Welker.
