Much like the New England Patriots the past couple of years, I’ve chosen to take the first round of the NFL playoffs off. Last year I watched the Patriots lose to the Jets at a bar in Miami. This year, similarly scared and unable to bare the thought of being in New England, I’ll watch the Patriots try to quell Tebow-Time for the second time this season from St. John in the US Virgin Islands.
That’s right folks, it’s vacation time once again. It seems like a perfectly opportune time to go off the grid, and if the Patriots do lose to Mr. Tebow, good luck finding me somewhere in St. John or the British Virgin Islands. I’ll have no access to the internet, so rant away.
I’ll be sailing around on this boat until next Wednesday, but I’d never be so cruel as to leave you without my NFL playoff picks. Here we go:
Saints vs 49ers – Saints win. Drew Brees lights up the 49ers offense, and this game isn’t particularly close.
Patriots vs Broncos – Patriots win, despite a scare. Tim Tebow’s season is still a great story and should be appreciated as one.
Texans vs Ravens – Ravens win. They are just scarier.
Giants vs Packers – Giants win. I don’t think I’ve ever picked the Giants to win before, let alone against a 15-1 team. I don’t think they are the championship team that the Packers are, but I think their defense will play great and Eli will be good enough. They eek out the win. Yes I want a Patriots-Giants rematch that badly.
