Femmefans and football fans we are fast approaching the end of the regular season.
With only 5 games left for 30 teams (4 for the Saints and the Falcons), this week’s slate has important playoff implications.
I am making my bold “The Crystal Ball Says” week 13 picks below. I am also providing links (below) to picks made by Barabara Bruno, Huffington Post and the ESPN Experts.
As a Forty Niners season ticket holder for the last 15 years, I am riding high this season. Last season wasn’t bad either. Good things do come to those who wait, and wait, and wait.
We should have expected Harbaugh to kick the tires on Number Seven. Now that he has kicked the tires, and sees that the reliable Chevy, Smith, can still run but needs a little time to warm up and may not be able to shift into fourth gear, but that Kap goes from 0-60 in no time flat, well, the brand new sports car is going to get the nod.
The opportunity to try out the new wheels came when Alex suffered a concussion in the Rams game. In came “Kap” and he rallied the team getting them in position to win the game in OT. The “Kid” looked good in his first “up at bat”.
Serendipity was on Harbaugh’s side. Alex wasn’t able to shake off the concussion symptoms for the next game against the Bears.
Notre Dame has moved up in the BCS rankings all year long, and after Saturday’s win against Wake Forest, beating them 38-0, the Fighting Irish is the only team that has not been defeated. Oregon lost against Stanford in overtime, and Kansas State lost against Baylor, leaving Notre Dame as the only undefeated team. If any critics had any doubts about the Irish, wondering if they deserved to be ranked so high in the standings, wondering if they deserved to be considered for the BCS championship game, Saturday’s win should have convinced them, improving to 11-0 for the first time since 1989.
