Tebow has Jesus on his side, but we all know Belichick's been in league with Satan since at least 2001.

My picks:
49ers
Patriots
Pack
Texans

Although I'll be ROOTING for the Broncos and Giants...just don't think they'll be able to win.

I'm a huge 49ers fan, and I think the Saints embarrass them.

Over in the Survivor pool, three of the four games went to the favorite - the team that had been picked by more players. The only game the pool didn't get right last week was the Tebows-Steelers game. Of course, that was also the game the pool was the most confident in (more players picked Pittsburgh than any of the other teams). Therefore, based on the current picks for the Divisional Round, this week's winners will probably be:

Saints at 49ers: New Orleans 4-2 = SAINTS
Broncos at Patriots: New England 5-0 = PATRIOTS
Texans at Ravens: Baltimore 8-1 = TEXANS
Giants at Packers: Packers 1-0 = PACKERS

I'm a huge 49ers fan, and I think the Niners will win tomorrow. The defense is going to play big and make this a slowed down affair. Alex Smith has been on a leash all year, but I think Harbaugh will take some shots at a soft Saints defense tomorrow. He's going to have to. They can't win with only field goals against this team.

Current lines (YMMV):

NO -3.5, 46.5 total
NE -13.5, 50
BAL -7.5, 36
GB -7.5, 53

I have to think the books are going to take in a lot of teaser action this weekend, particularly for the Sunday games.

The Niners haven't been embarrassed all season. I don't think it's going to start today. They're pretty damned resilient. I've been a 49er fan since 1976 and realistically I think they probably come up a little short today. But they won't be embarrassed. Of course I'm hoping for the best and wouldn't be completely surprised if they pulled the upset.

Game time is almost here.....lets go Niners!!!

During the 80's he always looked much older than he really was, now he's like 60 and he looks like he's in his thirties.

I'm rooting for SF, and I would take the 4 pts. Book it.
BAL ML, but not laying 9.
NYG +9.
Broncos +14.

This may be kind of odd but to me it's strange seeing the Saints in sunlight.

Eh they can still work down the field with Sproles.

49ers recover the fumble.

49ers need to score a TD here. Field goals aren't gonna beat this team.

It didn't look like he launched with his helmet from the replay.

True, but Sproles is absolutely no help in catching passes over everyone's heads.

SF looking good so far. If they would knock that off, that would be great.
