April 22nd 2010 The Day The Jacksonville Jaguars Moved To Los Angeles

Now before I get down to business I must admit that the idea for this article came from Bill Simmons’ “All Football Mailbag”.

On April 22nd 2010 the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted with their first round pick Tyson Alualu instead of quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow was not projected to go that high but many thought that they may draft him. The Jacksonville Jaguars are ranked 25th when it comes to attendance. Tebow was the hottest selling jersey in his rookie year alone and he’s Mr Florida playing and winning two National Championships for the Florida Gators. Now we don’t know how well Tebow would do on a team like the Jags but picture this combination: Tim Tebow and Maurice Jones-Drew aka Pocket Hercules. One could only assume that Jacksonville’s attendance problems would all but vanish. But they didn’t draft Tebow and are now stuck with a desolate stadium and a quarterback with the nickname “Yo Gabba Gabbert”. With LA still looking for a Football team, I can only assume that Jacksonville ┬áis on the top of the relocation list especially since they now have a new owner. There is one crazy situation that could take place but is highly doubtful. The Broncos could trade Tebow to Jacksonville for a 1st round pick, a second or third round pick and Blaine Gabbert. With the newly acquired first round pick and a little luck the Broncos could possibly draft Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin The Third. This trade of course would be unfavourable with the Denver faithful but their GM is none other than former Broncos QB John Elway. Elway is GOD to the Broncos faithful and one always looks to God (Elway) over Jesus (Tebow).

Conference Championship Picks

Since this site is only a few days old I haven’t been able to report on my favourite sport, FOOTBALL! I was unable to give my TEEEEEEEBBBBOOOOOWWWWWW rant, my report on how Peyton Manning is a shoe in for the 2011 MVP award or how in week 4 I said San Francisco wasn’t all that good. Thank God I never posted that. So let’s get down to business.

AFC Championship Game:

The AFC Championship game sees the New England Patriots (number one seed) playing the Baltimore Ravens (number two seed). This game will come down to one matchup: Joe Flacco vs The New England defence. The New England defence had the 2nd worst defence of all time. Now we know that Tom Brady will have a tough time with the Ravens D but he will probably score 24 points. So this leaves us with Mr Flacco. With the help of one of the best running backs in the league (Ray Rice), all he’ll have to do is score more than 24 points against the 2nd worst defence of ALL TIME!!

Pick: Baltimore

NFC Championship Game:

Th NFC Championship game pits The San Francisco 49ers (second seed) against The New York Giants (fourth seed). This game is an interesting one because, if New York wins they’ll just be adding to what is already a pretty crazy run. But if the 49ers win it will almost be enough to destroy the “bust” label that surrounds quarterback Alex Smith. It will also be the second time in three years that a first year coach (Jim Harbaugh), made the Super Bowl; the last being now fired Colts coach Jim Caldwell. Personally, I just can’t see Alex Smith putting up the amount of points he put up last week against the Saints. The Giants have a very good D and they won’t be embarrassed by the 49ers. All Eli Manning should have to do to bring his G-Men to the Super Bowl is score over 14 points.

Pick: The New York Giants
