I am coming off what I think may well be the greatest holiday season of my life. Great times with my family. I work for a great company, go to a great church. Life is good! Thank you Lord!

Heading into the weekend, here are some things I’m thinking:

  1. The Alabama Crimson Tide reminds us that strength at the point of attack is what makes champions. Both their offensive and defensive lines are on a pro level.
  2. Speaking of point of attack, the Dallas Cowboys is going to be very dangerous in the playoffs. They are now my NFC Super Bowl pick. Forget the Romo conversation, the running game and offensive and defensive lines are currently the best in the league.
  3. Bama’s immediate future is bright. Their best offensive weapons are returning. Also, many forgot that Dont’a Hightower was their best defensive player until he got injured earlier this year. He’ll be back and they currently have commitments from 2 5-star DBs.
  4. 4 SEC championships in a row. Great TV deal with ESPN. I checked today and they have 6 schools currently in the top 10. Tennessee, Auburn, and Arkansas are on the way up. Alabama, LSU, and Florida are already there. Georgia is solid. Great high school programs in the South. The best coaches top to bottom in college football. And the most loyal fanbase overall in all of sports. Next year they will add their 5th in a row.
  5. This will be a huge NFL Draft if you are looking for defensive talent. Listen to these names – Ndamukong Suh, Gerald McCoy, Eric Berry, Taylor Mays, Sergio Kendle, Brandon Spikes, Joe Haden, Carlos Dunlap, Rolando McClain, Jerry Hughes, Terrence Cody, and Javier Arenas just to name a few.
  6. Jimmy Clausen will be the best QB in this draft.
  7. You draft a QB to hold down his spot for 10 years. Regardless of what you think of his passing ability, Tim Tebow’s physical style of play is non-conducive to this pro game.
  8. Colt McCoy is the next Drew Brees. He will make someone very happy in the 2nd round.
  9. New England Patriots have 4 picks in the first 2 rounds. Something tells me Jordan Shipley will be joining them as Wes Welker’s replacement.
  10. The first two rounds of the NFL playoffs are wide open. Here’s this weekend’s predictions – Dallas over Philly (sadly) 34-28. NE over Baltimore 21-10. Jets over Cincy (sadly) 27-10. And Green Bay over Arizona in the best game of the weekend, 41-35.

It’s cold in Georgia so I’m going to bundle up and simply enjoy a relaxing weekend.
