    The Atlanta Falcons blew a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl.

    The Georgia Bulldogs blew a 20-7 lead in the College Football Championship Game.

    Maybe instead of the "Peach State", we should call Georgia the "Choke In The Big Game State"

    And the Atlanta Braves blew a 3-1 lead in the 1958 World Series and a 2-0 lead in the 1996 World Series!

    I agree that he was the best NBA player of all time when 1980 rolled around!

    It is strange that none of the favorites in all four games covered the spread? Perhaps some are right when they say that the playoffs start a new season.

    Here's the latest:

    New England -13.5
    Pittsburgh -7.5
    Minnesota -3.5
    Atlanta -3

    Who you like?

    I'm guessing a lot of people will take Jacksonville +7.5 because they beat Pittsburgh, at Pittsburgh, by the score of 30-9 back in October.

    CBS is praying Pittsburgh wins.

    A Steelers vs. Patriots AFC Championship Game will draw probably twice the audience, than Jaguars vs. Patriots.

    I don't know all the lingo here.

    What does it mean to "like the points," "take the points," and "give the points?" There may be other phrases but these are the ones I'm wondering about now.

    THE LORD JESUS CHRIST IS RISEN. Matthew 28:6 (KJV) Mark 16:6 (KJV) Luke 24:6 (KJV)

    Romans 10:9 (KJV) 1st Corinthians 15:14 (KJV)

    Trevor: "I know how to drive, man."
    Ricky: "You also know how to be stupid."

    When you look at the following point spread you can understand that Atlanta is the favorite to win the game:

    Atlanta At Philadelphia +3

    If you take the points or you like the points that means that at the end of the game you can add three points to Philadelphia's score and if that total is more than Atlanta's score then you win the bet.

    I got one right and one wrong so during the play-offs I have picked five right and one wrong. Now for today's games:

    At Pittsburgh -7 Jacksonville
    At Minnesota -5 New Orleans

    I hate to do it but I am taking Pittsburgh and giving the points. Antonio Brown needs a big game or otherwise the Steelers are going to have a difficult time winning, much less covering the spread.

    I also take the Vikes and give the points and I expect them to win the Super Bowl!

    Jacksonville 45 Pittsburgh 42

    You can go back and read my numerous posts since September, the Steeler's defense sucks, and I made it clear the Steelers would never go deep in the playoffs with such a defense that sucks.

    It was a below average defense before their captain and best player (Ryan Shazier) was injured, and as seen today, a defense that completely sucks.

    When you give up 45 points at home in 14 degree weather, to a team that scored 10 points at home against Buffalo, you suck as a defense.

    Tomlin tried the onside kick because he knew there was no way his defense could hold the Jaguars to three and out.

    Oh well, at least I won't have to watch my Steelers lose another AFC Championship Game to Brady & Belichick.

    This could be the end of the Steelers for awhile. Roethlisberger is probably going to retire, and LeVeon Bell has said he will hold out next season if the franchise tag is placed on him.
