1-7 Falcons beat 7-1 NO Saints and pretty convincingly, Jets beating Giants, Browns beating the Bills, Titans beating the Chiefs, the bookies will be coining it in this weekend!

It's like they don't even care about my predictions.

Myles Garrett will be getting some time off work

Britain’s Jay Ajayi has re-signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Tonight’s Sky games are very decent indeed:

Baltimore at Houston at 6pm in the battle of two of the hottest QBs

Philadelphia at New England in a rematch of Super Bowl LII

Aaaand ... Bama are out of the 'conversation' for the top four. Losing a tight defensive game against Auburn 48-45 with, because history repeats, a field goal that would have tied it going awry.

So the top four, for now, is LSU, Clemson, Georgia and Ohio State ... my bet, and I think most commentators, is that whoever loses in the LSU-Georgia game next week could be bumped and if Clemson lose to Wisconsin they will definitely go too ...

The corruption of it all is magnificent.

Just watching on TV the selection of the 100 greatest NFL players on a position by position basis with extra picks for the more skilled positions.

This particular episode was on the twelve all time best running backs (in no particular order below) as selected by a panel including Bill Bellichek:

 

Jim Brown

Emmitt Smith

Eric Dickerson

Barry Sanders

OJ Simpson

Gayle Sayers

Dutch Clark

Steve Van Buren

Lenny Moore

Walter Payton

Marion Motley

Earl Campbell

 

Must admit that Dutch Clark (1930s Lions), Steve Van Buren (1940s Eagles), Lenny Moore (1950s Colts) and Marion Motley (1940s/50s Browns) are not names I was readily familiar with from the list chosen.

The others up there are legends I feel lucky to have seen as their careers unfolded  (even if just via a grainy TV image usually on Channel 4), in particular Dickerson, Sanders and Smith.

LSU nicely understated before the title game

The players will enjoy themselves. Some might even do it legally.

How good a Superbowl do we have in store! Best team versus best QB. Would like Reid to win one.. 

Yep, hoping for a really good one and will be supporting the Chiefs as it’s a long time since they won one.

The bookies can’t seem to split them.

Its an intriguing battle between a great pass rush from the 49ers and a mobile, accurate and tough QB from the Chiefs.

This being the NFL though it wouldn’t surprise me if another couple of factors come to the fore that are getting less attention in the build up.

My prediction:

Kansas City Chiefs 20-14 San Francisco 49ers

Can they not just sing the bloody song properly for once? It’s a rubbish anthem but still better than GSTQ  

No idea who I want to win. Tempted to go SF but not sure why. 

The big choice is BBC or Sky.

Gone for Sky.

Probably want the Chiefs to win due to their long wait for a championship.

Cracking game so far. Settled on 49ers as my team I want to win.

Half-time show has to be the most dire for a very long time. Not even pretending to sing live. And what’s with the guy looking like a less talented Ali G coming on for a few words in rubbishy stuff that’d be laughed at in any rap event.

And now they’re into a Riverdance knock-off.

$deity wept, this is awful. They could have saved millions and improved the quality by filming my drunk uncle at New Years gone past sitting in the corner crooning away to unrecognisable old rubbish. A bit like this:

I find the problem with these quick medleys is that for every song I recognise, there’s then another three I really don’t.

Fair play though to the random guy who managed to get on stage with a microphone although he couldn’t really carry a tune to save his life! 
 

Shed Seven next year please!

The granny and the belly-dancer looked like the organisers realised the Treasurer ran away with the money and they had to scrape around for anyone who’d do it for a bit of publicity, a free meal and their taxi paid home after the event.
