The NFL Playoffs So Far

More

Some quick thoughts:


1.) I really think Tom Coughlin deserves much, much respect. Here in New York, it feels like his job status is a regular issue. I don't really know why.

2.) Watching Vernon Davis crying after catching that pass, was eerily reminiscent of watching Terrell Owens do the same thing all those years ago. I love watching football players cry after plays like that. I'll never do anything as hard as get smashed by 245-pound linebacker while trying to hold on to a football. 

But I know a little (just a little) about putting your heart and body into something and seeing it come out beautiful. I got that (for the first time) as a west African drummer when I was 16. All kids should experience it. 

3.) Tom Brady is most unchristian.
