Let me first admit that as a Florida Gator alum, I cheer for all the former Gators to excel at the NFL level.  Over the years, Florida has produced many NFL stars, from Emmitt Smith back to Wilbur Marshall.  But none of them have brought the heightened controversy that Tim Tebow has taken to the NFL.  Tebow is far from the most talented quarterback to ever come out of Florida, but most of the others have failed miserably in the NFL.  But Tebow is different.  I cannot describe it and it does not make sense.  To say “he knows how to win” makes no sense.  Most of the guys in the NFL have won at some level in their career – they know how to win also.  No, Tebow has something else.  He has the ability to make all of the players around him better.  I have heard the stories this week that the Broncos have not defeated any quality teams during their current run.  This week is New England.  And if Tebow can beat the Patriots, all the talk will have to stop.

Thursday game – Jacksonville Jaguars at Atlanta Falcons

Saturday game – Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Bucs

Good luck to all this fantasy football season!

Hey Mark,

I notice you are pretty high on Mendenhall this week. Higher than just about anyone I have seen. I am a Mendenhall owner, and at this point I am on the fence as to starting him or not. Tell me why I should overlook the bad matchup and roll with Mendy?
