    on a side note, does anyone know what Spikes means when he always types PoWwWwWwW?

  6. Alex says:

    Dee Finley had all of his moving violation fine money riding on the Jets at -6.5.

  7. npgator says:

    Adam – FANTASTIC job! You are definitely on top of your game!

  8. Will W says:

    Agree with Preston. This is a great piece of content.

  9. Ron O'Connor says:

    Like Wuerffel, Tim is cool under fire because football doesn’t isn’t his highest priority in life. If he would get arrested a few times and get some tatoos the national media might like him better!
    A mediocre Bronco team that is 4-14 without him starting is 6-4 with him as starting QB!
    God Bless you, Tim Tebow!
