Greetings All! My apologies because I'm going to have to make this quick and easy. A lot of us here in the Philippines are busy doing all sorts of stuff for the relief efforts due to the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan. So the Niners are going to New Orleans tomorrow and they're going to be under dogs for the first time in a while, with the Saints being 3-point favorites to win at home. I'm actually a bit surprised that the spread is quite small, but I'm hoping that it is enough to light a fire under these 49ers and totally take Drew Brees and Co. by surprise. On paper, this game does not look easy and the entire team is going to have to step up. Enjoy your day and enjoy the game tomorrow. Here are the links and then I'm back to work!
