Florida Gators will demolish the Sooners

As the impending BCS title game approaches, many of you are hoping for a close game, a game worthy of a national championship.  It would be nice, but I hate to be the one to inform you that this game will be an afterthought by the third quarter.  At first blush you may make a rational argument for this game being competitive but upon further inspection it will become painfully evident that Oklahoma Sooners are no match for the Florida Gators.  The speed, athleticism, mettle, coaching staff, and every other factor point to the Gators dominating this game.  I would be shocked to see a competitive game. </p>

<p>Bradford has not seen the likes of UF's imposing defense and he will have constant pressure throughout the night.  Conversely, is Oklahoma's defense athletic enough to stop the bevy of Florida players with sub 4.5 speed?  I think not.  Percy Harvin is expected to play tonight but even without him the Gators should dominate.  Urban Meyer is a crafty coach but a masterful recruiter and he has stocked his team with speed players at every position.  By no means is Oklahoma slow but Florida is exceptionally fast.  It seems as if they are on turbo mode in a nintendo game, all the freaking time.  </p>

<p>Maybe Tim Tebow is not the drop back passer Bradford is however, he has enough talent as a passer and his general athleticism far surpasses Bradford.  This is not the NFL where quarterbacks are expected to pass first and slide whe they run.  No, this is the NCAA where a quarterback like Tim Tebow has thrived such as Charlie Ward, Tommie Frazier, and Michael Vick (to name a few).  Tebow's game is adaptable and he will morph his game to what the defense gives.  Moreover, the talent level of Tebow's support staff far exceeds Bradfords.  If you were wondering whether this will be a game and which side will be victorious, wonder no more.  The Gators win hands down, book it.

Norv Turner will self destruct

<p>To all of you San Diego Charger sympathizers let me clue you in on something.  As hot as you guys are, you will not be of any relevance in these NFL playoffs.  Even though you have LT and Sproles, a decent defense, and an adequate QB, you fail to realize your one fatal flaw, Coach Norv Turner.  The fact that this guy is even a head coach in the NFL is an atrocity and speaks volumes on the intelligence of your GM.  As a Redskins fan I have lived through the torment that is Norv Turner, with his I could care less attitude and it's not our fault schtick.  He disgusts me in every imaginable way and believe me when I tell you he will be your downfall.</p>

<p>That being said, I fully expect the Steelers to put a first class thrashing on the Norv Turner led Chargers.  Don't tell me I didn't tell you so.  If by some incredible act of GOD you actually win in Pittsburgh, you will most certainly be disappointed in the near future.  It never ceases to amaze me to see how such ineptness gets rewarded in the NFL.  This man single handedly turned the Chargers, once a formidable team, into an aftethought.  I will be placing a handsome wager against the Chargers this weekend and it would behoove you to do the same.
