Looks like the Markelle Fultz comeback train has left the station and is picking up a little speed at the city limits.

Pour one out for rcade doubting himself on the weekend:

I only have 49ers by 10, so that's a relief.

Changing pick to San Francisco by 3 no lock.

As the 49ers ran a loose ball in for an apparent icing-on-the-cake touchdown against the Cardinals as time expired, announcer Chris Myers said:

"Now wait a minute. This could mean a lot to a certain amount of people."

Ever the consummate pro, thinking about the point spread and the win margin as the cameras showed the Niners and their home fans celebrating the victory.

This could mean a lot to a certain amount of people

It meant that stupid people who laid on 49ers -10 scored a push and didn't lose their money.

Why did that game end without a PAT attempt? I thought that was required by the rules on a touchdown scored as time expired.
