It's tight, but I think I'll go with the Pats. I mean, the Colts were a tempting choice and all, but....


Honestly, if the Pats can't close the deal, then I'm basically on the "anyone but Colts or Seahawks" bandwagon.

I don't dislike the Seahawks, but the Pats have their first round pick, and I don't want to see it drop to 31 or 32. :D

I expect Baltimore to win it all but I will be pulling for the unexpected team in the Saints.

I spent most of my adult life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, plus lost everything I owned in Hurricane Katrina. My insurance and the Navy took care of me, but I'd like to see good things happen for the folks that are still there. So Geaux Saints!

why prop up an NFC team? N.O. NFW another town that shouldn't have been rebuilt.

I know, I know, but there's something about coaches (DV) that have won the Superbowl somewhere else coming to KC and failing and coaches that failed here and go and win it somewhere else that just doesn't sit well with me.

Either for Manning to finally go to the show, Marty to finally go to the show, and have some playoff wins. So the next time we meet either of them in the playoffs the media will have to find another reason to root against us.

That or the Saints, feel good story.

You mean like that NCAA Championship game a short 3 seasons ago? Or perhaps the Elite Eight appearance that was an OT away from being a 3rd consecutive trip to the Final Four? :D Last couple of years? Yeah, those sucked. Hopefully, those kind of efforts are in the past.

No kidding. That's my feelings. If Marty had gone to most any other team, I would be pulling for him. But he's with a division rival and I can't bring myself to root for him. Screw the Chargers!!! I'm waiting to see Marty's same old play not to lose approach rear its ugly head.

If NE drops out....I'll say N'awlins!
'Cause it's my division and because of how they came back from what happened after Katrina. Got a soft spot afterall.

No Seahawks—only because they have Branch.
I'm also petty and vengeful even if I think they got a raw deal with last Year's SB officiating.

I'm going for NE, just because we have to hear about their dynasty all the time any way. I have grown accustomed to it, and would hate to see Marty actually win crap after all the shit we had to watch when he was here.

As erroneously posted in a similar thread:

My choice: .....(Drumroll)....... San Diego Chargers.

Before you start stoning me for picking a division rival, here are my reasons:

1- I am not a big Marty fan, but not a Marty hater either. I would have been a fan had he not displayed blind unadjusting stubbornness regarding Martyball, RBBC, the 3 stooges, letting young players' potential shrivel on the bench. But overall I think this might be his last chance for the ring and I think he deserves it.

2- The Chargers, though division rivals, are not hated like the Donks and the Faiders.

3- With San Diego winning there'll be one less hungry team in our division.

4- Last but most important: If Marty wins the SuperBowl it would serve as a vivid indictment against Martyball to guys like Herm who are still holding on to it. Marty would win with an open 'O' after years of having miserably failed in the post season with Martyball.

It's called sportsmanship. We're not in competition with them anymore this season/playoffs. Marty did a lot of good here and is a good coach, not unthinkable to root for him.

Same for Manning / Indy, they just handed our O it's ass, but now I can say I've liked manning, seems like a good guy, I can root for him too.

Besides I like the Idea of Marty getting some postseason wins and Maybe Manning getting his SB, so (I said this earlier) when we play them again, next year or whenever, then the under current story line won't be, about manning compared to marino, or Marty's playoff curse. These storylines are old and wornout.

This last weekend, I was rooting for the elimination of the two New York teams. Since that goal's accomplished, I'm rooting for the elimination of the other Manning from the playoffs. I honestly don't care about which team makes that happen just as long as one of them does.

Depends on the Div rival with me. I'd NEVER root for the Panthers. Even though I like Delhomme and respect their team. I hate thier fans.

My "other" team is the Ravens. I lived half my life in Baltimore and have been to a couple of games there when I've gone back to visit. Love their D, of course, and their offense seems to do just enough. I think their chances of winning it all are as good as any team left.

Maybe ... just maybe, if Marty wins it all, his loving and adoring disciple Herm will realize that a high scoring offense isn't such a bad thing after all?

Nah.

New Orleans for me, the Bears fans around here will get out of control if the Bears get it done.

The Saints. I like Reggie Bush, Colston, and Brees, but the guy I'm really impressed with is Deuce McAllister. He is the epitome of a team player and all these prima donnas in the league could learn from him. Rather than bitching when the Saints drafted another RB, he knew it was the best possible move, and even though his numbers might dip, it was the right move for the team. He came back from a bad injury to put up another 1,000 yard season while sharing carries with Bush. I wish there was more publicity on Deuce, but the media only likes players who bitch and moan like TO. Also, he was instrumental in my fantasy football championship, so I have many reasons to root for him.

01-08-2007, 01:07 PM
I want to see Saints vs. Chargers and may the best team win. I dont' hate the Chargers, especially in post season when we are out of the hunt, and my second team has always been New Orleans. Plus the Brees vs Rivers angle will be interesting. I DON'T want to see Seattle or the Iggles in at all, cuz I hate them.

I am soooooooooooo sick of the Charger hipe here in Sandy Eggo. Sour Grapes I guess. I hope they are one and done in the playoffs. The Bandwagoning fans need to know how painfull it is to have the best record and then falling flat on thier face in their first playoff game.

Im rooting for the Patriots. I know, they have been there before.

Still i like them because they play like they want to win the game.
Its not some standard speech given to them like one coach i know, only for the players to shrug it off later and say 'whatever'.
Apparently the players buy into what the coachs are selling them so they must be doing something right.

Belichick has good gameplans geared toward the team they are playing.

I wish the chiefs could be like them.

you must not have watched them sleepwalk at home against the Donks to the tune of 7-17. And how about getting shut out by the Phins 0-21 a few weeks ago?

Unlike some in the media, we Patriots fans know that our coach is fallible, as it the team. Belichick can be outcoached on occasion, and the team can be outplayed on occasion. It happens.

Doesn't happen very often, especially in the playoffs, but it happens.

I watched the denver game. I wasn't a matter of you being outcoached. Your team walked around like zombies. Much like our game against the Steelers. They weren't necessarily outcoached. They were unmotivated.

Agreed. Kind of like the opener against Buffalo in 2003 (Buffalo won 31-0).

Belichick tries to bring the team along slowly, so that they're peaking at the end of the year. Sometimes that results in games where the level of effort doesn't match that of the opponents; that will almost always get you beat in the NFL.
