Re: Now... for whom to root?
Being in Oregon, people around here like the Seahawks and Niners, but I have been a lifelong Steelers fan.
Now that Pittsburgh is out, I will root for anyone beating the Patriots and Ravens, but will probably root for Denver and Houston (new blood) in the AFC and the Seahawks and Vikings in the NFC.
I am happy that the Giants did not make the playoffs and just hope the Patriots don't make it to the SB. If the Steelers can't go, then I would like to see some new teams in the SB.
