Re: Now... for whom to root?
The best case scenario now is Falcons Vs Ravens in the SB, with a Falcon win. San Francisco would be at 6 SB wins, so I don't want them even sniffing the opportunity. The Patriots...well, do you really want to risk Brady going nuts out there and putting up 50+ points? That would give him 4 rings, and the "Bradshaw's 4 makes him better for sure" argument is lost to us.
On the other hand, if we need to hope for an AFC meltdown to keep our records secure, my hopes will be riding on Flacco. Plus it would be sweet for them to go all the way to the big dance, and have all this hype over their fantasy story, then send Murderin' Ray out with a huge loss. Karma at it's finest.
