Default Now... for whom to root?

Since the Steelers are out of the play-offs, for whom will you root?

I am looking forward to a Luck versus P.Manning AFCCG, with the youngin' taking down his predecessor.

I'd love to see a Minnesota at Seattle NFCCG... with AP rushing for 205 yards & the win.

Indy over Minn (or Sea): 24-17.

[Note: I'd take pretty much anyone except the Taperiots or Ravens... and probably not the Packers, unless they go up against one of those two aforementioned hated teams.]

Go Colts!!!

I'm sorting it out by who to root against...

1) Patriots: Brady wearing Bradshaw's number and having as many SB rings would be the worst thing to happen in the modern NFL.

2) SF: Another team with 6 SB wins to their name? Pass.

3) Ravens: Duh.

4) Packers: Hate. Keep on showing that discount double check commercial in Pittsburgh, I'm sure it's getting you lots of new business.

Note that the Bengals aren't listed. No need to even bother there.

I'll go with the 'Skins or Seahawks. I like Pete Carrol and I like RG3. But, I agree with Darkstorm about the rest. Oh, and to add a reason not to cheer for the 49ers - I don't want a Harbaugh winning anything in this league. Because, well, fuck that. But, sadly, the Patriots are going to beat the Packers in the Super Bowl.

Pats 35 - Packers 24

I'm rooting for the Vikings. AP is my favorite non-Steeler player in the league and they're enough of an underdog for me to get behind them.

And as long as Indy bounces the Ratbirds, it's all good in my hood

I'm cheering for the Donkeys because no NFL qb has ever won a superbowl with 2 different teams. I would like to see that happen. I also think John Fox is a highly underrated coach who deserves success after years of unrewarding hard work with the terrible Panthers.

In the NFC I am cheering for Seattle or Washington. I want the rookies to do well.

I am cheering for the Ravens to expose the Colts. I want them to win by at least 3 tds. I am tired of hearing how great Luck is when he has been thoroughly outplayed by Wilson and RGIII who both had MUCH MUCH MUCH harder schedules. I also hate Arians and blame him for nurturing the complacency and arrogance that exists in Roethlisberger and Wallace.

Agree. Would prefer Texans rather than Broncos or Colts in AFC.
Any of ATL, WAS, SEA would be OK in NFC.

I'm rooting for the Broncos, Seahawks, Colts, and Vikings, in that order.

And the teams I'm rooting against are the Ravens, Redskins, 49ers, Bungals, and Patriots.

I have been rooting for the Broncos all year and will continue. I said before the season, if steelers can't win the super bowl I hope Manning takes it.

ravens obviously need to go out early but them and the bungles seem unlikely to get as far as the championship game so who really cares?

Can't root for any of the NFC teams so probably the Texans or the Colts are the least objectionable.
