Default 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.

From the Fairy Tale point of view, two teams fit that category; the Ravens and SF.

The Ravens have "The Ray Lewis Story" (team identity, last season, yadda, yadda, yadda...) as well as the "Flacco Story" (Joe is determined to prove he's really an 'elite' QB, etc...) and SF has the " Kaepernick Story" (kid comes off the bench, guides the team to the playoffs and so on).

Both stories are good and if I was picking a winner based on the Fairy Tale aspect, I'd pick Baltimore.

But being a realist and seeing just how good New England is, I'm picking the Pats.
Don't forget Tony Gonzalaz is retiring after this year, so hopefully he'll be part of the Fairy Tale mix. Hate this season...smh

1. Falcons
2. Patriots
3. Harbaugh West
4. Harbaugh East

Can't believe I'd root for the Patriots......anyone but a Harbaugh.
I think the league might be secretly pulling for a "Brothers Bowl."

Pats vs Ravens - who to root for?

Would I rather suck Rosie O'Donnell's toes or squeeze pus from Rosanne Barr's butt boils?

I have nothing against the 49ers, but they could threaten the Steelers current #1 SB victory count by tying them with a win. And I despise thinking of Brady holding onto yet another ring...when we're not even certain if (morally speaking) 1 or more of them should be there in the first place.

So yeah...the Ravens it is, champion of the AFC North. Go Ravens! (until next season, that is)

EDIT: Wow - I almost forgot the Atlanta won that game - I'll definitely root for that team, as well!
Agree with you. The birds can represent the AFC North. They have really turned it on the last few weeks. Can never root for Brady. Refs named two ***** rules after him. The tuck rule and the Brady rule (can't breathe on him after he throws the ball-see Terrell Suggs penalties). Not a fan of Flacco but he never cries for a flag. Just gets up moves on to the next play. Gotta respect that. With an improved line he is starting to move around more and looks like BB in his hay day more and more.

i have no reason to root against the dirty birds or tony gonz/matt ryan, plus its kinda cute when a franchise wins their first championship.

i would root for the bungles or browns over the ravens or patriots so NFC all the way!

^^The bolded portion.^^

Tony, you always have a way with words.

I am like-minded in this case: most of the time, I'd be rooting for the AFC... except for three teams: Taperiots, Ravens, & the Raidahs.
