Default Playoffs: Who would you want

The Chargers looked good and when Gates comes back they will be better.

If we win the #2 seed, which team would you prefer to play in the second round of the playoffs after the bye if you had your choice.

It's hard to choose one. This is assuming the Chiefs and Jacksonville choke and fail to make the playoffs. If either of those can make the playoffs AND win their wild card game, they would be the obvious choice.

I picked the Jets only because i would hope Sanchez would choke in the playoffs. I don't feel like facing Manning or Rivers in the playoffs. The Ravens would probably be my second choice since the game is at home.

colts, they're banged up and are on the decline, and we always have manning's number. easiest win for us. without dallas clark, manning has shown that he's human indeed. I honestly think they'll miss the playoffs.

ravens are the team i'd least like to face. physical game that could threaten the health of key players isn't a good thing going into the afccg

chargers ONLY make the playoffs if they go on a serious hot streak, and that's not the kind of team you wanna face.

I'd be fairly comfortable with the Colts or Chargers. A little less comfortable with the Jets or the Ravens, but I still think the Steelers could get it done. Least comfortable with the Pats...though I think if the team had the bye and got healthy, they'd make it a close game that could go either way.

I guess I'll go with the Chargers.

Boy, I think I'm just the opposite. If you look at our losses, our D has had trouble stopping elite QB's from passing on us. Teams that run the ball well like Balt and the Jets don't seem to give us too many issues as our D shuts the run down. I would fear Payton Manning would pick apart our secondary. At least with the Jets and Balt. it would be low scoring and come down to 1 big play, which I trust our D to make.

For some reason, I'd rather face Baltimore again. It seems like we got their number over the years and since both teams are such a mirror image, I'd expect the edge would go to the Steelers every time since Roethlisberger TRUMPS Flacco and Polamalu slightly edges out Ed Reed on the defensive side of the ball. The Steelers have made a history of 3-sweeping the Ravens before and I think they can do it again.

The ONE team that I'm afraid of RIGHT NOW to play spoiler is the Jacksonville Jaguars. I believe they have the physical tools to bring down anyone and we always had trouble with that team in past years, if not forever.

The Chargers by far. We have had their number recently and seem to be able to generate a running game against them every time we play them. I saw their last loss to the Raiders and they are a team that can be dominated physically.
