RG3 and Alfred Morris have been a total surprise on the ground this year. I know Morris won't be considered for the ROY award, but I think he should at least be an honorable mention or talked about. Perfect example of a guy coming from out of nowhere and playing hard. I love it.

I'll be rooting for the Falcons over the Texans in the Super Bowl. Definitely don't want to see the Patriots, 49ers or Packers crowned again. Less so Manning, the Ravens or Bengals. So Seattle, Minnesota, Washington, and Indianapolis would be better than others.

My rooting interest order of teams I want to see eliminated:

1. Ravens Lose
2. Patriots Lose
3. 49ers Lose
4. Bengals Lose
5. Packers Lose
6. Broncos Lose

Teams that I don't mind seeing advance:

1. Texans
2. Colts
3. Redskins
4. Vikings
5. Falcons

Team that I am rooting for to win the Super Bowl:

Seattle Seahawks


I wouldn't be completely stunned if this were the year of 4 road winners in the first round:

Bengals, Colts, Seahawks, Vikings

AFC Title Game: Broncos vs. Patriots (Hate it, but I think this is what will happen)

NFC Title Game: Seahawks vs. Packers (Hawks end up with NFC Title Home game and win it)

Can't divorce my desire from this pick so: Hawks defeat AFC Champion to win the Super Bowl

Yeah, real "classy" bunch. Not to mention the terminal case of PMS they've been suffering from for the last 7 years. Personally, I hope they get bounced in the first game.
I am a lifelong Steeler fan. I think the Steeler's deserved that Super Bowl. But if you don't admit that there were some garbage calls against the Hawks, you are a blind homer. That is a city that has never won an NFL title. To feel like you had your shot severely impacted by refs would hack anyone off. I cut them some slack.

Plus, I'm sorry but that article was written by a naive soccer mom who doesn't have a clue about the passion of sports and what happens when you wear enemy colors into another stadium. It's a whiney article. I am not justifying the behavior, I am just saying, wake up, and welcome to the real world.

Groundless hater. Why hate that guy? He isn't the media.

I wouldn't have nearly as much of a problem with it if they saved their vitriol for Leavy and his crew and laid off the Steelers as an organization, the Rooneys, and Jerome Bettis. I'm beyond sick and fucking tired of their pissing and moaning about some bullshit conspiracy where the Rooneys bought off the refs so the Bus could win the Super Bowl in his hometown.

Here's another slice of reality: NFL officiating sucks. For everybody. And has for as long as I can remember.

And finally, as far as them winning it all is concerned, you do have a point. Maybe if they did win it all they might finally shut the fuck up about it.

You nailed it. It was the bitching about the Steelers org, Rooneys, and Bettis that made me dislike them. Their players never really bothered me and none of the players from that 2005 team are there now from what I understand so it's definitely not their players.

Nobody, but if the Skins, Seahawks or Colts (Young QBs) win, I won't be mad.

Groundless liker. Why like the guy? Why not like the 3rd string QB on the Vikings or some other team.
