I predict that there will be a Super Bowl.

Wait, that's not what you wanted, is it?

Actually, I picked the Patriots because they seem to be the hottest team right now.

Though my heart goes to the Panthers.

And this is the first playoff season in quite awhile where I like and respect several of the teams.

I'd be happy if the Panthers, Titans, Colts, or Packers won.  Of course, the team I picked is not one of my favorites!

Well, since my beloved Bills won't have the opportunity to lose their fifth Super Bowl . . . I'll go with the Colts over the Packers 31-17.  This is the year Manning shows he can win the big game.

I agree with marc's assessment... The Rams over the Colts. But I think that the score will be more like 38-14.

I predict that Pepsi will have a commercial during the Super Bowl.  I further predict that I will miss at least one hour of the game.  I prognosticate that in the end there will be a winner and a loser, but since Michael Jackson isn't involved with halftime I think we all know who the real winners are here--right?

I'll go out on a limb here and make another prediction... I don't know if I should, but here goes... I predict that there will be at least one beer commericial during the Super Bowl! I know that many of you might be throwing up your hands after reading that and saying, "whoa!"... But let's wait and see.

I voted for New England to win, but I think Green Bay could make it to the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately, I agree. With the luck/good fortune that they've been having, it's a definite possibility.

No, I don't... Even though I live in Wisconsin. I was privied to the resurrection of cheese-heads and Packer parafanalia a few years ago when they started winning again. Before that, the Packer gear was sitting in discount racks at local stores, and the Packer organization was even considering changing their colors to spark new interest.

Fair-weather-fandom... A big pet peeve of mine. Living in the mecca of it, makes me dislike the Packers even more.

(By the way, interesting new avatar...).

Man, that was a quick post.  Unless, of course, you  posted it the first time the Rams lost the game. . .  .


Exhausting game.  I am a Rams fan since '75, and my heart has stopped seven times in the past hour.  The Rams seemed on their way to pulling out a great comeback in regulation, with Marshall Faulk leading with his heart, and then Martz funked out like Hooker at Chancellorsville.  I wouldn't be surprised to see George Meade coaching the team next year (well, okay, I would since Meade's been dead for more than a century).  Top-shelf players executing the attack perfectly, and he pulls up and settles for the tying field goal.

Carolina kept doing everything in their power to give the game away, but the Rams would not take advantage.  In the end, physical and mental exhaustion ruled, and One Big Play did them in.

Actually, marc, I posted it right after the winning touchdown. As far as Carolina trying to give the game away... Agreed.

And if I were an Eagles fan, I would be happy that they at least took a couple of shots at the end zone before kicking the tying field goal in regulation instead of simply running the clock down.

My new prediction:  Colts 30, Eagles 17 (although getting past the Patriots will be tough).

Seems the Panthers have deep spiritual problems with putting a game away before the last minute.

I'm pulling for the colts, but they've got big problems to overcome.  A dome team, playing in sub-zero weather, against the game's premier defensive mind. . . .

This one could be interesting.

I'm also finding myself surprisingly interested in the Eagles.  I liked Donovan (not to certain ESPN announcers:  his name is not Dunovan) McNabb at Syracuse, and have always thought he was capable of leading a team to a Super Bowl win.  This could be the year.

Go Vikings!!!!!!!



What do you mean they're out of it?


They're not out as long as there's hope!



Sorry, momentary brain freeze.  I need to move to warmer weather. ::taz::  ::taz::

Now that the field has narrowed to four, I would like to see New England win again. In fact, considering who is left, I think that they are the favorites.

It's up to 31 degrees in New England, although it's still snowing, so the weather advantage won't be quite as bad as I expected.

New England won.  Manning didn't have a good day.  It may prove true that defense wins championships, and Dungy will have a lot of work to do on his defense.

New England, at least, is an interesting defensive-minded team, as opposed to the deadly boring Baltimore Ravens of three years back.

Now if Philly can come back against Carolina, we'll at least have a watchable Super Bowl.

I don't know about Philadelphia.  I think they are over-rated.  I think Carolina could even surprise New England.

It looks like Superbowl 38 is set.

New England vs. Carolina

Yeah.  I have mixed feelings.  Carolina doesn't strike me as a particularly sharp team.  Defense does the job, but I can think of about twenty teams I'd rather watch play.  

New England, though, I like. And I think it would be enjoyable to see Tom Brady get a second ring to answer all of those who complained and called him a flash in the pan when New England traded Drew Bledsoe.

I expected both the Rams and the Eagles to pulverize my beloved Panthers.  I just didn't expect the Panthers to go from 1-15 to the Super Bowl so quick.  Maybe the Patriots will take them lightly, too.  If not, I'm afraid the Patriots' players will have Panther pelts hanging on their den walls.

Think about it.  Two teams are going to walk that aisle and step in to the rectangled-circle.  Being called the underdog again only helps the Panthers to be the team that walks out dukes in air.

The nature of the Panthers' win over Philly was shown in one play -- the DeShaun Foster touchdown.  One guy hits him head on, he keeps going.  Two more hit him, he keeps going.  Another hits him, he keeps going, and puts the ball over the goal line.

It was as if the Panthers were saying, "We WILL win today."  And the Eagles were replying, "Ok."

Expect more against the Patriots.

Is it just me, or did the week off deflate the playoff atmosphere and excitement? IMO, ditch the week off...

I'm a "follow football" person rather than a "fan", but in spite of the fact that I could care less for any of the final four teams, the Panthers pulled me in with two road upsets in two weeks.

But nothing, NOTHING at all football on Sunday really cooled off the simmering excitement.
