I really want this:
Seattle (I don't see anyone stopping them)
N.E. (I just think they are the better team, and certainly more experienced at this level)
49ers (This can go either way, but seeing that I have to pick one, I flipped a mental coin)
San Diego (I picked them over the Bengals, and I'm picking them again)
Mrs. BassCliff is a Chargers fan so every year we have hopes of a Saints/Chargers Superbowl and then pray that it doesn't lead to divorce.
Thank you for your indulgence,
I'm still not over them being in the playoffs at all...
You want the Seahawks to lose to the Saints?
Are you really from this area?
Seahawks--kudos to the Saints for winning on the road and in the cold, but I can't see them winning in Seattle.
Colts--this is based far more on hope than rational analysis.
Panthers--this just seems like their year to surprise people after last season's drastic underperformance.
Broncos--the Chargers, much like their previous opponent Cincy, have shown they're capable of falling apart at any moment in recent years. I know they won in Denver a few weeks ago, but I simply can't see them doing it again.
Seems like good choices. I'll go with that too.
Sorry about your Packers. I actually like the Packers quite a bit and wanted them to win yesterday. I also felt that their relatively weak defense wouldn't get the job done which is what happened.
It occurred to me the other day that Seattle and Green Bay are the only two teams where the fan base has an identity. You have the Cheeseheads and we have the 12th Man.
For me, the SF/CAR looks to be the most entertaining on paper. Why is the NFL making the Patriots move to an 8:15PM EST kickoff time?
I guess that depends on how you define "from". I presently live here and have for a few years now, but I'm a transplant from PA. However, a lot of the fans I run into for "the hawks" have utterly ruined them for me (your post is a good example of such attituade, actually, thank you! Heaven forbid someone in this area not like the revered Seahawks!!). Thankfully, I'm not even really super into the NFL anymore and haven't been for a couple of years, so it doesn't really bother me who wins or loses... I really only watch the couple of weeks up to playoffs, playoffs and super bowl. Then I don't think about American Football until near the next playoffs.
But I sure would love to have some of these people shut up, though I guess dealing with their constant whining would be just as bad (see people STILL complaining about their loss to the Steelers).
Fixed it for ya!
But as always, just want good entertaining games first and foremost. The wild card weekend delivered that pretty nicely.
We really love our team and want to show our support in any way, shape, or form. You'd like for sports fans to shut up about their team? Really?
Seahawks, Best team in the NFL, I don't see the Saints beating them in their house.
Patriots, I hate them, and will be pulling for the Colts, but I don't see the Colts winning that game
Panthers, This should be a good game, it could go either way.
Broncos, The most lopsided match up of the post season
Haha, didn't realize it was broken .
Some of them, heck yeah. Arrogance, hubris, condescending, people - absolutely. Normal, rational fans, nah - they rule IMO.
OK, thanks for the clarification. I guess you have run into some fans that are arseholes about football. That's too bad because a lot of us are much more reasonable.
I'd hope that most 'hawk fans are more sensible than that.
Haha, that post is great.
Thanks Hopkins. I think we'll pretty well on Saturday.
I hope that your Texans can get things together for more success next season.
