    Pats. I hate to say it, but they are superhuman demi-gods. Even their flaws don't seem to matter.

    49'ers. I never thought they would totally outplay and outcoach the mighty Pack. Man, are they fast, on both sides of the ball. And the Falcons just squeeked by Seattle, as they have done so often.

    I like the Ravens up in New England.

    I of course will be taking my Atlanta Falcons. We've had success against mobile quarterbacks and were able to put up numbers against the best corners in the game last week. We just can't get conservative like we did against Seattle.

    Atlanta wins 31-28

    I sure hope New England wins Sunday, as I will be at the game, cheering and freezing! Flacco seems to thrive in the big games lately and then there is the inspiration from Ray Lewis.

    Question: Did anyone know that Ray Lewis is retiring after this year?

    I sure hope they show more clips of him getting amped up, NOT.

    Sooooooo Sick of hearing about Ray Lewis. I hope the Pats dominate and send him packing but it will be tough. I think the 9.5 line is stupid dumb. This game should be a pick em in my view.

    I am also rooting for Atlanta...

    I went to an unnamed island, off the coast of a Gaeltacht(Irish speaking only) area of Ireland, found a giant rock, dug a small cave under it, and looked up at the underside of the rock.

    There was an article carved into it about Ray Lewis retiring.

    Interesting pick on the Ravens. I don't know anyone that gave them a chance against Denver and look what happened. Should be a very interesting game as the Ravens seem able to bring big surprises.

    It's pretty much a given that I didn't like getting beat by your Falcons, but they are a very good team and I wish you success against the 'Niners.

    + 1 Brady has often struggled against the Ravens. However I still think they're going to win.

    No doubt about it, this is going to be a hell of a hard game for the Pats, Ravens defence strong as ever, and looking to get one back on them.

    Other side of the coin, it's going to be an incredibly hard game for the Ravens too, a Patriot team that can drop big numbers in short order on anyone, just look at their (albeit failed) comeback against the 49'ers.

    Should be a hell of a game, they both should be, it'll be interesting to see if the Falcons stumble again, if they do, you gotta imagine the 49'ers punishing them much harder than the Seahawks did.

    I know what you mean, with all the slurping by the media, the barrage of TV ads he's in, the fashion shoots, all the red carpet pictures with the supermodel wife, it's just all so much it makes you pray for relief--oh, wait.;)

    My Falcons have found ways to win this entire season. Win a game in the last minute, luck. Win multiple games in the last minute, skills. I hope and pray that Mike Smith won't be conservative once we get 20-0 lead like last week.

    As for AFC, as much as I hate it, the pats are going to win. Baltimore didn't beat Denver, Denver beat themselves. They don't stand a chance against that horrible them the patriots.

    Just my $0.02.

    I will take any combination in the Super Bowl as long as it isn't Ravens vs 49ers.
    All the HarBowl/ Oh Brother hyperbole would be fatal.

    I think it will be Pats 49ers, which would make a great game.

    I'm going, Atlanta over SF and The Patriots over Baltimore. I'll be fine no matter which teams wins though.

    Ravens in a close one

    The 9'ers are going to blow the Falcons out.

    You never thought the 49ers would be the Packers? Really? hahahahahahaa, the Packers were one of the most inconsistent playoff teams this year (in a league of inconsistency).

    As for the Pats, you just overrated them. I hope everyone else does too and they lose. They play the easiest division in the league yearly. They might as well roll out the red carpet for them. The AFC is a big joke anyways. Crazy how fast it could go down after about 2 years.
