Who do you root for?

Personally I hate the Colts, what they did against the Jets in week #16 wasn't very professional, and referees always favor them (every pass Manning doesn't complete must be an interference), so it may come down to haunt them (hopefully).

As for the NFC both teams play great offense, but the Vikings play good defense too (besides, they are purple!!!).

So I'm rooting for a Vikings - Jets SuperBowl, but I would be happy if at least the Colts don't get there.

What do you think?

:lol: Colts - Saints

I really start to appreciate watching Manning, he is just the best and most efficient QB I got to see in my lifetime. Also I kind of dislike the Jets and Mark Sanchez.

I also like the Saints and their whole story since the Catrina. But more then that, being a Lions fan I really dislkie the Vikings and especially Favre!

Wouldn't mind a Jets - Saints SB as much as a Colts - Vikings one.

I hate Manning the Endorsement Whore and I hate the J-E-T-S

I'll root for whichever NFC team makes it to the SB.

I heard that, after the Vikings victory over the Cowboys, Favre called a press conference to announce he wasn't going to do a post game interview. Shortly thereafter he called another press conference to say he decided to do the interview after all. Then he met with the interviewer and her crew behind closed doors and promised to give it everything he had and that he wouldn't be a distraction.

Viks vs Saints & Colts vs Jets.

Some interesting stories that could develop. The Viks and Fabre vs the Jets in the Super Bowl ? Fabre vs his old team.

The Saints post Hurricane Katrina. Reggie Bush could be the MVP of the Super Bowl at the same time the NCAA announces action against the USC Football Program.

Three of the four teams play home games indoors.

Fabre and the Viks vs Manning and the Colts. Two of the best QB's of all time.

The Colts could lose to a team (da Jets) in the AFC Championship Game that they could have knocked out of the playoffs a few weeks back during the regular season.

With the Super Bowl in Miami, if the Jets go there, there will be a ton of Jets fans there. You don't have to get a room - just stay with family.

Just a note. I caught Dave Sims on Fox Radio today and he went out on a line and predicted a high scoring affair in the Saints - Vikings.

7-7 with 6:30 left in the first quarter.

Well, the Vikes were their own worst enemy. Too many turnovers.

The weird thing is though, I still think they got boned on that last drive by the officials.

I'm sure he'll retire several times before the start of next season. :lol:

I just hate badly officiated games, specially when so much is at stake.

First the 3rd Saints TD clearly was not a TD, those kind of plays shouldn't be red flag reviewable, they should be ALWAYS reviewable, that's 6 points there, perhaps a moot point since almost surely the Saints would had scored anyway.

But on that overtime drive, first the 4th down conversion, was never conclusive that he crossed the 1st down marker. Then the catch that seems to touch the ground, crucial 10 yards there. Seemed like all the calls were going to go to the local team.

Yes the Vikings killed themselves with so many fumbles, but still I hate when the referees have so many bad calls.
