in sports as in any sport . . you never know what spirit is with a team . .any team. . on any given night....
if u watched the cowboy beats the undefeated Saints (well . . as of week 14 they were) and maybe you are watching the Giants Skins game tonight. . and you can see it with your own eyes. . there is a force pushing the Giants into the endzone tonight. . one we havent seen in a long time. ..
Its not AP's fault it is the little tiff going on between Brett Favre and Brad Childress. They are fighting with each other to control the offense and in the end no one wins. Brett Favre thinks he knows better.. sigh that was his problem when he was in New York as well.
Assuming for the sake of argument that the Vikings could get that far, letting it turn into a QB "showdown" would be a good way for them to get blown out. They better get their money's worth out of Peterson.
I think the best QB showdown would come in a Colts/Saints match up. I have zero desire to see a Manning-Manning Super Bowl. The Giants aren't good enough to make it that far this year. They could easily miss the playoffs altogether.
I think the Super Bowl lies in the hands of the AFC right now. Don't know if any NFC team is good enough to take down the Colts or Chargers the way the two are playing right now.
The Vikings had a very easy schedule this year and beat only one team with a winning record outside their division, Cincinnati. Favre is a late season slumper and always has bad Decembers. He won one Super Bowl. I don't think he has another in him.
Personally, I would like to see the Saints and Colts lock horns in the big one.
I thinks Saints and Colts would be a great superbowl.
However, Vikings deff aint going to superbowl. I just can't see them out-scoring Saints.
I'm a worried bears fan though, as usually a team with momentum going into the playoffs goes on to win the superbowl. Packers deff have momentum going into playoffs and could be the surprise package. Although I dun think there OLine can handle Vikings blitzes.
I still going with my pre-season pick, Eagles vs. Patriots with Patriots winning.
The hottest teams right now seems to be: San Diego Green Bay Dallas
My ideal matchup for the Superbowl this year would be Cincinnati v Green Bay (Bengals are a team i've always liked for some odd reason although the Bills are far and away my favorite and Green Bay...i just want to see rodgers start to get some CREDIT)
The pecking order for teams I root against puts the Jets at the top for teams left today, so they are out. I'm tired of the Bret Farve retirement stuff so as tempting as it would be to have him win it all and go away, I don't think that would happen so the Vikings are out. That leaves me with Indy/N.O. in the Superbowl.
