    knock on wood... who would you want to face?

    I think I'd like to see us up against the Falcons. I like how they're playing and respect the team. I'd also kind of like to face the eagles and beat vick so we can shut up those folks that are riding his jock right now and saying he's better than Brady.


    For those that are going to knock me for looking too far ahead, I'd just like to say that I'm a fan and not a player, so I'm allowed to look ahead. I'm also hoping my repeated use of the word "if" and my knocking on wood, doesn't give me bad karma.

    I'd like to tell you to shut up but I had them figured for no better than 8-8 or 9-7..at this point...hell yeah...why can't they go all the way?...beat Miami and GB at home, hell that's home field advantage...2 games from the bowl...I'd LOVE to match up with the Eagles and Dog Killer just so Brady can cram a giant crow down all the hater ESPN personalities throats.

    You know our vote, we want Brees and Brady on the same field, and good fans to share it with. An even fight and a good ball game.

    The Giants, Falcons, and Saints would all be great match-ups.

    I'd rather play the Rams/Seahawks though.

    Anyone but the Saints. I know this team is much improved from 2009, but Drew Brees scarred me for life with his performance against us last season.

    It'll be interesting to see what the Saints do the next three weeks. They'll be actually playing teams with a pulse.

    I love the votes for the Seahawks... I mean, it's tempting, right? But any team we're playing will be hot. If it's the Seahawks they'll have a "getting hot at the right time/Road Warriors" story going on just as the Gintz did in 07.

    Of course, the 2010 Pats beating the 2010 Gintz would be nice, particularly in a blow-out. Hey, jinxes or no, that's what I'd love to see in my heart of hearts. But it would not be enough LOL... we would have to draw the Gintz another four times or something before I forgot 07.

    Rams or Seahawks. I want to see the first 7-9 team to ever make it to the superbowl.

    Although Vikings would be nice. (Real long shot at this point, but I think it is still mathematically possible). Have Randy Moss in the booth breaking down the comparisons between both teams.

    Without a doubt-the Giants. Still have heartburn from that last superbowl.

    There is unfinished business there, and it gives another opportunity for adding to the gallery of "Manning face" photos.

    I want to play whoever is the best in the AFC. I don't want any crying and moaning about "oh our team was better but..." nonsense. I want to play the best they have because I know we will beat them no matter who they bring.

    The Giants, my only wish is that they were undefeated.

    There is no level of misery that could be inflicted on the Giants and their fans that would quench the thirst of my revenge!

    The New York Football Giants is the only team I'd like to see there to excise the demons of 2007 by about 35 points. It would be great to see the other Manning throw three or four picks and for Brady to march up and down on them at Cowboys Stadium.

    Like the majority, I voted for a Pats - Jints revenge rematch.
    However, I'm still rooting for the Vikings Monday night, even if it hurts the status of our 3rd-round pick,
    that's how much I despise ShEli & NJ.

    I also wouldn't mind a rematch vs. our other 2 SB victors, the Packers or Bears,
    though by all rights, we should've had our revenge against the latter 2 already.

    Saints or Giants. I know a lot of you want revenge against the Giants for 2007 but it won't be the same. Nobody will look back 100 years from now and be impressed with us beating a mediocre Giants team. We will never get back what we lost in 2007.

    Although a 56-3 thrashing of Eli would be enjoyable, I will admit.

    I'd rather beat the Saints. They are the best and the defending champs.

    I'd be fine with the Falcons, Saints, Giants, or Eagles.

    Falcons because I respect what they're doing and think it would be a great game (plus BC's Matt Ryan).

    Saints because they say they modeled themselves after the Patriots super bowl teams. Would be a great clash of old vs. new (or new vs. new old?).

    Giants because REVENGE!

    Eagles because beating Vick would be sweet.

    Probably either the Bears or the Giants for the sake of 'avenging' historical losses. The Bears dished the Pats their most humiliating and lopsided loss ever in the SB but that was a long time ago. The Giants broke Pats fans hearts in 2007. I dunno, I think the Pats have 'tamed' the Bears. But I'm not sure I enjoy the prospect of facing the Giants again. What if the Pats OL craps the bed?

    Well this is a different team to be sure though. I think the 2010 Pats team is better constructed in terms of its athleticism on defense and a very flexible, more balanced, and harder to stop offense than even the 2007 juggernaut. The 2007 team didn't run the ball nearly as effectively and if the run got stonewalled then it was easier for teams to load up to stop the pass. If the Pats faced the Giants again, I think they would beat them with this edition. I haven't really been tracking the 2010 Giants but I don't think their DL is nearly as dominant as the 2007 version without the presence of Strahan. It's still a strength of their team but not nearly on the same level. And I don't think miracle catches will happen for the Giants twice in a row. Plus this time the Pats would put it out of doubt for such theatrics.

    Now the Saints I think would be the most exciting matchup to watch. Both Brees and Brady can sling it. That would be a really high scoring affair. A very dramatic game to watch. Might be the best Superbowl to watch in a while. Both defenses specialize in turnovers even if they give up lots of yardage and their share of scores. So now that I think about it, I'd change my vote to Saints now if I had to do it again.
