For me, 1. Panthers - Jake Delhomme is one of my favorite non-Pats. Love the story about how he stayed watched the Pats celebrate SB38 so that in the long hot days of TC, he'd remember what it felt like. 2. Chargers (assuming they beat Denver) - Yes Ladanian is a whiny hypocrite. Yes Merriman is an annoying asshat (though he wouldn't be part of it anyways). But has an 8-8 team ever sniffed the Super Bowl? That would be an amazing story IMO. 3. Titans - Love their smashmouth style. And having the best record they would seemingly deserve it the most. Fisher is one of the best coaches over the past decade. I'd have no complaints about seeing them hoist the lombardi. 4. Cards/NFC North winner/NFC WC if it's not the Cowboys - No complaints any of these unlikely teams win. I guess if the Bucs win it kinda sucks that they'd have their 2nd ring and only 1 below us for the millenium, but it's still better than many of the alternatives. Falcons that I would love. 5. Ravens - If not for having to root against them for the Pats sake, I'd love watching this team play. Very well coached team that doesn't make mistakes and punches teams in the mouth. Solid in all phases. Reminds me alot of our 2001 team with a better defense. Only drawback here is same as for the Buccaneers. But I'd rather see them get it over Pittsburgh, Indy, NYG, Dallas who I believe are the only teams I haven't listed.
