    Definately Pitt. They are rivals but I respect the organization and how they play the game.

    He"s A Colts Troll

    Won't participate in a poll by a sealth troll. Meaning he uses the name Tony Collins so we think he 's a Patriots fan but he's a Colts troll.

    He's setting us up. He is now officially on my "dead to me" list (ignore).

    I'm on the fence. I respect Dungy a lot, but don't care for Peyton Manning. Roethlisberger seems like a good guy, but Cowher's low on my list. However, please don't make me come to making this decision, Patriots!

    My Rooting Guide for the remaining playoff teams (after the Pats) :

    1.) Carolina Panthers
    2.) Pittsburgh Steelers
    3.) Chicago Bears
    4.) Seattle Seahawks
    5.) Washington Redskins (tie)
    5.) Indianapolis Colts (tie)
    7.) Denver Broncos

    My reasoning is mostly based around their fan bases. (Though the Steelers would be #1 if they weren't sort of a rival.)

    And I'm oh so close to putting the Colts at 5 & the Redskins at 6. (Just because I live in the area and couldn't deal with an offseason of superbowl glory.)

    Um, nobody. I would hope that whoever won the NFC to win the SB, but in all honestly, I probably wouldn't even watch.

    Tough choice! My first thought was Pittsburgh before seeing the poll, but then I realized that would be denver would still be in. So then I thought Denver, but remember how they cheated on the salcap in the 90s.

    So despite my loathing for the Colts, I chose them cuz the franchise has won only 1 Super Bowl. A Super Bowl for Denver would put them on par with us in number of Super Bowl wins, and one for Pittsburgh would put them farther ahead of us.

    Go Seattle.

    I'd probably root for Pitt... get Bettis a trophy. Carolina wouldn't be bad either. If Pitt and NE both lose, I'd root for Denver against Indy. Indy's the only team I'd have trouble rooting for.

    Not like it matters much, but he's a Colts troll, not Steelers troll.

    I would hate Denver to win. I still think of them as a bogey team. When I first started following (American) Football, it was 1986 and beyond, so they seemed to win every time the Pats played them.
    I'd hate Indy to win for obvious reasons. The Steelers trolls would really p*ss me off and the Bears would be vaguely tolerable. Lovie Smith really deserves credit for what he has done with that team.
    I've never liked Washington although the number of times that they ran the counter gap play (in Superbowl XXII to give Timmy Smith 204 rushing yards and I did cheat!) still makes me laugh my posterior off. How stupid can a defensive lineman be, exactly?
    I won't ROOT for anyone although I wouldn't begrudge Seattle as the home of Nirvana and Soundgarden, or Carolina who seem to play football the "proper" way.

    Thanks for setting the record straight. BTW I'm on here over a year. Is that still considered a troll?

    I've got to root for a NFC team. The Pats play both Denver and Indy again next year and I hate Pit.

    If I had to pick one team that is still in the playoffs to win the Superbowl , besides the Patriots, I would have to go with the Carolina Panthers. I have a lot of respect for that organization. They have a great coach and players that just take care of business. They remind me a lot of our current Patriots team. Plus, they were a part of the greatest superbowl of all time. I almost felt bad for them after they lost.

    Hate Pitt (arrogant team. pathetic fans)
    Hate Denver (dumb, dumb fans -Shannahan looks like the devil, former home of Shannon Sharpe - one the worlds biggest horses asses)
    Hate Indy (Winner of the whiniest team of the century award - the fans are even bigger whiners)
    Hate Seattle (Hasslebeck is a product of Boston College. BC is evil. Evil must end)
    Hate Carolina (Delhomme is a puke and Steve Smith is the third biggest punk in the NFL I call them the punk & puke pair)


    Who does that leave? LOL!!!

    Pittsburgh for me.

    No way in hell for Indy. They're last.
    And I work with someone who's a Broncos fan.

    I surely don't like the Steelers but they're all that's left.

    I originally voted Denver for the AFC, but changed my mine. If the Pats loses, I'd vote for whomever represents the NFC. My choice would be the Panthers, and then Seattle.
