    I want the Ravens. I really want to return the favor and avenge last season's playoff loss with a blowout victory. I think we're considerably better than when we beat them earlier in the year.

    Having said that, I can't root for that team. I'll be rooting for KC but equally happy if it turns out to be the Ravens.

    I'd like the Jets and their fans to have to spend the offseason knowing we beat them 45-3 the last time we met. No reason to want to give them another shot.

    I want the Chiefs because they're garbage.

    No really, they have some good players, but overall, they can't match up with the Pats.

    But in the end, I see their streak of not winning a playoff game since the mid 90's continue.

    BAL is the toughest matchup but it won't matter. The only teams capable of stopping this team are in the NFC.

    From the standpoint of who is the best match-up for us? The Jets, easy. Their defense is crumbling as of late (especially against the pass, our strength), and I don't see any way Sanchez and that offense could keep up. Not to mention it being at home. That would be a blowout, I'd bet on it.

    But I too would love another game against the Ravens. Especially Suggs and his non-stop motor of a mouth.

    I want the Jets just because it will be sweet to end the Jets' Super Bowl season.

    Right now, I am not afraid of anyone. I would say that the Ravens would be toughest to beat though.

    I want the Jets, and it's not even close. We can beat the Ravens in the AFCCG if they get past the Steelers.

    Jets and Steelers. That's the path of least resistance.

    I want the Chiefs because they're awful.
    Won't mind the Jets either.
    The Ravens, we can take them, but they're good and experienced. Very dangerous team.

    As much as I would love to end the Jets season, that would mean that the Jets win a playoff game and this I definitely do NOT want.

    Jets need to die in their first game. God help me, that means I'll be rooting for the Colts. Ugh. :ugh:

    [EDIT] Having said that then, this is what I want: The Colts beat the Jets and the Ravens beat the Chiefs. This sets up the Ravens coming here so we can take our revenge on last year.

    The Colts then go to Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers, setting up another classic AFCCG between the Pats and Colts.

    Bring it!!!

    Ditto. Pats vs. Steelers or Ravens is worthy of a title game. But (broken record alert) I think the Chiefs blowing it against the Raiders means the Pats and Jets have faced each other for the last time this season.

    I am sick to death of the Jets. Enough already. Mr. Manning, please make them go away.

    Ravens seem like a concussion waiting to happen. So that leaves KC.

    Nobody scares me. At this point the only team that can beat the Pats is the Pats and I don't see that happening.

    Jets, then Squeelers......... KC is fine two........ Those 3 teams are likely blowout wins. Ravens and Indy will always be tough outs.

    how about the team we beat 45-3? Sounds like the safest bet to me.

    I agree completely with MVP. At this point, the only team who can beat the Pats is the Pats. If the Pats play their game, they can compete with and beat anyone. Why are we so worried about playing certain teams? They should be worried about playing us. If you go into the playoffs wanting to play certain teams over others, it means we are scared and playing scared in the playoffs will not get it done. As a fan, I want to play whoever we play and watch the Pats prepare for them and execute at a high level to beat them. If we think for a moment some teams are easier wins than others (i.e. Browns) then we are in trouble. Plus, if we want to win the Superbowl we need to beat the other best teams out there. Lets go Pats!

    For me wanting them has nothing to do with them being the worst or not. I just don't know how people here wouldn't want the Pats to be the team to send them packing, and then go into a very worthy title game matchup against the Colts, Steelers, or Ravens. Would be a good bookend to the regular season.

    But as said I think they have played their last game this season. Between scheduling and seeding it seems like other than the possibility of having to travel here for the title game (which is presumptuous to begin with), the Steelers are getting the benefit of being the #1 seed without actually having earned it. They'll get more rest going into a prospective title game, and they are probably going to have a less difficult opponent in the divisional round. Fortunately we know even with the league doing them those favors, the Pats can and will stomp them again if it comes to it.

    yeah, Id rather not play the team that last beat us in the playoffs or the team that has 2 former members of our coaching staff. Give me the team we beat 45-3 and hasn't looked impressive for the majority of the season.

    I can't do this kind of speculation... makes me too impatient. For me, it's best just to wait it out and see who advances next week. I feel like the Pats can take anybody right now*... we just have to wait two weeks to see it.

    *Edit: Look at the 12 playoff teams (doesn't matter who wins NFC West) - we have beaten 6 of the other 11 teams - 4 in the AFC, 2 in the NFC. I'm feeling pretty confident.

    Ravens - Revenge factor
    Chiefs - Easiest win imo
    Jets - Why not be the team to end the Jets season :D

    They all look good to me.....if I had to pick one I think I would go with KC though.

    Chiefs first, then the Colts in the AFC Championship... and the Eagles in the Super Bowl.

    There are advantages and disadvantages to each team. here they are.

    Jets:

    Advantages:

    -Patriots know this opponent better than perhaps anyone else at this point, they match up well against them and the patriots seem to own them in Foxborough

    -The Patriots will have similar circumstances headed into this game as the last 45-3 blowout, bye week leading to the hated jets in Gillette.

    Disadvantages:

    -The Patriots played them very recently, they will be prepared for how they exploited them this time and it will be a much closer game (at least the jets hope so).

    -The Jets know the Patriots just as well, and the Jets hate the patriots more than anyone else, for as much tape as the patriots have of the jets talking trash and celebrating, the jets have a boatload from the 45-3 game alone.



    Ravens:

    Advantages:

    -This is a redemption game, if the patriots win here they can say they have truly exorcise all of their past demons.

    -The Ravens Provide all of the motivation the patriots need here, suggs has been talking smack since the patriots beat him. and the patriots have all of the tape from last years playoff debacle of the ravens all talking smack and saying the dynasty was over.

    -The Patriots already beat the ravens in Foxborough.

    Disadvantages:

    -The Ravens have already played the patriots 3 times since last year in Foxborough and all times they have either kept it a close game or have blown out the patriots (last years playoffs)

    - The Ravens want revenge, they still feel like they were screwed by the favoritism the ref show brady too many times and Suggs especially personally hates brady.

    Chiefs:

    Advantages:

    - The Chiefs can look really sloppy in some games, today for instance they went out there to win a game against the raiders and got destroyed in the second half.

    -The Patriots know Cassel better than any other quarterback in the league, he still utilizes their system for offense.

    - Player by player, the patriots outclass the Chiefs, who have no superstars to speak of.

    Disadvantages:

    - This is a Mirror game almost the chiefs have so many coaches and players who used to be patriots and the teams know each others methods so well that it will have to be a closer game, the Chiefs are the closest team to the Browns in the playoffs in this regard.

    -The Chiefs are pretty spread out in terms of talent, there is no one player you can zero in on and type to stop, outside of Dwayne Bowe which hampers the patriots methods on defense.

    ----------------------------------------------

    I would honestly like to see the Jets back in Foxborough, the personal motivation is there, the opponent is common and the patriots are built to beat the jets defense, if the patriots somehow lost to the jets, i dont think i could bear to watch the jets celebrate ousting the patriots in Gillette without smashing my TV set.
