    For those of you who say bring on any team it does not matter, then just leave out of this topic as it makes it a worthless response
    But for those of you who would like to rate the 4 teams from top to bottom of who you would like to see us face down to the team you would think would be the most dangerous visitor lets hear your opinion

    Between - Pittsburgh,Jacksonville,San Diego,Tennessee

    Rate as follows based on what you think of the following circumstances....

    1 - The Most wanted team I want to see face NE in the divisional round - A team New England should win by handily
    2 - 2nd most desired team for the Pats to play - A team New England should win by a decent margin of 7-10 points although it may be close for a good portion of the game
    3 - The team I think will play hard against NE but still get beat by just a little (about 3 to 5 points) - 3rd desired team
    4- The team I really think could make it tough for New England,It could come down to a late possession in the game for NE to win a tight battle.

    My picks are as follows:

    1 - I want the team to face Tennessee - Easy win
    2- 2nd choice would be Pittsburgh - close game early NE pulls away by 3rd Quarter
    3 - Jacksonville would be 3rd choice as thier defense will keep them in the game
    4 - San Diego - I would rather New England avoid playing them early,Ladanian has played like the old LT of late and NE has had difficulty in stopping the run at times

    Tenn- Because they would be a easy victory

    Pitt- Been there and done that , and we will win again

    Jax- The least, but im a little tired of thier hype.

    The Patriots can not play the Chargers in the divisional round of the playoffs. The Colts will play the highest remaining of seeds 3-6, and since the Chargers are seed #3, if they remain they will be the highest seed.

    That being said, I would just LOL at a game vs. the Titans. Mr Vince "I throw 78 ypg and win" Young would have a terrible game.

    Then Steelers. The Patriots are more talented and Tomlin cannot outscheme BB.

    Jax. Hey, they are hot at the end of the season. Its not that I wouldn't want the Pats to play them, but I'd rather see TN or PITT.

    The Patriots will crush their opening round opponent, regardless who it will be.

    Like they've been crushing teams lately? I don't know about that. I would pick them to win, but crush? I wouldn't be so bold as to say that.

    Re: Rate the 4 AFC teams playing this week from wanting to play them the most to leas

    1. Tennessee - They just don't scare me.
    2. Pittsburgh - They're beat me, and I just feel comforatble playing them.
    3. San Diego - They're improved, but still suspect in my mind. Haven't seen them dominate a good team all year.
    4. Jacksonville - Unknown quality... they could be our toughest foe, or we could blow them out of the park.

    I have a hunch about Tennessee beating San Diego, which I know is contrary to my ratings above, AND Jacksonville beating Pittsburgh. But really, the only team that makes me nervous is Indy.

    Re: Rate the 4 AFC teams playing this week from wanting to play them the most to leas

    People are acting like a Jags-Pats game in Foxboro with the Patriots rested because of the bye is a toss up game. The Jags didn't even win their division and are 11-5.

    In order from most desirable to least.
    -Steelers - We know we can beat them, they don't match up well and they're certainly not hot.
    -Titans - We'd beat them, but they might decide to go for knees and such. They probably will lose to SD and I wouldn't be surprised to see a couple cheap shots.
    -Jags - They're as good as Pittsburgh and a very physical (if not as dirty) as the Titans.

    Since I'd be very confident against any of these teams, I'm more looking at possible consequences of the game such as injuries and fatigue.

    Not scared of any of them, but probably the Steelers would be the toughest. Imagine we get to play the Titans? haha, that'd be the easiest playoff game in Patriots history.

    Some talking heads are spouting that Jax is one team that could beat the Pats, I dont think so but would rather see a beat up Tenn or Pitt in the first round.

    As someone mentioned, Pats can't play Chargers.

    1. Titans - not a very good team
    2. Steelers - hope Anthony Smith plays
    3. Jags - would be a good game, but Pats will win by 10
