    Who are you rooting for?

    I have decided to root for the Steelers.

    I was on the fence for a while...but the most recent lovefest of win one for the career felon, has tip the scale to root against the team that has safety that got away with murder and for the serial rapist.

    Voting for the Steelers. In don't want anything to do with the Ravens now that Ray Rice is starting to run well again. I hope and expect it to be a brutal, hard hitting game where the winner leaves battered and bruised.

    I'll wait until the Jets game is over before I worry about the next opponent.

    If the Pats beat the Jets, I want the Steelers.

    If the Pats lose, I want the Ravens.

    Would rather see the Ravens win a Super Bowl than the Steelers claim another Lombardi.

    Regardless of which team, I hope they beat the crap out of each other in the AFC Divisional Playoffs.

    As Tom Brady asked ever so eloquently, "Can both teams lose?"

    Tough to call.

    Both teams are a bunch of scumbags. Big Ben's a lowlife. Ray Lewis is an accessory to murder. Hard to pick one team to root for.

    In terms of who I would rather play - I'm taking it one week at a time. Ultimately, I think folks are underestimating the Steelers. If we beat the NYJ, we will have a tough game the next week either way.

    And I agree w/ the logic that I don't want Pittsburgh to get a 7th ring, and Ben to get a 3rd. In that sense, I want to see them lose.

    All I'm rooting for is overtime and the most physical game it can be. Everything short of rooting for injuries.

    I'm really looking forward to this game as always from a fan perspective.

    Problem with this approach is the Raven-Steelers game is on Sat, Patriots-Jets on Sunday.

    If I am not rooting for one team or the other, the game isn't that much fun to watch.

    Ravens, I don't want Rapistberger to come within a shot of a 3rd superbowl.

    If your not scared of the Ravens then you have to be nuts. The more I watch them play I get a bad feeling about the Patriots facing them IF they get past the Jets. I can see the Ravens winning the whole thing.

    Think the Steelers would be the easier opponent than the Ravens for the Pats but I would love the Pats to take out the Ravens so I don't really care in the end.

    In the very unlikely event that the Pats lose, I'm going to become an NFC fan.

    Why? Because they beat the freaking Chiefs? Or because of Suggs scary warpaint or Ray's on-camera theatrics?

    Yeah, they're good, but Ravens fans I know (all three of them) are very worried about both the Steelers and Pats. Steelers will be a very tough game for Balt. Our D vs. their O is a way better match and the new O is nothing like last year's.

    I don't get the "fear" of any other team. I only get the fear of other teams when they come to Foxboro. Is there any way we can play both?

    They just beat the F*ckin Chiefs. That game was so predictable IMO. They won't have that kind of success next week. Even if they do win, I don't see them winning nada. That game on Saturday is going to be a bloodbath.

    I can see why you'd not want to root for the Ravens, but wouldn't you rather beat them than beat the Steelers?

    I'm going to try very hard not to watch the game as I hate both teams. I made the mistake of watching Jets/Colts and felt dirty about my emotions conflicting the whole time:

    "Yes... Jets are losing... sh*t, Colts are winning... YES, Colts are losing, sh*t Jets are winning..."

    Steelers (particularly Roethlisberger) own the Ravens
    Patriots (particularly Brady) own the Steelers

    BAL < PIT
    NYJ < NE

    NE > PIT

    I don't care who wins, as long as it goes into quadruple overtime.

    Pats would beat either team. I'll wait till they dispose of the Jets before I give this some more thought. The Steelers have a good organization and I think Big Ben is a better QB than Flacco even though he's a terrible excuse of a human being.

    On the one hand, I know we'd have an easier time with the Steelers. On the other hand, I seriously doubt I can root for the rapist. I have no idea. I'm going to have to wait until I'm actively watching the game to know which horrid option I'll pick. I'll probably be washing my hands for 20 minutes after the game wishing I could get the dirt off.

    If the Pats beat the Jests on Sunday, I'd be happy beating either one. But if forced to choose, I'd say the Ravens for the opportunity to exact revenge.

    The age old question. Team led by rapist versus team led by murderer.

    I really wish we could beat both these teams again. Either one will be fine with me, I will never get sick of watching the Pats beat them both!

    The Ravens are #2 on my least liked list this year (passing the Colts with all their injuries), but I would actually like to see the Pats punch their ticket rather than the Steelers should the Pats get by the Jets. I would like to get a little payback for last year's playoff loss.

    I'm not rooting for either team, but I would prefer it if the Steelers won. They've been a much easier match-up for us lately than the Ravens have been.
