    The two best teams are going at it in Super Bowl XLI in San Diego. The winner of this game wins it all. The teams that are left are just not Super Bowl champion worthy. The Colts and Ravens were just horrible. The NFC has no chance against the Pats or Bolts.

    Jeez. Why even show up next week?

    KC was supposed to be the worst matchup possible.

    Then Baltimore was supposed to knock the Colts around.

    ...........

    Go Patriots. Hopefully we see you next week. Or does that game not matter?

    Well, you still have to show up and take care of business but there's no doubt the two best teams in the league are going at it in San Diego tomorrow. The superbowl will be anti-climatic.

    KC has been a mediocre team all year.

    Baltimore's defense did knock the Colts around but their offense is so incompetent it didn't matter. No one has ever accused the Ravens of having a good offense.

    I dont know, to be honest IF, IF IF we win tommorow, I dont know who I would have wanted to go to. Baltimore seemed good before today and I think if Peyton continues to lay eggs I'd like to face the Colts. But after seeing how crappy the Ravens played, especially the offense, I'd have wanted to play them. But then again, Brady is good in domes ;)

    The Colts defense is starting to play really good and forcing turnovers. The Colts RB's have exceeded expectations in my book this year. But if we somehow make it to the RCA Dome next week, it'd be so ironic for Peyton to throw 4 INT's this time around :D

    The Colts beat the Patriots already.. in Foxboro. That doesn't count either?

    Did you listen to your own God Peyton after the game? He said, "The Patriots are a different team in the playoffs." If you need proof of this try looking under your nose. No, regular season does NOT count in the playoffs. The only thing that matters is if you win.

    Yeah, it's a wonder what facing two completely inept offenses back to back can do for a team.

    That doesn't change the fact that Manning is not a big game performer.

    The point is the Colts are not as good or as balanced of a team as the Pats and Chargers. You still need to play hard to beat them, but the Pats or Chargers will go on to win the Superbowl.

    Ya holding Larry Johnson to under 40 yards was no big deal at all. Wasn't it LJ in that same offense this year that was a monster? Na, must have been someone else on the Chiefs.

    Meanwhile, Trent Green was leaking oil all over the field. When the passing game is no threat whatsoever it's actually fairly easy to stop the run regardless if it's Larry Johnson, Walter Payton or Jesus Christ toting the rock. What, we're supposed to be in awe of Indy beating the Chiefs in their little cocoon?

    So did the Jets the following week. So no, it doesn't really count at this moment.

    The Chiefs backed their way into the playoffs. They were not a good team. It's not an accomplishment to beat the Chiefs.

    The Colts have kicked Pats butt two straight times, and the game will be in Indy. If (if if if) they beat the Chargers, it is no automatic Superbowl win. The Colts really scare me, and they are playing with plenty of momentum, and they have no reason to be scared of the Patriots.

    Plus, I don't think I'll live to see it. All the incessant Vinatieri talk will cause me to keel over and die. It'll be 100X worse than the Mangini-Belichick "will they or won't they touch hands" discussion.

    And that didn't happen much of the season to get them to the playoffs? Sure you can bring up Huard who did ok, but LJ is still LJ. He is a passing thread as well as a running threat.

    Please fin a way to understand that any playoff win is a good win. Some gave the Chiefs a good shot at winning that game. This is the NFL. Anything can happen. That is why they play the game.

    Beating the Colts would be harder because of the little cocoon they play in. It is a legit home field advantage.

    But lest we not forget 5 NE turnovers in the narrow Colts win in the last match up. Something tells me the Colts won't have 5 gimme turnovers if there is a re-match.

    That's right. But just because it's the playoffs it doesn't mean your turn off your brain. I saw the Chiefs as an average team all year. They were an average team in the playoffs. The Ravens offense has been overrated all year. They were still overrated in the playoffs. A W is a W. You are right about that. Only thing is, some Ws are more impressive than others.

    Yeah I agree, regular season doesn't matter too much. And the Pats were in that game until the end, despite all the turnovers, and they are a vastly different team now. It's just that lately the Colts have played the Pats well, and it's a reason to be uncomfortable.

    Although, on the bright side, Belichick won't be too far behind on the gameplanning. These two teams have played each other so much, how much more is there to know?

    Edit: IF they beat the Chargers. I know it doesn't matter, but I like to pretend that I can jinx something.

    This thread reminds me a bit of Pitt. saying they pretty much won the Super Bowl in 2001- even though they didn't even make it. The "real" Super Bowl is the real Super Bowl. Just IMO, of course.

    Whoever wins tomorrow has to be favorewd over the Colts next week.

    The Colts D gave them their two wins. But I think they are playing over their heads. I really don't think they can stop the Chargers O, and I think Brady can pick them apart.

    Both the Chargers and the Pats have physical D's which will be after Manning all day. The Colts O didn't do squat against the Chiefs nor the Ravens, and I don't expect them to do anything much better against the Pats or Bolts.

    They question is whether theit D can withstand the Chargers' weapons or the Pats' ability to manage the game. I really don't think so.

    If the Pats win tomorrow, the game will be played in Indy, giving the Colts one big advantage, which at least opens the door for them. If the Chargers win, I really don't see them being able to pull out another win.

    I think as long as the team isn't overconfident, what we think doesn't matter. It CAN make us sound obnoxious, though.

    i disagree...chargers will be favored over the colts ..not the pats ..on the road for successive weeks
    the tougher wins by indy have made them more tougher IMO...no one thought they would out physical the ravens or match them and they did

    I certainly hope Indy IS favored. Ya know, the old "disrespect" thing.

    First things first... right now it's time to unplug the chargers, then we can worry about gelding the colts. I'm thinking if we perform against the SD pass rush, the Indy "look mom I can spin around!" pass rush should pose relatively limited problems.
