    I will be rooting for the Colt's at the Super Bowl and here is why. First and foremost, I still hate the Bears for SB20. Not that we lost, but the whole Super Bowl Shuffle, disrespecting their opponents, and putting the Fridge in to score instead of Walter Peyton. I can't stand Ditka, as a coach or an announcer.

    This is Manning's chance to win the SB. If he can get this last monkey off his back and win, I think that it will be such a burden off him and a releif that I don't think he will have the desire as much. If the Colts win they will be one and done, just like the Steelers, Buccaneers and Ravens. I'm tired of dealing the the Colts in the post season so, let them win it and the fade away. Then Manning will live off that one SB victory for the rest of his career, just like Brett Favre ( another one and done champion. I also admire Manning for putting the record straight and calling the Patriots "classy" after we took a week of crap from the Chargers.

    That's one thing unique about Brady. Since he won it early in his career, he got a taste and desire for it that will never go away. I already can't wait for next year

    I don't see how a Pats fan can root for the Colts. They just ripped our hearts out and we start throwing bouquets at them. I hope the Bears stomp them into the Miami turf until the Colts' drool all over themselves and Polian does a swan dive from the press box.

    Well, first and foremost, I am a football fan. There should be mutual respect between us and the Colts. The players feel that way. I am over this loss and ready to move on. However, I don't see how any Patriot fan could possibly root for the Bears. They gave us the most embarrassing loss in our history and totally disrespected us before, during and after the game. Maybe I have a longer memory than most people, but I am shocked that there are Patriot fans rooting for the Bears

    Exactly. I hope the Colts suffer a collapse of epic proportions.

    It's interesting that I've noticed the Pats fans who now want to root for Manning or the Colts all heard the same speech by Manning where he called some Pats 'classy'. I think that short speech by Manning has been clouding a lot of their judgement!!

    I'm not rooting for the Colts. Because :

    - I hate them.
    - I hate them.
    - If the Bears win at least I can think "maybe they would have beaten us".
    - I hate them.

    I'd root for the Colts if I was related to NaPolianning,but I'm not so for the first time since I can remember,I will root for the NFC. An NFC win is good for football,and a Colts loss is even better.
    There is no way I would want to see a franchise like the Colts succeed.They are the antichrist of football. As lowly as Rex may be on the QB scale,at least that team plays the game.
    A Colts win will have strange consequences down the road,and if they begin to dominate? :nono:

    I think you are missing the point I was trying to make. I have no love of the Colts either, but I hate Chicago more. After we see two weeks of highlights from the 85 Bears we all will sick of it.

    But I say let Manning win one and then, I believe the Colts will fade away to mediocrate, just like the Steelers, Ravens, and Buccaneers. With extra draft picks I see the Pats reloading and being a top contender again.

    I know. I hate Polian. But I do respect guys like Manning, Freeney, and Harrison. Patriot fans rooting for the Bears just seems wrong.

    I'm with ya, brother. But you'll never explain it to guys who didn't live through Superbowl XX.

    Besides, that was a nice move by Manning calling the Pats a classy organization, when he could have rubbed it in.

    So he gets a one-game bye with me.

    I'm sorry that Polian will win one, but I still hope Manning beats the Bears. Besides, they are going to win no matter who we root for :D

    I lived through the 85 Bears killing us. I remember it well. But that was NOT this Bears team and this Pats team. So I can get past that.

    Whereas THIS Colts team beat our Pats team in a truly craptastic fashion. And Polian is a freakin' psycho. Plus, if they win, there will be the big media push that the Colts of this decade may be greater than the Pats....you know there will be. You just know it.

    GO BEARS.

    I can't root for either of these teams. Let the best team win on Sunday.

    Can't root for a rival team like the Colts and can't root for a team that represents the worst superbowl loss in Pats history. So whoever it goes to will deserve the win but I'm sure the winning fans will be obnoxious for the next year at least.

    Do you have any idea how ****y the Colts and their fans would get with a win. Do you have any idea how much more bootlicking the media darling Colts would get with a win? I can't stand either team really. If the Bears win it will be in spite of Rex Grossman and because their defense is the best in football. That's about it.

    I'd like to think I will root for the colts so Manning can get his ring...

    However ... I think the Bears are going to crush them.

    The Bears can and will shut down their running game and Dallas Clark. Marvin Harrison has always sucked in playoffs ... that leaves 1 guy to throw to ... is reggie up to being a superstar???

    I respect what the Colts were able to accomplish coming back against the Pats on Sunday.

    I respect Marvin Harrison.

    I even have developed a grudging respect for Peyton Manning.

    But as far as I'm concerned, FVCK the Colts, and most especially FVCK Polian. I hope a miracle happens and the Bears crush the Colts.

    At first, I was going to be completely indifferent about this Super Bowl. But now, with Polian's mouth, I hope this "poetic justice" takes place. I hope the Colts have the lead for about 58 minutes, then the Bears take a lead. Then have Manning drive them for a tying or winning FG, and have it blocked right in their kicker's face (won't mention his name). Would that be poetic justice? Think Polian will have a meltdown after spending all that money to get him, and that bullying and getting rules changed to benefit his team, et al and have something like that happen?

    I am at the point now, that Polian is such a pathetic individual, and carrying on like a scorned lover with childish vendettas of some sort, and tiresome rants and raves. I actually am beginning to feel sorry for sad sack.


    So, as Jack Nicholson said in "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest"......

    I'll be doing the same thing this Superbowl that I did the last Superbowl, not root for anybody. Don't care about or like either team so I won't even watch. I hope both teams beat the crap out of each other and that neither scores a point. What would the NFL do if it ended in a scoreless tie?!?!

    The only team I would have rooted for beside the Pats would've been New Orleans for the pure human interest story for their geographic region but they lost too. :bricks:

    I want to Colts to win jsut so the media will shut the hell up about Payton not winning the big one becuase you know if they lose it'll start all over again. After the Colts win they will have to find a new player to say can't win the big one and i hope and pray it's in the NFC

    Stop looking back at the 85 BEARS - Thats stupid,if you were alive back then you would know that ALL those guys were just a bunch of arrogant jerks,this team has really no bigmouths and plays hard nosed football and deserve where they are,Stop whining about the SB 21 years ago and get real,Rex Grossman is no McMahon,he took bashing all year from the media and stats experts but put it aside to put his team in position to win a world championship-respect them - AND BETTER YET,F--K THE COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....

    I wish the Pats would have routed the Colts in the AFCCG like the title of this thread implies...I think. :confused:

    After all those insipid Payton Manning commercials, I can't root for him...Ever! (I know Brady had commercials before and hosted SNL and all that). If Manning wins, it will only get worse. Payton is having a HOF carreer with HOF WR's and a HOF TE. Brady is doing more with street free agents and cast-offs. Who's the better QB?

    I'm rooting for the Colts. I take pride in the assumed AFC dominance over the NFC and don't want *that* Rex-Grossman-lead Bears team holding the Lombardi. But here's another reason why I want Indy to win:

    Thursday night opener of 2007...New England at Indianapolis. The Pats players have to stand there and watch Indy raise their SB41 banner. I'm sure Sunday's loss will have already fueled their fire for 2007, but this game will re-ignite it for any guys who let it die down to a simmer. I want this Pats team *p1ssed* all season long. Think 1984 49ers after losing the NFCCG the year prior. Think 1985 Chicago after getting blanked in the NFCCG the year prior. The 2007 opener in Indy with all the banner hoopla will be the perfect start to kick off a season long whoopass on the rest of the league.

    Regards,
    Chris

    All I really care about is seeing the Patriots get back to the superbowl in future years. Rooting against other teams is wasted energy to me. Accordingly, my first question is whether there is any particular result in this superbowl that will help the Patriots in future years.

    I believe there is. Very few teams get back to the superbowl quickly. It's what's so amazing about what the Patriots have done in the parity era. Winning, unfortunately, breeds contentment and lack of drive, and it also promotes an atmosphere where players, and particularly free agents, feel more free to put themselves ahead of team.

    I short, we only get Brady for a few more years, and I believe that our chances are better next year with a satiated rather than hungry colts team. That's all I care about. The reality is that I would gladly trade the colts winning the superbowl this year for even a 2 percent greater chance that we'll make it there next year.

    Plus, I simply find it impossible to root against Tony Dungy.
