Anybody but the Eagles
Seem to be a mirror image of my thoughts as well, so I like them. Only thing you didn’t cover was the Manning Broncos. I did not root for them either.
Didn’t Eli already affirm that?
Brees or Rivers. Screw Indy. Screw Philly.
If the Pats lose, I root for the NFC team in the Super Bowl unless it's the Philthadelphia Fecals.
If I had to rate my rooting interests for the remaining 8 teams in the SB
Tier 1: Patriots, obvious
Tier2: Eagles, no hard feelings, and Nick Foles back-to-back SB champion amuses me
Tier3: Saints/Chargers: Nice to see Brees match Peyton and exceed Rodgers, and Rivers finally gets a ring
Tier4: Cowboys, Chiefs, Rams: No particular feelings one way or the other about these teams
Tier5: Colts, never forget
for real. lose? who talks like this
I think we can all agree the Colts are #32 of 32. Despite the actual players and even coaches not being that bad, the franchise will never, ever redeem itself for its cowardly actions many times but especially in January 2015.
I would like nothing more than to have them get their hearts ripped out in Foxboro in the AFCCG. Last second heartbreaking TD by Brady sending them into a tailspin. Maybe Irsay would just end it and rid the world of one less billionaire douche.
All fine with me unless one of them signs Peyton or Eli in the meantime
I would prefer a 59-0 beat down of the Colts ala the 2009 Tennessee snow game.
Rivers is a punk. Remember him mouthing off to Indy fans back in the 2007-08 playoffs.
I'm ok with the Chiefs because they have a fairly polite, long suffering fan base. New Orlans fans got theirs 10 years ago and can be insufferable with the "who dat" nonsense, and LA does not actually have football fans.
Eagles/Dallas - Chiefs - Chargers
We aren't going to lose, I am going to be extremely optimistic and say my prayers.
That being said, I don't like Philip Rivers. I don't know if this makes me sound like a jerk, but I'm tired of the media anointing him "Greatest dad of all time", just because he has 8 or 9 kids. And he's managed to "be such a great dad all the while playing football at such a high level".
What in your estimation would be the measure of a father other than, you know, being a father?
For everyone of these losing threads we have five that says we will win, so that offsets some of the bad mojo. Imagine if we didn’t think about losing, we may finally end up blowing some teams away.
I honestly would like to see Andy Reid win a SB. I would spend the night vomiting if Indy wins...
I wouldn't root for the Chiefs because I just plain don't like them, but if we lose to the Chargers I will be pulling for them to go all the way. I do like Rivers a lot, and would like to see him win a Lombardi if the Pats aren't going to get another one. Also like Gates, Hayward, Allen, Gordon and Ingram. All of that is enough that I could probably look past how much of a piece of **** Dean Spanos is. Maybe.
My initial plan was to pull for the Seahawks or Bears if the Pats didn't win it, but with them out the Chargers (and to a lesser extent the Rams) are pretty much the only non-Pats team left that I don't actively dislike.
I can go with the LA or KC. It will be a difficult game for me to watch because I would be cheering for both of them.
Let's hope that's not the case. Pats all the way. That's being overly optimistic.
What does the OP even mean?
If they lose, who am I cheering for?
Then the Red Sox
There was a time (pre Pats dynasty) when SB games were blowouts, but that hasn't happened too often lately. I don't get why the Pats haven't blown any teams away. I definitely thought that the Pats/Philly SB in 2004 was going to be a blowout.
