    Maybe rent is a better term here. Playoffs are here and we're nowhere to be seen, so time to jump on a bandwagon.

    AFC:
    Titans
    Steelers
    Chargers
    Dolphins
    Ravens
    Colts

    NFC:
    Giants
    Panthers
    Cardinals
    Vikings
    Falcons
    Eagles

    I'll go first...I'm taking the Panthers and the guy I've been following since college, DeAngelo Williams

    I think I'll stay with an AFC team, to be chosen in a purely logical manner:

    Titans - Inbred sons of Uranus. No thanks.

    Chargers - Why name a team after those shiny things that go under plates?

    Dolphins - They don't have feet, so no football.

    Ravens - Ravens are birds, like those white-wing dove that crap all over my car.

    Colts - Horseys. Good for a Bud commercial but no.

    Steelers - Steel workers have feet, they drink beer, and they have never crapped on my car (yet).


    I'll go with the Steelers.

    Don't really have a team to root for in the playoffs. I'll root for competitive and entertaining games. AND, for whoever plays the titans. :cool:

    I'm rolling with the Eagles, the stars seem to be aligning for them and I won't argue with that.


    On a side note, could you imagine the sheer ecstasy the media would be in if the Giants and Colts played one another. Not only would it be a battle of the manning's, it would be the anniversary of the "greatest game...".

    I think we'd all end up vomitting unicorns and rainbows from the overexposure.

    I will adopt the Dolphins - Vikings with the Vikes ending their personal SB jinx. I predict the Giants vs Ravens with the Ravens taking the crown.

    I'm on the Dolphins bandwagon. Gotta love the great turnaround season that they've had.

    Pennignton for MVP?

    NEG rep coming your way... Just joking! That really made me laugh. Maybe we can find that Carolina Carr jersey at the Superbowl. :)

    LOL, good post. I am going with the Steelers myself. I've got no emotional investment in any of those teams, but I had fun on the Steelers board the week we played them.
