    My pics to make it on are:

    NFC championship-Minny vs. NO

    AFC championship-Indy vs. NYC

    Superbowl-Minny vs. Indy-which should be absolutely epic

    Champs-Favre will get one more ring before he retires

    BTW welcome RRF LBF!

    I'm a Cowboy's fan so it's a little tough to watch the Vikings dominate like this. It was expected but still...on the other hand I hope to see Favre win another ring-he's one of the GOAT's so it would be nice to see him end his career with a bang.

    Hmmm, Saints vs Vikes and Colts vs Chargers

    No matter the outcomes, should be an exciting Super Bowl this year!!!

    EDIT: Thats right, I'm calling a Charger win over New York tonight!

    Colts over Saints in the Super Bowl. Old fart Favre is going to get put down by Brees.

    I hope Favre seriously retires and never comes back. His retiring thing is getting old. I don't care what it takes to do this, I just hope it happens

    I need to admit something, I've never taken more pleasure in watching a QB throw a pick than when I witnessed Brett Favre throw across body on his back foot at the end of the 4th quarter. All he had to do was run it up field ten years, which he had room to do so, and he would have set his kicker up from the game winning field goal. Instead he completely blew it, just like he did with his last pass as a Packer in the NFC championship game of a couple years ago. It was sweet this time. Favre should have retired after the fourth or fifth time he decided too in that summer the Packers named Aaron Rogers their new starting QB. Instead he's gone on to have a disappointing season in NYC and a total debacle this season in the NFC Championship game on the level of his final pass as a Packer. I hate the Vikings and I will enjoy watching Favre falter as long as he wears that jersey.

    Colts over Saints.

    I'm praying for another miracle like the Giants beating the Pats a couple years ago. I'm a Saints fan, so I'm elated to see them in the Super Bowl. I just think our defense won't have an answer for Peyton. I hope I'm wrong though, but if I was a betting man I'd put my money on the Colts.

    Well I'm a Payton Manning fan so we have a problem.

    The Saint were lucky to make it to the bowl game and I'm not so sure they're ready for the Colts even with two weeks of planning. I am predicting one of those oddly common one sided Super Bowl scores.

    Lucky? How do you figure? It came down to mistakes and mentally the Saints were far more superior than the Vikings yesterday. Although his numbers weren't his usual explosive stats, Brees played the perfect game. The better team won yesterday Apollo. Give credit where credit is due. N.O. deserves to be in the Bowl this season.

    Default Favre is a tragic hero?

    It was not enough for Favre's team to reach the Super Bowl -- he had to get the credit. Game tied with 19 seconds remaining, Favre scrambled at about the New Orleans 40-yard line, with open field ahead of him. All he needed to do was run a few yards, hook-slide, call timeout, and the Vikings' strong-legged kicker, Ryan Longwell, had a solid chance to win the NFC championship. But the credit had to go to Favre; he had to throw a spectacular pass at the end, so television announcers would swoon. So he heave-hoed a dramatic across-the-field pass. It was intercepted, and the Saints won in overtime.

    Perhaps you are thinking, "It was just a dumb mistake, and the whole thing happened in a couple of seconds." No. Two years of Favre's life built up to that moment. For two years, Favre has insisted that entire NFL franchises, the Jets and the Vikings, become thralls to his celebrity. He has used his stature to demand, demand, demand -- the crux of the demands are always attention and publicity for himself. Now he is brought low. In two of the past three seasons, Favre has lost in the NFC Championship Game. Each time, his team seemed poised to win at the end; each time, Favre's final play was a disastrous interception. And each of those title losses eventually came in overtime -- to punish Favre for his hamartia, twice the football gods allowed him to come so close, so close, then denied him. Favre has been brought so low, he is now being laughed at in Wisconsin, and he has only himself to blame.

    I really wish it wasn't two teams I liked in this one. I was kind of hoping for a Saints/Jets or Colts/Vikes Super Bowl. But oh well, I guess I gotta go with the team team I'm puttin' money on. Go Colts! Peyton deserves this one too, great season with a few unknowns!

    Props to the OLG and NBA for finally getting pro ball back on the Pro-Line!! Now i can start winning again...

    That was Gregg Easterbook at his finest (aka the TMQ). My hate for Brett Farve started after he tried to fuck over the Packers two years ago and add that to the list of commentators who suck him dry every Vikings game, made that interception even better

    Congrats to the Saints. I doubted them every step of the way.
