So now I have to root for the NFC. I just can't stand to root for NE or Baltimore. I was really hoping one of them would have lost.

It' got to be Atlanta. SF has too many SBs.

I probably like them better than the Falcons. But they have too many SB wins. Don't like competition in that area with the Steelers.

I think the obvious underdog of all the teams left is Atlanta. I think they're still capable because of their balance, but I felt the Falcons got away with one yesterday, and I wasn't only talking about the 4th quarter collapse. I think the Falcons are lucky that the Hawks just didn't seem to get going until much later in the game, and to their credit, the Falcons took advantage of that. The Falcons did impress me with their running game, which I thought they had lost late in the year. The Falcons did a reasonably good job of containing the Seahawks' offense, but they will be facing a more creative offense in SF.

The Ravens squeaked a 31-30 win against the Patriots earlier during the regular season at Baltimore, so they know they can beat this team. This time around the game will be at Foxborough with a trip to the Super Bowl at stake. Gotta go with the Patriots, simply because they have home field. A 49ers Patriots match up would make for a high scoring Super Bowl based on their earlier meeting this season. One intangible going for the Ravens, is Ray Lewis..the team may be inspired to win one for the old man.

I do think a Pats/49ers Super Bowl would be the most intriguing match-up but you can't use previous results as an accurate gauge for the next games results. As an example, the Patriots beat the Giants in a 38-35 thriller in the final regular season game in 2007. They met in the Super Bowl a few weeks later and the Giants won in a not quite as thrilling 17-14 game. Rematches can be great but you almost NEVER get a similar game.

Peyton Manning's bonehead INT basically just gave Tom Brady the AFC. Yes, the Ravens are going into Foxborough with a lot of momentum, and they've already beaten the Patriots this year.

Baltimore beat brady In September at home in Baltimore, and from what I remember, the Pats choked and blew a 10+ point lead late in the game. This is Brady in January at home in Foxborough. Totally different atmosphere.

I hope I'm wrong though. I respect Tom Bbrady, but I've never really liked him, and I hope he loses. I know the Ravens are riding Ray Lewis' emotional story, and Flacco has been playing really well this post-season, but I just don't see them going into Gillette and Beating Tom and Bill in January.

How much of what is said in these forums is accurate? Most is based on many factors and speculation. Two great QB's, I like the chances that it would be a high scoring game rather than a 17-14 game. That said, there are two conference championships games that need to be played before that match up even becomes a reality.

Happens a great deal here, after Packs poor showing, seeing predictions they will no longer be top of the NFC North and out of the playoffs! A "little" too soon to count them out, players on IR will be back!
