Well, this thread's a little confusing, because the title is "Who's gonna win", but the poll question is "Who do you want to win". Not the same thing.

All the fans are unloyal as well. When they have an off season, everyone forgets about them and no one talks about them. Chargers fans are loyal, Giants, Jets, Bear especially. Bears fans and Dolphins fans are some of the most loyal b/c if anyone supports Miami after this season, they are a true fan.
Now that makes about as much sense as braille on a drive up ATM

[quote=X-Greensboro Resident;2520343]No, we don't think. We wish!! We can only wish that somebody can take out these Pats as we can't stand them, most people outside of NE can't. They're probably one of the best teams ever in the NFL and one of the most annoying and most hated. But I don't see it happening, they'll probably win the Super Bowl again. It's hard to like them with Hoody (the Coach), Thug boy (Harrison), Cheesy (Bruschi) and Golden boy (Brady).

I probably won't be watching anymore football this year till next year. I'll be watching my Tar Heels play basketball and hopefully make a run to Final 4 this year.They will![/quote]


AMEN!!!!!!!

A fellow poster stated football fans were disloyal with a few exceptions. Of course, I disagree considering I am a Ram fan...even when they were in Los Angeles, I still rooted for them. Right now they may be crappy but who knows? A better season is in their future...however, since we are discussing the upcoming Super Bowl, I will have to go with the Packers. I have been a longtime Brett Favre fan and would like to see him get another ring. My second choice: the Chargers because it's been awhile since they've been in the Show.

I think it will be Green Bay v. Pats. Pats win it.

I'm going for New England. Just go ahead and get the perfect season over with. Green Bay would be a big suprise though!

Even though New England seems the obvious favorite for winning, I just keep thinking back to the Baltimore, Philly, Giants and Jets game at the end of the season. If they perform like that and the Packers are playing their A game, I have no doubt the Packers will win. My biggest concern is whether or not the Packers will put together 4 quarters of their best play. If they don't, their chances drop really fast.

It's not like the Patriots have some magical ward cast on them that makes them unbeatable. Look how close the Ravens came. The Ravens!

I've been watching football long enough to know not to get too overconfident, no matter how good a team may look. Who thought the Chargers could go into Indy, play without their three biggest stars, and beat the Colts? Who gave the Giants a shot against Dallas? Anything can happen. As Chris Berman always says, "That's why they play the games!"

If the big game ends up being Packers-Patriots, I wouldn't go thinking the game is just a coronoation for New England. Favre is a cagey veteran, and if anyone can pull out an unlikely win, it's him. Besides, the Packers are an extremely balanced team this year. Dominating D-line, sharp DBs, a solid running game, some of Favre's best receivers in a long time (Driver and Jennings don't get a lot of press, only because Favre is their QB, and Favre could make my grandma look like a star receiver!), and then you've got the big wild card .... Brett himself.

I was hoping someone would beat the Pats. Now I hope they get to the Super Bowl, so the Packers have a shot at knocking them off their perch!

I know there are a lot of front-runner bandwagon fans out there ... it always happens, to every team that's winning. I've been following the Packers faithfully since 1982, and I saw the bandwagon load up in the mid-'90s, and then unload again a few years later, and now it's filling back up again. It's just human nature, I guess. Me, I'd rather pull for a team through thick and thin. I'm funny about loyalty that way.
