I'd like to see a Colts vs Bears superbowl with the Colts winning. No doubt it will be Patriots vs New Orleans though, furthering my idea that it's all a big fix.

So who are you rooting for?

I'd kinda like to see the Saints win (even though they beat the Eagles) just because they've never ever won anything. As long as the Patriots don't make the Superbowl, I'm happy.

After them winning like 493 times in recent memory, I'd like to see some new teams in it.

And yes, it is thought that it is all a big fix because the refs are letting the saints win because it's their first year back in the Superdome after Katrina.

If you watch last week's Eagles/Saints game, you can see how the refs called Philly on a false start (one so miniscule that they almost never call it anywhere in the NFL) AFTER the play was well underway, they let Jeff Garcia get taken out, and Hank Baskett caught an awesome pass that would have put the Eagles in Field Goal range to tie it up and go into OT.

The Eagles would have had an easy chance to win had it not been for that (retarded) penalty call by the refs.

DAAAAAAAA BEARS!! cool

As long as Grossman doesnt act stupid and our Defense plays like they were in the beginning of the season, we have a really really good chance. If Hester returns another kickoff or punt, I'm going to find a way to:

1.) Legalize gay marriage.
2.) Become gay myself.
3.) Proceed to marry him.

Heh, I'm joking

It just seems highly suspicious that the patriots started dominating just when all this anti-terrorism stuff started. And what would be a more cheesy comeback story than the Saints devastated by Katrina to make it back to win the Superbowl? Far too convenient to be a coincidence I think.

I'd merry Devon Hester too.
My Jets bit it early, but a 10-6 record was a victory in itself considering this was supposed to be a recovery season.

So now I'll have to go with the Saints, just because their story is dramatic. Reggie Bush, rallying the team up against the odds to take on stronger and challenging teams... It's a fun underdog story that makes me want to root for 'em.

After seeing/hearing how the Bears' "fans" acted after the first half of the Bear v Packer game, I hope the Bears get their asses kicked today. I actually kinda like The Bears, but their fans don't deserve a Superbowl, not if you heard how they were booing their 13-2 NFC leading team as they went into the locker room after the first half. Low rent all the way.

Have you watched the bears play? They are often terrible and its usually sheer luck that they pull something out of the bag and win. I can understand why their fans get mad because they don't just play badly when they play badly but they make stupid mistakes and give stupid penalties that a professional team should not be making. Plus the booing actually seems to make them come out the next half/quarter and play better.

What about after 9/11 when the Yankees lost in the World Series to the Diamondbacks? That doesn't follow your theory...

These are coincidences, not conspiracies.

ANYWAY, though, I am a much bigger Bears fan than my sig implies. I totally would have gone all out with a matching avatar and bragged about our awesomeness in my sig, but when I did that to the Cubs (the only other team I love to death), they had an abysmal season.

Before we get to the Superbowl, however, we must defeat the Saints, which would upset the conspiracy theorists. I think the Bears have a good chance, even though they are not favored by "experts" who didn't acknowledge a 6-0 start to the 16 game season...

Ditka. Swasage. Da Bears.

Well I don't think it's a fix as far as the patriots anyway... there has been no sympathy on them from the refs. In fact, they actually changed the rules in an attempt to stop the patriots. They started dominating because they had good teamwork, some great players, and a good coach. As for the Saints, I haven't watched any of their games, so I have no idea.

A team does not go 13-3 by "sheer luck". They are a quality team who no doubt deserves to represent the NFC at the Super Bowl. But for fans to turn that quick on a team-you sure as heck wouldn't see that at Lambeau, not in a million years. I say "Go Saints!"

You're right. They went 13-3 because of their defense and special teams. Rex Grossman saved the defense one time all season.

You're also saying we don't deserve a Superbowl because we turned on the team. We didn't. We turned on Grossman. After having high expectations of him after drafting him from Florida, he's been injured the last two years. This has frustrated Bears fans because we knew we had a good team, but a revolving door of crappy QB's weren't able to do anything special with a good team. This year, we didn't want to be caught unexpected with Grossman down again, so we got Brian Griese, who was an adequate starter in Tampa Bay.

In the preseason, Grossman was terrible and Griese was amazing. When the regular season came around, Grossman started throwing, and was the NFC Player of the Month for September. After that, he started fumbling snaps (with Olin Kreutz, arguably the best center in the NFC/L!!!), making bad reads, throwing interceptions galore, and throwing 50 yard passes at the dumbest times. It was truly painful to watch. After a couple games of this, the fans cried out for Brian Griese, who did amazing in the preseason. This motivated Grossman, and he was adequate for a couple games, then got a 3.8 QB rating against the Vikings. He did well against the Lions and Tampa Bay, but then got a 0.0 QB rating against the Packers. 0.0!!!!!!!!!!! Griese came in for the second half, and only fared slightly better. At least he scored a TD.

Grossman is seen as the weakest link on the Bears. The rule of thumb is if he does well, the amazing defense and special teams can seal the win. If he's bad, we have a snowball's chance in hell of winning. After waiting around 2 years for an oft-injured QB, we do deserve better than what he has been doing. We are not asking for an MVP-caliber player. We are asking a solid player who doesn't throw turnovers, fumble snaps, and throw downfield into triple coverage.

Da. Bears.

I guess I see your point. I now too would turn on the QB who brought you to 13-3. Sorry for the mistake.

BTW Where was the awesome D against the Packers? Grossman did not lose by himself. That was a meaningless game. That is why booing him/them...

What a comeback! You want it for Peyton's sake though. The Patriots have had their time. Tom Brady's hall of fame anyway. That team will be regarded as great no matter what happens. Manning still has something to prove. It's later in his carreer and he deserves this last right of passage. He'll never truly be considered an NFL legend if he can't even walk away with one ring...

Oh, and Tony Dungee said my cities name in an interview! He said that Fort Wayne would be a good place to have Superbowl XLI. The Colts Patriots game was probably the most emotional ride I've had in a while. I was screaming at the TV the first half and going even crazier at the second half when we came back! That interception was the "zing!" to end it all!

Well I can't not root for a team in the Super Bowl. I'm an Eagles fan, they lost, so I was rooting for the Saints, they lost, so now I'm rooting for the Colts.
