    Wonder how enthused the rest of the country would be if it was NE and NY in the Super Bowl?

    You assume that the Giants could get by SF. I think that's a huge assumption.

    Well, lots of people will want the Pats, just because they've become sort of America's Team over the last 10 years.

    Can't imagine anybody without a rooting interest caring for the 49ers, Ravens, or Giants. They're just 3 teams that nobody really cares about. People probably don't dislike them, but don't like them either. Just bland teams.

    Without the Packers in the way (which is not a conclusion yet), I can't see the Pats losing. Of course, I couldn't really see NO losing or BG losing (if it happens) either.

    I don't think he was assuming anything. He was putting a hypothetical situation out there that had both teams from the same part of the country.

    It looks like a conclusion now. I dont see the Pats losing either. I, like you, expected NO to win. I actually expected it to be Green Bay and New Orleans in the championship next week. Looks like I was wrong on both counts.

    Guess State Farm will need to find a new commercial run.

    Totally different game. I don't expect you to understand that, though. BTW, balls/strikes are not subject to instant replay, which is what I was discussing here with Referee Bill Leavy's refusal to overturn that no fumble call.

    That's a crock of crap! If anything, more people hate New England, Brady, and their arrogant head coach than like them.

    Refs are trying to give it to GB. That roughing the passer was BS.

    With all due respect, you don't. Baseball is a very different game. This isn't the thread to elaborate on that, so I won't go into it.

    I'd recommend you officiate both sports (I have), then you'd understand exactly what I am saying. At the present time, you do not.

    I agree. Bill Leavy is trying his darndest to keep Green Bay in the game.

    BTW, the pussification of the NFL, particularly where the QB rules are concerned, all comes from that wimpy Tom Brady.

    Not to worry many of us do. ;)

    If a building implodes...it collapses.

    If a team hands 3 scores to another on fumbles on a sliver platter, even a lowly / over-rated team like the Giants can somehow avoid losing. That was their worst defensive performance of the season statistically, and they had no run game.

    It would seem the mental /enthusiasm part of the game stemming from the death of the GB Offensive Coordinator's son may have played a major role in what looked like an "unfocused" offense. At least 2 GB TDs were dropped among almost 10 passes.

    As for the refs...they had little to do with the outcome of this latest game, and even the least knowledgeable of fans understands that. Put simply...the Packers lost the game, the Giants didn't really win it.

    You're right spartanstew. It happens. Look at the Saints. Deja Vu all over again.

    Dear Green Bay,

    Enjoy the off-season. You deserve it. You may have the greatest quarterback in a generation, but your receivers SUCKED, and your defense SUCKED even more. You might want to return that defensive secondary you borrowed from Pittsburgh. It didn't work for them, either.

    P.S. You're right...as those who really know what went on this week know why things turned out this way. The rest is a farce.

    Actually, you folks don't. There is simply no way for someone who hasn't umpire or played baseball at the higher levels to understand. I don't hold that against you; it's simply a fact.

    And that's why I refuse to call Rodgers the best QB of all time (at least yet).

    What a weekend of football... not sure I could have enjoyed it more, without the Bears playing and winning....

    Absolutely fantastic, classic game to start Saturday with... 4 lead changes in 3 minutes.

    Saturday Night: Real QB vs Not-So-Real QB... Brady put a clinic on how the position should be played.

    Sunday Game 1: Almost saw the Ravens go down, in another good game back and forth.

    And then of course... The Giants come through and quiet the frozen tundra.....
