I've been trying to get Matt active on TC again for a while now, but the answer was so obvious all along...

Out of all the teams in the tournament Green Bay was the team I was rooting for to go all the way. There was NO WAY I could root for Philly. Just because they have a black quarterback doesn't sway me in the least ( I rooted for the John Elway Broncos against the Doug Williams-led Washington Redskins in 1988). Philly is a divisional opponent of The Giants. I can't root for them. Besides, who couldn't help but root for Brett Farve with what he's been through the last few weeks. Alas...they are done.

I'm going out on a limb and say that Charlotte will defeat Philly on Sunday and go to the Super Bowl. Two reasons why I hope this will happen. (1) John Fox is the former defensive coordinator for the Giants. (2) I'll be in Charlotte Super Bowl weekend. It'll be absolutely INSANE if Charlotte goes to THE BIG GAME.

I am with you on Green Bay Anthony, although I am a little biased being from Wisconsin. I am going to take Jackie's comments as sarcasm and assume she is happy that Green Bay lost. Any particular reason you dislike the team, or is just that overall hatred people from Illinois have for Wisconsin sports teams?

I was born in WI, raised in IL, and then moved back to WI. Because of this, I grew up with a liking for both the Bears and Packers and root for each team each year. In fact, I love the sport of football so much, that there isn't a team I really despise. I had a sort of hatred for Tampa Bay last year and into this season, but only because I HATE Warren Sapp and dislike Keyshawn Johnson. (Sapp still hasn't gotten his for the injury to Chad Clifton last year). Johnson is gone now and it looks like Sapp will be too, so I look forward to enjoying those games more in the future.

What I really hate in the playoffs is when the better team does not advance. In my opinion, Green Bay was the better team, but again was beat by Philly in the last few moments (cursed November Monday night game). The Vikings 15-1 season in '98 where they lost to Atlanta by a missed field goal was just as painful. Atlanta went on to be embarrassed by the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl (34-19). The Vikings stood the best chance, but instead the Super Bowl was a blowout and boring.

My pick for the Super Bowl champs this year is the Indianapolis Colts. They hammered Kansas City and New England is just a lucky-season team waiting to be defeated. I think that Carolina is playing a better game than Philly, but they may putter out here at the end. Only three football games left until the bleak existence that is the off-season. Here's hoping for some great games.

The 2001 season for the Bears provided some much needed playoff action for Soldier Field. Unfortunately their 13 - 3 team was defeated at home in the playoffs by none other than the Philadelphia Eagles.

I too grew up near Chicago, but I never paid much attention to the Bears because, well, they sucked. I always had the Bulls too root for if I felt like watching sports. Anyway, I ask because I don't know: Do the Bears actually blame their sucking on a curse like the Cubs do with that stupid goat?

Jackie, it's not so much the Cubs blaming Steve Bartman (the fellow who tried to catch the ball), but their fans who are doing so. To them, it's his fault that the Cubs just totally collapsed. That's like saying that the NY Giants suffered the second-worse collapse in NFL playoff history because I danced around the TV during halftime of that game.

The Bears haven't been any good since the days of Jim McMahon and his many headbands. Methinks that will continue.
