Denver - because I harbor a dislike of New England.

I am rootin’ for Tim Tebow tonight, though I am ultimately for my Green Bay Packers winning it all and taking the trophy home.

65 and sunny.. wow.. should be a good game!

Will Alex Smith reign supreme? or will BRees and the Cajun wave tip the 9ers boat? and will Tim beat Tom?

Too bad it’s a spare the air day here, we can’t burn wood or charcoal .. other than that, bring it on!

Yeah, but you'll probably have the last laugh.

I'm VERY happy the Niners got the #2 seed, which means a home game against your team. I seriously doubt we would have a chance in New Orleans, but since the game is at Candlestick, there is a chance.

I mean, if you can lose at St Louis, then there is a chance you'll lost too at Candlestick.

It's been a great season for the Niners nonetheless.

It seems incredible the 49ers haven’t hosted a divisional playoff game in 14 years. Growing up as a football fan it was almost automatic that they’d be in this round every year.

The offense never showed up. Defense could only hold them for awhile.

Saban out coached MIles and the players were better prepped for the game.

Hats off to Bama.

Oddly enough, you can blame Monday on Les Miles and his coddling of Jefferson, giving the QB much more credit than he deserved as a person and a player.

I suspect we’ll get another BCS rule “tweak” next year making only conference champions eligible for the BCS title game.

It does seem incredible. But so does the turnaround this year to a 13-3 season.

Harbaugh has worked wonders.

It is NASTY cold in New England right now, and after dark..? With the wind..?

I wouldn't sit outside for 3 hours to watch that game if it was right across the street. B-r-r-r-r-r...

Would love the see Denver take out the Patriots and put a sock in the yap of the smug and arrogant fans round here...

IMO the Divisional playoff round is the best weekend of the NFL season. After going 3-1 last week, this weekend I'm going with the:
Saints over the Niners
Patriots over Broncos
Ravens over Texans
Giants over the Pack
Although I'm picking against the Broncos and Packers I'll be rooting hard for both of them. Have a good one folks!

Your Pats aren't going to get much loving on this thread.
You would have if you were facing the Steelers.

Got to like Tebow, but I just don't see Brady blowing this one.

I'm not going to jinx anything.

These guys play well against one another.
Was rooting for you guys to beat the Cowgirls.
That loss to Rams woke the Saints up.
Hadn't lost a game since.
Our defense needs to show up today.
As long as Brees had his mac & beef dish last night, he should be fine.

And yes, you guys had a great season this year.

I always rooted for Steve Young.

Probably.

Was fine with it.
if OSU had beat Iowa State, they would have played for the crown.

Agreed. What do you think about the idea of scheduling the top 4 BCS finalists in two bowl games against each other and then having the winners battle it out the following week?

Makes too much sense. The BCS doesn't think logically. LOL.

It would be so much better than watching to 6-6 teams battle it out in a bowl game.

Forgot to give you credit for calling an overtime in one of the playoff games.

I missed it. Had to go to a party that day.
Seems I missed a great game and a new overtime rule being inserted.

Hope we get better refereeing than last week. Someone please tell the refs (and the announcers and coaches too) the when the ball breaks the plane of the yard to gain for a first down, the play is not over. And if the person holding the ball pulls it back, or retreats, without being touched by an opposition player, he doesn't get the greatest ever forward progress of the ball.

And they need to stop blowing the whistle too early.

My idea would be to do the traditional bowl games, and then after that select the four best teams for the playoffs. I don’t think we need to completely scrap tradition to get a playoff.
