Team Satan has a chance against the Saints since New Orleans is a bad road team, and even worse in crappy weather. Hopefully Brees can keep it together.

St Mary's School for the Blind. St Mary's is a 10-point favorite.

According to this guy, they were supposed to play the Falcons in the Super Bowl.

A team whose fans cheered their own quarterback getting hurt won’t win anything any time soon. It’s a Houston attitude, very bitter and angry. They deserve their lot.

At least The Texan fans aren't Raider fans.

Both team's fans suffer through terrible teams, but the Texan's fans aren't incarcerated.

Rumor is that California has let 20% of it's prisoners out - mostly so they can steal, and then buy tickets, so the Raider games have enough attendance to keep from being blacked out locally on TV. Then the rest of the Raider fans, still in the Big-House will have games to watch.

I didn’t expect my Iggles to make the playoffs, so I am shocked they won the division. Anything is a bonus from here on out. Brees will be tough.

Thanks for posting this update.

I was very sorry to see my Ravens lose today.

Me, hubby, the kid and the kid’s hubby all root for different teams.

In order: Ravens, Falcons, Giants, Redskins.

AND WE ARE ALL BIG FAT LOSERS!

From the article-

Houston general manager Rick Smith, who never receives the credit he deserves, has put together the best roster in the AFC. And it’s not only that I believe in these Texans; it’s also that I don’t believe in anyone else in the conference. The Baltimore Ravens are better on defense than they were a season ago — a season which ended with a Super Bowl title — but they’re very thin in the passing attack sans Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta. The New England Patriots will win a ton of games because of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, but because of everyone else, they won’t advance in the playoffs. As I wrote last week, questions abound with the Denver Broncos. And I’m not jumping on the Cincinnati Bengals’ bandwagon with the rest of America; I just don’t believe Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis can bring Cincy a title. Thus, Houston grabs the No. 1 seed in the AFC and makes the first trip to the Super Bowl in franchise history.

So, there you have it: Falcons vs. Texans in XLVIII. Matt Ryan and Matt Schaub flip their individual scripts — and those of their respective franchises — forever.

After reading that I am emailing my résumé to NFL.com for any openings as a sports writer and ‘prediction Specialist”

Going with teams more used to playing in miserable weather is not too imaginative, but I cannot find fault with your thinking............

“Team Satan”? Why you MFer (mother friend). What makes the Eagles satan? We won fair and square. Beat them Cowgirls in Jerryworld.

The Raiders fans in Morgan Hill went nuts when the Niners missed that field goal today. You might have thought that the Raiders had just won the Super Bowl rather than getting beaten by Denver so badly.

Worst fans and franchise in professional sports, media darlings, horrible crime infested Leftist city, Satan roots for them.

I don't hate them because they beat the Cowboys, they did win fair and square. I hate them because they deserve to be hated.

Philly hates Dallas after their line backer in a circa 60’s game gave a cheep shot to their runner Tim Brown, broke his jaw and he lost nine teeth!

You're a sad, sad, person. You probably never been there. And you do listen to the media too much. They threw snow balls at Santa probably over 40 yrs. ago. yet the media keeps pounding and pounding. lol

The media love affair was stronger when McNabb was there. But Kelly's gimmicky college offense has revived it. They just barely beat a completely emasculated team of second stringers to make the playoffs, but I'm sure the Costases of the world will hail the impressive victory.

If there ever was a team that deserved derision from decent people, they're it.

Do they have a prison in the new stadium? They had a judge, court, and jail IN VETERANS STADIUM because Eagles fans are such nice people. At least Raider fans are EX-cons; Eagles fans like to commit their felonies at the game.

Come on man! Michael Irving was a druggie, loud mouth, Dallas Cowboy. The Cowgirls are one of our biggest rivals. And he had the biggest mouth of any Cowgirl. We’re all fans. What would you expect?

The media loves the Pats, Cowboys, Packers, NY teams, and Payton Manning, and that’s about it. The Eagles mmy generate some interest, but they are generally lumped in with the rest of the league. And the fans get template reporting. Blah blah blab Santa Claus yadda yadda yadda boo McNabb at the draft and repeat. And then the general public buys into the cliche. It’s a bore.

Some of that happened from drunks, but crap like that happens everywhere. The majority of the reaction was to Deion Sanders doing some sort of rain dance/look-at-me prayer as if he would be the one to make Irvin rise and walk.

Jeez, look at the Philly fans all butt-hurt because their team was called bad names. Aren’t you Philly people used to dodging bullets and getting in knife fights? I didn’t think some trash talking could make you pout.

I think the Steelers are the number one media team. But what is clear about The Eagles is that the media vastly overstate their talent and ability, this year included. From a marginal McNabb to the whole "running quarterback" nonsense with Vick, to this new kid who has won a couple of games being touted as the new Eagles franchise quarterback. It's definitely a bore, I'll give you that.

I do think the Saints might lose, but they'll lose to the weather, not the Eagles.
