Hoping for the Jets, not only are they the last non-dome team left, but the Jets winning the SB and the Vikes not would be really funny.

Go Colts, GEAUX SAINTS!!!

Actually if the Jets win, that would be fine with me.

What time does the Cowboy game come on?

History tells us that usually at least one of the road teams is victorious in this round but both home teams won last year.

Actually I think Polian winds up in the clear if the Jets win today, it shows the Colts really didn’t throw the game, that they could have lost with the starters in. Of course the hang ‘em high crowd never is into reason and logic and stuff.

I sure hope the Jests fans are friendlier...maybe if I don my Joe Willy hairpiece...

Yeah but the fact that they had the lead when he pulled the starters and more importantly that a win would have kept the Jets out of the post season is why he'll get killed if they come up short today.

As a Super Bowl history buff it’s nice to see a franchise finally break through onto the big stage like Arizona did last year. If the Saints do win today that will leave the Lions as the only NFC franchise to have never made it to the big game.

It was only a 5 point lead, it was a very losable game for the Colts. Really in some ways Polian is damned no matter what, if they beat the Jets it “proves” they could have continued the perfect run, if they lose it “proves” they sacrificed the perfect run for nothing.

The fact that they held the Jets season in their hands is why he'd catch hell if they lose today. If they lost to San Diego instead it wouldn't be an issue at all.

Of course if Manning had gotten his leg broken people would be calling Polian an idiot for keeping him in. Everybody loves 20-20 hindsight.

Thanks once again for your work on these threads.

In the NYC area, many Big Blue fans like me and my season ticket holder friends will be going Green today. Later on, we'll be hoping for Drew Brees and Reggie Bush...whom are you pulling for today, or are you one of those dispassionate types who places a wager on whom you think will win? (I figure as a Pats fan it would be REALLY hard for you to root for the Jets...)

Picks can be made or changed until kickoff. After that, you ride with the one trick pony that brought you. On the people who haven't made picks yet, I won't drop you from the chart until the second game kicks off.

Of course, “The Big Game” didn’t really start with the SB era and the Lions DID win some NFL Championships before some of today’s favs were even thought of.

Absolutely. The ironic thing about the '72 Dolphins was they were already playing with their backup QB right up until the second half of the AFC championship game.

Mayors have nothing to do with it, nobody from the city of Detroit ever goes to a game anyway.......Don't forget, before they moved back to the city, they were in Pontiac and still sucked. Well, ok, so Pontiac isn't that much better, but still......

P.S. The Pontiac Silver Dome, previous home of the Lions, recently sold for approx. $500,000.00
