Steelers
Packers

PLEASE let it be these two teams. I couldn't take the insomnia cure that would be a Jets/Bears Super Bowl.

I, on the other hand, would love to see a Jets/Bears Super Bowl, since no one gave the Jets a chance going into the playoffs, and I'm sure the majority of the pundits will be going with a Packer upset of the Bears. (Also have the fact that I'm a bitter Bucs fan working in my desire to see the Bears in Dallas.)

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Packers are a 3 point favorite, so it wouldn't be a Packer upset.

Just proves my point even more about most people not giving the Bears a chance.

Frankly, I'd be thrilled with ANY of these teams in the Super Bowl.

But I'll go with the Steelers and Packers.

Best divisional weekend EVER. Can't wait for Bears-Packers next week.

Uh, they're three-point underdogs. If that's "not giving the Bears a chance," then you must think that every single NFL game ever has included a team that nobody thought was at all capable of winning. Only one team can be favored per game. It's three points.

I get so sick of people playing this non-existent "disrespect" card. It cheapens it in the few instances where it is applicable. The Jets were one of the teams people pegged as possible Super Bowl winners in the preseason, and they went to the AFC title game a year ago. Come on.

Bears/Jets would be the WORST. I'm obviously totally gung-ho for the Packers to be in the Super Bowl, but if they can't make it, then please god at least let the Steelers win.

So if your a network executive, who do you want playing in the Super Bowl that would pop the most viewer ratings?

I think the ratings would pop for either, I am sure the valued "New York" market would come into play, but Steeler fans are in every state in America, we are legion. I do think the last two Super Bowls with the Steelers were big ratings and maybe better then Giants/Pats. Regardless, if I am Fox I think any scenario is a happy one. Even the small market of Pittsburgh and Green Bay has a ton of fans everywhere. My big gripe is the Obama vs. O'Riley thing. I know it is now traditional for a Presidential interview on Super Bowl Sunday, but let us not turn into a deathmatch. O'Riley is a guy who bitches behind a desk insulated in his own ratings world, the other guy is the leader of the free world. Why make them equals? I am just no looking forward to Fox doing the game especially if its Buck/Aikmen.

As a Steeler fan, I am just happy I don't have to see the Pats, Ravens and Colts in this thing. At least there won't be as much trash talking between the two teams. If Jets/Pats was Jedi, Jets fans had better come prepared for order 66 or should I say orders 43, 86, 7 and 92 to come their way.

I am going to pick the Bears, because like Rich Eisen, I am tired of everyone jumping on the Packers bandwagon. The Bears can tackle and now have a QB who has won a playoff game, so I am taking them. It won't shock me if the Packers win, but like the Pats, I am so sick of hearing about them and Rodgers, I just want them to lose.

Jets/Bears. I would give everything to see the Pack lose just to watch my boss cry like a little girl (Packer fan in Central MN = not good) Also, Big Ben needs to be crushed. (At least in my world.)

I know the Steelers are a very popular team and the Packers are beloved, but there is no one at Fox who isn't salivating at the prospect of New York and Chicago in the Super Bowl.

I don't know if the size of the city matters for the Super Bowl. I think everyone in Chicago or New York who cares about football is going to watch the Super Bowl whether their team is in it or not. The share has been between 61% and 68% of the TV audience for every year since 1987. (The viewership has increased, but of course there are more people in general every year.)

I don't think there's a bad match-up TV wise.

NY/Chi -- markets 1 and 2
NY/GB -- market 1 and a national fanbase
Pit/Chi -- national fanbase and market 2
Pit/GB -- two historical national franchises

That's what I was going to say. Not only will everyone in Chicago and New York watch regardless but everybody in American that watches is going to watch no matter who the teams are.

Personally I'd like to see Green Bay/Pittsburgh. Those are two franchises with a lot of history and exciting teams to watch. Everyone talks about Green Bay offense and Pittsburgh's D but both teams are quietly really good on the other side of the ball too. Plus I think you can spin it as good vs. bad with Rodgers trying to win after replacing Favre (who everyone now hates) while the Steelers can be made out to be the bad guys with Big Ben and Harrison. Of course the Jets can easily be the bad guys as well.

NY/GB -- Sports pundits everywhere get to continue beating the dead Favre horse.

Yeah I realize the Packers are on fire and coalescing but I also saw them score only 10 points in Chicago in w17 in a game they had to have where the Bears were playing some kind of half-in strategy.

Jets have the same "we're doing it, we're really doing it!" unbeatable mojo working so maybe they'll ride it but Pittsburgh's defense isn't soft like New England and Indy's where they can pound it to set up comfortable throws for Sanchez. Maybe Tone will do something Tonetacular.

The Packers can tackle and now have a QB that sets records for most postseason TD passes in the first X games of his career every time he plays.

Don't get me wrong, I'm terrified of this game, but the Packers have a really good offense AND a really good defense*.








*and really ass special teams. Shhhhhh.

Was this the half-in strategy that led to the starters playing the whole game? Or was there some other strategy that I missed that day at Lambeau? Granted, the time management at the end of the 4th quarter looked more like it was the end of the 3rd quarter, but that's just Lovie (as spf would point out).

Standard Vegas betting line "rules" dictate that the home team generally gets 3 pts.

Soooooo:

Jets and PBurgh are actually a pickem

Packers are a actually a 6pt favorite.

Mark me down for a Jets - Pack Superbowl.

That way we can see if my Jets can stifle 4 amazing QBs in a row.

I think the people Lions fans were most curious about performed well. Joey Ballgame, Rogers, and both Williams did pretty well. The O-line is a HUGE concern, and the fork in Garcia's back is visible from miles away.
