For me the playoffs have come down to rooting against the Atlanta Falcons and being satisfied with whatever other possible combination of results happen. In fact, I've been given the opportunity to attend the Super Bowl thanks to a close friend and I told him that I could only accept going if the Atlanta Falcons aren't in it. True story. If I had never been to one before I may have felt differently but I was fortunate enough to catch Brett Favre winning his only Super Bowl so that's already been scratched off my bucket list. The idea of Roger Goodell handing over the Lombardi Trophy to Roddy White is painful enough in theory, and to witness it in person in my team's own stadium is just something I am not prepared to endure. Quite simply, that experience would easily vault itself into the top 5 worst of my entire life and I am not exaggerating. It's sad that sports can have this affect on me, admittedly, but here we are. If the 49ers win, I will likely go.
Anyway, back to the games, I'm betting on the 49ers and Patriots to both win and cover the spread. If you like to Bet on NFL I think these picks personally are pretty solid
, but of course don't come looking for me if you're expecting any sort of guarantee. If you like to gamble as intensely as Ralph Malbrough, though, those would be my picks. I'm actually in a pick'em league and the tiebreaker is picking the scores. I picked the 49ers-Falcons' score as 500-0, so I guess I'll have to hope that doesn't come down to a tie. Clearly I'm biased and it's clouded my judgment, but I really do feel like a team that can run the ball, play defense and take care of the football is a horrible matchup for Atlanta. I really do think if the Falcons played the 49ers 10 times, the 9ers would win 7 or 8. The game is in the Georgia Dome, though, and the Falcons have this nasty habit of winning games they don't deserve this year.
Who are you picking in these games?
You should go, especially when the Falcons go! You need to root for the Ravens or Patiots. Make the Dome the loudest superbowl ever where it will be a home game for the AFC team and the Falcons can not hear Matt Ryan barking audibles at them!
And as far as the teams in the dome go.. Of course I am rooting for the 49ers... I hate them, but not as much as the Falcons. In the Suberbowl I will be rooting for the AFC team no doubt. And as far as the AFC championchip goes, I am rooting for Ray Lewis to get a superbowl and be SB47 MVP! It would be the most awesome thing that is not Saints related I would witness in the NFL till now.
Even if I didn't hate the FalcAints like Jews hate Hitler, I wouldn't pick them to win a Super Bowl, especially not this one!
Hell, I get pissed off to the heights of pisstivity if they win a pre-season game.
As much as I hate to pick them, IMO the Patriots will win the Super Bowl if they make it.
If we have a Harbaugh Bowl, then IMO the 40-whiners will win.
Ray Lewis already has a Super Bowl ring when the Ravens beat the Giants in 2000.
@SaintsWillWIn I know. But I mean ending his impressive career with one as MVP would be awesome. I knew Lewis even before I started to watch the NFL start of 2009. He is the biggest legend (non QB) I know.
