Divisional Playoff Weekend

To the:

Philadelphia Eagles
Seattle Seahawks
Baltimore Ravens
San Diego Chargers

Thank you for participating in the 2006 NFL Divisional Playoffs. You can pick up your parting gifts in the losers locker room.

Congratulations to the:

Chicago Bears
New Orleans Saints
Indianapolis Colts
New England Patriots

We look forward to seeing these four teams compete next weekend for the chance to participate in Superbowl XLl.

The beauty of these four teams is that on any given Sunday, either of them could win a championship. Experience says go with the Patriots; If its true that defense wins championships then go with the Bears; If any one team and its players are finally due a title then maybe the Colts with Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison are the bet; And if you wanna go with a heartfelt headline storybook ending where a team and city triumph over tragedy then you must go with the New Orleans Saints.

I'd like to see the Saints win it all. To see a team overcome what they have shows the committment level of their entire organization. If the Colts can get past their nemesis the Patriots, then they also have a good shot at winning it all. Seeing Tom Brady lead his team to a comeback victory yet again makes any fan envious of having such a quarterback. As for Da Chicago Bears, they've got Lovie's Luck riding with them. And with that quarterback of there's they'll need every bit of it.
