Any football fans??

Whos winning the super bowl? My Chargers just need to win and they're in! Should be a great game on Sunday... As long as the same chargers that showed up last week show up again.

I don't really think anyone can go into Gillette Stadium and beat the Patriots in the postseason, and i feel the same way about The Seahawks in the NFC. It might just be another Patriots Superbowl win this year... But that offense and defense match up is a ESPN analysts dream!!

I'd like to see the Chargers go places, who knows, they can be solid. I see them as a bit of a longshot at this point though.

There's another NFL going on you'd probably do better to join in on:

I think they like to keep it to one NFL thread.

Mein Auto: You've*got*to be kidding
I like football and I have my team(s). But really, I like a solid contest between two well-matched teams. A blow out sucks- no matter which side my team is on.

The other thing I like about the game is the 'surprise'. The miracle. The once in a lifetime tipped pass, in stride fumble recovery, or even beautifully defended pick 6. I don't care which team is on either side, bc the game is the game. They're just a part of the play.

I like a good hit, too. Early in the last couple seasons, I was lamenting that I would likely not enjoy the game with the regulations imposed. How could you get a good hit? I thought. But the players have adjusted and have crafted an almost artful way in which to ensure any motion is discontinued in the most effective- and league condoned way. The hits are there, they're just not as many blatantly cheap shots. I can live with that.

I enjoy a well-coached game. It's harder for me as a layman to 'see' the coaching at the NFL level. I like to see the perfect call in college and the perfect execution in the NFL. Individual athletic ability on stark display is also a plus when it is so clearly the difference maker for a given outcome.

As a former front liner and often middle-backer, I live for a solid block for big rushing gains. A play designed for 5-10 yards that gets 30 from an early block is a thing of team-made beauty.

What I don't understand is the personal identification people have with a team. Whether it is professionally linked to a home town or collegiate as an alma mater, the performance of 35 players who are less than 1/2 my age and a coaching staff that makes 5x's more than me has very little to do with me personally. I hope they do well and I enjoy the performance, but I do not associate myself with their success. I do have a grand time bugging the cr@p out of people who take it personally though. For some reason for some people, a discussion about 'their' team is akin to talking about their kids. Or, God forbid, their pets. I find often that these are people who identify and sway with the emotion of a game rather than the mechanics of a game. And that's fine. TV cameras like to focus on the crying co-eds, too.
