    I think I'm seabags and Broncos today. Will certainly be cheering for anyone who hits Kaepernick.

    Disappointment with a loss today, from greatest to least:

    1. Broncos: Peyton Manning's window for a championship is rapidly shrinking, if not completely gone.

    2. 49ers: Three straight NFC Championship games and no Super Bowl championship would be crushing.

    3. Seahawks: It is unthinkable to lose to your biggest rival at home, but the team will be contending for years to come.

    4. Patriots: Hard to feel bad with five Super Bowls and three wins in the bank, plus a Red Sox World Series win as well.

    I don't know how anyone could root for this guy:

    Or this guy:

    But, hey, CDM's right. Can't go wrong with either of these games today. Go Pats!

    Can't really argue with the order of that list, though I definitely think Brady's window is shrinking, just not as rapidly and unlike Peyton he'll definitely be back next year. I give Brady maybe two more seasons as the type of QB we're used to seeing. I also don't know many NE fans who thought we'd be playing in the Superbowl this year either whereas Denver was the favorite to win the AFC Championship for pretty much the entire season.

    I can't think of a better set of championship games. Manning v Brady and Seattle v SF are both juicy.

    I'm going with a Patriots v SF Superbowl.

    Same here, I'd love to see Denver and Seattle in the Super Bowl.

    Have a busy day so I'll catch a little of both games but won't see a whole game. Hate that, but have no choice.

    Seattle would be so bad in Giants Stadium though. Ditto for Manning. I think NE v. SF gives us the best opportunity for a great game.

    Because Harbough et al are all whiny little bitches. As tough as Frank Gore is - one of the few players on that team I respect, the top of the org is a blight on football.

    Can't you say the same for SF

    At the end of the day, I think broncos and seahawk would provide for the best game out of the teams left

    Aside from Harbaugh, are the Niners that unlikable?

    About toughness, so many of the players are tough. Aside from Gore, there's Willis, Bowman, Brooks, Justin Smith. All tough SOBs.

    I don't buy that Niners are whinier than any other bunch, it's just because a perception because of a stupid rhyme.

    Tom Brady whines all the time too. It's more Harbaugh and his over the top outbursts. The players themselves seem to just go out especially the defense. Only exception are the WR's. Everyone know's all WR's whine and complain all the time.

    Andre Johnson doesn't whine, and he's the best in the business. Same can be said for former great Marvin Harrison.
