Can't lose


This year, the NFL is lucky enough to be in a win-win scenario in terms of what kind of Super Bowl matchup they will have after this weekend's championship games. Let's examine:

Colts- Saints: Everyone wanted this from the beginning of the year. This would pit the two best teams in football against each other, and would guarantee a lot of excitement and points scored for the casual football fan.

Colts- Vikings: BRETT FAVRE, BRETT FAVRE, BRETT FAVRE....PEYTON MANNING, PEYTON MANNING, PEYTON MANNING. Two Hall-of-Fame quarterbacks, the two most popular quarterbacks in the league, and the winner gets their second Super Bowl ring. Who's not on board with that? Did I mention, Brett Favre might or might not retire after this season?

Jets- Saints: Two punished teams and fan bases, with one finally get over the hump (this also works for a Jets-Vikings match-up). This would also be a rematch of a closer than what the scoreboard indicated regular season matchup, in which the Saints won 24-10.

Jets- Vikings: Favre's old team vs. his new team. Oddly enough, the Green Bay Packers aren't involved in that sentence.

Win-win for everyone!
