    Cheer for Dallas? Almost never, but I think that the Eagles have a better chance of beating Dallas than SF.

    SF doesn't look good on O

    I want Dallas to win.

    I always say they are my NFC team. But the truth is I feel nothing when they lose. It's only the Pats for me, and Brady by extension.

    But if Dallas wins, it'll be fun around town. Their big losses also provide sports radio entertainment

    After the Pats are out its just money for me, zero emotions for any of these teams otherwise

    Sure it would be fine to see Cincy or Buffalo win their first but that's on them

    Maybe reality is coming for that kid quarterback.

    In the mean time the Dallas kicker is the pits.

    I know the felling back in the 80's and 90's Mario Lemieux was the reason (Wayne Gretzky was in his prime but for some reason I just never watched him much) I loved hockey and always took for Pittsburgh so far they always have great superstars but one day it will not be the case. I branch out to other teams like now Edmonton with McDavid so that way if one team falls to the floor I have love for the sport anyway. And I don't even live in either city. My cities hockey team sucks but I still listen in.

    Getting over the Brady years will take a long long time maybe lock into another team till then it helps.

    Well oh well, we have quite a battle going on here don't we, both of us, in our underwear, exchanging shots in the middle of the ring. May the best man win!

    ...
    I want to take this moment to say something. Living in Cowboys country, I've followed the career of Brett Maher. He has one of those good stories. Journeyman. CFL. Back to the NFL. He was with the Cowboys a few years ago, then he was back this year. He obviously really worked hard, because he had his best season ever this year and would have made sense as a Pro Bowler.

    But he's had some bad misses through the years, like all kickers,maybe more so (even before the Tampa game). His reputation in the Dallas locker room is spotless as a guy who sits at his locker and answers every single reporter's question.

    Anecdotally, I heard that after the Tampa game, there were multiple lines of reporters waiting to inquire about his recently acquired infamy. He answered every question, on brand. Just my two cents.

    I'm sticking with my Pats. I was suffering with them for years before Brady showed up.

    Great game, but let this be a lesson, you cannot defeat me, for I am Batman!

    A lot of people don’t realize that the Patriots had a lot of lean years before the Brady era. There were frustrating years too like when Bill Parcells coached them to the Super Bowl and then let it slip that he was resigning before the big game. It let all of the air out of the big event, and the Patriots got creamed.

    Kickers don’t get much notice unless they hit one from 50+ yards out, or when they make an “ice water in the veins walk off, high pressure” kicks.

    When they miss PATs, they are going to get negative reviews. The PATs are now “semi-automatic” kicks after the league moved the line back to the 15 yard line. When you missed those kicks, you will get the fans’ ire. When you miss three in a row in a championship game, there will be a huge blow back. It does not matter how great a guy you are. If you can’t do the “routine job,” you will get a blow back.

    And yea, I don’t like the Cowboys so missing those kicks was fine by me. ;)
