I have consulted with the experts and bad news, you guys: The Skins aren’t gonna make the playoffs this year. So, as we did last year, here is a handy guide that should help you figure out your rooting interests during the postseason. They’re sorted from least to most likable.
Steelers. I would root for the Giants in a Pittsburgh-New York Super Bowl. This is how much a hate the Steelers.
Giants. The only good thing about another NFC East team in the playoffs is that it gives you a clear-cut rooting interest: Whoever they’re playing. Unless it’s the Steelers.
Patriots. At least Chad Ochocinco has given them a speck of rootability. I actively root against every other person on that team, and its entire we-were-here-all-along-we-swear fanbase.
Ravens. I’m not totally certain why I dislike the Ravens, but I think it’s probably out of jealousy.
Falcons. The vanilla ice cream of the 2012 playoffs. There is nothing interesting about this team, but also nothing to really root against.
