Ok, so the Bengals are out. However, NFL football is still going on and like us, most of you will be watching.
Who do you root for?
Personally I am torn. Part of me wants to root for the Ravens. My reasoning is that they are a division opponent and whats good for the division is good for the Bengals. The Bengals will get to play them twice next season and it would be nice to beat a super bowl team twice next year. I do not want to root for Ray Lewis. I am just tired of this guy, and will be happy when he retires.
I only would root for the Pats for a couple reasons. My wife’s uncle is a huge fan and if they win it means the Ravens lose. However, I am as tired of this team as I am of Ray Lewis. Probably jealousy, but it is what it is.
On the NFC side there is more interesting story lines.
Atlanta. I like Tony Gonzales, a lot. After 16 years in the league he has finally won a playoff game. He is one of the great tight ends and a ring could not go to someone more deserving.
San Fran. I like Colin Kaepernick. This is a QB I was high on for the Bengals when he was in the draft and I really like the way he plays. A mobile guy with a strong arm, he is fun to watch.
If you are in a place where you could make a wager, think about a parlay bet and pick the winner of both games. It may turn watching teams that you don’t care about into teams you do care about.
