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.
