I thought I would squeeze this post in before the playoff games today. First I would like to thank AsBlackAsObama for his Commitment to Excellence post on the Raiders. He is my first guest writer that I don't know personally. It was a very well written post and I hope to have him back soon.
It seems like we might make some history in this year's Super Bowl. There are a few scenarios that could take place. The Jets haven't been to a Super Bowl since 1969 and haven't played in an AFC Championship game since they lost to the Broncos in 1998.
The Vikings are 0-4 in the Super Bowl back in the 1970's, their last appearance was in '77 when they were defeated by the Raiders. They only have a total of 34 points in all of their Super Bowl games. Also if Favre can get them there and win, that will probably be another record that he breaks.
Now the New Orleans Saints have never made it to the big game. I would like to see the Saints win the Super Bowl, they deserve it. They haven't been that great of a franchise and need a victory. I picked the Chargers and Saints in the Super Bowl, I might get to be half right.
There are currently only 5 NFL teams that have never appeared in a Super Bowl: New Orleans Saints, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions. The Texans have been around the shortest amount of time so they get a break but the Lions and Browns have sucked for a long time. What sucks for the Browns is that when they moved to Baltimore, the Ravens made the Super Bowl but not as the Browns so I'm not counting it.
I could care less if the Colts make it and win. The only thing significant is the rematch between them and the Jets, both this season and of Super Bowl III. Both Championship games should be very close and hard hitting. I love football!!
