    I wanted to see who the board members would like to see make the playoffs in the AFC. At first I was just going to ask about wild card spots, but New England (and even Cincy) is not guaranteed a spot right now. So tell me who you want from the East, North and Wild Cards.

    My Wishes:

    North: Cinncy - 3rd seed - Might change my answer after Sunday, but I think this is a good matchup for the Bolts if we had to face them and I REALLY don't want to see Baltimore in, so go Bungles!

    East: New England - 4th seed - I hate them and I'd love to see them sit at home, but I feel we match up against them better than Miami and they would have to fall hard not to take at least a wild card spot. Also, I think they have the best chance of the playoff bunch to knock off Indy and give us a shot at a home AFC Championship game...

    WC#1: Denver - Similar to NE, I'd love to see them sitting at home, but I think we own them and would love to see a scenario of us playing them in the playoffs.

    WC#2: NY Jets - This is a bit of a stretch, but would be my ideal scenario. Well, I guess truly ideal would be the Jets winning the East and NE taking this spot but I'm adding a dash or realism here. More realistic would be Miami at 10-6 here.

    Ideal brackets? Both home teams win the wild cards games which sends Cincy to SD and NE to Indy. SD and NE win the division games and the AFC Championship is played here.

    So that is how I'd like to see it shake out. What do you want to see?

    I agree with above, I really don't care, we should beat any two teams we will have to face in the afc playoffs, so let the chips fall where they may. I just want the 2 seed.

    NE over Baltimore

    Div

    SD over Cinn (again)
    NE over Ind (not much fun beating Indy every year, well, a little fun :tup: )

    AFCCG
    SD over NE (payback)

    Phuck the NFL and ESPN. I want to see the AFC Champ game in SD, so here's to hoping the Colts get knocked off in the Divisional round.

    I'd love to see Miami win the AFC East (Phuck the Pats), and then the Jets and the Jaguars get the Wild Cards. Extreme longshot I know. But that would be great.

    Exactly!!! You know damn well that if Saints and Ponies go undefeated in the regular season... NFL is going to want a Saints/Ponies SuperBowl and will have the refs cheating again!!!
    I want to crash their party again and maybe see a few (accidental) helmet to head collisions!!!

    Though I would like to see the AFCC hosted at home too.

    Because if we want an accurate poll there needs to be a no preference option, that's why. I know this isn't a poll, but might as well have as many diffent views per thread as you can.

    Ideally we'd play denver and new england, two teams I'm confident we'd have no trouble with. But being without a crystal ball, no preference is any better than no pref.

    Don't be a dick, we're all friends here, sorta.

    What I don't understand is why someone would comment on posts they don't like merely for the sake of voicing their opinion :p

    Wish in one hand and spit in the other, let us know which one fills up first. It's doesn't matter who or where we play during the playoff's as long as we win. Get in the show then whip some hindparts. Winning is the name of the game in the one and done elimination bout's.

    My wishes is that the Chargers fall to Seed #4 as much as the only game I want them to lose is to Cincinnati this weekend and win the last two, I would love to see a Cincinnati vs San Diego AFC Championship game

    I love my Bengals, and the Chargers are like a close second team to me. I'm from Cali after all mainly Southern Cali, San Diego to be exact lol

    but since I know both Bengals and Chargers will likely end up in the middle seeds either one of them can end up in #2 at this point. while the Patriots can't seem to do better as of late. I'll have to settle with a Divisional round game between the two.

    as far as the rest goes

    AFC East - I would love to see the Patriots fall out of first place and Dolphins rise again. not sure that will happen but eh.

    AFC North - someone knock the Steelers and Ravens out of the playoff hunt already. although it would be awesome to win another game against either one this year lol

    AFC South - Colts with homefield advantage already we'll have to see if the Jags can make it

    AFC West - I want the donkeys to get into the playoffs :icon_twisted: if the Bengals get Seed #3 that is, if they get Seed #2 I don't care who enters as Wild Card broncos, Jags or Dolphins

    if The Bengals get the #2 Seed I would love to see this

    Bye: Colts, Bengals

    WC: Baltimore @ San Diego (Winner: San Diego) Payback is a *****
    WC: Miami @ New England (Winner: Miami) I doubt NE doesn't go into the playoffs as WC

    Division: Miami @ Indianapolis (Winner: Miami) (Colts probably would win)
    Division: San Diego @ Cincinnati (Winner: Cincinnati) again

    AFC Championship: Miami @ Cincinnati (Winner: Cincinnati)

    if The Bengals get the #3 Seed I would love to see this

    Bye: Colts Chargers

    WC: Denver @ Cincinnati (Winner: Cincinnati) Payback is a *****
    WC: Miami @ New England (Winner: Miami) I doubt NE doesn't go into the playoffs as WC

    Division: Miami @ Indianapolis (Winner: Miami) (Colts probably would win)
    Division: Cincinnati @ San Diego (Winner: Cincinnati) again Payback would be a ***** (assuming the only way the Bengals gets Seed #3 would be losing this sunday)

    AFC Championship: Miami @ Cincinnati (Winner: Cincinnati)

    I really want the Broncos in Division and then Colts in AFCC. We match up so well against the Colts. The only problem about the Colts is Dallas Clark is going to boof us if we face them.

    I cannot see NE beating Indy in too many situations. The way the NE secondary is playing (and their defense in general) they are going to get torched.

    What up Mr. D, welcome to the forum. Nice post.

    Before the tragic death of Chris Henry, there was no way in h*ll the Bengals would be able to keep up with the Chargers. I predicted a blow-out with the final scoring being 30-something to 13 or something.

    But with emotions riding high, I think the Bengals will give us a hard fought game. I still like the Chargers edging them out, but it'll be interesting to see a potential rematch in the playoffs.

    With that said, GO CHARGERS!!!

    I don't want to be a dick about it but it bugs me that someone post a hypothetical question (which is a good part of message boards) and someone else basically said "this thread is dumb" when saying they don't care about what you asked

    I hear ya, and suggesting this thread was dumb was not my intention. I wanted to be apart of it, but the fact remains, after rackin' my brain I really can't put together a playoff group that would "best suit" us.

    Hypothetically I'd love the path to least resistance, whatever that may be. The cocky side would like to play the toughest opponents possible, just to prove this team earned ( unlike the 06 colts who caught a very lucky bread not having to come to sd) and destroyed the best afc opponents out there to get a ring.

    I like the thread, the answer isn't simple imo, so I really can't answer it. So my choice is hit the ramdom button and let's get it on.

    I should have known to be posting differently from the start, since this entire forum revolves all around you.
