    I'm either going to see There Will Be Blood on Sunday, or I'm going to rent something to watch.

    I agree with your analogy BUT if the Gnats win a Super Bowl with Eli... tell that to the media!!!!!!
    HOW CAN YOU ARGUE AGAINST THEIR ANALOGY?!!!!

    Even if I wasn't a Chargers fan, I'd still root for the Patsies because I don't want the NFL to become "THE MANNING SPORT!!!"
    Imagine twice the Eli/Payton commercials.
    ALL NFL commercials being either Eli or Payton (when not combined).
    ESPN becoming "The Manning Channel."
    Archie becoming an NFL icon (even though he didn't do anything in his career.)
    Archie's sperm sold on ESPN.

    If the Patsies have their "prefect season"... it will be forgotten when/if someone else wins the Super Bowl in 08.
    Gnats win... Mannings invade NFL forever!!!

    Winning the game will mean nothing. Eli will be all over your TV now regardless of Sundays outcome.

    True, however it would be nice to see Junior get a ring....and besides, at least Eli won't have a ring. No matter who wins, there are pluses and minuses to it. It is all a matter of preference and what each individual considers the better of two evils.

    This is why I'm BOYCOTTING the super bowl
    Because I hate both teams with vehement passion and don't want either of them to win because neither of them deserve it

    I can never root for Elisha.

    Pats 42-10

    Manning= 5 ints.

    This would confirm that the NFC is inferior and the Chargers are the second best team in the NFL.

    Not really. Nobody cares about the Super Bowl loser.
    Yes, Eli will still be on TV when the 2008 season begins but if the Gnats win... the Mannings will own the NFL!!!!

    There is more reason to root for the Pats than the Giants. First of all, they are 18-0. No reason they shouldnt take apart the NFC weak Giants.

    They have 2 ex Chargers who we all like.

    Eli is not as good as Rivers and the only reason they are saying tehy got the better deal is because they are in the SB....from the weak NFC.

    Eli didnt do anyhitn to win that game but since he is their QB...he will get all the praise because his name is Manning. Had we won, Rivers still wouldnt get the props asside from saying he played a gutsy game.
    I am an AFC guy and have always rooted for the AFC team to win the SB.

    I dont really like either team but it will bother me more to hear them say the Giants got the better deal if they win this game.

    I hope they kill the Giants and Eli plays like crap.

    Is it bad of me to think, if the earth opened up an swallowed both teams, that would be ok?

    I think the win-loss record for rating a QB is not entirely accurate. Prime example, Dan Marino never won a Super Bowl. Trent Dilfer has.

    I think a QB who has a QB rating that is 13.2 points higher than another can be "really" considered the better of the two.
    Rivers: 86.6
    Eli: 73.4

    But that's just me. That article's stupid.

    Yep, and Archie Manning was a good quarterback who never even played in a playoff game.

    Probably the best winning QB ever to play the game was Otto Graham.

    Good point but that's not how the media sees it.

    The media didn't have a hard on for Trent like they did for Eli in the NFL draft. Despite of his performance... Eli is media material because of his last name, his father's involvement on draft day, and him refusing to play in San Diego.

    We HAVE to win a Super Bowl before Eli!!!

    I get pissed every time I think of having to choose one of these two teams...

    The lone bright spot is that the Giants would have picked before us in the draft, but since they are in the Super Bowl, they pick 31st.

    While I might not like the team, I always pull for the team that knocked us off. It shows just how close we were. I've never been an Eli fan, but he's been playing very good football the past month.
