How was a Cleveland fan supposed to watch these games? First you have the Steelers, sworn enemy of every good Clevelander. Cheap shot artists, thugs and criminals. Oh, and consistent winner. Don’t forget that. You know, kind of the opposite of us. And then there are the Ravens. Do I even have to go there? No matter what your opinion of Ray Lewis is, had he been wearing orange and brown he would have statues in this city. Ozzie Newsome as well. For his career on the field and in the front office. Instead, he is making smart picks for Baltimore. Sigh.
Then you have Braylon and the Jets. No way you can root for him. And the arrogance of that team makes me ill anyway. The Patriots? As much as I hated Belichik when he started winning in New England, that has nothing on my disgust of the New England/Boston fan-base.
Now we have a Steelers/Jets conference championship. Great. All I can say is that no matter who wins this one, I’ll be pulling for the NFC.
I’d especially like to see Aaron Rodgers get his title. A couple reasons for this. First, I like many am really done with Brett Favre. It would only be sweeter if Rodgers were to beat the Vikings in the NFC title game. I liked the kid coming out of college, and thought he got a raw deal for a couple years in Green Bay. Especially hearing how Brett treated him. Second, I would love for Colin Cowherd to have to eat a little crow. He’s been calling Rodgers a fake all season.
Above all, I would much rather see Rodgers, Clay Mathews Jr. and A.J. Hawk get rings than either Braylon Edwards or the Steelers. But that probably goes without saying.
So who are you rooting for?
