So the championship games are upon us, and were down to the Giants-49ers, and the Ravens-Patriots!! Personally, I'd like to see a 49ers v Ravens Superbowl, mainly because the 49ers haven't been in one in a long time, but that probably won't happen. Tom Brady already gets a ton of publicity, if they win again, it will only get worse LOL. So I'm picking the 49ers and Patriots to be in the Super Bowl, and hopefully the 49ers can stop the Patriots!?!

On one hand I would like for 49ers to win - it's always nice to see a losing team (not this season obviously, but the previous ones) pull it off, but on the other hand, I really like the Giants, so the ideal Superbowl for me would be Ravens-Giants.

I think most people want a Ravens-49ers Superbowl because both teams haven't been there in quite some time.

I really think though, NYG have some serious momentum and will stop the 49ers. I also think Brady sent a message with the absolute dismantling of the Broncos (not that I would put too much weight into it).

I think we're going to see a rematch of the titans from 2008. This time, I think Brady wants to avenge his perfect season loss to Manning.

It's going to but a full on offensive war.

Putting my extreme bias aside, I agree with most of you above me and still think the Giants will be making the super bowl and ultimately win it all. The Giants essentially shut out the Falcons and realistically beat the Packers 37-6. Their D is unstoppable right now and Eli is doing exactly what he does in every playoff game: perform. Eli is IMO the top dog QB in the NFL in the playoffs (4th in the regular season with peyton not there) and consistently proves it. With their running game finally going at full force, there is no weak area on this team (besides maybe Tynes the kicker).

Yes, the 49er's have the best D in the NFL. Stylistically, I fear the 49er's more than than any team other than saints who are now gone (woo!)BUT, you could make an argument that at this point, the giants D could very well match the 49er's D. The 49er's will have no passing game. Smith has a 5 step drop back, hes slow, and the 49er's O-line on passing situations is average at best. The front guys on the g-men will force the 49er's to run all day if they cherish Smith's life. Thing is, the Giants are coming off their best run D performance of the season. Other than Rodgers breaking free a few times, the packers had nothing. Alex Smith is no where near as capable as Rodgers on the feet If Frank Gore can't get it going, I in no way shape or form expect the 49er's to break into double digits scoring. If Eli can put up at least 10 against this tough D which I'm confident they can, The Giants will the conference champions.

Ravens/Patriots is an interesting match up. A match up the Pats SHOULD win but considering the postseasons the pats have had the past few years, The Ravens winning is not out of the picture.

Whoever wins I'll be happy with. If the Ravens pull through, the Giants can redeem their terrible Superbowl loss against them a decade ago. If the Pats pull through, the Giants will have another chance to shame one of my least favorite teams in the NFL on the biggest stage

I'd prefer the Pats winning. They have the 31st ranked D in the NFL. Sounds good to me and Eli i'm sure

If we're talking about the better team for the Giants @ the Superbowl, you could make the same argument for the Ravens like you did for the 49ers. Even though the Pats defense isn't top notch, their offense is and it would be safer to face off with the Ravens seeing how they struggled offensively, because let's be honest, their offense had nothing to do with their win. Obviously, they have good defense, but if they go through San Francisco, they can do the same against the Ravens.

Definitely a good point. I honestly see the Giants beating either team but If they can take down the 49er's they shouldn't have an issue with the Ravens. The 49er's are in fact IMO a better version of the Ravens. Dealing with these types of teams comes down to focusing on three goals: stopping the run, not turning the ball over, and scoring just enough points on offense.

The Ravens were lucky that they got to play a team with such a crappy passing game in the Texans. I mean Arian Foster got over 100 yards and a TD, but Houston needed more than him on offense to beat the Ravens Defense.

Excellent analysis man

New York's D is very strong now with fresh talent, plus you have Manning whom can change the game in a blink of an eye.

The crazy thing about a rematch of 08 would be that the Pats would want this 'that much more' after a perfect season went down the drain. The eerie thing is the NYGs look very similar to the 08 team, right down to getting in the same way to the playoffs.

One thing is for sure, the Pats with Brady are a very scary team. Welker, Woodhead, Gronkowski, Green Elis... Brady gets it done and he can storm down the field in a split second.
