Am really curious to see what others here think would be the best result
Why we want Pittsburgh to win?
-Chicago's Draft pick - obvious really, nothing more to say.
-Laughing at Cutler - again obvious really.
Why we want Chicago to win?
-If we're serious about the playoffs (and given the state of the AFC West we should be) then we need the AFC big guns to lose at every opportunity (except to San Diego of course)in order to get that home field advantage.
What do you guys think? Who will you be "rooting for"? Is a loss for Pittsburgh better than a slightly better draft pick?
I was also curious about the Seymour trade. Technically we should of course be laughing at how Al Davis has once again debacled himself, giving away a 1st rounder for a player who while clearly at the top of his game, is also 30 and about to descend into the twilight of his career.
The problem is that the Pats won't throw away that 1st rounder, they will almost certainly pick up a great player (or in BB style trade down for a multitude of 2nd and 3rd rounders). As funny as it is seeing Oakland make a mess of things, ultimately a Denver Superbowl run will likely have to go through New England not Oakland. Furthermore you know Al Davis would almost certainly have blown that 1st rounder anyway had he kept it.
So I'd be curious for other's thoughts on this as well?
