Conference Championships

Congratulations to Eli Manning for getting the piano off his back. It took a Super Bowl win for Steve Young to get the weight of Joe Montana's multiple rings off his back, but Eli got Peyton's weight off, just by taking the Giants further than the Colts this year. A Super Bowl win will have to be in Eli's future, but for now, a conference championship appearance is satisfactory--which is why the New York Football Giants will surely lose this weekend in Green Bay.

On the AFC side, the Patriots have been anointed since September and there ain't no way the Chargers are going to slay this dragon. Tom Brady's bunch are a far superior team even if San Diego was at full strength and at this point Phillip Rivers and Antonio Gates are out with injuries. It was great to see Norv Turner take an impossible situation and succeed, but the joyride ends Sunday night.
