The Jets are the Team of Destiny.

That was in Joe Willie's day. As for this season, they've won their last game.

I have to go with the homer Colts vote. The only team left that scares me is the Saints.

Caldwell took a lot of heat, but his move could end up looking brilliant. Let the Jets in to do your dirty work (beat the Chargers), then show them the door.

Random useless fact: last time the Super Bowl was in Miami the Colts won.

I pick the Vikes because I'm a fan but once they do make the Super Bowl, I'll be concerned because it's on natural turf. As for this week, I'd take those points they're giving.

This is my first poll, suppose I could have assigned the proper colors.

I'm thinking it's more like a Cinderella story. I go with the Jets too.

I'm hoping the Jets continue the trend that the Giants and Steelers have started.. So far it's a mirror image..

The schedule has Favre as a lock to win it all. Maybe he'll finally retire for good...same as with Elway in '97. The Vikes will finally have something to dust in the trophy case they built in 1961.

Football is much more fun when underdog teams like the Jets, Giants and Steelers go all the way. It does remind all the idiot NFL 'experts' that you do have to play the games.

experts ...like Mr Roto (Matthew Berry)? Adjust your FF lineup using his advice and you're sure to tank.

Colts seem to have the smell of destiny on them. Unless I'm mistaking that for the stink of fear.

These Jets fans don't truly believe their team is going to win. They just can't be honest about it. They can't help it.

Whichever team has the most convicted thugs is usually the winner.
