McNair beats his old team
I don’t know why I am asked the question in mid-season that will take another two months to play out. The question? If Super Bowl XLI (41) were played next weekend who would be in it? Does that sound like a trick question?
All these teams entered the second half of their season on Sunday (except Tampa Bay and Carolina which play Monday night). And you have some 7-2’s, 6-3’s and even some 5-4’s who are more than hopeful. Actually, some of those performing less than well at this juncture are thinking, “we will prevail.”
If you asked me who, or which, is the strongest division today, I would have to say the American West. Those of you who are thinking that I picked that division because that is the one which houses the Kansas City Chiefs, you would be totally wrong. Denver and San Diego seem to always have that “hunger” which stands them in great stead at clutch time.
The Indianapolis Colts continue to make statements all over the place. Their latest exploit was becoming the first team in NFL history to start back-to-back seasons with 9-0 records. It wasn’t all that pretty, the 17-16 win over Buffalo, but who wouldn’t take it. Manning and the Colts just don’t have stiff competition in the South.
The Chicago Bears are resembling the Bears of Mike Ditka days. They dropped the one game to Miami but still have a formidable lead in the National North with a record of 8-1.
So, it would seem apparent if the Super Bowl took place next week it would be the North (division, National) against the South (division, American).
What about the Air McNair coup de grace on Sunday? Took the Baltimore Ravens back to his old team (Titans) and punched them in the eye. That will teach Tennessee to not re-hire him!
