In Response to Re: San Diego is the Team to Beat in AFC : I'm with you bro....Although NE may not be as dominant and impressive as the #1 and #2 seeds, why would we even be having this conversation. Until NE is eliminated I'm not counting them out. Also, alot of people are counting out Pittsburgh, a team that can beat both Indy and SD. I believe Pitt will get hot and win out and clinch a wild card. Hopefully they will play Cincy and then if all goes well NE and Pitt can play for the team of the decade in the AFC Championship. But as it was mentioned earlier. Indy is the team to beat at 14-0. Say what you want about them, but they beat everyone that was on thier schedule.

The Steelers may be on 'life-support', but they really don't deserve to be in the Playoffs, after losing to K.C, Oak. & Cleveland. But you showed alot of 'class' by saying you would like to see the Patriots meet up with the Steelers to set up the so-called 'Team of The Decade' game. San Diego is looking pretty good right now, and Indy & especially Peyton Manning, are going to tough for anyone to beat.
That being said, I think the Patriots are right there with San Diego & Indy. As for the 'Team of the Decade', the Patriots have been the measuring stick for all the other teams, all thru the decade. Not only 3 Superbowl wins, but an 18-1 Season that may have ended with a Superbowl loss, but still one of the best, if not best team of all-time. Top that off with the 11-5 season the Patriots fought tooth & nail for last season, with the loss of Brady and so many others to injury, and it's been a remarkable run for the Patriots. Indy has one Superbowl win, and some stellar teams this decade, and if they win it this year, I would put them second to the Patriots. San Diego has been the most baffling team, because I thought with the talent they've had, that they would have a few Superbowl's by now. As for the Steelers, the Seattle game was probably the most boring Superbowl of all-time! I was very disappointed in the way they played, compared to how they played earlier in the Playoffs. Last year, they just got hot at the right time. I think the Steelers best team of this decade might be this year, but instead of winning close games, they've lost a bunch of them. But when you have stupid penalties, and turn-overs in the 4th quarter of a close game, more than not you will end up losing the game. The playoffs will be fun to watch this year, because there have been so many close games, and we'll probably see a few more in the Playoffs! But I think, The Patriot's, The Colt's, or the Chargers, either one of these teams will defeat the NFC Champion (On A Neutral Field) and keep the trophy in the AFC!
