    Another Bears fan here... I never felt that way when Favre was QB, but totally do with Arrogant Rodgers at the helm.

    49ers by 17 over GB
    KC by 6 over TN

    To me, that's GB's only chance. We need to see "he's a BAAAAD man" Rodgers--not the 'game manager' Rodgers we've seen most of this season. He needs to go off for them to have a prayer.

    Two good games. If Kittle is healthy - then SF, otherwise a toss-up.

    Andy Reid and Steve Spagnuolo are old hands and know how to game plan. Steve Spagnuolo stopped the undefeated Patriots, I think he'll come up with a way to stop (or limit) Henry.
    KC. Mahomes is just too good.

    Niners I think, and hope. Chiefs may prevail, but they have shown themselves to be vulnerable some. Not sure where that loyalty is, I always like the underdogs and Titans have come from nowhere....

    I don't even care who wins the SB at this point. I wanted to see the Patriots win a 7th SB, but that fell apart like the front fork falling off of a Harley doing a hundred miles an hour, just before it went off a cliff. I sort of do to the extent that I would like to see the 9ers win because of a friend of mine who has been a 9ers fan since long before they contracted Colin Cancer. Mahomes is always entertaining, but... can accidently...

    It’s a tough pick to say the least. Being a Philly fan, I kind of want to see Andy Reid get a SB ring. He’s been close so many times. On the other hand, I like the grittiness of the Titans.

    In the NFC, I’m an Aaron Rodgers fan so yeah, Green Bay for the win.

    Henry reminds me of Earl Campbell.

    I wouldn't put it past Rodgers to go nuts and pull an upset today.

    KC Chiefs vs GB Packer Super Bowl would be sweet!

    My old team the Raiders suffered their epic collapse years ago after the Super Bowl against Tampa Bay. The 30 years after that took the -atic out of my fan-ness. Now, though I casually pull for the Seahawks every year, and I'd still like to see the Raiders make a run, I don't really care who wins what, but I do like to see a good football game.

    These games today should both be good ones, but as far as picking the winners it's like crossing an elephant with a rhinoceros: elephino.

    As much as I'd like see Tenn take the game today, Miami fan here so go Tannehill, I'm not seeing it

    As far as GB vs SF I think SF has the better all around team

    So I'm picking KC vs SF for all the marbles

    I'm thinking Niners and would like to see the Titans upset the Chiefs.

    Chiefs vs either NFC is the more intriguing SB matchup, so to guarantee that I'm going to pick the Titans ; )

    However, there is a precedent of Andy Reid teams losing conference championship games at home so there is somewhat of a logical reason I'll go with the upset.

    Bottom line, even though I do think Mahomes is too good for even Reid to screw this one up I'll still say Titans.

    I'll flip a coin in the NFC and just say San Fran.

    I just hope both games are close and the poor and/or controversial officiating that we see all too often doesn't become the story.

    I think it will be KC vs SF, but I am rooting for Green Bay to make it as I would like to see Mahomes vs Rodgers matchup in the Super Bowl. The problem is 49ers are the most complete team. I also don't underestimate what Titans could do if they can control clock and keep the ball out of Patrick Mahomes hands. Tennessee seems more likely to upset KC than Packers taking out the 49ers. Derrick Henry has been phenomenal in the last 8-10 games plus the whole team has the "Why not us" aura around them. Vrabel has really worked some magic as Titans coach.

    After the Chiefs scored to make it 17-14 and the Titans went 3 n out I texted my buddy that TN will probably be down double digits by the time they possess the ball again. Looking that way at halftime.

    Stating the obvious but Mahomes is SO good.

    Any of the match ups will be a decent Super Bowl, it's nice to have NE eliminated. Making room for the Titans or Chiefs this year is a refreshing.

    I'm a Packer fan so I'd love to see them in it. They've already over surpassed expectations and are playing with house money.

    Prediction...Green Bay gets another Lombardi :D:)

    (probably be KC over SF in two weeks but I gotta be a fan)

    Deja Vu all over again. This time it's the Titans instead of the Texans. Mahomes is one talented young man. Still time for the Titans.
