Admit it. You want the Patriots.

You're more scared of the Patriots than you are of the Texans, but you want them anyway.
I know you.

An AFC Championship game rematch in Gillette stadium. Last year we barely beat you and a lot of what that Patriots team in 2011 had it had to leave in that game to escape with the victory. We went into the Superbowl wounded for having played the Ravens in the AFCCG.

If you win, there's that.

And if you lose, can you honestly say there is another offensive player in the league more fitting to play opposite Ray Lewis his last game than Tom Brady?

Congratulations on your win against Baltimore. I knew Baltimore would win, and I didn't doubt Flacco when everyone else in my living room left thinking it was over.

Now, if Tom Brady can defeat Houston, Tom Brady will surpass Joe Montana for most wins by a quarterback in post season history.

He'll now (hopefully) do it on the same weekend Peyton Manning tied those with the `record` for most post season losses.

Thank you, Baltimore.

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]I do! I do![/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]Like I said in my PM to you, we are a team of destiny this year. Beating that team from Indianapolis for the first time in 10-years... beating Manning for the first time in 10-years...[/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]...now, to get revenge for that AFCCG last year.[/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]After that, it don't matter who we play![/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]Your boys better bring their A-game tomorrow![/font][/i]

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]Really want to see an Indy fan in a Brady jersey. *LOL*[/font][/i]

I can't lie, if I were to be going for the perfect story book season, then heck yea I'll want the Patriots. You are right about you guys being banged up after playing us, if Gronk was healthy the Pats win that Superbowl. Can't argue with that.

Of course I do - I know I'm eventually going to get negged for quoting this for the next week if the Pats win, but "I want restitution!"

I'd rather our defense try to stop Brady than our offense to go up against the Texans. We don't have the corners to cover Andre Johnson.

I've heard that Houston's nicer this time of year and the tickets would probably be cheaper. That, and the Patriots are better than the Texans.

I've also been looking at Houston hotel prices and they seem pretty reasonable. I'll be honest, I'd rather have a nice little weekend break in Houston than in New England...

I don't care who we play, but I DO want Tom Brady out of the playoffs. I definitely wouldn't enjoy helping send the Patriots to the Super Bowl yet again. The benefit of playing the Pats, though, would be beating them. That is, to extend a tour of taking down the best quarterbacks and franchises the game has to offer.

I think this is more of what the Patriots fans want than what we want. You wanted us to knock Denver off. Aside from your fanbase getting the home game, you wanted us as a matchup. Your fanbase doesn't really believe in our team, and for some reason you have this complex about Peyton Manning and can't stand him winning.

I'm shocked to say this, but I agree with everything said by a fan of the (soon to be) opposing team.
I want New England. I do think New England has a better shot to beat us than Houston, but I want them anyway. With everything being "Ray's last..." nobody cares about the last time he plays Matt Schaub. We got Lewis vs Manning one last time. Now, we need Lewis vs Brady one last time, and the stage can't be bigger than for the right to go to the Super Bowl.

I'd be lying if I were to tell you I don't want the Patriots to win tomorrow, I still want revenge.

+ I'm scared to death of Foster and Houston's play action.

I think New England is better than Houston but I think Houston is a bad match up for us. But yes truly I want revenge for that terrible loss a year ago more than anything else.

IF Flacco goes through Manning and Brady in the same postseason, that alone propels him into top 5 status.
There is not elite QB remaining in the NFC......

I would love to face the Pats in the AFCCG. I feel like this team is supposed to go all the way this year, and revenge would make it even sweeter.

I admit it and I have no shame doing so. I want New England. It would be the perfect story but I also think we match up better against New England than we do against Houston. New England has a weak secondary, a questionable run game, and we always seem to come out and play our very best against the Patriots. Flacco has outplayed Brady two times in a row and with the momentum he's been gaining over the last two weeks I see that trend continuing. Our team is just more familiar with them, and I feel that we have a better chance of beating them.

Houston's run game and play action scare me and we would be right in our element getting revenge on the Patriots from denying us Super Bowl glory last year.

Bring on the Patriots.

That's actually very intriguing.

Part of me wants the Texans, because I believe their beatdown they gave us was a fluke, and that we should be able to go to Houston and win. To me, Houston is the 'easier' path.

But mainly, I want New England. We all know what a challenge beating that team in Foxboro is, but our games are ALWAYS great ones that come down to the wire.

And I completely agree with the points that you mentioned.

Either we get revenge for our loss last year, or there is poetic justice in watching Ray Lewis match wits with Tom Brady in a last stand.

Love it, now let's do this!
