Im backing the Giants. For 3 reasons:

1: Lawrence Tynes is Scottish

2: There playing a team with England in the name (ooooooooh controversal)

3: Pierre-Paul is a boss!

Who you guys going for and why?

2. Tynes is Scottish

3. The Pats have England in their name! :-)

One thing I've learned over the years is that no matter how hard you try, once you start watching the game...you can't remain a neutral.

I'm going into the game as a neutral...sometime, somehow...the game will dictate to me who I want to win. Right now, I have no idea.

I'm backing the Pats (dirty though it makes me feel).

As an Eagles fan I'd rather see Brady get another ring than see Eli get one.

With Peyton and the whole family in Indy I hope to be seeing plenty 'Manning faces' on Sunday

I said I really wasn't swayed either way last year, wasn't too bothered, but ended up leaning towards the Pack as kick-off loomed. I must admit to having a slight preference for the team capable of exploiting the other more and playing up to those advantages. As such, I like what Cruz can do, with and without possession of the ball himself out of the slot (mainly). He has impressed me no end and that pass rush does look like a thing of beauty when they get it spot-on.

I am leaning towards the NFC team - The Giants.

New York is a nicer town than Boston( barely as both are crapholes) so it has to be NY.

OMG I usually agree with you but this time im totally against you!

Boston has culture, great transport, nice people and room to breathe.

New York is tacky and over crowded.

Im biased i love the city of Boston!

I'm definitely gunning for the Patriots.

I know a couple of people from Boston who support the Pats and my fave band (Dropkick Murphy's) are from Boston too.

But to be honest I think it's a great match up and I just hope it'll be a nail biter close game decided in the final minute or something.

Really can't wait.

The Giants because i love New York
The Giants because i really dont want to see the next 10 years dominated by a Brady/Montana debate
The Giants because the Pats had a great old school uniform which they dumped for that crap they wear now
