We have our first Super Bowl contestant: the New England Patriots, who make it to the big dance for the 5th time in 10 seasons. Now we get to find out who will lift the George Halas trophy and go to Indianapolis to play the Pats. Will the New York Giants beat the San Francisco 49ers? Can Eli Manning find Cruz and Nicks against that tough as nails 49ers defense? Can Alex Smith step up with some heroics again?

Talk about the game, the Bucs, the playoffs, the draft, the coaching search and whatever else here.
