    That's just...crazy to me! I'm sorry. I'm not attempting to attack anyone's opinions. I hate the Colts as much as anyone (probably more so because my best friend back in high school was a Colts fan), but when it comes to playoff implications and the Broncos' seeding, this week, I'm a Colts fan. It sucks. I hate it. And if they lose, then at least they lost, and it'll make the blow a lot easier. But for this week for my Denver Broncos, I have to want the Colts to win. Denver will not be a good team on the road if we're a wild card and have to play at least 2 away games to get to the Super Bowl.

      Ok, maybe I did read to far into it, It seemed to me, you were calling me an "alleged fan". So, let me ask you this, who do you dislike more, the Colts, or the Patriots? If the Broncos for whatever reason, can't win the superbowl this year, I'll vote for anyone EXCEPT the Colts. If the Patriots win this weekend, I'm happy the Colts lost. If the Colts win, I'm happy the Broncos are in the #2 seed, assuming they win vs Pittsburgh. Assuming all teams were 0-0, nobody would question who I wanted to win, theres still alot of football to be played, and anything can happen.

        I like the Patriots far more than the Colts, naturally, but only because I'm confident whenever we play the Patriots. Recent history indicates that we have the Patriots' number. In any other circumstance, I would want the Patriots to win.

        However, look at this imaginary scenario. Let's say the Broncos and Patriots had the exact same record heading into the last game of the season, but let's say the Patriots had the tie-breaker that would give them homefield advantage for the playoffs. Let's say the Broncos won their final game, and the Patriots were facing the Raiders in their final game. Would you still root for the Patriots just because you hate the Raiders, or would you put that aside for the benefit of the Broncos and want the Raiders to win? Naturally who we root for ultimately has no bearing on the outcome of the game. But would you really want to see the Patriots win at the cost of homefield adavantage throughout the playoffs?

          Absolutely, I'd vote for whomever would benefit the Broncos. But at this still fairly early stage of the season, I really believe the Patriots can win, and Denver can still have the #2 seed.

            Thanks for the research. I'm not sure who to cheer for in the Pats/Indy game. If the Colts win, Denvers back in the 2 seed, but I hate Manning and the Colts, and I actually like the Patriots. So........... GO PATRIOTS!!!!!

            Pats to lose every time....I don't care who they play. I'd even cheer the raiders on (unless it effected our standings.)

                  Right...clearly the Chargers are better.

                  How could we have been so foolish.
