Defense wins championship!!!That said, you've got to score as well. I think the edge goes to New England since they've got good balance on both sides of the ball. Manning is hot and I'd love to see him win the Super Bowl so that 's the way my hearts rooting, but my head doesn't see it happening. To bad for Manning and the Colts that their defense can't match their offense. If it could, they'd be hard to beat regardless of the opponent.
As to the NFC, I think the Eagles have the edge because they have the potential to score, although their offense is hot and cold. Both of these teams play good defense. I think Carolina has been playing over their head recently and that typically has a way evening itself out over time.
At this point I'm just hoping for a competitive Super Bowl. If the AFC teams offense is shakey I expect a good Super Bowl. If it's clicking, then I expect the AFC rep will win easily.
