Defending Champs Are Done!

It's official—the New York Giants are out of the playoffs.

The Philadelphia Eagles were just too strong for the defending champs. A great game from Donovan McNabb was the key to a victory and he did not disappoint. Even though the Eagles took down the Giants, I wouldn't call them contenders. No disrespect to the Eagles but there are still better teams out there.

At this point I would say that the winner of the ChargersSteelers game would be the strongest team out there. The Eagles will have a chance as long as they have a few things: a good defense, a good running game, and consistency from Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook.

So now with the defending champs out, the title of Super Bowl champs is up for grabs. I personally am cheering for the San Diego Chargers as they are my favorite team. Super Bowl 43 is going to be a good one!
