These NFL playoffs are a hater's dream!

The first week was easy. The best thing to hate were the games themselves, as teams were blown out and Roger Goodell's plans to expand the playoffs looked more and more laughable.

In the divisional round, the games weren't just watchable; they were phenomenal and gave plenty of hate ammo for the losers. (Fire Dom Capers! Fire Gary Kubiak! Fire everybody!!!!!!!!)

This week might be the best weekend of football that we have seen in a while, and it might be the best weekend of hate. Every team has a reason to legitimately wish for their season's demise. Whether it's the crotchety old men who dismiss San Francisco's offense as gimmicky or the idiots who can't talk about the Baltimore Ravens without bringing up a night in Ray Lewis' life from years ago, every team has just as many people rooting against them as they do rooting for them. 

You know me though; I hate all of them—at least, that's what y'all tell me the minute I'm critical of any team—so I want them all to lose.

How is that possible? It's not, but a boy can dream, right?
