The most coveted trophy in the NFL: The Lombardi Trophy.
When I was a kid, all of us that lived on or around Linda Drive would play football in my backyard. We would pretend we were the Steelers (both teams actually, because none of us wanted to play for any team other than the Steelers).
When one team won, it became the Super Bowl Champion!
As great as the other awards are, none can even compare to the Lombardi. Conference champion, MVP and Offensive/Defensive Player of the Year all pale in comparison to Super Bowl Champion.
It is the single goal that all 32 NFL teams start with at the beginning of every season. Thirty-one teams fail. One team becomes the Super Bowl Champion, just like those kids in the backyard.
Here are my predictions for the NFL Wild Card round.
