First cheerleaderless Super Bowl ever? Save us Jaime Edmondson, you’re our only hope. Nothing brings on a softie faster than a match-up of fans prone to churning out poorly altered lyrics from classic rock songs.
Your Meast for the conference championship round is Sam Shields, who had two interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble in the Packers’ win in Chicago. The first came as the Bears were threatening to notch their first score before halftime and the latter clinched the game when Caleb Hanie tried to force the ball to Johnny Knox on 4th down on the Green Bay side of the field inside of a minute to go. Also receiving consideration was Rashard Mendenhall.
Your Least for the conference championship round is Todd Collins, who had to have been the worst prepared back-up in the history of football. Which is incredibly surprising for a quarterback who finished the regular season with no touchdowns, five interceptions and a passer rating of 5.9. But, hey, he did make dubious history in his triumphant win against Carolina. Also receiving consideration were Jay Cutler (not as much for the injury as overthrowing open receivers the entire first half), Caleb Hanie, every other Bears quarterback ever and Brian Schottenheimer.
