Twenty-three teams are still in contention for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans. How exciting. Even the Saints (5-8) have a shot.
Among those teams that don't have a shot are the Philadelphia Eagles, a team I picked to go to the Super Bowl; the Carolina Panthers, a team with future MVP Cam Newton; and the Oakland Raiders, a team that I get to watch every day in practice and follow on their sad travels.
Hey ... maybe now is a good, bitter time to hand out our Least Valuable Player award.
