E. Manning Flacco Smith Brady I see one elite QB (Brady), one very good QB (Manning)and 2 so-so QB's that are playing in the AFC and NFC Championship games. Two of the teams have top 3 defenses (49ers and Raven), one has the 15th ranked defense (Pats) and the Giants have the 25th. The Ravens have the 15th ranked offense. The 49ers have the 11th ranked offense. The Giants have the 9th ranked offense. The Pats have the 3rd ranked offense. It seems that the Giants are the anomaly here being that they don't have BOTH an offense and defense ranked in the top half of the league. However, their defense sure as hell played like a top defense... 2008 Super Bowl anyone? I don't buy the "elite" QB and offense driven league crap. A well rounded team with a serviceable QB will get you far into the playoffs and it's better to have a dominate "D" with a serviceable QB than a dominate offense and a crap defense.
