2009 UCF Wildcard Weekend

Last week I introduced the end-of-2009 NFL season United Countries of Football map.

Tonight, after an exciting overtime win by the Cardinals, the Wild-Card round of the playoffs have ended. Four Football Nations have been vanquished: Cincinnati, Philadelphia, New England and Green Bay. The new map stands at this:

Aside from my disappointment at the Bengal's loss and the Cowboy's win, I did pick 3 out of 4 correctly. However, I have a problem with the map. Once again I used poor color choices and now the Minnesota Vikings' and the Baltimore Ravens' territory is colored with the same shade of violet!

Therefore, next weekend, I will find myself rooting for the Vikings over the Dallas Cowboys (I would anyway), and I will naturally be rooting for the Indianapolis Colts over the Ravens. Then all things will be map-color-well.

I think we're going to see a blue and gold map for the Super Bowl. (Colts, Saints)

I was especially hoping for that back when they might have gone undefeated...

And while I think that would be a great combination for the SB, I would not rule out the hot Chargers, and the hated Cowboys.

Frankly, I could see any team going all the way except maybe the Jets, but even their defense could be strong enough to carry them.

Agreed. None of these teams winning it all would surprise me. None of them are so flawless that we can assume they've got a lock.

As an Eagles fan that is the most DISGUSTING map I have ever seen. Can't wait until my region turns purple next week!
