Probably the Raiders. BUT, if the Titans keep it close I think they'll find a way to win. I'll take McNair over Gannon any day of the week in a clutch situation. McNair knows what it takes to get to the Super Bowl, having been there once already. MVP Gannon, on the other hand, has a history of choking in the playoffs.

The Titans led the league in ball control going into the playoffs, though they didn't demonstrate that in their win over Pittsburgh. If the Titans control the ball and don't have any turnovers, I think they'll win. If they play half as sloppy as they did against Pittsburgh, I think the Raiders will win by 14.

Raiders. I think they will use last year to motivate them. Plus, they were my preseason AFC rep for the big one, so i will stick with them.

um...when? are you counting a late hit by a 300+ lb. lineman when he was down already that knocked him out of the game? or a stupid tuck rule that took away an obvious win? or maybe you were having a dream about a game like this where gannon choked.

Yeah, Gannon has never chocked in the playoffs. He got cheap shotted by fat ass Siragusa (sp?) and threw the ball as well as can be expected in a friggin blizzard.

As for this game, Raiders 34 Titans 21.

Of course the raiders will win. I believe once we beat the titans the superbowl should be already considered ours. plus whos gonna cover brown , rice and porter on the titans secondary? Samari roll? He's overrated.

I pick gotta pick my Titans.

If they don't have any turnovers they win the game, period. I bet Gannon has at least 2 picks, since they're so pass-oriented, and Mcnair will know what to do with them.

I also think George out rushes garner, who I thought was overrated at the Niners, and even more so a year later, on the Raiders. They should use Wheatley. (Will be the 1st to admit George is overrated as well, but I believe he's the better back)

I'm just hoping for a competitive game, and one that comes to conclusion without a bad call, or a fluke play happening like other games as of late.

Titans 27 Oakland 24

Wheatley better than Garner??? WTF?

I have always been very impressed with Charlie Garner, dating back to his days in Philly. His biggest problems in the past was the injury bug. He seems to have licked that one.

Beats the hell out of me.. Wheatley goes down too easy, despite his size, and Garner is smaller and quicker. Garner can play both position, RB and receiver.

I thought he did a great job before garner came on. When I think of garner I just think of Fred Taylor, lots of injuries.

Doesn't really matter what I think though, it'll all be settled Sunday.

When I think of Wheatley, I think of a slightly better version of Ron Dayne.

Titans.

Charlie Garner will remember his playing days at Univ. of Tennessee so fondly that he will give us the game.

31-27.
