NFL Championship Weekend Live Thread

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

It's Championship Weekend, folks.

This should be one of the most exciting weekends of pro football we've seen in a long time. Brady vs. Manning is ALWAYS a treat, those are games you never want to miss because we'll be talking about those for years to come. On the other hand, we have what maybe the NFL's best budding rivalry in the Seahawks and 49ers. CenturyLink Field should be ELECTRIC, so be sure to keep an eye on that game. ALSO....

We have two former Tigers who want another shot at the Lombardi Trophy. Justin Smith has done everything a player can possibly do to deserve a championship, and now his team is in position to give him a second chance at it. A quiet yet dominant force on the defensive line, you can be sure Russell Wilson isn't excited about the prospect of having GODZILLA line up opposite of him.

On the other hand, we have Aldon Smith. Plagued by legal trouble and personal demons this last season, he has seemingly begun to piece his life back together and has earned the right to continue lining up beside his teammates. Aldon is still the pass rushing monster we've seen him be throughout his entire career, so let's hope he's saved his best for the Seahawks today.
