    10. So who looks good for the AFC championship game?

    A year removed from their disappointing finish to what had been a great run for most of the season, the Indianapolis Colts return everybody with the exception of running back Edgerrin James. That's a huge loss, no question. But James wasn't the breakaway threat he had been in previous years and Indianapolis thinks it has that threat now in rookie Joseph Addai.

    The key for the Colts is that they need to build early leads in playoff games to avoid exposing their undersized defense and putting undue pressure on their running game, which isn't exactly hearty. Is that possible? Over the past 10 years, teams such as St. Louis and Oakland have reached the Super Bowl with a similar strategy. The opportunity is there. Indy just needs to focus on the task at hand and do enough in the regular season to make sure it has home-field advantage again. Last year, Pittsburgh ruined the Colts' run, but they should be able to use that as a lesson, not as a reason for doubt.

    As for the team that will challenge Indianapolis for a shot at the Super Bowl, most people will go with the New England Patriots or Broncos as the obvious choices. But here's just a hunch that, only a year after Bill Cowher finally broke his Super Bowl jinx, good friend Marty Schottenheimer leads the Chargers to the AFC title game and gives the Colts all they can handle in a classic playoff game.

    Here is the rest of the story:

    Chargers vs Colts. It could happen, and maybe this time we'll be playing them on our home turf.
