NFL Conference Championships: 'Open Thread'

The Green Bay Packers go on the road for the third time in the playoffs to try to win from the 6th seed over the Chicago Bears at chilly Soldier Field. Can Aaron Rodgers complete the road trifecta and beat their NFC North division rivals, with whom they split in their two meetings in the regular season?

The New York Jets will attempt to do the same thing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in ugly Heinz Field. In their lone meeting at the same venue, the Jets surprised the Steelers, who were without disruptive safety Troy Polamalu. Troy is playing today and Steelers fans are trying to come up with a rhyme for their 7th Super Bowl ring.

Join us this afternoon and evening for this 'Open Thread' to post your comments on the games as they unfold and the Super Bowl match-up becomes clear. Please try to temper your frustration and keep it (reltively) clean and appropriate. Fat chance!
