There's only one game left in the 2007 NFL season, and while I can't believe anyone would be surprised that Tom Brady and his Patriots are back in the Super Bowl, how about those Giants? The New York Giants in the Super Bowl? How did that happen?

Well, everything comes down to fantasy, you know, and if the Giants making the February game doesn't prove to fantasy owners that all you need to do is qualify for the playoffs and then let nature take its course, then I don't know what does. Not that I'm jealous or anything. The Giants have played very good football this month. Congrats to them.

The past two Wednesdays I blogged about the quarterbacks and running backs in fantasy football, recapping the 2007 season, placing them into categories and then ranking the top-20 quarterbacks and top-30 running backs for 2008. I was planning on covering the wide receivers in this blog, but man, we just saw a pair of exciting conference championship games and I have thoughts about those events. And we have many months to cover the wide receivers (though I plan to do it next week).
