As part of the new partnership between Yahoo! and NBC Sports, we're pleased to present a new feature -- "Snap Decisions: 6 in :60 with Rodney Harrison." In the premiere, Harrison, who played safety for 15 years with the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots, discusses six hot topics on the NFL slate.

If the 49ers and Patriots meet in the Super Bowl, who wins? "I would say the Patriots, because of their ability to make adjustments in the game, at halftime, and the second time around. They went to the Super Bowl last year, so a lot of their young players got to play in the Super Bowl, and that experience is huge."

Which rookie quarterback will win more playoff games: Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, or RG3? "I would have to say Russell Wilson, and a lot of people would probably disagree with me on that, but Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks have the most complete team. Their ability to run the football, and great defense, which really helps out a young quarterback."

If the Chicago Bears miss the playoffs, should Lovie Smith be fired? "Yes -- I believe that Lovie Smith should be fired if the Bears miss the playoffs. Simply because, if you want to win your division, you have to beat the Green Bay Packers, and he hasn't been able to [do that]. In his nine years with the Bears, he's only made the playoffs three times."

Who is the NFL's Most Valuable Player: Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, or Adrian Peterson? "I had an argument with Tony Dungy about who should be the MVP, and he thinks it should be a quarterback. I completely disagree with that. I believe that Adrian Peterson has been the most dominant football player on the planet. Each and every week, he's facing eight and nine [defenders] in the box. Everyone knows that he's going to get the ball, they're loading up to stop him, and he has been fantastic."

Are the Falcons really that good, or did the Giants just play that badly? "Atlanta's a good football team, but they're not great. I still have my doubts with Atlanta across the board, especially on the defensive side of the ball. We know that each and every year, the New York Giants do the same thing. Last year at this point in time, they were 7-7, and now, they're 8-6. I believe that if the Giants get in, people will have to fear them as a legitimate threat to win the Super Bowl."

Who gets the sixth seed in the AFC? "I would have to say the Pittsburgh Steelers, even though they played poorly [against the Dallas Cowboys], I still believe they're better than Cincinnati."

Stay tuned for more great content from this new partnership!
