All right, the regular season is done, so let’s see who can pick the Super Bowl a month ahead of time.
In year 1, it was Trillionaire who beat the pack.
Year 2, Uncommon Sense schooled the rest of us.
And last year, it was Airman Doors, USAF who walked away with all the marbles.
This year, I’ll once again be throwing caution to the wind and picking with my heart instead of my head: Giants over the Chargers, 38-23.
As always, just in case you don’t follow football but still wanna play along, just pick an AFC team, an NFC team, and a couple of numbers that sound vaguely football-scorish.
San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, N.Y. Jets, Kansas City Chiefs
Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, N.Y. Giants
Ravens beat the Cowboys 24-10.
I’ll go completely crazy: **Giants ** over Jets with **Giants winning 24-20 **
SDI Chargers 24, CHI Bears 0.
That would really make my Super Bowl a happy one, but I am going to err on the side of caution.
NOLA Saints 24, NY Jets 21.
(From the blind eyes of a lifelong Eagles fan):
**My Glorious New Oleans Saints ** 31
The Dogass Baltimore Ravenbiotches27
And of freaking course, I’d have a typo in my last post. Naturally. Just had to be.
Patriots 32, Seahawks 24.
Hmmm. My sentiments go with Eagles over Chargers 31-14. I grew up in Philadelphia and I’ve been suffering ever since Jaws and Co. lost to Oakland/LA. I have been a fan of Garcia since he was here with SF.
But my head rules, and my head says Chargers over Saints 38-7. Sorry Saints fans, but that’s the way I see it. Chargers are the hottest team in AFC now (which ain’t saying much), while Saints are strongest/hottest team in NFC. I can’t pick Cowboys, Giants, or Seahawks; they’ve all been in a profound slump for the past month. It’s harder to pick who’s hot in the NFC, but I haven’t been impressed with Chicago as much as I have with the Saints.
On the AFC side, I have to go with the Chargers; they’re on a roll and very strong. One can only hope that we get a reasonably interesting Superbowl out of it.
BTW, watch out for the Niners next year. They finished with some impressive wins. Smith is looking better and better all the time, and lost in the rest of the hoopla is the fact that Gore led the NFC in rushing, the first time that any Niner has lead the conference in rushing.
New England Patriots 26, New Orleans Saints 17.
(I was tempted to predict that the Patriots would beat the Bears 46-10 in a bit of delicious irony, but I refrained.)
At the beginning of the season, I would have had a hard time believing this would be my pick, but here it is…
San Diego Chargers 21
Chicago Bears 9
I wouldn’t even know how to begin to figure out the final score, so I’ll just say the Ravens over the Eagles.
