Early Super Bowl Pick Time!

Ok folks, the twelve playoff teams have been decided. Now it’s time to take your best guess as to who is going to Houston February 1st. We want the two Super Bowl teams, and the final score of the game.

As any Gregg Easterbrook fan will tell you, it’s very, very difficult to accurately predict the final score of a game, but that’s our challenge! Winner gets…errr… <quick origamizing> this genuine paper football, and…ummm… <quick peek under desk chair> this peanut that sorta resembles John Madden.

For my pick, I’m going Rams over the Patriots, 34-24.

P.S. 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.

AFC Teams
New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, Baltimore Ravens

NFC Teams
Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, Carolina Panthers, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers

Chiefs 27
Rams 19

Pats over the Rams, 31-13

The Brett Favre “For My Pops” tour rolls.

The Broncos are peaking at the right time of year. (Week 17 doesn’t count - Denver rested keys starters.)

A rematch of Super Bowl XXXII.

In a game for the ages its the first ever overtime in the SB.

Elam hits an amazing 57 yard field goal:

Denver 35
Green Bay 32

(OK, Ok this mostly what I want to happen. What I think will happen:
Pats 28
Eagles 17)

Colts 31, Rams 24

Up until this afternoon’s Motor City Meltdown I thought the Rams had a very good chance of getting revenge for the loss against New England in Super Bowl XXXVI. After their pathetic 2nd half performance however, I doubt they will be able to beat Green Bay at the Dome two weeks hence.

Super Bowl XXXVIII will be an old-fashioned Super-blowout Patriots 41, Eagles 10

Go with you **Flymaster **
But more Pats style : after overtime.


** Patriots
Combatriots ** - Heroes

Panthers 13… Pats 12.
On a last second 46 yd field goal by Kasey.

Sounds good to me. :slight_smile:

I going with a game between the Ravens (on the strength of Jamal Lewis) and the Philadelphia Eagles (just because I use them when I play my Madden '04 Franchise…anyone ever notice their jerseys resemble the Sasaktchewan Roughriders of the CFl in colour)

Final score -

Eagles - 24
Ravens - 31

Of course, Jamal Lewis will put up some pretty strong numbers.

Ravens 24
Eagles 17

(Sorry, Montfort.)

I’m going with the Chiefs -vs- Eagles. I think I’ll go against the trend and pick an Eagles win 24 to 10.

The real game will probably a blowout like 5 time champ predicted. The only thing I can be pretty certain about is that the Cowboys will be watching the game from home.


Care to put some money on that?

BTW, I’m sorry that Jamal didn’t get the record. That was a tough one, eh?

OK, I’m done laughing my ass off now. See you at the golf course next week, and enjoy your crappy draft pick.

Ravens 31
Packers 28

Rematch of the 2002 Super Bowl, only this time the Rams don’t choke.

Rams 31, Pats 17

Marc Bulger - Super Bowl MVP

I’ll go with:
Patriots 17
Panthers 6

Rams and Broncos runners up.
Chiefs, Eagles, Colts and Seahawks have no show.
Cowboys may surprise.

Well, we made our “early picks” back in August. These are more like early in the playoffs picks, which are much easier to make. In that one no one did great, but I have a good shot at having predicted the NFC title match correctly (as does Quack). VarlosZ was the only one that saw the Patriots coming.

Picking today I’d take the Patriots over the Eagles, although my Eagles over the Titans pick is still not a bad choice. Especially since it was made in August. It’s about the only thing I even got close on this year in picks, though.

It would definitely be a surprise. Coach Parcells is a very good coach, but he’s not a miracle worker. I think it’ll be a few years before we’re actually playing in a Superbowl.

I say the Packers will win it. Did you guys see how they got in the playoffs? I gotta go with Favre.


I’m actually a Niners fan, and have always hated the Packers, but always respected Favre. Now I’m rooting for him. What the hell is wrong with me?

I’m looking for a repeat to Super Bowl XXXI:

Green Bay 35
New England 21

Go Pack Go!!!

Oddly enough it looks like a pretty good chance this year with both teams riding into the play-offs with momentum.
