Super Bowl XLVI Prediction

Four years ago I picked the Giants to pull off the upset against the undefeated New England Patriots.

This time around I don’t think it’ll take one of the most exciting plays in Super Bowl history to do it but I think the Giants win again. I am almost cringing making this pick because if the Giants win there will be foolish people out there who will want to say that Eli is a better quarterback then Peyton. I just know this will happen. Whether it is callers (or even hosts on WFAN) or football fans in general, you just know there is a segment of the population that will say it. It really is a shame that Peyton Manning never got to play with a defense that was consistently as good as the one Brady (and Roethlisberger) got early in their careers.

Everyone (outside of Las Vegas) seems to be picking the Giants to win this time around and that scares me. It hasn’t been said much over the course of Tom Brady’s career but Eli Manning is the better quarterback right now. I think the Giants pass rush gets to Tom Brady again and forces a couple of turnovers. I have thought for two weeks that we’ll see Chad Ochocinco make an impact in this game. I still think that is the case. It would be typical Bill Belichick.

By the way, what is up with the Patriots releasing Tiquan Underwood on the night before the Super Bowl?

Chad Ochocinco wants to be your roommate

Do you live near Gillette Stadium and have an extra room (with internet and Xbox) that you want to rent out?

Chad Ochocinco said today that he will be living with a fan for the first couple of weeks of the season.

Love this little passage on ESPN.com from his comments to the media today.

“I’m going to do something different, I’m actually going to stay with a fan for the first two, three weeks of the season,” he said Tuesday. “That should be fun, until I get myself acclimated and learn my way around.”

Ochocinco hasn’t yet picked the fan.

“I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but they have to have Internet and have to have Xbox,” he said. “That’s about it.”

Asked if he was serious, Ochocinco said, “Have I ever lied to you before?”

Told there were some “crazy” fans, Ochocinco said, “I rode a bull.”

The same article also quotes him as saying that he doesn’t use a GPS and likes to get lost on purpose so he learn a new city.

“The way I learn a new city is by traveling out, adventuring out, getting lost on purpose, this past weekend, I was a little frustrated because I was lost for about an hour, an hour and 30 minutes, and I couldn’t get where I needed to. (But) that’s it. Boston, or actually heaven, has been good. A lot of people are not too fond of the Prius that I drive, which I find hard to believe. Other than that, the people have been great.”

Seriously, how can you not like this guy? He did mention that he will be tweeting less because that is how the Patriots want it.

Congrats Giants Fans

Congrats to all Giants fans out there. To everyone who’s been critical of Eli all year…..I told you so! What a game. Great to see the Pats go down. Eli was brilliant on the final drive. That pass to Tyree…..what can I say. Play of the year without a doubt. Man I hate New York as a whole…..but it is great to see the Patriots go down. No one cares about 18-1…..if anything they are the 3rd best 18-1 team of all time. Big kudos to the Giants defense. They made the Patriots offensive line look bad all day. If this was Strahan’s last game….what a way to go out. Hopefully more comes out about spygate in the next couple of days and the Pats suffer some more.

Man I love sports. 6 weeks ago everyone hated Coughlin and Eli. Now Coughlin is going to walk away with a 5 year extension and Eli is set for life in New York.

4 hours from game time

On November 19th I said one of the NY teams would beat the Pats……hopefully the Giants prove me right tonight. The game should definitely be a lot closer then what a lot of people are predicting. Giants definitely need this to be a low scoring game. It’s raining so the Dome should be closed. I think Eli will have himself another solid game. Giants definitely need a big game from Jacobs as they definitely need to keep the Pats off the field.

Giants 24….Patriots 21.

Championship Sunday

Should be a great day of football. I am expecting two very close games. It doesn’t look like we’ll see snow in either game but the weather should play a factor just because of the temperatures alone. I don’t care either way who comes out of the NFC….I just don’t want the Patriots to win. I’ve said it all year that there is no way they go unbeaten this year….hopefully someone proves me right.

Chargers 24
Patriots 21

Packers 27
Giants 21

Vegas has the Patriots as a 14 point favorite and the Packers at 7 and a half.
