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?

Giants win 24-17. I’ll be on twitter during the game. Follow me @sahyder1

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.
