Superbowl XLI prediction

When I started this blog over a year ago, I decided to write about the two things I know well: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal and NFL Football. I started with a few football posts but I deleted them when I moved from Blogger to WordPress so I could stay focused on the Metal.

I am a New England Patriots diehard, have been since I was a young boy. I’m also a Patriots season ticket holder of 14 years. I got my tickets right after the team signed QB Drew Bledsoe in 1993. Section 143, Row 18, Seats 1 & 2 at Gillette Stadium.

I hate the Indianapolis Colts. I can’t stand QB Peyton Manning much like I couldn’t stand QB Dan Marino in Miami. The Colts used to be a division rival and Peyton has always come across as a stat hungry player. Whether it’s the whining on the field when he’s losing (like Marino) or throwing his teammates under the bus in post-game press conferences (like he did last year with his offensive line), the NFL’s poster boy has always bothered me. I’ve taken great pleasure at watching him lose in the playoffs, especially when we’re the team beating him. When the Pats were bounced by the Colts in the AFC Championship, all hope of revenge on the Chicago Bears were dashed. (Yes, I still feel the pain of Superbowl XX when the Patriots got crushed by the Bears 46-10.) That makes rooting for either team a problem.

It’s with a heavy heart that I have to go with the Chicago Bears. As much as I hate them for the past, I hate the Colts more for the present. Go Bears!

My prediction:
Chicago Bears            24
Indianapolis Colts      20

  1. I’m a Pats fan so the outcome didn’t matter. What mattered was that the game was horrible. I’ve never seen a first half of football played like that, both sides were practically giving the game to the other.

    The greater of two evils won. I still can’t forget the Bears beating the Pats, the Packers beating the Pats, and the Colts for existing.

    Scoreboard: Pats 3 rings, Colts 2

    On to next year!

  2. I rooted for the Colts because I generally root for the AFC. I think the game deserves to go down like the last time the Colts were there and that is a sloppy game on both sides. Fortunately the Colts got enough of a handle on it to put the Bears away. I still question Dungy as a coach because this team should have been here before now. The Bears might very well be back. Lovie Smith has won 24 regular season games and two playoff games over the last two years. He has done it with a couple of different qb’s and not much of them have been any good. So he has done something right.
