who do you think will win superbowl?

Recommended Posts

Seattle looks good, but only at home. 

 

They would probably have to go to Atlanta, which Atlanta is good at home but bad in the playoffs.

 

49ers look a lot better with Kaepernick as the QB then Smith but they will have to go to Seattle and we just saw how that went.

 

Texans look good but if they go against the Pats again, they will likely lose. 

 

Pats make the most sense out of the AFC to go to the Super Bowl, as long as Denver has to go to Foxboro.

 

Broncos could win if they have home field.

 

As much as I love seeing the Colts in the playoffs, we won't make it past Wild Card Weekend.

I could get on board with this!  That would make my year!  We win a game or two in the playoffs and Manning wins the superbowl!  This year.  Next year, when we have more talent, I'll have to root for the Colts over Manning.  That'll be a GAME!  But I'd rather save it for next year...

Seahawks look dangerous, depends on how RW fairs in the postseason.

Falcons I think will struggle with a lacklustre run game and Matty Ice's limitations.

Me being a Colts fan aside, I think Houston are pretenders, 1 season away from being serious contenders.

Green Bay can put up numbers but you can't win against the competition in the postseason with a secondary as leaky as theirs.

Broncos can definitely make a serious push , AFC title game for sure.

Ravens can be contenders for the title if their defense steps up. The return of Ray Lewis would be huge.

The Pats could go all the way if they keep their secondary tight, and keep Gronk healthy.

The Niners HAVE to be more consistent, especially on defense. Getting pounded like they did Sunday just won't cut it.

My prediction: Broncos 20 - 17 Seahawks

Pats/Texans v. Packers/Niners

 

dark horses either colts or whoever gets in from the NFC East(cowboys/redskins/giants). Colts will be playing hard with pagano back and the nfc east is a lot stronger than their records. 

 

Broncos will be out early. Quote me on it. They'll either play the Pats or Texans. Brady has shredded that defense over and over and it'll be no different. Manning will quickly find out that he's not beating up on * AFC west teams anymore LOL.

I do think the Cowboys could be a dark horse if they get in, seriously. Maybe it's an NFC East thing I don't know but they would be following almost the same pattern as last years Giants. If the Cowboys win Sunday night maybe they are finally "getting it." If not then same old Cowboys.

 

It would likely be Seattle at Dallas though likely for the WC round which would be tough. But, maybe Romo could beat his demons from that game in early 2007. :woah: I think Seattle has become the new NFC darling though.

History shows teams with true franchise QBs win the Super Bowl. Rookie QBs dont win either. Colin K., Russel Wilson, Andrew Luck, Matt Schaub, RG3, Andy Dalton, Ponder and Flacco all get ruled out. that leaves Peyton, Brady, Rodgers and Matty Ice. one of those guys will win the Super Bowl. the only way to break that formula is to have the defensive performance of the decade like the Ravens. that means the Seahawks and 49ers have a slight chance, but I am not willing to bet on it.

I think instead of saying "true franchise QBs" you should just say universally accepted "elite" QBs. If thats the case it leaves pretty much Brady/Manning/Rodgers since I am not sure I put Matt Ryan in the elite group. But, then again there have been many over the years who never even considered Eli Manning to be elite and still might not now. He just turns it up at times in the postseason so who knows if another Eli is in the  group. Who considered Eli Manning to be anything great when he waltzed into the SB in early 2008 vs. Tom Brady's 18-0 Patriots? Not many.Sure you can argue the Giants D was the reason they won 2 SB's but Eli is still the one who had two game winning drives in both SB wins.

 

 

Kaepernick is not a rookie either. But, it will be his first postseason starting and many 49ers fans hope for a Brady 2000 type of story I think. It will also be the first postseason for Matt Schaub. The real rookie with the best shot is likely Wilson due to his defense but doing it all on the road if they stay as a WC will be tough. However, just like a 9-7 team finally won it all last year, a rookie QB I guess could win it all someday too. But, history is not on the side for the Colts/Skins/Seahawks. It's not on the side of rookie head coaches too.

 

Super Bowl history also does not favor QBs over the age of 35:

Yes, I should say universally accepted elite QB's, because that's what I meant.    

 

Let's just pick a year.  Since 1988 (24 years ago), only 3 non elite QBs have won the Super Bowl.  Doug Williams, Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer.  And you could make a case for Williams, who was actually pretty good.  Everybody else is a universally accepted elite QB.  That's mind boggling and yet fans forget that every year or they think this will be one of those upset years.  So, I still say if you look at the best QB's in the playoffs this year, one of them will win the whole thing.

I think if Brees made the playoffs it would have made the NFC "elite" convo a bit more interesting. Matt Ryan is still on ice......not sure yet on him.

 

And someday RG3/Luck/Wilson could be elite but they are not considered yet. Ben is out in the AFC but even some still don't consider him "elite". Same with Eli if he sneaks in.

 

If two of Manning/Brady/Rodgers are in the SB I won't be stunned at all, nobody would be.

 

But, history would favor Rodgers more too vs. Brady/Manning based on his age and the average age of starting QBs who win the big one and he fits the criteria for "elite".

 

Of course with a 9-7 team finally winning it all who knows what trends might end. :)

Denver.   They are the most complete team in the AFC.  I think Kaepernick will ultimately kill the 49ers.  Seattle is playing well but too inconsistent.

I can't say I'm overly impressed by Denver, they look a lot like PM's teams in Indy. Kind of smallish on  D , play on the lead, recievers are not as talented, ok running game. I don't think they have what it takes in the playoffs to beat NE.

Brady was a rookie when they beat the Rams, or close to it.

    • Prevent is the defense I call the prevent me from winning they need to scrap that play from the playbook.
    • I agree on that but what I am getting at is their number of lineup changes in the OL which at last count was around 36. That cannot be defended ever. The players know they are failures. Grigson did not just make one mistake. 
    • The reason they both look tired by 3rd quarter is because they are on the field way too much throughout the game.
    • They just tied the record for the second most sacks given up in the entire history of the Colts and folks, that goes back a long way. They can't see their feet much less a light at the end of the tunnel. A good coach solves problems like many teams have done this season. The Colts get worse and that means either the staff is incompetent or they simply don't give a rats rear. Pagano's post game press conference after the disaster at home with the Jags showed he does not care. He was sarcastic and avoided every question insulting the reporters just doing their jobs. When you get hammered at home you have only one thing left to do and that is make n attempt to be respectful of the reporters who will turn and tell the fans what you said and how you said it. Ignorant Brissett said "Is there a problem with this team"? Yes there is smart guy and you a part of it. Hilton hammers the OL in public. All signs point to Pagano's lack of authority over his players. He want to be daddy and Santa Clause to football players. That has never worked at any level. 
    • We can probably even argue the more power he's been given and the freer he's been during his tenure the more his weaknesses have shined and overtaken the performance of the team. In a weird twisted kind of way Grigson might have been a balance to the buddy-buddy relationship between Pagano and the players. Right now wheels are falling off both on the field and off the field(players blaming whole position groups for the  failings of the team in front of sensation-hungry journalists, etc). I previously thought Pagano was an OK coach who simply not good enough to go against the best of the best. Right now I'm revising my view and leaning more and more toward the conclusion that he's not even as good as I used to give him credit for. From preparation to personnel decisions, to game management to player development... where is he even remotely successful? I don't see it. To me this looks like a total and complete failure on all fronts by Pagano.
