Super Bowl Predictions
ME

Posted on 02/02/2007 8:08:36 AM PST by dleecomeback07

How about some predictions not only on Score but how the game will go?

And Identify whether or not you're a huge fan of either team or just a regular football fan.

Me Bears fan since birth. My oldest's middle name is Payton. Not PEyton but PAyton.

Bears 31 Colts 28.

Bears keep Peyton off the field with solid running game. Grossman is steady but not spectacular just like he was against the Saints. Doesn't turn the ball over, overall stats nothing to write home about but he makes the plays and passes when he needs to. Defense or Special Teams makes 1 TD. Rex throws for one. Thomas Jones and Cedric Benson each run for 1.

Manning still has good game the Bears beat the Colts D. The main reason Manning doesn't win is the Bears relying heavily on the run keeping him off the field.

Time of Posession winds up being key to victory along with no turnovers.

I think this is going to be a game that shocks the experts. The Colts defense finally "reverted to form" in the AFC championship game and the Bears have a monster running attack. Add to that the fact that the Colts punt and kick coverage stinks and the Bears have Hester and all the pieces are in place to prove the talking heads wrong, again.

One team will win. One team will lose. The halftime show will convince more real fans to skip the whole thing next year, like the Janice Jackson flop did for me two years ago.

It is supposed to be a football game...the biggest one of the year. The only good thing that has come out of the Super Bowl of late was that Bud commercial showing the soldiers walking through the airport. Can someone link that one up, please?

Luckily sports doesn't actually use the transitive power of math. Up until recently the AFC had the wierd circle of the Pats owning the Colts, the Colts owning the Broncos and yet the Broncos owned the Pats.

Also remember for the Pats-Bears game both offenses played terribly, it's really not indicitive of anything other than Rex Grossman's worst day can apparently be worse than Tom Brady's worst day.

I predict that the team with the most points at the end of the game will win. :-)

My real prediction: Bears 35 Colts 31. Gotta pull for the NFC (being a Cowboys fan, and all).

My 4-year-old son will beat me in Candyland, Chutes & Ladders, and Go Fish. I will fail to see the game in crystal clear quality because I have Dish Network and don't live in an area that has a network affiliate.

Colts 31, Bears 28

I see the Bears leading late, with the colts at 27. The colts drive down the field, and set up a Vinatieri FG in the closing seconds. Sound familiar? I think the result is the same.

I think Manning has an MVP performance, and Grossman does better than expected. He throws a fine deep pass, and will catch the Colts napping at least once.

The Colts D reverted to form in the first quarter and a half, but the Pats stopped being able to run the ball after that.

But the Pats were still moving the ball effectively. In the end their defensive performance was pretty close to what they had against the Pats in the regular season, which actually was one of the defense's better games.

The pats were scoring a lot, but remember one of the TDs was a pick 6, and the poor Indy special teams kept resulting in great starting field position for the pats. I think Indy's D did very well after a shaky start.

I am going to pick the Bears as well. Might as well since I have not done a very good job of picking teams to win during the end of the season in NFL. Maybe my luck will change!

The Pats got 319 total yards of offense averaging 5.4 yards per play. What killed them was the defense's complete inability to get off the field, as demonstrated by the Colts 80 total plays compared to the Pats 59.

Indy 21, Chicago 16.

Chicago's defense will be fired up, but Manning will handle them anyway. Indy's defense has played better than the Bears' defense throughout the playoffs, and I expect them to stop the run just fine.

In most Super Bowls (86%) the team with the fewest points scored against it in the regular 16 game season wins. The Bears defense allowed only 255 points the Colts 360. The Bear defense is third best in the NFL.

Bears 31
Colts 21

Bears 34, Colts 30.

Bears' front seven contol Addai and make Indy one-dimensional.

Colts' defense largely handles Bears' attack except for a couple of big plays that result in touchdowns.

Chicago also score on special teams and defense.

Bears 30
Colts 28

Despite Hester running back two punt returns, and the Bears defense shutting down Manning by holding them to 3rd and long on several series of play. This forces three interceptions by Manning. The Bears only captialize on one. Addai has a decent running game, which keeps the Colts alive. Manning has a good drive late in the foruth and puts the Colts ahead by one with three minutes left to play.
Grossman leads the offense down the field and Gould kicks the winning field goal.
Hester will be the MVP, Phil Simms will make a big deal out of it because he is young. Grossman won't play an awesome game, but won't completely suck either.
The pulled pork sanwiches will be awesome. The hot wings superb and I will avoid heartburn and indigestion by taking Prilosec on Saturday.

I can't see Manning being able to handle the on-slaught that the Bears defense will bring. Anytime Manning is moved from the pocket he loses...look at the Texan's playbook vs.Manning.
Look for the Bears Def/Special teams to put up a couple of scores as well......Bears 34 Colts 14.

Following his 5th interception, at half time the Colts resort to sticking little pennants on poles into the waist of all their wide receivers so Manning can tell who to throw to.

Final Bears 24 - Colts 10.
