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.
Colts 31....Bears 17
Indy 37 Chicago 20
Colts - 34 ... Bears - 24
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.
Colts 24 Da Bears 15
It will be real cold on the day of the victor's parade...
I must sadly agree. Pat's beat Bears, Colts beat Pat's. 'Nuff said.
My prediction ... one team will win ... the other will not
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 the half time entertainment will suck.
I hope that the NFL doesn't find out about this thread. Tehy own teh words "Super bowl", you know, and they don't let people use them without permission.
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.
I don't have a link for it, but I have an email I can forward to you that has it. Send me your email via freepmail and I'll send it off to you (you can't link stuff in FR mail)
Much to my chagrin, I think it's
Thanks, but I did a Google search and found it.
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.
The steamed shrimp and wings will be gone by halftime.
wait, that doesn't make sense. the score would be Colts 30, Bears 28 in that scenario.
I'm with you on the pick. I'm usually wrong, but....
I will go against "conventional wisdom" and take the Bears in the "upset".
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.
My prediction is that this Super Bowl will have the lowest viewer rating in the last ten years.
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.
Final score - Colts 34 Bears 20
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.
The team with the most points WILL win!
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.
Prince will be good.
The commercials will be good.
The Colts will win 16-13.
Now, if Ditka was with the Bears ...
Bears 176 Colts 0
Bears will win, and Rex Grossman will be named Super Bowl MVP.
The Bears aren't at Soldier Field........
The game is in a warm cushy stadium, lots of lights dancing girls and fanfare.
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 don't care which team wins as long as they score the correct number of times in order to ensure I will big on my football squares. :)
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.
Prince is the half time show.
With respect to that, I predict that Prince way something purple from Minnesota gets on a Superbowl field for a loooooong time.
I predict that my friends and I will drink a copious amount of beer and consume dozens of Bojangles' buffalo wings.
Final Bears 24 - Colts 10.
