Cogito Patris

Random Thoughts for Random People

I said it all along…

I am now 100% sure that I picked the Superbowl champ back in the offseason.

You see, back then I picked all but one team to win the Superbowl.  The only team I didn’t choose happened to be the top seed in the NFC.  So, I was concerned.

Now that the Giants have knocked them off, I feel better.

So, here are my predictions for the Superbowl:

The Packers will win

Unless the Giants win it.

Or the Bolts win it.

Then again, maybe the Pats will finish their undefeated season.

With the Cowboys eliminated, the only thing I am rooting for is a loss for the Pats in the Superbowl.

  1. Well since my preferred Manning played like crap yesterday and the Colts defense was even worse, I resorted to rooting for the other Manning and he won. Unfortunately that is short-lived since I live with someone from Milwaukee. We are now Packers all the way or ‘whomever can beat New England…’ ha ha ha!

  2. Why Pats will win it all.
    The Patriots and Giants have met eight times in the regular season, with New England holding a 5-3 advantage. And, the Patriots have won the past four, all of them tight games.

    History 101
    1970 Giants 18, Patriots 0
    1974 Patriots 24, Giants 20
    1987 Giants 17, Patriots 10
    1990 Giants 13, Patriots 10
    1996 Patriots 23, Giants 22
    1999 Patriots 16, Giants 14
    2003 Patriots 17, Giants 6
    2007 Patriots 38, Giants 35

    History 102 …

    Both the Patriots and Giants have a history filled with great moments, but who is the face of the franchise? While it would probably get a lot of arguments, we’re saying that for the Giants, it’s Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor. Although he had off-field problems, on the field he redefined the position. As for the Patriots, Tom Brady has become Mr. Patriot. New England obviously doesn’t have as great a history as the Giants, but Brady has taken the franchise to a new level, and the team might never look back.

    … and 103

    Curious about those histories? The Patriots have put together a 366-349-9 record in the regular season and are 21-12 in the postseason with three Super Bowl titles. Their all-time passing leader is (deep breath) Drew Bledsoe with almost 30,000 yards, leading rusher is Sam Cunningham (5,453 yards) and their leading receiver was Stanley Morgan (10,352 yards). The Giants are 606-506-33 in the regular season and are 19-23 record in the postseason, including two Super Bowl titles. Phil Simms is their all-time passing leader (33,462 yards), Tiki Barber their leading rusher (10,449 yards) and Amani Toomer, who is still catching passes, their leading receiver with 8,917 yards
    New England Patriots will win by 17.

  3. The Patriots are a 12-point favorite with oddsmakers as they try to become the second team in league history to win all their regular-season games and the title. The 1972 Miami Dolphins went 17-0, beating the Washington Redskins 14-7 in the Super Bowl.

    Jim Kiick, who was a running back for the undefeated Dolphins, said that as a New Jersey resident his heart is with the Giants. His head, Kiick added, says New England prevails.

    “To go against their perfection would be crazy,” the Lincoln Park, New Jersey, native said in an interview.

    Go PATS
