Since the last time these two met in the Super Bowl, I have changed. Who I am, where I am going to watch it and how much of the pregame(all 6 and a half hours of it) to actually watch. None as far as I am concerned.
I love how many "experts" have chosen to use the week 9 matchup against these foes to draw comparisons and extrapolate what could, would and is going to happen in this Sundays game. Let me tell you why this is a fool’s errand. 1st each team has played in as many games as they did leading into week 9 since. 2nd these teams are different and they both have improved since that game. Can you count on both teams to not score in the 1st quarter?
I am also seeing lines of commonality between XLII and XLVI. There is one team that almost all the national broadcasters are picking to win. There is one team that beat the other team in the regular season. There's opinions that they can repeat a win in the Super Bowl. The ending will not be what you think, or maybe not what they think.
This wait till the Super Bowl has had me count my blessing that I am not a fan of another team. From the people in Buffalo realizing that upstate NY is not the nicest place in the world(shocker). To the people that are just so fixated on the Giants and how dominate the National League is. I am blessed to be a Patriots fan and I have faith that BB and Tom will be ready for war this Sunday.
Just like letting Flacco beat us in the air. I have a feeling that the Patriots will play back and make the likes of Amad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs try and beat us. There defensive line is the best in football. You know what, we know that and now it is not like it was in SB XLII
I would really like it if the Patriots came out in the no huddle and put up some points fast to get out to a lead. I believe that Vince will have a MONSTER game and really limit their running backs. Let Mark Anderson go. I know he can pick up and be the outside force we need him to be. I believe in Arrington, Moore, Chung and McCourtny. I believe they won’t let up more than 2 deep passes all game combined. James Ihaveahardnametospell, I have no such promises.
When we all look back at this, we'll see how smart/dumb we were. I am rooting for the Patriots and it will be a good game. I see it as 28-24 and it'll be close at the end. Here's to Tommy and BB, good luck fellas. Course one of my friends say "there is no such thing as luck there is just being prepared and executing at the opportunity". I may know some team that likes to be prepared and loves executing. For the life of me I cannot remember what they’re called. Oh yeah that was it, there called champions.
