2018 Super Bowl Predictions?

Discussion in 'Sports' started by jrbiz, Dec 5, 2017.

    So, anyone ready to make a prediction as to which team will take it all in February? Given that they are 20 minutes from my house and looking stronger each game, I will go out on a limb to get the ball rolling and predict that the Patriots should take it all again this year. Tough to beat the old man, Brady. :)

    Boy, the Patriots showed some real weaknesses, at least in the first half, against the Titans, despite the big win. I am sticking with my prediction that they win it all again this year, but I have some lingering doubts about it. They can be beaten by the right team at the right time...

    My brother says Saints/Steelers in the big game. I have trouble ruling out the Patriots myself. That part of me that roots for underdogs keeps waving an Eagle's flag though.

    I do wonder about the Steelers. The Patriots got out of their last game with them by less than the skin of their teeth. I think that it would be better for the Partiots in the Championship game if Atlanta were to beat Pittsburgh today.

    I will say this: Brady has to up his game from how he has played the past few games. Too many less than perfect passes and he needs to be perfect most of the time. The team's offensive plays are built around him playing perfectly that vast majority of the time. To be fair, his receivers also need to up their games as they have dropped some balls that should have been catches.

    I agree about Brady. But then, I think his age is slowing him down. I can see a kicker playing into his 40s but when you're throwing, moving around the pocket, and taking hits you're feeling it a lot more once you reach the mid-30s.

    Still got a want for the Eagles to win. But those Vikings looked awful good yesterday.

    I was at a business dinner in Manhattan and suddenly the upstairs bar erupted in what I would describe as a roar of surprise. In the dining area, we did not know what was going on, but word quickly spread through the waitstaff that the Vikings had won the game with a touchdown at the very end. I was surprised at the reason the way it was explained, because the uproar seemed to be about much more than that. So, when I got back to the hotel, I learned the real story and saw the replay and that last play was amazing! Totally explains the bar crowd's reaction. The receiver said that they practice those types of desperation plays quite a bit in training camp and even during the season and this time it really paid off. Also note that if the Vikings make it into the Super Bowl, they will be playing at home...

    I'm hoping it's the Vikings and the Jaguars. Tired of Brady in the superbowl. Watch it be the Eagles and the Patriots since I said something.
