Re: Championship Weekend Predictions
I don't bet on sports because there's so much uncertainty. You just never know what can happen. But I was almost tempted to bet on this game. I make some bold predictions regularly, but if asked to make one single prediction that I'd stake my house on it would be the Patriots beating the Colts in the playoffs. Indy just doesn't have what it takes on the defensive side of the ball to stop a balanced and smart offense, which is exactly what NE has. And the offense after all these years still hasn't figured out the NE defense. The difference between the two teams is mostly Bellicheck against Dungy. It's no comparison.
I feel bad for Manning, because I really believe if they simply switched the QB situation the result would be the same. But all we'll hear about from the masses is Brady vs. Manning when the difference is clearly something else. Manning against Indy's defense would be ugly. They'd score 50 points. And Brady with that Indy offense going against a Bellicheck designed scheme would also be pretty ugly, IMO.
I gurantee you Indy was praying that San Diego won last week. They'd much rather be playing IN San Diego right now than home against New England.
This game was over before it started. Looks like it will be 4 out of 6 for the Patriots. That's damn impressive in this day and age.
