My Super Bowl XLI Pick

I don’t have feelings one way or another for either the Bears or the Colts. I am a little partial toward the Bears simply because one of my good friends, Eugene, has been a Bears fan as long as I’ve known him and has suffered through a 21-year Super Bowl drought very patiently. This has the potential to be a very good game. If the Bears come out playing like they did last week, they could seriously give Payton Manning and the rest of the Colts some problems. The Colts need to make sure they’re not letting the hype about them being the team-to-beat get to their heads. Better teams have often lost the big game simply because they weren’t prepared mentally.

The problem I see is that the Bear’s quarterback, Rex Grossman, has been widely inconsistent all year. He’s had some good games but others where he’s been just awful. Manning, on the other hand, can have a bad game but still be counted on to score. The Bears have great defense, but against the Colts you still need an offense that can put points on the board. I just don’t see Grossman having the big game he needs to give the Bears their second Super Bowl title.

So, yeah, I think the Colts will win even though I’ll be cheering for the Bears.

Sorry, Eugene.

And speaking of the Bears, who can forget their Super Bowl Shuffle from 1986. Thanks, Jason. I forgot all about it.
