Yeah, the Giants basically have all the same pieces they had in their title run, plus a healthy and more talented receiving corps. My money's on them as Super Bowl champions, over the Ravens. Although a rematch with New England would be interesting, I'm really rooting against it for some reason.
We'll just have to see about that. If we bring our A game against the Patriots, which we have every single time we've played them in the playoffs, then that just won't happen. But if the team that showed up today against the Texans show up, then I will most definitely be disappointed.
So who are ya'll picking tomorrow. I'm picking the Ravens and the 49ers...I think( mainly for the cool superbowl coaching implications). I'm picking the Ravens cause they are my favorite team and Tom Brady is not a real person and he shouldn't be counted. I'm really torn between the 49ers and Giants though, I like things about both of those teams, but my final choice has to be the 49ers.
I think that the Ravens will beat the Patriots, because the Ravens have played lights out in big games on the road all season long. If the Patriots win, I expect Gronkowski to catch 4 touchdowns.
I think that the Giants will win in San Francisco because the Giants have the best receiving corps in the NFL and maybe the best pass rush in the NFL. If San Francisco wins it will be because Eli throws 3+ picks. I'm rooting for SF; the fever in the bay is palpable right now, it's a pretty cool environment. But I don't think they'll pull it off.
I'd really enjoy seeing a rematch of New England and New York in the Super Bowl.
I don't have anything against San Francisco or Baltimore, or even the Harbough brothers... it just doesn't sound like a very appealing game to me. It'll just be a shitload of running if that's what happens. I prefer quarterbacks airing it out vs running backs rushing like 25 times a game.
New York vs New England just seems like a more enjoyable matchup - to me.
The first Harbowl was the most boring game of the season (not counting the BCS championship) so I really don't want that to happen again. I'm not worried about it because the patriots are playing stellar football right now and they're going to crush the Ravens
