Cato June was on for an interview, and he did as well.
Dr. Z picked the Giants to win.
Jerry Rice on Sirius NFL Radio said the Patriots don't match up well with the Giants, and predicted the Giants win the game.
I think Dr Z has easily lost hisdamn mind. If you read the article he basically says that he is going with the Giants cause he didn't go with the Jets in Superbowl 3. What the hell kind of logic is that?
His "reasons" the Giants would win came across as hopefull thinking more than actual analysis.
I just don't get this whole Giant bandwagon. They BARELY beat the Packers, who puked all over themselves and played like they did last year. The Cowboys decided too stop running the ball with Barber, and kept throwing and throwing EVEN though the Giants were pressuring them and they only needed one score! And am I really supposed to be impressed with a win over Tampa freakin Bay?? COME ON!
I swear, I could understand the Pats getting no love in 01, even some going with Carolina in 03, and the Eagles were a great team, so I understood people picking them too. But this is an UNDEFEATED TEAM against a team that went 10-6!!
AND WTF is all this talk about "well they won 11 in a row on the road. but 18 in a row PERIOD DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING!??
Fools are filled with conviction, while the truly wise are filled with doubt.
