    I usually don't get caught up with who picks who to win, but this is getting ridiculous. Outside of Doug Flutie I have not heard anyone pick the Pats.

    I live in New York so I expect it from the papers and local shows, but every national radio and TV show I have seen has someone picking the Giants. And some think it won't even be close.

    I guess I shouldn't even watch the game.

    ...and it's because of this fact that you should be supremely confident. If we've learned nothing the past 10 years it is the fact that the Patriots play their best in this role. When they are "disrespected" (even if they are not truly disrespected). They just seem to play better with a chip on their collective shoulder.

    MacMullen,Tanguay and Felger like the Pats to win

    Borges says Giants

    Nobody that I know of predicted a blowout by either team

    Personally I see this game being already decided BY THE START of the 4th quarter....whoever is leading by the end of the 3rd will have a comfortable lead IMO

    I think there will be a team that will have multiple turnovers that will put the game out of reach......no 3 point Super Bowl for the Pats this time around.

    Its been rumored that "Birdman" dropped 5 million on the pats

    "I like New ENGLaNd.my nephew play RB# 42.I'm Bet 5million 2 any n-.like tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit,"

    he wrote in a barely decipherable tweet.




    The most redundant rapper (Song: Fire Flame) with the most redundant label name (Cash Money) who is also cousins with "The Law Firm" is droppin 5 MILL!!???

    for those who don't know ....

    WARNING: NSFW...explicit lyrics....Weezy just got out of jail.

    Redundancy..redundantly repeating.

    No, don't get me wrong I am loving this. But its not like the Pats are a underdog.

    Even when the Pats were playing the Rams in 2001, there were a few people who picked the Pats.

    I do remember feeling the same way with the AFC Championship game vs the Steelers in 2001 and we know what happened there.

    I am expecting the same outcome. I can't wait.

    A lot are picking the Pats. A lot are picking the Giants.

    The Giants are definitely picking the Giants.

    A bunch of people in the NY media are taking the Giants in a blowout.

    Nationally Banks, Shefter and Schlareth are the only ones I've seen take the Pats so far. The list taking the Giants is 10:1.

    Seems like everyone thinks the giants d-line will destroy Brady again.This offensive line should play with a chip on their shoulder.

    The giants players have been chirping alot.Cant stand Antrel Rolle.This team has to get off to a good start.Have to find a way to put pressure on Manning!!

    Actually you spelled it right! Adam Schefter & John Clayton Picked the Pats too (Clayton pick isn't represented on ESPN's NFL Expert Picks tho): NFL Picks and Predictions for Super Bowl - National Football League - ESPN

    Accuscore computers also picked the Pats. As I noted in the Accuscore thread, I wonder if there is any corrolation between those two Patriot picks and the fact that Accuscore is the most accurate predictor of games this season and is 16-2 in picking Patriot games this year (68%).

    Schlareth is the second most accurate and the most accurate human (65%). :D

    Along those lines....

    Only one of the 4 ESPN talking heads would want Brady over Manning in crunch time and that was Kurt Warner....

    Doug Flutie and someone tweeted that Tebow said "it's hard to pick against Brady" but I'm not positive.

    I've learned that, when every blowhard in the media thinks one thing, and Vegas (not moving the line even with 60% of money on the Giants) thinks the opposite, you always want Vegas to be backing your team. Which is exactly what's happening: the casinos will make an absolute killing if the Pats cover.
