    I am 15-0 in my Super Bowl pics...

    Since I am 15-0 in my last 15 Super Bowl pics, I figured I would let you know who is going to win the big game this year.

    Since 1991's game where the Giants beat the Bills, what I do to pick a winner is simple:

    The team with more letters in their name that has the most letters in the words "SUPER BOWL" has went on to capture the Lombardi Trophy 15 times *!!

    Example (last year's game):

    Patriots (4) vs. Eagles (3)

    # - If tied, then one simply moves to the team's home name (example: New England vs. Carolina) (** - If still tied, then one moves to the last name of the staring QB)

    Therefore, this year's game winner will be:

    Steelers (4) vs. Seahawks (3)

    STEELERS WIN!!!!!

    But, the real question is, do they win by more than 4?

    Uhh, what about when the Packers beat the Patriots.

    Packers (4)
    Patriots (4)

    Green Bay (3)
    New England (3)

    Bledsoe (4)
    Favre (2)

    That was the first one I tried too. So, my guess is this theory is totally wrong.

    What about
    SB XXX Dallas 27, Pittsburgh 17

    Cowboys - 4
    Steelers - 4

    Dallas - 2
    Pittsburgh = 4

    Did I count wrong?

    it was actually a pretty interesting theory, until you guys shot it down twice... i guess the guy who came up with it wasnt very thorough

    Yeah, the guy definitely wasn't thorough. Even the game he mentioned, giants vs. bills, was wrong.

    Giants-1
    Bills-3

    Uh..

    Super Bowl
    (S)t(e)(e)(l)(e)(r)(s)
    that's 7, unless he's counting by unique letters, then yeah I can see how he got to 4.
    (S)(e)aha(w)k(s)
    4, or 3 unique.

    As other posters have pointed out, the math seems to be a little off on prior games, unless we're confused about unique letters and total letters as I've pointed out.
