Who will win the Super Bowl?

Defense wins championships. That has been true forever, and it is not going to stop being true now. The Pittsburgh Steelers are going to win the Super Bowl because they have the league’s best defense. They also have some important players left over from their championship team a few years ago.

Of course, you can have as much experience as you want, but it still comes down to defense, and that’s why the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to win the Super Bowl.

Finally, a 50-50 chance of a perfect prognostication.

Atlanta was favored in Arizona ” down go the Falcons! ‘Zona was winless in the East ” down go the Panthers! It was Philly’s game to lose ” down go the Eagles!

And, for the fourth game in a row, the Cardinals (the only birds left in the air after the Ravens self-destructed in Steeltown) will be expected to lose.

But how can one pick against Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald, along with a somewhat rejuvenated Edgerrin James? Big Ben took another debilitating shot vs. Baltimore, Pitt’s running game has fizzled, and yet they’ll still be the favorites.

I don’t know about predictions, but I’m rooting for the rise of the Phoenix.

Who’s going to win the Super Bowl? The Denver Broncos of course. Forty-two wins in a row should teach people to realize they win every year. Chalk up No. 43 and go Broncos!!!
