Two great teams, two great quarterbacks, two great offences, and two great defences. Should shape up to be a very exciting superbowl game.

I'm taking Philly over New England... 24-21.

I thought people were crazy to bet against the Pats the last two weeks (as proven by my vCash total). And I say the same thing now.

Brady stays undefeated. Pats by 3.

It's going to be a tight game for sure though... Owens may be back, that's what my decision is based on, if he is not in the lineup though I reverse my score.

Owens will be back.

Whether he's healthy enough to make a difference remains to be seen...

Philly's D will step it up. 2 very good teams, tough choice but I say the Eagles by 8. As for a score, Eagles 31 Pats 23.

:D I'm not sure I would ever go against Bellichick. The Pats have better coaching, special teams and more experience. Pats by 6.


But maybe I'll change my mind in the next two weeks...

Where did you hear that Angelus?

Maybe I was asleep during the game, but I didn't hear a mention of T.O. returning for the superbowl game.

I heard mention that he "might" be back.........no matter, Patsy's are on cruise control.....

I actually don't know for sure. That's just my opinion. I don't think there's anything that could keep him out of this one...

How can you not bet on the Patriots now. Theyre on a roll, and have all the weapons on offense and defense needed to roll over the Eagles.

Early lines form vegas have the Pats favored by 6 - 6 1/2 points.

Can't bet against the Pats now. They shut down the league's best offence one week and light up the league's best defence the next.

God...for some reason I hate Bellichuk.

But I'll wager $300 v-bucks on the Pats now. I feel so dirty...

the pats are methodically dominating... 3 in 4 in todays NFL, a la salary cap / parity in the league? I would have thought it could never been done, but it looks so now.

Sorry earl2, I am a woman...I am already flopping. My head says NE but my heart says Philly... I always follow my heart (even though it usually gets me into trouble....)

Today I am going with Philly by 3. :)

I think alot of people underestimate Philly though, they are a very good team.

I hope New England also underestimates them *wishful thinking*

It's gonna be a very tight game, may the best team win.

Must be a female thing. My wife is calling for Philly by 7. :rolleyes:

Of course her knowledge of the NFL isn't exactly great. She figures if Philly beat the Vikings, they must be the best team!!

...apparantly I've been talking up the Vikings a little too much over the course of the season... :o

geez.......I have the opposite problem, if I followed my head all the time i'd always be getting into trouble ;)

My wife has been picking NE all through the playoffs, she likes the uniforms....
so far so good.

I think a 50-60% TO hurts Philly's chances. Kind of like Avery in the 2002 Grey Cup.

The guy is an outstanding player. But the injury levels the playing field.

Doc's won't clear TO to play.....at least as of today.....be interesting to see if they change their minds in the next week or so.....
