Colts, Peyton Manning will go Tiger Woods on Bears in the Super Bowl
There was a time when watching the Super Bowl was like watching the U.S. interrogate a foreigner. Someone got savagely beaten and no one learned anything.
San Francisco beat Denver by 45 in Super Bowl XXIV. Dallas trounced Buffalo by 35 in Super Bowl XXVII. Baltimore stomped the Giants by 27 in Super Bowl XXXV. Since the Ravens’ win, however, four of the last five Super Bowls have been competitive battles where the winner was unknown until late in the game.
Not this year.
Super Bowl XLI promises to take us back to a simpler time. A time when the NFL’s title game was decided halfway through the second quarter, leaving fans the time and inclination to rank their favorite commercials. Basically, the Indianapolis Colts are going to go Tiger Woods on the Chicago Bears.
Am I showing a terrible lack of respect for the Bears, a team that has gone 15-3 this season and has a stellar defense? Yes, I am. Maybe Brian Urlacher can pin this blog on the locker room wall, and help his team lose by just 32.
Peyton Manning will remove himself from the list of great quarterbacks sans Super Bowl trophies on Sunday, and it’ll come much easier than he ever imagined. Because while Chicago’s defense and running game are respect-worthy, I can’t imagine ever living in a world where Rex Grossman leads his team to the promised land.
Sorry, Bears fans. Your team is about to get clobbered.

home with their tails between their legs.
the nice thing about people who talk smack like you is in the end you end up looking real dumb with your prediction
the bears had no chance to beat the saints remember what happend their?
the colts are a dome team and they are in big trouble
they cant stop our run and havent played a defence like ours
lets see whos right!
You should not be writing about football. Stick to golf.
Colts' receivers are better than Bears' secondary. Running game is a wash. Ds are different, and Bears have an edge, but Colts can cause problems for Grossman and Bears' receivers. QB is a no-brainer. Overall, Colts should be favored, but that's why they play the game.
Chris N.: I noticed you left out any mention of Rex Grossman in your comment.
I think your predictive skills are changing! WHo'll win the Master's?
But this one was kind of a gimme. I'll bet Vegas took a bath on this Super Bowl, with the exception of dedicated Bears fans who were betting their team could win without a quarterback.
Now I'll just sit here patiently waiting for those who slandered me to come apologize. They should be here any minute.
Anyway, good luck with the apologies.....and back to golf!
(I picked the Colts too)
