Like at my post above (the 2nd one). I called the teams and the results. Pats are about a two touchdown favorite. Take the Giants like I am.

Pats by 14-21 points.

Brady is cool as a cucumber when blitzed..........reminds me of a taller Joe Montana............

Is to too early to predict that the Dolphins will be the NFL team to make the first selection in the 2008 draft?

I might take that bet. I'll bet they trade the pick. They dont need just one guy. They need about 12.

I've been a Pats fan since for 40 years ... I see them winning but I don't see them covering the spread (13 pts).

Last game of the season was a 3 point nail bitter ... and now Brady's in a soft cast (yikes!)

This Cowboy fan says, GO GIANTS! GO NFC EAST!

The Giants are a great story with all the road wins. The Pats look unbeatable but I don't know about two touchdown spread. I quit betting on football several years ago so I don't have to worry about it.

No soft cast on Brady today. He was seen in plain old leather shoes tromping around town with Giselle today. Many doctors consulted on their opinion expressed that it cant be anything serious if he's able to walk without a limp wearing a regular shoe. Probably just a bruise or mild sprain.

Nothing two weeks and another superbowl trophy wont fix.

Like Tryan, I had to suffer through a lot of disappointment as a Boston area football fan, for a lot of years. Its real nice to have things looking good for a while.

I am also a member of that club. I mean, who could forget that particularly proud and stellar 1990 season.....

Straight up you have to pick the Pats. But I like underdogs, so I'm pulling for Eli and the Giants.

Yep, I remember that an a couple of other years where I was figuring we'd be the first to have a winless season and was thrilled if they kept a game close.

I mean, who wouldnt be proud of a washed up Steve Grogan sharing time with an equally washed up Wade Wilson, with Tommy Hodson ready to come off the bench at any moment... :

I guess its better than having a quarterback whose own offensive lineman once remarked "Tony Eason? He should wear a dress on the field..."

It is Sunday morning the day of the GREAT GAME.

Has anybody had any last minute change of mind on which team will win?

I will not make a prediction because so far I am 0 and 4 (all wrong). But I will say that the N.E Patroits are a great team and the N.Y Giants are a big underdog. We all remember what happen way back when the Pats were a huge underdog to the then mighty Rams. We do also remember Joe Willy and the N.Y Jets way back in the Super Bowl against the Colts. Both underdogs pulled off upsets.

So yes, the football Giants, a very good team on a roll, do have a chance to win and pull off one of the biggest upsets ever.

Everybody have a safe Super Bowl Sunday.

GOD BLESS US ALL

The only way (Giants can win) and it's not very likely, is for the Giants to blitz every play and to hold/bump/knock down Moss every play. Make the refs call the holding. Hit Brady every play, no matter what and make the refs call that. On the offensive side, keep the ball. The Giants have a running back, Brandon Jacobs, who's 260 pounds or so. Use him 20 times or so. Go on 4th down if within 2 yards. Fake punts. In other words, take risks. Coach Coughlin does not do this; he's old school, a Bill Parcells type coach. Therefore, Tom Brady will calmly throw 3 or 4 TDs and the Pats will win going away.

McCain over Obama despite losing the popular vote - not finally decided until 3 weeks after election day. Oops wrong contest - So Sorry!

Still going with a Giants upset and expecting endless Manning commercials for months to come.

We had another power outage due to a storm yesterday, and it just came back a few minutes ago. Phew! Don't want to miss those commercials!

It's about 7 minutes before the game and I will make a prediction (did not want to make one)- the football New York Giants will win by a cat's whisk·er .

I hope that I did not jinx the Giants.

GOD BLESS US ALL

Yep, both defenses came to play. The second half adjustments should make it interesting...Petty is looking/sounding good, waiting for the obligatory wardrobe malfunction...
