Default Super Bowl XLVI: Giants vs. Patriots

Not crazy about this matchup, wanted to see the 49ers, but oh well. I could see the Giants winning with their momentum, but the Pats are very good and I'm not picking against Tom Brady. Pats win, 34-24.

Here's my official Super Bowl pick, courtesy of Bleacher Report -


Either a team that finished 9-7 during the regular season will win Super Bowl XLVI, or a team that allowed 411 yards per game during the regular season will.

Blame it on the lockout.

But maybe the "other" Manning simply has New England's number? And then there is always The Ankle Theory.

The Ankle Theory, you ask?

The last three times a key player on a Super Bowl team has had a significant ankle injury going into the game, his team lost - Terrell Owens seven years ago, Dwight Freeney two years ago, and Maurkice Pouncey in last year's edition.

This year's man on a ledge with an iffy ankle: Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

And who else noticed that the NFC won the inter-conference season series this year (albeit just barely, 33 wins to 31) for the first time since 1995?

There is an ongoing debate in New York about whether that cash-strapped city can afford to host twin parades for both returning Iraq War veterans, and the Giants, should they win the Super Bowl - with talking heads on the political left, rather surprisingly, forcefully making the case for the former, but not the latter.

Fine, then. Do as then-Big Apple mayor Ed Koch suggested a quarter-century ago: If the New Jersey Giants - and that's what they actually are, after all - want a parade, let them parade in front of the oil drums in Moonachie!

They will earn a parade somewhere though, because the final score of Super Bowl Forty-Six is going to be:

N.Y. Giants 27 (+3 1/2), New England 17

Postseason totals: 5-4-1, Pct. .550. Best Bets: 2-0-1, Pct. .833.

Point spread (opening line) in parentheses after underdog team; selection with point spread in bold.

It was a very entertaining game. Either team could have won the game.

But if the playoff teams had been seeded strictly by record and the Giants had to play their wild-card game at New Orleans, would they have even gotten to the divisional playoffs, much less won the Super Bowl?

Why is this titled Giants vs Pats?

Maybe a real thread of Niners vs Ravens?
