What team should you pick to win the Super Bowl? Hopefully this preview can help you decide what team to pick. This preview does not contain statistics or game predictions. From an emotional view point, what team would you be comfortable of winning the Lombardi Trophy?
Breakdown of the Final Four:
Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco can finally answer his critics with a Super Bowl win. Talk about the Steelers eating crow ( specifically Lamar Woodley) Is it possible that Ray Lewis retire in grand fashion like Tony LaRussa did?
Fun fact: John Elway is the only quarterback to reached the Super Bowl five times. Don’t forget that the New England Patriots are honoring the late Myra Kate (Patriots’ owner wife).
New York Giants – The Giants might inspire some people with their trial and tribulation story.
San Francisco 49ers: The dark horse of the four teams. Talk about the biggest turnaround in sports. Last season, the Niners finished with a 6-10 record.
Possible Super Bowl Match ups:
New England Patriots vs San Francisco 49ers
The David and Goliath story in football form. A Future Hall of Fame Quarterback and coach against a rookie coach and an unproven quarterback. Can Alex Smith prove that he is a MVP quarterback? Can Tom Brady win his 4th championship furthering the gap between him and his peers?
Baltimore Ravens vs New York Giants
Grudge match of Super Bowl XXXV. Can Joe Flacco finally take the Baltimore Ravens to the promise land? Will Ray Lewis retire? Will the Ravens triumph over the Giants again? Is Eli Manning a one hit wonder? Are the Giants' lucky?
New England Patriots vs New York Giants
Grudge match of Super Bowl XLII. Most of the people I've talked to want this rematch. Can Tom Brady avenge his perfect season? Is Eli Manning an elite quarterback? Can Eli Manning produce his magic one more time? Is the Patriots’ defense the real deal? Can Eli Manning be considered for the Hall of Fame? I believe ESPN is dying for this rematch.
Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers
Grudge match from the 2011 NFL season. The Ravens won the previous game 16-6. Two teams who no one picked to go to the Super Bowl, makes it. Can Joe Flacco proved that he is not a choke artist? Can the Raven’s Defense stop Frank Gore? Is Alex Smith a good quarterback? Who is the better coach between the Harbaugh brothers? Will the 49ers be a scary team next year?
Hopefully these questions can help you decide what team you want to win. Pick one of the options in the poll and explain why.
