Fact is the Bears had it easy getting to the superbowl. They are the only respectable team in the NFC. The AFC had 4 strong contenders this year and I believe any of the 4 of them would beat the Bears in the big game.
I'm actually expecting a high scoring game. I think Rex has a great game playing against a defense that he is used to seeing and the same goes for Manning. The Colts just have more offensive talent to put points on the board in a shootout.
You realize that we played with the Patriots out East right? :?
What does that prove? The Bears lost that game. If anything it proves my point that the 4th best team in the AFC is better than the only good team in the NFC.
It proves that they can hang in with the cream of the crop in the AFC, on the road, with terrible play from their quarterback.
Pick the score and the winner of the big game. Closest one to the right score with the right winner gets some sort of prize. U have til the day of the big game to make this all important decision. So lets see some predictions.
This is what I have so far.
Smooth Criminal:31 - 24 Colts
hugegmenfan:Colts 23 Bears 20
bored of education:Colts-26
Raider Nation:27-20 Colts
Bighead734:Bears - 23
Colts - 21
TIP:Bears 35 Colts 17
bmoreravens5289:BEARS will win the Superbowl 26-17!!!!
4th best? Last time I checked the top 2 teams in the AFC lost in the playoffs in the 2nd round at home. So to me, it looked like those supposed "great" AFC teams were...
A) Overrated to begin with
B) Unable to show up in the big game
C) Regular season pretenders
As much as you bash the NFC, at least our top 2 teams held court. Hell, every team held court in the playoffs this year. Which meant that the best ranked team came away with the W each game.
Its alot easier to hold court against the Eagles and Hawks than against the Colts and Pats. If things were reversed and the 2 raod AFC teams played the NFC home teams and the 2 home AFC teams hosted the raod NFC it could easily be all AFC teams in the championship round.
"We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."
