It is less than 48 hours until the Super Bowl and most football fans can't wait for the big game. I am in New York City but I am far from being a Giants fan. Everyone is asking me which team I like to win and I can't see the Patriots winning the game. Yes I am picking the Giants to win.
The way I see the game unfolding I see Tom Brady not having much time to make the throws he needs. I can see the Giants pass rush knocking Tom Brady down over and over again. It is hard to complete a pass when you are laying on your ass. I can see the Giants linebackers containing the New England Tight ends and the Giants secondary having no problems covering the wide receivers on the outside.
The Giants offense has been hitting on all cylinders lately and the Patriots defense well to put it mildly are old and they suck. Sorry Pats fans but they are like the 25th best defense in the NFL. There is no hiding this fact and when you add in that they play Miami and the Jets twice a year imagine how bad they really are. (Yes I hate the Jets)
I am predicting that the Giants will win the game 31 – 20 and it will never be a close game. The Patriots might score the first points of the game but after that it will be all Giants. The Giants have a better running game and I am sure Tom Coughlins plan is to keep the ball out of Tom Brady's hands as much as possible. This will happen by running the ball over and over again.
Let's talk about the Quarterbacks, If you were starting a team tomorrow many people would pick Tom Brady over Eli Manning. This game here Eli has a secret weapon as he has his brother Peyton who plays the Patriots often and knows their system well. Eli Manning has been on fire throughout the playoffs and I see him having no problems with the Patriots secondary. It is going to be tough for the Patriots to get to Eli.
So there you have my opinion on the big game. I would love to hear what you think will happen on Super Bowl Sunday.
