Editor's Note--Well, we all thought Green Bay was a machine. The real machine seems to be in the "JO-JA DOME". New England stomped Pittsburgh and with that trickeration at the end of the game, with the Stillers going for a "meaningless" 2 pointer (AND getting it!), to make Big D 1-2 on the weekend. This time it's for all the marbles. The big picture if you will. Sorry this is late, but there was a lot of studying time to be done. And a lot of time in Vegas. Yep. That's where we are. Attending large parties. But enough about us. We need a Super Bowl Pick or Picks. Oh Big D?!?!-R.B.
Well, Richie, first off, we'd like to be the first ones to congratulate you on your qualifying tournament success On Saturday, and an entry into the 2017 Horse Players World Series Tournament to be held in Las Vegas this March 30-April 1. And this ain't the first time you qualified.! Well done!
Now on to the football. Saw an interesting article the other day in the Wall Street Journal (Yes we look at ALL markets.) It was in the sports section, however. It talked about how 1) the Pats played the stinkiest QBs by QB rating in the league by far this year, and 2) did nothing special against those bad QBs. (I.e. Those QBs had their average crappy game like they did versus the other teams in the other games). So MATTY ICE RYAN is not a bad QB. Some might argue right now he's the BEST.
The article then says if ICE has his "average" game in the Big Game, that's a 119 QB Rating. QBs who have had a 119 Rating or better in a Super Bowl? They are 11-0.
You might say "awww Big D, you can't just let one article stop you from the YUGE friends of President Trump, aka the Belicheck and Brady machine". To which we respond, "the article helped pal, but we thought this almost right after the games 2 Sundays ago".
We thought Green Bay was a wrecking ball, and look what they got when they visited "JO-JA". Seattle too. Sure, the Pats beat up on Houston and Pittsburgh, but there seems to be something brewing in HOTLANTA this season baby....
In 6 Super Bowls, Tawmmmm Brady has 14 TD passes and 3 interceptions. Not bad. Not bad at all. He is also 4-2 in those games. AND almost ALL of which were pretty close games. RYAN hasn't been there but history also shows that first time Super Bowl QBs are actually about 50-50 in winning the Big Game. So, that's really no factor. They also say defense wins championships. The ATLANTA defense is a bit better here handsomes.
The PICKS? ATLANTA at 1.3-1 to win the game OUTRIGHT (Remember the points rarely matter in the Supe, so if you like the underdog? Take em to win outright) AND OVER 58! You don't scare us bookmaker with the highest total in Super Bowl history. These teams can and will score. Just the FALCONS will score mawwwwww! We see EVERY picture. Big or small.
So the Super Duper happy recap: ATLANTA 1.3-1 to win straight up versus the Pats, and OVER 58!!
Speaking of Every picture.....this cat might not be able to write these lyrics today and get away with it. Maybe unless he was a rapper.....Have a SUPER day, enjoy the music, and enjoy the gaaaaame! Gooooooo!
