Just another Super Bowl prediction
Maybe its the hangover from watching the Chicago Bears at mid-season when they the NFL's most dominant and scariest team.
Maybe its watching Peyton Manning throw six playoff interceptions. So far.
Maybe its always doubting a dome team in the great outdoors.
But this sure doesn't look like a blowout.
Not unless the Bears are the ones hammering the Indy Colts.
While much of the emphasis has been on Rex Grossman and his statistical deficiencies, not enough has been said about his big play ability.
Again, he reminds me a lot of Jim Plunkett in his Raider days.
Just good enough to make the big play, good enough to win.
The Bears will run the ball, and with two punishing backs, and they won't abandon the run in the second half.
The Colts had better bring their lunch.
Yes, the Colts showed something by coming back to beat the Patriots.
But that said as much about the Pats as the Colts.
Then there's the things you just can't predict, like Ted Ginn Jr. turning his ankle while celebrating with an Ohio St. teammate after returning the opening kick in the BCS championship for a TD.
Ginn didn't play anymore, Troy Smith panicked without his go-to guy and the Buckeyes got swamped.
Something strange will undoubtedly happen on Sunday, and the Bears will handle it better.
So look for the Bears, 27-20, giving football fans another 12 months of Why Can't Peyton Win The Big One.
Let's just hope it all ends by midnight.
