    Select few appear to have shot at Super Bowl XLIV

    [size=14pt]Select few appear to have shot at Super Bowl XLIV[/size]

    NFL.com's panel of experts take a crack at predicting what might transpire in the second half of the 2009 season.

    PS: 2 out of 5 have the Vikings winning the Super Bowl.

    Re: Select few appear to have shot at Super Bowl XLIV

    No love for the Bengals in the AFC?

    Look who the beat or in Denver's case should have beat.
    If they take down the Steelers for the 2nd time this coming weekend will someone give them some respect.

    Except for Denver, their only loss has been to HOU, who just about beat the Colts.

    Just look at their schedule.... only ONE team with a losing record and are 4-0 in their division.

    Pats have faced 4 teams with losing records and PIT 3 teams.

    Bengals are tough and with OAK, CLE, DET, KC, NYJ on their schedule they will vie for HFA

    Yeah ... I am shocked by the lack of respect the Bengals are getting. I think people are just writing them off as the Bengals.

    They swept the Ravens ... a team a couple of weeks ago everyone around here was acting like was a Super Bowl team we were about to play.

    The Bengals simply keep winning ... and even if they lose to the Steelers this weekend are in good shape because they are going to finish 5-1 in their division and the Steelers very easily could lose one to the Ravens.

    Don't sleep on the Bengals.

    By the way ... I love that none of these guys think that the Saints will win it all.

    Re: Select few appear to have shot at Super Bowl XLIV

    I hate, hate, HATE it when people jinx us!! I don't want us to be under the spotlight, I'd rather be a Darkhorse team that makes a surprise run. I just hate being a favorite (by the media mostly) because of being a Viking fan all my life; I know that we can lose to any team on any given Sunday. It sucks because deep down I have a feeling that we could beat any team in the league, but when shows like Sportscenter or NFL Total Access say how good we are I just know that the Vikings players who watch the exact same show will get overconfident and play like dung. It's just a conspiracy theory I guess, but it becomes too painful after a tough loss. I think being a fan of this team has taken years off my life.




    Surprised no one picked the Colts to even go to the Super Bowl.

    lol at Jason La Canfora.

    Brett Favre drops off. Wear and tear, bumps and bruises, age, having to play outdoors in the cold ... all of that is very real.
    We only have 1 cold weather game.

    You can't have Favre on the team and avoid the spotlight or be a darkhorse.

    The team knew it, they've embrassed it, and they will use it to win.

    Yeah, with Favre there’s no way we can avoid so many eyes watching us every week for good or bad.
    I’ve always thought the Vikes do best when we’re underrated.
    Still, I think the last two games we’ve played are the best games in a long time and if the team continues to mature we have a legitimate shot to go all the way this year.

    No running game.
    Defensive secondary is riddled with injuries.
    Brady may have another 4-5 TD day on Sunday against those 2 rookies.
    ...Rodgers had to hold on the ball longer, giving players like Jared "I am completely insane and will literally eat your children" Allen time to sack Rodgers again.And again. And again. Actually I think Rodgers may have nightmares about Jared Allen the rest of the year.

    Eh ... bottom line is it does not matter.

    We need to come to play regardless.

    I would prefer not to be a dark horse. It is more fun to be the favorite ... take everybody's best shot and win anyway.
