The New England Patriots and the New York Giants. Blah!
I've seen this game before, but this time there's no "Will the Patriots have a perfect season?" or "Will Eli win a title like his brother did?" It's the same game without the drama.
So now we're stuck with another east coast game. There's no way around it, either Brady or a Manning is going to win the whole thing. And that means more Brady and Manning on prime time next season.
It could have been Harbaugh versus Harbaugh — a Civil War game! But the Baltimore kicker and the San Francisco punt returner apparently had vacation plans they couldn't get out of. Don't worry fellas. If my wife booked a hotel room months in advance even a Super Bowl wouldn't get me out of trouble if I skipped that trip.
So there's no time like the present to figure out a way for my Chicago Bears to get to this game next season. Yes, they have a new General Manager (a big sarcastic "Yah!"). And yes, they have a new guy calling the offensive plays (Again, "Yah!"). But we know how to do it, right? The arm chair quarterbacks can figure this out.
Tell us your plan on getting your team to the Super Bowl next year. Does it involve a nice pep talk? New players? Maybe a major injury to someone named Rodgers?
And are you watching the game or just the commercials?
If I have to sit through four hours of Brady and Manning there better be E*Trade babies to keep me entertained.
