Super Bowl 41 3/4

I rarely post twice in one day, but then again rarely do events this significant occur.

Several weeks ago The Patriots and Colts played an epic battle thatĀ lived up to its billingĀ as Super Bowl 41 1/2.

Today the 10-1 Green Bay Packers take on the 10-1 Dallas Cowboys in what has to be Super Bowl 41 3/4.

The only loss for the Packers was at home to the Bears, and they basically gave the game away with 5 turnovers. They dominated the game, and simply blew it. The Cowboys only loss came at home to the 11-0 Patriots, who simply had too much firepower.

Bottom line…these teams are d@mn good.

The last time a pair of 10-1 teams met was in 1990, when the Giants and 49ers met in one of the greatest Monday Night games ever played. The were both 10-0, got clocked a week before the matchup, and in the end San Francisco prevailed 7-3. The Giants won the rematch in the NFC Title Game 15-13.

The reason why this game is so special is because these teams, barring any surprises, will meet again in the NFC Title Game this year.

Both of these teams are considered inferior to the Patriots, and to the Colts as well. Time will tell. They are the undisputed kings of the NFC, and it could be a thriller.

Some will say that Brett Favre is 0-8 in Dallas. This is irrelevant, since six of those losses came over a decade ago, when the Cowboys were in the throes of their dynasty. Also, it seemed they always played in Dallas. When they finally played in Green Bay, the Packers throttled them.

Dallas will have the home field, and on paper they do appear to be a better team. Terrell Owens is playing well, and Green Bay has been accused of not having a solid running game. Both quarterbacks have been known to make mistakes and take chances, but both of them are successful and entertaining for the same reason.

Tony Romo in his young career has already been the goat, fumbling the snap in last year’s playoff loss to Seattle. He also has been an inspiration, coming back to beat Buffalo after throwing 5 interceptions.

I could say a million other things, and normally I would, but at this point I am so excited I will let the players do their talking on the field.

I predict Dallas wins, and it may not be that close. Either way, I look forward to the rematch, with the winner of that game going to Super Bowl 42.

For now, as Owens says, “Get your popcorn ready!”

Get ready for some football. It’s game time.

Let’s get it on!

    Should be a great game. I would not be surprised to see Favre and the Packers pull this one out!
