    And THIS is why I want the Patriots to beat the Giants, and why I hate living in "Giants and/or Jets country".

The more games the Patriots play, the more likely it is that one of these times things won't go their way and they won't be able to pull it off in the end. For instance, would you expect them to be able to win 30 in a row? 25? If not, then you have to concede that the longer their streak gets, the closer they get to a loss.
    I would like to preface my response by stating that I know next to nothing in regards to football specifically, but will in its stead, try to apply my limited knowledge of statitistics to project whether or not the patriots will win the Super Bowl.

    Yes, yes, of course the longer their streak gets, the more likely the possibility that they will eventually lose. But the fact that they've consistently been on this winning streak should go to show that something about this team specifically, and idependent of luck, is responsible for their wins. Whether it be due to the mastery of their coaches, the sheer talent of certain team members, or, on a more broader scale, the ability of each team member to work cooperatively and successfully as a team whole, is up to the experts to decide. But all in all, given their pristine record, this team must be a force to be reckoned with, and thus, a difficult one to beat. *But yeah, I agree with you that just because they happen to be undefeated, doesn't necessarily mean that they're in fact unbeatable.

    Yeah. I don't like that kind of journalism either.

    What's the deal with this?
    "The Pats' 18-0 record is marred by the "Spygate" incident last September, when the team was caught videotaping the New York Jets' hand signals. Since then, The Post has noted the Pats' record with an asterisk for cheating - and the rest of the nation's media has followed."

    So now they're only undefeated because they cheated? That stinks.

    They're actually really "lucky" they got busted in week one instead of say week 12 of the season or a lot of people would be calling for an * if not forfeit.

    I like the Pats by 20. No, I'm not giving anyone 20 but my guess is we're in for another snooze of a Super Bowl.

    I'm hoping it's going to be a high scoring game cause I really don't understand anything about football except touchdowns and interceptions.

    What do you mean, the other aspects of the game don't excite you?

    I think Pats will win by 10.

    On another note, I would much more rather like to see a defensive game. I think the level of domination is much greater when you win 20-0 instead of 40-20.

    Besides I am a Bears fan and I watched the 85 Super Bowl many times. The Bears had one of the best defenses the NFL has ever seen in 85. They won the Super Bowl 52-10.

    I see a Pats victory too, maybe something like 27-17. A game that stays close on the scoreboard but always sort of feels like it's in the Pats' control.

    And not to nitpick, but the Bears won that game 46-10.

    Why are they playing the game so late?

    And who is the half-time entertainment?

    And who is singing the National Anthem?
