Sunday, February 06, 2005SB: The 5 Things You Will See in Super Bowl XXXIX
On with the final five.
1) A Higher Scoring Game Than Expected: Both teams have very good defenses as did the Panthers and Patriots did last year. However, the offensive play calling was up to the task last year and it will be this year as well. There are few defenses that can stop the two best quarterbacks in the league.
2) Donovan McNabb Will Be the Best Player on the Field: The Patriots have shown that they are too much for the drop-back passing QB, but what about a double threat QB? McNabb will use his speed, he'll move the pocket, he'll make something out of broken plays.
3) A Special Teams Touchdown: My pick is New England's Bethel Johnson on a kickoff.
4) Corey Dillon Will Be Held Under 100 Yards: The Eagles will sell out to the run early and force Brady to make plays through the passing game. Philadelphia has good pass rushers and an All-Pro secondary. This plays into their hands a little better.
5) Andy Reid Will Hold Up the Lombardi Trophy: And celebrate a 35-28 Eagles victory. The Parade is on Tuesday.
