All Your ESPN Expert Predictions In One Place!

Friday, February 01, 2008


Predictions are always fun right? You say something ridiculous and no one ever calls you out on it. Like when I said the 9ers were going to make the playoffs. Well ESPN has gathered some of it's finest for their Super Bowl predictions and there are some hilarious ones in there.

Let's take a look shall we?

Jeffri Chadiha: Giants, 24-23
John Clayton: Patriots, 38-24
Matt Mosley: Patriots, 31-17
Len Pasquarelli: Patriots, 31-20
Mike Sando: Patriots, 30-20
Greg Garber: Patriots 38-21
Gregg Easterbrook: Giants 20-19
Jemele Hill: Patriots, 38-31
Bill Simmons: Patriots: 42-17

....and my personal favorite....

Wright Thompson: Giants 35-3 (Note to all those who think I've lost my mind: This.Is.A.Joke.)
Ah good times. There's a bunch of editors and other folks I've never heard of, but there's nothing like Bill Simmons giving the other team a chance.

What's my prediction you ask? Umm....34-14 Pats....Sorry but I'm with Bill on this one. Anyone think differently???

(P.S.- It's nice to see Planters' sponsorship dollars going to the most worthwhile reports on ESPN.com)

31-20...giants may keep it close in first, but brady is too strong.

giants 30 - asshats 24 (and the dick who predicted 42-17 jumps off a roof to his demise)

g'men score TD late to go up by 6 and the a-holes don't convert on a 4th down inside the giants 35 with under a minute to go.

and the world breathes a deep sigh of relief.

24-14, Pats. Giants' D makes a better showing than most expect, roughing up Brady and forcing turnovers, but two crucial Giants' turnovers (Brandon Jacobs fumble + Eli interception, returned for TD) in the 4th seal their fate.

who's Jeffri, Matt, Mike, Gregg, Jemele and Wright?
They must anchor the 2am Sportscenter. Never seen or heard of them.

"who's Jeffri, Matt, Mike, Gregg, Jemele and Wright?
They must write for ESPN.com. Never seen or heard of them."

Fixed.

Much as it pains me to say, 28-20 Pats, only so I can see Mercury Morris cry.

Zing.

Damn, you're one more good comment from getting a Deadspin account, whoever the Hell you are. Creative name or not, I just try to make sure that whatever salient point I make (blind squirrel, eh, Anon?) on this site isn't lost in a sea of comments like yours.

The Pats don't lose when they play a team twice in a season, and especially when Belichick has 2 weeks to plan.

Pats 35, Little Giants 14

Easterbrook is like the anti-Simmons. Figures he'd go with the Giants.
