I know some think this is bad luck, but the Packers are going to win the Super Bowl this weekend. No disrespect to the Steelers, but the Packers are in perfect position to bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Green Bay. Let me explain.
Before the postseason started, I told anyone who would listen to me that there was only one team that really worried me in the playoffs. The Chicago Bears. I was delighted when Minnesota beat Philadelphia and removed the scenario of Green Bay traveling to Soldier Field in the first week of the playoffs. I don’t necessarily believe that Chicago was the best team in the NFL (that distinction clearly belonged to New England), but they were the worst match up for the Packers. The Cover 2, the way they can force turnovers, the superior special teams, Forte, Peppers, their ability to win close games scared me. Luckily, the Packers survived two weeks ago and now play Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl.
Now, why am I so confident about the Packers on Sunday?
