I'll See Your Hyperbole ...

My friend and radio partner Mitch Berg goes off the deep end with his Super Bowl prediction this weekend:

In 1940, everyone - everyone - predicted Sammy Baugh’s Washington Redskins were going to beat the Chicago Bears in the NFL Championship game.

Of course, the final result was the Bears dishing out a legendary 73-0 drubbing, a victory that set the stage for the defeat of Naziism. ...

Bears 42

Clots 17.

Of course, one could more easily argue that it set the stage for Pearl Harbor ... but I digress. Historical hysteria aside, the Bears have a strong defense and a good offensive line, but the Colts have Peyton Manning and a re-energized defense that shut down Tom Brady and the Patriots as if they were the Minnesota Vikings in the second half.

If the Rex Grossman that played in the second half against the Saints shows up tomorrow, then the Bears have a chance. If the one that likes to play like a liberal and re-distribute the wealth (and the football) when on offense shows up, then the Colts will cream the Bears.

My prediction: 31-24 Colts.

Oh, and as an answer to Mitch -- this will usher in a new era of peace, understanding, and freedom around the world.
