    Packers, Patriots unanimous choices (16/16) for divisional Championship. Packers overwhelming favorite to win Championship no. 14 (9/16). Hard not to like. Who's the guy picking the Cowboys to win it all? I hope he gets on medication real quickly.

    Saints, giants, and 9er fans must be besides themselves.

    Worse than the cowboys pick, who picked the eagles?

    I say they are all wrong on the Super Bowl champion. I think it will be a team no one expects.

    Matt Ryan ...League MVP ?
    With Rodgers/Brees/Newton/Eli/Romo/Flacco/Rivers/Brady/Dalton/Schaub..... idk, it'd require either a lot of injuries or everyone just tanking it or Matty Ice going on a Dan Marino like warpath.... doubt either.

    I'm thinking the Packers/49ers/Patriots/Texans/Ravens/Steelers/Saints/Eagles/Giants/Bears are the only teams swimming in the potential Superbowl 47 winning pool.

    Doubt it. You know how many time they have guessed the Super Bowl winner the last 4 years? Out of the 12, 4 of them picked the Packers to win the year they did.

    Last year, 1 person picked the Giants to be a wild card but not win the NFC title game. 6 picked the Patriots to win it.

    2009, one took the Saints as a WC, going nowhere, 2 took the Colts as a WC going nowhere.

    2008, 10 of the 12 picked the Steelers to be in the playoffs, none of them picked them for the Super Bowl. 2 picked AZ to be in the playoffs.

    So for the past 4 years, they have picked the winner of the Super Bowl 8.3% of the time, and that was only the 4 that picked the Packers. And they have correctly picked one of the participants 20.8% of the time. (The Packers and the Pats) Not good odds. Being picked by the ESPN crew to win the Super Bowl is almost a kiss of death. In 2 of the 4 years they didn't even get one of the teams in the Super Bowl correct.

    Yeah, unfortunately that seems to be the trend, ie last season. And what a let down when you're the expected champions.

    Stupid predictions. ESPN is never right, which is a bad omen for the Packers.

    I know, but even a blind dog finds a bone once in awhile. This could be the year they are all correct. Just sayin'

    They have the talent to win, that's undeniable, but the season could shake out any which way

    And it always does yes. It shook for us all year long, until one egg laid by many of our guys.
    Let's hope ESPN has a lot of guys here proven right come February!

    If I am picking a champion now I would have to go with the most talented team at the start of the season. GB fits the bill. Giants, Saints, Pats, Texans and Ravens are in the mix but have more flaws than we do imo.

    I agree. It, once again, SHOULD be the Packers vs the Patriots in the Super Bowl, like it should have been last year and in the 2007 season. Both times we let the Giants ruin that matchup.

    So you are saying they are due to be right and the Packers should win this year?

    What I am saying is they know no more than you or I. If everyone here made up a list of who would win the divisions and the playoffs/Super Bowl. And they were honest about it, not being homer's. Than we could do just as well as they can. In other words, they don't know crap. They are just guessing. How many teams have made overalls of their roster the past year? No team is playing with the same 53, very few are playing with the same 22 starters. It's all based on what the teams did last year and the people they expected the teams to keep. (Since this came out before the final countdown to 53)

    The real question is which team that was under .500 last year makes it deep into the playoffs?

    1 gazillion variables could change between now and February. So glad that in 8 days the players get to start carving their own future and we can stop having to read projections.
