Clearly, Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe has been reading PFT. He noticed that two of our four writers making Super Bowl predictions had the Packers winning it all.
That’s why he plans to watch his division rivals on Sunday against the Eagles.
“You’ve got to watch a team like the Packers — they’re the new
Cowboys,” Shiancoe sarcastically told Yahoo’s Michael Silver after the Vikings loss last night. “Everybody’s jumping
on their jock, like they’ve actually gone to the Super Bowl, and won it. Give them credit. They did good in the preseason. I mean, good. Good job. That’s good stuff.”
Classic. I picked the Packers to win the Super Bowl, but wasn’t especially confident in picking them this Sunday against Philadelphia. It sounds like Shiancoe is thinking the same way.
“You know what, Philly’s defense is pretty good, too,” Shiancoe said. “It always is. We’ll see how [the Packers] fare against them.”
