PFT on NBCSN looks at Pats, Packers as Super Bowl teams

I’ve picked the Patriots and the Packers to make it to the Super Bowl this year. For Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, we want to know whether you agree with me on either or both of the picks.

Pick an outcome below and tune in at 6:00 p.m. ET for the first ever addition of the show with Rodney Harrison, Paul Burmeister, and yours truly in the same place at the same time.

We’ll be getting you ready for Thursday night’s opener and the rest of Week One from Gillette Stadium, site of the Steelers-Pats game.

  1. Did you know the NFL will add a gold band around the team logos on the superbowl teams’ helmets? Could you imagine how awful that would look on the Patriots helmet, if they make it (I don’t think they will).

  2. Losing Jordy Nelson is a major blow to the Packers. He is the most underrated great player in the NFL. The Seahawks are in trouble if they dont get Kam Chancellor back on the field. Dude is a beast.

    Pats are a solid pick for the AFC. Broncos stink, Colts stink, Steelers stink, Ravens could give the Patriots a tough battle.

  3. I hope your right florio. Really would dig another shot at the SB after Rogers kinda threw it away last year at the last minute. Losing jordey hurts. Not liking our backup qb situaish either. But weirder things have happened in wisconson! GO PACK!!!!

  4. Notice how the Pat’s get a PASS every year by coming from a non competitive division, and weaker opponents and yet all you hear is how their fans say they’re so “great” because they’ve won 4 SB’s by a combined total of 13 points. Whatever.

    Even as the Pat’s get worse, with their best DB’s gone, Pat’s are still predicted to win. Good…that just more pressure on them to be the favorite….as well they should be, for their competition is weak…it’s how the Pat’s win their division since when, 2001?

  5. I am loving this. ALL of the pressure and expectations are now on Green Bay. It’s all OFF of US now.

    My team THRIVES on disrespect!

    Arizona vs New England.
    ———
    Notice how the Pat’s fan wants no part of a Seattle rematch now that Seattle has offensive potential, AND it’s D-line is far superior to last year.

    Keep dreamin’ Pat’s…Arizona will not win the NFC West. It’s Seattle’s division to lose, not AZ. No disrespect AZ fans.

  7. In 2001, the Chicago Bears finished 13-3. Two of the three losses were at the hands of the Packers. In 2007, the Packers finished 13-3. Two of their three losses were at the hands of the Chicago Bears.

    The Packers would win this going away on paper. But this rivalry deserves the knock-down, drag-out battle on the field we should see on Sunday.

  8. Pats vs Vikings? The Vikings won’t even be in the playoffs. The Packers are going to win the division (again) with Detroit hot on their heels (again).

    I look for the Vikings to improve on last year’s record, though… all the way up to 8 – 8. With that, they’ll also fall back to their customary, and rightful, place at the bottom of the NFCN barrel as John Fox’s long tradition of winning will easily outshine Zimmer’s .438 win percentage.

  9. Just lol…Really??? A lot of things can happen over the course of a season…..I wouldn’t even attempt to pick who makes it to the SB; however, I will say I do not think it will be the Pats this year 🙂

  10. I’m shocked you didn’t pick the Vikings, their fans have been all over this site since March predicted how Bridgewater is going to lead them to the promise land after regaining the services of their child beating RB, Flush Patterson is going to emerge as a top 5 WR and they will now win all those close games they choked in last year.

    About as delusionsal as putting your lottery ticket down as your first payment on a new home.

  11. Green Bay: All-Pro QB, division II defense.

    Blowing a 19-7 lead in the NFC Championship in under 3 minutes has convinced many that they’re ready for the next step.

    As long as Rodgers can keep his passes down, so more WRs don’t shred their ACLs reaching for the over-throws, they will be competitive.

    And scoring 35+ ppg is a must, as their defense could be on a level below Oakland Raiders-horrible.

  12. This guy is too embarrassed to say “Vikings” on a league-wide thread, but spews this crap on every Packer story he possibly can.

  13. You don’t win 4 SB’s and 6 AFC Championships 1n 15 years unless you’re great (again, it never matters how many points you win them by, that’s a useless argument–just that you win them)

    It’s about winning and losing, and the Patriots have won more than any other team over a longer period of time than them all. Until further notice, they’ve earned the right to have people pick them to go all the way.

  14. A Packers/Patriots SB would definitely be an interesting matchup. Green Bay won SBs I, II, XXXI, and XLV. New England “won” SBs XXXVI*, XXXVIII*, XXXIX*, and XLIX*. The only question is whether NE can successfully tape GB’s signals and get the balls deflated in the restroom without getting caught.

  15. “You don’t win 4 SB’s and 6 AFC Championships 1n 15 years unless you’re great (again, it never matters how many points you win them by, that’s a useless argument–just that you win them)”

    …or, unless you use rampant, systematic cheating. Sorry Pats apologists, every single victory and ring since 2000 is suspect. Put a big asterisk next to every SB win in that timeframe, everyone knows they’re tainted.

  16. I want it to be the Vikings vs Colts, but realistically the Vikes only make it to the Championship round and lose to Seattle or Dallas in Seattle/Dallas.

    Either Rodgers gets hurt early in the season and the Packers go 4-12, and/or their defense gets exploited and they end up 5-11.

  17. Hey Mike how many spy cams have you counted there at Gillette Stadium. I see two big ones mounted high up over the big team logo.

  18. It’s such an honor to be a fan of either of these two marquis NFL teams, as they’re always in the mix year after year.

    And I can also understand how that must eat away at some of the peasants.

    Well said. Jealousy breeds contempt.

  20. Note to Vikings and their fans:

    Before you can advance to the Super Bowl and maybe take home the Lombardi trophy, first you’ve got to defeat teams with better than .500 records.

    Work on that for now.
