Separate from any bias or outside influence, the following are real, honest predictions for the 2010 NFL season.

Super Bowl XLV

February 6, 2011

Baltimore Ravens vs. Green Bay Packers

I know, I know. I didn’t predict a Super Bowl winner. I’m trying my best to be un-biased in this analysis, and I still can’t find a clear-cut edge for either team. Of course, all of these predictions are subject to each team remaining relatively healthy throughout the regular season and the playoffs.

But I won’t leave you without a little nugget.

The Ravens have a better, more versatile run game than do the Packers. The Packers have a better quarterback; one who has handled adversity, on and off of the field, often and well throughout his career.

If the Ravens win, Terrell Suggs will be the MVP of Super Bowl XLV. Sugg’s stat line: 7 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 1 pass defensed.

If the Packers win, Aaron Rodgers will be the MVP of Super Bowl XLV. Rodger’s stat line: 26/40, 311 yards, 2 TD, 0 INT; 4 rushes, 18 yards, 1 TD.

Whatever happens in 2010 (& 2011), this season is shaping up to be another classic.

Thanks for reading.
