A look back on preseason Super Bowl Predictions
AFC Champ: 56% of experts and 44% of fans did pick the Colts
NFC Champ: 1 expert and 8% of fans picked the Bears
Let's take a look at some of the experts preseason predictions:
Sports Illustrated: Panthers over Dolphins
SI's Peter King: Cowboys over Colts
NFL.com Vic Carucci: Panthers ... rest of NFL.com Picks
Bill Simmons: Patriots over Eagles
Fox Sports Adam Schein: Panthers over Bengals
ESPN MAG: Dolphins
Tom Jackson: Colts over Panthers
Sean Salisbury: Panthers over Colts
John Clayton: Colts over Seahawks
Joe Theismann: Colts over Panthers
Complete ESPN Picks
Now I'm not really at liberty to give any of these guys a hard time, I did pick the Broncos vs Falcons (gag). But I too take some pleasure in noting Sports Illustrated and ESPN the Mag's selections. Keep that in mind come next August.
So who's the one expert (we can call him that) who picked the SB XLI matchup correctly: Mr Dan Shanoff. Nice work Dan! It would only make sense that once he parted ways with the WWL he was able to predict more accurately (how bout them Saints). Note: Shanoff picked the Colts over Bears. Damn!
Big congrats as well to our own fan Kerri, who was the only one at the time to have the same foresight.
