INSANE SUPER BOWL SCENARIOS
Here are some unlikely or interesting matchups that could be coming to your TV when the Super Bowl is played this March. Or is it April? Seems to move back every year. Anyway…
Dolphins vs. Falcons. The Falcons’ previous coach bailed and their last QB is jailed. The Falcons won just 4 games last year and by the way, they have a rookie QB. The Fins gave up more points than any other AFC team last year and won just one game. I’ll leave it to you to look it up, but I’ll go ahead and guess that no Super Bowl has ever been played when the combatants combined for just 5 wins the year before.
Patriots vs. Bears. Here in Chicago we thought it fait accompli that the Bears would win a few Super Bowls before the Pats ever sniffed any more success. But since SB XX the Pats have made 6 appearances in the big game while the Bears have just gone back once. Many people wondered if the Pats’ season was dead when Tom Brady got hurt. Now the Pats have scored more points than any other AFC team. This scenario may not even be possible by the morning, but it still registers as insane. (insert Bears joke here, haters)
Colts vs. Giants. Not sure if we really want to see shots of the Manning parents in their suite 427 different times in one evening, but you have to agree that watching two teams quarterbacked by a set of brothers would be historic.
Ravens vs. Falcons. Two rookie QBs in the big game? They might have to start the pregame show on Saturday with all the story lines involved in this matchup.
Cowboys vs. Steelers. Kicking it old school. Classic matchup we have seen before in SB X, XIII and XXX.
Vikings vs. Titans. Battle of the Retreads. Frerotte vs. Collins. Frerotte has played in 2 wild card games, amassing a QB rating of 49.1. Collins may have played the worst game ever by a QB in a Super Bowl: 15-39, 112, 0 TD, 4 INT. Collins will be 36 days from now. Frerotte is 37.
