Super Bowl XLVI Predictions: New England Patriots v New York Giants – The MSF Team Chimes In

You’ve read all the previews.

You’ve soaked up all the hype.

You know Rob Gronkowski is as human as Greek legend Achilles.

The only thing you don’t know is how it’s going to end. Not a problem. Many of us at MSF have an opinion and think we know exactly how it’s going to go down.

Here are some of our experts’ predictions.

super bowl xlvi predictions - new york giants v new england patriots

Jerod Morris – MSF Founder, Managing Editor

At this point, I trust Eli Manning more in a big game than Tom Brady. Since I think this will be a relatively close game, that splits the difference for me.

I also think that the Giants are simply a bad matchup for New England, regardless of Rob Gronkowski’s health. New York can get pressure with their front four, especially up the middle, which always seems to rattle Brady and make him more inaccurate than normal. And the weakness of the Patriots’ D – the secondary – plays right into the hands of Eli and his trio of great receivers.

As soon as I saw that this was the Super Bowl matchup, I was convinced New York would win. Nothing since then has changed my mind.

Of course, the last time these two teams played in the Super Bowl, the team that was obviously going to win did not. So what the hell does I or anyone else really know?

The Giants are going to blow the Patriots out of the water. With New York’s stellar passing offense and New England’s weak passing defense, expect the Giants to top the Patriots big.

Jonathan Washburn – MSF Senior Writer

I like the Giants 31 – 17. Because I hate Tom Brady and he hasn’t won a ring since the Pats stopped cheating. I don’t care if that is completely devoid of logic.

Keith Mullet – MSF Senior Writer

(Oakland Raiders)

I know the Giants are hot and Eli is playing out of his mind, but there is no way Belichick and Brady let Coughlin and Eli beat them again.

Everyone talks about how bad New England’s pass defense is, but consider that many of the yards they allowed happened while they were up big in games and playing a lax prevent and trying to burn out the clock.

I expect the Patriots to contain the fearsome front line of New York and get out to a healthy lead, only to allow the Giants to score a couple of times late to make the final look respectable.

Bill Belichick won’t lose to the Giants in the Super Bowl twice.

New England 27, NYG 20.  I can’t get away from revenge game angle…

Jim McGrew – MSF Contributor

(Chicago Bears)

All signs point to a New York win in convincing fashion and most of the “experts” agree.

The Giants defense is playing much better now than in the regular season. Their offense is clicking on all cylinders. New England’s defense is susceptible and the cornerbacks are a big concern. Gronkowski is not 100% with a high ankle sprain.

Which makes this the perfect upset opportunity for Belichick and Brady.

Giants 20 …. Jay Cutler 30

And for me…

Amanda Lawson – MSF Featured Columnist

(Green Bay Packers)

Momentum is what carried my beloved Packers through the playoffs last year, and it’s what carried the Giants when they beat the “perfect” Patriots in 2008. Once again, the Giants found the motivation to become a top contending team after their loss to Green Bay in December during the regular season.

Eli Manning will lead the Giants offense to drive over the Patriots defense for another Super Bowl victory. At least Tom Brady will still have his Uggs.

  • Super Bowl 46 Prediction: Giants 33 | Patriots 27

So there you have it. MSF writers are split right down the middle: 4 for the Giants and 4 for the Patriots (plus Tyler and his Jay Cutler prediction). What do you think?

In contrast, a lot of excitement was created recently when the US, Massachusetts-based, Advanced Cell Research (ATC), claimed in a paper published in Nature that it had created ESCs without destroying the embryos, as this would seem to remove the principal objection to stem-cell research.
