Credit Jim Nantz for predicting the Superbowl in Week 1 on CBS.

Maybe he knows somthing we don't know? Do we have a Schavonie in the NFL?

I'd much rather for once see one of those "experts" fess up for being wrong. I hate that they can't jump high enough at the opportunity to say "I told you so," but then when they are horribly wrong, nothing is said about it. I think I know of two people who picked the Bucs to win. But that will be forgotten next week when it comes time for the analysts to go on.

To be fair, they played Deion, Dan Marino, and Boomer getting their picks wrong, along with Nantz getting his right.

(Besides, picking two teams to go to the Super Bowl at week 1 is pretty much guessing, it's luck, not skill)

I can't stand any of the guys on the CBS NFL show. I'm ok with Jim Nantz but the others are just unbearable.


Dan Marino: He's a lunkhead.

Deion Sanders: Well he's Deion.

Boomer Esaison: Now this guy really gets on my nerves. He is just totally unaware that the Tennessee Titans are a good football team. I have watched all year and he hasn't said one good thing about them and he always picks whoever is playing the Titans it seems like.

And another thing, he has been giving Peyton Manning the rub all year and I think he predicted Peyton to have 2 300 plus yards games against the Titans this season.


Either he doesn't like the Titans or he likes chokers.

Yes but everyone picked against the Bucs a week ago, and how many people do you think will talk about that?

But the question is, did Jim pull a Mickelson and make a bet before the season?

According to the laws of probability, there are 256 different possible matchups the Super Bowl could have. There are even less if you discount teams that would have needed a miracle to make it, even at the beginning of the season (Bengals, Texans). I think it's safe to say that there were more than 256 sportscasters/writers who made pre-season predictions, so odds are that someone had to have gotten it right. Jim Nantz is lucky that it's him.

Actually, if you watch more often, Boomer likes himself a lot; nine times out of ten, he always has to throw *his* heyday in.

And Deion is an Eric Dickerson-sideline-wannabe. He's not as bad as Eric. ;)

Of course Nantz was the rare guy to get it ride when you consider that 77% of the prognosticators picked the Rams to win the NFC...

People in general- with the exception of the writer himself- from the first group. The writer, all alone, forms the second and most impportant group. Surely ths is the weirderst and most conceited notion that ever entered a human brain!"

Hell, if I had picked Bucs/Raiders, I'd be bragging about it, too.

Jim Nantz has had us cracking up for weeks now since his "Message To/From America" intro. While explaining the premise (go to Circuit City, talk into the camera, say some nice words for the troops for the holidays) he decided to give us his version.

"For example, here's mine..." is what he said, like we're too stupid to know how to tape a video message in front of a camera.

We've been saying "for example, here's mine..." for over a month now.

Nantz really needs to stick to golf. He's not a football kind of guy.
