The one undercurrent for all those folks asking about and interested in early Super Bowl predictions – now that the Thanksgiving turkey has worn off and half of the NFL teams have been mathematically eliminated – is: what about Michael Vick? Could Michael Vick win a Superbowl in his first year back as a starter in the NFL?
I always like to be here to help out with the barbershop arguments, and the answer is: No. Sorry. But Vick will win a Super Bowl eventually. Teams kind of have to be in a groove going into this portion of the season, and Vick’s Eagles don’t fit that bill. But as far as the Vikings’ conference, the NFC, surprisingly everyone might want to keep their eyes on the Chicago Bears. I’m slowly beginning to win over the debate crowd with the message that “defense wins championships.” And just like in 2006, the Bears can once again be called the “Monsters of the Midway” when it comes to defense.
