Not the Steelers...they're second at 7-1. A team that didn't even make the playoffs is the favorite. Any guess which team? :roll:

Brady’s Patriots Favored to Win 2010 Super Bowl, Oddsmakers Say

By Larry DiTore

Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The New England Patriots, who failed to make the National Football League playoffs this season, are favored to win the Super Bowl next year by Las Vegas oddsmakers.

The Patriots, with former Most Valuable Player Tom Brady’s probable return at quarterback after a knee injury sidelined him for most of the season, are 6-1 favorites to win the NFL championship on Feb. 7, 2010, according to Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which advises casinos on betting lines. The team was undefeated last season until losing the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.

“The Patriots coming into this year were overwhelming favorites based on what they did last year,” said Mike Seba, Sports Consultants’ senior oddsmaker. “They’re going to have pretty much the same team as long as Brady comes back, so they should be the favorites again.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who are 6 1/2-point favorites against the Arizona Cardinals in the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, are second to New England for next year’s game at 7-1. The Giants and Indianapolis Colts are 8-1.

The Patriots this season became only the second team in NFL history to miss the playoffs after finishing with an 11-5 record. Brady was sidelined with a season-ending knee injury in the team’s opener in September.

Matt Cassel filled in and threw for 3,693 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, as the Patriots narrowly missed the postseason. New England won three of the past seven Super Bowls with Brady at quarterback.

The Dallas Cowboys have 9-1 odds to win the 2010 Super Bowl, while the Baltimore Ravens, who lost to the Steelers in the American Football Conference championship game, are 11-1. The Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans, all playoffs teams this season, have 12-1 odds.

TEAM ODDS:
New England Patriots 6-1 Pittsburgh Steelers 7-1 New York Giants 8-1 Indianapolis Colts 8-1 Dallas Cowboys 9-1 Baltimore Ravens 11-1 Carolina Panthers 12-1 Philadelphia Eagles 12-1 Tennessee Titans 12-1 San Diego Chargers 14-1 Arizona Cardinals 15-1 Atlanta Falcons 16-1 New Orleans Saints 18-1 Green Bay Packers 20-1 Minnesota Vikings 22-1 Miami Dolphins 25-1 Washington Redskins 25-1 New York Jets 28-1 Chicago Bears 28-1 Jacksonville Jaguars 30-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35-1 Denver Broncos 35-1 Houston Texans 40-1 San Francisco 49ers 40-1 Buffalo Bills 50-1 Seattle Seahawks 60-1 Cleveland Browns 60-1 Cincinnati Bengals 75-1 St. Louis Rams 100-1 Kansas City Chiefs 100-1 Oakland Raiders 100-1 Detroit Lions 150-1

Can't see how they'd have "pretty much the same team" as the year they lost to the Giants. Weren't some of their D-backs geriatrics on life support even back then? Like "Senior" Seau, and Bruschi, etc.

Also, is Randy Moss signed for sure?

Also, isn't there O-line just cr*p?

For my money, I think Men of Steel are more likely to win it next year ... just like this year!

I seriously thought it was going to say the Browns but they have been beaten back to 60-1.

On SI's website in the football section they had an article from Don Banks about how the Pats will be back next year. I emailed him saying can't you just spend the next two weeks enjoying the SB without fawning over the Pats? You can get back to that Feb. 2

I don't know....I think we might be the lock for defending our Super Bowl Championship in 2010.

Ever since the game ended I have had a weird feeling about coincidences in this run to the Super Bowl, ala Kennedy/Lincoln (http://www.orwelltoday.com/jfkcoincidences.shtml) coincidences.....for instance:

Number #43 made the play that punched our ticket to Super Bowl XLIII...coincidence?!?!?!?!...or something we can't explain at this time?

Out first Super Bowl was SB IX......this year is 2009.....coincidence?!?!?!?!?!...or something we can't explain at this time?

Our next win in a Super Bowl was SB X......next year is 2010....coincidence?!?!?!?!!!...or something we can't explain at this time?


Right now that's all I got.....but it's a start. :wink: :D

Kennedy/Lincoln (http://www.orwelltoday.com/jfkcoincidences.shtml) coincidences

This is the biggest Lincoln/Kennedy coincidence I could think of:

Our chances of repeating are very good if we can score some changes on the OL, keep the D intact and have a good post-SB draft with players who might actually stand a chance of playing a bit next season.

Of course, we need to lock in this win...it's why the game is being played.
