I’m not sure it’s on the same level as Joe Namath’s guarantee of a Jet win against the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, but Plaxico Burress has come out and made his Super Bowl prediction and, as one would guess, he picks Giants to beat the Patriots by a score of 23-17.
Now, of course, the media will jump all over Plaxico for having the temerity to pick his team to win the game. He and all of the other players have to be humble and say things like “well, we hope to play our best and see what happens, blah, blah, blah…” Let’s give Plax credit for at least standing up for himself and EXPECTING his team to win. That’s what they’re in Arizona for–to win the game!
This shouldn’t be a big deal, but I guarantee you the Boston/New England media will make a big deal out of this.
