None of those surveyed hit a home run but some did reasonably well.
- Nobody picked a Bears-Colts matchup in the Super Bowl.
- Nobody picked the Bears to appear in, much less win, the Super Bowl.
- Several of us picked the Colts to win the Super Bowl: “Experts” Pat Kirwan, Gil Brandt, Michael Wilbon and Adam Schefter and bloggers Mark Hasty and myself. Steven Taylor picked the Colts to appear in the Super Bowl and lose to the Dallas Cowboys.
The worst preseason picks:
- ESPN’s team of experts picked the Carolina Panthers to beat the Miami Dolphins in the Super Bowl. Neither team made the playoffs.
- The worst blogger prognosticator was Bill Jempty, who had the Cincinnati Bengals beating the New York Giants.
Again, neither team made the playoffs.The Panthers failed to make the playoffs and the Giants lost in the Wild Card round.
- Honorable mention: NFL.com expert Vic Caruci also picked the Carolina Panthers, who (as I may have mentioned) didn’t make the playoffs, to win the Super Bowl. He did not name their opponent.
It seems that the amateurs are about as good as the experts in predicting the outcome of long NFL seasons.
