My AFC Championship Game Prediction
You may have turned to this website to get a last-minute, in depth analysis of the Patriots/Broncos matchup, and if you did I’m very sorry. It would mean that the rumors I’d heard of the media blackout were true. I’ve been steering clear of Patriots football, looking forward to the Sochi Olympics and March Madness and all that instead, but I just assumed it would have garnered enough interest in the casual football fan that ESPN would have mentioned it in passing. Where's the drama? Where’s the hype around the whole “Brady/Manning” thing?
Of course, I know enough about the matchup to break it down for you. Which I will eventually do.
Also, I consulted a futurist yesterday, who told me right out of the gate (in the waiting room before my appointment even started!) that Tom Brady is going to QB the Patriots into his late 40s! And get something like 10 rings when it’s all said and done. That’s awesome! And it’s why seeing a futurist is so great. Because sometimes they give you pretty key information just as an aside, like how a particular stocks is going to do over the next two years. Helpful, needless to say.
But back to the AFC Championship game, here’s what you need to know: it’s going to come down to whether Brady wants to start screwing with people with his signal calling at the line of scrimmage by yelling “Omaha, Omaha!” to get into everyone’s heads, and maybe ignite a few unexpected ripples of laughter in the Broncos secondary. If he does, the Patriots win. If he doesn’t, then it's goiing to depend on whether Manning tries to make the Patriots defense laugh by pointing to this guy or that and saying "Number Fifty Two's the Mike! No, he's the Tom! No he's the Dick!"
