Super Bowl Buzz Kill

Why your team won't win the Super Bowl:

Do you really need any elaboration? It is the Cardinals. They have a new home, a new attitude and a new running back. There is no way this team could lose, right?


And it’s not just a cursed franchise. That is just stupid. There is no such thing as a sports curse. But as The Usual Suspects’ Verbal Kint might describe the Cardinals, “I don’t believe in curses, but I believe in the inability of Dennis Green.

Green is the black Marty Schottenheimer. Think of all the success Green had in Minnesota—and not just in getting his secretary to abort his love child. (It goes without saying that he had better not be giving Matt Leinart any fatherly advice.) Green was pretty good at getting the Vikings to hover around the 9-7 mark, they even went 15-1 in 1998. But no matter how good the Vikings were in the regular season, they always managed to end the season horrifically in the playoffs. It should be no different for the Birds this season.

If they, of course, even make it that far.

Because you know that Edgerrin James—the hot shot free agent signee—will end up with a season-ending injury early in the year because the Birds are cursed.

Other previews: Jets, Browns, Texans, Vikings, Jaguars, Bills, Eagles, Bears, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Falcons, Raven, Titans, Lions, Giants, Saints, Panthers and Bengals

I had been waiting to use that one.

As a Cardinal fan, I'd love 9-7 or 10-6 and a playoff exit. That would be like a super bowl to me
