2011 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Super Bowl Results

And the winner of the 2011 SoB NFL Playoffs Pick 'Em is... ("Pro Wrestling," NES)

Well, that was an exciting game, wasn’t it? The NFC has now won 14 coin tosses in a row (1/16,384, .0061% chance). And between a match-up of two incredibly similar teams, the Green Bay Packers’ dynamic play, coupled with three Pittsburgh turnovers, was enough to eke out a six-point victory, 31-25. Congratulations to Aaron Rodgers for winning the game, the MVP award, and a Chevrolet Camero convertible. Unfortunately, it’s an American car, so, yeah.

We here at SoB were nearly perfect with our picks, with the only one not garnering points being my touchdown total, which prevented me from winning the bronze. At least I finished in the top 50%. Speaking of which, as I’m sure you all want to know, the winner of the 2011 NFL Playoff Pick ‘Em is… Pete. Seriously, Pete, stop winning these things and give the rest of us a chance. Pete’s victory is thanks to some shrewd picks for TD and turnover totals.

So there you have it. Be sure to tune in next September for the next Pick ‘Em (or not, depending on how the negotiations go). And check below for the final standings, and to see how we all did in the final round.

  1. I should try losing at some point; see what that’s like.
