Even The Colts Ex Coach Failed This Weekend

Let's keep piling it on the Colts, because it's easy, and realllly fun. Ex coach and hater-of-the-gays Tony Dungy was asked his prediction of the Super Bowl last week and this was his response:

“I believe that if they’re in the game Sunday and they need to drive to win the game, he’s going to do it. I don’t think the game’s going to come down to that. I think they’re going to be so far ahead that people are going to say, ‘Oh, ho-hum, he played a good game, they won by two scores, the Colts won their second championship.’ He’s going to have those rings Sunday night. I don’t think it’s going to be close. Minnesota is playing in New Orleans, they turn the ball over five times, have two or three stupid penalties and still lose in overtime. I don’t see how it’s going to be close. The Colts aren’t going to turn it over seven times.

WOOOOOOO doggie, was he wrong! Now, it's really easy to pick apart analysts and their picks (hell, I bet Rodney Harrison would have picked the Pats to win last night) but this one is just too easy. Does he think a little too highly of his old team? Probably. I love that he says the Saints would lose because they barely beat the Vikings. Hey guess what? The Colts were tied with the Jets after the first half, the same Jets who barely made the playoffs, and had Mark Sanchez at QB. Irregardless, the Colts lost, Manning lost, and again life is the way it should be.

Lucky for the Colts, their Super Bowl loss will be hidden amongst the hysteria of New Orleans.

Considering the situation (Pats not being there), there is no better feeling today than knowing that Peyton Almighty threw the pick six to end the game...

For the record, that's the same way two other 'recent' Super Bowls ended. The two quarterbacks?

Neil O'Donnell and Rex Grossman.

And people thought Brady and Montana had company...
