It’s just Christmas morning today, or maybe even better, today NFL football is back! Opening day, a day filled with excitement around the league. A day where 31 teams are still hopeful their team can win the big game and become the next super bowl champion.

I of course say 31 because here in negative Miami most fans have the Dolphins as a 5-11 team or worse and hope is a hard thing to find. That being said there is still excitement over rookie Ryan Tannehill and the small glimmer of hope maybe this team will surprise us all and pull it together.

That being said today is the day where people start revealing their super bowl picks, so here at Phins Phocus we thought we would do the same.

Green Bay over Pittsburg

I went chalk with Green Bay taking the most popular team but I think Aaron Rogers is the best player in the NFL right now and has a sour taste in his mouth that will lead him back to glory and a 2nd Super bowl championship. Let’s not forget the Packers only lost 1 game last year.  I am not into picking the Texans just because my gut says they won’t be able to get over the hump,  I hate the Patriots more than anything so refuse to put them back there. So by process of elimination I took the best run organization in pro sports perhaps. Big Ben is a winner and has the weapons to bring the Steelers back to the big game.

Super Bowl rematch with the same results.
