The Flyers on Friday gave their predictions for the Super Bowl, which will take place on Sunday in Detroit when the Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers clash for the NFL title.
R.J. Umberger (and Pittsburgh native) - "Steelers, 24-21. I believe they are a better team and Big Ben is a better quarterback. He is going to lead them."
Jeff Carter - "I'll take the Seahawks 27-14 only because R.J. Umberger wants the Steelers to win."
Brian Savage - "Pittsburgh will win 21-14 because Big Ben is a Miami of Ohio alumnus."
Randy Jones - "I'm taking the Steelers 24-17. I think this is Bettis's year."
Freddy Meyer - "I should go with Pittsburgh for R.J.'s sake but he was betting against the Patriots the last couple of years, so I'm going with Seattle. Alexander is going to have a huge game and the Seahawks will win 24-14."
Keith Primeau - "I am a big Jerome Bettis fan. I have to go with the Steelers, 27-21."
Turner Stevenson - "Seattle might not win but they will cover the four-point spread. The only reason I pick Seattle is because my wife is from there and I have to cheer for them."
Mike Richards - "I think Seattle will win 27-20."
Mike Rathje - "Pittsburgh 21-17. One word, Ben."
Eric Desjardins - "I won't predict a score but I'm taking the Pittsburgh Steelers."
Robert Esche - "Seattle 21-18, because I don't like Pittsburgh."
Ken Hitchcock - "Pittsburgh 27-17."
Sami Kapanen - "Pittsburgh. I don't know the score but they are going to win, though."
Mike Knuble - "It is going to be a really close game. I think Pittsburgh is going to pull it out 27-24. Pittsburgh will win but they won't cover the spread."
Simon Gagne - "I don't know why but I like Seattle 21-17. I bet against my dad, he took Pittsburgh. Last weekend I bet him Seattle would win and so I will keep taking my team."
Chris Therien - "Seattle Seahawks 28-24. It will be a close game but I like Seattle's running game better."
Petr Nedved - "I am rooting for the Steelers. To be honest with you, I think the Seahawks have a better team but I'm rooting for the Steelers."
Derian Hatcher - "Pittsburgh, 28-21."
Joni Pitkanen - "21-3, Seattle."
Donald Brashear - "Pittsburgh, 14-12."
Branko Radivojevic - "Pittsburgh is going to take it, probably by seven points."
