The NFL on CBS made their annual Super Bowl predictions and after the Steelers opener against the Ravens and the Falcons loss to Bears. May be some revisiting of the predictions will come next week.

So here they are:


DAN MARINO:  Pittsburgh-Green Bay

BILL COWHER: Pittsburgh-Atlanta

SHANNON SHARPE: San Diego-Green Bay

BOOMER ESIASON: New England-Green Bay

Here are some of the highlights from the gang at FOX

During FOX NFL SUNDAY new segment DOUBLE COVERAGE, analysts Jimmy Johnson, Michael Strahan and Howie Long weigh-in on whether Michael Vick was worth the mega contract he signed with the Eagles this season:

Johnson:  “Absolutely yes.  He’s the most exciting player in the entire NFL and with Vick, you’ve got a shot in every single ballgame.  You just ask any franchise that doesn’t have an outstanding quarterback and they’ll pay whatever it takes to get Vick.”

Strahan:  “I don’t think so.  I played against Michael Vick when he was in Atlanta.  One thing, when you hit a guy like Brady, McNabb or Roethlisberger, you absorb some of the hit because they’re bigger guys.  Vick’s not a bigger guy.  Hitting Michael Vick, you feel like Drago in Rocky, “I must break you.” He scrambles and everybody loves it, but he sets himself up for hits.”

Long:  “He had his best year in a contract year.  By his own admission he hadn’t committed to being a student of the football game.  Philadelphia feels that he’s going to make a big jump this year from last year.  He makes a big jump from last year to this year, Philadelphia Eagles are in the Super Bowl.”
