As sports fans, we’re all constantly comparing athletes and teams of different eras when there’s really no way of knowing for certain. How would Tom Brady do against Terry Bradshaw? Could Troy Aikman and company beat the Packers in the Ice Bowl?

Well perhaps now we can know. I’ve put together a bracket of all 48 Super Bowl winners and will simulate each game using What if Sports, which gives you the final score, the Player of the Game, stats and play-by-play results. Feel out a bracket along with us to see how these matchups will (or would hypothetically) finish. If we get a good turnout, there will be a prize.

NBA Preview

by Nathan Hague

On our last podcast, we previewed the NBA by giving our Finals Preview, MVP and Coach of the Year.

Before we get too far into the NBA, I just like to say I change my pick for Coach of the Year from Rick Carlisle to Doc Rivers. The reason for change is not because the Mavs dropped their opener to the Spurs but simply because I wasn’t thinking straight when I made my pick on the podcast.

Rivers is going to take the Clippers deep into the playoffs, and because of issues the Clippers faced at the end of last season, it would be a great feel-good story. It’s obvious Rivers knows what he’s doing and he has the championship rings from Boston to prove it. He’s has the team to add to hardware this year too.

At any rate, my Finals pick is San Antonio again over the Cleveland Cavs. I see the Spurs defeating the Clippers to get to the Finals and the Cavs defeating the Bulls with LeBron James being named league MVP.

As for the Mavs, owner Mark Cuban has brought the band back together from the 2011 Championship team by bringing Tyson Chandler and J.J. Barea back. The big addition was Chandler Parsons but the club also brought in Richard Jefferson.

If this team was in the East, there’s no question in my mind they’d be favored to win the conference but since they’re in the West, it’ll likely be a dogfight with several teams, particularly with the defending champion Spurs.

No. 41

Dirk Nowitzki is a legend. If there were a real Mount Rushmore of Dallas sports, one would be hard pressed not to include him on there, but that’s a debate for another time. There’s no debate that Nowitzki is beloved by Dallas and he has returned that love. He could’ve made way more money playing […]

No. 42

There was no decision when it came to picking the best player to ever wear No. 42. In fact, not only was it the easiest one so far, it just might be the easiest we’ll see in the entire countdown. It doesn’t hurt that the No.42 was retired across the board in all of Major […]

No. 43

In this jersey number countdown series, the majority of athletes we’ve featured have moved on from the game. That’s not the case for Troy Polamalu who is not only still playing but you could argue, is still in his prime. Polamalu is one of the best safeties in the game and will go down as […]

Let the jokes begin

If Jerry Jones does in fact add Michael Sam to the Cowboys’ practice squad, the crazy old man will just once again prove the he cares way more about the attention than he does winning football games. A gay cowboy? Is this Broke Back Mountain? Well, I guess we just have to let the jokes […]

AFC and NFC East 2014

AFC East By Ben Dieter Big shocker here: the Patriots are favored to win the AFC East in 2014. Until Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are gone, they probably will be. The Jets should be better and the Bills may be better as well, but the Patriots will still be the class of the division. […]

No. 44

Picking the best athlete to ever wear No. 44 is a no-brainer. Many people consider Hank Aaron the real all-time home run hitter to this day seeing as Barry Bonds would never have come even close without the help of steroids. Hammerin’ Hank did it the right way. He spent 21 season is the Major […]
