2011 Super Bowl Predictions: Tim Tebow, Cam Newton Say Steelers Over Packers

The 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas will feature the Pittsburgh Steelers turning themselves into the latest Super Bowl winners by beating the Green Bay Packers. That is, if you believe the predictions of Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow and former Auburn QB Cam Newton. Those two, along with Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel, were on a panel for ESPN called "Brunch With A Legend".

The panel was about life as a quarterback in the NFL and was conducted in Ft. Worth, Texas as part of a series of local "Brunch With A Legend" events ESPN is running across the country. 

Newton didn't give a score but did predict a Steelers win talking about QB Ben Roethlisberger's ability to avoid the rush. Newton, an athletic quarterback himself, knows something about avoiding the rush. Tebow actually gave a score with his prediction -- 27-24 in favor of the Steelers. Coincidentally, that's the exact same score prediction, and winner, that I picked. 

Cassel wouldn't pick a winner instead saying his prediction is "whoever wins". That's one way to avoid being wrong.

Tebow talked about a welcome to the NFL moment for him. They were playing the Steelers in their third preseason game and he was starting to get some playing time. He took one snap, rolled out and had S Troy Polamalu racing him down. Tebow says he remembers that moment very well.
