Game On: An Insider Look At This Year's Super Bowl Predictions

Monday, September 09, 2013

Five things football fans are thinking as the 2013 football season begins:
  • For the second year in a row, Football Fans pick the San Francisco 49ers to win the Super Bowl
  • Participation in a fantasy football league is way up this year
  • Fans are evenly divided as to which offense is most effective:  using a traditional, pocket-passer QB or an offense centered around a running QB. 
  • There is, however, a noticeable racial divide:  whites heavily support using a traditional QB while blacks tend to lean towards a running-style QB.
  • Fans of the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts are the most confident in their team’s chances of winning the Super Bowl.
