Easily the worst part of the Super Bowl is the ceaseless stream of predictions that flood the airwaves and clog the intertubes. Everybody has an opinion this time of year, whether they are a professed expert or some guy in your office who’s breadth of knowledge comes from what they heard on the easy listening station. Nobody really cares about these predictions, but we recognize everyone’s right to offer up an entirely subjective final score. Well now the players themselves are joining in on the fun.

And then, as he entered the stadium and turned left toward the Giants locker room, Burress was asked for his prediction. Burress never hesitated, flatly stating “23-17.”

So there you have it, Giants win!

With that issue settled we sat down with Plaxico to hear some of his other insightful predictions. We’ll let him tell you what he thinks…
