Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

February 1, 2009 -

The Pittsburgh Steelers will win Super Bowl XLIII by a score of XXVIII - XXIV.

At least, that's the word from EA Sports. The publisher used its best-selling Madden NFL 2009 to predict the outcome of today's big game.

An EA Sports press release says that the game will be close:

Holding off a fourth quarter comeback by the Cardinals, the Steelers bring the Vince Lombardi trophy back to the Steel City for the second time in the past four years and for a sixth time in franchise history, setting an NFL record.

GP: So, GamePolitics readers, who do you think will win? Leave a comment with your prediction of the final score...

That's pretty amazing - only one point difference for each team.  Maybe it's time to retire the real superbowl and just go with the Madden one.  Then maybe we can reintroduce cricket to America, LOL.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Wow just subtract 1 point from each team.

Steelers by 10 to beat the spread.

And I've mentioned it practically every time I came around over the past week, but a certain armchair ex-lawyer had the Cards by 14 in one of his rambling meta-posts on the NY game bill story.  I couldn't drag out a further explanation from him, unfortunately.

Personally, I saw his prediction as a thinly veiled analogy to himself, you know with the underdog pulling out the win and all.

Then again, maybe I'm giving Jack a little too much credit.

If I end up doing anything today, I will probably be playing Metroid Prime. Stupid Meta Ridley killed me last time I played him.

Lemme guess, Prime 1, right? Easy kill. Plasma Beam, not Super Missiles. Saves your Missiles for when you need them. Prime 3 can be a bit of trouble. I'll save my advice for Meta Ridley in that game for when you reach it.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I never liked football. On the rare occasion that I did end up watching, I always rooted for the clock.

I think I'll play No More Heroes tonight instead.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Steelers will win. Score is irrelevant.

anytime score is irrelevant, I think of this:

Marge: So many choices... Can't I just bet that all the horses will have a good time?

Bookie: You want that line. (Points over to the counter labeled "Wuss Bets")

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Do... Do you actually want a list of who cares?

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

So what's the context?  Do these Madden "official pre-plays" have any record of accurate predictions?

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

yeah, they say they've picked 4 of last 5 winners.

 

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I really don't care as I'm not into sports at all.  And whenever the Superbowl comes up, I always think of Andy Milonakis' "Superbowl is Gay" song.

If I do watch it at all, it'll be for the commercials, especially the movie trailers.  A lot of the ones they'll be showing are for ones I'm especially interested in seeing including Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Race to Witch Mountain and Land of the Lost.  Then again, I can see them all online if I miss them.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I was gonna use my old school Football Handheld from Mattel.  The one with a bunch of little lights that are supposed to represent players and the football.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Cardinals 27, Steelers 24

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Madden 2009 Predicts Steelers Will Win Super Bowl

Lord help me, but I'm seeing red, 27-20.

Re: Madden 2009 Predicts Steelers Will Win Super Bowl

It all depends on the ability of the Steelers to pressure Warner and force turnovers.  If they can keep him off balance, the Steelers win going away, 30 - 13.

If not, I see a closer game with the Steelers winning 24 -20.

E. Zachary KnightSo a Tetris movie is happening. Here is the link. Reads like a joke: http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2014/09/30/tetris-movie/09/30/2014 - 11:47am
E. Zachary KnightSo is it worth getting the Season Pass?09/30/2014 - 11:45am
Andrew EisenWow. The Hyrule Warriors DLC is more extensive than I thought. The new scenario in the first pack is a full five levels and the new Adventure Map is a whole new map, all 128 squares. Yowza!09/30/2014 - 11:08am
Andrew EisenI'm most pleased that the Quick Start Menu will now launch when the Wii U is powered on from the TV Gamepad TV Remote. I felt that was a huge oversight and I'm glad it's been corrected.09/30/2014 - 11:06am
