This was supposed to just be a reminder to sign up for the Super Bowl contest before kickoff, but I may as well tell you how I came to my prediction of Bears 41, Colts 16 with Devin Hester running for 170 yards.

Let it be known that I am not a psychic or a medium or seer or anything, I'm just a mild mannered American man who watches way too much football and hates that LA hasn't had a team since the Raiders went back to No Cal.

The Bears will win, heavily, for several reasons, the most obvious should be the weather. Look at it there. That's Bears weather.

Didn't you see those playoff games in Chicago? That was the most torn-up, unprofessional, sloppy, disgraceful field I have ever seen for a playoff game. I've seen football games played on baseball fields that were in better shape than the "new" Soldier Field last month.

The Bears discovered that to get a real home field advantage it was in their best interest to create an environment that most teams wouldn't have experienced before. The slop was one reason that the Bears were able to create mayhem on New Orleans two weeks ago.

The field in Miami will be beautiful, but once the rains come, watch the Bears create fumbles and run the quick slant routes over the middle that Grossman isn't afraid to throw.
