Dallas Cowboys legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Roger Staubach is viewed as nearly infallible by many fans, but he got it wrong when picking the Super Bowl winner a year ago.
Not that he was alone by any means, but Staubach predicted Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos would defeat the Seattle Seahawks, ahead of the Seahawks’ 43-8 dismantling of Manning and co.
So is he ready to pick Russell Wilson this time around?
Well, not exactly.
Staubach told reporters this week that he is a fan of Wilson, that he thinks very highly of him. But he’s picking against Seattle once again.
“Well, I’m a Tom Brady and Bill Belichick fan,” Staubach said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t want to jinx New England, but I’m picking New England.”
