Giants will win Super Bowl XLVI, predicts ‘Madden NFL 12′

By Ben Silverman | Plugged In @ Yahoo Games

The New England Patriots might be the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl XLVI, but the New York Giants have proven an uncanny knack for making odds-makers look ridiculous.

And according to Madden, they’re about to do it again.

EA Sports has simulated Sunday’s Big Game in Madden NFL 12 on the Xbox 360, and in another insane playoff nail-biter, the Giants edged out the Patriots, 27-24, to take home the franchise’s fourth Lombardi trophy.

But forget about the anticipated match-up between Tom Brady and Eli Manning. Like the last two playoff games, this one came down to a field goal. Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes, fresh off demolishing the dreams of San Francisco fans in OT, knocked down a 40-yard field goal as time expired to give the Giants the victory. Wonder if they simulated a virtual Billy Cundiff weeping pixilated tears, too?

The unlikely Giants win almost didn’t happen. The Madden simulation saw Brady rally his troops from a 24-10 fourth quarter deficit, throwing for two TDs to tie up the game. But like he’s done all year, Manning stormed back during the last Giants possession to set up the game-winning kick. He was also named the game’s MVP, finishing 25-39 for 342 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

The annual Madden simulation has proven pretty accurate at picking Super Bowl winners, though it fumbled pretty badly last year in taking the Steelers over the Packers. Still, it’s got a track record most gamblers would envy, nailing 6 of the last 8 games.

Princess Picks the Super Bowl! – Giants v. Pats

Princess the Camel is all over the news today, it seem that the only time anyone pays much attention to her is when she is making a Super Bowl prediction that involves our beloved NY Giants, which is not the case here. I’ve been covering Princess and her picks all season long on this blog!


As you all know Princess has an outstanding record this season that currently stands at 14-6. Myself and many more Giants fans out there are hoping that her record extends to 15 correct picks after next Sunday’s Super Bowl in Indianapolis where the NY Giants and the NE Patriots will meet in a rematch of Super Bowl XLII.

Princess’s big prediction for Super Bowl XLVI next week is that the Giants will come out victorious once again against the Patriots.

Here’s what she had to say:

“…I know all about Belichick & Brady. I know how good the Patriots can be, but I’ve got a feeling Brady will be on his butt more often than not, the Giants defense is that good!! Eli and the offense will do what it takes to win.”

If you are interested in watching Princess make her pick, Brick Patch has a video posted online showing Princess and her handler John, making the pick.

Princess’ Playoff Pick- Giants v. Packers

Last week it seemed that Princess the Camel may have been a little to confident in picking the Giants to beat the Falcons in their NFC Wildcard playoff game, but she and the Giants pulled it off rather impressively, the Giants beat the Falcons 24 – 2.


Being the Giants fan that she is, Princess hopes to continue her amazing winning streak and once again has chosen the Eli manning and the Giants to win this weeks NFC Divisional playoff game against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

Ever optimistic Princess stated, “…stranger things have happened. Not too long ago the Giants went to Green Bay as a big underdog, played the game in zero degrees, and beat the Packers on their way to beating an 18 and 0 New England Patriots.”, when explaining her choice for picking the currently 9 point underdogs NY Giants over the Packers.

It’s going to be a tough game this week for the Giants, I don’t know if they can really pull it off but as Princess stated, anything can happen. Win or loss the Giants have exceeded expectations this year and I’ll be cheering for them either way.

The Playoffs – Giants v. Falcons for Princess

I don’t have to tell everyone what a huge win last weeks victory over the Dallas Cowboys was for the NY Giants, it was huge. The win sealed the division title for the G-men and propelled them into the NFL playoffs. And if you remember back to last week, Princess the Camel predicted the outcome correctly!

For those keeping track thus far of Princess’s prognostications for the year, she finished up the regular season with an impressive 11(W)-5(L)record with last weeks win, she is now looking to extend her winning ways into the playoffs.

In the opening round of this years playoffs, the Giants will be facing the Atlanta Falcons at home on Suday in MetLife Stadium. It will be the very first playoff game held in the Giants the new stadium.

So who does Princess the Camel favor in this historic game? The Giants of course!

“…the Giants defense is finally healthy now. Did you see what they did to Romo last week? I felt bad for him and I feel sorry for the Falcons quarterback. Eli to Cruz unstoppable!!! They ought to call it “The Cruz Missile”.”, said Princess, not at all trying to hide her glee over the resurgent Giants.

Do the Giants and Princess have what it take to continue their winning ways (until at least next week)? I think so, the Falcons are a team built to play indoors and while the weather may not a big factor (temps in the mid 40’s with a chance of rain and possible wind), it may come into play at some point and turn the game in favor of the Giants.

Princess Picks Week 14 – Giants v. Cowboys

Week 14 of the NFL season is upon us and Princess the Camel of Lacy Township’s Popcorn Park Zoo, is coming off a big win.

Last week she picked the NY Jets to beat the Washington Redskins down at FedEx Field. That pick was in jeopardy going to the 4th quarter, the Jets were down 19-13 to the Skin when all of a sudden, the Redskins imploded by giving up 21 unanswered points in the span of 7 minutes.


For this week’s pick, Princess is taking the NY Giants(6-6) over the Dallas Cowboys (7-5), in Dallas on Sunday night.

So what did Princess have to say about her pick?

“… the Cowboys haven’t won a game in December since I don’t know when and then take into account the Giants 2nd half of the season collapses the last couple of years. Well, one of them is going to win by accident.”, “…But they did play a good game last week even though they lost. Eli will out gun Romo.”

I agree with Princess on this weeks pick, this should be a good game for the Giants. They are the better team and need to beat the Cowboys to keep their playoff hopes alive.
A win Sunday night will give the Giants a slight lead over the Cowboys in the NFC East, but to ensure a playoff spot they will have to win the rest of their games and beat the Cowboys a second time on New Years Day to guarantee it. It wont be easy but I think they will be up to the challenge.
Let’s hope that Princess continues her winning ways this week.

NFL Week 12 Is Nearly Over But Not Before Princess Picks The Saint In Monday Night Match-Up Vs The Giants

It’s been a long Thanksgiving weekend between eating turkey, Black Friday shopping and watching football, so seeing how Princess the Camel decided to choose this weeks Monday night match-up between the New Orleans Saints and the NY Giants as this weeks game in which to issue her prognostication it has given me a little more time to post about it.

If you recall from my last Princess post for NFL week 11, she picked the NY Jets to beat the Denver Broncos in a game that the Jets unfortunately went on to loose.
It was a bad loss for the Jets, it set off a fire storm of criticism in the media, put the Jets play-off hope at risk and lead Coach Rex Ryan to publicly humiliate Quarterback Marc Sanchez by taking away some of his practice time with the first string offense.
In this weeks game Princess seems to have made the a predictable safe prediction after two straight very close loosing predictions (Giants over Niners, Jets over Broncos). Princess says that the New Orleans Saints will beat the NY Giants in New Orleans to close out week 12 in the NFL on Monday night.
…the blue on the Giants is a little faded and I think they are too. The defense is in disarray and they looked almost as bad as the Jets defense. The Saints are tough especially in their own building. Someone has to step up and take control of the Giants, until then…
Princess record at picking games this year is currently 6W-5L, I think after this game her record will be even. I just can’t imagine after two bad losses in a row,the last one being a total shellacking by the Eagles, that the Giants will stink it up three weeks in a row.
I think the Giants will be ready for this game even though their offensive line is being reconstructed this week and they will be playing without runningback Ahmad Bradshaw. The Giants defense will hold the Saints in check just enough for Eli Manning to work enough voodoo in his New Orleans homecoming.
It will be close, I’m thinking somewhere along the lines of say, 20-17 Giants.
