In case you haven’t had enough Super Bowl hype, here’s one more thing for New England fans to chew on: Roger Staubach, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback who was MVP of Super Bowl Vi in 1972, is predicting the Pats to defeat Seattle Sunday.
Staubach, who is now in the commercial real estate business as executive chairman of JLL, said in a news release that he expects a close game but that New England will emerge the winner.
"The Patriots have been phenomenal all season and Tom Brady is one of the all-time greats,’’ said Staubach, a starting quarterback at the U.S. Naval Academy before turning pro. "I think you’ve got one of the best matchups we’ve ever had for Sunday’s game, and I expect Seattle, with their quarterback that never quits, to play a fantastic game. But this is the year the Patriots win another championship.’’
