WINNING NOT REQUESTED

HEADLINE PLAY
     
Win by Default
By Dennis Ranahan

There are a number of teams that have been eliminated by our account, a list that includes the Arizona Cardinals, Pittsburgh Steelers. Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs. In fact, we have eliminated 27 of the 32 National Football League teams as our choice to win it all. The five teams remaining as potential Super Bowl winners are the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings and either the New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks.

On Friday in this column we will limit the field to four.

Our top four don’t even include the two teams Sports Illustrated predicted in their NFL edition, they have the Arizona Cardinals beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl LI. If what SI predicts comes true, it would be sweet revenge for a Cardinals team that lost to the Steelers in the final seconds of Super Bowl XLIII.

Sports Illustrated also predicted a playoff berth for the Dallas Cowboys this season, the copy set before Tony Romo went down with an injury that will sideline him for at least the first half of the season. That doesn’t mean Romo will play eight games this year, it means Romo will come back in eight weeks and play until he gets hurt again.

Putting Romo on the field, even with arguably the best offensive line in football, is akin to building a house out of balsa wood in hurricane alley. When he takes over on offense, the ambulance driver warms up his engine.

Cause and effect.

It is not always what most people think. But it is consistent. On the other side of something happening, a cause can always be identified as if it was in the shine of a spotlight on an otherwise pitch black moonless night.

Often, affect hides the cause behind public sentiment.

Public opinion is swayed by bits and pieces of information that are assigned significance in an assortment of ways … none necessarily tethered to something that truly drives predictable results.

Going in, likely; coming out, certainty.

Even a contest yet to be decided that has a 99% probability of favoring one side in a two team race fails to offer an ironclad guarantee, but after a game is over one side is the 100% winner and the other a zero.

Certainty is only provided after a contest is decided.

The cause of something is most often tied to the need to perform at a higher level than recent outings. When a team in that sphere meets a team that has run a winning streak to it’s limits, an opportunity to cash a proposition most often comes with points on the spread.
