It's finally here.  Super Bowl 56 is upon us and I can't wait.  It's been a long season as it has indeed been the longest season in NFL history.  Here is my quick take on my Super Bowl prediction from the Times Union:

The Cincinnati Bengals will win the Super Bowl if quarterback Joe Burrow’s offensive line can provide even a little protection for their Super Star QB. Burrow doesn’t get rattled and doesn’t make many mistakes. Matthew Stafford will be the quarterback to throw a few picks on Sunday, and Burrow will win the MVP after the Bengals knock off the Los Angeles Rams 31-24. Cincinnati is 0-2 in Super Bowls, but that’s about to change in Super Bowl LVI.

We had Freddie Coleman on with us at 10:45 this morning to talk about his Super Bowl predictions.  Freddie is always must listen radio as you can hear him from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. here on ESPN 104.5 The Team as he hosts Freddie & Fitzsimmons.  Below is our full conversation with Freddie Coleman from today.

My producer and co host Michael Johnson Jr. asked Freddie what he thinks about the potential Ja'Marr Chase vs Jalen Ramsey matchup.  Freddie thinks Chase could have a big day and he would even give the edge to him due to his speed and explosiveness.  Freddie also expects a very close game and it should come down to the final minute.

This will be the last time I say this I promise, but I truly believe Joe Burrow is special and the Bengals will win this game by a touchdown.  I will hopefully watch the first half or so at home with my son Brady who has been as you all know, a lifelong Bengals fan.  I will be working at WNYT NewsChannel 13 through the end of the game.  I expect an awesome Super Bowl and I hope everyone enjoys Super Bowl Sunday.

Head coach Jim Fassel and company used the facilities at the University at Albany each preseason for over a decade, as some of the best Big Blue beasts tore it up in the Capital Region before taking the field in the NFL.
