Well with three picks in the books in 2009, I am not off to such a good start. Utah really surprised me last night with how well they played. After discussing the game on the phone with my dad, who attended the game with my mother, I just really feel that Utah had a specific game plan they implemented for Alabama. They had a month to study film, find the holes in their defense and attack.
It appeared that Alabama tried to do the same thing they have been doing all season and without their star Left Tackle, it was a lot more difficult than they thought it would be. Despite only being sacked 14 times all season, John Parker Wilson went down eight times to the Utes defense. When they weren't sacking him, they were putting enough pressure on him to make bad decisions.
With that behind us, it' time to make my 2009 Super Bowl picks.
