Transcript for Excitement builds before Super Bowl LIII kick off
We are just hours before kickoff to super bowl LIII. Excitement building by the minute. Joining us to talk about the big game is Darren Woodson. Great to have you this morning. Thanks, Eva. It’s good to be here. You’re a three-time super bowl champion with the Dallas cowboys. The big story line in this super bowl is veteran Tom Brady versus that rookie, Jared Goff. The biggest age difference in super bowl history. Who do you think has the edge based on your experience? Well, just off experience, you know, this is bill Belichick’s 100th time being in the super bowl. He has seven rings to go along with that. As a head coach, five rings, two as an assistant. The experience is there. He understands what it takes to get his team ready and prepared for the week coming up, and not only that, but being able to navigate the festivities along with the practices. That’s what Bill Belichick has been dealing with for most of his career. So he understands that. The edge would go to bill Belichick as far as the preparation, the experience of the super bowl, but at the same time, you can’t count out Sean Mcvay. He has done a wonderful job with his team. They have been probably one of the most successful teams throughout this season, so they will be ready to play regardless. Many are saying this will be a high-scoring game. Vegas has new England favored to win just so slightly. Do you think this will be a close game or will it be a complete blowout? No. I think this is going to be a close game. If you have seen the history of the patriots, every time they play in a super bowl, it’s always a close game. Most of those games are decided by three points or less. I’m looking at both of these teams as far as, you know, I think it’s going to be a close game early on. Keep it close to the vest, and then in the second half, both offenses will open up and it will become a slug fest. Two high-scoring teams and any time in the third or fourth quarter, I can see these teams putting up 20 or 30 points. Looking at the quarterbacks of those two teams, you have Brady versus Goff. Who has the edge in this game? Well, of course, you go back to the experience in Tom Brady. He has seen it all. He has already taken these tests. He understands, you know, everything exactly like bill Belichick. He understands his experience. He understands how the — how to approach a super bowl. Jared Goff is in his first super bowl. So we’re still waiting to see how he’ll focus his game and if he has jitters, if he can get over those jitters early in this football game because in the end, Jared Goff will be counted on to win this football game in the fourth quarter. It’s going to be a good one to watch and there is going to be lots of food and lots of commercials and lots of fun. That’s how we like it, right? Absolutely. Lots of food. Darren Woodson with ESPN. Thank you so much for joining us this morning.
