Can someone please tell this to the CBS/FOX/ESPN pre-game shows? Am I losing my mind, or is the media so blinded by the prospect of a Pats/Giants rematch that they've completely disregarded any prospect of a 49ers/Ravens win?
Anyways, on the CBS pre-game show, all the analysts picked the Giants, citing Manning's bad-weather QB acumen. Well, I did some research, and Manning averages a QB rating in the 70s on rainy and windy games, while Alex is in the 80s-90s. It is just mind mind-boggling.

Anyways, the Bay Area Sports Guy discussed the SportsNation pick here: http://www.bayareasportsguy.com/the-nation-wants-a-giants-patriots-super-bowl-or-do-they/
I just can't get over this media bias.
