Default Mike Greenberg jinxs Texans 2012 season, calls them 'best team in football'

Mike & Mike In The Morning is doing their 'Two-a-Days' on NFL teams and Mike Greenberg applies his notorious jinx on the Texans by not only predicting a 12-4 season but also stating the Houston team is "the best team in football" barring injuries.




They also went through an interesting exercise: You're betting your house, your child's education, whatever sum that represents your 1000% confidence ..... what NFL teams have zero chance of winning the Super Bowl this year?

There are a lot, but I'd roll with the Arizona Cardinals.

Greenberg is a dooooooosh. Jets fan boy, and now he's all up in the Texans' business. I respect Golic's opinions much more.

Greenberg just seems like a weasel, the guy you love to hang out with and crack jokes with...but he's never around when you need him to help move furniture. Know what I mean? We all have a Greenberg or two in our personal lives. Amen?

They're going to be the worst, imo. Their oline was horrible to start and now they've lost LT Levi Brown for the season. They have no clue who their starting QB's going to be. It won't matter who starts because they're going to be getting crushed. The last preseason game I saw is how I have them projected to play. Horrible blocking = Very bad decisions by QB

We R Duumed.

There are a lot of teams I don't expect to get a whiff of the SB:
Jets, Bills, Dolphins, Browns, Titans, Jags, Colts, Chiefs, Redskins, Cowboys, Vikings, Buccs, Rams, and Cardinals.

It's hard to choose between those teams. I'll go with the Browns.

Miami Dolphins have zero chance of reaching the Super Bowl. If they somehow managed to do so it would be renamed the Super Bowel.

That's assuming their opponent was the Cardinals of course.

The Browns are the team I would go with, followed closely by the Vikings. Both the Browns & Vikings have multiple teams inside their division that will be extremely hard to overtake (Bears, Packers, Steelers, Ravens) for a playoff spot.

Let's not get too out of hand here. Can you actually name any instances where he names a team and they didn't succeed? I watch Mike and Mike in the morning, and honestly I don't take Greenberg as seriously as I do Golic. If Golic were to predict it, I would be a little more scared just because, curses are weird.

I predicted 12-4 season and a Superbowl win this year over 2 seasons ago, my prediction is stronger than Greenie's curse!

Less of a curse, more of a jinx...

He has a propensity for having his predictions go awry. It's a running gag on the show. So much so that he quips that people in Houston are pulling over on the side of the road and crying because he picked the Texans. the 4:22 mark of the podcast.

There's an idea! A game between the two worst teams and the winner gets the #1 pick!
