Tasker’s Super Bowl prediction: OT

Posted by johnmurphyshow on February 1, 2013 – 10:00 pm

Former Bills great Steve Tasker will have a sideline view of Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday. And he thinks he may be putting in some overtime.

Tasker appeared as a guest on The John Murphy Show Friday night. He’s been in New Orleans all week getting ready for his role as a sideline reporter on the CBS TV broadcast of the Super Bowl.

Tasker told host John Murphy the Baltimore Ravens matchup with the Forty Niners is going to be close.

“I can’t pick a winner in this, even if I wanted to,” Tasker said. “But I think this Super Bowl looks more like an overtime game than any other Super Bowl game I’ve ever been around.”

“The unstoppable force meets the immovable object in this game. I think it’s going to be an overtime game, and I couldn’t tell you who’s going to win it.”

Tasker did say the Forty Niners solid defense is going to be tested by Ravens QB Joe Flacco and his ability to throw the long ball.

“Joe Flacco is throwing the football better than any quarterback has in the National Football League for the last five years. This guy is making throws that most teams won’t even ask their quarterback to think about. And not only are the Ravens asking Joe Flacco to make those throws, they’re calling the plays specifically so Joe Flacco can. This guy makes throws nobody else can. He’s the most accurate deep-ball passer I’ve ever seen. And he’s got as strong an arm as anybody who’s ever played this game.”
