Ryan Howard's pick for the Super Bowl (and some other stuff)
First off, Ryan Howard indicated a couple of days ago that there hasn't been much movement on a potential multi-year contract extension. Big deal? Not really. He's under club control through 2011, so there really is no rush. But he'll likely receive another healthy raise this season (he made $10 million) last year.
But that's another topic for another day. Thought you all might be interested in who he is picking to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.
For obvious reasons, it isn't his hometown Rams.
It's his adopted-hometown Eagles.
"I think if the Eagles get in, watch out," Howard said. "And that's not just because I play for Philly. I think they've got a lot of momentum going. And I think if they get in, they'll take that momentum and keep going with it."
