While it's the off-season for the Cannons, sports are still on the mind of many of our players and coaches. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we know that means the NFL season is right at that critical point of the year where the best teams rise to the top and the others start to look towards next year.
We asked some of our players and coaches to give their predictions as to the top teams in each conference and if they had any Super Bowl picks. Let see what these pros had to say-
MATT POSKAY -- Matt thinks we will see the Jets and the Chargers in the AFC Championship Game. He predicts the NFC will be decided between the NY Giants and New Orleans Saints. A little suspect, but the New Jersey boy picks the Jets and Giants to meet in the Super Bowl and Poskay sees himself at Dallas Stadium in February.

KYLE SWEENEY -- Kyle likes the Eagles and Packers from the NFC and the Steelers and Colts in the AFC title game. In the big one, Sweeney picks the Steelers to take home the Lombardi trophy defeating the Packers.
PAUL RABIL -- Rabil went purely sentimental picks, taking his 2 favorite teams to compete in the Super Bowl. (Note, this pick from Rabil came in BEFORE Monday night's game). Rabil is picking Donovan McNabb and the Redskins taking on Brady and the Patriots for NFL supremecy this season! What do you think?!
ASSISTANT COACH STEVE DUFFY -- The best way to counter Coach Daye's picks is with Assistant Coach Steve Duffy! Coach Duffy sees things a little differently through his New England glasses. While he agrees the Jets and Giants will be in their respective conference championship games, he picks DA PATS to take out the Jets, and then complete the NY sweep by defeating the Giants in the Super Bowl. A little payback for 2007?
