Poll:Despite recent slide, readers confident in Colts

Monday, November 19, 2007

So, it appears the Indianapolis Colts, losers of two straight games, righted the ship this weekend after knocking off the Kansas City Chiefs, 13-10, on a last-second field goal.

After the two losses, The Brazil Times elected to ask its online readers which National Football League team had what it took to win this year's Super Bowl?

Seven teams were listed in the poll question and more than 200 readers responded to the poll question.

Of the 241 readers that responded, it appears there are more Colts fans in Clay County than fans of the remaining six squads.

A total of 110 voters (45.6 percent) believe the Colts still have what it takes to win this year's Super Bowl, besting the New England Patriots by 62 votes.

A total of 67 readers (27.8 percent) believe the Patriots -- who are 10-0 this season -- have what it takes to win the Super Bowl this year.

The Green Bay Packers came in third in the poll as 28 readers (11.6 percent) believe the Packers will win the big game.

The Dallas Cowboys finished fourth in the poll with a total of 9.1 percent of the vote (22 voters) while the Pittsburgh Steelers received 3.7 percent (nine voters) of the vote.

Four readers (1.7 percent) believed the San Diego Chargers can win the Super Bowl and one voter believed the New York Giants had what it took to win the big game.

Three readers also responded to the poll question.

One reader stated, "The Chargers have a lot of good players this year and I wouldn't be shocked to seem them win the Super Bowl."

Another responder stated, "The Cowboys are taking it all the way baby."

The current poll question deals with Christmas shopping.

The Friday following Thanksgiving, known as "Black Friday," is always a traditional big day for Christmas shopping.

The Brazil Times is asking its readers this week if they plan on heading out Friday to start Christmas shopping.

Poll answers include "Yes, I can't wait," "It's possible, but doubtful," "No, I'll wait a few days and maybe longer," and "Not at all."
