Roush Racing Driver's Super Bowl picks
Roush Racing Quote of The Week - February 2, 2005

TOPIC: As the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles head into the Super Bowl this weekend, the Roush Racing drivers were asked who their picks are for the new Champions. Here's what they had to say:

Mark Martin, Driver, No. 6 Viagra (sildenafil citrate) Ford Taurus
"Well, I don't know really anything about football, but maybe I'll go with the Eagles, because I am a fan of Philly Steak Sandwiches. But then again I'm a fan of New England clam chowder as well, so I guess it'll just have to be a toss up."

Greg Biffle, Driver, No. 16 National Guard Ford Taurus
"I'm gonna go with the Eagles. I don't really have a reason other than that our old tire guy "Twinkie" always cheered for the Eagles. So I hope they win."

Matt Kenseth, Driver, No. 17 DEWALT Ford Taurus:
"I'm going to have to pick the Patriots. Since my Packers lost early in the play-offs I'll go with the defending champions."

Kurt Busch, Driver, No. 97 Sharpie/IRWIN Ford Taurus:
"If T.O. is healthy and stays healthy throughout the game, I've got to think the Eagles can pull it off. If it turns out to be a running game on both sides of the ball I think that will turn out to be an advantage for them. But Tom Brady has obviously proved that he knows how to lead the Patriots, and last year his performance was one of the greatest I've ever seen from a QB in the biggest moment of his life, so we'll just have to see how it all plays out."

Carl Edwards, Driver, No. 99 Roush Racing Ford Taurus/No. 60 Charter Ford Taurus:
"I'm not a football expert but I spoke to my brother Kenny who is and he says Philadelphia is the team to beat so I'll have to go with them. I've watched some of the playoff games and I do think it will be a great game as they are both really strong teams."

Todd Kluever, Driver, No. 50 World Financial Group/Shell Rotella T? F-150:
"I pray that Philadelphia wins so I don't have to listen to Ricky (Craven) and John (Monsam) talk about the Patriots all year. I already have to listen to them talk about the Red Sox and that's enough."

Ricky Craven, Driver, No. 99 Superchips F-150:
"Of course I will be rooting for the Patriots. Being from New England, that is my team. Tom Brady and the guys are playing at their best right now and I think they will be tough to beat."
