Panel unanimous: Jets not in Super Bowl

The New York Jets have generated a lot of noise about the Super Bowl.

I know 25 NFL writers and analysts who aren't buying it.

ESPN.com senior deputy NFL editor John Banks has convened a Pigskin Panel of experts from the Bristol campus to weigh in on a variety of topics throughout the season.

The group consists of all eight divisional bloggers, TV analysts, radio hosts, stat freaks, fantasy gurus and maybe a couple members of the overnight custodial crew in a pinch.

The Pigskin Panel's first task was to forecast the winner and loser of Super Bowl XLV.

Nary a one of us predicted the Jets to play in the game, much less win it.

My guess: The Indianapolis Colts over the Green Bay Packers, although I do think the Jets will win the AFC East.
