The question of who is going to win the Super Bowl is often rooted in analyzing things like "strategy" and "talent." But what if that weren't the case?

Here's who would win the Super Bowl if the Lombardi Trophy winner were decided by factors ranging from best facial hair to best post-game press conferences.

Ryan Fitzpatrick of the Houston Texans and Eric Weddle of the San Diego Chargers may make this one a contest but as long as Brett Keisel is in the league, no one touches The Beard.
