Denver a 2.5 point favorite.

And because the broncos have Manning they are the "Hollywood story". Seattle brings one of the better defenses in years as it's selling point.

I wish I could be with you on this, but in those conditions, a good defense will overtake a good offense.

I'm going ... Seattle 24 - 17

Broncos by 17. Russell Wilson was having a hard timelast week. He completed a 51 yarder on a broken play and had a td on a free play. Otherwise be played poorly.
Kaepernick missed a few opportunities by going elsewhere. I don't think Manning misses those.

I can see Denver getting every close call. And at least one close call goes against Sherman and probably in favor of Welker. Just my surmise, but that is my projection. Denver, straight up.

I am going with the "good defense is better than good offense" theory. Seattle will win but by no more than a TD and more like a FG.

Denver will roll all over Seattle. It won't be close in the 2nd half.

In both of Denver's playoff victories, I feel like they just absolutely dominated and yet the final score didn't reflect that at all.  So I don't think they're going to be able to run up the score against Seattle, but I do think it could be one of those games where the final score is deceptive.  I don't see Seattle winning this one at all.

So sick of all the Sherman talk already, hoping Manning lights him up and the Broncos cruise to victory, and I was going to pull for Seattle until the interview and aftermath.

This will be the last "cold weather" Super Bowl

Basically people are not even talking about the game -- they are talking about the weather. No way the NFL wants this ever again.

For some odd reason Toronto Mayor Rob Ford held a media conference today wearing a Broncos jersey.





EDIT - apparently Ford was wearing the Denver # 74 jersey in honour of Toronto native Denver tackle Orlando Franklin.


from tsn.ca: 

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has sworn his allegiance for Super Bowl XLVIII ... and he's pulling for the Denver Broncos.

Ford addressed the media on Monday wearing a Broncos jersey, emblazened with the number 74: the jersey of Broncos tackle Orlando Franklin who grew up in Toronto.

The mayor was first seen in the jersey entering his office and kept it on for the media conference where he discussed the city's budget. 

He did not directly address the jersey itself in his comments.

It's not the first time Ford has put his football fandom on display. He donned a Toronto Argonauts jersey prior to the team's CFL East Final match-up against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Ford would attend that game, despite not being an invited guest of the Argonauts. The Ticats won the East Final 36-24 with Ford watching from the stands amongst the paying customers.

You're insane.

Seattle will be able to move the ball against that shitty Denver D. They'll get their share of points. If they can't move the ball the entire day, I'll be stunned.  I also think the Seattle has a good enough D that they'll make some stops.

I'd be willing to bet Manning makes a bad decision in the second half, because it's tight, that costs the Broncos the game.

Im going for Seattle 24 - 17 of course.

I gotta say downtown Seattle is just insane right now. You cannot walk a block without seeing Seahawks gimmicks somewhere. The city Iis behind this team like no other in the history of our city, even more than the 06' Hawks.

I'm not big on predictions or even taking all the 'facts' and making an education prediction.  Needless to say I am very pleased with the "story" of this superbowl.  I am pulling for Manning simply because of his past and track record.  Silence the nay sayers.

OT
Denver 31
Seattle 25


Seattle's been screwed up ever since they traded the rights to Tony Dorsett. Their self-important acoustic alchemy is paramount to bad karma, since every other team gets a penalty for having 12 men on the field. Don Criqui and John Brodie should be calling this 1980s style AFC West late game matchup. I gave it one of those Alcoa Fantastic Finishes to keep things in perspective.

I hope Denver wins on a controversial (yet correct) call just so we can hear weephawks fans crying about a conspiracy, just like they still do after putting up a whopping 10 points on the Steelers in SB XL.

Even though I had Seattle in this game, I have now turned on the, "Puppy Bowl".

Sadly, that program is exciting than the game itself.

A fucking ass kicking. Denver's first offensive play, the snap that went over Manning's head, has epitomized this game.

Every year used to be like this.  We just got spoiled with about 15 years of decent to great Super Bowls (give or take 1 or 2).  Certainly this isn't worse than the Niners destruction of the Broncos, or Cowboys 52 - Bills 17.

Cowboys/Bills started and seemed far more competitive than this game despite mistakes/turnovers and Kelly's injury in I think the 2nd quarter.
Buffalo scored first I think and were moving the ball/somewhat in it until mid-way through the 2nd quarter.
Denver never looked to be in this game.  Not for one minute.

He's still a great QB. He sucked ass tonight but he did win one Super Bowl with The Colts. He broke Tom Brady's passing records this season. Brady is the only current QB I might put ahead of Manning. I'm still up in the air on that one. I'd take Manning over Favre, Elway, Bradshaw, Marino and everybody else not named Montana.

After tonight that's simply insane.  He's still easily a top 15 QB all-time, arguably top 10, he no longer sniffs top 5.

Manning is nowhere near my Top 5 of QBs. We get into the stats debate, again.

The guy cannot throw the deep ball. History has shown that he is easily rattled.   Manning has not only been rattled in SBs....in the playoffs and conference games he has shown how easily he can be taken out of his game.  He can do his Omaha audibles and such, but that is part of the fake imagery. 

In my opinion, it is not even close. Brady sits at No. 1 for current QBs and the rest are debatable.   But, between Manning and Brady....not even close.

As for all-time QBs, you got have the ability to win big games....he is not even near the TOP 10 in this category.

He would not be considered such a fraud if the media hype did not follow him around.

Troy Aikman lost all credibility last night as he continued to fawn over Manning's legacy while Manning was embarrassing himself.  Twitter might've been ripping Aikman worse than Manning by the time it was over.

He's easily a top 10 QB all time. Last night indeed hurt his legacy, if he had won last night, owning all the records he does, 5 time MVP and taking 2 different organizations to SB titles, he'd have been top 3 easily. As it stand now he's still top 10, HE WON ONE. All I've heard for 30 years about Marino is "Well, he's great, but he never won a SB, win a SB and then get back to me", well, Manning won one, so let's stop with the can't win any big games. He can't win them consistently, but he DID win one, so stop with the "He's not a top 10 QB" talk, it makes you look foolish.

How is he not better than Favre and Elway who regularly had playoff games like this and worse? His numbers are better across the board than Marino and he's already won a title.

He's way better than Marino, don't know how anyone can debate that. When it comes to the playoffs out of those guys I'm taking Elway and Favre over him. Favre may have thrown some crazy interceptions but he never played scared in big games, that's Manning's problem, he over-thinks it in big games and plays not to lose instead of playing to win like he does in the regular season. That's why his brother is so much better than him in big games, nothing fazes him..

Manning has been the golden child since coming out of Tennessee.  I truthfully would not take this guy in my Top 10 if I were putting a team together.  Eli won two SBs is he better than Peyton?  Stats and SB victories cannot be used as lone benchmarks to grade a QB.  There are flaws with both standards.  

Falling into the pathetic Manning hype is foolishness and makes to you look like a child chasing after pedo clown with a handful of balloons. 

Manning is a fraudulent product of stat-geeks, nothing more and nothing less.   He is not a terrible QB but he sure in the hell is not one of the best in my opinion.

I wonder how much the bookies won

Game opens at Seattle -1, bet to Denver -2 1/2, they never move the line to 3 (that would have generated Seattle bets) and just let everyone take Denver at -less than a field goal

Obviously this topic has been done a billion times but I do not see how anyone puts anyone over Montana (well except for Breesus but that is another story).

I'd probably have to go Brady after him.

Then you have Elways, Favres, Bradshaws, Staubachs, Youngs, etc. Peyton is in that conversation but his playoff and SB record really do drag him down.

I have never watched enough pre-late 70's to rank those guys save Johnny U who is in there somewhere.

The guy cannot throw the deep ball. History has shown that he is easily rattled.   Manning has not only been rattled in SBs....in the playoffs and conference games he has shown how easily he can be taken out of his game.  He can do his Omaha audibles and such, but that is part of the fake imagery. 

In my opinion, it is not even close. Brady sits at No. 1 for current QBs and the rest are debatable.   But, between Manning and Brady....not even close.

As for all-time QBs, you got have the ability to win big games....he is not even near the TOP 10 in this category.

He would not be considered such a fraud if the media hype did not follow him around. 

He's easily a top 10 QB all time. Last night indeed hurt his legacy, if he had won last night, owning all the records he does, 5 time MVP and taking 2 different organizations to SB titles, he'd have been top 3 easily. As it stand now he's still top 10, HE WON ONE. All I've heard for 30 years about Marino is "Well, he's great, but he never won a SB, win a SB and then get back to me", well, Manning won one, so let's stop with the can't win any big games. He can't win them consistently, but he DID win one, so stop with the "He's not a top 10 QB" talk, it makes you look foolish.

Foolish is putting it mildly.

Was the game plan by the Bronoco's offense poor?  Yeah, I can see that.  Dinking and dunking wasn't going to work.  Why? Because that secondary is elite.  They were covering the deep routes, and making well executed tackles on all of the receptions that they did give up.   Did you see that O-line giving up pressure CONSTANTLY?  Orlando Franklin played about as poorly as anyone could play.  And Seattle was smart, they pretty much had one DT and 3 rushing DE's for 90% of all of the plays and there was nothing that o-line could do to stop them.  And since the routes were covered, the offense was taken out. 

How about giving credit to Seattle for simply outplaying Denver?  Why does it have to be that Manning is a fraud?  What kind of archaic thinking is that?  The best TEAM won as a whole and the other TEAM lost as a whole.

Yesterday was the Seahawks Super Bowl parade in downtown Seattle. It was estimated that over 750,000 people attended. All I can say is it was agreat eexperience. I really don't have anything to compare it with. It's been a long time coming and to describe how the city has reacted to the win is hard to explain. You can't walk 10 feet without seeing something related to the Seahawks. I have never seen so much sports merchandise anywhere, even on tv.

I've heard their merch sales set some kind of record, and I would not doubt it. I see it everywhere, just crazy.
