Super Bowl Sunday Thoughts and Predictions


 

Some of you might remember that I called this game two weeks ago.  I predicted Seattle and Denver in the Super Bowl, the only part that’s yet to be proven in my prediction is that the Broncos will win.

Again, I don’t have anything against Seattle.  As far as I can tell, they are a very good and sportsmanlike team.  My prediction is based on nothing more than Peyton Manning’s unparalleled desire and uncanny ability to win.

I don’t think that Peyton is the kind of guy that plays with a chip on his shoulder, but it does appear he is carrying a bit of extra motivation.

I also have to say that despite being an adamant Cowboy’s fan, I would still consider Peyton easily in my top 5 favorite players.  It’s hard to believe he could be related to that goofy-faced idiot, Eli.

Remember Eli vandalizing the visitor’s locker room in AT&T Stadium the inaugural game?  That seems like the kind of thing Peyton would have come down on a teammate hard for.  I can’t imagine the better Manning standing for such immature and unsportsmanlike behavior from his players.

On another subject, it seems to be a hot topic that the Super Bowl should not be held in New Jersey, due to miserable weather conditions for both fans and players.

My thoughts on the the subject is that every team’s city deserves the chance to host the Super Bowl.  We can’t make the climate a deciding factor or we would end up blocking entire states from ever hosting a Super Bowl.  At that point states would file grievances with the league, teams and fans would began petitioning to possibly change the time of year that football season takes place…it could easily turn into a big mess.

Others have contested that New York should have a dome if they want to hold a Super Bowl there.  Why?  Is it fair that a team should have to give up the greatest advantage of a home field game? 

If New York plays and practices in the cold, that would give them a big advantage when playing against say…Arizona or Miami.  The only way that you could force New York to have a dome is if you forced every other team to as well.

So it is what it is.  It will be cold, it may even be miserable…but it’s still the Super Bowl, and I’ve got Denver.
