    The Super Bowl

    Okay, I've gotten enough messages, I get it. Many of you want to know what I think about the SB. Place your bets....

    Here's the deal. Defense wins championships. Seattle is #1 in total D, Denver is #1 in O.

    D > O

    But! Denver's rush defense is #7, and Seattle depends on the run. So......

    if the Broncos contain Seattle's running attack, they can hold them under 20 pts. Maybe as low as 13 or 14 pts. Obviously that means that all Denver needs to do is score 21 and they will be SB champs. I think Manning can hang 21 on Seattle, even against that stout pass defense. I can not/will not assume things will happen. For instance, "what if!" Manning has an off-day? Well, then Denver will probably lose. But, all I can do is assume all aspects of both teams "hold form." That both teams play up to their potential and perform like they have all season long. So....

    I'm not sure what the line is, but the final will be:

    Denver 21 Seattle 16

    Hope the ratings are bad. They've decided to go to England with a franchise. I'm think I'm done with the NoFunLeague.

    Yeah, but you've had it explained to you a zillion times, watching a good defensive team is boring.

    Re: The Super Bowl

    Man, Denver never showed up at all. Glad I decided, on a little urging from a friend, to actually bet on Seattle instead.

    Defense wins championships. This game marked the 5th time in Super Bowl history the #1 D and O hooked up. It's now 4-1 in favor of the D. Hmmm, which #1 O managed a win? need to look that up.

    Yeah, I thought Seattle was better. And yeah, I KNEW the NFC was tougher, at least this year. Even thought that any of 6 NFC teams would have beaten Denver last night. In addition to who did, add: Saints, Niners, Panthers, Cardinals, and Packers. And maybe the Eagles too. But, I never imagined the Broncos to completely cave in from the opening whistle. Kept expecting Manning to get the Broncos back into the game. Maybe not come back and win, but at least make Seattle a little nervous. Nope! never happened.

    What a dud of a Super Bowl.

    I've always thought Manning was overrated. All he does is throw short passes to pad his stats. He seldom wins the big game.

    That loss was not on Manning. Seattle figured out how to get to him and they did. Also, it appears that pass interference is now a relative call. They knew the non-calls were going to happen going in so I blame it on the Denver coaching staff for not making adjustments to protect him.

    Re: The Super Bowl

    Some of the pundits are, or WERE, trying to cast Peyton Manning as the best QB ever. Even if Denver had won last night, I wasn't buying that hype. Best ever? Really?

    Let's see:

    Sid Luckman
    Otto Graham
    Sammy Baugh
    Johnny Unitas
    Joe Montana
    John Elway

    and even...

    Drew Brees
    Dan Marino
    Roger Staubach
    Terry Bradshaw
    Bart Starr
    Tom Brady
    Brett Favre

    Feel free to add to the list....

    I like Manning. In fact, I like both Peyton and Eli and think they are both very good QBs. They are good. But, "best ever?" Nah!
