I must say that this is probably the first year that I have avoided all the hoopla that surrounds two weeks of hyping one football game. I barely watched a few minutes of any sports network’s coverage of this years Super Bowl and frankly I’m glad because this year they seemed to be struggling to try and come up with some unique storylines. For one, anyone trying to make a point about Cam Newton and the way he conducts himself on the field was tiresome and disingenuous. What he does on the field is fine with me and if you don’t like it, keep him out of the endzone. No one was going to get the exclusive from Peyton Manning that this would be his final game regardless of the outcome. That was pretty comical to see everyone try to get it from him and politely pushed it to the side. With that said, here’s my outlook on the big game. Continue reading

Too Much Pressure

All the attention is going to be paid to the fact that the Patriots reliable kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed an extra point in the first quarter. If he didn’t miss that extra point, then perhaps he would have made his next one late in the game when the Patriots scored a touchdown that would bring them to within a point of Denver.

Same Old, Same Old

Right from the start it seemed to be set in stone that the New England Patriots would prevail and defeat the Kansas City Chiefs. The opening possession led them to a 7-0 lead and the Chiefs defense seemed to have no answers for their passing attack. Continue reading
