Super Bowl Sunday open thread

posted at 2:01 pm on February 2, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Ed: Ah, Super Bowl Sunday has arrived, which means it’s the end of the NFL season and the end of cheap, easy posts on Sunday for another seven months. Thanks to a two-week run of perfect predictions, I get to start off the last post of the 2013 season. Thank goodness that Team Rice went for two points at the end of the Pointless Bowl, eh? And by the way, that actually turned out to be a fun game to watch. Too bad I was the only one watching it.

Jazz: Did you say an easy post? Heck, I squeezed two out of it this weekend before the clock runs out. As to the Pointless Bowl and Ed’s bragging rights… fair enough. Congrats. I had to find out whether I won or not the following morning since there was a re-run of Ancient Aliens which I’d only seen twice at the same time. Congrats to Team Rice. Hope you enjoyed your free trip to Hawaii.

Ed: All right, let’s get to the big game itself. This year we don’t have the super-hot wild-card team coming out of nowhere to contend for the championship, but two solid division winners who beat tough rivals to make it to the final dance. Denver’s known for its top-ranked explosive pass offense, and Seattle’s defense is top-ranked against the pass. It’s the ultimate unstoppable force meets immovable object clash.

Jazz: I’m with Ed in looking forward to this game in terms of seeing two teams who legitimately earned their spots, not just in the playoffs, but with full seasons of solid play. I love a good underdog story as much as the next guy, (particularly if it involves the Jets) but it’s refreshing to see a real battle of the Titans. (With all due apologies to Tennessee fans.) There are sentimental stories on both sides, with Peyton ostensibly “on his way out” and wanting one more trip to the winner’s circle to put some icing on the cake of his career. But you’ve got to love the attitude of a – ahem – certain defensive player with the Seahawks who is looking for additional vindication. Defensive powerhouses do tend to do better in the Big Game, but that’s not the only deciding factor. There’s no home field advantage, but one of these teams is known for doing better in a loud environment. They may not be at home, but in New Jersey you should be able to generate those levels of noise just from the locals yelling, “YOU TALKIN’ TO ME???

Ed: Richard Sherman may be looking for more vindication, but some Denver receivers probably plan on talking with their play today, too. ESPN does note that big-scoring offenses tend to do poorly in Super Bowls, but this year will be different for a couple of reasons. First, Denver’s peaking again in the playoffs. They dominated the Pats two weeks ago, which you don’t usually see with the Belichick/Brady combination. Seattle barely got past the wild-card 49ers two weeks ago in a sloppy game from both sides. Peyton Manning has tons of experience playing at this level, while it’s going to be very new to Russell Wilson and most of the marquee players on the other sideline. This should be a great game to watch, but I’ve got to go with Manning and Denver by six, 33-27.

Jazz: Much as with the last two weeks, I don’t have any real personal investment in either of these teams and will really just be watching for the entertainment value of a (hopefully) great game. But I’m taking the traditional side of the better defense carrying the day. Also, while it may have had a couple of misfires, the majority of the time this season has shown that one of the most reliable predictors for a team’s imminent downfall on any given week is Ed Morrissey picking them to win. I’ll take the Seahawks in a somewhat lower scoring war in the trenches, 24-13.

Ed: By the way, I put the over-under on so-weird-they’re-controversial Super Bowl commercials at four.

Jazz: I’m predicting no real surprises or majorly hyped controversies from the commercials, simply because they’ve been leaking them out ahead of time. What fresh hell is this? Now we’re watching commercials for commercials? Seriously?

If you really despise Peyton, isn’t that a reason to tune in to root hard for the Seahawks? Yeah it will suck that much more if Peyton wins and you have to see his joy and all that. But that’s what makes watching the game interesting and exciting. The risk of caring and losing.

I have to wonder how passionately a person can be for sports if they need to risk money in order to generate excitement. And I say this as someone who loves to gamble. But the Wheel of Fortune machine in Vegas is only fun because of the chance to win money. Football is its own drama, and should excite passions whether you have money on it or not. But that’s me.

As a Seahawks fan I’ve endured 37 years of disappointment, losing seasons and missed chances. Remained faithful since the days of Zorn & Largent. Suffered through the Ground Chuck Knox years. Endured the Bosworth debacle. Watched Bo Jackson single handedly run over us on Monday Night Football. Just when I think enough is enough and we’re due, this happens …

Injury is part of the game. You play with the team you have. No one cheated. The Seahawks beat other teams, that’s the end.

libfreeordie on February 2, 2014 at 2:19 PM

On topic, and I know it’s going to sound like something, but fieldgulls has a lengthy analysis but it all comes to these two short paragraphs:

I think that Denver’s passing game [and offense] is slightly better than the Seahawks’ defense…

[But look at: ] The Seahawks’ Offense vs The Broncos’ Defense

This is the matchup that is going to garner headlines after the game. Frankly, I think that the Seahawks’ offense is significantly better than Denver’s defense. Adding the dimension of Percy Harvin will only make this gap even larger.

Lanceman on February 2, 2014 at 2:19 PM

Today, Coach Manning and Quarterback Manning are one. Plus, Broncos being Spanish for Bronx, it’s sort of a home game for them. So, Denver over the Seahawks, 24-20.*

. *My newest favorite cornerback, Sherman, gets a pick against Manning.

TXUS on February 2, 2014 at 2:21 PM

When the top offense goes against the top defense, the defense has won almost 80% of the time.

Seattle will win this thing if they can hold the Broncos under 30 points and hold Manning to less than 350 yards passing. I think they’ll do it. My prediction is Seattle 28 Denver 24.

Lanceman on February 2, 2014 at 2:43 PM

Going to cheer for the Sea Hags, despite the fact that Pete Carroll, it turns out, it s Troofer. So I will be cheering for the city and the team itself, but not the coach. Used to have a lot of respect for Pete, but he lost it with that BS.

And now, time for my annual Hot Gas Super Bowl Thread post on the New England Patriots. Pinch-hitting this year is Marshall Faulk, whose team was a 14 point favorite in the 2002 game.

“It’s not like I hadn’t played that team before. It’s not like I didn’t know what they were going to do to me. That’s fine. And up until that day that we found out that information, you had never heard me say anything about that team or about what they did. And I still consider [Bill] Belichick one of the greatest coaches. I still consider Tom Brady one of the greatest players. That team and what they did, and went on that run, it was great. The only thing that bothers me is there’s something that exists that gives us doubt on why the game went the way it did.”

Faulk, who retired after the 2005 season, wouldn’t call the Patriots cheaters outright, but he was more than willing to insinuate the fact during the interview, even questioning their three Super Bowl victories and asking why they haven’t won since being outed. “The question is, how did they become a championship team? … Listen, I’m not going to be the only one to say this: Ever since they got fined and, ‘OK, we’re not doing that anymore,’ they’ve won how many Super Bowls?” he asked.

Faulk also exhibited some BDS:

“Hating the Patriots would be crazy. That would mean I hate Tom Brady, and I love what Tom has done,” Faulk said. “I think they get upset because I look at being the [second] overall pick going to a team, changing the franchise when people expect you to. I consider that to be a more daunting task than coming from being a sixth-round pick when nobody is expecting you to do nothing and taking the team to a Super Bowl. I just think that’s a harder thing to do. Because I know what changing the Colts organization is like. I failed at it once, and I succeeded another time. So, it’s a lot. It’s a lot to do. And not to just do it, but do it and be considered one of the greats, if not the greatest quarterback of all time.”

Poor Baby!

I would imagine this forum is a small part of his world. Hardly his sole response.

Maybe his sole response to YOU.

Well I’ve been a Bronco fan for too many decades to mention, so I like Ed’s prediction. He better be right hahaha! I would love to see them win another super bowl, they have a great team and they worked really hard this year and made it through a tough schedule. Peyton doesn’t want this win any more than the rest of the team, and he may not be retiring like everyone is speculating, either. GO BRONCOS!

Exactly what my reaction was. I can’t believe they have given a political twist to their broadcast. Too bad I usually like the puppy bowl.

Seahawks 24
Denver 13

(Richard Sherman will score 6 of the 24 points)

First super bowl in many years I won’t be watching. But I really despise Peyton, so there’s that.

Not hat it has much to do with the price of tea in china but why would that be, just curious?

It wasn’t, but your obtuse state makes me schadenfreudig.

I’ll spare you a prediction on the game.

Hey what’s on everyone’s menu?

We had turkey pastrami sammiches and fries for lunch. Brat’s special chez mix is in the oven. Haven’t decided on dinner yet…either kielbasa/sauerkraut/pierogies/cornbread/greens or take out pizza for dinner.
