:? Since the NFL stupidly waived the dome requirement for northern states stadium for this game, I'm predicting a big win for: :wasted:

Yeah how do the Giants, one of the big market teams, not get at least a retractable dome on their new stadium. I mean WTF. No way the NFL will do this again, they'll have to stick with warm weather or domed stadiums after this. Pulling for Seattle, as I don't think they've won a Super Bowl before, but have a feeling Denver and Peyton will be too much for them. My roommate is from Seattle, so he's pulling for the Seahawks as well.

Correct - this is only Seattle's second Super Bowl appearance.

Now reports are coming in saying it'll be about 40 degrees come game time and not too windy so weather will probably not be a factor in this game.

Seattle will win a close game for these four reasons:

1. Seattle's defense will keep Denver's offense in check, or at least limit them to a more reasonable point total.
2. Seattle's offense is better than Denver's defense.
3. I'll take Lynch over Moreno ANY day of the week.
4. Pete Carol is five times the coach that John Fox is.

Predicted score: 33-28, Seattle

Can't wait for the game. Hate that the Giants aren't playing in it, but I always tend to find a team to root for. Though I will say this -- the only Super Bowl I would never ever watch would be Dallas - New England; that would sicken me. I'll leave it with "Go Broncos"!

Ugly game - I mean it wasn't even exciting to watch. You know it's not good when game starts off with a botched coin toss lmao. Congrats to the Seahawks.

Yeah congrats, that Seattle defense swarmed like a bunch of buzzing bees. I guess the end zone wasn't Peyton's Place, not for long anyway.

As a Giants fan, I do kind of like that Eli still has more Super Bowl rings than his brother Peyton. Yeah yeah, Peyton is better overall, an all-time great no doubt, but Eli seems to be better in the clutch big game situations. I kind of hope Eli wins one more before he retires too, would be nice if he could achieve that with Coughlin, would be a good way for them to go out.

Seattle outplayed Denver in every aspect of the game--exactly as I predicted! Pete Carrol going for it on fourth down on the opening drive set the tone for his team while John Fox looked confused and lost on the Denver sideline. Offenses secures records. Defenses win championships!

Which a lot of people seemed to be doubtful of because of the recent rule changes in the NFL making defense more difficult, but in time teams find a way to adjust to new rules and now I'm hearing other teams will probably look at Seattle as a template of how to play defense in the NFL with the modern rules.

I was kind of hoping for that shutout towards the end. Has there ever been a shutout in a Super Bowl game?

No I don't believe so. The closest was the '71 Miami Dolphins (Super Bowl in 1972), they only scored 3 points. But then they followed that up by going undefeated and winning the Super Bowl the next year.

Wow and this one was close too. What the hell was Andy Roddick doing on the post game show on Fox Sports 1. Stick with the football guys for football, didn't seem too prepared.
