Superbowl Afterglow

By evidentlyblog, published on Feb 6, 2014

How 'bout them apples? The city of Seattle is beside itself after the rare event that one of its teams not just won but dominated a world championship sporting contest. Admittedly, it felt so righteous to be on the dishing side of a monumental walloping. Most definitely I give homage to the true fans who live and breathe the ups and downs of the team and commit to it on a very deep level. I understand this commitment as seen through my grandpa and dad where the WSU Cougs are concerned. As the years tick by, a connection to a team can sometimes become so engrained that you wonder if you ever... (more)

What to Expect on Super Sunday

By Jeff Weisinger, published on Feb 1, 2014

To set the record straight, Super Bowl XLVIII will be played in New Jersey. The fun leading up to and after Super Bowl XLVIII will be in New York City.

Ok, now that that's cleared up, what happens when a powerful force meets an immovable object?

When the AFC Champion Denver Broncos and the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks meet at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey for the 48th Super Bowl on Sunday, we will find out if the "immovable object" that is Seattle's defense can in fact hold off the powerful force that is Peyton Manning and the Broncos' offense.

Both teams... (more)

Publicity That Cannot Be Bought - At Any Price

By Marta Tandori, published on Sep 28, 2013

Let’s talk about the World Where Publicity CAN Be Bought. Think of Hollywood’s big night, the Oscars, or the football season’s glorious pinnacle otherwise known as the Super Bowl. Companies that want their products and services seen by the masses are willing to pay an arm and a leg for the fleeting privilege. It’s a well-known fact that the cost of commercials during the Super Bowl and the Oscars are exorbitant, with companies willing to pay in the millions of dollars for a 30-second spot. Admittedly, a few are brilliant but more often than not, most fall under the category of ridiculously... (more)

Respect

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 29, 2011

Let's say that Big Ben and the Steelers win the Super Bowl. Let's say they win it by a lot. Leave no doubt as to who the better team is. Will Ben get the same respect as Tom? As Terry? Or will his off the field issues still cloud his on the field successes?

I have been keeping up with the online rhetoric from fans, bloggers, forum posters and it is still about 5 to 1 people who are holding Ben's off the field issues higher than his on the field accomplishments. The words rapist come out all the time. There are many people who are convinced that he was guilty on every occasion and... (more)

NFC Championship Predictions

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 20, 2011

... threw 2 interceptions and he was sacked 6 times. Cutler was 21 of 39 passing with only 168 yards in the air. The Packers had the Bears number all over the field. Now, the Bears are playing some better, but the Packers are playing at another level all together.

The Bears may play better this game, but it is only 3 weeks removed from the last meeting of these two teams and in that game the Bears were shut down. I look for the Packers to win this game and go the Super Bowl. In my estimation, they are now the team to beat out of the 4 left and the team that most likely won't lose.

Favre Retires ... Again

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 18, 2011

...season game of 2011 is played. Filing of papers means nothing....in the Favre world of being anyway. Besides, if he retires half of the sports media will need to get new jobs as he has been their only job for years now.

Favre also stated that he thinks the Packers will go to the Super Bowl and win it. He stated he thinks that Green Bay is by far the best team remaining in the playoffs. Most speculate that this is all in an effort to rebuild the bridges he burned with the Packers organization when he bailed on them in his first "retirement." If Favre doesn't come back to... (more)

Who To Cheer For

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 17, 2011

...for them as that would make me feel like I needed a shower afterwards.

The Steelers seem to be the last team left and the least distasteful. Granted, I'm not a Big Ben fan off the field, but I think he plays very well on it. I also admire the Steelers defense. It looks like come Super Bowl Sunday I will be semi-waving a terrible towel of some sort. Although I doubt it will be very enthusiastically.

It's very difficult for a sports freak like myself when my teams lose. Especially if those teams have had outstanding seasons in the regular part of the playing. It seems... (more)

In The Dance

By Deborah Horton, published on Jan 4, 2011

...dance leading up to the big show.

In the AFC, the Patriots are the top of the league and have locked up their division and home field advantage. Tom Brady and the Patriots at home in the playoffs is not something many other teams want to see, but see it they shall. The road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro once again. The Patriots were all but written off at the beginning of the season and then again after the trade of Moss, but they just keep finding a way to win. The Kansas City Chiefs have a ticket to the dance. With a 10 and 5 record, the Chiefs won their division... (more)

Best Of The Best

By Deborah Horton, published on Dec 28, 2010

... the same time. It doesn't make them that much better than anyone else. In the NFL this year, parity has been the name of the game. Teams can't take any game for granted because you never know when a team is going to rise up and be the best for that day. The Saints found out that winning a Super Bowl doesn't get you much anymore because a few losses the next season and you're just old news. Football and sports media has become mired in the "flavor of the moment" coverage that affects every aspect of American news and culture. I'm sure this Sunday there will be a new "best" team - if... (more)

2-Point Conversing: Super Bowl XLIV

By 2-Point Conversing, published on Feb 2, 2010

... but c’mon…have you seen that thing? It’s ENORMOUS.)

So expect a great game. Expect a shootout. Expect the Saints to come after Manning with all they’ve got. But don’t expect Manning to crumble; there’s no quarterback alive I’d rather have running my offense during the Super Bowl. Even if I don’t really want him playing with my kids.

GOING FOR TWO...Why Eric Karlan sees serendipity for the Saints

Forget about the numbers for a minute. Forget about how Drew Brees dazzled against defenses all season long. Forget about how the Saints defense... (more)
