who do you think will win superbowl?

 Falcons beat Pats 31-28. If Atlanta gets homefield, and it looks like they may have already, they are tough at home and a good well rounded team.

I wouldn't want that cuz then it's like "oh now rookie qbs can make the super bowl. it must be easy". I would much rather yhr super bowl be Colts-Packers with us beating the Pack again, of course :)

Denver.   They are the most complete team in the AFC.  I think Kaepernick will ultimately kill the 49ers.  Seattle is playing well but too inconsistent.

Patriots. i Think the NFC will be a toss up if Wilson and RG3 both get in. Seattle has a very good secondary.

Wait...you think the Redskins or the Seahawks are the two most likely NFC SB teams? Maybe im confused here.

 

Seattle i could somewhat see but they wont be at home so even that I doubt.

Seattle beat up on two awful teams and is working a hung over 9ers team. I do think Seattle has the potential to make some noise but I dont see a SB.

 

Rookies in the playoffs usually show their inexperience at somepoint. Im not saying its impossible but a rookie in the SB is still highly unlikely. Even a good rookie like Wilson on a loaded team like the Seahawks.

No just saying it's tougher to determine. because i think one of them will pull an upset if they end up not having to face each other in the WC. But if i HAD to choose i will say the Packers

No worries. my G/F and best friend are Niner fans. so having to watch them every week Niners would have trouble with every team seeded right now other than Atlanta.  I take week one wins and losses with a grain of salt so i think G.B would come out on top if they met now.

I agree on the week 1 stuff. I expect GB to get to the NFC title game.

 

I do think the 9ers were just kind of flat though. Im not sure Kap is ready honestly as a passer to take them far but well see. I think he does have some talent but he is raw.

 

I do know Seattle is a loaded team talent wise. I still just dont trust rookie QBs in the playoffs. Until I see one actually tear it up, I wont buy into them in that situation. That includes Luck.

 

Now I know rookies have gotten to the NFCCG before (Big Ben, Sanchez and Flacco) but none of them really tore it up at all. They all pretty much rode the defense and running game but that wasnt really enough when they finally faced the elite teams. Maybe Wilson will be the first but im not buying it.

I think Peyton is out for blood after everyone said he had the noodle arm. I also think with the way Denver is clicking, they have the best shot. Also a lot of the guys were on the team last year with Tebow.

It'd be cool to see the Colts win just for the story line, but I still love Manning and want to see him to another Super Bowl Ring. His time is less than Luck has. So torn!

I think the Broncos will win it over either Atlanta or Green Bay...and i know i may sound crazy, but i think they are good enough and will only be better next year...could be the first team to repeat in a long time. BUT, that's just my opinion

Seatle is looking dangerous right now

I might be inclined to agree with you IF they had home field through out, but they'rea little sketchy on the road.

It's between the Broncos and Pats in the AFC and Niners and Packers in the NFC. Although the NFC is much more open than the AFC, I could see any of those teams winning those games, whereas in the AFC, the Patriots and Broncos are on another level, and the Texans still have to prove to me there are among those two.

Since the Broncos would get the Pats at home, I think they will win and advance to the Superbowl in a classic. The NFC will be decided in the Packers/Niners game in the Divisional round, I really could see that one go either way. I hate to say this, but being at home I give the advantage to the Packers, so they will be my pick for the NFC Superbowl representative. In a Broncos/Packers Superbowl, I think the Broncos win, so they are my Superbowl pick. Although I could aslo see a Patriots/Niners Superbowl.

As long as I have someone to root for in the game. A Patriots/Packers Superbowl would be a worst case scenario in my opinion, I can't stand either team.

After we beat Houston at home next week and the Patriots beat Miami....gaining themselves a 1st round bye....I'm going with New England out of the AFC.

 

In the NFC.....Atlanta gets turned back into a pumpkin at home in a conference title match-up against Green Bay.

 

My Super Bowl prediction....Brady and a healthy Gronkowski outlast the Packers....

 

 

New England 37

 

Green Bay 34

    • For whatever reason, my last few films have been controversial ones. I didn't plan it that way. It just sort of happened, but I will admit that I have always been drawn to provocative subjects ever since I can remember. My latest review called "Confirmation" a 2016 political drama directed by Rick Famuyiwa slides right into that hot button territory as well. I promise to behave myself here & only establish broad brush strokes that the director portrays in this 1 hour & 50 minute piece of cinema, but it will be extremely difficult to restrain my true feelings since I graduated from high school in 1991 & remember very well the US Senate Hearings on Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas on TV & the sexual harassment charges leveled against him by Anita Hill, a former subordinate under Thomas's supervision at the EEOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.]   In the interest of full disclosure, I'm gonna be honest with my audience & say that I believed Miss Hill's testimony back then & I never thought Mr. Thomas should have been confirmed to replace Thurgood Marshall either & the director has this same slant or bias in this production too. Watching this flick took me right back to 1991 during the George H.W. Bush Administration who submitted Thomas's name for consideration to the highest judicial office in the land. It was almost bizarre to see younger versions of anchormen Tom Brokaw & Dan Rather, Andrea Mitchell, & footage of Peter Jennings & Tim Russert, former host of "Meet The Press" both deceased now. The picture does a nice job of blending fictional testimony scenes from Hill & Thomas with archival news footage from CBS, NBC, ABC, & CNN. It's odd to see the primitive nature of TVs & computers back then long before iPhones & iMacs were present in every office in America.    In a nutshell, the movie is divided between 2 sides: Those who believed that Clarence Thomas is being railroaded by groups like NOW [Natl. Organization Of Women] simply because he leans toward the Conservative side on issues & Those on the Progressive side who believed that Anita Hill was sexually harassed by her boss who made several unwanted advances & lewd sexual references toward her based solely on her appearance & physical attractiveness as he saw it refusing to change his behavior after numerous requests to do so.    Plotline: The year is 1991 & Clarence Thomas [Wendell Pierce] has been nominated to fill a vacant seat on the Supreme Court. The chairmen of these Senate Hearing is Joe Biden [Greg Kinnear] from Delaware. The process appears to going along smoothly for Thomas until a current professor of law at The University of Oklahoma named Anita Hill [Kerry Washington] decides to reluctantly testify before Congress in the Senate. I won't bore my audience with Congressional names or the staffers who work on their behalf on both sides of the DC aisle other then to say this: The bulk of this film focuses on the testimony of Hill & how Thomas reacts to the allegations leveled against him.    Clarence Thomas's supporters somehow convince Biden to deliver his testimony first & while giving his opening remarks Thomas claims that these sexual harassment allegations are false, unfounded, & that he treated all his female employees with respect. When Anita Hill is allowed to testify before the Senate, she tells the body assembled there in a long, prepared, typed statement that Mr. Thomas constantly tried to ask her out socially, bragged about the size of his organ, talked about several adult films he had seen despite making her feel very uneasy, & that on 1 occasion he made a deplorable joke about hair from a private region of his body being found on the aluminum can itself. As you listen to Hill say these words out loud, it dawns on you that all the members in these judiciary hearings are men with zero women in elected office at this point. Think about that reality for a second.    Despite the fact that Anita Hill is well educated, well read, articulate, a credible witness, & very bright; the following doubts & allegations are brought against her testimony: Why did it take her so long to bring these sexual harassment charges forward? Why did she continue to have contact with Thomas? Why didn't she just talk about misconduct sooner & bring formal charges against him? Is she just looking for simple fame, fortune, & publicity? Was she secretly attracted to him & Thomas declined her advances so therefore she wants revenge now? Did she get some of her crazy harassment allegations from books like "The Exorcist?" Did she develop a secret, sexual crush on Thomas known as erotomania like she's some sort of mental deviant?    As you watch the absurd theories cast against Miss Hill by senators who believe this is an unfair witch hunt against Clarence Thomas, it makes you upset or it made me furious rather than none of these male Congressmen ever considered the possibility that men in positions of authority could use their stature & influence to manipulate the situation to their advantage thru unwanted advances or even intercourse because they write evaluations on their subordinates that they oversee, they determine a women's future thru promotions or recommendations; they can blackball or prevent females from working at other law firms or any law firm rather ever again. Could a women studying law really saw no to her boss's advances back in 1991 with the 'boys will be boys' mentality? Sadly no, not really. Not if you wanna advance or climb up the legal ladder anyway. In addition, this really ticked me off. Anita Hill's claims of harassment weren't taken seriously in the Senate chamber because she was a black woman instead of a white woman stating these allegations against Thomas. What?!! That's absurd! Why should the color of the woman's skin even matter. That's freaking ridiculous & very insulting.    You wanna know how Clarence Thomas refutes these unsettlingly serious allegations? He calls the whole backlash situation against him a "high tech lynching." Excuse me? You have got to be joking. So let me get this straight, a former employee under your supervision who happen to be black just like you has committed a vile act of racist cruelty against Thomas simply because he was asked several times to stop engaging in lewd conversations about her appearance & Clarence claims that what Anita did to him by testifying is the equivalent to a hate crime? I'm about ready to smack you sir. And the worst part is that nobody in the Senate challenges Thomas on such ludicrous remarks at all. Unbelievable.    Hill even agrees to take a lie detector test to prove that she is telling the truth. However, many who oppose her assertions claim that the results are meaningless because testers can make anybody pass polygraphs if they want. Ah no, first you establish a base line with false responses & then you monitor a person's heart rate & breathing patterns for erratic fluctuations. The only individuals who can pass a polygraph are psychopaths & serial killers with no appreciation for right or wrong & no impulse control. Lie detector tests are almost impossible to fake as long as the professional examiner knows what the hades they are doing.    The picture ends with Miss Hill returning back to Oklahoma. She is tired of fighting against unfounded innuendo about her reputation & character assassination tactics. Once back teaching, she takes comfort & solace in all the letters she receives from women who thank her for opening their eyes against sexual harassment. Clarence Thomas becomes a Supreme Court Justice as we all know.    This film does make think twice about what you say to your female colleagues in the workplace as it should. Can you say some looks nice today without it coming across as inappropriate? I guess it depends on a person's tone, sincerity, & maintaining eye contact without visually wondering to other sections of a co-workers anatomy I guess. Lets roll with a B- on "Confirmation" because Hill & Thomas's performances were quite good & we never see Clarence believe he ever did anything wrong, even though he claims that he can't look his son in the eye anymore while undergoing the confirmation process anyway.    If I ever said anything that made a woman feel uncomfortable about her appearance or attractiveness, I'm sorry.        "Who's to say what's for me to say...be...do
      Cause a big nothing it'll be for me
      The land of opportunity
      The golden chance for me
      My future looks so bright
      Now I think I've seen the light"  
    • He has enough money if he has that big of a problem with this country he can fund a ticket to any country of his choice that he cares enough to stand up for. I am sure he has a passport so it's just a matter of taking care of his finances and get on a jet and fly the hades out of here.
    • You pretty much summed up my thoughts as well. It's hard for me to comprehend why he chose this way to made his voice be heard.
    • I believe they have amended the rules to 'touching the passer'......

    • Hello Colts Nation   I am a long time reader of this forum but never really participated in comments but hope to join in this season.   Been a Colts fan since the 'move' when i lived in Carmel.  Actually liked the Colts before that when i was younger but it was the uniform that appealed to me.    I am wondering how do I start a topic in a forum?  Do I have to have so many replies before approved?  I tried to find the rules topic on this but no luck.   Thanks   Edit: I finally found the section on the rules to posting.  :-)
