who do you think will win superbowl?

68 posts in this topic

Seattle looks good, but only at home. 

 

They would probably have to go to Atlanta, which Atlanta is good at home but bad in the playoffs.

 

49ers look a lot better with Kaepernick as the QB then Smith but they will have to go to Seattle and we just saw how that went.

 

Texans look good but if they go against the Pats again, they will likely lose. 

 

Pats make the most sense out of the AFC to go to the Super Bowl, as long as Denver has to go to Foxboro.

 

Broncos could win if they have home field.

 

As much as I love seeing the Colts in the playoffs, we won't make it past Wild Card Weekend.

I'm thinkin Denver for the AFC and either Green Bay or Seattle in the NFC. If it comes down to this I'd take Manning any day.

In August I picked Ravens to beat the Niners, so sticking with that, although not very confident now. But you never know.

I could get on board with this!  That would make my year!  We win a game or two in the playoffs and Manning wins the superbowl!  This year.  Next year, when we have more talent, I'll have to root for the Colts over Manning.  That'll be a GAME!  But I'd rather save it for next year...

Seahawks look dangerous, depends on how RW fairs in the postseason.

Falcons I think will struggle with a lacklustre run game and Matty Ice's limitations.

Me being a Colts fan aside, I think Houston are pretenders, 1 season away from being serious contenders.

Green Bay can put up numbers but you can't win against the competition in the postseason with a secondary as leaky as theirs.

Broncos can definitely make a serious push , AFC title game for sure.

Ravens can be contenders for the title if their defense steps up. The return of Ray Lewis would be huge.

The Pats could go all the way if they keep their secondary tight, and keep Gronk healthy.

The Niners HAVE to be more consistent, especially on defense. Getting pounded like they did Sunday just won't cut it.

My prediction: Broncos 20 - 17 Seahawks

Pats/Texans v. Packers/Niners

 

dark horses either colts or whoever gets in from the NFC East(cowboys/redskins/giants). Colts will be playing hard with pagano back and the nfc east is a lot stronger than their records. 

 

Broncos will be out early. Quote me on it. They'll either play the Pats or Texans. Brady has shredded that defense over and over and it'll be no different. Manning will quickly find out that he's not beating up on * AFC west teams anymore LOL.

I do think the Cowboys could be a dark horse if they get in, seriously. Maybe it's an NFC East thing I don't know but they would be following almost the same pattern as last years Giants. If the Cowboys win Sunday night maybe they are finally "getting it." If not then same old Cowboys.

 

It would likely be Seattle at Dallas though likely for the WC round which would be tough. But, maybe Romo could beat his demons from that game in early 2007. :woah: I think Seattle has become the new NFC darling though.

History shows teams with true franchise QBs win the Super Bowl. Rookie QBs dont win either. Colin K., Russel Wilson, Andrew Luck, Matt Schaub, RG3, Andy Dalton, Ponder and Flacco all get ruled out. that leaves Peyton, Brady, Rodgers and Matty Ice. one of those guys will win the Super Bowl. the only way to break that formula is to have the defensive performance of the decade like the Ravens. that means the Seahawks and 49ers have a slight chance, but I am not willing to bet on it.

I think instead of saying "true franchise QBs" you should just say universally accepted "elite" QBs. If thats the case it leaves pretty much Brady/Manning/Rodgers since I am not sure I put Matt Ryan in the elite group. But, then again there have been many over the years who never even considered Eli Manning to be elite and still might not now. He just turns it up at times in the postseason so who knows if another Eli is in the  group. Who considered Eli Manning to be anything great when he waltzed into the SB in early 2008 vs. Tom Brady's 18-0 Patriots? Not many.Sure you can argue the Giants D was the reason they won 2 SB's but Eli is still the one who had two game winning drives in both SB wins.

 

 

Kaepernick is not a rookie either. But, it will be his first postseason starting and many 49ers fans hope for a Brady 2000 type of story I think. It will also be the first postseason for Matt Schaub. The real rookie with the best shot is likely Wilson due to his defense but doing it all on the road if they stay as a WC will be tough. However, just like a 9-7 team finally won it all last year, a rookie QB I guess could win it all someday too. But, history is not on the side for the Colts/Skins/Seahawks. It's not on the side of rookie head coaches too.

 

Super Bowl history also does not favor QBs over the age of 35:

Yes, I should say universally accepted elite QB's, because that's what I meant.    

 

Let's just pick a year.  Since 1988 (24 years ago), only 3 non elite QBs have won the Super Bowl.  Doug Williams, Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer.  And you could make a case for Williams, who was actually pretty good.  Everybody else is a universally accepted elite QB.  That's mind boggling and yet fans forget that every year or they think this will be one of those upset years.  So, I still say if you look at the best QB's in the playoffs this year, one of them will win the whole thing.

I think if Brees made the playoffs it would have made the NFC "elite" convo a bit more interesting. Matt Ryan is still on ice......not sure yet on him.

 

And someday RG3/Luck/Wilson could be elite but they are not considered yet. Ben is out in the AFC but even some still don't consider him "elite". Same with Eli if he sneaks in.

 

If two of Manning/Brady/Rodgers are in the SB I won't be stunned at all, nobody would be.

 

But, history would favor Rodgers more too vs. Brady/Manning based on his age and the average age of starting QBs who win the big one and he fits the criteria for "elite".

 

Of course with a 9-7 team finally winning it all who knows what trends might end. :)

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.

I can't say I'm overly impressed by Denver, they look a lot like PM's teams in Indy. Kind of smallish on  D , play on the lead, recievers are not as talented, ok running game. I don't think they have what it takes in the playoffs to beat NE.

Brady was a rookie when they beat the Rams, or close to it.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]
