Admit it. Its a less than Super matchup

Recommended Posts

.....The stories during Super week had mostly to do with scandals and that's largely because

the most appealing aspect of Baltimore vs. SF is two guys who arent playing..

Nobody's scalping tickets to this one no matter how hard ESPN and the NFL Net try to sell it..

....Most folks wouldnt watch a regular season game between Baltimore and SF so its hard to make two

defense oriented teams with no great QBs (or offensive players of any kind) on either side interesting.

at least IU plays Michigan Sunday

and 'hate' is a good reason to watch...

but both Harbaughs are dull as dirt....this shapes up as a sleep-inducing battle of 'challenged' offenses.

I highly doubt that.. Where is"the word" coming from?

There's a guy who does sports business reports on ESPN-Chicago,,Darren Rovell....he may be on other ESPN outlets..I dont know

That's exactly what he said.

By game time....face value...///This is not a big deal///SF and Balt are a long way from NOLA...

Now face value is something like $450....but this isnt somebody like Green Bay or Dallas or The NYGs..who have national followings..and there's no great storyline or confrontation...

I would rather it be the Colts than the Ravens, but I like Jim Harbaugh and Im rooting for him to win. I don't know why this super bowl would be any less appealing to fans than any other super bowl is. It's a good match up between 2 tough teams.

Baltimore has great old vets..

but they are the best team in the AFC....and they are the second best..or the 3rd best..

If you are addicted to football, you watch.....but this isnt a great matchup no matter how they hype it

No doubt....but most will be waiting to see Kate Upton

Most? Really. The pro bowl had a 3.3 rating. The NFL draws big numbers. it could be the bills vrs buccs and people would show up to watch. I think you are off on this one.

Are you talking about her car commercial? Because she isn't even very hot IMO. I've seen better bodies on chics at Walmart quite honestly.

The Stuporbowl  sponsored by Nyquil . Half time festivities will include - Jim Nabors & Manti Te'o's  GF  singing a duet  . While the Lawerence Welk orchestra plays Nazareths " Love Hurts "  with special guest dancers the Octomom & the Oct' ets . A ratings block buster , Of course the censors will have a quick trigger should there be any wardrobe malfuntions

 

I can't wait .. :fireworks::woah::headspin: :headspin: :monkeydance:

Don't get ahead of yourself Mark, I didn't say I could ever get any of them, just that I've seen much better. It's just an opinion and a matter of taste.

I don't think oldunclemark is a fan of defense.

 

He likes his QB dream matchups.......

You may not like the game marc, but the potential audience is billions, and I see absolutely no suggestion on any front that the general public is disappointed by this.

 

Personally I think that it's a great matchup, and I'm happy to root for the Ravens. In fact any year when the Patriots or Steelers aren't in it is a good year.

While I have no vested interest in either team... I think it may prove to be a really good game.

 

The Ravens seem determined to complete their mission,   and SF's young QB  Kaepernick appears to be

full of confidence, and unintimidated by the fact that he's  new to the Playoffs and SB. 

 

I'm looking forward to it..   :cheer:

Didn't you post at the beginning of the season saying you we're bored with football and was having a hard time watching it? Me thinks your just aren't a big football fan. I'm really looking forward to the matchup.

    •   I have a feeling the Colts will struggle to sell out next year. Protests, concussions, off the field issues, and team relocations are turning people off from the NFL.   I’m jaded right now, and only watching the Colts games. I make sure none of the TVs in my house are on a channel of any NFL Game or NFL show. I used to watch the NFL Network religiously, but now I make sure it’s never on my TV, and I am thinking about dropping the channel. I would never miss the RedZone, but haven’t even turned it on in 3 weeks.   I am not breaking my perfect streak of watching Indianapolis Colts games, but the NFL isn’t going to see another dime from me, and I don’t care about any other games. 
    •   Remember there are offensive and defensive ROTY  awards. Malik Hooker still could have been a candidate, whether Kareem Hunt literally runs away with the offensive one.
    • It shows he can play and lets him get that hurdle out of the way and avoid a year longs rust from building up.     I also don’t think it’s the mentality of a punch drunk boxer, it’s a competitor who wants to play and help his teammates.  Now should the coaches let him play?  That’s a different story.     There is going to come a time when Luck is completely healthy and sitting him isn’t going to get him anymore healthy and playing him isn’t going to make him anymore exposed to an injury than anyother player is.  I get the impression from what Ballard has said about Luck they aren’t going to even entertain playing him until he reaches that point. So I think if does comeback it’s because he is healthy and sitting him isn’t going to help him anymore and they will want to knock the rust off, see what he has, give the fans hope for the future (yes that’s a factor), Show potential free agents he’s healthy, and let him get over the mental hurdle any athlete has after coming back from a major injury that he can still play and be alright.  Some of those matter a whole lot more than others but they are all reasons for him to play regardless of the record if he’s healthy.
    • If he is learning anything from being a lame human statute it is, "Never play  against Sacksonville again." Only a guy like Russell Wison is  going to avoid what just happened to Brissett 10 times.
    • He was shell shocked and banged up I think he should have been yanked.  He wasn’t learning anything standing back there while the Jags were teeing off.
