What's the Dream NFL SuperBowl?
What matchup do you think the NFL wants this year in the SuperBowl?
Here's the teams I think could be interesting in the AFC:
Pit, NE, Den, Indy, Balt, Hou
And the NFC:
NYG, Was, GB, Atl, SF, Chi
So what's best for the NFL?
Manning vs Manning?
RG3 vs Luck?
Brady vs Rogers?
Harbaugh vs Harbaugh?
Hou vs Atl and the new powerhouses?
If Vince McMahon ran the NFL, he'd make a lot of hype out or Pit vs NO since Goodell seems to hate those 2 teams the most.
There's some good teams in here, but I don't think people want to see bad QBs. They don't want to see old QBs. They don't want premature QBs?
So that leaves 3 guys left imho, Ben and Eli or Rogers.
We already had Ben vs Rogers. A rematch may be in order. It's the 2 most rabid fan bases on the planet. It's probably the 2 best QBs.
But why not intro a new story line. Ben vs Eli. Same draft class. Same number of SuperBowl rings. At least one big market to go with a small market team might be better for ratings.
This could be the perfect SuperBowl. The SuperBowl of the clutch QBs.
I think the NFL would be thrilled with either a Manning Bowl or a Harbaugh Bowl...they love to play up that brother vs. brother angle and show shots of their parents in the stands 500 times during the game.
The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"
The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"
This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

I don't know about the NFL, but my dream Super Bowl match-up is between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Carolina Panthers.
Pittsburgh versus the NY Giants. Rooney versus Mara. Ben versus Eli.
That would be a great Super Boawl
Steelers vs Cowboys would put the ratings through the roof.
True. But Steelers vs. anyone puts ratings pretty high.

We've not looked like a Super Bowl team at any point during this season, IMO. The fact that we're still talking about making the Super Bowl shows how much parity has changed the NFL. The Miami friggin' Dolphins have just as much reason for championship hopes as we do, at this point.

Not sure the NFL would want a third rematch of NYG v. NE, so I'm going to say Giants/Denver and the Manning Bowl would probably be their preference.
