    If it was Seattle-New England, I would have been rooting hard for Seattle.

    If it was Denver-San Francisco, I would have been rooting hard for Denver.

    If it were San-Francisco-New England, I would have thrown up in my Cheerios like last year's Harbaugh Bowl.

    Seattle-Denver was the best possible outcome from this weekend. Not sure who I'll root for. We always invite several neighbors over for a Super Bowl Party at my house, so if the neighbor who is big Broncos fan comes over, I'll likely root for them in his honor, even though I'm more of a defensive guy. I considered holding the Seahawks SBXL whining against them, but everyone from that era is long gone. I respect what John Schneider has been able to build up there, but it going to be difficult to field a truly dominant front 7 when the team is going to have to pony up big dollars for the likes of Russell Wilson, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman, etc. real soon.

    And for those who have been fawning over the Seattle unis, those things are horrendous. I thought that neon highlighter green as a staple uniform color when out with the old Orlando Thunder of the World League of American Football. When it comes to fashion statements in the Pacific Northwest, I think they should stick with the flannel shirts of the Nirvana era 90's rather than the ridiculousness that the Oregon Ducks and the Seattle Seahawks trot out on a weekly basis.

What did the almighty Brady score in that Super Bowl again? Against a SIXTH seed NFC team?
    When your arrogant like Brady and Bellicheat these type of things happen. They put their own goals above all others with their dishonesty and cheating. They are a false stat in the record book.

    All I cared was that the cheats and 9ers were out. It happened. I genuinely don't care what happens. I am not sure I would even watch it. Ice fishing sounds very cool right now.

    My girlfriend will kill me if I don't root for the donkeys. But I went to the Seahawks preseason game, and the people in that city were such a-holes I wouldn't root for the Seahawks anyway. Funny for two states that have legalized marijuana, the people are generally not too friendly, lol.

    Tom Brady will not watch the Super Bowl
    Posted by Michael David Smith on January 21, 2014, 9:21 PM EST

    The Super Bowl is America’s most-watched television show every year, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won’t be among the 100 million or more watching.

    Brady said on WEEI that he doesn’t think he’d be able to enjoy tuning in to watch the Super Bowl as a fan, a week after his own team was eliminated with a loss to the Broncos in the AFC Championship Game.

    “I don’t have much of a rooting interest, truthfully,” Brady said. “Those games are hard to watch. I don’t really see myself sitting down to enjoy a football game to watch it. Our season’s over. Truthfully, I could care less about watching the game. That’s pretty much how I feel.”


    So while you’re watching the Super Bowl, Brady will be watching Downton Abbey or True Detective instead.

    I don't have a problem with that. When the Steelers have lost the Championship game I don't care if I see the SB either. I normally just go to a SB party and drink as much as possible.

    A little off topic but a reporter asked Steve Smith if he would root for Seattle right after Carolina lost to SF.

    “You really want me to thump you upside the head?,” Smith said (via NFL.com). “That was the dumbest question, and that's the second dumbest question you've asked. I only cheer for one team. Actually, two teams. My team and my kid's team. Other than that I can give a bleep.”

    Great reaction.

    I still don't want to have to face him, he's now 11-11 in the playoffs and in the Super Bowl vs Russell Wilson. Which quarterback would you rather have in two weeks time?

    I don't mind the comment. I usually feel the same way when the Steelers are eliminated.
