Here is my NFL Super Bowl Pick
(8-2 for the postseason, 163-93 for the regular season)
Car @ Den – Well, it’s finally here, the Super Bowl. My Broncos made it all the way, despite a quarterback controversy and facing the two toughest teams in the AFC. Having one of the league’s historically great defenses helped quite a lot, as did some mistakes by other teams down the stretch which led to Denver claiming the #1 seed & home field advantage. Many times this year I’ve counted the Broncos out, claimed that they were overmatched, doubted Peyton. But over & over this team proves me & many others wrong by playing incredible defense with a complimentary offense that seems to do just enough. Does Manning understand that now when he didn’t earlier in the season? I think so. He’s embraced the game-manager role and is now able to limit mistakes. Now, the Panthers & Cam Newton are a team unlike any Denver has faced. Their run-based offense can break out giant pass plays, and then there’s Cam to contend with, a QB who can beat you single-handed. Carolina is the favorite in this game, and they’ve earned that. But I’m done doubting my team.
