What was not mentioned in all the hype about Peyton Manning was Seattle destroying Denver in a preseason game back in Aug of last year. That score was 40-10.

You damn right there’s nothing to discuss. Brady if he wins another is the greatest quarterback who ever lived. His numbers in the regular season, speak for themselves. One more Super Bowl will tie him with Montana. And no quarterback has ever went to 6 Super Bowls.

In Brady’s eleven seasons as a starter, the Patriots have earned five trips to the Super Bowl, winning three. He has also won two Super Bowl MVP awards, has been selected to nine Pro Bowls, and formerly held the NFL record for the most touchdown passes in a single regular season. His career postseason record is 18–7; his playoff win total is the highest in NFL history. He also helped set the record for the longest consecutive win streak in NFL history with 21 straight wins over two seasons (2003–2004), and in 2007 he led the Patriots to the first undefeated regular season since the institution of the 16-game schedule. Brady has the sixth highest career passer rating of all time (95.7) among quarterbacks with at least 1,500 career passing attempts. In 2012, Brady became the first quarterback in NFL history to lead his team to 10 division titles.

Brady and Joe Montana are the only two players in NFL history to win the NFL Most Valuable Player and Super Bowl MVP awards multiple times. Brady and John Elway are the only two quarterbacks to lead their teams to five Super Bowls. He was also named the NFL MVP in 2007 and 2010 (becoming the first player to be unanimously chosen as MVP in the 2010 season) as well as 2007 Male Athlete of the Year by the Associated Press, the first time an NFL player has been so honored since Joe Montana won the award in 1990. After the 2010 season, Brady was ranked as the best player in the NFL.

He and Bill Belichick have also combined to form one of the most successful quarterback-coach tandems in NFL history, winning 148 regular season games and 18 postseason games together, as well as appearing in five Super Bowls together, all NFL records.[1]

True. And even the early Jones years were top of the notch. As his ego grew, the empire crumbled.

Indeed. Finally the ANTHEM the way it's supposed to be. Best part of the game.

Note to players and coaches- when the anthem is sung, stand up straight and quit lookin around. Show some respect.

Russell Wilson, Russell Okung and Michael Robinson included God in their tweets after the game last night (others may have, too but I don’t tweet, so just going by what I see on this site). Richard Sherman was trying to keep things classy:

The only time I go to JerryWorld is during the HS playoffs. Nothing will change for the Cowboys until the fans quit buying tickets. With the Party Pass tickets included, the Cowboys had paid attendance last year of 110%.

What I did like (because I am a HUGH fan!) is the way they snuck up on the announcement of the new “24”.

A quick vignette (15 seconds?) in the first quarter showing people running from a street-scene fire. Then third quarter, another vignette (30 seconds?) from the same street scene. Last (Q4), Jack Bauer carrying Chloe in the street scene really hooked me.

I made the right guess after the second vignette that it was a tease for “24” but wasn’t rewarded with confirmation until the fourth quarter (all-the-while, Chloe stared seductively into the camera...)

Cletus gonna watch AND buy the DVD.

re:”Note to players and coaches- when the anthem is sung, stand up straight and quit lookin around. Show some respect”

To be fair, the fidgety Seahawk player they focused on during the anthem happened to be the deaf player on the team. Most of the players I noted had hands on hearts and eyes closed.

BTW it was great to see Bears CB Charles Tillman win the Walter Payton Man of the year and appear at the SB. I hope the Bears figure out a way to re-sign him, the lousy secondary really tanked when he got hurt.

YES!!! Just think had we not had Rex Grossman as QB in 2006 we would have beat Manning in that Super Bowl. Peyton Manning should send thank you notes every year to Rex Grossman for all of those interceptions thrown during that Super Bowl.

Tillman is a must to bring back and rebuild the Defense. Yeah, we have a great offense but it is clear especially after last night that Defense wins Championships.

We switched the channel to watch some extended coverage of the post game. About 30 guys in the locker room after the game knelt while one guy said a quick prayer.

Thanks for letting me know, I missed that, but they may have it on one of the local stations tonight. I have read that many on the team are religious and pray before and after games (maybe even during, too - -don’t know that for a fact, but wouldn’t surprise me!).

Who gives a flyin’ F’ about the Super Bowl (Superbowl) and that club out of Seattle representing Leftist America? And why in hell would the NFL ptb have a game like this in an open air stadium in NJ...this time of year or anytime?

Because New York City is always a draw (if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere!). ;-). The game time temperature was 49 degrees.
The Super Bowl was the highest rated television program in the U.S., ever, despite the blow out. 111.5 million viewers. Last year had 108 million.
The Seahawks are owned by one of the most successful capitalist entrepreneurs in world history, Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft Corporation.
