On a glorious Sunday afternoon, NFL fans were treated to two captivating football games that, when it was all said and done, totally lived up to their billing.
Twitter was abuzz as Tom Brady faced off against his arch-rival Peyton Manning followed by two future faces of the league, Colin Kaepernick and his 49ers squaring off against Russell Wilson’s Seahawks.
It was a day that featured two of the greatest quarterbacks ever, some questionable officiating, some even more questionable announcing, a gruesome injury and one rather startling post-game interview.
When the dust settled, the Broncos and Seahawks emerged victorious, giving us a Super Bowl that will pit the league’s most prolific offense against its stingiest defense, but not before Tweeters everywhere provided their takes on the afternoon that was.

No truth to the rumor that Superbowl LI is to be held in Siberia , even though Roger Goodell believes a Superbowl in London would be a great idea . Is he really serious ?
Kellen Winslow’s Jr’s $75,000 Escalade will be put up for auction by Sotheby’s , but the GPS unit will be sent to the Smithsonian . for prosperity.
Wil Smith’s production company Overbrook Productions would like to cast Kellen Winslow in the sequel to The Karate Kid (II). The movie will star Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan and Winslow will have pivotal role and scene in the movie . He will be seen whacking on and whacking off as Jaden Smith’s character Dre Parker will be seen learning the Shotei Ose (Palm Press) .
Having made ” After Earth ” , why would anyone believe that Jaden Smith can act ? Isn’t it bad enough that he’s knockin’ boots with a de-facto Kardashian by dating one of Bruce Jenner’s youngest daughters ?
Michael Crabtree says he doesn’t know why Seahawks’ CB Richard Sherman hates him so much . Crabtree shouldn’t worry , as the corner-back goes off on anyone he takes a disliking to ( Darrelle Revis , Aqib Talib and just about every other CB in the NFL that he believe he is better than) .
“Manning-itis ” has now been declared an infectious disease by the CDC (Center For Disease Control) as it has become prevalent within the Northeast , specifically the New England area and in Foxboro’ , Massachusetts,,.
Very funny Chumpy…especially the Erin Andrews restraining order… too funny…
And the Richard Sherman flaming ego will no doubt inspire future generations of low class taunting thugs
but the most insightful is the Mike Dunleavy comment… we remain in awe of the brilliance you deliver each day…
Say what they will about the weather, Al, it’s still (technically) New York. I’m sure they’ll put on a Super Bowl Week (or two) that will be unlike any other.
I’m hoping they take Winslow’s Escalade for a wash before they do anything with it.
And for the whole Sherman/Crabtree fiasco, well, let’s just say I’m pretty sure those two won’t be hanging out any time soon.
As far as the Super Bowl goes, I’m pretty sure Denver’s offensive coordinator, aka Peyton Manning, will come up with a game plan that will give them a pretty good chance to win that game.
I just hope the rest of the Broncos are ready to get hit… and hit hard.
Twitter gave gifts aplenty yesterday as I just remained on my couch, in solitary confinement (by choice), watching what these four teams had to offer.
Great games, great action.
It was a very good day.
This Superbowl is likely to be played at a frenetic pace, given how potent the Broncos and Seahawks’ have been during the regular and postseason .
KW’s Escalade may well become an artist’s creative source for producing something truly inspiring . Yet I can tell you this, a lot of comedians will make Winslow a really good source of their act . Just watch guys like Katt Williams , Kevin Hart , Paul Mooney and Mike Epps go to work on his @ss .
So Mike Woodson believes that ‘melo will remain in New York . His press interview with ESPN and others was far from convincing on the matter . Carmelo Anthony can opt out of his contract , but the most he can earn is not more than a five-year $96 million deal . Whereas remaining with the Knicks he can get $126 million over six years . It doesn’t seem worthwhile remaining in New York if the front office seems reluctant at present to bolster the roster to complement their All Star’s skill-set .
Based on the evidence I saw in Monday’s game between Knicks and Nets . No amount of personnel changes can make that team any better . Paul Pierce and his teammates laid down a can of whup @ss on the Knicks at the Garden . It was simply damn embarrassing to watch that Woodson coached team . Are there , actually any fans of the Knicks team willing to justify their allegiance to that organization at present ?
If money is not the issue, then what seems to be the problem ?
The players of Villanova basketball would like to send their sincerest apologies to viewers and fans alike for their — performance against Creighton (Blue Jays) . That being said ….. here’s to Omaha and another $25k going to the /b> Peyton’ Manning’s charity .
Creighton’s Ethan Wragge dropped nine three’s in the game and the Blue Jays made and hit twenty-one of their 35 attempts made from beyond the arc .
The Heat are having a tough time of it as of late as they’re 5-5 in their last ten games ? D Wade’s baggage or the very fact that the team just isn’t as good as last season’s roster overall ?
What a weekend of NFL football. Can’t wait for the Super Bowl… The league never seems to disappoint at this point of the year.
BTW. Emailed you. Let me know.
I’m not so sure about that, Al. I think the Broncos might want to set the tempo and do like they did against the Pats, which is dink and dunk with three to four yard outs then surprise them with the little bomb down the sidelines. Rushing attack for both teams will also be crucial.
It’ll be no easy task for Peyton. I’m not sure he’s faced a defense like this all season, if not ever. Seattle is just plain nasty.
Re: Melo’s future, I guess that all depends on where his head is at. Do you honestly think he’s as determined to win a title as some of the other stars in this league? If he is, he might look elsewhere. If he’s not, he’ll stay in the city for more money.
Did the pollsters just move Villanova up to fourth in the AP standings? After their loss to Creighton, I guess that just means the Gators will move up another notch by the beginning of next week.
Hope I answered your question. Let me know if that helped. I’m also down for whatever suggestions you have to create cross-traffic.
What are your plans for the Bowl?
It’ll be a great game either way . Yet the disparities of the experiences of both quarterbacks in the postseason will play a big part also . Peyton’s 23 rd postseason game against Wilson’s fifth.
Creighton simply upset the that’s all .
‘melo wants to win a title , but I seriously doubt that it can happen in New York ! That’s a badly coached team and they’re . playing inconsistent basketball . They’re projected to win no more than 30 games based on their current record 15-26 . ‘
Did you catch their(Knicks) loss to the Nets on Monday ?
Chris, I was to let you know when I “returned to the air waves.” That time is now. Stop on over when you get a chance. A snow globe Super Bowl and a snowless Olympics pushed me over the edge and I had to post something…
Should actually be a great one, Al.
I’m inclined to think Denver will take it but again, Seattle’s defense is frightening.
Clearly far better than Villanova’s.
And no, I missed the Knicks-Nets game the other day. I prefer to watch good basketball although I fear there’s not too much of that being played in the NBA this season.
Weather looks pretty crappy in New York right about now, Burnsy.
I get that they wanted to reward the area for their new stadium but I definitely would have liked to have listened to the voices of reason in that NFL boardroom who were the ones saying “NOOOOOOOOOOOO!” when they proposed to hold a Super Bowl in New Jersey in February.
