Super Bowl Sunday baby ! . It's here , all nfl fans have to do is survive this horrible
PRo Bowl week and then start heading to your local Deli's and restaurants to get your
lucky number box. Broncos vs Seahawks, best quarterback in the game against the top
Defense in the game at the House that Eli built. The Broncos opened up as the underdogs at +1 and less than 15 hours later the spread moved 3 points to -2. Let me tell you why that is. Seattle vs drew Brees was a joke! . The 12th man is gone now and no more referee calls that will lean towards home field advantage at times. Peyton is a quick passer, the ball is out in less than two seconds so sacks are rare in this one. MetLife will be a Bronco heavy crowd because Eli playing from New York . The officials will make sure no cheap shots will b taking on both sides. Here are my 3 key matchups that lead me to believe in Denver hosting the Lombardi.
1. Coaching: Pete carrol is a players coach and his team loves him. Over the years Pete has developed a great special teams and defense and has now figured out the final piece. As a college fan I will always remember him losing to Vince Young and they shouldn't have. He finally got the best of Harbaugh from getting upset by Stanford felt like all the time. The edge goes to John Fox and here's why. Fox has been here before with Carolina and got his teams best game against the Patriots that year. They fell short but they weren't talented like New England. Fox has had heart problems this year and they have been playing better defense since his return to the sideline. I trust him to know the proper preparation to give to his boys . The other side who knows what they are going to do
2. Denver's wide core vs Seattle's secondary: Peyton has all the weapons he needs to find holes in the Seattle defense. Demarius Thomas is a big time playoff wide reciever and just because the Sherminator is on him don't mean he's not gonna produce. He will have catches in this game. Wes welker should have a huge chip on his shoulder since the last time he's been in a Super Bowl . He will be Peyton's go to wide that day if he is not scared to go over the middle but the quick read and screen game should be his . Julius Thomas will be overlooked , Seattle has already shut down Vernon Davis and Jimmy graham to no contest. If Seattle don't use the same 2 bracket Coverage like they did with those two they are gonna regret it. Decker is the X factor/home run threat, Peyton loves his slot guys in the red zone so decker might be getting multiple touchdowns. The biggest worry here is if the refs let the chippiness go.
3. Russell Wilson: I love Russell Wilson . The guy has been on my fantasy team for two years straight but this is the SuperBowl. It's his second year in the league but, his play this playoffs have been very scary. I would be worried in the two minute drill with the game on the line especially Denver's defense playing stout against Brady. I believe he will play his best playoff game in the Superbowl only because Seattle will run a lot and use Harvin in the screen game. If Wilson is down 14-0 I don't know if he has the poise not to force throws. He must use his legs and give with the defense gives him. Peyton may throw a pick 6 but I trust him to get right back out there and go down the field. 2 weeks to prepare is a dangerous Peyton.
4. I don't lose the Super Bowl.
