Clearly I refer to Tom Brady who is the anti-Christ. ;)

Something about the Patriots have always bothered me. It was Bellichek for a while after his whole little cheating thing, but in general, something about their team is wrong. Maybe this time it's the Aaron Hernandez thing.

Not justifying it, but just about every other NFL team has at one point taped signals. How are the Patriots any worse than any other team that did so?

Because you say every other team has done it, but he's the only one that's been caught and punished for it. So until there are others, I can't really argue a point that has no facts to back it up.

That's not true

http://www.cbssports.com/print/nfl/stor ... -mcdaniels

The reason the NFL went after them is basically same reason why the MLB went so hard after A-Rod; they are ashamed of their own failure to deal with issues involving what exactly constitutes cheating, so they need a big name to make it stick when they do something. BB is basically the greatest coach in NFL history aside from Tom Landry and I doubt his overall legacy will be tarnished very much for 3 minutes of 1 game.

Now, I think A-Rod deserved what he got, and I think the Pats deserved to be punished, but, that does not mean that any success the Patriots have had since 07' should be attributed to cheating.

So many fans of subpar teams are celebrating their loss tonight if for no other reason than they do not want to admit that the Patriots are a winning franchise. They are just the second team to win 3 Superbowls and 6 league championships in the span of a decade and the only team to win their division 11 out of 12 years.

I was pissed at the Pats loss tonight, but guess what, I know they'll be right back out there again in September ready to dominate, and they'll be healthier too...

Well, I am glad the Broncos made it. I've never really been a fan of either of the teams Peyton has been on, but I like the comeback story he'll have following his neck surgery and basically being dropped by his franchise team, yet bringing his new team to the Super Bowl. I don't really care for the 49ers due to what I see as their ego-centric showmanship, so I hope that the rookie Seahawks QB can take them to meet the Broncos. I think it'll be a good match that way.

Always have been a Manning fan... super glad to see him going back to the Super Bowl, especially after the Colts let him go. Outside of Manning being in the Super Bowl... the next most exciting thing is the commercials; although I wasn't too impressed with them last year.

Yeah, the commercials weren't nearly as good last year... hopefully they'll be better this year...

So it's down to the Bronco's vs the Seahawks... not really a fan of either team, but I think I'm going for the Bronco's this year.

and I'll continue my hope that Romo will retire in the off season and the Cowboys can maybe get a new quarterback that can handle a little pressure without throwing an interception.

Yeah, Peyton is pretty classy, I am also glad he made it after the team change. I understand why the Colts let him go... it made sense... but was it the right thing to do? Not at all. The guy has buildings named after him in Indianapolis. You don't just ditch a franchise quarterback like that. Gives me a bad taste for the Colts organization after that happened.

For the outcome... I don't think I feel strongly either way. I think it would be awesome to see Peyton win a super bowl after being dumped by the Colts. At the same time, I think the Seahawks have earned it, especially after the constant dogging on their "shorter than average" quarterback. He's a rookie though, and his last game wasn't pretty. I think ultimately, he'll probably choke if Denver can put up a good defense.

Ditto on Romo. In fact... if all of the Cowboys just retired, I think it'd be a better team for it. Terry Jones can stay though, I like Wingstop.

Hope I don't ruin it for you, Titan, but I believe a majority of the Super Bowl ads are already posted online. That's cool that you can watch them at will... but it kind of takes away from the event itself unfortunately.

Could always trade him to NY for Sanchez.....I'm sure that'll be an IMPROVEMENT (LOL)!

Based off of the game, I'm gonna be rooting for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. I HATE Manning.

I'm looking forward to the game. I'm not really a fan of either team, but Manning coming back with Denver and winning it would be pretty awesome.

I normally don't really go for either team and I'm not even sure who I want to win yet. Since my team isn't in it, I'll prolly be focusing on the commercials but I'll watch the game and hope that it's pretty interesting!
