Does anyone know what the predicted outcome of this weekend's big event is?
When I used to follow spectator sports (and place a friendly wager now and then) Denver never failed to disappoint.
Mostly me.

I'm guessing "the line" is Seattle +6 but I've quit betting on stuff like that.
(is that anything close to The Official Guess?)

Just curious . . . Yet I think it may be in the cards for Seattle on account of OKC stole their Sonic Thunder.

Normally I'd be for the NFC team but the exception is Denver v Seattle.

C'mon, Football Gods!

Not sure the line but here's my guess:

Broncos 31, Seahawks 21

Peyton gets MVP

This will be one of the most difficult Super Bowls to predict.

Seattle in an upset:

I think Denver because the weather will be a factor. Can't guess scores, I've never been good at that.

I want to see Denver build a decent lead, then watch and see if Seattle came win in a comeback.

If so, Seattle deserves it.

But I gotta go with Denver and Peyton Manning.

I want to go with Denver and Peyton but for some reason I see the Seahawks winning. Depends on whether Denver's new and improved D can stop Wilson and Lynch. I'm going to say Seahawks 24 Denver 20, but I want to be wrong.

I was pulling for the 49er's and Chargers. I think Omaha is gonna win.

Weather isn't going to be the factor they once thought.

Seattle's defense is great, but their specialty is to stop the run, and Denver has the best four-wide group in the NFL. Seattle D must get pressure on Manning or he could shred them...will surely force a lot of man matchups that enable the kinds of individual plays these receivers have been making most of the season.

On the other side, Russel Wilson has had a very up and down year; has already shown vulnerability to what might be termed early game jitters. Seattle cannot afford to get into a scoring match with Broncos, but if Denver D forces Wilson into a fumble or bad throw and gets Manning with a lead early, it will be very hard for Seattle to recover simply because they're not designed to score a bunch of points. They'd rather eat clock and let Denver die a death by a thousand nibbles with Manning on the bench.

Ordinarily, I like a good D over a good O, but this time, I like the Denver O - Manning in particular. I'm taking Denver something on the order of 27-17, 27-20, something like that. And if Wilson makes a key mistake or two, it could be worse.

Just the facts

Denver 12 - Seattle 10

Scoring will go like this

Denver - Field Goal (D3 - S0)
Seattle - Touchdown (D3 - S7)
Seattle - Field Goal (D3 - S10)
Denver - Safety (D5 - S10)
Denver - Touchdown (D12 - S10)

You have to go with Denver on this one......
Seattle has the better defense but Denver has the better offense by far.

I'm still thinkin' Seattle plus the points.
But I wouldn't bet on it.
Denver always disappoints one way or the other.
At least up until today.

Total points 'scored', 420.

I think that manning has the game of his life and Denver blows them out. At least that is what I am hoping for. I was glad to see Seattle in the SB until they wrote their whining open letter to OKC. Jenny Carlson wrote a piece congratulating Seattle on making the super bowl. Their bloggers responded with the typical whine...."you stole our team. OKC has no idea what it is like to have something stolen from them" I get the google alerts for OKC and it cam up several times. That's it, they lose on a whining penalty!

Peyton has a history of playing bad in bad weather easy win for Seattle.

I don't really follow football and didn't know that. You'd think they were better in winter weather.

OK. Just looked at the score on the internet. Seattle is laying the hurt on Denver.

I decided to watch the second half so I can witness the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

The first SB in recent memory where the halftime show has been better then the game. And that's saying something....

Well . . . At least the Broncos didn't disappoint me again this time.
Surprise the sh!t out of me, yes. Disappoint, no.
(I think the pre-kickoff line was Denver -2.5. If I was a bettor, I would have take Seattle plus the points. =)

Dang. I guess Denver indirectly disappointed me again!: I didn't place any bets.

Best comment about Manning's face I have come across tonight, courtesy of a nephew ...

"I'd say he's take his ball and go home, but Seattle keeps taking it from him."

The opening coin toss was more entertaining than the commercials. Worst SB commercials ever.

As for the game, worst SB game since...the Dallas-Buff game back in '93, except the right team won that one :)

As far as the on-field game goes, much as I loathe Pete Carrol, its hard to ignore the fact the guy knows how to put together a team and coach
em up. That defense is as ferocious and unrelenting as I've seen in the NFL in a long, long time. And Denver was exposed on every possible level - offensive line could not protect, receivers could not get open, and special teams were absolutely horrendous. Surely thought it would be a better game, but Seattle just came out with a white-hot rage and rabbit punched the Broncs into submission...

At least I factored in a safety. :)

I think the opening kick-off set the tone for this game, not because of how the result, but by even thinking you could return the opening kick-off after catching it 8 yards deep in the end zone.

Well sort of - there weather wasn't bad despite the dog sled team Joe Namath had around his body. It looked like he pulled a Cruella Deville on the losing team at the Pup Bowl. I got warmer just looking at him.
