Super Bowl Week – time for a SUPER 6 Pack
1-Easy one to kick it off – Who wins the Super Bowl Sunday, Score & MVP?
Matt – Giants 27 – Patriots 21 : Eli Manning MVP. I think we are in for a really decent game.
Wendt – I'll take the Giants. 27-21. MVP is Ahmad Bradshaw
Painter – Picking Patriots in this one. I've never had a problem with Brady/Belichick. I'm not a big fan of anything New York sports unless it's played on ice
Blake – Patriots...because I don't want the Giants to win. 28-21, Brady as the MVP
BSox – patriots. sorry cannot go for eli, like if he wasn't a giant i could probably pull for them...but no. i'm not sure how well the match up and all that, but i'm pullin patriots.
Silker – Giants, 34-27, MVP is Eli. I wish it was different but the Patriots D only looked good last week and really I dont think they can make it happen two games in a row.
2-Media Day is one of the circus days in sports and media throughout the year, you get one question to anyone – who you asking what?
Matt – I’d ask Tom Brady if Jizzelle wears the Uggs in the family?
Wendt – I'd ask Tyler Sash where he got the "GBNB" idea from
Painter – Ochocinco would be my target (since he's pretty good about giving sound-bites). "Are you giving out free Priuses and McDonalds food to all of your Twitter followers if you find the endzone?"
Blake – I'm asking Gronk who's the hottest groupie he's ever hooked up with
BSox – If you played world of warcraft, horde or alliance, and what race human, elf, dwarf, ect...
Silker – Irsay, All I have to ask is WTF? We saw it four years ago when the Packers Favre feud was in full swing. However now this is a different issue. This is a medical issue not a health issue. I understand Peyton’s pay day is just a few weeks away; however you cannot burn the bridges with the face of your franchise. All of the fans know Peyton more than they know Irsay. Restructure for three years. Give him some money but have a medical clause in it.
3-Eli takes on big brothers nemesis in the house Peyton built. If Eli wins his 2nd Super Bowl Sunday, is he a greater QB then Peyton? Is it all about the Rings?
Matt – It seems like it’s always about the rings. Marino is perceived as not as great as any of the guys with rings or Elway wasn’t great till he won his rings. Eli is probably a top 5-10 QB playing right now. Is he better than Peyton, I’m leaning toward no. Peyton still better, but the margin is narrowing.
Wendt – Sometimes I think people put too much on rings and even if Eli wins another one and Peyton never does I'd still take Peyton in his prime over Eli in his
Painter – I've never been big on comparing players based on the number of championship rings. Trent Dilfer has as many rings as Peyton, Favre, and Rodgers (for now) and more than Marino. Does that make him better than those 4? Not in my mind. Eli in the playoffs is what Peyton is in the regular season. I think they are pretty equal in terms of talent. Eli plays for a more run-oriented offense and doesn't have the control of the offense that Peyton has.
Blake – Not yet. But, Eli has a lot more of his legacy to write. He still can become a greater QB. QB's are measured on rings.
BSox – a better playoff quarterback yes, but body of work? the dude has laid some big eggs before, and even at his worst, peyton hasn't been horrible for a really long time. but the two championships would come into play so i'd have to say yes, eli would probably be better. i feel dirty for saying that.
Silker – The Giants have given Eli the weapons he needs on both sides of the ball. Indy has only given Peyton some offensive threats with no line and no D. That showed this year with a horrible showing of all their QBs. So I have to go with no it isnt about the rings and Peyton is still the MVP of the family.
4-Tom Brady has a chance for ring 4, that would match Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana, where would he rank all time?
Matt – If Brady gets his fourth ring he is probably cemented top 10 QB all time. I don’t know if I can go top 5. I still think Elway is the greatest Qb to play. But Brady is definitely one of the best ever.
Wendt – *sigh* I still think Montana is the best of all time but Brady (if he wins) would be in the discussion
Painter – Just going off of rings I'd put him at #2 behind Montana. Not going off rings I'd put him somewhere in the 5-10 range.
Blake – Montana, Unitas, Brady...notice Marino's not on the list. Missing the rings. See answer number 3.
BSox – system QB or not, he's gotta be up near the top. he's been so good for so long its hard not to put him up there. i think it will be hard to ever pick the all time best number 1, but for this era...its hard to argue against him
Silker – I think Brady will be thrown off by the fact that he is a pretty boy and everything has to revolve around him. I think he would rank up there, but he still isnt the best. No matter how many rings he gets. New England has built a dynesty around both sides of the Ball. Brady is just a part.
5-Indianapolis is a cold weather location for the Super Bowl, joining Detroit and Minneapolis as colder weather locations. New York will join the 3 cities in a few years. Should the Super Bowl be up for bids like it is now amongst all willing cities or stay on a warm city rotation?
Matt – The Super Bowl is more corporate than anything for the fans so location for the fans doesn’t do anything. I like that it’s optioned to be rotated to the stadiums and maybe we see Super Bowl 50 in LA where it all started. It will be really interesting in NYC when its about 40 degrees outside for a Super Bowl. But with that you know there are cities like KC and Chicago that will never host a Super Bowl. It will be in Arizona, Miami and Dallas more often than anywhere else.
Wendt – I like the fact that anyone could have a Super Bowl so I'm just fine with keeping bids on it
Painter – The Super Bowl should go where ever the NFL wants it to go among active NFL stadiums. How cool would it be to have the game in Lambeau in single-digit temps or at Soldier with snow and wind? That's football weather right there
Blake – I love the thought of the outdoor Super Bowl. Football is great because it is an all weather sport. Plus, the only people that go to these games are the media and huge, beyond reality rich people. Let them suffer in the cold.
BSox – i think all the cities. football is meant to be played outside, and if people are willing to show up to cold weather games, i don't think that should stop them. can u imagine a muddy/snowy super bowl? that would be a championship.
Silker – ALL TEAMS should get a chance. The pro bowl is in Hawaii for all those that want a tropical vacation. For those who want the best game of the best, they can go to the new stadiums. If you keep it to the warm cities, Minnesota will never get a new stadium. Also, Chicago and Green Bay should get there chance as well. Everyone needs to have a chance.
6-The average person watching the Super Bowl will eat 11 chicken wings during the game, and it’s the most popular Super Bowl food. What’s your staple Super Bowl food?
Matt – I’ll probably be on the under for wings, unless there is BWW to go run, but gotta have bacon wrapped lil smokies with brown sugar sprinkled on them and nachos!
Wendt – Meat and cheese tray, chili, chips. I'm pretty much a basic junk food junkie
Painter – I don't really have a staple food. I eat whatever is available at the time.
Blake – Really, that's surprising, just because homemade wings are usually not as good. I won't argue with wings though, but any sort of dip is usually money with me
BSox – beer. pizza, dips of some kind. oh and of those little wiennys
Silker – Beer. Is that a staple food? If not boneless wings.
