I've got a feeling Cam is going to be off today and fall back to reality like his first 4 seasons. Go Broncos!

Cam is way off. So are the ref's. Really weird unsportsmanlike conduct call-saw nothing on the replay.

Not to say Denver is getting screwed... I thought the long completion challenge should have been a catch.

I thought it was a catch also...not sure why that was upheld. The next play was the strip sack for 6.

Talib may get tossed. That was a brutal facemask

Looked like it may have hit the ground then a bobble after. Since there was no camera angle that proved it didn't hit the ground they had to keep the call. I agreed with it actually but mostly because Mike Carey is almost exclusively incorrect.

Sloppy game. The team who can avoid mistakes from here on will take it.

Ealy vs. Miller for MVP. Defensive game for sure. Kubiak interesting going so much under center with Manning.

Wow. Three runs with Peyton Manning as your quarterback. That says about everything.

Teddy's performance against this ridiculous D looked pretty good in comparison to Newton today.

I don't know how players feel, but as a fan, I'd rather not get to the Superbowl than lose one.

All of my friends who are Panther fans are saying the game was fixed. God, that #### gets old.

Congratulations to the Denver Broncos, and to Peyton Manning. And to Gary Kubiak, who got a raw deal in Houston, IMO.

Also, I would lhave liked Jared Allen to get a ring, but his QB could not solve one of the best defenses that have ever been assembled. And to think... Teddy played quite well against them earlier in the season.

I would think so. That was pretty intentional-sounding. He probably made more in those two 5-second sound bytes than I'll make in my life.

That's the Vikings blueprint to get to the SB. In fact, it almost felt like I was watching the Vikings (settle for FGs, play conservative at the end, rely on defense). Wouldn't be surprised at all if the Vikings focus on defense in the draft and FA this year.

So glad the Patriots weren't in the SB. Didn't really care who won but it was good to see the Broncos win it. Had a small feeling Miller was going to win the MVP today.

As I watched this game I thought to myself; The Vikings *could* be in this game. Those teams both have the star power on defense. Peterson in the run game tips the scales though, in my opinion. :ripple:

Ok, that *might* be stretching it. It was encouraging to see both teams in the super bowl playing the same kind of football the Vikings do.

the team with the smothering defense won. bad look for newton last night. not going after that fumble was one of the worst "business decision" plays i've ever seen. also i don't see the need to grill the losing players after the game, but walking out didn't look good either. brady, manning and wilson all have been losers in that game, but still sat there and answered the questions.

Agreed. But to be fair: Both teams played pretty good defense last night and with a 14 point win, you really can't say the kickers won/lost the game so my post was tongue-in-cheek (to a degree). The Broncos gained the LEAST yardage ever by a Super Bowl winner so Carolina's defense had to be doing well also. My point was: (and you really kind of supported what I was saying) is that in a game where the team leans on it's defense (which Denver and the Vikings do regularly, and the Panthers had to do last night, but came up short) a good/accurate kicker is vital. Denver's defense was the "MVP" of that game, no question, but the game might have had a different flavor/outcome if they had been missing FGs instead of making them early on. Imagine the kick in the...erm stomach... the Broncos would have felt on the opening drive if instead of 3-0 they walk away still tied at 0-0.

Here are the stats:
Code:
Team                              First Downs               Total Yards          Yards Per Play          Points
Carolina Panthers                    21                          315                     4.2                      10
Denver Broncos                       11                          194                     3.5                      24


Without looking at the score, which team looks better defensively? Both played a good defensive game.

Aww I love the Vikings .. they couldn't win, a single playoff game this season. They are getting better, but IMO we need

a better offense, than we have. I like teddy and support him. Four reasons for us not being there at SB 50. 1. Our OL is our biggest problem, we can't pass

protect consistently and our run blocking is poor also. 2. Our wide outs and TE's drop too many balls. Rudolf dropped two TD's this season at least.. Wallace

had a lot of drops and alligator arm plays. 3. Our play calling does not warrant a challenge for defenses. The K.C. game this season I was screaming at the

screen, throw the ball.... Almost every defender was in the box...4. Winners step up more mentally, emotionally ...they rise to the moment.. we saw flashes but

the Vikings organization needs more Zimmer spirit. I think we are heading the right way but we are not there, yet.

You should have asked them, " If Cam Dabbed more, during the turnovers? Maybe Carolina would have won then, huh?? :thumbsup:

Post Re: Super Bowl 50
I'm surprised...

I'm surprised the Carolina receivers dropped so many passes...
I'm surprised Denver's defense played tip top/outstanding two straight games, I mean really impressively...
I'm surprised Cam did not get that fumble, or even try...
I'm surprised overall, that Carolina didn't win...

I did not dislike either team. There are a few teams I absolutely despise, and luckily Denver's D beat one of them 2 weeks ago.

Go Vikes!

Addendum: Halftime show--Coldplay was okay, then other things started happening. As soon as I see "booty grinding" on tv, I opt out. Good grief!

I thought it was a decent game, better then some. Cam is a self centered, narcissistic baby. Didnt it look like he expected someone else to get that fumble, that he was above it? That he was just too good to pick it up, lets one of the grunts? He gave no effort. Hopefully now there will be less commercials in them with Peyton in them.
