That is correct and is totally in line with my thinking.

Looking forward to Carolina vs Arizona, two great teams.
+2 from another Pats fan.

Denver's defense won the game. I'll be rooting for Payton to win another one before he retires.

Unlike the AFC title game the NFC game was one sided and rather disappointing. Arizona was outmatched.

Carolina has peaked at exactly the right time. I definitely wouldnt be going all in on Denver. I cant see anyway Denver's offense will be able to move the ball against Carolina. It should be relatively low scoring but I see Carolina with an easy win in the SB.

I don't see how Denver can beat Carolina. My guess is Carolina 30, Denver 17.

Carolina looks really strong. I'll be rooting for Peyton and the Broncos, but I suspect they are toast.

The most lopsided Super Bowl was Super Bowl XXIV: San Francisco 49ers 55, Denver Broncos 10.

I'm afraid that the Broncos might become the record holders yet again.

Seems like Carolina has been peaking most of the season.

I only caught the 1st part of the Carolina vs Arizona game, but it made me feel better for the Seahawks. At least that game was interesting in the 2nd half. Looking at the final score, it doesn't look like that was the case for this game.

I'm rooting for the Panthers, but I wouldn't be disappointed if Broncos win either. Either's a good outcome IMO. I just hope for good SB game.

Watched bits and pieces of the Denver vs Pats game. I was at the airport waiting to return from a trip. Then when boarded, a guy two seats over had the game on his laptop so I was taking a peek at plays here and there. I got totally confused at the missed 2 point conversion as I forgot the play died after the fumble and thought the Pats could kick a field goal to win.

The SB is gonna be a tough choice. Two very sound defenses.

I hope the Bronco D is good enough to stop the Panthers.

I think its good enough to slow them down alot, but I dont see the Bronco offense being able to move the ball on Carolina. The Carolina pass rush is in rare form right now.

Carolina will have their hands full with Denver's defense...BUT I never expected Carolina would destroy Arizona like that, so I'm not qualified to predict anything! Just hope it's a better game than the two yesterday (they were just OK for fans other than Car & Den IMHO).

Hard for us to watch Brady sewn up like that, rush & secondary coverage - no where to turn, you have to hand it to Denver's defense. And DW switched to HGTV reruns early in the second half when it became apparent Carolina was going to run away with it, evidently it just got worse...

I thought Brady and his offensive line played poorly against the Broncos until I saw the stats for Carson Palmer with 4 Int's and 2 fumbles.

I am pulling for Manning to win another SB but I'm not sure Denver's offense can do much against the Panthers' defense. Now that my team is out I am hoping for a competitive game unlike Denver's last SB appearance.

man did Vollmer have a bad game or what?


I think he got beat every down I watched. Left tackle is a tough position.

Marcus Cannon on the other side had a worse game. Heck everyone on the offensive line was horrible. When your QB gets hit 22 times you know your whole unit stunk up the joint....

Not too scientific but while I was watching the game at a sports bar in the airport (in FL), I say there were definitely more Pats fans than Broncos fans. Maybe 2 to 1 and several with Gronk jerseys.

I'm wrestling with choosing a winner in the SB. Of course we know Manning's record isn't the best during the playoffs. Yet, the one SB he won was against Rivera's defense for the Bears. I'm sure the hype will be a lot about Manning but I think the game is more about the Broncos' defense vs the Panthers' defense.

My heart goes to Denver but my mind says this is the Panthers' year (except that one blemish against the Falcons). In other words, I'm undecided at the moment.

I would have voted for Denver until I saw that Cards blowout. Now my money is on those guys who whipped Seahawks.
