NFL denying throwbacks for 49ers in Super Bowl was best decision

The uniform matchup from the two teams’ preseason meeting in 2019 is what we will get at the Super Bowl.

The San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs are going to face off in Super Bowl LIV in a couple weeks and one of the first big news stories that came out this was the uniform matchup for the game.

The designated home team rotates every year and this year the AFC team is the home team. The Chiefs are going with the red jersey and white pants for the game. That means the 49ers will be in a white jersey. However, it was reported that the 49ers petitioned to be allowed to wear their throwback uniforms for the game.

The NFL denied that request and the image you see above is what the Super Bowl matchup will be.

It is the best move by the league.

My predictions for Super Bowl Sunday

Will Tom Brady be flustered on Sunday?

The Super Bowl is here and it’s time for those predictions. This should be a close game featuring the best of the best versus a team with a bunch of surprises throughout their playoff run.

Here are some things I look forward to in this game.

Monday morning hangover: Super Bowl LI edition

Accept the truth. Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T.

It’s crazy to think that since his first Super Bowl win in the 2001 season to this win from this season, Brady has established himself as the greatest of all time. He has been consistent and he has been unbelievably good. That’s seven Super Bowl appearances and five wins. He has four Super Bowl MVP wins as well.

He is fortunate to have that kind of stability. Bill Belichick has been a solid rock in the Patriots organization. The players have bought in to the system. It works and the Patriots are reaping the benefits of it.

The debate of whether or not Brady is better than Joe Montana has been put to rest. Even in my most biased state of being a 49ers fan, I can’t argue anymore. Brady is the greatest. Montana may have never lost a Super Bowl but Montana never played so well for so long. Plus, Brady has had a wheel of changes to the roster and still made players around him better.

Matt Ryan vs Tom Brady

The Super Bowl is here and it’s time for those predictions. This should be a great game featuring the best offense in the league vs the best defense in the league.

Here are some things I look forward to in this game.

Coldplay reportedly to perform at Super Bowl 50 and it will be disappointing

We had known for a while that this could be a possibility. Now it’s a reality. Super Bowl 50’s halftime show will be headlined by one of the most overrated, worst bands of our generation. Coldplay will take the stage in one of the greatest platforms in American music.

What a shame. The NFL couldn’t secure one of these performers?

Coldplay isn’t music that connects with the average NFL fan. Their music doesn’t get you excited. It’s slow, it’s mellow and doesn’t really bring much energy you would want to a capacity crowd at the Super Bowl.

My top 5 choices for the Super Bowl 50 halftime show

The NFL has not officially announced the act for Super Bowl 50. The halftime show is a very important part of the Super Bowl experience and even though we’ve had some hits (Beyonce) and misses (Black Eyed Peas) in recent years, I would like to think that for this 50th Super Bowl, the league would find an artist perfect for the occasion.

There is speculation that Carrie Underwood might be the best option and I don’t mind her at all. But her music isn’t my style. In fact, I think there are better options out there. Here are my choices (in no particular order) of who I would like to see perform at the Super Bowl.

Katy Perry’s sharks make ESPN commercial

Riding the popularity of the sharks from the Super Bowl, we have this. This isn’t too funny, but hey, it’s an attention grabber.

Super Bowl XLIX may have been the greatest Super Bowl ever

The pick that ended it all.

For years I have been claiming that Super Bowl XXXII was the greatest Super Bowl of all time. It had all the elements to a great storyline. Aging legend John Elway fighting for his last chance to win the big game. The Packers were trying to win their second straight Super Bowl. Terrell Davis, with a migraine, was the MVP. Helicopter dive. Down to the wire ending. The game was the greatest Super Bowl game ever.

Today, I think Super Bowl XLIX takes the top spot.

The game I just witnessed also had a great storyline. With the Deflategate scandal still in people’s minds, we have Tom Brady and Bill Belichick chasing history. We have an amazing defense trying to repeat as champions for their team. Both teams were evenly matched and this was expected to be a great game. The comeback win, especially the ending, will have people talking for years.

My predictions for Super Bowl Sunday

Who’s going to be mad at the end of the game?

The Super Bowl is here and it’s time for those predictions. It’s going to be a good matchup and this will come down to the playcalling from two very smart head coaches. This is what a perfect Super Bowl matchup is all about.

Here are some things I look forward to in this game.

  1. The first focus of the game will be Marshawn Lynch. How will the Patriots be able to contain him? I think Marshawn could go for over 100 yards.
  2. On the other side, the Patriots running game will rely onĀ LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen. Both aren’t feature backs but could they both be a strong two-headed monster to help the Patriots?

The Patriots end zone looks off-balanced for the Super Bowl

The end zones are ready for the Super Bowl. Both teams’ end zones are navy blue as it matches their team color scheme. I wish they would have gone with gray for Seattle and red for New England, but this was expected.

For Seattle, they have the team logo on one side and the conference logo on the other. For the Patriots, that is not the case. They don’t have their team logo because the team wordmark already features the logo. So in the area where the logo is supposed to be, it is left blank.

Patriots rarely used alternate logo.

It feels odd. It feels off-balanced. I don’t know what the solution would be. Could the Patriots have gone with the wordmark without the logo? They could have. But even if they couldn’t, what other option would there be? Doubling up the Flying Elvis logo would be too much. Maybe an alternate logo? The only other alternate logo the Patriots have is this, and that logo is rarely used.

So we have an all navy Super Bowl with an end zone that is off-balanced. What are you going to do?
