The aftermath: My thoughts on what happened at Super Bowl 50

Super Bowl 50 has come and gone and the Broncos are champions again. But there were a lot of thoughts that came to my head during the bout and I will just share them with you right now.

 

  • I am so glad the game was played in California. The California sun really makes it seem like a cool progression from light to night during the game. I wish I attended this game since it’s at Levi’s Stadium. Maybe next time. Although there were complaints about the turf again. But the NFL took care of the turf for the game, not the Niners, so this wasn’t on the Niners this time. Is field turf a possibility?
  • Don’t ever boo Tom Brady.
  • Lady Gaga is a legend and she did great. I didn’t read on any of the reports of people being upset but they are just fools.
  • I had thought that the Broncos pass rush was so superior that there was a chance it would upset the supposedly balanced Panthers team. That was the only factor I thought that would give the Broncos the advantage. That was it. Von Miller deserves the MVP award.

Cam Newton can keep doing touchdown celebration dances

Cam Newton did nothing wrong. He scored and he danced. But no matter how many haters there are, he had the perfect response. In fact, this response dates back to The U when they were running wild scoring a million touchdowns a game. You want them to stop celebrating? Don’t let them score. Until then, Cam is going to enjoy the game and dance and dab!

My own fantasy draft advice that helps you win or lose

I am only doing one fantasy team this year but I still think that over the past 10 years that I have done fantasy football, I’ve learned a thing or two. Here are some tips for all you fantasy geeks getting ready for the draft this week.

These suggestions are just that. I can’t guarantee victory for any of you, but hey, I’ll share what I know.

1 – QB in first round is OK and is encouraged.

If you have the opportunity to draft Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, Cam Newton or Drew Brees in the first round, you should consider. Based off their performances last year, they should do the same this year and put you up the top in terms of individual scoring.

In the league that used to be about running backs first, now it’s more geared towards the passing game. You should still get a running back in the second round, but if you can secure an elite fantasy quarterback first, that gives you stability in one of the most important positions.

Alex Smith, Patrick Willis, Jon Beason and that Twitter thing they’re using

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, read up on this story first.

When I signed up for Twitter back in 2009 to help my coverage of the 49ers, I didn’t know exactly what I would be seeing on a daily basis. I frankly think that unless you’re in a business, media or someone that requires constant sending and receiving of information, Twitter is actually pretty pointless.

I just got Twitter in 2009 just to help myself keep track of other dealings and as more and more athletes decide to sign up on Twitter, the more and more I feel that they either use it right or totally wrong.

As in this case, I think it’s a case of right and wrong for Beason and Willis.
