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.
This will only be the fifth time ever that these two teams will face off in a game.
The Super Bowl is here and it’s time for those predictions. This should be a great game featuring two very strong defenses and offenses led by two superb quarterbacks.
Here are some things I look forward to in this game.
A couple days ago I found and posted this picture.
I noted that it appears that they had started painting the Broncos end zone on the wrong side of the field before realizing the error.
Just today, my tweet generated some buzz and was used in some articles.
The Broncos will be making their eighth Super Bowl appearance in team history. In those games they have worn three different jersey colors. Here are their records.
The team just announced that despite being the designated home team, they will wear their all-white road look. I think they don’t want to wear the unlucky orange tops.
With this news, that means the Panthers are wearing their black tops. Those jerseys have been paired with silver or black pants in the past. Knowing that owner Jerry Richardson is a traditionalist, I expect this uniform matchup for the Super Bowl.
In the back of my mind, I keep thinking that the Panthers are so well-balanced that they will rout the Broncos in the Super Bowl. Cam Newton is playing at a level that is beyond anyone’s imagination. The running game is working well and the receivers, especially Greg Olsen, appear to be up to the challenge. Who can stop such an explosive offense? And pair that with the Panthers defense, they look like the top team.
I take a look at the Broncos and their offense is still figuring things out with Peyton Manning still not at his best. Will that be enough to win the game? I doubt it. But the Broncos defense looks so much stronger. The pass rush is phenomenal. I can’t shake the feeling that the Denver defense will overcome all the odds.
The mantra about defense winning championships is still true. And even though the Panthers’ offense looks so balanced, I can’t imagine how it will perform against the Broncos.
That’s what makes this a good one. It seems like the Panthers have everything going for them. But a good defense from Denver makes it so intriguing for me.
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.
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.
The NFL wanted to avoid this and they did.
The 50th Super Bowl will not use Roman numerals. Instead, for this Super Bowl only, the logo will feature Arabic numbers. It was determined that the stand alone “L” for 50 didn’t look good.
We still have the boring generic template of the Lombardi trophy in the logo. But with 50 in gold, it at least deviates from the boring all-silver look that has been used for the past several seasons.
What I really like about this, at least, is that ‘s still simple. And quite frankly, anything would have been a better option than what you see on the right. It would have looked just too plain.
The following year, the Roman numerals will return. I like Roman numerals as is so I am glad this is just a one-time change.
But what do we address this Super Bowl as? Is it #SuperBowlL or #SuperBowl50? I must know the proper hashtag!
Fittingly, the 49ers are hosting this Super Bowl so the gold works out nicely in their favor in terms of aesthetics. And who knows, maybe they might even be playing this game.
Check out the host committee logo, too. It features the San Francisco skyline in fog. Very nice.
