That WITHOUT all-pro Ryan Clady, might I add. It's ironic too in that Peyton is one of the least mobile quarterbacks in the league. That is a testament to his shrewd decision-making, ability to read off defenders and his quick release - attributes that if Kaepernick had, the 49ers would be making their second straight Super Bowl appearance.

I couldn't believe that last drive. San Francisco needed 78 yards, right? Kaep gets 56 of them in the air. The team has a couple of timeouts and 30 seconds to work with. And THAT'S when he decides to test Richard Sherman? Unbelievable! Peyton would not make that mistake.

So this year the SB is not sold out yet. Prices have even dropped. Why? Because of the weather maybe? Would a true football fan chose not to go to the SB because of freezing temperatures? I don't think so. I have watched games outside in snow and pouring rain. To me, that's kind of how it should be.

It's been many,many years since the seats at a Super Bowl were filled by "regular fans "

The commissioner knows this but he and the owners couldn't care less.

With the huge TV money, what are fans in the stands for except to make noise. Couldn't they just use canned noise? No, of course not. But I don't think attendance figures matter that much in team quality.

I'd prefer a nice climate to see athletes at maximum performance levels also.

Bad weather can be a great equalizer.

There is no guarantee that playing in good weather would produce maximum performance or that playing in cold weather would produce low performance. Weather is a part of football get used to it.

My opinion is athletes should perform at their maximum regardless of conditions, I don't get that theory. All this hype about the cold weather SB is crazy. Temps for NJ on Sunday are going to be in the 40s, by game time around 32, and no snow storm. Both these teams have played in those temps before I'm sure! People are talking like it will be the ice bowl.

I see Manning having lots of success against the Seatle secondary just like he has against every secondary this year.

Where you at now????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Scoreboard.

It feels good being right.

It was close to 50 degrees. Surely not tropical... but perfectly fine weather to be out and about.
