I'm surprised by this game, I thought it would be better even though the media was predicting a blow out. Pats just scored again and the Colts have 7???

It'll be a good Super Bowl, Seattle vs. New England.

and it won't be in New England either....Brady still has to face the #1 defense in Seattle.

I know I'm 9 hours late to the party, but McCarthy really blew that one for Green Bay!

Both games were fairly surprising in their own right.

I thought Seattle would squeeze by Green Bay, but in no way did I envision Green Bay dominating for 55 minutes only to have it all come apart. Seattle looked very beatable, but could not hold off the Hawks in the end. Of course give credit to Seattle's resiliency as it was an amazing ending to the game.

I thought the Patriots would beat the Colts, but in no way did I envision total dominance on both sides of the ball. Except for that one Colts drive aided by a couple of penalties, it was as if the Colts weren't even on the field.

It's good to see a Super Bowl with what I feel are legitimately the two best teams in football this year. It should be a smash mouth game.

I got both picks right! I was really hoping Green Bay would have pulled it off, but they gave it away! And why in the the hell didn't they go for it early on in the game, at the 1 inch line on 4th and goal, and instead settle for 3?

Because you take the points. They couldn't run it in on 1st, 2nd or 3rd down. Why should anyone believe they could have run it in on 4th down?

Neither game went as I expected but didn't really have time to break it all down to see the comparative strengths and weaknesses of each team.

I kinda like Seattle's chances if they stick to the running game.

Didn't surprise me at all that the Colts were blown out 45-7. I never thought the Colts were that good and still have them behind a couple teams in the AFC. Put it simply, they were a fraudulent contender for the AFC crown. Maybe next year they will be an improved team, but to think they could honestly compete for a championship this year? Well, you saw how far they are off.
