The NFL is going to do whatever it can to maximize TV ratings even if that means forcing Seattle to play at 1pm EST on a Sunday (10AM PST). Its an absolute disgrace to Seattle and its fans, but that's what Greed will do....

I could care less about Seattle... in this thread at this point.

I would like to go to this game coming up Sunday and if I could I'd bring a broom and a rocking chair with me.

I don't think it's that bad. Seattle was never going to play on Saturday due to the travel. It's not like Seattle fans will have to get up at for an 8 am game, or stay up until after midnight like a lot of on the East Coast have to do sometimes during playoff and regular season games.

Besides, West Coast teams play at 1pm East Coast time on the regular, so this is not out of the ordinary.

I am already counting down to the game. Only 5 days!

I was watching KCNC - Denver last night and they were saying they think Denver and New England will win this this weekend then the winner of the New England/ Denver game will most likely win the Superbowl. Kind of a interesting analysis and one that I tend to agree with.

I was going to post about this as well. Only thing I can say is bundle up kids because its going to be cold! I am in the club level so if the game is not close I might spend part of the second half inside next to the fire place having a warm drink and watching the game on the big screen tv. However, if the game is close I will spend every moment outside being as loud as I can.

You get to be warm, by the fireplace sipping a beverage?? I'm so jealous!! I'll be in the upper level freezing my !@$&*@$*'s off!! , I was so no thrilled when I heard that forecast. I hope they pipe in some freezing air during practices! I don't know how much experience Peyton has playing in those temperatures. The last Bronco game was tough and it was in the upper 30's I think, so being half that, yikes! I think the coldest game I've been to was a Broncos/Chiefs game in KC, it was like 20-something. Eventually you just go numb!!
GO BRONCOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Much discussion has been made of Manning's record and performances away from a dome. People try to argue that he is not as good outside. But what they fail to consider is that EVERY QB in the league will develop a noticeable split in his performances over time when playing at home and away from home. In Manning's case, home happened to be inside a dome for a long time. I'm not a stats guy but I would be willing to bet that his home/away splits are not really any worse than any other. If you really wanted to get a better idea of his indoor/outdoor performances, you could gather all the data of all his road games throughout his career and compare those played indoors with those played outdoors.

TRANSLATION: I am not worried at all about the cold. Yes, it will be cold, but these players have all done this before. It is not like it will be any warmer on the Ravens sideline either, so the enemy has to play in the exact same conditions as do the Broncos.

I am ready for this game to start already!

Yeah, the cold shouldn't be a factor for Denver. They'll be fine. I do however believe that the altitude will be a huge advantaege, as the Ravens play at sea-level.

I remember watching Troy Polamalu need oxygen in the 1st quarter here in Denver earlier this year. The bad guys can't breath up here. If the Broncos can put together some long drives in the first half, and maybe even run some hurry up, that Ravens defense will be sucking wind late in the game.
