    As Dandy Don Meredith used to sing on Monday Night Football ...
    "Turn out the lights, the party's over ... "

    What a bummer of a Super Bowl ... was hoping for a close exciting game.

    Yeah... I was pretty sure the Seahawks were going to win, but wanted to see more of a game than a humiliating blowout.

    Looking at the Broncos you could wonder why they are wearing the Superbowl 48 logo on their jerseys... its not like they are or were in the game. :) :) :)

    Peyton wished he played the Bears again. :evillaugh

    Figured Seattle would win/cover, solely due to the fact that the line moved from Sea -1' to Den -2' when I was in Vegas after the conference games, and the public rarely beats the boys in Vegas. That was a significant opening line move for a Super Bowl.

    Expect to read that sportsbooks across Nevada won some major money, with the chalk losing, though not as much as if the game would have stayed under the total.

    Wow... just wow... I just don't know how Denver could show up so flat? or was Seattle just so dominant from the onset that it completely took Denver out of their game.

    I think in the first half Denver just played poorly.

    In the second half on the kickoff return its right around the Denver 30 yard mark that you can see the Broncos suddenly deflate and that was the point that they gave up.

    Mvp should go to the Sawks dbs for executing just enough illegal contact without being flagged. And Potsie for coaching it to a T. No flag,"rub" away!

    The game was over 12 seconds in. The momentum swing was a tidal wave. Manning never got untracked, but remarkably, still managed to set a Super Bowl record for completions.

    The bigger question now is, will Peyton return?

    I don't like the direction the NFL is going. Games are now nothing but hordes of screaming, drunken ninnies who have no idea what is going on down on the field. The number of egomaniacs playing the game hip-hop style is wearing me down.

    I don't like the idea of paying $150 for a seat that I will never sit in during the game. They youth of today are rotten, miserable bastards.

    And mean spirited. :cry::thumbsdown:

    Agree that the opening safety seemed to kill the broncos game. This was really a disappointing Super Bowl. So much hype and so much promise.
