Super Bowl 50: Final Thoughts

Denver Broncos 24, Carolina Panthers 10.

Maybe it was just the group of people that was at my house, but most of us felt that Super Bowl 50 was one of the most boring Super Bowl games of all time. I think most people wanted the game to be over already – even the fans who wanted the Broncos to win.

I picked the Panthers to win Super Bowl 50.

Congrats to the Denver Broncos – and especially quarterback Peyton Manning for winning Super Bowl 50. I’m a Kansas City Chiefs fan who sees the Chiefs and Broncos play twice a year, so I am not a Denver fan. I do respect Peyton Manning, though. I don’t care for John Elway or Gary Kubiak.

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) was Broncos linebacker, Von Miller. The real MVP was the Broncos 68-year-old defensive coordinator Wade Phillips. He was actually the head coach of the Broncos for two years back in the 1990s. Phillips’ defense beat the New England Patriots and last night his defense shut-down Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Peyton Manning should retire now, walk out a winner, drink his Budweiser, and heal. There are not too many athletes that go out on top, so this is Manning’s “drop the mic and walk off the stage” moment. Just do it.
