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.

The Most Valuable Player (MVP) was Broncos linebacker, Von Miller. The real MVP was the Broncos 68-year-old defensive coordinator Wade Phillips.

I won’t even get into the one-loss teams that had one bad game and may be playing some of their best football late in the season.

Oregon has three games left (one against a ranked team). Auburn has two games remaining (one against a ranked team) plus the SEC Championship game. TCU has two games left (none against a ranked team), and Boise State has four games left (one against a ranked team).

If there are more than two undefeated teams left, then we have a problem. My prediction is that we will have three undefeated teams going into the Bowl season and one will be left out of actually playing for a National Championship. Continue reading
