Possibly but this actually reminds me of that SB48 match up... with the roles reversed this time. #1 offense, not really been in any tight games all season, lighting it up in the passing game with a complimentary running game and coming in full of confidence bordering on cocky with the majority of the media rooting for them VS the #1 defense (that matches up pretty well reading this article http://mmqb.si.com/mmqb/2016/01/25/nfl- ... e-mismatch), game managing QB, low scoring offense.

I think we match up better vs Carolina than we did vs NE as the intermediate crossing routes are our Achilles heel and have been all season long. As long as we can keep the 4-man pressure, restrict Cam to minimal yards with his feet and then contain Olsson (sp?) then I think we've got a fighting chance. If it's close at half time I like our chances - Panthers won most of their games by having huge leads early on and then playing not to lose. Our offensive line needs to step it up though! Can't win with most of our runs going from -2 to +2 yards...

Should be an entertaining Superbowl nonetheless <ok>

Oh and Brady impressed me on Sunday with the amount of times he got hit yet kept coming back for more.

I'd like to see Panthers win too. I've always liked watching a running quarterback, and their games are always entertaining.

I'm still a bit bitter about the Broncos dude eye gauging a Colts players during regular season, so screw them.

I know you can only play who's in front of you but that 14-0 run was definitely against mainly weak opposition and I wasn't expecting the Panthers to go far in the play offs. It's a bit similar to Leicester in the PL with the 'when do you start taking them seriously' thing, they put 30 points up on a still very credible Seattle D in the first half and 49 points against the second seeded 12-4 cardinals. They are very much the real deal this year and, whilst Seattle almost came back I think they've shown they're capable of putting up points against anyone. I agree that the score at HT will probably signal where the game is going as they definitely appear to be a first half team (if that's a thing).

Whilst I don't want your lot to win I do actually want a decent game <laugh> SB48 was SO boring.

I asked at work if I could work from home on the Monday but was told I'd have to take it as annual leave so I asked the missus if she'd mind me taking a days annual leave so I could watch the Super Bowl.

I had to explain what the Super Bowl was.
I then had to tell her that American Football was a sport.
I then had to tell her that even though I didn't actually support any of ther teams playing, it doesn't matter for the Super Bowl.
I then had to tell her that it was played late at night because it was played in the States and they were many hours behind us.
I then had to tell her why watching a recording of it just wouldn't be the same.
I then had to tell her that I'd likely never get to watch the full 6 hours of coverage because I never have 6 hours to myself in a month.
I then had to tell her I was sorry for being a selfish prick and thinking of using a day of holiday for myself and blaming my family for personal unhappiness because they like to spend time with me.

I ain't watching the Super Bowl.

Which one? I watched a bunch of the rugby world cup matches at the one in Farringdon. Great atmosphere there and barely ever see any trouble even when they're showing multiple football matches.

Yeah that one. Went there for SB two years ago and it was great.

Long faced knob. He's well past it to be honest, should have hung up his boots at the end of last year.
