    This is another thing the Media/Caste System does: If Kapernick was a white QB and choked so awfully as this, we would never hear the end of it how he is such a choker. Since Kapernick is non-white, his chokefest will not be mentioned at all. We will instead only hear about all the upside he has in the offseason.

    Well, at least another of the quotabacks is gone from the playoffs. I am extremely dissapointed that the Pats lost, but as Don said that game was basically a win/win for us. If Denver wins the SB it will be because of Manning without a doubt.

    God I hope the Broncos beat Seattle in two weeks. Denver looks really good now, and Manning and Denver's offense are playing so well right now it is pretty easy to envision them beating Seattle. Denver's front 7 shut down New England's rushing game very effectively, so that is encouraging. It will be interesting to see what the line for the game is...

    New England has a better quarterback and receiving corp than Seattle. If Brady doesn't miss a few of those passes in the first half the game turns out completely different. Edelman and Collie were open on those misses but were held in check otherwise. Shocking that Amendola was blanked.

    Seattle's receivers are much less talented. Lynch is a more talented back than Blount or Ridley but Denver has played the run consistently well throughout the season.

    I think it'll be Denver -1 or -2.

    The NFL had the bright idea of holding a Super Bowl in the New York area at night on February 2. At best, the temperature will likely be in the twenties. The field is artificial turf.

    If the conditions are indeed as expected, I'm afraid Seattle has the team built for that environment. If this had been an indoor or warm-weather game, I easily give the nod to Manning, who would carve up the Seattle defense. It has nothing to do with Manning's so-called struggles in cold weather, but the fact that inclement weather conditions do not favor high-powered passing offenses.

    But if anyone can prepare well, it will be Manning, so go Broncos. Strictly from a QB match-up perspective, this one isn't even close, but it's also a caste game we cannot afford to lose.

    Contrary to what people think Manning is pretty good in cold weather. Denver needs to focus on stopping Lynch and make Wilson beat them in the air. Wilson can't hang with Manning in a shootout.

    The average high temperature for New York City in February is 40 degrees. Being on the coast its climate is a bit milder in the cold weather months than more inland cities in the Northeast. If there's precipitation for the Super Bowl it's as likely to be rain as snow. Heavy rain would hurt the Broncos passing offense but moderate or light rain not that much.

    Saw the chimp Sherman rage incoherently, and the announcer look at him in disgust. Wow. this fool, I suppose went to a 4 year university and nothing civilized rubbed off his affeletic self. Fudge.

    Sherman is all talk. I remember reading that he grew up in a middle class suburb. His mom has one of those cushy government middle class "jobs".

    I am surprised no one brought up the officiating unless I missed the comment(s). Not that I am fan of either the 'hawks or 9ers but I thought Seattle was handed a few big breaks. Maybe the NFL needs to extend coach's challenges to the official rulings. Not sure if I will watch the SB but can't see how this will get blockbuster ratings with two medium sized markets.

    I'm probably in the minority here but I absolutely love Richard Sherman's antics. His thuggish actions are usually always directed at other black players. It's a breath of fresh air compared to the love-fest that most affletes on opposing teams share with one another these days. He's usually pretty funny too. And on the plus side I imagine most DWF's are disgusted by him which I bet helps subconsciously awake them racially

    Left her tongue tied. Reminded me of Tom Brookshier asking Duane Thomas "Are you really that fast?" after SB6 and Thomas saying, "Evidently."

    Put me into the minority as well, I don't really get upset about unruly black celebrations for even the simplest things in a game. One I don't ever expect blacks to act white, second my adrenal response goes pretty fast from calm to hand grenade so I have little room to talk. But Sherman was a moron with "I'm the greatest CB", but all I care about it from my part is that I be free to rip such stupidity if I see fit. Did notice the black Seahawk players shaking hands like white men, I guess anything to be different.

    I live 2 miles from Giants Stadium. So far we have had 4 snow storms this winter, a bit more than usual. If it snows I expect that to work in the Broncos favor as they see that type of weather in Colorado.

    If the Seahawks win I am done with football. I will not watch it next season. Can you imagine how much hype Midget will get being the second black qb to win a Superbowl? The black buffoons on ESPN and NFL Network will be praising him to no end along with the drunk white idiots. I will just stick to watching boxing at that point.

    Championship Sunday

    AFC - Patriots @ Broncos:

    Broncos led by Manning handle the Patriots with precision, sticking to the game plan, very solid defensive effort, overall much better performance. Physically and mentally in the game on every play and clearly the best team in the AFC all year.

    Must give credit to the Denver defense in this game as they imposed their will at the line of scrimmage in key spots. This effort and intensity will be key for Denver's scrimmage battle in the SB with Seattle.
    Yet overall, Denver is Manning and as leader of this team, he obviously commands tremendous respect from every member of the Broncos organization...from towel boy up to Pat Bowlen and GM Elway.
    Every player on Denver, no matter how young or old, or what position, realizes that they are in the presence of not only perhaps the best QB ever to play, but also a player and man of high regard, dignity, ability and as the cliche is often overused by media outlets, true 'greatness'.
    Candidly, everyone knows that players such as P. Manning are very, very rare.

    I truly believe that the defense, ST, etc. all units on that team look to Manning as their leader, both on the field, off the field and in the team facilities (where players spend the far majority of their time).
    Intense about winning and manically prepared, Manning does not allow loafers and shirkers, and you can tell that players and staff have rarely been on a team with a player that commands such regard as a real deal field general. He's like a Charlemagne in a way.

    Patriots: well, from what I saw not a devoted or clean performance from them in this game.
    Timing off on the passing game for most of the 1st half, did not seek to establish a running game, little to no pass rush on Manning. And with Manning and his talented receivers, this spelled a slow and steady march to sound defeat.

    Brady did NOT play a great game. Yes, as other posters noted, he missed on a few 1st half passes where his WRs were open.
    Surprised Pats did not try and run more as well...I get that Denver's defense was playing very good, yet if one team keeps winning at the line, then they tend to win the game 80% of the time.
    Patriots seemed to wake up way too late...yes, adjustments and all that. But the room for error at this level is just way too small and behind on the road vs a great team??
    Sorry, not gonna get it done all the time.

    Amendola with no receptions. Not good.
    At least Austin Collie had a few...I really support this player and hope he can salvage his career after almost (literally) getting knocked out of the league by a couple of brutally nasty head hunting hits by black DBs over the middle.
    Edelman with a nice game. What hurts NE is losing match up advantages such as Gronk as a TE, Wilfork clogging the middle on defense, Talib got hurt.
    So yes, injuries did catch up with this team.

    Yet what truly did NE in in this game was the lack of any defensive pass rush.
    NE will need to shore up the defense, get players who can disrupt the passing game, hope Gronkowski can get back to full health, and they should be okay and will continue to be a threat to win the SB next season.

    NFC: 49ers at Seahwaks:

    This game will be remembered and stand out in people's minds for a few reasons....from on the field play, mental mistakes, some horrid throws, and soon to be the #1 'afflete you love to hate' new, improved heel persona interview antics Dick Sherman.

    Some astute observations earlier. The 4th Q mental meltdown from Keapernick was about as team killing as one will ever see. After the 1st 2 turnover, SF's mental and emotional energy was collapsed and you could see. the 3rd one on the potentially game winning TD? Sherman will get credit, yet terrible throw and decision to pass there.

    SF was in a decent position to win this game, yet the late turnovers cost them the game. What one will see here is that no matter the hype, and yes, he can and did make some nice runs, Kaepernick is not at all an elite QB and relatively one-dimensional.
    He will and deserves to get heat for late turnovers on some mind numbing decisions.
    Good god dude, what the hell are you thinking? Oh yes, you weren't.

    SF's defense played a very valiant game and both teams were hitting. This was not a finesse game at all.
    The Bowman Int and Broken leg/knee shattering was something I think many fans will remember. I will.
    He's a solid player and that looked pretty rough.

    Karma did strike though with the fumble. That was weirdly fair.
    Refs were home cooking for the most part and I think the NFL is totally cool with Seattle in the SB.

    Seahawks on offense had a few more pale faces playing then what I expected...pleasantly surprised. Where have these white players been all season?

    The defense is great, yet annoying as hell and Sherman made himself look like a complete thug a$$....the media seems to love giving him face time and follow him around for some reason.
    Maybe they like that he is a loose cannon and an overall negro malcontent as it makes people have strong opinions and as you know, this means they care and actually tune in more.

    I get it. Hollywood strategy 101.

    Seattle and SF are pretty evenly matched teams with strong lines on both sides of the ball.
    This game came down to 4th Q key plays and yes, SF choked at the most inopportune times as their QB is mentally and emotionally not able to handle such a pressure cooker environment.
    Kaepernick cracked.

    end of story.

    Manning is already analyzing Seattle's defense and devising the game plan to beat them.

    No 12th man in NJ. So the blue and teal brigade hopefully will have to be happy with their NFC champion shirts.
    I think Seattle will have a long cross country flight home on Feb. 3rd. There will be plenty of time to think and hopefully grow up and be humbled.

    The SB match up can be billed as 'Denver's Class vs Seattle's A$$'

    As we all knew prior to these games, everyone on this site will be rooting strongly for the AFC team to win the Super Bowl. The game will draw a clear, distinct line between good and evil, graciousness and classlessness, sportsmanship and thuggery. I echo the comments of whiteathlete33- if Seattle wins, I am through with even trying to watch this nonsense.

    Tom Brady played one of the worst games I have ever seen a QB of his caliber play. He wildly overthrew a wide open receiver on several occasions, two of which would have been easy TDs. As was predicted, his white receiving corps is taking all the blame. Amendola clearly has lost Brady's trust- I saw him wide open in the middle of the field a few times, and Brady just ignored him, forcing the ball to someone else. He dropped the only pass I saw thrown to him.

    The "analysis" of these games was even worse, and more of a twisted distortion of reality, than it usually is. Skippy Bayless, who despises all white players except Brady, Tebow and Manziel, ranted and raved about Welker's "cheap shot" against the humble and lovable Aquib Talib, who in a just world would have been locked away in prison a long time ago. The "best" coach in the NFL, Belichick, also blasted Welker for a "cheap shot" against his wonderful DB, who is a role model for youths everywhere. And then Skippy blasted the Patriots' WRs again, but he oddly left out Dobson, Tompkins or the unpronouncable Poli TE, instead hissing out the white names- "Danny Amendola? Julian Edelman? Austin Collie? Are you kidding me?"

    I also heard ESPN talking heads clearly being sympathetic with Sherman's typically infantile, rap lyric type "comments" after the game. THIS is what they want. THIS is not only our future, but increasingly our present, as we complete the transformation into a Third World Idiocracy. A sane country, ruled by rational, honest leaders, would never allow someone like Sherman to rise to any level of success. It would not permit the Ray Lewises and Keyshawn Johnsons and Deion Sanderses to be highly paid "commentators" when they can't even speak the language properly.

    Even the "best" of the commentators, Tim Hasselback, refused to criticize Crapernick for his putrid play. ANY white QB, even Johnny Unitas or Joe Montana, would be torn to shreds by these same jock sniffers, if they turned the ball over three times in the fourth quarter of a championship game. It really is an ironclad rule now, that these quotabacks cannot be criticized for any reason, ever, no matter what they do.

    If Peyton Manning beats the all black, constantly fouling and cheating Seahawks defense, it will be a monumental victory for goodness and clean play. Manning will clearly be the best player on the field, playing the most important position. If he can't win this game, it will be because of his own shortcomings in big games. All he has to do is play the way he's capable of playing in most every regular season game (and in yesterday's championship game), and the Broncos will win.

    If the Seahawks win, Wilson will be lauded as a "great" QB, even if he puts up his usual sub-200 yard passing game. And we will have to listen to more mindless, primitive "trash talk" from Sherman (whom we are supposed to believe was a legitimate student at Stanford) and his fellow intellectuals. I will probably still play fantasy football, and thus follow the stats, but if this odious team beats Manning, Welker and Decker, they will not get me to watch their festivities any longer. One thing is absolutely certain- Manning and his "play not to lose" conservative coach Fox have to keep their foot on the gas, because whoever officiates this game, they will unquestionably be the real "12th man" on the field for the Seahawks.

    Here's hoping that Manning steps it up, to truly cement his legacy as the greatest of all time. Preferably, it will be with Decker and especially Welker playing huge roles in a blow out victory.

    Very strange that Belichik went out of his way to criticize Welker's hit on Talib. Welker has been a victim of dozens of cheap shots throughout his career and although he is a physical player, has never been considered a dirty player. Belichik has no loyalty to players, and got Welker's best years, then refused to pay him, but overpaid Amendola. Yet, I haven't heard Welker say anything negative about Belichik or the Patriots. Classless move by Belichik, so concerned about his overrated corner getting knocked out of the game by a 180 lb receiver.

    Off topic, but I just read that Welker kicked a 58 yard field goal in high school. That's ridiculous.

    Right now the accuweather forecast says cloudy and cold in NYC area for Feb 2, high of about 30. Odds are Denver 2.5 point favorite.

    Who was the sixth white starter for Seattle? I never counted more than five.

    Nice rant! Here is the PED-imbibing cheater, infantile trash-talker, and “proud Stanford graduate,” Sherman...

    [video=youtube;SFYuwWCqmeU]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFYuwWCqmeU[/video]

    It was a highly disappointing result in the Pats-Broncos contest. For New England, it was nice to see Edelman close out a fantastic season, likely earning himself a new contract. Phil Simms, normally a reliable Caste Prostitute, said during the game: “Edelman isn’t just a slot receiver, he can play on the outside, too.” Austin Collie played well, converting several key 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] downs and running past DB’s on long passing routes. It would be great to see Edelman, Collie, and Amendola return to the offense next season along with Gronkowski and Vollmer. This franchise has been to three consecutive AFC Championship games and is always in contention. Given the circumstances, this season was a great success for New England. The Broncos, a team with a plethora of “superstars,” were more consistent the entire season by a wide margin. The Patriots will be back in 2014, hopefully more white-friendly than ever before and poised to shatter the Caste System...

    CAPTION: Collie Toasts Black DB's, An Omen for 2014?

    As for the game, it was never really close simply because Denver’s offense possessed the ball for a mind-numbing 35 minutes. Every single Bronco possession seemed to last an eternity, with yawn-inducing conversions to Julius or Demaryious Thomas to prolong unexciting drives resulting in field goals or short rushing TD’s by their slow, chubby duo (Moreno/Ball) of running backs.

    Decker had some nice catches early in the game, but was ignored later. Welker, as always, wallowed in obscurity in Manning’s offense, only playing around 65-70% of all snaps from my rough estimation. I realize that he was injured for the final 3 games, but he didn’t even have a single 100-yard game through 13 weeks this season. He went from being a true superstar in New England to the 4[SUP]th[/SUP] or even 5[SUP]th[/SUP] receiving option behind D. Thomas, Decker, J. Thomas, and even Moreno (who only had about 200 less receiving yards than Welker on the season). Despite his talents being wasted in Denver, he could be two weeks away from winning his first Superbowl title.

    Naturally, I’ll be rooting for Denver over the contemptible Seahawks, but in knowing what other playoff teams could have played in the Superbowl (Packers, Patriots, Eagles), the Broncos are a very difficult team to support. I’ve felt this team was “too black” since their opening game against the Ravens and not much has changed. My opinion might be amended if Welker, Decker, and Tamme dominate the game. One of their white WR’s (preferably Welker) winning the MVP award would help sooth the pain of actually “rooting” for a team with 18/22 black starters.

    I didn’t watch the NFC Championship game, as there wasn’t a single athlete on either squad (aside from TE Zach Miller and DE Justin Smith) with any value to our cause. I abhor both teams, both QB’s, both franchises, both fanbases, and both head coaches. As Don mentioned, Plantatin Pete’s offense does feature 5-6 whites on the field at time, so perhaps their two white TE’s (Miller and Wilson) will play well in the Superbowl...

    While Sherman's antics are classic TNB, I do sort of agree with this. It's certainly miles above the Malcolm X-style attitude of "blacks, never fight each other, just unite against da wicked white man."
