Denver Broncos Win Not-So-Super Bowl 50 over Carolina 24-10


The Denver Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers tonight in Super Bowl 50 by a score of 24-10. The Broncos scored a TD late in the fourth quarter to seal the deal. In fact, it was the Broncos only offensive touch down of the game, set up by a fumble recover by their defense on the 4 yard line. The Broncos #1 defense shut down Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers as at times they looked clueless on offensive. Making matters worse, Carolina could not hang on to the ball and fumbled any chance they had of winning the game. However, I can honestly say I have never seen a worse offense on a Super Bowl winning team.

Unfortunately this game was marred from the outset by the referees.  But why should the Super Bowl be any different than the rest of the season where we saw witness to terrible calls that changed the outcomes of games. Super Bowl 50 was no different. Just before Super Bowl MVP’s Von Miller’s strip sack of Cam Newton that lead to a Denver TD, the refs and the refs doing the reviews blew a call big time that set the mood of the entire game as Denver was quickly up 10-0 in the first quarter. Watch the VIDEO of the catch HERE.  However, upon further review, the Carolina receiver caught the ball and it should have been a first down. Who knew one had to perfectly catch the ball without bobbling it. Note to refs and the foll in the replay booth . THE BALL NEVER HIT THE GROUND. Had this play been properly called, the Panthers would have had the ball at their 39 yard line and the momentum. Instead, the call is botched and on the very next play, Newton is strip sacked and a Denver TD. One might also want to question the defensive holding flags that were thrown against the Broncos and then picked up. Hmm. And then the defensive holding or was it mugging by the Broncos DB’s, and yet those were not called. However, when it was the Patriots playing the Broncos in the AFC Championship Game, some how the refs saw fit to call those penalties. Imagine that?


Note to replay refs, that would be the players hand under the ball, it never hit the ground

The Broncos set a record in their victory, its the first time ever a winning team had less than 200 yards of total offense. One might say that Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense was offensive as well. The Broncos only managed to muster 194 yards of total offense. Manning was 13-23, 104 net yards, 1 interception, 1 fumble and a QB rating of 56.6. In other words, the Denver Broncos won in spite of Manning. Sorry, Manning’s numbers look more like that of Baltimore Raven’s QB Trent Dilfer, who everyone refers to as a game manager. You have to go all the way back to Super Bowl IX to find when a team had fewer passing yards than the Broncos did today in a victory. However, the Pittsburgh Steelers ran wild that day and it was more of a running league back then as well. The Steelers ended with 333 total yards and 17 first downs as opposed to the 194 total yards and 11 first downs by Denver.

Congrats to the Denver Broncos, but this one will go down as one of the least entertaining and watchable. I am glad I am not the only one who thought this was hideous.

UPDATE I: Panthers CB Josh Norman: ‘It’s hard to play two teams’

I could not agree more. In the end the NFL got their cutesy, fairy tale story of Peyton riding into the sunset as he did nothing to help win the game and was literally just along for the ride. Its sad that the NFL has become a league where games are determined by bad refereeing. So much for a faily called game and it being determined on the field.

Panthers cornerback Josh Norman, like most of the Carolina defense, didn’t have a poor Super Bowl. He had two passes defensed and helped lead a secondary that gave up only 104 yards passing overall.

And he was cryptic when trying to find the cause of the team’s 24-10 defeat.

“It’s hard to play two teams,” Norman said multiple times after the game.

Norman wouldn’t elaborate on what he meant. He likely means the officials, not the Panthers’ offense. Carolina had 12 penalties in the game, many of them before the snap.

NOBAMA: Stephen A. Smith Implies New England Patriots QB Tom Bardy is a Racist for Not Going to the Obama White House after Winning Super Bowl … Fails To Mention Brandon Browner or Vince Wilfork Were No Shows

You know what Stephen A. Smith, maybe you are the one who needs to STFU …I guess we know what the “A” stands for, don’t we?

A note to Stephen A. Smith and America, you know everything isn’t about Barack Hussein Obama. Everyone’s world does not revolve around this failure of a president. I cannot wait until Obama is out of office so that this national crisis of playing the race card at the highest level is over. Stephen A. Smith, you have become a racist clown … I wonder who will be considered the loser in this story when ESPN fires you?

Honestly, who is completely tired of Stephen A. Smith’s shtick? The one trick pony, or is it phony, ESPN talking head who is paid to make outrageous comments and push the envelop to make everything that happens in sports the greatest tragedy since the Kennedy assassination, implied that New England Patriot QB Tom Brady a racist for not attending the White House celebration for the PAT’s winning the Super Bowl because Obama was black. It is shameful that ESPN does not suspend Smith for making such racially charged comments.

You have a problem with it. You know, no one gives a flying rats ass what you think. Tom Brady does not have to explain anything he does in his life to you. According to the Boston Herald, Tom Brady skipped out on the day’s events due to a scheduling conflict with a “family obligation.” But that was not a good enough explanation for Smith, Brady had to be a racist because he attended the first 3 invitations to the WH when GWB was president. Now that Barack Obama is there, he is a no show. For that, a classless no talent like Stephen A. Smith implies that Brady is a racist. REALLY?  BTW, The Daily Caller reports that the family commitment was that he was attending his parents 50th wedding anniversary. There are some reports thought that his parents were married in 1969. Guess what Stephen A, that is more important than going to the White House after you’ve been there already.

For the record, Tom was attending a party for his parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Pretty sure they weren’t going to change the date just to fit Barry’s schedule, Stephen.

ALSO, why aren’t Brandon Browner or Vince Wilfork — both black males were important members of last year’s Super Bowl championship squad — racist for not going to the Thursday’s events?

Stephen A. Smith, maybe your the racist.

So let’s understand what has Stephen A. Smith’s panties in a wad … Because Tom Brady had a previous family commitment and was not star struck by feeling the need to go to the White House and be insulted by Obama’s 11 out of 12 jokes falling flat comment, Smith insinuates that he is a racist. Stephen A. Smith says he has a problem with that, a big problem. Smith wants to know WHERE WAS TOM BRADY?

Looks like Taylor Swift was singing about Stephen A. Smith in ‘Shake It Off’  … “And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate”.

Smith ranted that this is what bothered him, “Where the hell was Tom Brady? Inquiring minds would like to know. Where the hell was Tom Brady? I really would like to know! When you won the Super Bowl in 2001 and George W. Bush was the president, you were there. When you won back to back Super Bowl titles in 2003 and 2004 with George W. Bush still president you were there. How come he wasn’t there yesterday, when President Barack Obama was there?”

A note to the jackass Stephen A. Smith, here are some facts for this race-baiter to choke on:

  1. Tom Brady and Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen were married on February 26, 2009 in Santa Monica, CA. Together, they have two children: son Benjamin Rein Brady (born December 2009) and daughter Vivian Lake Brady (born December 2012). Tom Brady also had a child with former girlfriend  Bridget Moynahan in 2007. Thus, in 2001, 2002 and 2003 Tom Brady had no commitments to an immediate family of a wife or children during those Super Bowl victories.
  2. A man puts his family ahead of his job and is criticized for it, seriously?
  3. The world does not stop for Barack Hussein Obama.
  4.  From tyvianc, much love brother: Stephen A. you need to chill man, and the man has a right to be with his family. You have taken everything out of context here and it’s just downright sad that just because you indirectly imply racism with mentioning the years that he won a title with George W Bush. Are you implying that because the president is black that’s why you have a problem with it? I used to like you Stephen A, but now you have just sunk to an all time low of being an asshole!!!!!
  5. Maybe Tom Brady hates his guts and does not respect him or his policies. Maybe Tom did not want to be apart of the Obama clown show and have a photo-op with him He’s allowed to you know, its not against the law, at least not yet.

Nationwide 2015 Super Bowl Commercial, Make Safe Happen – Maybe One of the Darkest, Inappropriate Super Bowl Commercials Ever (VIDEO)

MAYBE ALL PR REALLY ISN’T GOOD PR … Nationwide Insurance delivered a gut-punch to all those watching Super Bowl commercials.

Although this is an important message and something all parents need to be mindful of when it comes to their children, the Super Bowl was not the place to show this commercial. The powers that be at Nationwide decided on the the following to be their 2015 Super Bowl Commercial, ‘Make Safe Happen’ . YIKES! It maybe one of the darkest, inappropriate Super Bowl commercials ever. There is nothing like “DEATH” to break the mood of people trying to enjoy their Super Bowl Sunday. If those who thought GoDaddy’s spoof dog commercial was inappropriate, which was pulled, I could only imagine the uproar over this one.

A Nationwide commercial for the 2015 Super Bowl was called “dark and depressing” and drew a ton of negative online reaction Sunday night.

The spot started off in a whimsical way, with a boy riding his three-wheeler: ”I’ll never learn to ride a bike,” he said.

Daily Mail:

Nationwide Insurance has sparked outrage after showing a ‘dark’ and ‘depressing’ commercial about a young boy who died in a preventable accident during the Super Bowl XLIX.

In the advert, the cherub-faced child talks about all the milestones he will miss out on after dying in an accident, including learning to ride a bike, receiving ‘cooties’ from a girl and getting married.

In a voice brimming with hope and potential, he says: ‘I’ll never learn to ride a bike or get cooties. I’ll never learn to fly or travel the world with my best friend. And I won’t ever get married.’

Speaking directly to the camera, he finishes: ‘I couldn’t grow up. Because I died from an accident.’

UPDATE I: Nationwide defends Super Bowl ad about child deaths.

In a press statement, the Columbus, Ohio-based company defended its ad, stating its intent was to inform the public about the prevalence of preventable accidents.

“The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us — the safety and well-being of our children,” the statement said.

“We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions. In fact, thousands of people visited, a new website to help educate parents and caregivers with information and resources in an effort to make their homes safer and avoid a potential injury or death. Nationwide has been working with experts for more than 60 years to make homes safer.

“While some did not care for the ad, we hope it served to begin a dialogue to make safe happen for children everywhere.”

Nationwide Responds to Super Bowl Reaction

February 01, 2015

Columbus, Ohio – Preventable injuries around the home are the leading cause of childhood deaths in America. Most people don’t know that. Nationwide ran an ad during the Super Bowl that started a fierce conversation. The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us—the safety and well being of our children. We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions. In fact, thousands of people visited, a new website to help educate parents and caregivers with information and resources in an effort to make their homes safer and avoid a potential injury or death. Nationwide has been working with experts for more than 60 years to make homes safer. While some did not care for the ad, we hope it served to begin a dialogue to make safe happen for children everywhere.
