A few thoughts.....going in I thought Carolina would win, but wanted to see Manning close out his career with the win. Congrats to the Broncos on the win. Defense wins championships and in this age of high powered offenses it was nice to see that idea reinforced.
Overall, I thought the game was a let down thanks to all the miscues on both sides. I think the two weeks off really hurt the Panthers as they looked rusty and slow all night. So were Jim Nance and Phil Sims, but that is the way they always are as they racked up more unforced errors than the teams combined. How either one of them has a job amazes me.
I thought the commercials were pretty much blah across the board. I just spent a few minutes on Facebook looking at comments from folks who clearly misunderstood various commercials and are screaming blood murder about what they claim was implied. Not only are they clearly humor impaired, they think some commercials advocated, rape, stalking, bestiality, etc. It is rather scary knowing those way off base folks are out there.
The other good thing about the Denver win is that there will not be any riots to celebrate the victory. As we all know, stoners don't riot as they are very low energy. They just ask very strange questions and crave food. Non food items are pretty much safe.
