Man the energy is electric, in my apartment, because my favorite day of the year is here:  Super Bowl Sunday!  I have been in long favor of making this day a holiday and making the day after an off day for the country, but sadly enough until we get Peyton Manning or Tom Brady to become President it won’t happen.  Now everyone remember after today, please still keep getting together with your friends to do something.  Studies have shown (right here it’s real) that after football season fans go through a bit of depression and sluggishness.  Enough of the public service announcement on to the keys to unlock the Lombardi trophy.

*Disclaimer*  I dislike the Seahawks, because I’m a 49er fan (granted I do like Beast Mode, Russell “Last Name” Wilson, and The LOB, ok I kinda like the team just have to hate them because of fandom), and I’m not a Peyton Manning fan at all, to much credit for not enough playoff wins (before this season).  So I have no real bias unlike last week (I picked the 49ers!).  *Disclaimer*

* Denver Offense Key: Make the Seahawks Safeties have a bad game

The key for this offense will be how Peyton can minimize the effect of the LOB’s safeties.  I know for the last two weeks we have spoke about Richard Sherman and how he is the greatest, but he is only so great because his safeties (Thomas and Chancellor).  They are the best in the League.  Can Peyton confuse Thomas in single high safety formations (which they run a lot).  How much can he get the safeties to come and help in the run game to set up play action.  Chancellor has shut down 2 top 5 Tight Ends (Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis) in the playoffs, if Chancellor can go 3 for 3 by stopping Julius Thomas it will hurt Peyton and the offense.  So Peyton has to move these safeties and create match ups he can exploit to free WRs or at least make the reads difficult for Thomas and Chancellor.

* Seattle Offense Key:  Feed the Seahawks WRs Skittles and abuse Champ Bailey

It hurts to say this but you have to make Champ Bailey pay.  It’s no way in hell the Broncos should let Lynch go off, if they do the game is already over.  If they stop Lynch the Seahawks need an answer, enter Harvin, Tate, Baldwin, and Kearse.  These WRs need to go Torrey Smith on Champ Bailey (Here is what I’m talking about).  Last year we saw Bailey can’t keep up with speedy WRs anymore and his time off this year with injuries doesn’t help that.  You have to get the Broncos in man 2 man looks with little safety help and exploit it.  You may only see that look 7-10 times in the game and for the Seahawks to win they have to make them pay at least half of the time they see that look.

*Denver Defense Key:  Don’t let a bit player become a star

You know you have to stop “Beast Mode” Lynch, you know you have to keep “Short Stack” Wilson in the pocket and not let him turn into Russell “Houdini Tarkenton” Wilson.  What will cost you is if you let a role player beat you, ala Desmond Howard (Super Bowl XXXI), or Timmy Smith (Super Bowl XXII).  Keep the role player just that “role players”, no rising stars allowed.  The Seahawks Offense is not as dangerous as other offenses the Broncos have faced, so don’t take them lightly.  If I had to choose who would be the player to step for the Seahawks I would say it would be Baldwin with the extra attention Harvin will get.

*Seattle Defense Key:  Let Peyton be Peyton

I know I have lost a lot of you with this one.  Or I might have lost all creditability now, but hear me out.  We all know the thought of Peyton choking during big games, but when I say let Peyton be Peyton I mean pressure Peyton to make quick decisions, or errant throws.  Take advantage of Peyton’s hate of a clustered pockets by getting pressure up the middle.  Now it wont effect Peyton in the 1st-3rd quarters, but if the game is close down the stretch you will start seeing the effects of that pressure.  When it’s close in big games Peyton has a tendency to get ultra conservative which you can use to your advantage and jump a route ala Tracy Porter.

So there you have it.  Lets see what happens at 6:25pm.  I’m choosing the Denver Broncos to win, because I just think with John Elway’s mentoring and confidence it is Peyton Manning’s year and he wont show the old Peyton attributes.

The best thing that could happen is if Richard Sherman jumps a route and takes it to the house!  OMG!!! We might get another Promo about Peyton throwing “ducks”.  Or if Richard Sherman jumps a route and misses a badly thrown “duck” and the Broncos score the game winner.  Either way “Are We Ready For The End of Football…  This Year”.

Welcome to the Boom Boom Room, Everyone sit down relax, because we always bring it.  Last week we had a few hecklers in the crowd, so this week lets us do our job, we don’t go to yours and knock the mop outta your hand.  As always tip your bartenders and ENJOY THE SHOW!

Revis to the NFC? As a fan of gang green I’ve seen great players come and go (John Abraham, Aaron Glenn, Keyshawn Johnson, and James Farrior) and sorry ass jokers stay (Neil O’Donnell). It’s the way of the world with the Jets.  However, I’m with moving Revis; we are not in a position to pay a corner $15million, damn the Jeter (Yankee4life) talk Revis has been preaching. If we were Super Bowl or bust it’s a no brainer (pay the man), but a 9-7 record for us this year would be a success.

So where should Revis go?  Is it Atlanta, San Fran, or a Darkhorse team (Minnesota, Denver or Tampa Bay)?  I like Tampa Bay, they have salary cap space, there a team on the rise, and they have picks.  If Revis is Revis it will be good for both sides.  My gut tells me with a $1million bonus due next Saturday that Revis Island will be like the island on LOST, in NFL purgatory.  But I’m still gonna hold onto my jersey though cuz I paid for that shit.

Onto my thoughts:
1. If I had one word for Deandre Jordan over Brandon Knight it would be “DAMN!”  If I had more words it would be “Knight why did you not get the heck out the way!”
2. 18 straight for EL Heat is impressive as hell, may sound crazy but I ain’t crowning them yet, Dennis Green can, but not Big Play.
3.  Harvin to the Pacific Northwest (Seattle) is a great trade for both sides (I like the Vikes getting Tavon Austin from West Virginia University)
4.  Boldin with Crabtree and Vernon Davis equals championship yeah I said it (Big J did say it would take the Niners 3 years to get to the Lombordi).
5.  S.T.A.T (Amare Stoudemire) out for 6 weeks hurts but we are used to playing without him #Knicksfan4life
6.  I didn’t like those Michigan jerseys could barely see there name
7.  They say Chris Bosh’s video bombs are funny… I think it’s Deer Meat
8.  Kevin Durant and Paul Pierce got the worse hair in the NBA.  Them ninjas can’t even get waves.
9.  Is Tiger back?  I bet he had chicks all over the tournament
10. Did Flacco say he would laugh sometimes during Ray Lewis’s speeches?  You gonna announce that after the man retires?  #ThrowTheFlag (I bet he wont be laughing when Boldin isn’t there catching those terrible passes)

These are just my thoughts, right or wrong its just how I’m feeling at the time.  Now tell me what you think?  Follow me @bprunsportsmenm
