Friday Poll: Super Bowl XLVIII – Who You Got?

super bowl xlviii

For football and non-football fans, this is kind of a big weekend. On Sunday, during Super Bowl XLVIII, most of us will gather around a TV with friends and family, fill ourselves with Thanksgiving-size portions of junk food, and polish off an adult beverage or two as we watch the two best teams in football get after each other. We’ll each take sides, pray for the game to be competitive, hope for Janet Jackson to show up at half-time, and ultimately end up asking each other which commercial we thought was funniest no matter how the game ends. It’s a glorious occasion.

But in the end, we really do have to pick a team to pull for. If you don’t, well, that’s un-American or something. As we do every year, we’ll simply ask – who you got? Are you taking the Seahawks and the L.O.B., or is it Peyton’s time for another ring?

    • Jeff

      So… Intelligent people are able to accurately predict who will win sporting events that involve teams of people with tons of variables? Okay, sounds good.

    Can I get a “GO HAWKS?!”

    • Philip J. Fry

      Why yes you may. GO HAWKS!

  • Ken Mankowski

    Let’s go Seahawks!

  • StankyChikin

    The poll should be “Who will get jobbed by the refs?”

  • BrianLipp

    I vote for…playing video games and continuing to ignore sports.

  • emoney

    34-24 Seahawks

  • flosserelli

    I am not really a fan of either team, but I hope Denver blows Seattle out just because I can’t stand Richard Sherman. Biggest loudmouth douchebag in the NFL.

    • Joseph A.

      Yeah, cause everyone likes trying to shake your opponents hand, saying good game, and being pushed in the face. What a jerk that Sherman devil is for getting ticked off.

      • flosserelli

        Sherman is a douchebag because he mouthed off like a high school thug from the ghetto during a post game interview. I have higher expectations for “professional” athletes. Regardless of what Crabtree said after the game, Sherman should have taken the high road and let it go, like a mature adult. Sherman’s outburst speaks volumes about his character, and I am not the least impressed. Go back to the ‘hood if that is the way you want to behave on live tv.

        • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

          You clearly don’t know anything about Richard Sherman. In all of his legitimate interviews, he is a sophisticated, Stanford graduate who conducts himself very professionally. What he did after the NFC Championship was just him letting loose, and Sherman noted that Crabtree said some things to him prior to the game (hence why he was hounding Crabtree all game). He even came out and said that he didn’t mean to take away from his team’s awesome defense. Seriously, pay attention.

  • StankyChikin

    Hrmm… V12 (Manning) in a Yugo (Denver) vs Formula 1 Race Car (Seattle) Think I will take the F1 in the Grand Prix.

    Seattle has beaten the top defenses in the league on a consistent basis.. Denver not so much… Not a hard choice here..

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    in reality i think the broncos and that manning-welker combo will dominate. I like Russel W. but he’s too young. I’m sure the pressure will force his hand.

  • Green

    BRONCOS!!!

    Should have been against the 49ers.

    It will be a good game. I’m a mod on a Broncos forum, so Broncos have to win . I don’t want to deal with the mess. :)

  • Rob Schoenfeld

    Screw Payton and the donkey he road in on..

    • La2da

      It wasn’t funny the first time so you went ahead and made it less funny.

      • Rob Schoenfeld

        Let me guess you have the dream every night that involves Payton flying naked thru your window. If you want him to touch your special place don’t let me stop you. Donkey fanboi’s are even worse the tech fanboi’s..

        • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

          LOL Patriots fans..

  • Rob Schoenfeld

    Screw Payton and the Donkeys.

  • Ben Modica

    I’m not really pulling for either team, I just hope it’s a really good game. Overtime would be great. There’s still never been a Super Bowl that went into overtime.

    • NIGHTSCOUT

      All I care about is the food :D

  • Tojen1981

    Go broncos! Sherman is great, no doubt, but young and Manning will test him early. The rest of the Seattle secondary is pretty average as evidenced when they played Indy this year.

    Same could be said for the Broncos secondary as well though. Bailey is past his prime, but better show up to play.

    • dan0matic

      You think the Seahawks secondary is average? You sir are way off. How many teams have 5 interceptions in one game?

      • Tojen1981

        Take away Sherman and they are average in the secondary. I didn’t say their defense was average.

        • dan0matic

          You clearly are not aware of the other players on the Seahawks. They have the best and deepest secondary in the NFL.

        • dan0matic

          Care to update your opinion?

          • Tojen1981

            The Seahawks came ready to play, props to them, they deserved the win. The question is, why are you so worried about my opinion? Most had the Broncos winning the game and they didn’t. Good for you, you picked the winner. Pin a star on your chest and say it was from me.

  • ki11ak3nn

    I’m going Seahawks. The 12th Man should be strong at the stadium!!

  • paul_cus

    Upset the Bears can’t even make the playoffs.

  • Ryan Laursen

    Seahawks beat the Broncos pre-season. It will be a close game because the Broncos will be out for revenge. :) #GoHawks!

    • ratnok

      Pre-season is meaningless.

      • Ryan Laursen

        Seems to have played out the same way.

  • Intellectua1

    SEAHAWKS BABY!!!! Let’s go Seattle!!! I believe we will shut Manning down..

    • Justin Larmay

      Away from home? Keep dreaming.

      • WAldenIV

        Got to give him credit. Manning gagged again.

      • Intellectua1

        Hold on, what you say?? Keep dreaming?? Like I said WE WILL SHUT MANNING DOWN and we did.. SEAHAWKS BABY!!!

        • Justin Larmay

          Yeah. They did, can’t deny that. It was pretty one sided. Pretty obvious that it wasn’t just the defense that beat them. Denver had zero offense. It wasn’t because of Seattle defense it was because Denver didn’t show up.

    Really should be a “couldn’t care less” option…

    • jack584

      It’s called don’t vote

      • mcdonsco

        Ahh, so you like the assumption that everyone likes football…got it.

        • Shawn Gill

          Well if you didn’t like football…why would you wanna vote in a football poll. Not trying to be a dick just curious.

          • mcdonsco

            Last I checked this was an android blog

          • Shawn Gill

            It’s more of a community but OK.

        • jack584

          Actually I don’t care too much about football, but I heard the saehawks have never won one, so I’d like so see them loose to keep it that way. Therefore I voted for the Broncos.

    • tu3218

      Why the hell would you even click on this article if you could’t care less about the poll and the Super Bowl? Makes no sense.

      • mcdonsco

        Well for one, it bothers you that I did, so, that’s a start.

        • tu3218

          Not at all. I just don’t get why people like you come into threads that you have no interest in, and post some moronic comment like you did. If you couldn’t care less, why are you even here in this thread? Move onto another post that you could care about.

          • calculatorwatch

            Actually I’m one of those people who goes on apple sites all the time and posts about how iPhones suck and I couldn’t care less about their new features, so I totally get where he’s coming from.

    GO HAWKS!!!

  • Arian

    I’m a huge Patriots fan but I want Manning to have a stellar legacy solidified by another ring. And I hate myself for it every day.

    • WAldenIV

      Real Pats fans were pulling for Seattle. Compromise is for the weak.

  • Dan

    Not watching. Worst superbowl in years. I’ll be nerding out on my N5.

    • Liderc

      How is it a bad superbowl? Two of the best teams playing each other, doesn’t happen often.

      #1 Offense vs #1 Defense, I’d say that’s the best one can hope for in the Super Bowl.

  • John Legere

    They both win. Why? They legalized marijuana.

    • ki11ak3nn

      I live in Seattle, and I honestly don’t even know where to get it. So it doesn’t feel that legal to me.

      • michael arazan

        Seattle has apps and websites dedicated to marijuana retailers.

    • michael arazan

      Technically the NFL has barred all drug use, including Marijuana and it doesn’t matter if they live in a state that has it legalized.. Players caught using marijuana, which many ex players say 50% of the league uses, will be fined and or suspended or could lose their contracts. When the NFL does drug testing though, all they are looking for are hormone, and steroids, and any other type of performance enhancing drug. They seem to do not look for recreational type drugs on purpose.

  • droidrazredge

    This is how I feel the game will go down. The Seahawks will be dominating throughout the first half with their defense. They won’t be able to establish that much on offense, so basically it will be a defensive first half for them with a halftime score of 17-6. It will be the tale of two halves becomes Peyton will know and understand how the defense plays and be able to pick them apart the 2nd half and Denver’s defense will come up with some key stops. The final score will be 34-26. with the Broncos winning

    • John Legere

      You forgot to add the part where Sherman screams at the camera and scares Erin Andrews ;)

      • Ej McCarty

        Erin Andrews halftime show!! She’s doing a reenactment of Janet Jacksons. A man can dream.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I dunnnnooo mannnn…. #1 Offense vs #1 Defense. Strange thing is Peyton Manning is the only QB I can see shredding this defense. It’ll be a great came either way.

  • buymore.behappy.consume

    need 3rd option… superbowl advertising -its always the REAL winner

    • gregmr

      I think the fans will be the real winners of this matchup

    • Kavin Nguyen

      The real winners are the casinos in Vegas. BTW Go Broncos.

  • Ryan

    I think the Broncos might win. Manning has Experience and that is where kapernick blew it last year. The Seahawks are good but IDK. Either way it will be a good game.

  • Metal_Link

    Where’s the option for Team Solo Mid in the NA League of Legends Championship Series? I don’t even hand-egg.

  • poop2

    I’m 100% sure that the Seahawks will win. I am not a football fan, never have been, never will be, but I am a time traveler. In a matter of days, you will see. Come back and comment then. Also feel free to downvote and such, but what’s true is true :)

      • poop2

        What’d I say? I think something went wrong along the way, however. The loss wasn’t supposed to be that bad. Manning was always going to do poorly (not as much, but it was there, definitely was). I think the score was supposed to be 35-21 Seahawks. 43-8 is brutal, though.

        the question should be.. what does football have to do with android.

          It doesn’t have to have anything to do with Football. Sports is neutral ground for any site.

        Yes!

      • WAldenIV

        You nailed it.

    • iNfAMOUS70702

      Seattle hasn’t lost a game by more that 7 points… And it won’t start now… The hawks take it against the broncos and the easiest schedule in the league :P
