1. I like Goodell's potential PAT solution.
Every TD is worth seven unless you go for two which would give you eight points, unless you fail in which case you'd get six points. Seems way more fun than a boring PAT, which is only missed every 200 attempts or so.
2. Sherman, Crabtree, Kaepernick etc. need to shut it.
These players of varying talent levels and career accomplishments have something in common. They jabber too much. As Marshawn Lynch profoundly said recently, "I ain't never seen no talkin' winnin' nothin'". Seriously. Peyton's line about throwing TD ducks was funny though.
3. The NFL should draft in reverse order.
This wouldn't work in other sports but the NFL sees enough parity to justify rewarding the SB winner with the top pick. And it'd nix tanking.
4. Pitchers and catchers report in like 6 days.
I'm about ready for some baseball.
5. Kobe should sit out the rest of the year.
The Lakers are toast regardless and as of right now they're on pace for a good lottery pick in a top-heavy draft. Kobe's return wouldn't push them into the playoffs but it might cost them a top five or six pick. Plus Kobe's old; more rest should be a good thing.

1. The NFL should consider a SB in Green Bay. Weather be damned, the biggest game of the year should have a chance to be played on the most hallowed of fields the league has to offer. If the circus tent that is Jerry World can host one, why not honor what little bit of tradition and history the league has left to offer.
2. Baseball is trying to be The NFL. They're however going about it the wrong way by borrowing the worst part of it. Instant replay has no place in sports. You are taking away the human element of the game by making the Umps/Refs obsolete. If you're so worried about getting a call correct then why not try to get the plays correct and replace all the players with robots, all designed by the same person so there will be no variance.
3. ESPN is all that is wrong with sports. ESPN feeds our ADD by only showing highlights, what do most of these highlights only show? The things that are ruining each sport. The dunks and cross overs of the NBA. Big hits in the NFL. HR's in MLB. Gone are the days of fundamentals, dribbling, tackling and contact hitters.
4. Goodell should shut it. Shootouts ruined the penalty shot, getting rid of the XP will do the same to the 2pc.

1. Never mind anything myself or my opponent has said about PATs and such.
We're moving right along.
2. It's almost time to start caring a little bit about soccer again for like two or three weeks.
Pretty sure the World Cup is later this year, and even in a soccer-indifferent country like America and even on a soccer-hating website like FN that's a pretty big deal. I've already skimmed over like two soccer articles on SI.com so you know stuff is getting pretty serious.
3. So it turns out Nick Foles is apparently saving himself for marriage. Or something.
So depending on exactly what that means, Macho, you either have a decent chance of fulfilling all your Foles-themed desires, or you have absolutely none at all. Dependent on, of course, whether that info means Foles is homosexual or maybe super religious.
4. Seahawks win, 20-19.
Tomorrow's the proverbial big game so right now seems like just as bad a time as any to make myself look very much un-psychic-like by tossing in my two cents. I'll go even further out on the limb and say Sherman picks off Peyton at least one time.
5. This round took a bit of a strange detour for me.
Oh well. I tried.

1. Tom Gola - We recently lost the greatest college basketball player in the history of the game. On top of that he was one of the finest human beings to walk the face of the earth. The serious lack of honor in the national media and even on this site in the BBall threads is an outrage. Where's DJ RIP: Tom Gola.
2. Richard Sherman is a man I want on my team. He is super intelligent, a great guy, a feel good story and most importantly plays with the heart of a lion. I have a ton of passion for my teams and my city, he is exactly who I want on my team representing them.
3. Peyton Manning is the best of his generation. End of story. No matter what happens tonight he is better than Brady and is in the discussion for all time. You stole 3 SB's, you cant have it all.
4. If you're a fan of a team in the same division as either SEA or DEN and you're rooting for them, turn in your fan card. This isn't CFB. You don't root for rivals in bowl games.
5. Damn you ESPN. I really wanted to Root for the Broncos without question, but after their focus on Wilson, Lynch and Sherman before the game highlighting those men, I find it hard to root against any of them. Here's to a good game.

1. The Peyton/legacy debate will rage on and on.
Just when he threw for an NFL record in yards and TDs, just when we finally start feeling comfortable calling him the best this or that, the guy goes and drops a turd in the Super Bowl. Manning is what he always was - an all time great with shortcomings and flaws. Still probably the most feared QB I have seen though.
2. Too bad Denver lost but Seattle is pretty easy to root for as a consolation prize.
I wanted Peyton to earn another ring. But he didn't, as as you said, Macho, at least the Hawks had a couple players worth cheering for. Russell Wilson in particular is an inspiration and a very cheerable figure for his off the field work and humility. Deserving champs.
3. Seattle's team defense was the true SB MVP.
Nice pick-6 by the LB yesterday but he wasn't the clear cut most valuable player. They gave him the award for the sake of giving a player the award but Seattle's defense (and entire team, truthfully) won that game, not any one player. I guess the LB was as deserving as any single player, though.
4. Bad SB.
The blowout was boring.
5. No more NFL.
I already miss football and it's only been one day!

1. I realize I'm in the minority but I actually enjoyed the SB. Aside from winning some cash money which is always nice, we were witness to an epic performance by Seattles defense. Not only did they completely man handle the opposing offense, this was an offense that was supposedly unstoppable. 20 years from now this defense will still be in the talk for greatest defenses ever assembled along side the likes of the '85 Bears and '00 Ravens.
2. I wish professionals were not allowed to compete in the winter Olympics. Not for fairness or keeping the games truly amateuristic, but because its shutting down the NHL. Even though my team is highly inconsistent at best, bad hockey > good NBA.
3. Shanahan says the Skins have not been dominated like that during his tenure. A tenure that lasted less time than that post on this site. Fix the site.
4. Other than Hockey, I will be watching the Olympics for one thing. And one thing alone. Not curling, but Lolo Jones in that tight little bobsledding outfit.
5. GO USA. Go every country in the winter games. Except HCF's home land of France.
