Richard Sherman to Peyton’s Defense Via Twitter

Hours after Richard Sherman’s Seahawks beat the Broncos to win the Super Bowl, the outspoken cornerback was asking Seattle fans to stop tearing into Peyton Manning.

 Before Super Bowl XLVIII's first snap went sailing past a bewildered Peyton Manning, Richard Sherman threatened to break the Internet.“There is no reason to bash him on here please Seattle let’s just enjoy this one!!!! He is still a Future HOF player,” Sherman tweeted.

Moments before, Sherman had nothing but kind words for Manning.

“Peyton is the Classiest person/player I have ever met! I could learn so much from him! Thank you for being a great Competitor and person,” he said in another tweet.

Manning largely avoided throwing at Sherman — widely considered among the league’s top corner backs — while throwing two picks and just a touchdown in the 43-8 loss at MetLife Stadium.

Manning and Sherman went at it a bit in the lead-up to Sunday’s big game.

Weeks ago, Sherman wrote in a Sports Illustrated column that sometimes Manning doesn’t get a good grip on the ball’s laces, causing him to throw “ducks.”

Manning responded with snark.

“They say he’s a smart player, and I don’t think that’s a real reach what he’s saying there,” Manning said on Thursday. “I do throw ducks. I’ve thrown a lot of yards and touchdown ducks, so I’m actually quite proud of it.”

Sherman later continued to laud the Broncos quarterback. “He’s a Hall of Fame player, he’s a living legend, he’s a record-holding quarterback, he’s a Super Bowl champion, he’s been a Super Bowl MVP,” he said.

Richard Sherman’s Annual Salary $465 Thousand and his total net worth is $1.5 million.

Social Media networks users continue to post “TWEETS’ about Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos Loss to Seattle.  Here’s what their saying.

Seahawks Cracked Peyton Manning’s Hand Signal code

The Seattle Seahawks are claiming that they were able to decode Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning’s hand signal codes on the field during the Super Bowl.

Seattle Claims the crackep Mannings Hand Signal CodeControversial corner back Richard Sherman said that he and his fellow defenders cracked the code that the Denver Broncos quarterback was using, meaning that they knew exactly what to expect for each play.

According to Sherman…” they figured out which plays went with which hand motions during the first quarter of the Super Bowl.”

Manning’s hand signal codes are known within the league for being one of his common traits on the field, just as the call ‘Omaha’ is associated with the 37-year-old.

Manning is so closely associated with ‘Omaha’ that 15 companies pledged to donate $1,500 to charity each time that he said it during the Super Bowl.

Instead of his typical double digit mentions, he only said it twice during Sunday night’s big game. (By comparison, Fox Sports reported that he said it 31 times during the AFC title game.)

In post game interviews, however, Manning and other Broncos offensive linemen explained that the noise at MetLife stadium stopped some of their verbal messages to one another.

Syracuse vs. Duke – Welcome to the ACC!

Last night’s epic ACC battle between Duke and Syracuse may go down as one of the greatest games in NCAA history. Hyped all week, this game gave fans of both schools an emotional rollercoaster ride from start to finish. We all know that games like this rarely live up to the hype. However, this one exceeded our expectations…and then some! An instant ESPN Classic. When you promote the ACC in the future, this is the game to feature. Legendary coaches, legendary stadiums, legendary fans, and legendary players.

The ‘Cuse came into the game as the #2 team in the country while Duke had slipped to #17. Really, Duke #17?? The Orange had a chance to open the season with a school record 21 straight wins. In 2 out of the last 3 years they started out 20-0 only to falter in their quest for 21 straight. But there is something different about Jimmy Boeheim’s team this year. There is not a better starting 5 in the country than Fair, Christmas, Cooney, Ennis, and Grant. In the past, Syracuse has had 1 or 2 go to guys but this year, any one of these 5 can go off and lead the team. Duke, on the other hand, has relied on super freshman Jabari Parker to carry them. Sure, others have had great nights to lead them, but Parker has had to be the man every night. So, the game was set between 2 of the greatest basketball in the history of the game….in front of the largest crowd ever at the Carrier Dome ( 35,446 )….with millions of ESPN fans watching. Neither team could pull away and the lead went back and forth all night long. In the end, just when you thought the Orange was going to pull away and win, another Duke miracle happens and Rasheed Sulaimon buries a 3 pointer to send the game into OT. More hoops…more Dick Vitale…it’s awesome baby!! I will say it – Coach K wouldn’t – but 3 Dookies got fouled out and none for the ‘Cuse?? Hood gets fouled going in for a game winning dunk and there is no call? Did Duke get a home job? Roll the tape, that doesn’t lie! Parker’s fifth foul was a joke. That flop would get you fined in the NBA!

So, what does all of that mean? The Big East, one of the great conferences of all time is no longer. Some of the greatest college basketball rivalries ( St. Johns vs. Georgetown, St. Johns vs, Syracuse, Syracuse vs, Georgetown ) have gone away. Some of the greatest coaches – John Thompson and Lou Carneseca. But if last night was any indication of what the “new” ACC will become, we can expect an even better league than the former Big East! We already saw earlier in the week a great game with Duke going into Pitt and winning. Guess what? With Louisville moving to the ACC next year, the ACC will become the greatest basketball conference ever assembled! Still can’t hang with the SEC in football though! You know what is ironic about all of this? We aren’t even mentioning UNC. The ACC has been totally dominated by Duke and UNC over the years and the Heels are now on the outside looking in!

With #1 Arizona falling to Cal last night, Syracuse will take over the top spot in the land with that thrilling 91-89 OT win over Duke. The game of the century rematch will take place at Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 22. The Cameron Crazies will be out of control. Ticket prices will be ridiculous. The ESPN hype will be wild. Let’s just hope that both of these teams can rebound from last night’s emotional drain and take care of business until then.

The BCS National Championship game between Auburn and FSU, last night’s Syracuse – Duke game, let’s hope the Super Bowl can give us a memorable game like those collegiate games!!

Super Bowl Security Command Center

The countdown continues to Super Bowl XLVIII, but thousands of people are already hard at work securing MetLife Stadium.

Super Bowl XLVIII (2014) kicks off at chilly MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 6:25 p.m. ET.

Security Super BowlCBS News recently got a rare look inside the secret command center keeping a close watch on everything.

For security  reasons, the network was  asked not to disclose the exact location of the command center created for the event, but CBS News’ correspondent did disclose that the sight  is within close proximity to MetLife Stadium where the game will take place.

The command center is the base for thousands of people, from government and private agencies and according to sources it fully staffed and operational.

The center is operated by hundreds of people, from the military, law enforcement, federal agencies, and  utility companies just in case there is a repeat of last years power outage.  ,   Along with the centers fully staffed personnel, sources say that  Six thousand more people will be stationed around and throughout the stadium.

New Jersey State Police Lt. Col. Ed Cetnar is the incident commander. Centnar said they’ve  been coordinating and exercising procedures   for the event for more than two years.

They are  now executing their plans and putting everything in place,” Cetnar said.

Along one wall, an enormous television screen displays a wide range of images and information. It gives access, Cetnar explained, to hundreds of camera feeds.

A helicopter hovering over the stadium feeds real-time images back to the command center. It has the capability of using infrared and night vision to spot people and will also be equipped with a SWAT team and sniper.

The personnel in the command center will not only have to keep an eye on the stadium, but also how people get there.

“We have a mass transit super bowl,” Cetnar said. “We have trains coming in, we have buses, and we have vehicles also coming in here. Of course, Super Bowl week, there ‘s a little bit of enhanced security for what we have to do because we have a great influx of folks coming into the region.”

Six-year-old dog Warner and his handler, Sgt. First Class Archer Jones, are part of the team.

“Warner is trained to detect 16 different types of explosive odors,” Jones said. “Everything from commercial-grade explosives to military-grade explosives to homemade explosives.”

Warner has been working 17-hour shifts on icy, salty ground. So he’s been issued some special equipment — rubber-soled booties with Velcro clasps to protect his paws while he’s out doing work.

Super Bowl Weather Update

The Farmers’ Almanac is using words like “piercing cold,” “bitterly cold” and “biting cold” to describe the upcoming winter. And if its predictions are right, the first outdoor Super Bowl in years will be a messy “Storm Bowl.”

The 197-year-old publication that hits newsstands Monday predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It also predicts a colder-than-normal winter for two-thirds of the country and heavy snowfall in the Midwest, Great Lakes and New England.   Read more here

Funny Super Bowl Wagers

From the color of Gatorade to Richard Sherman’s rant…Las Vegas sports enthusiast have released a number of hilarious wagers for the upcoming 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII.

  • Will it snow during the game?

Yes                  +300     (3/1)

No                    -500     (1/5)

Super Bowl Weekend:  Snow Bowl or Just “Hot Air”?

Super Bowl Weather We’re now four to five days away from Super Bowl weekend, and the specifics, while still with some uncertainties, are starting to come into view now.

  • Saturday: A warm front is expected to lift northward through northern New Jersey as a cold front approaches from the west. This may spread some rain into the region sometime Saturday into Saturday night. To be clear, this is not a major storm, however, low clouds/drizzle may trigger flight delays at the three NYC airports.
  • Super Bowl Sunday: Fortunately, Saturday’s system will have exited well into the Canadian Maritimes by early in the day. So, expect clearing skies, a lingering breeze, perhaps a leftover early morning flurry, and temperatures fairly close to average for early February.
  • Outlook for the Super Bowl (6:30 p.m ET):  Kickoff temperature should be in the 30s, possibly dropping into the upper 20s by late in the game. Any breezes from the afternoon will be diminishing, so we don’t expect wind to be a factor, at all. No rain or snow expected.

According to NFL Executive Vice President Eric Grubman, the game could be played any day from Friday, January 31 to Monday, February 3, in case of a major winter storm.

  • Will the power go out in the stadium during the game?

Yes                              25/1

I’m sure the NFL would like to avoid a second straight Super Bowl where the lights went out during the game.

  • How many times will Peyton Manning say “Omaha” during the game?

Over/Under                   27½

Give me the over.

  • Will Michael Crabtree mention Richard Sherman in a tweet during the Super Bowl from kickoff until final whistle?

Michael Crabtree twitterYes                  +150     (3/2)

No                    -200     (1/2)

Michael Crabtree (KingCrab15) on Twitter

Warren Sapp wasn’t a big fan of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s taunting and trash talking after the NFC game.

  • Will the announcers say the word “Marijuana” during the game?

Yes                  +550     (11/2)

No                    -900     (1/9)

NFL could indeed change its mind about marijuanaThe only two states (Colorado, Washington) where marijuana has been legalized for recreational use are sending teams to the Super Bowl. Commence, “Weed Bowl”.  So it probably shouldn’t come as any surprise that Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about marijuana on Monday.

Carroll wasn’t asked about recreational marijuana use though, he was asked his thoughts on the use of medicinal marijuana in the NFL.

“We have to continue to explore and compete to find ways that are going to make our game a better game and take care of our players in the best way possible,” Carroll said.”The fact that it’s in the world of medicine is obviously something [that Commissioner Roger Goodell] realizes and him making the expression that we need to follow the information and the research absolutely I’m in support of. Regardless of what other stigmas may be involved, I think we have to do this because the world of medicine is trying to do the exact same thing and figure it out and they’re coming to some conclusions.”

  • Will any member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers be shirtless during their performance

Red Hot Chilli Pepper Super BowlYes                  EVEN   (1/1)

No                    -140      (5/7)

  • What Color will the Gatorade (or liquid) be that is dumped on the Head Coach of the Winning Super Bowl Team?

Super Bowl GatoradeClear/Water                   2/1

Orange                         3/1

Yellow                          3/1

Red                              5/1

Blue                              7/1

Green                           10/1

Is lemon lime gatorade green or yellow?

  • If the Broncos win will Peyton Manning retire before game 1 of the 2014 Regular Season and sign an endorsemnt to become the face of Omaha Steaks?

Yes                  +700     (7/1)

No                    -1500    (1/15)

No way, right?  Archie Manning, said he expected his son to continue to play for the Denver Broncos beyond this season, even if he added a second Super Bowl championship to his long list of accomplishments.

“I think he still enjoys it,” Archie Manning said in a phone interview. “If he can continue to enjoy it and stay healthy, I think he wants to play.”

Peyton Manning, who turns 38 on March 24, has not missed a game for Denver despite multiple surgical procedures on his neck that sidelined him for the 2011 season, his last with the Indianapolis Colts.

Peyton Manning Omaha

Manning’s use of “Omaha” became such a huge story indicates just how little we all understand about the game. Manning’s ability to read, react and adjust at the line of scrimmage is well documented, but how he does it seems to be a mystery.

In fact, Manning does many of the same things at the line of scrimmage as other quarterbacks. Manning isn’t the only quarterback that uses the word “Omaha,” and he isn’t the only quarterback that adjusts protections, routes and plays at the line of scrimmage, either

 

The difference between Manning and other quarterbacks is that he almost always makes the correct adjustments. When he’s wrong, he and his receivers know how to adjust after the snap.

Peyton Manning Explains the Meaning of Omaha

Peyton Manning has made some sense of all this “Omaha” hoopla. Wednesday during his AFC Championship game week press conference Broncos quarterback Peyton answered tie big question…Peyton, what’s up with Omaha?   Manning said “Omaha, it’s a run play.”

“But it could be a pass play, or a play-action pass, depending on a couple of things: the wind, which way we’re going, the quarter, and the jerseys that we’re wearing,” Manning said.

“It really varies, really, from play-to-play. So there’s your answer to that.”  Now you know the rest of the story…

Will Richard Sherman be interviewed on field after the game on the live FOX broadcast?

sherman-interviewYes                  -110

No                    -110

I don’t see why not.  In case you missed it…watch video here

What will be higher?
