what? what did you say?

The seeds of Denver’s stunning Super Bowl self-destruction were planted during Wednesday’s practice when coach John Fox decided to turn down the speakers that simulate crowd noise because “it’s not an away game.” (wanna bet?)

A silent snap count would have been so much better because Seattle’s famed 12th Man showed up on Denver’s first play from scrimmage and helped ruin whatever great game plan offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Peyton Manning had come up with.

Instead of thwarting the Seahawks’ stingy secondary and stout front seven, the Broncos fell apart.

MetLife Stadium might not have been as loud as CenturyLink Field, but it was plenty spirited as the start of all Super Bowls are and when Manning lined up in the shotgun and called for the ball from his 14-yard line, his center couldn’t hear the cadence.

Manny Ramirez crouched still and just as Manning stepped up to reset the play, Ramirez’s snap sailed into the north end zone, where running back Knowshon Moreno smothered it for a safety.

“None of us heard the snap count,” Ramirez said. “I thought I did and when I snapped it, I guess Peyton was actually trying to walk up to me at the time. I’m not 100 percent sure. It’s unfortunate things didn’t go as planned.”

“Nobody’s fault,” Manning said. “It was just a noise issue.”

Nate Silver’s Super Bowl prediction

Via: Salon

Thirty-four-year-old statistician Nate Silver, described by the AP as an “unabashed numbers geek,” stopped by “The Colbert Report” to share his predictions for the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Silver, who accurately predicted the presidential winner in ALL 50 STATES on his blog in 2012, FiveThirtyEight, has moved from covering politics with the New York Times to covering sports at ESPN.

Of the move, Silver told Colbert: “There’s a lot of coverage you see in politics that’s really just gossip about a serious subject, and we want to take a fun subject and be overly serious about it at times.”

But Silver’s analysis of this year’s Super Bowl winner is tough, admits Silver, because both teams are “really good.”

This is only the eighth time that the two best teams  (Denver Number 1 offense – Seattle Number 1 defense) have met in the Super Bowl,” he said. “Usually someone gets upset along the way, so that makes my job really tough.”

Although “the numbers say it’s going to be a tie,” Silver is betting on the Seattle Seahawks, because their numbers were great last year, too.

“Super Bowl Pick of Day”

“Who would I choose?

Well, for what it’s worth, just my two-cents — because my pick really isn’t worth a hill of beans and I trust Americans to choose their own favorite — I say, in order to keep this competitive battle going, to continue the needed vetting and debate, if I were there, I’d vote for Eli!”
