Clown noses in Denver

I imagine the fans in Denver are all screaming mad about now.

I'm "watching" the game via a Flash program on the NFL web site. So I see the results of each play, but I get no commentary -- and no advertisements. I tuned in just before the end of the first quarter, and I gotta say I'm not impressed.

How long before Denver's coach replaces Manning?

Seattle has scored four times so far, and Denver is completely shut out. They even lost a safety, which is embarassing.

UPDATE: Clown noses and big floppy shoes, too. After that interception they must really be screaming in Denver.

UPDATE: By the way, what was the Vegas point spread on the game?

UPDATE: And greasepaint! I wonder if Denver will even score in this game?

UPDATE: Actually, the Flash file does run an ad every once in a while. But it isn't the advertising overdose you get on TV.

UPDATE: Well, at least they're not going to be shut out. Denver has saved itself from complete humiliation.

UPDATE: Wow, what a slaughter.

1 How long before Denver's coach replaces Manning?

Never.  He's arguably the greatest QB in history, had statistically the best season ever this year, and won his fifth MVP in the process.  Replacing him with Brock Osweiler would be like pulling... well, YOU from blogging and replacing you with a lemur.

At the rate they're going they're going to need an armed guard to protect them at the airport.

Another fumble?

3 The spread was Denver -2.5...

While I thought Seattle would win (always go with the best defense in the NFL when it's in the Superb Owl), I figured it'd be a lot (a LOT) closer than the final result, like 24-21, in that ballpark. 

Plus 10 points for picking the winner.  Minus several thousand points for the score.

When you look back at the history of the Super Bowl, the playoffs don't turn out to be a very good way to pick the teams because more often than not the game is a romp, with one team pretty much overwhelming the other.

Actual Super Bowls where the teams are closely matched and the result isn't certain until the very last minute are really rare.

It's also rare, though not as much so, for the game to be a slaughter like today. But usually they aren't very close.
