If you have been reading this site for very long, you know how much I hate Peyton Manning. It is a hatred that goes back to his time at UT before I was even in high school- almost 20 years. So you know what a big deal it is that I will be rooting for Peyton and the Broncos in Super Bowl 50. Yep, that's how much I hate Cam Newton.
Unfortunately, the Panthers have that look of a team of destiny. It is going to be an interesting game with two teams that are really, really good on defense. I have to give the nod to the Panthers, again unfortunately, because they have the better offense.
Peyton will benefit from having two weeks off before the game. That is very important at his age with his injury history. It would be pretty funny if he wins the Super Bowl and rides off into the sunset just like John Elway did.
