2016 SUPERBOWL!!...

Mind Blowing Stats For Superbowl 50

No. 1 Rankings
This will be only the second Super Bowl to feature the No. 1 scoring offense (Panthers, 31.3 PPG) vs. the No. 1 total defense (Broncos, 283.1 YPG). The first such matchup was Super Bowl XLVIII, in which Seattle's No. 1 defense overwhelmed Peyton Manning and Denver's No. 1 scoring offense in a 43-8 blowout.


Become the first
Cam Newton is aiming to become the first quarterback in NFL history to win a college National Championship, Heisman Trophy, Super Bowl and NFL MVP Award.


Search for 200
A victory in Super Bowl 50 would give Peyton Manning his 200th career win, including playoffs. Manning would be the only QB in NFL history with 200+ wins, surpassing Brett Favre (199 wins, including playoffs) for the most all-time.


First Pick
This will be the first Super Bowl in which both starting quarterbacks were former No. 1 overall picks. Peyton Manning went No. 1 overall in 1998, while Cam Newton went No. 1 overall in 2011.


Goal-line Stand
The Broncos' defense has not allowed a single rushing TD to a quarterback this season, including playoffs (1 of 2 teams to do so). Cam Newton is tied with Steve Young for the most rushing TDs by any QB in NFL history (43, regular season only).


Uniforms to Headsets
Super Bowl 50 will be the first time both opposing coaches also played in a Super Bowl. Ron Rivera made the Super Bowl with the 1985 Bears as a linebacker (won), while Gary Kubiak made three Super Bowls as the Broncos' backup quarterback (0-3).


"Keep Pounding"
"Keep Pounding" Jonathan Stewart and the running game, Carolina. The Panthers as a team have rushed for 100+ yards in each of the last 31 games, including playoffs. That's the longest active streak in the NFL, and the longest streak since the late-70s Steelers went over the century mark in 37 straight games. The Panthers were the only team to rush for 100+ yards in all 16 regular season games this year.


Finding the end zone
Luke Kuechly has returned an interception for a TD in each of Carolina's two playoff wins this season, and that bodes well for the Super Bowl. Teams to return an INT for a TD in the Super Bowl are 12-0 all-time, and Peyton Manning threw a pick-six in each of his two Super Bowl losses.


Bay Area Desire
Peyton Manning is 7-1 in his career in road games in the Bay Area (SF & OAK). Manning has won his last seven starts in the Bay Area after losing in his rookie season to Steve Mariucci's 49ers.


Under Pressure
The Broncos hit Tom Brady 17 times in their AFC Championship win. It was the most quarterback hits by any team in a single game this season, including playoffs. Cam Newton has not been hit more than six times in any game this season.


From The Comish
Bill B.


Although we didn't collect money last year, the Comish may want to use his idea below for the 2016 - 2017 season. when I know, it will be here on the website.


So we have $400 in the pot this year, this is my proposal for the split, input is more then welcome this is just a proposal. I'm thinking $250 for Bob oops I meant for the champ. $100 for second place. That leaves $50, I was think of a $50 prize for the highest signal week score. For example, last season in week 4, James scored 149.38 points, after that a lot of guys came close but nobody had a higher score, this would be a REGULAR season award, it's $50 bux that everyone has a shot at, even if your season isn't going well. So what do you think??? I would also listen to ideas for 2 different $50 prizes based on regular season, that would reduce payouts to the top two teams. I thought closest margin of defeat, like randy losing by less then a point last year, but whatever. Please want feedback, this is everyone's money, get creative. But we have to have a final decision before the season starts. Thanks

Steve, Matt, Randy and I will be at the Hotel sitting inthe hot tub, waiting to go to the bar to watch the game, then back to the pool...



The Top 10 Best Superbowl Quarter Backs of all time!



10. Bart Starr

2 games: 61.7% completion rate, 452 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 106 rating

We start our countdown with the quarterback won won the first two Super Bowls. Teams didn't throw as much back when Starr was a star for the Green Bay Packers, but his efficiency in a historic pair of blowout victories speaks for itself.

9. Jim Plunkett

2 games: 63.0% completion rate, 433 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT, 122.8 rating

Like Starr, Plunkett played efficient football in a pair of blowout Super Bowl wins. His Oakland Raiders beat the Philadelphia Eagles by 17 in Super Bowl XV and later topped Washington by 29 in Super Bowl XVIII after moving to Los Angeles.

The Patriots made Plunkett the first overall pick in the 1971 NFL Draft. Needless to say, his best years weren’t in New England.

8. Eli Manning

2 games: 66.2% completion rate, 551 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT, 96.2 rating

There’s only one Manning on this list, and it’s Patriot-killer Eli Manning. Eli isn’t the sole reason why the New York Giants upset the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, but he did lead the game winning drive late in the 4th quarter. His steady performance four years later—again against the Patriots—affirmed his Super Bowl status.

7. Brett Favre


2 games: 56.5 completion rate, 502 yards, 5 TD, 1 INT, 97.6 rating

Favre’s completion percentage wasn’t all that pretty, but his performances in back-to-back Super Bowls with the Green Bay Packers in the late 90’s were things of beauty. He threw two touchdown passes in a victory over the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXII, and followed it up with three touchdowns against the Denver Broncos in one of the best Super Bowls of the decade.

6. Roger Staubach


4 games: 62.2% completion rate, 735 yards, 8 TD, 4 INT, 95.4 rating

Staubach’s Dallas Cowboys went 2-2 in Super Bowls with him under center. In a pair of Super Bowl losses to Pittsburgh, Staubach threw 5 touchdown passes and 4 interceptions against the vaunted Steel Curtain defense. In wins over Miami and Denver, he threw four touchdown passes and no interceptions.

5. Troy Aikman

3 games: 70.0% completion rate, 689 yards, 5 TD, 1 INT, 111.9 rating

Aikman had one of the best individual performances in Super Bowl history in his debut in the big game, throwing for four touchdowns and no interceptions as the Dallas Cowboys topped the Bills in Super Bowl XXVII. He followed that up with solid but unspectacular performances in wins over the Bills (again) and the Steelers.

Aikman’s Super Bowl legacy is driven by that one amazing performance, and his Cowboys teams in the early 90’s were far superior teams than their competition. He won all three of his Super Bowl appearances.

4. Kurt Warner

3 games: 62.9% completion rate, 1,156 yards, 6 TD, 3 INT, 96.7 rating

Warner’s teams went just 1-2 in the Super Bowl, but his performances for the St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals established him as one of the top quarterbacks of his era. The top three single-game passing yards performances in Super Bowl history all belong to Warner.

Warner’s worst game was in Super Bowl XXXVI against New England. He only threw for 365 yards and brought the Rams back from a 14-point deficit in that game. His best performance came in Super Bowl XXXIV, when he passed for a then-record 414 yards and 2 touchdowns against the Titans.

3. Terry Bradshaw

4 games: 58.3% completion rate, 932 yards, 9 TD, 4 INT, 112.8 rating

Bradshaw is one of just two quarterbacks to win four Super Bowl rings. His propensity to connect on memorable deep passes in Super Bowl games played a big part in his success with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Thanks to his remarkable 11.1 passing yards per attempt, Bradshaw only needed to attempt an average of 21 passes per Super Bowl to do plenty of damage in the box score.

2. Tom Brady

5 games: 64.5% completion rate, 1,277 yards, 9 touchdowns, 2 interceptions, 93.8 rating

Even before appearing in his record sixth Super Bowl, Brady holds career records for attempts (197), completions (127), and yards in the event. A win Sunday for the New England Patriots over the Seahawks would make him just the third QB to win four championships. Ahead of that game, Brady is just two touchdown passes shy of the all-time Super Bowl record as well.

He’ll have his detractors due to a pair of uneven performances against the Giants in two defeats, but Brady led scoring drives late in 4th quarters to win or take the lead in three different Super Bowl appearances.

1. Joe Montana

4 games: 68.0% completion rate, 1,142 yards, 11 TD, 0 INT, 127.8 rating

There’s not much to debate here. Joe Montana is certainly the best Super Bowl quarterback of all time.

The San Francisco 49ers won his four Super Bowls appearances as “Cool Joe” never threw an interception in the big game. His game-winning drive against the Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII remains one of the greatest clutch performances in NFL history.

Bolstering his resume, Montana beat a pair of Hall of Fame QBs in the Super Bowl (John Elway and Dan Marino) as well as the Bengals’ duo of Ken Anderson and Boomer Esiason, each formidable in his own right. When the stakes were highest, no one raised his game like Montana.


Honorable Mention: The One-Year Wonders

Sorry, Steve Young and your record six touchdown passes. Apologies to Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, who carried their teams to Super Bowl wins recently. All three of them are incredible signal callers, but one standout game wasn’t enough to crack this list of the 10 best Super Bowl quarterbacks of all time.
