Both number one seeds facing each other, which is only the second time to happen in the last 20 years. The last time it happened was in 2009 for Super XLIV, Colts vs Saints. Peyton Manning was the quarterback for the Colts then. It also faces the number one offense against the number one defense. Other random Super Bowl tidbits here.
I didn't pick either team to win yesterday, and prior to that I was 8-0 in my playoff picks (doh!). As a long time Saints fan, I'm not prone to rooting for the 49ers, but in this case, definitely. Nevermind the tough losses the Saints have had in the past few years to Seattle, the hubris coming from the Seahawks was reinforced with Richard Sherman's rant on Michael Crabtree immediately after the game was won (Crabtree's no saint either). Something about arrogant people makes it so easy for me to root against them, hence my support for the 49ers. Their defense is incredible, but they also get away with way too many non-calls.
So, who do you think will win? Who do you want to win? Who do you think will get the MVP award? If the Broncos win, I don't see the MVP going to anyone but Manning, unless he plays subpar, like 1 TD, 2 INT and 200 yards passing. If that's the case, then probably a defensive or special teams player would get it. If the Seahawks win... well, I'd rather not think about their egos getting a boost from winning the Super Bowl.
