    Free agency and the draft are finished and they'vee had time to set in. The first pre-season game is less than 3 weeks away. It's still super early, but the off-season is slow and boring. I'd say it's a safe time to throw out some predictions, since must rosters are nearly finalized (for players that are difference makers). So it's time to have this talk.... what's your Super Bowl prediction?!

    I'm edging towards Broncos and Seahawks.

    Reasoning: Broncos have Peyton Manning, it's that simple. They also added Wes Welker, to add with Thomas and Decker. That's a scary trio for Peyton. They then added Montee Ball, who I believe will have a Doug Martin type impression (obviously not as good stat wise) for the Broncos. They bulked up their DL by adding Slyvester Williams and Terrence Knighton. Plus, adding DRC helps the aging Bailey. Still worried about their secondary, although I expect Rahim Moore to have an improved year. Seahawks are banking on Russell Wilson, and i'd fully invest in him - it wasn't a fluke year. Not to mention adding another gamechanger in Percy Harvin will make that offense that much better. Adding Cliff Avril & Michael Bennett on the DL isn't even fair for an already impressive DL. Bobby Wagner is on the rise as a Top-ILB in football. Then they add the BEST NB in the league, Ant Winfield, to pair with already elite secondary. Scary. I have the Broncos winning it all, sadly.

    Runner-ups: Falcons, Packers, and Texans.

    Broncos if john fox lets the hall of famer be a hall of famer and doesn't coach not to lose.

    Seahawks or 49ers to me they are the best 2 teams in the same division. I think the NFC wins the super bowl which ever of these two go

    Comes down to Peyton and Brady in the AFC.

    I'm taking Green Bay in the NFC.

    Texans lose to us in the first round in Houston. Butthurt everywhere.

    It's just too hard to go against a Seahawks/Broncos matchup... And I'd pick the Seahawks to win.

    Last year I said Niners over Pats. Once the playoffs came around I said Seahawks over Broncos... and I would have been right had both teams been able to play defense in the final 30 seconds of their games.

    I can't pick the Seahawks or Niners. I like both, but both have young QB's going into their second year as being a starter. I've seen more guys than not fall off in that second season.

    Giants v Broncos. Giants have proved all you have to do is get into the playoffs, it's at their stadium this season, I see them showing up and they've proved they can win. Broncos because, well let's be real they probably should have been there last year.
