Super Bowl: Boy was that a smack down. That was a super bowl beating of almost unprecedented proportions. Seattle's great defense becomes a defense for the ages, earning the right to be mentioned with the 70's Steelers, 85 Bears, and 2000 Ravens. A great defense can and did (to our surprise) completely dominate a great offense in the 2014 NFL. If it's possible to feel sorry for athlete earning over $20 million dollars a year, we feel for Peyton Manning. He had arguably the greatest season a QB has ever had, and capped it with one of the worst performances a QB in a Super Bowl has ever had. Ironically, Manning set a record for super bowl completions while being less than a non-factor in the game. Manning was a detriment to his team. The "record" is insult to injury.
Last year the Manning led Broncos had an epic collapse in the last minute of the AFC championship game against the Ravens. This year, from the first play, the team was obviously not ready to play in the super bowl. We're not sure how an athlete and a team recovers from such a thorough whipping. Many members of the Broncos were almost literally frozen from the fear of the big game. As unusual as it sounds after such a great season, the Broncos need to clean house and bring in new blood that is not traumatized from what happened on Super Bowl sunday.
And thus ends the 2013 NFL Season. See You Next Year.
FDLE CHEMIST LAB SCANDAL.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that in over 2,600 cases an FDLE Chemist stole pain pills that he was responsible for analyzing. The chemist was working in the Pensacola lab and it's doubtful his actions affected cases in South Florida.
That being said: Never trust the prosecution's expert without doing a thorough independent evaluation. Never. Ever.
