Super Bowl 50 Predictions: Pre-Media Day

I normally talk Super Bowl once and never come back to it, but this time, I feel I need to write after Opening Night. Opening Night begins Monday, February 1st, at 8:00pm, and then comes Media Day the next morning. I think that Media Day is always a good time to see and find out how the players and coaches plan to come in to the Super Bowl with in terms of their mindset (don’t get too carried away like Marshawn Lynch, though). Anyways, here are my predictions for Super Bowl 50, pre-Media Day:

The Players

Expect the players of the Carolina Panthers to come out and show their exciting side of themselves. The team is a bunch of party freaks, honestly, because that’s what the season has been like. The Denver Broncos players, on the other hand, know what it is like to face challenges, and they will come laser-focused and ready to go. I think Denver could use their ability to stay calm to their advantage.

The Coaches

Both Broncos Coach Gary Kubiak and Panthers Coach Ron Rivera have been part of a Super Bowl team. Kubiak was a backup QB and Offensive Coordinator for the Broncos during their Super Bowl runs in ’97 and ’98, and Ron Rivera was part of the ’85 Chicago Bears team as a linebacker, and that team may have been the greatest football team ever.

The Game

After Media Day, you can get an even better feel of what the teams want to do in the game, and how they will come out and pursue their goal. So far, if I had to make a prediction based on how I’ve seen these teams play, I would have to go with the Broncos, knowing they’ve come up big in many, many games this year. QBs Cam Newton and Peyton Manning will light up the field, but the Panthers defense, led by CB Josh Norman, won’t be able to stop the receiving core of WRs Demariyus Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, and TE Owen Daniels. Manning gets the MVP, and retires as the GREATEST OF ALL TIME! Final Score: 41-34, Broncos

NY Jets to Trade Tebow???

There have been rumors that QB Tim Tebow might be traded so that he can become the starter of that team. Here are some trades that could suit Tebow and the Jets as well as many other teams.

Trade Option 1: Tebow to the Carolina Panthers for QB Cam Newton

Many are considering the fact that Newton should be traded, so this will suit both teams because both teams want to trade their QBs from their respective teams.

Trade Option 2: Tebow to the Philadelphia Eagles for QB Michael Vick

Eagles fans desperately want a new QB or at least some new type of offensive scheme that will help them win more games throughout the 2nd half of the season. Tebow might help in some type of way.

Trade Option 3: Tebow and LaDanian Tomlinson to the Jacksonville Jaguars for RB Maurice Jones-Drew and QB Blaine Gabbert

Before Tebow was traded to NY, there were many rumors that he would go to the Jaguars. Many Florida Gators fans would want him back in Jacksonville.

Trade Option 4: Tebow to Arizona Cardinals for John Skelton

Arizona’s offense was red-hot to begin the season, though when Kevin Kolb went down with a ribs injury, John Skelton had took over. After Derek Anderson signed a contract with the Panthers, Skelton had to take over at QB. He was 3-4 as a starter and he was excellent as the starter. Now, it seems that he is a player that has literally lost his mind. If the Cardinals take Tebow in this possible trade, then Tebow might get some great playing time at QB due to the advantage he has with Kolb out, and having targets such as Larry Fitzgerald, Early Doucet, Todd Heap, Jeff King, and rookie Michael Floyd from the University of Notre Dame.

Trade Option 5: Tebow released from Jets and signed by the New England Patriots

When Peyton Manning went to the Denver Broncos, Tebow’s contract was up, and so Denver sent him to the Jets. The Jets are thinking about releasing him, so him going to the Pats would be good because he could play the wildcat or as a RB. Or, Tebow could replace Tom Brady and they could split playing time between each other, so Tebow could play the 1st half, and Brady will lead the way in the 2nd half.

My call: Tebow will either end up in Philadelphia (Philly), Boston (New England), or in Carolina. The Jets will most likely decline all trades from Jacksonville, even though Jacksonville or Carolina are probably the 2 best choices for the Jets to stick with, especially if they want to get rid of Tim Tebow. And so, Tebow ends up in which uniform? We shall await the New York Jets decision from November 1st onwards. Tebow?? Where could he possibly end up before the end of November???
