Kansas City is a 1-point favorite in SB54. Over/under is 53-1/2. We'll see how the books fluctuate in thirteen days.

49ers ran over the most overrated team of the season. Hard when you have to play an actual team.

I've been telling people that the Packers record was inflated due to a very easy schedule.

Nice to see Kansas City get in their first Super Bowl in 50 years.  Hopefully Andy Reid can end his legacy of failure.

Here's something mindblowing about Super Bowl LIV: The champions from the NFL's 50th anniversary season (Chiefs, they were still in the AFL then) and the 75th anniversary season (49ers) are meeting up in the Super Bowl played in the NFL's 100th anniversary season. Whoa.

On another note, I am referring to this game as the "Joe Montana Bowl".

Could have been the State Farm Bowl had Green Bay won Sunday.

^ And a rematch of the first-ever Super Bowl. I wish that had happened.

Giants QB Eli Manning is to officially announce he is retiring.

^ He's had a great run, beating Tom Brady (TWICE!), but alas, it was for the better he retired. I wish him all my best.

In other news, the Raiders have made their long-awaited move to Las Vegas official.

Eli's going to make an interesting Hall of Fame case, that's for sure.

The positives:

2 time Super Bowl Champion.

2 time Super Bowl MVP.

Longevity and durability Played in 236 games over 16 seasons.

7 seasons of over 4000 passing yards and 3 seats of at least 30 touchdowns.

Retires 7th all time completions, passing yards, and touchdown passes with 4895 completions for 57023 yards and 366 touchdowns.

The negatives:

117-117 record as a starter is pretty pedestrian.

Missed playoffs in 7 of last 8 seasons.

Led NFL in interceptions thrown 3 times.

Never made an All Decades Team and was never a First Team All Pro.

4 Pro Bowl appearances in 16 seasons means he was a Pro Bowler in only 25% of his seasons and the 4 total Pro Bowl selections are low for a Hall of Famer.

I've already heard multiple opinions both ways so this really will be a case that could go either way.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Eli is a hall-of-famer but is not first-ballot. He'll probably get in in about his fourth or fifth year on the ballot.

Eli has one huge thing going against him for getting into the Hall of Fame. When they look at his statistics, they’ll say he wasn’t as good as Peyton.

Which is a rather unfair metric. Very few quarterbacks are as good as Peyton Manning.

That being said, he's a third or fourth ballot Hall of Famer in my eyes. Something like that.

While not an official stat to use for or against induction, both officially and here, those of us in Philadelphia's sphere of influence can't help noting that over the last 24 meetings between the Eagles and Giants, Donovan McNabb (who I'd say comes up a bit short of induction, though he made a good effort) has as many wins against New York (4) as Eli has against Philadelphia during the same stretch.

I Googled the Manning brothers' head-to-head record, and I found out that Peyton beat Eli all three times they played against each other (twice with the Colts and once with the Broncos). So there's another factor working against the younger Manning's Canton aspirations.
