  • This Was the Only Super Bowl Ad that Wasn’t Lame as…

    With 2014 being unofficially dubbed the year of #outrage, Super Bowl ads definitely dulled down any shred of controversy we’ve become accustomed to seeing on Super Bowl Sunday. It’s always nice to see a feel good commercial, but a half ass attempt at funny targeted at an audience who’s completely numb to shock value already is a recipe for disappointment. If one good thing came out of yesterday’s billion dollar ad day, it was the latest trailer for Jurassic World, trained raptors, hybrid carnivores and so many people being eaten. In case you missed it, here it is.

  • Statistics Prove That Defense is More Important Than Offense in the NFL

    It happens at the beginning of every September; 32 NFL teams come out of the woodshed that is Training Camp—vying for a chance to play in the Super Bowl. But, when asking the question about what it takes to win the Super Bowl, even those who have won the Big Game are somewhat divided about what it takes. However, what is true is that 11 out of the past 15 first overall draft picks have been quarterbacks, the current NFL era is hailed as the “Golden Age of the Quarterback,” and the rules allow for passing stats that were previously only thought to be possible in the Madden NFL video game franchise. But, is a top-tier quarterback and a high-powered offense the most important element needed to hoist the Lombardi trophy? The numbers may be in contrast with the widely assumed winning formula, but we will attempt to make sense of all of the stats.

  • Super Bowl XLVIII Starters’ Salaries (infographic)

    Last night Super Bowl XLVIII took place and was lopsided to say the least. The Seahawks dominated the game from the get go and have the Lombardi trophy in their grasp. At the end of the day, however, all the players on the field are really all winners. With the Sylvester Williams trailing the salaries of Super Bowl starters at $426,000, I’d say every player waking up today in their Jersey City luxury hotel room should have a smile on their face.

ESPN projects ticket sales to eventually rise, but until weather projections become better tickets will With weather definitely being the major concern, travel also plays a factor for the teams involved. Although the match up is about as good as one can hope for, local fans from both teams have over 4,000 miles in travel distance combined. Because of the original projected price of tickets, fans were less likely to afford those prices combined with traveling that distance to watch their team compete in harsh conditions. Now that ticket prices have dipped, travel expenses have risen making a catch 22 scenario for fans willing to fly across the country to more »

  • Paul Rudd And Seth Rogen Star In A Super Bowl Commercial [Teaser Trailer]

    With Super Bowl commercial prices hovering around $4 million per 30 seconds Samsung has decided to throw their hat into the ring. Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen pitch their ideas for an actual two-minute long big game spot to Bob Odenkirk from the “Mr. Show.” The catch — the two actors can’t say the words “Super Bowl,” “The 49ers,” or “The Ravens.” (Which are actual rules.) But “el plato supremo,” “50 minus 1ers” and “Baltimore Blackbirds” are fine. 72andSunny is the shop behind Samsung’s regularly hilarious commercials. The Super Bowl ad will be directed by “Iron Man” director Jon Favreau, and if this is any indication, it’s going to be pretty good. [Source: BusinessInsider.com]
