By Brent “The Hawk” Walker
After several beers with DoubleB during championship Sunday and celebrating the demise of the New England Cheaters season like we do every year, we realized that we have different opinions on who is going to win the big game. Thus we decided this year that we would each write our separate case and compare/ debate the big game.
I’m riding with Sheriff Manning and his Broncos, and here is why:
A Case for the Denver Broncos
Sunday, February 7, 3:30 PM
Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, California
1)Carolina Panthers (17-1)
1) Denver Broncos (14-4) (+5.5)
( 45.0 O/U)
In Seattle the consensus is that everyone will be rooting for Peyton Manning and, or, against Cam Newton.
But everyone also seems to think that Carolina will destroy Denver like Seattle did two years ago in SB48 because this Panthers team is built very similar to that Seahawks team. They have a dual threat quarterback, a great running game, a terrific defense and almost always win the turnover battle.
Here’s the thing: it is Denver’s defense that is most like that Seahawks defense, and we all know that defense wins championships. They absolutely demolished Tom Brady in the AFC Championship, sacking him 4 times and hitting him 19 other times, and it was awesome.

Hawk’s Preview of the AFC West, which includes the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, and San Diego Chargers.
No one expected Denver’s offense to match its record breaking output of 2013, where they averaged 340 yards and nearly 38 points a game, but their 2014 version was pretty damn good too. They averaged 291.3 yards a game, 4th highest in the league and 30.4 points a game, 2nd highest. Leading the charge in 2015 again will be Peyton Manning
whom enters his 4th year as a Bronco. 39 year old, hes a future 1st ballot Hall of Famer
and has had a remarkable career. His 530 career TD passes is an NFL record, and at 69,691 career passing yards he should easily break Brett Favre
‘s NFL record of 71,838 yards this season.
Despite dealing with a torn quad the last month of the season Manning still managed to throw for 4,727 yards (4th most in the NFL) and 39 Td’s, 2nd most in the league.
Once again Manning’s favorite receiver was Demaryius Thomas whose 111 catches for 1,619 yards receiving was 2nd only to Pittsburgh’s Antonio Brown in both categories. He also scored 11 times.

Welcome to The Hawk’s 2014 NFL Picks Week 2 Edition.
Hawk is a very busy man but he still took the time to give us his opinion on who’s gonna rule the gridiron in the second week of this glorious NFL season.

I was gonna put up a highlight video of the Seahawks 36-16 dismantling of the Green Bay Packers in Week 1, but I can’t really find one to embed. Just click on the hyperlink that says “36-16”
