So, who ya got?
There will be no shortage of storylines in Santa Clara this year.
Peyton Manning possibly attempting to end his career on top, a la Broncos general manager John Elway. Cam Newton, the young upstart, looking to add Super Bowl champion to a resume that may soon also include an MVP award. John Fox going up against the team he led to the Big Game 12 years ago. Ron Rivera looking to become the second-ever Latino head coach to earn a Super Bowl ring. The league’s No. 1 scoring offense going up against the league’s No. 1 defense in terms of yards per play.
We’ve got a two-week wait until kickoff, which is always the longest two weeks of the year for football fans, but there clearly will be plenty to discuss in the next 14 days.
