Super Bowl 48 start time: Anybody but Seattle, or NFC West pride?

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

We take a look at Super Bowl XLVIII, including why to root for the Broncos. We also have an open thread for discussion.

It's officially Super Bowl time as the game kicks off at 3:30 p.m. PT. We're left to to wonder what could have been, but if you're going to check out the Super Bowl anyway, here is your thread. If you have no interest in talking Super Bowl XLVIII, we've got a non-game thread to talk about everything under the sun EXCEPT the Super Bowl.

For the rest of you, here's your Super Bowl thread. I've picked the Seahawks to win 27-20. I do think the improved weather benefits Peyton Manning, but I think this Seahawks defense will give him too much trouble. I'll go with Marshawn Lynch as the MVP, although a pick or two could net the award for Richard Sherman or Earl Thomas.

While I think the Seahawks win, I'll be rooting for the Broncos. I suppose I could go with NFC West love, but I just can't bring myself to root for the Seahawks. I'm not exactly a Broncos fan, but why root for the Seahawks? Or maybe this is more "not rooting for Seattle", as it is "rooting for Denver".
