Superbowl 2012

Podcast: Super Bowl 2012 Preview

Tom Brady and Eli Manning will meet each other once against on one of sports biggest platforms, the NFL Super Bowl 2012.

In a rematch of Super Bowl XLII, one of the most exciting Super Bowl games of the last decade, Brady and Coach Bill Belichick will look to get revenge for the Giants spoiling their almost perfect season in 2008.

As Brady looks to grab his fourth Super Bowl title, Manning will look to step out of the shadow of his older brother, Peyton, and win his second.

With a receiving core and defensive front line that statistically beats the 2008 team, the Giants look more evenly matched than they did 4 years ago. And a beat up Patriots team could cause some vulnerability, both offensively and defensively.

But you can never count out Belichick and Brady. The combination of these two football minds have created one of the most potent offenses of the 2000s.

In the end, it comes down to who is better on Sunday. Not last week. Not in the Giants regular season win over the Patriots. But, Sunday.

I sat down with Peter Madrid, editor of AZRE Magazine at AZ Big Media, this week and discussed the Super Bowl matchup and our predictions for this weeks podcast.

So tune in below to get a little more insight and information about Super Bowl XLVI.

NFL Superbowl 2012 — Super Bowl XLII — will be televised on NBC at
4:29 p.m., Sunday, February 5, 2012.


Top Five Superbowl Commercials of 2011


Volkswagen:  “Use the FORCE, young car owner”

A wildly popular commercial, Volkswagen’s Darth Vader was a huge success.  It was funny, well made and had iconic references to Star Wars — what more could you ask for?


Eminem & Chrysler:  “Detroit’s two biggest names”

It starts with an intro of “Lose Yourself” from his hit movie 8 Mile; it’s simplistic, serious view of the Detroit life for which Eminem has become famous gave the viewer a chilling, honest feeling.  A perfect example of how being simple can be most effective.


Doritos:  “Finger lickin’ good!”

The past two Superbowls, Doritos has had hit or miss commercials as it attempts to implant itself as an NFL staple.  This one, in particular, was arguably the best they’ve created.  Funny and weird makes for an interesting take — like a Jim Carey film.


Bridgestone: “REPLY ALL”

Bridgestone has been fairly quiet in the Superbowl commercial world, but this year they stepped it up.  An interesting, unrelated way to present car tires, it’s an office nightmare!  “REPLY ALL” can only lead to trouble.


CareerBuilder.com:  “Monkeys!”

Careerbuilder.com delivered a laugh with an unusual take on employee relations in the parking lot — using monkeys.  With success in the past, Careerbuilder delivers another laugh, and let’s be honest…nothing’s funnier than monkeys in suits!
