2012 NFL Scouting Combine Final Invitee List Released

So who exactly will Dallas be picking from to try and catch the New York Giants? Great question. Although the league has returned to it's normal routine of having free agency precede the amateur draft, star players have more or less been staying with their franchises over the last few seasons. The draft is really the best opportunity to find two or three difference makers; the question is how adept is the team at finding those.

Dallas has drafted well the last few years in the early rounds, netting Dez Bryant, Sean Lee, Tyron Smith and DeMarco Murray. All four of these players appear to be franchise cornerstone type commodities. So who will they be eyeballing in this coming draft? They have plenty of holes to fill. Interior offensive line, defensive line, secondary just to name a few. The linebacker corps could also use some help. Basically, everything but the offensive skill positions.

The combine will return to the scene of the Super Bowl, Indianapolis, between February 22nd and 28th. Here's a look at whom Dallas will begin their process of elimination with, the complete invite list for the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine, just released this morning.

Super Bowl TV Ratings: Giants And Patriots Not Expected To Break Viewership Record

Super Bowl XLVI was certainly an unforgettable world championship game, with the outcome determined on the final Hail Mary pass from Tom Brady, but it may not have broken last year's record viewership to become the most watched event in American TV history.

Sports Business Journal's John Ourand is reporting that the overnight rating for the game is a 47.8 rating, which is one tenth of a point less than last year's 47.9 rating. In addition, Ourand predicts that the total viewership numbers (released later today) won't eclipse last year's record setting mark by the Steelers and Packers (106.5 million viewers).

The overnight numbers were huge in Boston and New York, obviously, with Beantown scoring a 56.7 over New York's 49.7 rating. So far the biggest ratings winner is Madonna - the overnight rating for her halftime performance is a 48.3, higher than the game's total 47.8.

Best Super Bowl 2012 Commercials: Chevrolet With OK Go, The E-Trade Baby

The band OK Go collaborated with Chevrolet to sell the Chevy Sonic by creating a music video where the majority of the music came from the car for their latest song "Needing/Getting." OK Go is known for making different music videos which include treadmills, an extremely low budget video, performing the Muppets theme song and using trained dogs.

This is one of the more original spots from the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl XLVI MVP: Eli Manning Wins Second Super Bowl MVP

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning can now be considered one of the leagues elite quarterbacks as he won his second Super Bowl MVP award, both coming against the New England Patriots. Manning had a stellar game and started the game off hot by completing his first 12 passes to start the game.

20120205211009_medium

Manning completed 30 of 40 passes for 296 yards with one touchdown pass and no interceptions. Manning's touchdown pass was on their first drive of the game and a 2-yard pass to Victor Cruz. Manning also completed a classic Super Bowl catch to Mario Manningham which was a 38-yard pass on their game-winning drive, and went five of six for 74 yards on their final drive.

Super Bowl XLVI Final Score: Giants Edge Patriots In Classic Game, 21-17

The winner of Super Bowl XLVI is the New York Giants who came back from an eight-point third quarter deficit to win 21-17. The Giants offense was having trouble once they got into the New England Patriots side of the field throughout most of the game and particularly in the third quarter where the Giants were held to two field goals.

In the fourth quarter the first two possessions for each team were lengthy drives, but the end result was each team punting. The Giants second drive of the fourth quarter ended up being the game winning drive. The drive was a nine-play 88-yard drive with the key play being the first play which was an amazing catch by Mario Manningham who caught a 38-yard pass along the sideline while being doubled team and somehow he got both feet down while remaining possession.

The game-winning touchdown was a 6-yard Ahmad Bradshaw run, and Bradshaw actually wanted to down the ball at the one, but he fell into the end zone which allowed the Patriots one last chance.

The Patriots had one last chance to win the Super Bowl with 57 seconds left and Tom Brady drove them to midfield and had to attempt a Hail Mary on the last play, but the Patriots in the area were not able to come down with the ball.

Eli Manning led the Giants tonight by completing 30 of 40 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown. This is the Giants second Super Bowl win in four years and their fourth overall.

Super Bowl 2012 Score Update: Patriots Lead 17-15 Heading Into Fourth Quarter

The New England Patriots entered the the third quarter the same the way they ended the second quarter, which was shredding the New York Giants defense. Tom Brady led the Patriots on an eight-play 79 yard touchdown drive which was capped on a 12-yard touchdown pass to tight end Aaron Hernandez.

The Patriots offense is clicking on all cylinders over their past two drives, which happened to lead to touchdowns. On this third quarter drive Brady completed all four of his passes and has now completed 15 straight passes which is a Super Bowl record.

On the Giants fist possession in the second half they had a 34-yard kick off return by Jerrel Jernigan who set up the Giants with good field positoin at the 35-yard line. The Giants offense moved the ball into Patriots territory but they stalled on a 3rd and 10 play where Eli Manning's pass to Mario Manningham was only good for five yards, so they had to settle for a Lawrence Tynes 38-yard field goal to make the score 17-12.

The Giants were able to get more points on the board, but it was another field goal. After having their best field position of the game at the Patriots 48-yard line after a punt. However, the Giants did make it to the red zone at the 15, but that is where the drive stalled. On 3rd and eight Eli Manning was sacked for a loss of six yards. The end result was a 33-yard field goal to make the score 17-15 after three quarters.

2012 Super Bowl Halftime Show: Madonna Showcases Old Age, Irrelevance

Madonna, through no fault of her own, was forced into a corner for the Super Bowl 46 Halftime Show -- she had to follow up a magnificent 96 yard touchdown drive orchestrated by Tom Brady, as the Patriots took a 10-9 lead into halftime.

Madonna's show opened up with Roman gladiators slowly making their way across the field to the stage, before Madonna herself revealed herself on a throne before the lip syncing commenced for her hit song Vogue. As expected, there were plenty of background dancers which added little to nothing to the performance.

Vogue, at least, showcased a futuristic stage which showed various images throughout Madonna's illustrious career.

The lackluster opener segued into Music, which again illustrated Madonna's lip syncing. The backup dancers, meanwhile, prove to be more agile than Madonna -- as one would expect. If anything, Madonna was upstaged by her backup dancers during the second song of her set, something that could perhaps humble the music icon.

Music then segued into LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It, for all of a quarter of a minute, before Madonna's new song, Give Me All Your Luvin', was showcased. Nicki Minaj's appearance during the halftime show, just like her appearance on Madonna's track, seemed horrendously out of place -- just like M.I.A.'s appearance.

Give Me All Your Luvin' segued into Express Yourself, with a guest appearance from Cee Lo Green, before moving into Like A Prayer, which showcased the best part of the halftime show, as the backup singers and dancers quickly turned into a gospel choir, as Madonna, Cee Lo and the choir finished up the show with her 1989 single.

The only thing Madonna proved during the Super Bowl 46 show is her irrelevance; the halftime show was so obviously lip synced that it was painful. Madonna, though, did lip sync perfectly in time, which is much easier said than done. At least Madonna saved the best for last, and proved to be more entertaining than the Black Eyed Peas, though, that's not saying much.

Super Bowl 2012 Halftime Score: Patriots Lead Giants, 10-9

The second quarter featured a lot of punting and defense as the New York Giants were forced to punt twice with the New England Patriots having to punt once. However it was only the Patriots who were able to put points on the board as they scored all 10 of their points in the second quarter by scoring on their first and last possessions. The first points was a short 29-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski to give the Patriots their first points of the game.

In between that field goal neither the Giants or the Patriots were able to move the ball that much as the defenses were stopping each other teams offense.

On the Patriots touchdown scoring drive they began at their own 4-yard line and easily made their way down the field against the Giants defense. The Giants vaunted defensive line was not able to get pressure on Tom Brady who was a perfect 11-for-11 on the scoring drive. The touchdown was a 4-yard pass to Danny Woodhead.

So far in the first half Brady is 15-for-18 with 147 yards and Eli Manning is 13-for-17 for 120 yards. Both quarterbacks also have thrown one touchdown pass apiece.

2012 Super Bowl Prop Bets: Safety Happens For First Time Since 1991

Super Bowl prop bets are a huge part of the game and a lot of them are sucker bets, such as a defensive player will score the first touchdown, will there be a fumble return for a score and one of the biggest money wasters is predicting that a safety will happen.

However, a safety did happen in this Super Bowl and it happened on the first play of the game for the New England Patriots. Tom Brady dropped back for a pass on his first play into the end zone and threw the ball away down the middle of the field, and there was no receiver in site. By being in the endzone a safety was called. The odds for a safety were 50-1 and this was the first safety since Super Bowl XXV.

Here are other prop bets that happened in the first half:

• The first play of the game was a run by the Giants.

• The first reception of the game was by Jake Ballard on the Giants' opening drive.

• The first touchdown of the game was by Giants wideout Victor Cruz. The odds were 12/1 against Cruz being the first player to record a TD.

• The first touchdown was two yards with the prop bet being over/under 10.5 yards.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Skechers Spot Has Mark Cuban Cameo

Dogs have been prominent feature in Super Bowl commercials this year. Skechers gets in on the act by promoting a new pair of work running shoes in a Greyhound dog race with one bulldog who looks out of place. The bulldog is wearing the Skechers GOrun shoes and completely destroys the field and pulls up just before the finish line and moon walks pass the finish line for the win.

The surprise in the ad comes at the end when there is a cameo by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

The New York Giants are leading the New England Patriots 9-0 after the first quarter in Super Bowl XLVI. The Giants got on the board first when Tom Brady was called for intentional grounding when he was sitting in the endzone and threw the ball away down field where there was no receiver in site, and that was the Patriots first play of the game.

The Giants then received the ball on their next possession and were able to carve up the Patriots secondary and scored a touchdown on a nine-play 78 yard drive. The drive almost came up for naught when the Patriots Sterling Moore stripped the Giants Victor Cruz, but the Patriots had 12 men on the field so the penalty trumped the fumble.

The Giants then scored on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Cruz to give the Giants a 9-0 lead after the first quarter. So far on the day Manning has gone a perfect nine for nine with 77 yards. The nine straight competitions is a Super Bowl record.

The Patriots would not be held off of the scoreboard for long as they were able to put up a 29-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.

Sterling Moore's Huge Play Negated

SMU’s Sterling Moore has made a habit of making big plays for the Ponies and now the Patriots. He saved the Pats’ hides by stripping a ball late from Anquan Boldin in the AFC Championship game, and with New England down 2-0 and the ball at their ten, Moore stripped the ball from the Giants’ Victor Cruz, forcing a fumble which New England recovered.

Unfortunately, one of Moore’s teammates failed to leave the field. New England was penalized for twelve men on the field, resulting in a first down for the Giants and a touchdown two plays later.

That’s how you lose big games, Patriots.

Small Capacity In Lucas Oil Stadium Costs NFL Money: Charean Williams

Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star Telegram had an interesting tweet Sunday before the Super Bowl:

This will be the fourth-smallest SB crowd in history at 68,000. Some $40 million less in ticket sales alone than NFL made last year.

While $40 million isn’t necessarily the be-all-end-all in this NFL world, this factor, combined with the capacity of Dallas-Ft. Worth to absorb a huge number of visitors and what is ordinarily nice weather, does make it easy to predict that the Super Bowl will be back in DFW before too long.

Let’s hope that a lot more icy road equipment is around, just in case.

Super Bowl Commercials 2012: Honda CR-V Brings Back Ferris Bueller

Honda has brought in Matthew Broderick to reprise his role in Ferris Bueller's Day, but instead of skipping school as in the movie, Broderick is ditching on an acting gig to take advantage of the great weather. Of course along the way he is nearly spotted by his boss a few times, but he does not get ditching a day of work.

Here's the full Ferris Bueller Super Bowl commercial for the Honda CR-V.

The Honda CR-V does get air born at the end of the commercial, but it probably does not have the same feeling as doing that in a Ferrari as was done in the movie.

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, finely chopped
2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
1 tablespoon butter

Approximately 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
4 cups grated Monterrey Jack cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
Couple packages of flour tortillas
Paprika
Chives

Preparation
Preheat oven to 350°F.


Cook and chop or shred chicken breasts; set aside.

Sauté garlic, onion, and green pepper in oil and butter until slightly tender. Stir in flour and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Add chicken broth, mix until smooth and cook until thickened. Add chilies and salt. Add 1 1/2 cups cheese and stir until smooth. Reduce heat. Add sour cream and stir until smooth. Place large scoop of chicken, cheese, and sauce in center of each tortilla. Roll up and place in oiled large baking dish. Pour remaining sauce over all rolled up tortillas and sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Sprinkle with paprika and chives. Bake, covered, about 25-30 minutes. Uncover and broil for 2 minutes just to add a nice brown tint to enchiladas.

Serve with sliced avocado, chopped tomato, and salsa on top!!

2012 Super Bowl Line And Odds: Patriots Are A Slight Favorite

The New England Patriots have been widely considered to be the better team heading into Super Bowl XLVI with the New York Giants being considered the team that got hot at the right time. When the betting lines opened the Patriots were a 3.5-point favorite, but since that first line was released it has shifted toward the Giants and the line has dropped to the Patriots being a 2.5-point favorite.

According to Odds Shark, the public has been betting the Giants heavily at 60 percent, however typically when the majority of the public bets one way the opposite result is likely to happen. A more logical reasons that the Giants have gained a point in the line is because of the ankle injury that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski suffered against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game.

A few things to consider between these two teams is that the Patriots have lost their last three games against the Giants when favored and they have gone 2-6 against the spread when facing the Giants, so place your bets accordingly.

The one consolation that Dallas Cowboys fans can take into consideration is that they played both of these teams fairly close this year, but all three were loses with the season finale really stinging with the 31-17 loss to the Giant which knocked the Cowboys out of the playoffs.
