Referee Bill Leavy has been named to head the seven-man crew of game officials selected to work Super Bowl XL. You might remember Leavy as the referee who overturned the ruling on the field of a Denver first down with 2:01 left in the December Broncos-Chiefs game. That gave Kansas City the ball back and allowed the Chiefs to run out the clock. It was the right call and a gutsy call. Leavy is a good choice.

Denver's defense carried the team all season, and carried Peyton Manning right to a second Super Bowl ring in his worst season. Carolina's offense joins long list of postseason duds from the 500-point club.
