We'll be publishing a number of articles discussing the Super Bowl, but for those who don't find their issues addressed in those articles, this thread is for an open discussion of any Super Bowl-related topic.
Once again, we ask you to contribute to an intelligent discussion and be respectful to each other. Please don't post just chest-thumping about your favorite team, and please bring something to the table with interesting thoughts and evidence to back them up.
For those interested in reading the first 643 comments, part one of this thread is here.
