    When I was recovering from surgery back in '95 I watched every Iowa game, every Green Bay game and all the Chicago Blackhawk hokey game. My oldest son lived in the apartment next to mine then and he had no TV. So, he came to my place to watch all the games and drink all my beer.

    Uh @Lara Moss , I really don't have any reason to think that the Panthers are quite that bad. :p I mean that would be a bad run. :eek: That was 28 to 21 for me.

    And nothing says you can't go with the odds, so your not disqualified. :D This is war :mad: .... I mean fun, :rolleyes: right?

    @Ina I. Wonder , I fixed the typo, thanks for the heads up :D Oh, and I will accept your invitation to stake claim to "my" prediction…thank you :):)

    @Sheldon Scott I've added your prediction above! We have a lot of Panthers fans but I know the Bronco fans will be weighing in soon enough :)

    @Bonnie Thomas , you just helped to make watching the game 100% more interesting because
    I'll be watching for the advanced techno enhancements and be able to appreciate them!!
    They sound totally amazing. I can't wait now. Things are getting exciting!!

    Thanks for the link @Bonnie Thomas. I understood more of that than than I do about football. Here's the start of my ignorant questions.

    1. What is a first down?
    2. Does a second down have the same criteria as the first?
    3. How many downs are there?
    4. I have noticed scoring can happen in points of 2, 3, and 7, WHY?

    I'll start with those questions. Told you I haven't a clue. Sorry

    @Ina I. Wonder , you asked what a first and second down are and how many...here you go...

    Downs are like chances to gain 10 yards. That's why the field is measured in yards. The offensive team (the team with the ball) tries to get as much yardage as it can to try and move closer to the opponent's end zone (which is where they head to make their touchdown). Each time the offense gets the ball, it has four downs, or chances, in which to gain 10 yards or more.

    Their first try is called "first and 10". The offensive team must gain 10 yards in order to keep the ball. Meanwhile the defensive team tries to stop them from getting any yardage. I remember a cheer in H.S. "first and ten, do it again" but I digress :rolleyes:

    If the offense only advances the ball 2 yards on first down then their status would be "second and 8". They then play the second down, another chance to get 8 more yards to add up to 10.

    There are 4 downs, in an NFL game. If the offensive team advances the ball at least 10 yards in four tries (plays) or fewer, the team receives another set of four downs. If the offense has failed to advance 10 yards after three tries, the team usually punts the ball on the fourth down to the opponent. The other team then begins with its own set of four downs, traveling in the opposite direction.

    Lara explained your questions well.

    I attended a Football 101 clinic held by the Texans, for women. ..went two different years. It's a fun way to meet players and get some freebies .. shirts, etc. That shirt has been signed, over the years, by 28 players on the team ..past and present, and Toro) Toro is the team mascot.

    Anyway...
    Touchdown = 6 points
    Extra Point = 1 point
    Two-Point Conversion = 2 points
    Field Goal = 3 points
    Safety= 2 points (tackling the opponent in his own end zone)

    On 4th down, they can 'go for it', or most of the time, teams will punt the ball away. It gives the ball to the other team, but also pushes the ball back further for them to get a chance at getting to the end zone and scoring.

    Bonnie, thanks for the point system clarification. I'm impressed that you attend a football clinic! That makes you qualified to be our official "question answerer"! I'll bet Cody, Joe, Ike, and Sheldon would be good too (guys, you know ;)). @John lewis ,I would say you too but I don't know if you live in UK where football is not their priority :).

    Yes, you can change your mind as much as you'd like before the kick-off! Anyone else want to post their prediction? Ina is the only one that believes in the Broncos so far and I KNOW there are others who think the Broncos will win! So far, that makes it:

    Ina predicts Broncos will win………....28-21
    Bonnie
    predicts Panthers will win…..27-17
    Lara
    predicts Panthers will win……...24-20
    Sheldon
    predicts Panthers will win…31-17
    Chrissy
    predicts Panthers will win….24-20

    Welcome to @John lewis ,I had a problem with your video loading properly. If I click on the play arrow it just takes me to another page which is an advertisement. Maybe, if you aren't in the U.S. then it doesn't work here? o_O

    My money is on the Panthers, by 10 points. I don't follow sports anymore, so it's just a guess.:D

    @John lewis , I had the same response as Lara when I tried the link you provided. Anyway, hello and welcome to the forum. As you can see we are having an online party, so I hope you can stay and join in on the fun with us.

    Thanks to @Lara Moss , and @Bonnie Thomas , for the explanations. They do make sense to me, which is a feat in itself. I do have one question Bonnie. What is a Two-Point Conversion? What kind of action is it?

    It seems I have chosen the under dogs, so I best put on my running shoes.

    :D:D:D @ running shoes!

    Ina predicts Broncos will win………....28-21
    Bonnie
    predicts Panthers will win…..27-17
    Lara
    predicts Panthers will win……...24-20
    Sheldon
    predicts Panthers will win…31-17
    Chrissy
    predicts Panthers will win….24-20
    Ike
    predicts Panthers will win by 10 points

    I love your running shoes Ina! ;)
    ...the two point conversion: the team has the choice of going for one or two points after they make a touchdown.
    The one point is kicking it, or they can try to run it into the end zone, that's 2 points if they make it.
    Kicking is more of a guarantee, but they miss those too on occasion.

    Bonnie, good explanation of a two-point conversion.
    Your Football 101 Clinic has payed off because you retained it well and are now helping all of us. Thank you :)

    The News just said the Super Bowl Game Day is the 2nd largest day of food consumption each year. I'm guessing Thanksgiving is 1st. Most popular items are wings, hamburgers, and beer….I guess that's no surprise :cool::p
