Found February 01, 2014 on Patriots Life:
Most Pats fans hate both these guys, so who are we rooting for?Super Bowl Sunday will feature two teams that Patriots fans have some pretty decent reasons to hate.Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos are the most obvious one. The rivalry between the Patriots and Manning goes back over a decade, so it'll be rare to find a Patriots fan rooting for the man with a giant forehead to win. To add insult to injury, the Broncos just knocked the Patriots out of the playoffs in the AFC Championship game.Seattle inspires their own flavor of hate for Pats fans, though much less severe. Talkative cornerback Richard Sherman made his name known around the NFL when he taunted Tom Brady on twitter after the Seahawks beat the Patriots last season. It's left the unforgiving Boston fanbase still feeling bitter over that defeat, and Sherman's boastful words.So, that begs the question, who are Patriots fans rooting for this Sunday? Our writers weigh in with their opinions. Feel free to share yo...
