Super Bowl staff picks

BECKLEY — Cam Huffman (sports editor) — I like the Broncos, mainly because Peyton Manning has about as much experience playing in big games as Mickey Furfari has writing about the Mountaineers. Russell Wilson has been great, but the Super Bowl is an entirely different stage.

Gary Fauber (assistant sports editor) — Wouldn’t matter if Peyton Manning was throwing to Michael Crabtree or Mrs. Crabtree — the teacher from “The Little Rascals” for you young’uns — he will still burn Sherman. Today, Peyton wins his second ring, denying the national media of its license to besmirch his true status as one of the greatest of all time.

Dan Stillwell (sports writer) — Denver will prevail 28-14. Peyton Manning should predict it like Joe Namath. Now can we get back to high school basketball?

J. Daniel Rollins (sports writer) — I understand Peyton Manning is one of the greatest of all time. But Seattle’s defense is just too good. The Legion of Boom will limit Denver’s offensive chances, while Marshawn Lynch runs away with the MVP. Also, Bruno Mars will be terrible.

Rusty Udy (sports  clerk) — I feel Denver will win because they have so many weapons for Manning to utilize. Seattle will have to have a big day running the football, and I think Denver will take that away.
