(Yeah, but Russell is far from being a pure pocket-passer!  The boy knows how to roll out and scramble, either to find the open man, or advance it himself.  He’s not NFL tall – he’s only 5’11” – but he’s cagy, like Doug Flutie was.  Now, the Seahawks could employ this tactic against Denver, but Peyton IS NFL tall – 6’5″ –  so he can usually throw over the defenders.  But, if Peyton’s pocket collapses . . . he could be toast!  This should be a real battle, folks!

We have a new clue word today, in “shabby”!  ralis95 is going to have to fire up that old Commodore 64, and update his clue word database!    Just kidding, boss!  I liked the jumbling of “potent” and “lotion” too.  Fantastic answer letter layout!  I really had to play with it some to come up with the answer.  The “Z” was the big factor for me.  I figured that last word had to be “zone”.  Great cartoon, and a great Jumble!  If you go out to a Super Bowl party, and drink, give yourself ample time to sober up before hitting the road again.  Better yet, have a designated driver.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    What a great puzzle!!! I actually flew through the first four jumbled words. The last two had to be worked on a bit. The answer had me for a few…I had a word or two in my head that would not work, but I kept going back to them. And with the “a” being the lead in word to the answer I started working on two letter words…came up with the no…then zone came into view! That front line looked fearless and like a rock wall.

    Unc, great PSA for drinking and driving! Thank you.

    Yes, I had that exact wording in my post, but took it out! Didn’t want to rub it in. It was obvious though. So, I was thrilled with the game outcome. But very surprised it was not a much closer game. All of the games leading up to the bowl had been so great, for me, mostly nail biters. When you look at Peyton’s stats for the game 34 of 49 passes for 280 yards…that’s not horrible. But certainly not enough to stop the Seahawks. They were just plain going to win!

    Toast was the right call above for Peyton.

    You all heard it here ,first, by YUR.

    I know this may sound odd, but sometimes football can be a beautiful game. The Seahawks played a beautiful, near-perfect game. So happy for the Seahawks, Pete Carroll and the fans. Peyton..sometimes it’s just not your day. Just sad that there’s no more football till Fall!

    Well, rats on toast! A couple times I’ve posted, thinking all my info is entered, and I still come up as ‘anonymous’. I obviously must be doing something wrong…sometimes I get an email to confirm signing up, even though I did, ages ago. I sent a ‘Happy New Year’ to all y’all, which came up posted from Anonymous, and then last night’s post, same thing- about football sometimes being a beautiful game to watch when a team is spot on. I know soccer is called ‘the beautiful game’, but I don’t think you can beat a well-executing, precise football team. Anyway, it’s jenn, aka ‘apparently not the sharpest pencil in the jumble world’…Hugs to you all.
