    Gotta be top 5 iconic ads from the Super Bowl, all time. They released the 2018 official ad which does feature Cindy, and her son along with a few other celebs:

    This is the Pepsi

    Overall, New England might be favored on paper, but the Philadelphia defense I feel will step up big time and make the ultimate difference in a close game. I pick the Eagles to win with a last second field goal by Jake Elliot.

    Yeah, good call. I think the game will come down to Philly's D line and if they can get to Brady or not enough times. I think they will need to force at least 1 big turnover to win the game.

    Game will be won or lost by the turnover stat is what I'm thinking.

    Super bowl ads are pretty synonymous with selling beer and, let's be honest, selling sex. Or at least they have been for decades by and large. Of course they hawk other stuff like cars and online stuff. But you get my point.

    For Super Bowl 51, I think we all started to see a trend of women empowerment/gender equality ads in response to the cultural spotlight those issues gained throughout that year. And for 2018 and Super Bowl 52, it's no surprise that the #MeToo movement is effecting the tone of Super Bowl ads across the board.

    While I haven't seen any #MeToo ads specifically, its clear no advertiser is wanting to sell sex this year. Perhaps that trend started last year. But it's full effects are on display in 2018. It's been reported not one single ad will be 'sexy' this year, at least not in a way that objectifies women. Sure, Chris Pratt goes shirtless for a few seconds. But that's about it.

    In no way am I saying this is a bad thing at all. Just find it interesting how Super Bowl advertisers have their pulse on what does and doesn't fly in culture in the given year, and how they adapt accordingly. In fact if you want to see what did and didn't fly in a given year culturally speaking, all you have to do is look at that year's Super Bowl ads as a whole.

    Do you think this will be the new norm for advertising going forward? Or do you think a backlash is coming?

    Heard they tried to charge PETA twice the fee to run a commercial, like $10 million vs $5 million. Not sure if that's true or not. Might have just been PETA trying to make a splash. Either way, at least that ad was way more 'TV acceptable' over their sex ad from a few years ago 'Last Longer'.

    Those last 2 wins were key. If they had lost either of those, Rodgers would have probably sat for the rest of the season. But now that they are 7-6, they have a legitimate chance for the playoffs. As a wildcard.

    I think they will win too. I actually think they will win out. But hard to see them passing Seattle and the Falcons for the 6th seed. They do play the Lions, so they can at least control jumping them in the line for that last spot. Have to get lucky now, and win 3 more in a row.

    Also will be nice to see Jordy Nelson get back to relevance.

    Maybe they finally figured it out? Won the last 2 games pretty easily. Looks like they have gone back to their winning formula of strong defense, keep the game tied or hold the lead while running the ball a ton and only throwing when necessary. Could just be they played the Jets and Colts though..

    Baker Mayfield just guaranteed himself the Heisman. 15-23, 243 yards with 4 touchdowns. No picks. Basically a flawless, close to perfect game for him, on one of the biggest stages. Big 12 champs. Killed TCU 41-17.

    Wonder if this can make them #1 in the country? I find it hard to argue they are not. Guess it comes down to how Clemson and Auburn fair in their championship games.

    Here's the highlight reel/recap of the Sooners win:

    At least he was offered the chance to start.. after the dust settled on this controversy it seems like McAdoo did an okay job with this benching. Though the one problem I have and agree here is why go with Geno? I'd much rather them just skip Smith and go right to Webb, to see what he is capable of.

    With just TCU left on the regular season schedule, Bake Mayfield seems a lock to win.
