Sports News: America Picks Broncos, Kobe and Salaries
Sports News NFL: America Picks Denver
The Seattle Seahawks were able to dominate the National Football League for quite a while already yet it only took one more loss from behalf of the Seattle squad to be swiped by their Super Bowl rivals.
This time the Denver Broncos were able to rise as the fan´s number one squad, leaving other teams that had also held the title for years way behind in the race.
For the last six years, the Dallas Cowboys have occupied the spot as the favorite team in America. Yet this year a major change took place after the Seahawks took the Super Bowl championship just months ago.
Now, another change has taken and it appears that folks have simply been able to appreciate the fact that a team is currently playing with a Hall of Fame quarterback,
It was the Harris Pole, which put together a survey of 2,543 football fans. For some, it comes as no surprise to see the Denver squad taking such popularity in the nation. Still, for some, its not much about the top number, but about all the changes that took place in the other places of the pole.
The Seahawks didn’t even appear on the first places of the pole, once again proving that fans do change minds.
The Broncos took the first spot, followed by the New York Giants in the 2nd spot and the Green Bay Packers in the 3rd spot.
The Cowboys fell down to the 4th spot after six years of dominating the pole, leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 5th place.
According to NFL experts, these changes could become more evident and perhaps remain for the next couple of seasons if the Broncos continue to play the way they have.
