Peyton Manning. I don't really care... [Laughs] But I'll call it. I have an 11-year-old now, and it's fun to see him care about sports, because he doesn't understand the concept of athletes are playing for money, and one day they may leave... It's happened to me so many times. [Laughs] So I don't care the way I used to. And nothing against the Seahawks, but I've followed Peyton Manning his entire career, and I think this is his time. I think he's gonna put on a real spectacle. And I'ma tell you, I think the real reason he's gonna win is he's on some fuck that punk shit—my little brother ain't gonna have two rings and I can't. You can never underestimate a sibling rivalry.

Seattle's looking pretty strong there right now, they look aggressive. You know for me, I'm always going for the underground cat. It would be good to see Seattle take it down, if they could. Hey, we'll see, though.

Seahawks, they came to play. They focused and Russell got his head right; his connection with the field and players is crazy.

I got the the Seahawks. I don't watch football at all but I don't like how the media did the young boy Sherman. So winning the chip for him is a silent fuck you to the media.

You know what? Honestly, if I am going to pick off the top of my head, I am going to pick Denver to win.

Man, I would say Seattle. Being real, I haven’t been keeping up at all. Ima say Seattle because I saw what’s that guy that went on that rant talking that shit on the camera. He’s like, “Yo motherfucka …” Sherman? Sherman? I was just watching his videos on YouTube and he was just going off. He just seem like a motivated guy. I saw his interviews, and they were just calling him a thug. But he seems like he’s motivated. I really don’t know much about none of those teams cause I haven’t been really watching, I’ve been in the studio. But, I mean, I think Seahawks will probably get it.  Probably think they will. Cause that dude stays motivated. He wants to win a championship, so that’s kind of like how I be, I’m motivated like that. I’m turnt up like that. I’m determined to win.

I’m gonna go with the Broncos. I am gonna go with Peyton Manning. He’s gonna go out with the whole next thing. I don’t think he’s gonna retire, I just think he’s gonna do a fucking John Elway. He’s gonna go and win this year. Win next year and he’s gonna go bye-bye. But listen, it’s going to be a very close game. It’s gonna come down to the wire. It might even go overtime.
