Darting here and there ...

--Considering the Broncos and Seahawks come from the two states that have legalized marijuana, Sunday could shatter all records for Super Bowl munchies consumption.

--Taking that into account, we've not only stocked up on Doritos here at Dartboard Central, we've purchased stock in them.

--Just for Colorado and Washington, wouldn't it have been appropriate to dump Bruno Mars for the halftime show and go with the Doobie Brothers?

--Part of the annual silly Super Bowl mayoral bet two cities lists Denver's "amazing green chile." We're a bit surprised the wager didn't include some amazing green something else.

--So, if you know your fired Raiders ex-coaches, are you rooting for Tom Cable (Seattle O-line and assistant head coach) or John Fox (Denver head coach) to finally get a ring?

--Then there's Greg Knapp, former offensive coordinator for both the Raiders and 49ers, who is now Peyton Manning's quarterback coach. Talk about a job any of us could do, right?

--Manning quarterback coach job stipulations: Must be able to clap hands excitedly and clearly enunciate, "Get in there, Peyton! Go get 'em!"

--Officially Sick Of Dept.: Greatest quarterback ever argument. Look, it'll never be settled. Suffice to say Manning already has secured his place in the inane debate.

--How come we don't judge greatness at other positions based on Super Bowl rings? If we did, Charles Haley would be the greatest player ever, right? He won five, lost none. Nobody else has done that.

--OK, we're fully practiced up on the remote's mute button for "discount double-check" commercials. Enough already, State Farm, time for a new campaign.

--In the wake of Richard Sherman, it's refreshing that Oakland's own Marshawn Lynch prefers to zip it. Of course, that just makes the media horde want to talk to him that much more.

--You know it's time to play the game when you turn on NFL Network and Steve Mariucci is interviewing Aaron Paul from "Breaking Bad." Paul couldn't name the teams Mooch coached. They should have sung a duet of "Crystal Blue Persuasion."

--Goofy Super Bowl story of the week: The Utah zoo ape that has picked six straight winners, against two Florida manatees that have done likewise. Something has to give -- the ape likes the Seahawks, the manatees are going with the Broncos.

--Hey, we've been made to look like a monkey on this game before, so we're siding with the manatees: Broncos 24, Seahawks 20. Seattle seems to set up better in the matchups, but we just can't see Manning losing this one.

--It could be a heavy Bay Area haul when the 2014 Pro Football Hall of Fame class is announced Saturday. The bet here is Tim Brown, Eddie DeBartolo, the previously mentioned Haley and possibly even Ray Guy will make it. Guy's been a finalist seven times previously. Just punt him in, for goodness sake.

--Guy is a "senior nominee" this year, and seven of the last eight senior nominees have gotten in. Believe it: Al Davis, who long argued Guy's candidacy, is paying close attention somewhere.

--It was David Stern's last day on the job as NBA commissioner Friday. The smarmy smirk is finally history. Don't cheer all at once. On second thought, go ahead.

--Mark Jackson declared his own cliché bingo this week when he said, "It's a process," "Don't let go of the rope," and "At the end of the day" all in one sentence. He earned it.

--You're a real golf fan if you can name the top three players on the PGA Tour money list right now -- would you believe Jimmy Walker, Harris English and Chris Kirk? And a guy named Brian Stuard is eighth. Hmm. What's up with that last name, dude?

--Lose in the NFL playoffs, come to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Tom Brady, Alex Smith and Aaron Rodgers are all entered now. So where's Colin?

--Finally, no word yet if Jim Harbaugh will be participating in the AT&T's 49ers-Giants charity shootout Tuesday or the pro-am (which he was in the hunt to win last year). But we'll be on the lookout for pleated slacks.
