Very interesting. I think the Seahawks are one of the most physical teams in the league, and if they can get to Manning early and rough up his receivers, it could be a long day. Manning's known weakness are cold, wet, and/or getting hit early in games. They mentioned a stat on NFLN the other day for these categories, and Manning's record is abysmal when teams shake up his routine and knock him around. His record in incremental weather is horrible, as well. Indy's dome treated him well.

Should be a good matchup, because the Seahawks secondary is so good that they can man coverage every position. They'll knock the snot out of Welker if he tries that pick and roll block again. I'd expect they will greet him with a hit just as hard.

Strength against strength makes this one of the more interesting matchups for me. Don't forget about Broncos run DEF vs. Skittles. Pot roast!

I'm a big Russell Wilson fan but not enough 12th man this time around. Peyton will cement his Hall of Fame career 28-24.

What do you mean? I wasn't aware Aggies attended Seahawks games in large droves.

Only kidding. I agree with you, score should be tight. Looking forward to a good game, and I'm pulling for (and believe in) the Broncos to win.

I think this will be a key reason why the Seahawks defense outperform the Broncos offense. The Seahawks have a physical style I haven't seen across the year from any other team on a consistent basis. Their physicality with WRs doesn't allow quick plays, and their ability to break up offense's attempt to counter that with RB screens/drump offs backs it up.

If Peyton can't get the ball away quickly, Seattle will be able to get him moving around. A large part of the deciding matchup will be if the Bronco WRs can figure out a way to negate the physical attention they are going to get as soon as the ball is snapped (and I personally can't see it happening to a degree that will allow them to win the game).

Analysis Notebook, SBXLVIII: Where Denver Attacks

Quote:
The book on Peyton Manning used to be that you needed to confuse him to have a chance. You had to be able to show one thing and play another, to bait him into making poor decisions and mistakes, to get inside his head.

The Seahawks don’t do things that way. As Richard Sherman said when asked about it, “You can’t get in Peyton’s head, if you get in his head you’ll get lost”. The Seahawks aren’t going to try and confuse him, to outsmart him or to use smoke and mirrors to disguise what they’re trying to do. They’re going to do what they always do – line up in the way they play D and dare you to be better than they are.

You’ve got to respect that attitude...
Quote:
Coming Across

The Seahawks often run a combination of man on the outside and zone across the middle, and the Broncos will use a series of plays that look to flood those zones and stretch specific areas of the defense.

Across the middle the combination of Welker and Julius Thomas will likely be huge. The pair can run a combination of high-low drag or crossing patterns that put the linebackers in a bind. Denver will likely also create this combination using a running back coming out of the backfield to achieve the same effect. They are looking to pressure the underneath coverage from both sides, and together with those hook and curl routes on the outside, stress one side of the defense until it cracks and provides one of the receivers with a window.

Broncos by 10

Seattle has a tough defense and Sherman is gonna shut it down, but he is only one man and the Broncos have 4 different receivers with 10+ TDs...

Same here.
Classic David v. Goliath game IMO.
Peyton, First overall pick, going for his GoaT legacy vs. the 3rd round guy who's too short for the position and was passed over by everyone, twice. Sorry but I gotta cheer for David.

For the record, I lost all respect for the Forehead when he stormed out of Reliant the first time we beat him here. No "good game". No "congratulations I'll get you next time". Just stormed out to the locker room. Where was that Manning "class" then.

I hope he gets shut out. But he won't. the Great Satan ...err Peyton will probably win.
