Cheaters don't deserve to win.

Back-to-back Super Bowl champions and a legit dynasty in the making?

Seattle Seahawks 27, New England Patriots 17

Gronk is so overrated it makes me sick to my stomach.
J.J. Watt would become a better TE if he played there full time.
Jeremy Lane just earned a lot of respect in my book. You tell 'em!

http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/2014...ronkowski-good

RENTON, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks starting nickel cornerback Jeremy Lane paused for a moment Thursday when asked what makes New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski so good, because Lane disagrees.

"I actually don't think he's that good," Lane said. "He's OK. He does have a big body. But from what I've seen on tape, he doesn't like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won't catch that many balls."

Although Case Keenum at his best could be a poor man's Russell Wilson. It was good enough to go 2-0 in 2014. Beating a really good Ravens team which nearly beat the Patriots on the road in the playoffs. They choked two 14-point leads. Who knows how many deflated balls the Pats used in that game to spark those comebacks at Foxborough.

The Texans will more closely resemble New England and not the seacocks when BOB is through putting his touches on the team.

And Seattle fans are total douchebags. 90% of their fans weren't fans a few years ago. Guess if I lived a pisshole town like seattle I could also end up a douchey seacock fans too..

There is no way in hell anybody who knows football thinks Gronkowski is overrated. That's emotion talking, not logic. If you don't like him because he is kind of a douchebag, then fine. But he's a damn good football player. The guy is the most complete TE in the NFL. I do, however, think that Seattle will be able to somewhat slow him down. They have the best set of Safeties and the best coverage LBs in the NFL.

I think Seattle wins. I'll go 23-16. Wilson will take care of the ball and efficiently run the offense in this game. I think their offense matches up favorably against New England, as long as they are able to play to their strengths.

I think their defense limits NE and holds them to FGs in the red zone. They have the DBs to play man on the outside and take away the short passing game. And they have a DL that can contain the running game without having to take LBs out of coverage.

Seahawk fans were behind their team, in strength, way back in the 80's (and before) when Jim Zorn was their QB, Steve Largent (the original Wes Welker) was their leading WR, and Curt Warner was their version of "beast mode". Then there was the Mike Holmgren era when they went to the Super Bowl and lost to the Steelers.

And I hope this year's version takes the SB.

Would love to see Brady get his 4th ring, but I think Seattle's defense is just too good. They will be able to control the ball with their running game and score just enough points to win.

Seattle 17, New England 13

Normally, I don't care about who wins or loses the SB. Just concerned with the point spread. But, I want the Seahawks to win ths game in the worst way. Almost as much as if my team were playing. And I'm not a Seattle sports fan, in the least. Just want to see the Pats humiliated. And I think they will be.

The Seahawks have the Pats kryptonite. A running game. They will dominate the LOS on both sides of the ball. And if we're real lucky, we might see the smug Tom Brady cry on the sideline. That would make it a great Super Sunday.

I think I've turned into The Matrix31.
