Broncos.

I have been watching Russell Wilson the last couple of games and the bright lights are making him a little skittish and hesitant. Manning won't have that problem on the big Super Bowl stage.

I like Seattles defense but if anyone can beat them it would be Manning and those huge WR's (and the little fast one too).

Looks like they might get lucky for the Jersey SB because temps in the 30s would practically be balmy & comfortable compared to what they've been having back there lately.

I don't get the dirty tag, either. They are physical and aggressive, but I guess some guys like their football to be nice and marshmallowy. They play through the whistle, but that's not dirty. Just good old school style football.

I think I'll root for the Seahawks in this one. The overwhelming hype on Manning would be in full gear if he wins this game, and they might even change the name of the trophy from the Lombardi award to the Peyton is God Trophy and call it the Peyton Manning Football Hall of Fame.

Plus, I like great defenses, and seeing that the Seahawks have never won a SB, I think I'll be a 'hawks fan for a day.

I'll roll Seattle in this one despite being a Peyton fan. Just appreciate strong defense and how those guys play on the field not to mention the respect I have for Wilson and Lynch. Can care less about Carroll but it's about the players and their style of play more for me than the coaches.

Default Re: SuperBowl ... Who you got?

I'm routing for Seattle, and I think they'll get it done.

It is probably the best Superbowl matchup of recent years, in my opinion. Both teams being there have very little to do with momentum - and both had stellar regular season campaigns.

In the battle of Broncos Offense vs Seattle Defense I think that it will be a push, and Seattle Offense vs Broncos Offense, I think Seattle can put an extra 7 over the Broncos in the 60 minutes.

A fantastic matchup for both the neutral and the teams' fans though!

Default Re: SuperBowl ... Who you got?

My guess is we wont see these two teams in the superbowl for a while. Seattle for one has good players that are still in their rookie contract set to make those big bucks. And Broncos are only as good as long as Manning is under center because no way will a Brock Osweiler do what Manning is doing right now.

High around 23 with 10 MPH winds & gusting to 20 MPH. That could translate into a pretty nasty Wind-Chill with 6:30 KO meaning no sunshine.

The All-22: The four faces of Seattle’s stellar secondary
Quote:
There’s been a lot said about the Seattle Seahawks’ secondary this season, and the discussion seems to be evenly split between the group’s predilection for postgame rants and issues with certain NFL policies as much as it’s been about their tremendous play. And that’s a shame, because this secondary has everything required to face off against Peyton Manning’s offense in what will be a tremendous Super Bowl XLVIII matchup...

Also, I feel it's worth noting.... none of the last 47 passing yards leaders have gone on to win the Super Bowl.

Back on September 29, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub threw for 355 yards in a wild 23-20 overtime loss to Seattle. That’s the high-water mark for passing yards against the Seahawks this season. Only one other quarterback — the Saints’ Drew Brees — has exceeded 300 gross passing yards against Seattle.

I know that was the case with He-Who-is-Named-Schwaubie.

Did you watch the playoff game with Frisco? Tagging the punter, obliterating a guy on a kick off return who had already let the ball sail PAST him and wasn't trying to recover it. THAT'S not playing dirty. I supposed J.J. Watt broke his OWN nose when playing them right?
