  • Per the Las Vegas Hilton.. the Seahawks would be favored by 5 over the Patriots and 3 over the Broncos.. if they win on Sunday.

    I would certainly think yes since we were the #1 seed and they were a #6 seed.

    That was the Steelers SB, the refs saw to it, the crowd clamored for it, and the league threw us under the bus.
    We were simply the victim in the arena for the spectators to watch get sacrificed. Oh my god seeing that smug look on Bill Cowher's face when he went to up for the trophy was so obvious the fix was in. I so wanted shoot the TV that day.

  • Pretty soon I'm going to start looking at long-range weather forecasts for Feb. 2 conditions at MetLife stadium in NY/NJ. And so will you.

  • You guys certainly have the game for outdoor weather in NY. A monster RB with a running QB, and a nasty D. I think Brady and company would fare better than Denver, Brady has played in more bad weather than Manning has. But the best defense should win in that scenario. Is everyone healthy in the secondary at the moment? I'm pulling for you guys, because I like to see teams win that haven't collected a trophy yet. Hopefully my team can join that fray before I move on to a new form of life. Little Slayer reference!

  • Don't read to deep into this, but would SF also be favored? I would assume so.

    @ bolded part: Technically, no. We're actually missing a starter and another good backup IIRC. But they're so good and deep as a group, you can't hardly tell. ;)
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.
