    Skip Bayless‏@RealSkipBayless37m
    Denver D 7th in NFL vs run. Marshawn can't beast this unit. Can see 80 yards, not 150.

    Skip Bayless‏@RealSkipBayless39m
    Peyton sacked 2.4% of time this yr. Can Sea make him play FOOTBALL, rough him up? Doubt it. Too quick w/ mind&ball. Long dink/dunk drives.

    Denver 20, Seattle 14 b/c of overlooked DENVER D and Mother Nature picks Peyton: 45 degrees at kickoff! RSherman>DThomas but Welker big game
    We got Merrill Hoge, Pete Prisco, and Skip Bayless picking Denver. All we need is Bill Simmons and we are guaranteed a win

  • Cowherd is wavering but he still is sticking with Denver. Simmons will pick Denver when his picks come out today. He claimed on the Cousin Sal podcast that he is not staying for the Super Bowl cause he doesn't want to be there when Manning wins his 2nd.

  • Denver's run D is going to stuff Lynch even though a better one in SF couldn't do that. Using CK logic, if he didn't have that 50 yard TD run he would have had a mediocre day.

    Merrill Hoge picked Denver too so the game is almost a lock to win.

  • Denvers rush D's rank is largely based off of teams not in a position to run because they are behind 1 billion to 0.
    that d is going to be in 50/50 pass/run situations all day and they will be owned by BEASTMODE

  • Simmon's really picking Seattle. He also wants Seattle to win though, so he picked Denver in order to curse them. He alluded to it in his column.

  • Skip Bayless‏@RealSkipBayless36m
    Seattle point differential more than double at home. Seattle just isn't SEATTLE away from Seattle.

    Regular season:
    Denver at home: 136
    Denver away: 71
    Total: 207

    34.3% of total point differential from road games.

    Seattle at home: 123
    Seattle away: 63
    Total: 186

    33.8% of total point differential from road games.

    Woo narratives!

    (Not sure the way I did it was the best way, but I think it's pretty clear there's not much difference between the Hawks and Broncos for point differential.)

    How high was SFs D rated? Denver never played no defense like Seattle's.

  • The most annoying bit of First Take this week was Stephen A Smith insisting he "hadn't made his pick yet" then constantly arguing why Denver was definitely going to win.

    "I haven't made my pick yet... but Denver have Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker. There's no way Seattle can hold them to 21 points and there's no way Seattle scores over 21 points on this defense because they have Pot Roast."

    Every guest who picked Seattle got that response.

    What a bell end.

  • Both ESPN First Takers have been picking against Seattle all season. Seattle ended up 13-3 and made it to the Super Bowl. I wouldn't want them bias rats to pick Seattle this time.. that would ruin the streak! Plus, since Sherman ripped Skip a new a-hole at the start of the year, he has been anti-Seahawks since. Screw them both. Go Hawks!

  • I love how pot roast is suddelly the flavour of the week. "that defense is great cause they have Pot Roast". Is he going to lock down our receivers along with stopping Lynch and rushing the passer?

  • Oh, and all this Seattle can't score more than 21 points is dumb. Seattle scored 23 against the 49ers & Saints. Both have a defense 100x's better than Denver. Oh, and Seattle scored 23 WITHOUT HARVIN. Go Hawks!

  • Poor Mebane. I doubt it bothers him too much, but it's funny that his inferior Denver counterpart is getting so much hype while he remains a relative no name. Says a lot about the quality of these respective defensive units.

    Stephen A kept saying they won't be able to run on pot roast.

    One man is going to stop our entire run defense apparently.

  • Oh thank god!

    That dude is the biggest... turd. Ever.

    I have no idea how he holds onto his job. His reasoning skills are completely inept. Real happy to hear his consistently UNsound logic favors the opposition. Great news.

    I think the absolute worst was Stephen Smiths personality. He was making a mockery of himself in front of that crowd. It was embarrassing to watch. He attempted to play the rude to be cool routine.

    The man has absolutely no knowledge when it comes to football. Even worse he doesn't take the time to prepare and actually study the teams he is reporting on. I guess people find him entertaining, good luck on them because if I at least found him entertaining He wouldn't be a total waste.

    Regarding pot roast, mebane is far better than the fatter guy. But he is a great player surrounded by great players. The fattest man in the world, on the other hand, is a good player surrounded by incompetents, so he stands out.

    Ridiculous, I know. That Jacksonville refugee is suddenly the second coming of William Perry, pathetic. The Seahawks have the best defense in the league and will go down in the top five as one of the greatest defenses of all time; Denver doesn’t come close to being in the top 10 this year! What Skip Brainless, Steven A.(Hole) Stiff, Pete Crisco and Colin 'having' a Cowheard and the rest of these Mann-sycophants don't realize is how underrated our offense can be. Russ, Marshawn, Percy, Doug, Golden, Zach, Jermaine, Luke, Mike Robb and Turbo will come out the gates swinging and stun the Denver Broncos and the rest of the non-seahawk watching country. Russ and Marshawn will run that moribund defense ragged and the WRs will be successful on their comeback routes while Russ scrambles against that weak milk toast secondary. We are taking this title.

    One man.

    Just like one man, Pey Pey, is going to defeat the Hawks. That's been the narrative and the whole foundation of their argument, they think this is tennis or something-not a team sport.

  • The coverage and analysis of Denver has gotten more and more bizarre as the pre-game period drags on.

    We'll get their best effort, but remember that this is a team that dropped a home game to a sub-.500 Chargers team near the end of the season, despite the huge altitude and noise advantages. They also had a meltdown on the road against a depleted New England team. Can you remember us having meltdown games where we ended up losing? The Bucs and Texans games comes to mind, but we recovered.

    Yet as those ugly Broncos embarrassments fade into the rear-view, the coverage on them since then has become like something out of North Korean state television. To hear some "pros" talk about it, it's going to take the planets aligning to even have a snowball in hell's chance of even competing with these guys.
