It’s Seattle, in what should be a less difficult win for them than the NFC Championship Game. Green Bay is a better team than New England, although the the Patriots are far better coached. More on that later.
Seattle is going to win the Super Bowl, because they have an elite running game, they can keep the ball away from New England’s offense and minimize their opportunities. Their defense is designed to stop high powered passing games, and they will get pressure on Tom Brady. Seattle is pretty vanilla. They win based on being physically superior to their opponents. New England doesn’t have enough top end talent to win this game. I suspect we’ll see New England struggle offensively much like they did against the Giants in 2007; Brady will get sacked a bit. The unfortunate side effect will be idiots claiming the ball inflated properly hurt New England. A lot has been made of New England’s running game. BSP strongly believes teams flow to their strengths and New England is not a running team. The genius coordinator always wants to throw.
Matchups are always key unless you have one coach to totally out scheme the other. Not going to happen here. Matchups are in favor of Seattle.
For me, even an average game catapults Russell Wilson into talk as a potential Hall-of-Famer. Despite his detractors claiming he is any one of a dozen quarterbacks who could win with Seattle’s defense, Wilson does exactly that. Let us not forget Wilson’s lack of experience; not many people seem to have a problem with Roethlisberger winning a Super Bowl early on in his career when he was clearly one of the worst players on the field. Wilson is in his third season with one Super Bowl win under his belt. For those of you into the head to head quarterback nonsense (BSP is not) , he defeated a first ballot Hall-of-Famer in that game. He gets to play another one in this Super Bowl. A win here gets the talk going.
If Seattle can hang on to their defense for 2-3 more years, they will win a third Super Bowl and become the new New England. Then ya’ll can break out the supertanker-sized haterade on Russell Wilson and the clearly defined Christian values he espouses.
Did you notice none of Green Bay’s assistants got raided after they were eliminated? That speaks volumes of how highly the rest of the league thought of that coaching job against the Seahawks. You have the better team and you lose through self-immolation.
