Sorry I cross posted.
I agree don't understand the slide, looked like there were some open yards ahead of him.

The onside kick, wow don't understand the miss. Of course there were a few plays were the ball did what a football was meant to do.

Seattle really came back big time. While I'm a closet GB fan, Seattle took that game in what appeared to be a fair and square way.

Maybe next year or two Bears fans can be BIRGers. Hope springs eternal.

You mean New England! Patriots offense is looking like a well oiled machine today and the defense is playing stout.

Wow, GB let that one get away from them, but Seattle showed a lot of grit/heart to keep fighting for the win. They earned the win.

Looks like the Pats will win as well, thought the Colts would do better.

I hope the Pats can pull off a SB win, it's been way too long since their last SB. But I have to believe the Seahawks will be favored.

Looks like Luck and the Colts just can't figure out how to play the Pats.

It's a good thing I don't bet, or I'd actually start believing my predictions

Given how the Seahawks played today and luckily squeaked by GB and how the Pats are totally dominating a solid Colts team, I find it hard to believe that the Seahawks would be favored.

Maybe. Any one of these teams can win. But Seattle showed some serious ability to not give up. That's not to be underestimated. I'll admit, I gave up before they did and fortunately, they proved me wrong.

The reality is: the team with the best game that day will win.

I'm rooting for the Seahawks. But even after watching the game today, I wouldn't have been disappointed if the Packers won. They were playing a better game for most of the game. Unfortunately for them, they gave it up at the end and Seattle was able to take advantage. Hats off to the Seahawks for not giving up.

As of tonight. The line has Seahawks favored over Pats by 2.5

In the Super Bowl strong defensive teams tend to have an advantage. Last year the Broncos I recall were heavily favored as they dominated the Patriots and the Seahawks squeaked by the 49ers, but the Seahawks defense shut them down. Also, the Patriots lost their last 2 Super Bowl appearances to Giants teams with strong defenses.

The line is a PICK

If the Seahawks play the way they did yesterday the PATS will win.

Total domination by the PATS. Andrew Luck is the QB of the future but he is not ready for prime time yet.

GO PATS

Didn't both teams use the same set of balls?

One would think. Additionally, this wouldn't matter in the running game anyway.
