I can't imagine the Pats dropping a THIRD SB ... So I said Pats by 8+.

Brady is getting OLD .... this is probably his last SB (as much as it pains me to say it).

Brady’s short-term goal, obviously, is to beat the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl. His broader game plan involves becoming a kind of lifestyle pioneer in redefining how long a 37-year-old veteran can hold off his twilight. In effect, Brady is bent on nothing less than subverting the standard expectations of how long a superstar quarterback can play like one.

unclemick you're part of a new city. Remember week four, here in our fine stadium.

My thoughts are the same as yours. No matter who wins I hope it's a good game.

I'm going with the Browns by 7 points. They will win the super bowl at some time, just have no idea of the year.

Surely, an NFL referee who handles the football on every down would notice that football is overinflated.

I wonder if there was ever an independent study done to verify that under-inflated footballs are more accurate when thrown, or easily caught, etc vs normally inflated ones. And if so, in what weather conditions those tests took into account?

As someone who has enjoyed chucking a football (both NFL and CFL versions) around for the past 25 years, I can tell you that a slightly deflated football is both easier to catch and throw - just the ability to decompress the ball a bit with the fingers allows for quite a bit more control. When my buddies and I throw the ball around now (I used to be able to throw it 55 yards, maybe 45 now ) we always have it slightly deflated, Patriots style.

Anyway, back on topic...seems that both the experts and the public expect a real close game. I agree, could be a classic.

Thanks, now that the statistical analysis is verified , I'll go with the Pats by 8.

Seahawks Will Win!

I've been following closely all that's going on in all media about the Seahawks these past couple of weeks. The guys look, sound and act so loose and confident.

As I said, in part, over a week ago in the 2014 NFL Season thread: "Tom Brady may be the last remaining elite QB and the Seahawks' toughest challenge to date. Should be another great, entertaining game the Hawks give."

But my Hawks will win, by at least one point, which is all it takes. Go Hawks!

Okay. The audience says:

Patriots - 38%

Seahawks - 41%

Commercials and/or Halftime - 12%

Other - 9%

Pretty much 50/50 between those choosing the Pats vs Seahawks and also most picked a close game.

Let's hope the game is that competitive and the half time show isn't the highlight (nothing against Katy Perry) like last year.

Thanks for participating

Last I heard, Vegas odds makers have it Pats by 1 point.
