    That's really poor logic.

    The last time the best offense faced the best defense was Raiders v. Bucs and the best defense won.

    I don't think Manning will pull a Rich Gannon though.

    That was so long ago it was virtually a different sport.

    Broncos roll. Legion of bums will draw a dozen holding and personal foul calls.

    I think Percy harvin will play in the superbowl, and that could be very different.
    but is going to be a great game.

    Before the NFC game it was Denver +1 over any NFC. After Seattle won, it came out Denver -1. Early line movement has bet it to -1 to -2.5 depending on the book. I don't see it moving heavy one way or another unless there's a major injury between now and then.

    It's hard to pick a definite winner, what I think it boils down to is which coach has the balls to call that defining game changing play. I don't think John Fox would do that, so I choose the Seahawks to win it.

    Broncos are a lot like the Saints. Heavy passing attack, decent but not great run game, okay defense but dealing with key injuries. The Seahawks are built to stop teams like that.

    No place in Vegas had the opening line at -3 for Denver. It only sniffed -3 for four minutes at Stations Casino before it was bet down. Most places opened with either Seattle as a favorite or had the games as a pick em before the line moved to where it's at right now, which is Broncos being favored by anywhere from 1 to 2.5 points:

    At least we can take pride in the fact that the Texans throughly dominated the Seahawks earlier this year until Matt Schaub decided he was going to lose the game for us.

    The game isn't being played in Seattle...and I think Denver is the better team. I think Broncos win.

    What Seattle has shown throughout this reemergence is that it can beat any team any where at any time. At home they are basically unbeatable, but on the road their offense struggles a bit more. Come game time, this game is gonna be a pick em or slightly favoring Seattle...Not a single vegas book will give 3 points to either team unless a major injury is yet to come.
