What the Seahawks World Championship Means to Me

Your Seattle Seahawks are the champions of the world. No seriously, they have this fancy (and shiny) metal trophy to show for it. Watching Paul Allen host the Lombardi Trophy was stunning, unbelievable, and absolutely amazing.

There isn’t any way words can describe how much this victory means to the City of Seattle, after everything that’s happened (sports wise) to it in just the last five years…the Hawks go out there and flat-out dominated the Denver Broncos. Please enjoy this .gif of Blitz while you are letting that sink in:

SBM Exclusive: Sports Doppelgangers, Volume 54 – The Super Bowl XLVIII Edition

Super Sunday is full of look-alikes. Here’s just a few of what we think are the best.

Ironically the smallest amount of resemblance belong to the largest men on this list, as in Broncos offensive lineman Zane Beadles, who really could be the reincarnation of the late funnyman John Candy.

Then, there’s Seahawks corner back Richard Sherman and rapper Busta Rhymes, who both specialize in making a lot of noise.

Even the quarterbacks are in on the look-alike action, as in Seattle signal-caller Russell Wilson and star of the HBO series “The Wire” Tristan Wilds.

Then, there’s 5-time MVP Peyton Manning, who bears an eerie resemblance to the 1953 American League MVP, Cleveland Indians’ slugger Al Rosen.

Three Things I Want to See from the Seahawks on Super Bowl Sunday

For the cities of Seattle and Denver, the anticipation has been gradually building over the last two weeks. The 12th Man sent the Seahawks to New York in style — they lined the streets from the Hawks’ training facility to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport — while a couple hundred Bronco fans showed up at the Bronco’s training facility to send the Broncos off:

This is one of those years where the two best teams in the league are actually meeting in the Super Bowl; and I honestly can’t be more thrilled…or terrified. The reason I’m thrilled and terrified for this game is because the Seahawks are one of those two teams.’ Continue reading

Why You Shouldn’t Cheer For: The Seattle Seahawks

statler and waldorf

By J-Dub and Meehan

As part of Sports Blog Movement’s Super Bowl coverage, we are taking a page from J-Dubs own blog Dubsism. There, he made it a point to depart from the usual Super Bowl bluster; we aren’t here to tell you a bunch of shit about who’s going to win, why there going to win, and we sure as shit aren’t getting into those godawful “human interest” story about some third-string linebacker whose kid has a disease you never heard of.

This year, J-Dub is teaming up with SBM Managing Editor Ryan Meehan, whose dyspeptic rants make for the perfect complement to  J-Dubs’ “crabby old man” bullshit. As far as the Super Bowl is concerned, this means SBM will be taking the Dubsism bit about telling you why you shouldn’t cheer for either contestant, and giving it the twist only SBM can give you.

Having said that, here’s why you shouldn’t cheer for the Seattle Seahawks.

The Extremely Cliche Super Bowl XLVIII Preview

It’s Super Bowl week, and the football fans in Seattle and Denver are really starting to get excited about their favorite team’s chances at winning the Lombardi Trophy. This game is incredibly important for both franchises, as each team looks to take advantage of their respective championship windows. In this post, we will discuss what to look for in this game and what each team must do to win all of the marbles.

The No. 1 offense versus the No. 1 defense

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have been putting up points by the bunches — in fact, the Broncos are scoring an average of 37.9 points per game. The reason that the Broncos were able to score so much was because of the prolific passing season that Peyton Manning put up during the regular season: he had a completion of percentage of 68.3%, a passer rating of 115.1, and averaged 12.2 yard per completion.

Meanwhile the Seahawks’ defense has been exceptional at stopping the pass throughout the regular season. This defense has one of the best secondaries in the last decade. In fact, the Hawks only allowed 5.8 yards per pass during the regular season; that’s really impressive because of the new rules that make it almost impossible for defenders to do their jobs. Of course, there is this pervasive idea out there that the Hawks won’t be able to stop Peyton Manning and his quick release.

Peyton Manning’s quick release will beat the Hawks’ pass rush

Some Rambling Thoughts on the Seahawks Being in the Super Bowl

The Seattle Seahawks are making the franchise’s second ever appearance in the Super Bowl — the first was in Super Bowl XL back in 2006. Let’s all take a moment to let that sink in, because that’s just incredible to think about. After all the crap the sport’s gods have thrown at the state of Washington over the last decade (no the Kings staying in Sacramento doesn’t count, at least not on here), the City of Seattle is getting something nice.

The first part of that something nice is the fact that the Hawks was the hoisting of the NFC Championship trophy on the turf last Sunday; the second part is participating in the Super Bowl; and there is a possible third part…that would be the chocolate syrup on top of the cherry.

Being Reasonable About the Super Bowl Halftime Entertainment‏

brunomars

Earlier on this season, when the NFL announced that this year halftime entertainment would be R&B singer Bruno Mars (and his backup band the Hooligans) I expressed my displeasure with the selection of music that would head up what is easily the most overrated fourteen minutes annually in America.

And although I usually do not do this, I have to backpedal.  Well, sort of… Continue reading

INEXCUSABLE

Above:  Something that shouldn't have happened

Above: Something that shouldn’t have happened

by Ryan Meehan

I don’t know a goddamned thing about electricity.  I couldn’t tell you how a circuit breaker worked if you had my balls in a trash compactor a second before it was about to be turned on.  The world of electricity remains a mystery to me and it probably always will.  So I’m going to sound like a major prick criticizing something that I know nothing about.  Continue reading

Black (and purple) Monday

I watched my first football game when I was 8. It was Superbowl XIV in January of 1980, Steelers vs. Rams. It was the last of the great Steel Curtain dynasty but was the first in what became a lifelong obsession with football.

Until yesterday.

I made my feelings clear about the game last week, and I had resigned myself to not watching. But I caved. For context, here is my Sunday:

10am- Wake up. I was up till 3am Saturday night playing NHL13, beyond that it’s freaking Sunday. I sleep in.

10- 12:30- Make breakfast, and generally be lazy. I intentionally avoid any channel that might make any reference to the game. But its still there in the back of my head…Why would Ben soft toss that out route? He has to know late in the game the DB is sitting on it…Why can’t someone teach Mendy to use two hands…God Wallace sucks…This team lost to Charlie Batch, CHARLIE BATCH!….8 turnovers…Picked apart by Carson Palmer..
