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

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.

Potential Super Bowl MVPs

Super Bowl MVP Trophy

I’m just going to come out and say it. I’m picking the Seattle Seahawks to win the Super Bowl on Sunday. That doesn’t mean the Denver Broncos have no chance. I’ve been wrong before in predictions and the argument for the Broncos winning Super Bowl XLVIII is a strong one. But I think the Seahawks with their top-ranked defense will prevail.

With that said, the next topic of debate is, who will be the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII? (And why do they still use Roman Numerals to count how many Super Bowls have occurred? But that’s another debate for another day.) As always, there will be front-runners but there have been surprise winners in the past. (Larry Brown, Dexter Jackson, Jake Scott to name a few.) However, this piece will focus on the favourites to become the next Super Bowl MVP. I have chosen three players from each team…

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

Why Rex Ryan Should Be AFC Coach of the Year

Rex Ryan

 

After the New York Jets beat the Miami Dolphins 20-7 to end their season, owner Woody Johnson announced that Rex Ryan would be the Jets’ head coach next year. Then, he backed that up by inking Ryan to a multi-year extension. Finally, the Jets’ make a smart move.

Yes, I understand that Ryan can be a bit of a blow-hard, but he is one of the best coaches in the NFL, and this year’s performance proves it.  Every NFL pundit from the blow-dries at ESPN to myself and Ryan Meehan on Sports Blog Movement had the Jets written of as nothing more than a runaway train crashing into a burning mound of tires, all to a Nickelback soundtrack. We’re talking  about a disaster of epic proportions.  It seemed like such an easy bet; all the signs were there.  This team was thinner on talent than an Ethiopian swimsuit model with a six-foot tapeworm, they were banking on a rookie quarterback, all of which made Ryan’s future seem as certain as hitting the trifecta at the dog track.

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.
