    I've picked 9 in a row, with #10 being the Colts. What was I thinking.

    But Seattle's already won a SB with Russell...not sure how that applies.

    Still flabbergasted by that game, still think it's more about the Packers losing than the Seahawks winning.

    Don't understand how the Packers and their coaches were so fooled by that fake FG. I expected Carroll to go for it on that 4th down so I was surprised when I saw the kicker out there. Just thought a FG wasn't really doing much for Seattle's chances there...therefore, be prepared for a fake.

    End of game, 28 Seahawks - 22 Packers....As the Seahawks mantra goes this year, "It doesn't matter how you start, only how you finish". And that finish, my friend, was one for the ages.

    I'm thinking I was a bit off on my analysis re: the Colts chances vs. the Patriots.

    Based on today's games, I don't think the Seahawks will beat the Pats, but a lot can happen in two weeks (which will feel like two months). Each team has a 'beast' and tough defense, but the difference may be Brady's better short game along with the better TE (Gronkowski).

    Was just reminded that New England lineman had more TD receptions than the Chiefs WRs (0).

    Still, the Chiefs were the only team to beat the Seahawks and Patriots.

    You know that feeling you have when your team is going to the Super Bowl? I have that right now. :D

    Fun Fact for 2015: We haven't lost a real meaningful game since the 2012 post season. It's going to suck if that ever happens again. :D

    GO SEAHAWKS!

    Kurt Warner. He had that mindset. That is why I am a Cardinals fan. Love that style of playing. You get to see some amazing football with that. :D

    The Seahawks vs Packers game was a doozy but the Pats just looked too strong.
    The Hawks better bring a better game plan and execute or it'll be a long night.

    All I can say is, this Super Bowl should be one hell of a game.

    As a Packers fan, that loss yesterday was evisceral.

    So many missed opportunities and muffed chances.

    :(

    the league is looking into if the patriots deflated balls in the colts game

    there was a college coach who did this...the patriots got caught filming the jets defensive signals...the team was fines...belichick was fined...and they lost a first round draft pick

    if they find out they did that the same thing will prolly happen

    i dont know how fast they will find out if they did it or not...but if they find out before the super bowl...they should suspend the starters...thatll teach em

    Not necessarily a packers fan, but I was pulling for them.

    The second half was their downfall. Too many three and outs.

    What did you think when the packers player (Burnett?) made the INT but immediately went into the slide rather than get some yards? He easily left ten yards out there and GB had to punt soon after. I could not understand it at the time.

    Later, the two point conversion, despite being a broken play, was another example of unfocused effort. Then the onside kick .... etc, etc

    I don't know, Brad, the refs handle all of the balls during the game to keep that kind of thing from happening (stop laughing, you know what I'm saying). I think some sportswriter somewhere may just be upset that his favorite team got the smack down.

    In hindsight, Burnett sliding down wasn't the best idea, but I didn't have a problem with it at the time. That should've sealed the game if GB takes care of business even just the slightest bit from that point. I'm sure if Burnett fumbles it back while trying to gain yards many people would criticize him for being selfish.

    The onside kick blunder by Bostic, not letting Jordy field the ball, as well as whatever Clinton-Dix was doing on that 2pt conversion were more egregious mistakes.

    Play selection could have been done differently.

    You know the old joke about the only thing a "prevent defense" prevents is a win? At the time we joked about GB going into a "prevent offense." I am sure that today they would do things differently.

    That was a WTH? moment. I suppose he was concerned about fumbling the ball if tackled.

    Perhaps the biggest failing was not pinning Seatle's ears back in the first half. Two TDs rather than field goals would have made a significant difference.

    Hey, at least now I get my Sunday's back. ;)
