    What do you think? Personally, I would never bet against Brady and the Patriots. I do like Pete Carroll and the Seahawks, but I don't think they can beat the Pats.

    The Seahawks scare me. To me, the difference will come down to the fact that the usual Patriots defensive scheme of "be paper maiche until the 20 yard line and force field goals while we score touchdowns" won't work. Seattle has too much ground power.

    Unless Seattle comes out and screws up for 55 minutes like they did against Green Bay, I'm predicting an unhappy time for Monday morning.

    In order to win, the Patriots have to come out fast and keep going. They have to force Seattle to pass the ball more than they want to because their running game is ferocious.

    People said the same thing about the Giants and they beat the Patriots in two Super Bowls. Don't underestimate the Seahawks.

    As a 49er fan, I hope the Pats put a hurting on the dirty birds :)

    I'd bet on the Seahawks as the NFL does not want the Patriots to win during deflategate. Ask the Seahawks how a few calls can ruin your whole Super Bowl.

    The thing about the Patriots and the Super Bowl...

    They won the first 3 with Brady & Belichick... they have lost the last 2. ALL the games have been close.

    There's no reason to think this will not be another close game... but the trend has been down for the Patriots rather than up.

    It's hard to repeat... but about 95% of that is getting back to the game for a second time. Most teams don't get there to even try to repeat. It's appropriate that Seattle will have to beat the last team that did repeat in order to repeat themselves.

    To me this is a "pick 'em" game. Both teams are good and well-coached. I'm not a betting man, but if I were I would hold my money tight and not put any on this game.

    You'd have to go back to the Bills in the early 90's to find a team that went to at least 2 consecutive Super Bowls and lost the 2nd one. Only two teams ever won one and then lost the next - Washington (XVII and XVIII) and Dallas (XII and XIII).

    I got a TV out of one of them. Bet big on the Giants. I'm not underestimating the Seahawks, but they did play a pretty bad game against the Packers. The Pack really deserved to win that one. I don't really care who wins, as long as it's a good game.

    I've always liked Pete Carroll. Wish the Jets had kept him.

    I was and I'd probably bet a bundle on the Pats.

    Football fans are an odd lot. Who in their right mind would remain a Jets' fan for as long as I have?

    I have to disagree, Rich. I'm a Giants fan, but was rooting for Rodgers and I don't think they deserved to win that one. I do think they should have won. There were a couple of opportunities for them to put the game out of reach, and they failed to take advantage of them.

    I think Seattle, while less talented, deserved the win for not giving up and playing hard for a full 60+ minutes.

    He pretty well f****** up USC, and left just when it was hitting the fan.
