Im not sold on the Broncos secondary and Percy Harvin will play in the S.B.

Can the Hawks score 30 to win? We'll see. Denver has repeatedly. Denver shut down a RB that was supposed to score at will. Five attempts for six yard. HA

Not only that, but they can shift into "ball control" and eat up TOP like they have in the playoffs. This results in lower scoring, but it also results in fewer scoring opportunities for the opponent. In the AFCCG the Broncos had two drives of 7+ minutes. Scoring drives. The Seahawks may be able to take away the big play, but the Broncos have shown they are perfectly willing to go slow and chew up game time by taking what the defense gives them.

I don't think the Hawks have to score 30 to win......with the weather and the defense, I don't see the Broncos scoring more than 20.

The Seahawks defense have shut down everybody.....we will see if the Broncos defense can shut down both Lynch and Wilson's mobility and Percy Harvin......we shall see!

yeah because the Seahawks have the same defense and the same secondary as the depleted Pats .

I guess the Broncos have NO CHANCE then, do they? None at all. Just wrap up the Lombardi and ship it to Seattle now and save both teams the plane ride, right?

did I say that? .........whoever the Broncos played in the playoffs so far throw out the window. Chargers and Pats have depleted defenses and one of the worst secondaries in the NFL.

the only chance the Broncos have in that weather is if Moreno can run the ball on this Hawks defense and not making it 3rd and long....Gore got shut down and unless Manning can run himself for 100 yards, I see a very rough day for him if Moreno gets shut down.

Add the Broncos to that, but instead of making excuses they made plays. And if you're right about the Seahawks being able to put the skids on the Broncos offense (and that is a big if), we may have ourselves a very low scoring game as the Broncos defense has been nearly as good as the Seahawks over the past 4 games, and the Seahawks offense is not as potent as either the Chargers or Patriots. If the injury depleted Broncos defense can bottle up the Chargers and Patriots, it is reasonable to believe they can do it to the Seahawks.

One thing that I think Seattle D needs to work on is the no-huddle passing shotgun. SF very nearly won the game (or tied at very least) in the final drive with a series of no-huddle plays.

What does Denver specialize in? You guessed it - no-huddle plays. If Seattle can't adapt to that, I expect it to be a blowout against the Seahawks.

Seahawks defense doesn't have to be high scoring, they rely on the Defense and the run game. Seahawks offense scored 26 and 23 points on the Saints and 49ers defenses and without their best receiver Percy Harvin, who will play in the S.B.


Those 2 defenses are better than the Broncos defense or you on record here stating that the Broncos defense is in the same league as the 49ers and Saints?
