I do!!! I do!!! I do!!!

My three favorite NFL players are Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and Richard Sherman.

I followed Wilson at Wisconsin and wanted my Buffalo Bills to draft him (dumb arses didn't because they thought he was too short! ).

Marshawn, AKA Beast Mode, was my favorite Buffalo Bills player when he was with them (dumb arses traded him for a 4th round pick! )

Richard Sherman is exactly what you want in a DB and defensive leader: hard-nosed, passionate guy who does what it takes to win.

Former Redskins LB turned radio show co-host Lavar Arrington supports the Seahawks. A few of the former players he has interviewed on his show do as well. The key thing is he is a defensive player, as are all the guests he has interviewed.

Not sure they can beat Peyton. But I'll be very happy if the 12th man gets the Lombardi. Imagine how a city that NEVER got a Lombardi will celebrate. Denver has been privileged.

I don't think this is true at all. I've seen plenty of analysts on the networks, heard plenty on the radio and read plenty on the web who are going Seahawks. The trend breaks toward the Broncos but it is not even close to a unanimous vote. I mentioned Lavar Arrington, who in his mind the game is already decided: Seahawks win and big. Every time he discusses the game he adamantly states he cannot see how this Broncos team even has a slim chance. A couple of the guests (former players) on his show have echoed his sentiments, so it's not like the Seahawks are without their supporters.

Default I support the Hawks

I'm rooting for the Hawks. I like Wilson and Sherman. This is a game where the Hawk D is going to be fresh into the 4Q after shutting down Manning for most of the game. The Bronco D will be worn out from being pounded by Lynch and Co. The Bronco D will be on the field more, and by the 4Q, won't be able to stop the Hawk's O. Manning will be in desperation mode throughout the 4Q, but it won't be enough.

Hawks, baby!

Yeah when my team is out of it I always root for teams with the fans in mind. Anyone with a heart in their chest should be hoping the Browns finally stop sucking.

That's why I went into these playoffs rooting for the Seahawks. Their fans deserve it, the Broncos have a couple of rings not that long ago.

Great defenses tend to beat great offenses in championships, especially when coupled with a punishing running game. Denver's D isn't nearly as good as Seattle's, and they're playing at sea level not in high altitude, so the Hawks aren't going to wilt late. If anybody's D wilts, it's likely to be the Broncos' because there is nothing more demoralizing to a defense than to get run on over and over again by a punishing runner like Lynch.

Moreover, Lynch is something special down in close to the goal line. I have never seen a RB who runs like he does on the opponent's side of the fifty, and especially in the red zone. It's like he won't be denied getting into the end zone even with three or four guys hanging on him. It's why he's "Beast Mode", and he's been that way going back to his college days in Cali as well as his stint in Buffalo. And when Marshawn needs a rest, Turbin comes in and runs over people.

Go, Hawks!
