What has Dallas done? 140 points in the last six games. That is 23.3 points against to Seattle's 6.4.

The fact is Dallas will most likely have to play Green Bay in Green Bay in the second round.....

But keep dreaming.

I bet Green Bay, Arizona, Carolina and Denver will remember it too. Note those four are playoff bound.

Your point? That the Seahawks beat playoff bound teams? Good for them. It means nothing to the Seahawks next game.

All the awards he has over 17 years and he has only won one Superbowl ring is not what I would call a great accomplishment.
And this is why people can't stand the Seahawks and their fans... The arrogance is piled on hiiiiiigh

Most boring? Carolina vs. Cincinnati. Cam Newton vs. Andy Dalton. Ron Rivera vs. Marvin Lewis.

I think that advertisers would what a rebate on their rates.

Keep rooting for those loser while Seattle lifts the trophy and has another ring fitting. You call it arrogance, I call it pride.

To answer the question: Lions vs. Bengals.

That would be a boring Super Bowl, but for the love of GOD someone please knock of the damn Steelers! Perhaps your Ravens could pull the upset? I can't stomach seeing them in another Super Bowl!


As for Peyton Manning. Class act. I wouldn't mind a rematch of last year's Super Bowl. "Stoner Bowl II?"

Pride? Maybe. Arrogance? A little, probably. I'll propose a third and much more probable option: Inferiority.

The Super Bowl was a great game for Seahawks fans. A win, and a huge one at that, over a long-time hated franchise must have felt great. It was a great night to be a Seahawks fan. The Hawks played a great game, the Broncos showed up asleep at the wheel, and literally every break went the Hawks way. The result: the third most lopsided game in Super Bowl history.

It should have been as satisfying as it gets for a fan, wouldn't most agree? But apparently the Seahawks and their fans don't, and that was exhibited in the aftermath of the game. Never before has a Super Bowl champ berated its opponents to the shameful degree the Seahawks did all offseason. Many of their fans followed suite. This is not pride. Pride in this context denotes a sense of accomplishment. When you have a sense of accomplishment, you don't need to show such disrespect and contempt toward others.

It could have been arrogance to a certain degree. It takes some serious ego to play at the level the NFL requires. Then again, every year we have a Super Bowl champion, and most exhibit a profound amount of respect toward the teams they beat along the way to get there. The Seahawks broke that trend.

And why? I can only say insecurity and a sense of inferiority. I don't know why the players feel this way, but it's easy to see why the fans feel this way. The Super Bowl win helped the Seahawks become a 2nd tier NFL team. That's better than before, but it still does not make this otherwise insignificant franchise one of the storied powerhouses of the NFL. Even the team they beat in the Super Bowl remains a far more accomplished and storied franchise than the Seahawks. Their rivals to the south, the 49ers, have a far deeper and rich history. Even the Rams can lay claim to a higher place in NFL folklore than the Seahawks.

I think Seahawks fans know this and it bothers them. You'll never get the likes of rantiquity to admit it, but I suspect there is something to it. The noise from the Seahawks fans won't last forever, though. They may have a few more seasons of contending, but no team remains on top forever in the NFL. Seahawks fans will quiet down (just like they did this season when the Seahawks were 6-4) once their team fades from the contender's spotlight.

That's a big difference between them and real NFL fans. And it speaks loudly to the insecurity and inferiority complex many of them carry as a fanbase.
