Yesterday, Wilson proved once again he is unbelievably good. After 4 interceptions and everything else going wrong, he never gave up and made huge plays at the end of the game for the win. This is what matters.

Wilson won a superbowl in his second year and has another chance this year. Kyle Orton hasn't done any of that. Moreover, Rodgers has only been to one superbowl so far.

Seahawks were 3-3 in week 7 which means they are 11-1 in the last 12 games. 8 of these 11 wins are by double digits...

Brady, Rodgers, Brees, and a healthy P Manning are the elite QB's. No, I do not put Wilson at this level yet. Will he get there, he may, just not yet

I've tried using the same logical argument but to no avail. Good example with Marino, Kelly and to a lesser extent Fouts.

Agreed. And if the Pats were playing for anything in week 16, they'd be 13-1. Both are hot.

There are special guests for your enjoyment - Eli Manning will read two poems about his victories; Peyton Manning will have his record books to sign along with his best QB ever posters; Eric Mangini will read his Shakespearean account of his whistle blowing speech to the league and will have Spy Gate memorabilia for sale; and Tom and Gisele will stop by for photo ops. We asked Bill Belichick to come along but he was still riding the On To Seattle bus and is unavailable.

I don't like the Pats, but that post above is hilarious....lotta hate on this board that just popped up.

Oh, switching gears, the game opened w/the Seahawks as a 2.5 point favorite, but now its a pick'em....that's probably where it should be...very evenly matched these teams are..

I think a lot of it is going to come down to how badly Richard Sherman is hurt. If Seattle's secondary is banged up, it makes a huge difference.

Richard Sherman is fine. Nothing serious.

I think you're right, and Earl Thomas has a shoulder separation so it's unlikely he'll be 100% either. That could bode well for the Pats.
