Correct. Seahawks lead the NFL in suspensions for performance-enhancing drug use ever since Carroll became coach in 2010. They didn't get the name SeaRoids or PEDhawks for nothing.

I am leaning towards the Patriots but wouldn't be surprised either way. Its a damn shame that deflate-gate has taken up so much attention because we have two Titans in the Super Bowl which is a rare occasion.

Look at the final scores in games Seattle has given up 100 or more yards on the ground: 20-24 (190), 23-30 (162), 17-7 (140), 28-22 (135), 31-17 (132), 13-9 (114), 26-28 (102), 21-30 (101). With the exception of the Raider & Bronco game, no other team that failed to reach the triple digits in rushing came within one score.

Eerily similar, no?
But look at the playoffs.

Seattle pretty much kept Eddie Lacy under control while the Patriots struggled against the Ravens. Maybe some of that was just a bit of rust from their two-week layoff and not having played anyone important in almost half a season - I don't know.

I think both teams have solid defense, but when you look at the line strength, the edge goes to Seattle. Wilfork's a great run stopper, and the Pats will be tougher to run on than the Broncos were last year. I think the key for the Pats will be to control Russell Wilson. If Wilson's able to mix up runs and passes successfully on third downs, that's only going to open things up for Beast Mode later in the game.

I understand why people like the Patriots in this one. They've got a lot of smart players who are well-coached. The problem I see is the same one that I saw for Denver last year. The Patriots are experienced, but so are the Seahawks and I think Seattle's a little more athletic.

This would prompt the officials to tell the opposing team they can't use their headsets until both were working, which would put the defense at a disadvantage ... Cheaters.
yeah, I have not heard this...but its pretty funny. Brilliant even

This is the first SB that I don't care who wins because I like both QB's. I have not felt this way since 1999

In baseball, cheating is almost accepted as a normal part of the game, but it's somehow wrong in other sports.

So are we to assume you never speed?

I rarely speed, and the one time I've been pulled over, I didn't whine about it.
