Demaryius Thomas hopes Richard Sherman is covering him

demaryius AP

Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas wants to challenge himself against the best, and that means he hopes Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman covers him in the Super Bowl.

Thomas told reporters that he doesn’t know how the Seahawks’ secondary will cover the Broncos’ receivers, but if Seattle puts Sherman on him, Thomas would take that as a compliment.

“He’s a great player. I’d love to have that matchup and show what kind of player I am. I don’t know if we’ll match up, but like I said, he’s a great player,” Thomas said.

If Sherman is on Thomas, that likely means Thomas won’t get many passes thrown his way: Peyton Manning loves to look for mismatches in the opposing secondary, and when you’re playing Seattle, looking for a mismatch means looking away from Sherman. But whatever happens, Thomas thinks it’s going to be fun.

“They’ve got a great defense and we’ve got a great offense,” Thomas said. “This is what you play for.”

And that’s what we watch for.

    i hope so too. could be a matchup for the ages

  2. FlashPatterson says: Jan 25, 2014 3:47 PM

    Not like it matters, the Broncos have 4 top-notch threats at receiver/TE and Moreno is dangerous out of the backfield. Manning is gonna get his points no matter how good the Seahawks D is. Wilson has to win this one for them.

  3. gosuck1 says: Jan 25, 2014 3:47 PM

    Seahawks’ fan, but I like his statement.

  4. dfwhawkguy says: Jan 25, 2014 3:48 PM

    And then no one ever heard Demaryius Thomas’ name until the 2014 regular season.

  5. siknutty says: Jan 25, 2014 3:50 PM

    It doesnt matter who Sherman is covering since there will still be three other very talented receivers that Seattle has to account for. Drew Brees threw for 300 yards against seattle in the divisional round, and the saints dont have the amount and quality of playmakers on offense that Denver does.

    Either way Denver’s receivers better come ready to play a very physical football game, mainly D Thomas and Decker.

  6. bert1913 says: Jan 25, 2014 3:51 PM

    Depends on which side demaryius lines up on,. Richard has his side and maxwell has the other side.

  7. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Jan 25, 2014 3:51 PM

    Why did *this* Super Bowl have to be slated to play in a “polar vortex”???

    If there ever was a game where one sought a legitimate resolution of what happens when an irresistible force(DEN) encounters an immovable object (SEA) – what happens? This would be it.

    Unfortunately, the powers-that-be thought it’d be a great idea to play the game in Fairbanks, Alaska.

    Didn’t Pete Rozelle *wisely* resolve this nearly a half century ago following the “Ice Bowl” – when he insisted he would *never* play an NFL Championship Game (now the Super Bowl) on an outdoor field in a cold weather city.

    This is yet another WFT move by Goodell. Thanks Rodge for contaminating the Super Bowl.

  8. bennyb82 says: Jan 25, 2014 3:52 PM

    If they are matched up, Peyton will still throw Thomas those short passes. Then the matchup will become more about whether Sherman can tackle Thomas.

  9. thepftpoet says: Jan 25, 2014 3:56 PM

    Richard Sherman is the most overrated CB in the NFL.

    He plays press man coverage the whole game with the best safeties in the NFL behind him.

    My grandma could look good covering Recievers like that.

  10. mrheavyhustle says: Jan 25, 2014 3:59 PM

    I like this matchup, shows how good Sherman really is. D.Thomas is bigger than he is. Not saying Crabtree and Boldin were small Receivers but height wise, Sherman has them beat. I seen Revis control his Island against the best in the game on the regular. Revis and Sherman are a toss up for best corner in game to me still.

  11. remyje says: Jan 25, 2014 4:02 PM

    “And then no one ever heard Demaryius Thomas’ name until the 2014 regular season.”

    Did you just become a football/seahawks fan this year???

  12. rectumdamnnearkilledem says: Jan 25, 2014 4:03 PM

    I hope Denver puts up 600 yards passing against Seattle so we don’t have to listen to Richard Sherman all offseason. Sick of hearing about him already. So many better stories to cover for this Super Bowl.

  13. IbelieveinSantaClaus says: Jan 25, 2014 4:03 PM

    If I were him I would worry more about Chancellor hitting me than Sherman. It’s going to be interesting to see how those receivers will take the hits.

  14. gloryfromheaven46 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:03 PM

    Lol I remember when Manning came to Denver and everyone was saying that he doesn’t have any receivers… I wonder where those people are at now?

  15. rj88888 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:04 PM

    I heard Tebow to Thomas when Denver beat the Steelers in the playoffs a couple of years ago.

    And nobody will ever know your name.

  17. iceburgskin202 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:09 PM

    I like it this matchup looks great on paper hope it translates into a great game.

  18. unbridledsexy says: Jan 25, 2014 4:11 PM

    IMO the Niners offense, aside from Kap, is pound for pound better then the Donkeys. I’m not worried about Seattle’s D matching up with the receivers, it’s that laser pointer named Manning that’s the difference maker. We were able to get to Kap and make him run, but can we get to manning before the ball gets out, that’s were the game is gonna be played I believe.

    Sorry your tv must have been broken in the play off game against the Steelers 2 years ago….when he ran for the game winning TD. DT=stud

  21. micnealy says: Jan 25, 2014 4:12 PM

    Seattle fan great comments that’s what I like to hear good luck to both teams.

  22. scoobies05 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:14 PM

    if you havent heard of demariyus thomas before this season, then you must not be much of a football fan. ask any steeler fan who he is…they can tell you

  23. osiris33 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:16 PM

    The Seahawks have 6-7 good cover guys. There won’t be anybody open most of the time, unless there are some coverage breakdowns. This will force Manning and his weak arm to throw into coverage and tight windows.

    He will get picked. At least 3 times.

  24. metrocritical says: Jan 25, 2014 4:17 PM

    With the Super Bowl drawing near, let’s hope that that the over the top R. Sherman defenders and haters let the story of his bad behavior disappear so that the focus can be where it belongs, on football. On the remarkable assemblage of talented players and the matchups. This could be a great game if we can just wade through a week more of hype and nonsense.

  25. khmerson562 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:20 PM

    Denver drafted Thomas over Dez Bryant. Dez is better than Thomas

  26. bornayankee says: Jan 25, 2014 4:23 PM

    Be careful what you wish for. I like that he wants to be challenged, but will Peyton want to challenge Sherman? I look forward to the match up.

  27. humpty20 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:24 PM

    never heard of him until 2014 regular season, nice, except the 2014 regular season hasnt begun yet. and if you havent heard of him, you got your head up ur arse, 1400+ in last 2 season and double digit tds, yeah, you make sense.

    doesnt matter who covers D.Thomas, the donkeys are loaded at wr. seattle just needs to press those fools and load up the 15 yrd box, and choke manning with 4 in the pocket.

    great match up.

  28. dino2997 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:28 PM

    Sherman wins that matchup not necessarily because he is hands down better than Thomas but because Manning will not take any chances on a game changing turnover.

  29. dukeearl says: Jan 25, 2014 4:28 PM

    Game will be decided at the scrimmage line. If Seattle is able to get to Manning, he will start trying to rush things.
    If Seattle is not able to get pressure on Manning it will be a very long day for Seattle.

  30. polegojim says: Jan 25, 2014 4:29 PM

    Excellent match-up…

    Bronco’s fan here… I appreciate mutual respect beforehand… and then leaving it on the field.

    Thomas V Sherman will be awesome.

  31. sportsriffblog says: Jan 25, 2014 4:30 PM

    I haven’t been this excited for a super bowl in awhile. Can’t wait to watch!

    The only thing he needs to cover is his mouth.

  33. denverfandownsouth says: Jan 25, 2014 4:35 PM

    Yeah that guy who had the 80 yard overtime catch in the playoffs from Tim Tebow? Never heard of him

  34. allidoiswin55 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:37 PM

    Flash Patterson .. Seattle has 3 all pros and another additional cbs who graded out along the leagues best. As good as Denver’s wideouts and TE are they are not more talented than Seattle just bigger names ..

    I believe Denver moves the ball but It’s incredibly hard to score on Seattle and that’s two straight seasons they’ve proven this all the while developing talent at the position ..

  35. scalfor3 says: Jan 25, 2014 4:37 PM

    —————-

    One has nothing to do with the other. Saints’ scheme is different, and they don’t rush the football as effectively as Denver does.

    Nice to point out 300 yards, as nearly half of them came on the final two drives. Given that it will be a cold wintry mix here next week, doubtful Manning — who doesn’t have Brees’ arm strength at this point — is going to be able to replicate the rather empty numbers that Brees put up two weeks ago.

    the best DB vs. WR matchup i have ever seen was Deion Sanders(DAL) covering Jerry Rice(SF). The 2nd best was Deion Sanders(SF) covering Michael Irvin(DAL)

  40. keepingitrealdumb says: Jan 25, 2014 5:11 PM

    this game reminds me of the NYG vs. NE one. in that game the only reason NYG won is because their pass rushers were able to get to Brady.

    same with this game .. SEA pass rushers need to get to Manning .. if they do .. SEA wins .. if not, DEN wins.

    all comes down to SEA DLine vs. DEN OLine.

  41. thetruthcampaign says: Jan 25, 2014 5:16 PM

    Because Welker will get to get a good shot in at Sherman on a pick if he is.

  42. liddogg33 says: Jan 25, 2014 5:17 PM

    DIE HARD SEATTLE FAN HERE.. Absolutely LOVE this guys comments!! LOVE HIM as a player too.. Cant wait to watch this game.. I leave on Thursday to root on my HAWKS!!! Great matchup between Manning (best ever) and our secondary!!! Looking forward to a GREAT GAME….

    Hawks 35
    Denver 21

    GO HAWKS!!!

  43. tim8450 says: Jan 25, 2014 5:23 PM

    Sure, then Welker picks Sherman off at the knees, Thomas drops the ball, but Denver wins in a route and Sherman’s Superbowl ends in the first quarter.

  45. qdog112 says: Jan 25, 2014 5:30 PM

    Peyton plays the geometric angles. His arm is not the strongest, so he throws screens, short routes to Welker, J. Thomas and the backs. If you watch his downfield throws, they are on acute angles and are designed that way to avoid ints.

    If his ball is in the air a fraction too long, he will get 4 ints and look more like Eli than himself. Throwing a flutter ball against Seattle is death.

    Any pick play will cost Denver a WR and maybe a penalty and fine against the Hawks. Expect the Denver RBs to get a workout and short passes the order of the day.

    PREDICTION: Peyton will get a screen pass to Demaryius intercepted.

    Brees had 34 yards at half time. Most of those yards came in garbage time.

    Glad to give up 300 to Manning in garbage time.

    “Broncos put up 40 or 50 points on their vaunted defense”….did I read that correctly?! You don’t actually believe that there is even a remote possibility of this happening do you?! And I thought Niner fans were delusional.

  49. jbeagles23 says: Jan 25, 2014 5:38 PM

    Two terrible comments on this board. One is a Seahawks fan who doesn’t know who Thomas is. Other is that San Fran pound for pound is better offensively than Denver. The front running hawks fans are showing their true colors

  50. scrotiemcb says: Jan 25, 2014 5:40 PM

    Good. I initially thought DT was getting a little case of Seattlitis and running his mouth.

    I like my Broncos quiet and humble. The anti-Seattle– or better stated, the team full of leaders and pros too consumed with taking care of business to care about the spotlight.

  51. deezysham says: Jan 25, 2014 5:43 PM

    Sherman over rated his safties save him are you nuts must not watch many seahawk games like the last play agianst the niners he is always on a island with the best reciever. No saftey help how you think earl thomas have 109 tackles he is playing middle of the field and sherman is locked man up. I know its popular to hate on sherman but making dumb comments like that you should not be watching football

  52. Mr. Wright 212 says: Jan 25, 2014 5:48 PM

    Gotta love the guys who are calling people who are actually looking at match ups “front running Seahawks fans”, when those same guys are only hoping Denver wins so that they can taunt Sherman. What a pathetic society we have woven.

    Only reason? hahaha another one of THOSE, huh? They don’t even need to get to Manning much, they are that great in coverage. You’ll see, since you obviously haven’t been watching these boys work the past 2-3 years.

  54. ravenswhat says: Jan 25, 2014 5:54 PM

    Demaryius is a top 5 WR but Sherman is THE top CB.

    So what was the excuse when you guys dropped one to the Texans and almost another one to Tampa Bay? This is not your year Seattle..

  60. allidoiswin55 says: Jan 25, 2014 6:18 PM

    The Seahawks didn’t kick one to the texans and they fell behind against the bucs because Seattle in the first quarter had 2-3 turnovers in their own side of the field giving TB the ball already close to goal line in the red zone .. Basically handing them 14 PTs and the other ptsncame off a 50+ yard penalty ..

    Please don’t use game points to
    Try and justify if a team struggled . The Seahawks gifted them the lead like you were gifted a lead in NE sometimes stuff happens

  61. orangecrush823 says: Jan 25, 2014 6:18 PM

    5 of the Seattle wins this year were by an average of 4-1/2 points… This team is a Jekyll and Hyde team.. Denver 31, Seattle 17

  62. shadeforourbattle says: Jan 25, 2014 6:20 PM

    In the regular season game vs. the Patriots when the Broncos lost 31-34, Demaryius Thomas was matched up on Aquib Talib for basically the entire game and he had 4 catches for 41 yards. In the playoff game against the Patriots, Demaryius Thomas had 1 catch for 29 yards with 13:36 seconds remaining in the 2nd quarter when Aquib Talib went down and left the game with an injury. The other 6 catches and 105 yards Demaryius Thomas had in that playoff game were done with a much lesser cornerback who was 5’10” on him and Peyton Manning wisely picked on that mismatch. That means in 5 quarters of play against a very physical Pro Bowl shut down corner Demaryius Thomas had 5 catches for 70 yards. This tells us Demaryius Thomas does not fair well against physical corners and that Peyton Manning in 75 minutes of play against physical Pro Bowl shut down corners only threw to him 5 times. You are what your tape shows you to be, and the tape so far on Demaryius Thomas vs. Physical Shut Down Corners is not good. Barring an injury to Sherman similar to the one that Talib suffered in the AFC Championship Game happening to Sherman in the Superbowl, this matchup favors the Seahawks.

  63. brooklyn40niner says: Jan 25, 2014 6:23 PM

    49er fan here. I’m still bewildered at the fact that Harbaugh drafted Chris Culliver over his Stanford player Sherman. He is Waaaaay better than Cully obviously.

    Also, Cully was a huge distraction last year during SB week with his comment on gays. It definitely affected his play as he was torched by Jacoby Jones.

    *******************************************

    I believe what he was saying is that after making that comment about wanting to be matched up against Sherman, nobody will hear his name during the Superbowl because he will be shut down. Hence the “nobody will hear his name til next year” deal.

    I really think weather will be a factor here. It’s been beaten to death, but the colder it is the harder it will be for Manning to keep his passes accurate. Cold hands plus nerve damage causing weaker arm and grip, I have had the same type of surgery on my neck as Peyton twice and never fully recovered. Look for running game and short passes/ screen game.

  65. johnnyprc says: Jan 25, 2014 6:26 PM

    People may have a lot of words to describe Sherman – but the ONE thing most agree you can’t call him overrated. Like him or hate him, he is the best by a LONG way.

    Seriousl people. Be smart. Why not have another receiver Maxwell line up on him. Demarius wouldn’t be ready for that. Decker needs to take the day off with Sherman locking him down . Wright and Irvin cover welker. Length in speed with earl Thomas over the top. Remember who told u first. Lol

    I hope this the matchup and hope its competitive , as far as comparing what Thomas did against Talib back in the regular season is stupid denver didn’t throw the ball much all due to the heavy wind and the huge leak in pats run d

    Demaryius Thomas vs Richard Sherman? Who would cover Decker then?
    ————–

    Seattle plays a base. They don’t disguise, they don’t move. Sherman plays left. Maxwell plays right. Thomas free. Chancellor strong. They play match up with the OLBs and safeties with the TEs in coverage, and provide run support with both OLBs and the Mike (Wagner), along with both safeties. They aren’t thinking as much as players would in a complicated scheme, which allows them to play faster and react quickly when diagnosing plays.

    In other words, Denver moves their receivers around all game, so there won’t be any exclusive matchups. When Thomas is right, he is up against Sherman, Decker is left on Maxwell. Malcolm Smith and KJ Wright will take Julius Thomas, and when they move away from that match up on the back end, Wagner will go with Julius at times.

    Welker will be blanketed by Jeremy Lane and Walter Thurmond. Bruce Irvin is a joker in this scheme, because he can rush the edge, provide run support, and is as fast as every single Denver receiver.

    Anyone who says Denver has too many weapons either a) clearly doesn’t know football at all, b) hasn’t watched Seattle, c) is hating and is hoping Denver wins to assuage their warped vendetta with Sherman.

  72. elgranderojo79 says: Jan 25, 2014 6:59 PM

    It’s really up to Denver if Sherman is on Thomas. Seattle doesn’t play this is your man D. Their corners have a side which allows them to excel in one spot. Some might consider this a weakness, but Byron maxwell is playing lights out opposite Sherman right now. He is so much better than browner it isn’t even funny. I would even contend that the reason seattle isn’t flagged nearly as often for pi and holding is because browner is gone. Sherman does get a little grabby, but generally just plays really solid coverage. Browner was a penalty waiting to happen.

  73. njsteeler says: Jan 25, 2014 7:08 PM

    Great match up of offense vs defense. The question for me is how does that # 1 offense deals with the conditions against that # 1 defense? We all know that Beastmode, and that offense is built for these conditions. I’m not so sure about #18, and the Broncos.

  74. stagedoorjohnny says: Jan 25, 2014 7:15 PM

    Sherman versus Thomas (Demaryius) or Julius or any other odd Thomas.
    Can you say mismatch. Another big boy bites the dust.
    Just ask the Saints’ Jimmy Graham or the Falcons’ Tony Gonzalez.
    Next.

  75. denverwally says: Jan 25, 2014 7:33 PM

    That’s big talk by Thomas when he knows beforehand that Seattle doesn’t play the matchup game. Also, D. Thomas was totally shut down by Aqib Talib in two games until Denver wisely had Welker take Talib out of the game. So its not such a feat for a top notch CB to shut down Thomas.
    Here’s a fan of neither team rooting for Seattle.

  76. bospat says: Jan 25, 2014 7:38 PM

    Thomas is well spoken despite not going to Stanford

  77. frostymugobeer says: Jan 25, 2014 8:14 PM

    Thomas is a very humble and very good young receiver.
    He did nothing but compliment Sherman….people try and drum up drama where there is none.
    I will tell you this, Seattle will have their hands full trying to stop the Broncos.
    there is a reason Manning has 3 times as many TD’s as Wilson over the past 2 seasons….and Denvers rushing attack is just as strong as seattles.
    Trust me Seattle will need their best game of the year on both sides of the ball to get their first championship!

    Are you guys are telling me that the chargers defense it’s better then Seahawks under 30 three times they stop the donkeys

  79. patsfan1820 says: Jan 25, 2014 8:24 PM

    Well Mr.Wright I hate both teams so there’s danger of me being biased towards either of them. I just hope the game doesn’t get moved or the refs call a fair game.

    OMG – is someone actually parroting that crap?

    ROFL!

  81. shadeforourbattle says: Jan 25, 2014 8:29 PM

    Here is one question for all of the Denver supporters: Who’s front defensive seven is better, Denver’s or San Fran’s? If you don’t pick the 49er’s then you have a major bias. Marshawn Lynch ran for over 100 yards as the Seattle OL won the battle in the trenches against the amazing front seven of the 49er’s. If Denver’s defensive seven can’t do better than that, then Peyton will be on the sideline, and that is the best defense against a high powered offense.

    The guy who made the point of New Orleans passing for 300 yards against the Seattle defense didn’t watch the game….the Saints got their only passing TD with 34 seconds in the game with the Seahawks up big…and the Saints also got about 100.of those yards to
    .. they were almost stopped completely
    .

    Funny watching old NFL SBs.

    Half the hits and TOs would have been flagged or reversed.

  87. lundergaard says: Jan 25, 2014 9:44 PM

    Richard and the Cheathawks will need to use all the performance enhancing avenues known to man to get the edge…….Denver is more worthy and there are no questions surrounding how they made it this far. Seattle has a very questionable history in terms of cheating….and I am a fan of neither team.

  88. winninaintsinnin says: Jan 25, 2014 9:46 PM

    Fairly early the Denver receivers will grow alligator arms and Manning will hurry.

    Seriously don’t think it will be that close.

    Double digit Hawk win with 3+ turn overs.

  89. infa111ous says: Jan 25, 2014 9:47 PM

    I think Denver wins a close game. Seattle will not have its 12th man to help them or the Clink. Seattle is overrated sorry if that offends you yes they made it to the Superbowl and you can thank home field advantage for that otherwise it would be a differnt atory. Superbowl both teams are road teams and I like Manning a lot better than Wilson. It will come down to the quarterbacks making plays. The only variable here is how bad the weather will be. Anyways that is my 2 cents. Thank you.

    Just looked at the final regular season power rankings from ESPN.

    1. Seattle
    2. Denver
    3. Carolina
    4. San Francisco
    5. New England
    6. New Orleans

    What really stands out is that Seattle is 5-1 against the top six teams in the NFL (1-0 v. Carolina, 2-1 v. SF, and 2-0 v. NO) while Denver is just 1-1 against NE.
    Just like Sherman against D. Thomas, and just like Sherman against T. Gonzalez, and just like Sherman against J. Graham this game will be a mismatch.
    Seattle by double digits.

  93. winninaintsinnin says: Jan 25, 2014 10:52 PM

    Let’s face it, Denver only hope are the refs.

  94. damnskins703 says: Jan 25, 2014 11:57 PM

    Seattle has the best secondary in the league, Peyton has never went up against a secondary like this, this year. Seattle will win because Manning and the Broncos will have to run the ball and that is something they cannot do well, throwing the ball against Seattle will not win this game for Denver sorry Seattle 34-27

  95. majormeatcurtains says: Jan 26, 2014 12:50 AM

    Sherman is THE best holder in the NFL

  96. speicher145 says: Jan 26, 2014 1:24 AM

    Seattle’s huge defensive backs will give Peyton his hardest game yet as they continuously press Denver’s receivers off the line throwing off his progression. If Seattle’s d-line is getting a pass rush could be a tough day for Broncos offense. However, Peyton is still a robot so no clue who wins this one.

  97. rtf916 says: Jan 26, 2014 3:47 AM

    Because Thomas knows the refs will be flagging Sherman all day . Even Crabtree would want Sherman covering him this week. lol.

  98. borderline1988 says: Jan 26, 2014 11:49 AM

    I have some serious doubts about Russell Wilson, I don’t see the Seahawks scoring more than 2 offensive TDs or 20 points overall. He’s a great competitor, but simply lacks the pocket passing skills of an MVP QB. He’ll make a few great throws on broken-down coverages, and Lynch will probably go for one big run. But he won’t be able to product consistent offense.

    This game is entirely about Manning vs Seattle’s defense. I think Manning will struggle a bit against one of the best secondaries in recent memory, but he will still put up some points. If Denver can avoid turning the ball over, I think they can win this.

    Denver 24, Seattle 17

  99. radar8 says: Jan 26, 2014 1:05 PM

    It should be interesting D Thomas vs Sherman. If the ref actually all holding, then Thomas will have a good day.
    If the refs make calls like the Seattle refs do, then Sherman will win the fight.

    It should be interesting.

  100. radar8 says: Jan 26, 2014 1:06 PM

    Sorry…didn’t check before hitting “submit”

    It should be interesting D Thomas vs Sherman. If the refs actually call holding, then Thomas will have a good day.
    If the refs make calls like the Seattle refs did, then Sherman will win the fight.

    It should be interesting.

  101. xplicitpits says: Jan 26, 2014 1:14 PM

    I guess no one watched the last two years of PreSeason games Sea VS Den? Seattle stomped them twice. Peyton Manning had multiple turnovers, twice! D Thomas (great player) was man handled, tossed around, sat down with one arm by Brandon Browner! Someone stepped on poor Champ Baileys foot & he missed a large part of this season. Put Derek Wolfe on a stretcher. And everybody watched Browner run one back 109 yards!

    Seattle is going to blow out DENVER! The excuse will be “the cold” blah blah blah!

  102. Mr. Wright 212 says: Jan 26, 2014 1:36 PM

    Browner is the one who held a ton. Get it right.

  103. manbroncopig says: Jan 26, 2014 1:36 PM

    And then no one ever heard Demaryius Thomas’ name until the 2014 regular season.

    Hey look, ANOTHER Seahawks fan who had never watched football prior to this year.

  104. cowboys8819 says: Jan 26, 2014 2:09 PM

    Talib shut you down. Now you want Sherman. Wow weed is definitely legal in Denver. Go watch your first game against Talib! You will think twice about that statement.

  105. kikmor says: Jan 26, 2014 2:56 PM

    If the refs (Goodell) let the teams play real football, Seattle has this game in the bag. However, the league (Goodell) wants America’s darling (Peyton) to go out with a trophy. This will be a very one sided penalized game. Keep running those picks Fox. I want to see a good hard fought game, wear the refs are not a factor. Then we would know the best team won.

  106. beastmode5150 says: Jan 26, 2014 7:48 PM

    *Fact*

    The last 5 times a SuperBowl has had the #1 offense vs the #1 Defense, the #1 Defense has won 4 of them.

    Look it up if you like.

  107. forsbergler says: Jan 27, 2014 12:17 PM

    LOL, It’s the 1st time ever that the 1st rated O has gone up against the 1st rated D.
