Next year, the Roman Numeral thingie gets extremely boring.
Anyhoo, this years stupid bowl holds promise to be a good game.
Although Aaron Rogers holds the highest QB rating ever, Russell Wilson would be second, if he had 1500 attempts, instead of 1252. Tom Brady is currently fifth.
Two of the top cornerbacks in the league, in Richard Sherman and Darryl (sp?) Revis.
“Beast Mode” Marshawn Lynch, vs LeGerrette (sp?) Blount (“Beast Mode” in his own right).
Look, I’m not saying I know this will be a good game. It could be a lopsided blowout. But the number one ranked defense (Seattle) against the number 1 (AFC East, at least) ranked offense is going to be fun. Will Sherman play, or be healthy if he does? Will Brady throw his way (see previous sentence)? Will Russell Wilson try to throw on Revis?
Lots of questions for the head coaches to answer.
Who will run, the most? How will Blount run against the #1 rush defense? How will Lynch do against a pretty damned stout run defense? (This one is a no brainer, and beast mode WILL run on them. Period. One way or another. May be the game changer.)
I have more comments, but don’t want to bore you, especially if you’re not a football fan (or only cheer for one team).
Instead, check out the videos at this page:
Amazing what some of those guys could do. Seriously, when you have time, watch the videos.
