    I couldn't believe that finish by the Seahawk's yesterday. Since they're just a short drive south of us, we adopted them as our team in BC long ago, when they were, for the most part, basement dwellers. Now they have a chance to repeat and that hasn't been done since 2005. It's also quite fitting that the team they're facing is the last one to do that.

    So time for predictions... of course, I go with the Seahawks... 24 to 17.

    I'm going to say Patriots 30-28 with Seattle missing a late field goal. This will complete the NFC play-off shoulda. Detroit, Dallas, Green Bay, Seattle.

    I want Seattle to win. I'm not sure they will.

    Part of the reason nobody repeats is that the league doesn't want them to. They make rule changes (or change "emphasis" in officiating) to counteract whatever the strength of the Superbowl winner is.

    Just like the NBA, if the league doesn't want you to win, you probably won't.

    and the other team that had 2 back to back wins: The Patriots
    Tom Terrific won't be beat, probably close to his last time at the big show.

    I'm also rooting for the Seahawks, but think the Patriots have a better shot at it. Deflategate has been a major distraction for the team though, so who knows if this will be a factor or not mentally. Looking forward to watching the game!

    My prediction is that my favorite commercial will be BMW's with the tag line, "Some fear the future... Others drive it"

    To be fair, I'd say they Drive it, although not in the lead position.
    The i3 is a fun car, and they are selling in decent numbers.

    I think the tag line is more appropriate to EV drivers as a whole, than any particular company.

    Deflatriots win a close match as the returning Seahawks succumb to the pressure.

    The Seahawks will wear out the old flatulators in the first half and wrap it up with a bow late in the game. It's just their style.

    don't count on it, Patriots are set to make some new NFL records with the upcoming win on Sunday.
    The team is very focused, a few underinflated footballs checked indoors, and checked outdoors 20F colder in the rain will not affect them.

    Patriots will win. Seattle will play a better game than against the Packers (quarterback won't have a rating of 0 at the half! ).
    Patriots by a touchdown. And Tom will retire.

    They threw the ball?!!! Run it, and they likely win. Throw it and risk an interception. So they throw it -- and lose.

    Wow, that's unbelievable! Really poor call to say the least.

    Congratulations Patriots!

    They probably wouldn't have had the chance to make the bad call without the insane hackie-sack catch right before it. Quite a sudden set of reversals in fortune - you can't even script stuff that crazy...
