Gut Reaction: Seahawks 23, 49ers 17

It's official. The Broncos will be facing the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl in two weeks.

After watching the Seahawks beat the 49ers a few minutes ago, I can safely say: no big deal. There is no 12th man in New Jersey.

What will invariably be billed as the league's best defense versus Peyton Manning, will actually be a banged-up defense facing the best offense of all time.

Richard Sherman can yap all he wants and act like it's Wrestlemania, but when it comes down to it, Demaryius Thomas is going to whip him.

And in the unlikely event that he does hold down Thomas, let me introduce you to my friends Eric Decker, Julius Thomas, and Wes Welker.

On offense, the Seahawks are hardly a threat.

Russell Wilson rarely looks past his first option before he tucks and runs. And that's where Denver's speed, particularly Danny Trevathan, comes in handy.

The Beast Marshawn Lynch? Come on--Terrance Knighton probably had a postgame meal that weighed more. Knighton will eat him alive.

Finally, there is Pete Carroll. He only wins championships when he cheats at recruiting.

And you can't do that in the NFL.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.

Agree, disagree, just like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter so I can quit my day job.
