Wilson has flatlined in recent weeks. He came up big in key moments last week though. San Fran kind of seemed like a team that was better if not for making more mistakes. But they count and Seattle cashed in.

It will be interesting to see what Seattle does if Denver gets up a couple of scores. Would they panic and run Lynch less?

As much as ever, Denver really needs to play a clean game.
You guys should win easily though. You have the best offense and QB of all time and your defense has looked really good. Wind, rain or snow. You guys have the whole package.

I remember a great story Shawn Springs told about his rookie year. He had been assigned a corner blitz and was told to make sure he disguised it so Elway wouldn't know he was coming. Right before the snap, he said Elway looked over at him and winked. Froze him in his tracks.

What you say might be true but even if they are a lot better, they still need to play well. The best team doesn't always win. But being champion is more important than being the best team. And it's hardly as if Seattle has no chance even if Denver plays well.

That's a great story... Shawn Springs probably never dreamed he'd one day be called on to blitz John Flipping Elway lmao

The rules were completely different when John Elway was in his 2nd year, then in 2014. You really can't compare two different eras like that, at least accurately. That's not to say Wilson can't be a Championship winning QB, as that is certainly possible.

I will also say that he was drafted to a Seahawks team that had a s*it load more of talent then Elway had early in his career.

Everyone will talk about how the #1 offense and #1 defense will match up, but I think it is the Broncos Defense vs the Seahawks offense that might decide this game. Both probably a bit undervalued for this game.

If the Broncos defense can play like it has to this point in the postseason (minus the 4th quarter, conservative defense they've rolled out), I really like their chances to get a win.

That's funny because all I hear is how we have no talent. I'm glad you acknowledge we have at least some talent..

Who says you have no talent? I think everyone knows Seattle is a very loaded team defensively. Have a great rushing attack. Just don't think Russell Wilson is going to lose or win the game for Seattle.

what? the media is slobbering all over your defense. And, according to the media, Lynch and your oline are unstoppable, then you add in Harvin, and the Broncos are "just glad to be here!"

If Seattle can continue to run the ball and stop the run I expect Peyton to force a few throws that end up in our hands. I like Seattle, that's my team but if we can't stop the run and force a turnover we wont win.

You have a good team. The weakest unit seems to be your wide outs but if Wilson can create time with his legs, it becomes less problematic. And it's not even that your WRs are garbage. Harvin concerns me however.

Fans of both teams have to feel like their team has a very good chance to win. Both #1 seeds, and I think most agree are clearly the 1st and 2nd best teams in the NFL. It's great we get to see the matchup.

Obviously if one team can run the ball, and the other can't--the first team would have a big advantage. Moreno's health likely key in that respect.

I just hate knowing we have the 2nd best QB on the field in terms of decision making.

We have no chance.

You forgot, Wilson is better than Elway and smarter than Peyton. He won't force anything, thats why he has only 10 interceptions this year. He only makes the smart play. A Manning-Elway hybrid with more smarts and talentů. The Broncos cannot compete. We should just send them to a Broadway show during the game. I hear Book of Mormon is good.

We have no chance.

I don't know manů seemed like in Week 13 they were talking about the talent level for the Jags and Seahawks being equal.

So let's keep track of the SeaChicken narrative so far

-Wilson is already better than Elway & Manning combined
-SeaChicken running game has already won the game
-Sherman's mouth will shutdown the entire Broncos WR's group
-Champ & DRC who?
-SeaChickens will automatically get several turnovers because they're that awesome
-Percy Harvin will take over the game and will be THE deciding factor
-SeaChicken D is the greatest of all time and will dominate our pathetic Offense
-Refs will let SeaChickens hold so Manning get's zero passing yards
-Only SeaChickens can play in the cold weather
-SeaChickens play just as well on the road as they do at home

...

We have no chance!

Denver by 14. San Fran is a better team all around.

Good luck
