    What does that have to do comparing Sherman to PP?

        Seattle has the best secondary and its not close. The run D is their weakness. Saints ran all over them in the second game. They are good overall but if we take care of the ball and do what we've done all year we should win our 3rd SB.

          We have WELKAH!...his eyes will kill them all then take their knees out one by one.

          Here's to a quick recovery the day after.

            I haven't studied their performance yet, but has Sherman faced anyone with the size/speed/strength combination of DT? If so, how did he fair?

            If DT could be the aggressor in the matchup (something we have all wanted him to do more of), my gut instinct is that its a winnable matchup. Am I crazy?

              I know the one on one debates can go back and forth, but the two Thomas', Welker, and Moreno with Manning throwing the rock can be stopped by only their own mistakes. Don't fool yourself into thinking Seattle's defense can stop this offense.

                ?
                Shut down Megatron last year. Fitz had 5 catches for 35 yards on 2 games this year. Last year Fitz had 11 targets in both games for 4 catches and 60 yards in one game and 1 catch for 2 yds in another. Despite the claim by certain posters, well poster, he is not overrated and a great CB. Denver will exploit the other matchups not the matchup with Sherman.

                I wonder which WR he will call out? DT is pretty quiet guy but our best WR. Decker has a lot more ammo for him to use with his off the field activities.

                  I say 21-7 Denver if the weather takes away field goals. 23-9 if FG's are permitted. 31-17 in calmer weather.

                  The only team that was able to put up points while running the ball was the best 3rd down team in the league, with the league MVP at QB and league's best offense (if you take away Manning and his offense). Plus Denver was playing musical chairs with their run defenders that week. I really don't see Russell Wilson picking up like 80% of his 3rd downs in bad weather.

                    Does Seattle play strictly matchup based coverages in the secondary or (similar to JDR) do they stick to sides of the field?

                      While those stats are true the poster fails to mention that the Seahawks defense has only played 1 offense in the top 10 in the NFL

                      Carolina - 26th rated offense
                      San Francisco - 24th
                      Jacksonville - 31st
                      Houston -11th
                      Indianapolis -15th
                      Tennessee -22nd
                      Arizona -12th
                      St Louis - 30th
                      Tampa Bay -32nd
                      Atlanta -14th
                      Minnesota -13th
                      New Orleans -4th
                      San Francisco -24th
                      New York -28th
                      Arizona -12th
                      St Louis -30th

                      While I believe the Seahawk defense is good. I believe the Broncos are well and above any offense they have faced this year. Peyton will find the matchups he needs to succeed.
                      Yep - you definitely have to take all of the above into consideration when evaluating the Seachickens' defense.

                        I think they do both but for the most part leave Sherman at LCB. They will do matchup at certain situations.

                        • I think that most CBs are only as good as the pressure in front of them. Despite what the numbers show, they can only cover a WR for so long. If Manning has time to stick in the pocket and let the routes develop, a guy like Marshall can be beaten. The key will be for the O-line to continue their impressive play and give Manning and the WRs the time they need.

                            No. They play primarily cover 3 zone, sometimes they play cover 1 man. They almost never move Sherman with a specific receiver because that would reveal their intended coverage.

                            He is notorious for taking risks, he plays a deep 3rd coverage but bites on Outs and hooks all the time, this is why sometimes he'll have a real bad game and get burned for 200+ yards when a team pump fakes the out.

                            He's like Ed Reed in a sense, a guy who can drive some coaches crazy, only plays his responsibility 2/3rds of the time, and will therefore sometimes break the game open with a big pick and also sometimes get slaughtered by a team running a lot of double moves.

                            He's very good at what he does, as for best corner in the league? I'm not 100% sure he's the best corner on his team. He doesn't compare in the same stratosphere as Champ in his prime, revis in his prime, Woodson, Prime, etc.

                            He wants to be talked about as the unanimous #1 like those guys were, but he never will because he plays in a defensive scheme that keeps things infront of them and protects the corners as a result.

                            If he wants to be recognized as a bad ass, he would need to be singled up in man zero or with roll-away coverage the way we did with Champ in the mid-2000's.

                            Who knows how he'd do in that kind of situation, but until he proves it, he's just another zone corner running his mouth.

                            • The biggest thing for me is, I think Denver is going to handle "Super Bowl" week much better than Seattle. Its one of the main reasons I did not want them to play the 49's, the 49's have recent experience with the media, meetings etc. that come up around Super Bowl. I think that recent experience would give them an edge. Seattle comes across as a bunch of thugs and I can see them letting Super Bowl week get to them.

                              • A good video to watch is Seattle at Atlanta last year in the playoffs. Matt Ryan attacked the Seattle defense down the field relentlessly, picking his shots against Sherman. Hit them for a bunch of long balls. Credit the OL, they kept him clean and the secondary got hit for big plays.

                                We will be able to throw on these guys. It will be important that we keep them honest vs. the run as well.
