Churchill: A Weak Link In Denver’s ‘D’

While some analysts, beat reporters and columnists in the country attempt to explain why the Denver Broncos will win the Super Bowl simply because it’s “Peyton Manning’s moment,” or because “great defense beats a great offense every time,” I’m sticking to real life. That means I’m considering only tangible reasons why one team may have an advantage over the other.

Three Things: 49ers at Seahawks

Yes, the two teams are similar. No, they aren’t exactly the same, and neither is the checklist of what each team needs to do to come out the victor and book their trip to East Rutherford for the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks’ Simple Plan For Kaepernick

The Seahawks have a scheme for Kaepernick, and it’s quite simple: Be someone you’re not. Meaning, Kaepernick will have to make plays with his arm against a full slate of defenders, which puts his accuracy and decision-making to the test.

Super Bowl Berth On Russell Wilson’s Shoulders

San Francisco possesses a fast defense; their ends are fast, their linebackers are fast and despite not having the All-Pro secondary the Seahawks boast, they, too, can run and cover ground. Giving them more ground to cover is large advantage to Wilson and the Seahawks.

Churchill: Seahawks, 49ers Will Play Three-Match

At home, Seattle has a unique and decided edge that has led them to victories in 15 of their last 16 games, and five in a row in the postseason.

Churchill: Buzz On Tanaka, Mariners On Fire

Most pundits are now projecting Tanaka signs with either Seattle or Arizona, but if any of the rumors, vis-a-vis the Mariners’ heavy courting of the split-finger master and the idea that perhaps Tanaka already knows where he wants to play, things could end well for the Emerald City.

Churchill’s Wild Card Picks

It’s Wild Card Weekend in the National Football League. A two-day run that may be the best of the year in all of sports, and one that will send home four of the 12 postseason participants.

Seahawks Can Bust Myth Of Home Field Advantage

Home field advantage hasn’t been the stone-cold lock some believe it is. The first-round bye has bitten several top seeds over the year, and the phrase “Any Given Sunday” is truly in effect, no matter the team nor venue.
