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.

Many teams which are fortunate enough to make it to the Super Bowl aren’t prepared to deal with the circus atmosphere, becoming distracted with the fan parties and media hype. While few Seahawks players have […]
The Seahawks launched their Superbowl practices in Renton with #11 joining the offense. Receiver/ return man Percy Harvin was a full participant, obviously receiving clearance from team doctors and an independent neurologist following a concussion […]

Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down and Seattle’s top-ranked defense forced two late turnovers, lifting the Seahawks into their second Super Bowl with a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Percy Harvin has still not cleared the required NFL concussion tests and was held out of his second straight practice as the Seahawks prepare to face the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC Championship. At […]
