If the Seahawks make the SB then I'll root for them. I'm an NFC fan after all so I have no choice at that point.

The Seahawks are the football equivalent of the Cubs. I enjoy rooting against them. "We want the ball and we're gonna score!", is one of my favorite football memories.

Seahawks are the only team in the NFL with a mascot that doesn't exist. (There's no such thing as a seahawk). That is the only thing about them that is unique. They stole the 12th man thing from Texas A&M. (The Aggies have been using that since 1922). They stole Beast Mode from the Milwaukee Brewers. They even changed their uniforms to resemble the Oregon Ducks. Pete Carroll is the kind of guy that runs up the score and laughs at the opposition. Rooting against them just feels gooooooood.

Seahawk is another name for an Osprey.

Or the Buffalo Bills. The Buffalo Bills name is just a play on Buffalo Bill from the wild west. Back in the 30s and 40s, the minor league baseball team, the hockey team and the football team here in Buffalo were all called the Buffalo Bisons, and a Bison is just another name for a buffalo, so back in the day there were three sports teams in Buffalo that were basically called the Buffalo Buffalos. Our AAA baseball team is still the Bisons. But in the case of both the Bills and the Sabres, the focus of the team logo involves a Buffalo, the name of the city, not the teams nickname.

The Buffalo Bills were the 2nd best NFL team 4 years in a row. Not many professional sports teams can lay claim to being the 2nd best that many times (even more so in a row) in their specific sport.

Not many teams can choke that many times in a row either. Four consecutive Super Bowl losses is nothing to be proud of and is a meaningless stat. Wake me up when they have a ring.

Given that the Rams is your hometown team, I can understand your feelings toward the Seahawks. But picking on the mascot...

And just want to remind people that the Seahawks beat 3 of their possible opponents in further rounds in the regular season. OK, against GB and NE it was a little too close for comfort, but hey, a win is a win.

You are suffering a delusional mix up. That is definitely not Pete Carroll. In fact just the opposite. However, you've uncannily described Jim Harbaugh exactly to the tee! He was that way in college and is that way in the pros without any change.

No, I am not proud to be in the home town of a dysfunctional football organization that has no direction and has been an utter failure and embarrassment for the past 13 years. I am not proud to be the laughing stock of the NFL. I am not proud of 4 consecutive Super Bowl losses in the early 90s being led by a quarterback who never even wanted to play here to begin with. I am not proud that by starting out last season with a whole three wins in a row, the team is featured on the cover of SI. That right there speaks volumes of the expectations of this franchise. I would not be totally opposed to saying bye bye to the Bills and have them head off to Toronto or LA when the new lease agreement expires, if they still want a new stadium on the waterfront and want tax payers to foot the bill. No one wants to come here and play. Only reason Mario Williams is here is because no other team would pay the guy so much for doing so little. The current Buffalo Bills roster is basically a group of guys that no other team wants. Ryan Fitzmagic basically said that himself in not so many words after Gailey got fired last week. Yep, lots to be proud of right there. And as far as the city itself, I am so proud to live so close to the what Forbes listed as the sixth most dangerous city in America.

While I no longer have the interest in pro sports that I use to, if I was to wager the superbowl it would be on the team that had the longest odds of winning before the season started...

Out of the teams now alive anyone know offhand which team was the longest shot to win the superbowl?

Depends how you calculate 'winning'. If 18-1 with a SB loss is good enough for you then take the Pat's. I'd say GB has the best odds based on the last 3-5 years. The Pat's have a great shot at making the SB but losing it.

as per »www.betvega.com/super-bowl-odds/ it's the Texans and Ravens

It's interesting to see how the odds have changed over time.

Yes, it's interesting.

After looking at the odds chart of those remaining I'd say the superbowl champion will be Seattle, Atlanta or Baltimore.

Maybe the Seahawks are not that good or maybe they are? I'm rooting for them, always have, since they are the closest to a home team I have (Vancouver).
But the Falcons sure as heck wouldn't mind not playing them.
For all the hype about RGIII and Luck, the much unheralded Russell Wilson is the only Rookie standing. Plus he, the Rookie, has won more play off games than Matt Ryan.
The only problem is traveling twice to the West Coast in two weeks. They should have stayed over after humiliating the Redskins.

The Falcon's have not won a play off game since 2004 despite being in the playoffs in 2008, 2010, 2011, and now 2012. Not good odds at all there.

I have no problems watching Harbaugh lose, either.

And that's not saying much since Shaun King did the same thing.

When King played in the NFC Championship game against the Rams, that may have been the worst QB performance in a championship game I've ever seen. If Tampa had even a hint of an offense, they'd have won that game.

I had a King sighting earlier this year. He's doing TV color for the Central Florida team.

Oh, and Wilson isn't completely unheralded. Bill Simmons picked the Seahawks to win the Super Bowl because of Wilson in the pre-season.

Check out other people's picks before the season. Most were spot on so far so I wouldn't but much stock in Bill Simmon.

It's worth quoting the exact prediction:

quote:
Move over, San Francisco -- Seattle will reign supreme in NFC West
The Seattle Seahawks will win the NFC West. Their defense can be just as dangerous as the San Francisco 49ers' vaunted unit. The quarterback play can be better with Matt Flynn. San Francisco, meanwhile, must deal with a much tougher schedule and heightened expectations.

Pete Carroll's boys might not "Win Forever," but winning nine to 10 games is a doable goal. That should be enough to take the division.
1. The Seahawks did not win the NFC West
2. The QB is not Matt Flynn
3. They did win 10 games, though
