    Sorry, but my money would be on the Patriots at 10-1 next year. No big play receiver to stretch the field (that hole will certainly be filled in the offseason), a healthy Gronkowski, defensive starters back (Jerrod Mayo, Tommy Kelly, and Vince Wilfork), and the same backfield......they'll be a tough out. With all the injuries and shortcomings this year, they only lost a single game by double digits (Denver in AFC Championship)!

    I give huge credence to the GM, and those that had a hand in selecting and drafting this team. These players are the 2nd youngest team ever to win a SB. I have never been a fan of Pete Carroll, but he did one heck-of-a-job in leading this team. Wilson put this team on the map. His football IQ blows most away.

    Lamar Miller? what?

  • vt94hokies Feb 4, 2014

    Never know. With so many great guys returning, and considering the youth on this team; you can't count them out.

    Good points.

    To even win a Divisional Championship takes great focus. Fortunate.

    I know a lot of people are on the Panthers hate wagon, but the Panthers WILL beat Seattle next year and if they face San fran they WILL beat them!!!! The Panthers don't get the credit they deserve by many and especially the media!!!!

    I guess it all depends on health....don't forget that Denver had 5 defensive starters out....if seattle had 5 d starters out, they would have had some trouble....and the final score was so bad because the Denver d(who actually played good most of the first half) finally collapsed when they got no help from the offense.....seattle got 9 first-half points from their defense, and their td drive was only 39 yards....the other 2 times they were held to a fg....but with no help from the offense, and already short players, the d finally cracked....if Denver had their full d, we could have witnessed a defensive struggle, of which seattle was in quite a few this year

    The thing about the NFL is that no team remians the same from year to year. There are drafts, trades, and free agents such that a team can move from the bottom to the top tier in a very short time. This "mystique" is planned, I feel sure, and keeps the NFL intersting. Clearly, if everything stayed the same, Seattle, Denver and a few others would be heavy favorites next year. Glad they do it that way.

    I'm not saying they will repeat... even GREAT teams can lose in the playoffs and not make it to the Superbowl.

    A repeat is a rarity, but Seattle seems to be a rarity in that they are both awesome AND young. This group could be scary good for several years to come.

    All a team can hope for is to CONTEND for the Superbowl. And the Seahawks have that without a doubt. I think their confidence will carry them far next year. There is no Superbowl monkey on their backs. They can go out and just keep playing good football. I like their chances with that defense. And people will begin to realize they actually have an offense, too.

    I saw that as well and thought it was odd. Seattle is a very young team with a bright future ahead of them, while Denver has an aging Peyton at the helm. Surprised at those odds, considering the final score of the game would indicate Seattle would be heavily favored over Denver next year.

  • jmcdow2792 Feb 3, 2014

    ESPN showed a list with Denver having the same odds as Seattle to make the SB next year (both 1 to 5). I just don't see Denver having that good odds of making it next year.

  • StunGunn Feb 3, 2014

    The NFC will once again be a very tough conference, and as good as Seattle is, I agree it will be tough for them to repeat winning the SB. San Fran should challenge Seattle next season for the top spot in the NFC West. Closer to home, the Panthers have a lot of work to do in keeping the laundry list of free agents as well as extending Cam's contract, which won't be cheap.
