Vegas disagrees. Denver -3.
As much as I'm rooting for Denver, I'd take the points.

Go Broncos ..I said they would go undefeated so I guess I sort of lose, but I'll take it ... cr****
Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
Classic game. Doug Baldwin played out of his mind today and kept us in it. I thought Harbaugh showed a lot of class in his post game comments. Sherman, not so much, but damn what a play at the end.
I probably would have routed for Seattle in the Super Bowl but fuck that. I'm not even that mad with Sherman post game interview (lets face it would be a great wwe promo) but is it that hard to show a little bit of class? What really fucking pissed me off was the throwing food after Bowman snapped in leg in half. Seriously what is wrong with those fans? A guy is injured getting carted off the field show some fucking respect. That is worse then when the 49er fans did the wave during another players injury. As far as the game goes, not much I can say Seattle just played better.
I'm still wondering how a) NaVorro Bowman held onto the ball when his leg was destroyed and b) Why the hell wasn't that play reviewed?
There were a lot of those kind of strange activities by the refs last night. The Seacocks won't get those kind of calls in the Super Bowl, so they better start playing to win instead of playing to barely hang on if they want to win in New Jersey.
It wasn't the refs' fault that the fumble wasn't reviewed, I'm pretty sure it's a rule that those plays can't be reviewed.
I need some evidence that the fans threw food at Navorro Bowman, because that's too heinous to believe.
Yeah it's hard to fault an entire fan base for that. Every team has fans who would have done the same thing, given the chance.
Are ppl that are upset over sherman's interview angry with the tone he used or what he said? I agree it was classless, unnecessary, and way over the top to bash crabtree like that. But was anything he said wrong? I don't think so. He is arguably the best corner in the league and crabtree is mediocre. That was a real fucking interview and I loved it.
What a night, and what a finish.
Near midnight I still had about 70 unread text messages from friends and family, most of which read, “Best interview ever!” Many of my Twitter mentions were less supportive. My body ached. I was thrilled and proud and upset, all at once.
Here’s what happened …
I spent most of the game on an island: I was targeted only twice during the entire NFC Championship. The first produced a BS holding call against me; the second ended the game. Michael Crabtree stutter-stepped out of his break on first down and sprinted toward the end zone. I was in good position for a pick until he pushed me in the back. My interception became a tip and an interception for Malcolm Smith in the end zone.
Game over. The Seahawks are in the Super Bowl.
I ran over to Crabtree to shake his hand but he ignored me. I patted him, stuck out my hand and said, “Good game, good game.” That’s when he shoved my face, and that’s when I went off.
I threw a choking sign at 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Why? Because he decided he was going to try the guy he was avoiding all game, because, I don’t know, he’s probably not paying attention for the game-winning play. C’mon, you’re better than that.
“It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am.”
Erin Andrews interviewed me after the game and I yelled what was obvious: If you put a subpar player across from a great one, most of the time you’re going to get one result. As far as Crabtree being a top-20 NFL receiver, you’d have a hard time making that argument to me. There are a lot of receivers playing good ball out there, and Josh Gordon needed 14 games to produce almost double what Crabtree can do in a full season. And Gordon had Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell playing quarterback.
But that’s not why I don’t like the man. It goes back to something he said to me this offseason in Arizona, but you’d have to ask him about that. A lot of what I said to Andrews was adrenaline talking, and some of that was Crabtree. I just don’t like him.
It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am. I don’t want to be a villain, because I’m not a villainous person. When I say I’m the best cornerback in football, it’s with a caveat: There isn’t a great defensive backfield in the NFL that doesn’t have a great front seven. Everything begins with pressure up front, and that’s what we get from our pass rushers every Sunday. To those who would call me a thug or worse because I show passion on a football field—don’t judge a person’s character by what they do between the lines. Judge a man by what he does off the field, what he does for his community, what he does for his family.
But people find it easy to take shots on Twitter, and to use racial slurs and bullying language far worse than what you’ll see from me. It’s sad and somewhat unbelievable to me that the world is still this way, but it is. I can handle it.
One thing I can’t accept is what I read after the game about Seahawks fans throwing food at 49ers linebacker Navorro Bowman as he was being carted off the field with his knee injury. If it’s true, it’s beyond terrible. That’s as low as it gets. I’m sure whoever did this is in a small minority of fans, because I don’t think that kind of action is an accurate representation of the character of the 12th man. Navorro Bowman is a great player who plays the game the right way. When he went down, I dropped to a knee and prayed for him. He deserves better than having food thrown at him as he’s carted off a field. All players deserve better than that.
So here we are, in the Super Bowl. New York-bound. There will be a lot of talking, but at this point, after 18 games, there’s nothing left to say. We have the right mindset, and nothing can change that. We’ve treated every week like a championship opportunity and we’ll obviously continue to think that way. We deserve to be here. We didn’t sneak into the Super Bowl; we earned our way. Now every goal we set forth at the beginning of the season is in front of us.
The Broncos stand in our way, and it’s a large obstacle. They’ve got the smartest quarterback in football and receivers who are large (mostly), explosive with the football and run great routes. Wes Welker is quick and elusive, Eric Decker is a great receiver with hands and speed, and Demaryius Thomas is as strong as they come. And Peyton knows how to get each of them in spots.
It’s the No. 1 offense vs. the No. 1 defense. It’s a match made in heaven, and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’re any kind of competitor and you have any kind of dog about you, you want to play against the best. Finally, we get the opportunity.
SF, NE, DEN have all had their time. Seattle's waited 35 years to celebrate a championship (minus WNBA). We've been the frustrated underdog sports town full of almosts and what-ifs but the feeling in the air right now is the most electrifying I can remember. In Super Bowl XLVIII the immovable object > unstoppable force. Go Hawks!
OK so it was one fan, which I did not know at the time. I take back the "those fans" and turn it into "that fan."
Also Sherman needs to learn when to shut up. Like I said before I'm not even mad at it but here the Seahawks play a great game and earn the trip to the Superbowl, but instead of talking about the game all the media is focusing attention on his post game interview and not talking about their victory. I understand it's who he is and him keeping his name out there but sometimes you just have to let people talk about the team and not you.
On the other side of spectrum you have Russell Wilson who always says the right thing and is always positive and diplomatic and his press conferences and interviews are usually boring.
And there is no reason why anyone shouldn't like Russell Wilson at all.
Sherman is the best CB in the league. He just happens to be the biggest mouthpiece in the league as well.
I'm a big 49ers fan. Great game played by both teams. I understand the seattle crowd has an effect on the field but I'm getting kinda tired of hearing about the 12th man. Sherman played that last play perfectly. Kudos to him and seattle. The refs were absolutely horrible this game. That's the way it goes sometimes. Kaepernick... Never been on the wagon and probably won't be with his piss poor performance this year. If it wasn't for an excellent defense and great receivers (can't forget about Gore in the RB position obviously) the niners would not have gotten this far. We need a QB in the QB spot not a running back.
Having said that I'm looking forward to the Super Bowl
Sherman's been a classless fucking egomaniac tool since his start in the league. a simple search on YT for him yields a bunch of vids of him acting like a jackass (the Skip Bayless interview is now classic) But what makes his behavior yesterday that much worse is that it didn't take the best CB in the league to make that play. Kaepernick lost that game with a bad throw that half if not most CBs in the league could have knocked away.
What he's primarily known for these days is his mouth instead of his play.
