Sounds about right to me if the Colts can pull it off.

Can't pull for the Colts. The media buildup to Manning vs Luck would be unbearable.

REally? I would MUCH rather play the Colts in the Super Bowl than any remaining team in the AFC. They're so over-rated it's sad, and if, IF we got that far and won, RW would beat both RG3 and Andrew Luck. It'd be great. Much better than playing Manning in his hometown.

God no on luck.

The last thing they need is more wins when they are so bad.

Plus respect Ray Lewis too much to support ChuckStrong movement.

The Colts aren't going to the Super Bowl with that defense and running game. They'd have to get past Baltimore, Denver, and then probably New England to do it, all on the road.

Of course they would, and of course it's unlikely, but it's possible, and if I got to pick an AFC team to face in the super bowl, it would be the Colts. If I had to pick from the LIKELY contenders, I'd prefer Baltimore, then New England, then Houston, then Denver. Any other year I would love to play the Broncos for a title, but not with Manning going home to his hometown. Too many bad memories of XL.

Neither Baltimore or Indy worry me, but neither of them are getting to the SB anyway. As hard as it is for us to get there, its about 10x harder for either of them.

I would imagine the Ray Lewis story is up there with the biased ones

We're the only road team that was favored. So I think it would be more practical then funny.

I said earlier it was quite likely. 'Hawks on the road were the only team I really thought could do it, and so far my picks are looking pretty damned good. I'd be very surprised if the Colts won tomorrow. And I would be surprised if we didn't. One for four road teams win when the league average is about 400-something? Yea, sounds pretty accurate.

Well if the Ravens do win tomorrow heading into our game,the odds are in our favour.In the last 8 seasons the home wildcard team only won 17 of 30 games,so a road victory will be overdue according to history.

SO many people give us crap for being a bad road team, it would be great to just shove that in their faces.

All I want is for the refs to officiate smartly and fairly. They do that, Seahawks can win.
