I don't know, the Seattle Seahawks are just one of those teams that just doesn't sound right in the Super Bowl.For instance, Tampa Bay (tangerine queens), Tennessee, Atlanta, they didn't belong either.I think the football purist will agree that teams like the Packers, Steelers, Cowboys, 49ers, Redskins, Raiders, Bears and who could ever forget the Jets and the guarantee, are teams that come to mind when thinking of the Super Bowl and rightfully so.Even the Vikings and Bills are more deserving than the Seahawks, they'll always be a post merger expansion team as far as I'm concerned. Here's hoping the Steelers keep the spirit of the Super Bowl alive.

Eventually these teams will be successful...at least one would hope. Are you going to be saying the same thing when in 20 years Houston and Arizona battle it out for the Lombardi trophy? (No, I'm not predicting this will happen, but what if?)

 
This is not a party where your invitation comes in the mail. It is a party to which one has to knock down the door to gain admittance. Granted the NFC this year may not have been the most reinforced door in history, but any team which knocks down the door earns admittance.

Should I just outright ban you now, or give you a chance to apologize?Seriously though, its cool. You don't have to like it. We have a good team here in the northwest and we're pretty enthused about it. You don't know much about them because the national media isn't going to devote time to the Seahawks like they will the major markets. I'm not complaining, just stating the obvious. Further, I don't blame them. The bottom line is profit for media outlets, and covering the Seahawks isn't going to pay the bills.

Sounds odd? Perhaps.

Fells odd? Yeah, pretty much.

Deserving? Damn straight.

Nice analogy. They've earned it.

Well according to most everyone (except Shick) the only team in the SB is the Steelers. You mean there is another team that will show up and play the mighty Steelers? You mean the Seahawks get to play too? Wow. That's really something. I hope the Steelers take it easy on those Hawks.Talk about a team getting NO respect. The Steeler's don't even know there is another team and apparently neither do the Steeler fans on this board. The Seahawks have been totally overlooked so far and that would be a huge mistake. After all, the Steelers know what happens when you are disrespected. ;)

How about if you let the Steelers fans enjoy the biggest team win in 10 years for a day before you start saying we are disrespecting the Seahawks.We have 2 weeks to analyze (and over analyze) the game. We'll get to it.

The last time the Jets made the Super Bowl Liz Taylor was hot, Vietnam was just becoming a full blown conflict, and no one had yet considered unleaded gas. Jets and the Super Bowl doesn't sound right either. The only time we'll hear "Jets" and "Super Bowl" in the same sentence is when one of their ex-players is in the Super Bowl thanking God the Jets let him off that sinking ship.

Having a great season
It wasn't all that long ago that "New England Patriots" and "The Super Bowl" didn't belong in the same sentence either. Things change.

...or whenever Joe Namath dies and the devil claims his soul fulfilling the pact made between the two just prior to the guarantee.

Well, the "media" handed Shaun Alexander all the major awards for this season. I would say they aren't that overlooked. ;)

They did look impressive spanking the Panthers. Alexander is the only back to go for over 100 yds this playoff season.

Eh, let them rant all they want. It warms my heart knowing all those so called football purists are all upset about the Hawks being in the Superbowl. :cry: they're not on the East coast, :cry: they're an expansion team, :cry: they're not a large market team.I'll be even happier when they're crying me a river after the Seahawks kick the steal curtain down and have their way with that rookie qb. Its a good thing they carry terrible towels around with them, they'll need them to wipe the tears away.

:lmao: deserving..Like in life, you get what you "deserve" in the NFL. The Hawks "deserve" to be there. The Vikings and Bills do not.

The 70s and 80s left a while ago guy. Time to reboot the Commodore 64.

Seattle was really knocking on the door in the mid '80s. Curt Warner was a BIG-TIME runner. And the Krieg-to-Largent combo (even though Largent was enjoying his sunset years) was certainly enough to keep defenses honest.Kenny Easley, pre-injury, was better than Ronnie Lott could have ever hoped to be.But they could just never break through. Then Warner got hurt, and the wheels just came off.They were pretty darned close, though. Pretty dadgummed good for about a 5-year stretch.
