If you want to back Seattle this weekend and believe all the hype on the stupid crowd noise and 12th man -- please read this article.
In short, the Patriots have a lethal offense -- which is masked by two losses to the Ravens and Cardinals. Denver got a taste of it -last week. EXPECT MUCH MORE! They have taken Chip Kelly's Oregon system and adopted it to the NFL. The Patriots had a record number of first downs last week. Their offense through 4 games has similar numbers to 2007 when they re-wrote the Offensive record books. The only difference is they are not passing for 50+ TD -- they are scoring on the ground, in the air, with WRs, with TDs, from the slot, on screens.....Brady is orchestrating the match-ups in warp speed. Get on Board now before the Pats are -10 point favorites. My guess... 24 to 28 points a week is a minimum. 30+ points will be standard fare in the weeks to come.
Yes, I love Seattle's Defense -loaded with weapons and pro bowlers. Yes this will be a great matchup however, no defense is ready for warp speed and Brady with a duel threat running game (200+ yards - last two weeks), Welker, Lloyd, and Gronk. There are matchup problems. Wait til - TE Hernandez is back and full speed.
Lastly, Russell Wilson will not outscore the Pats. Recent performances show that 14 to 17 points is a stretch for him.
