--posted by Tony Garcia on 1/20/2006

Here we are...the Final Four in a sense.

Denver has been the silently great team of the NFL this year. Plummer became a good quarterback somehow and the Broncos hava a solid defense. Pittsburgh knocked off the best all-around team last week and have been continuing the Steel Curtain tradition. Both teams have proven that they can move the football, grind the clock down and score lots of points. Both teams have proven that they can shut down the running game. This game should be a close game. I'm thinking that it won't be that close at all.

TradeSports has the Broncos chance to win at 61.0%. I'm going to go on a limb and pick Pittsburgh.

Listeners of the Glenn Beck understand the incredible accuracy of Mor(e)on Trivia which predicts Pittsburgh to win.

Word is that Shaun Alexander is going to play this week after suffering a concusion last week. Bad move! I think Seattle can win without him...they are that complete. Not to underestimate Carolina, they have nothing for a running game and not much beyond Steve Smith for WR and somehow Smith still dominates. Overall, like I said, Seattle is a much more complete team and should pull this game out. If Alexander is 100% this game won't even be close.

TradeSports has the Seahawks at 62.2% chance of winning. I agree.

From personal level I like to see teams in the Super Bowl that have never been so I am pulling for Seattle to make it. I like Bill Cowher and the loyalty the Steelers have shown to him and would like that to be rewarded with a win in the Super Bowl. That is what I am hoping to happen. Of course, if the Broncos get thoroughly embarrassed I would consider it to be a satisfying post season.

I'd pick the Steelers if they were at home, but it's a coin flip in Denver. I say the Broncos pull it off by less than a score.

That is a very fair point. I think the point spread is Denver by 3.5 which is about the home field advantage typically given in NFL games...so that is a fair assessment.
