Seattle will win the Superbowl!



Ok, now that I have your attention. Please respond accordingly.

I keep seeing this predicted from the "experts" in the media. I see it and I (kinda) get it based on off season moves and how the Seachickens kicked our tired butts in Seattle - they looked on that day like the much better team.

But we went to the SB, the year before that, the NFC championship. We are clearly building something and just getting better. I LOVE our new wide receiver options, our new corner depth, and our new linebacker youngsters. I LOVE that Kaep is going to play a whole season and build more chemistry with his offense. I LOVE that both Smith Brothers are reunited and healthy. Many of the pre-pre-season concerns feel less like concerns. And yet...

Media outlets everywhere are picking the Seahawks! And this is AFTER losing a guy who's name rhymes with Mercy Charmin.

What I would appreciate from the brilliant minds here on Niner Nation is a position by position comparison of the Seahawks and Niners. Is Russell Wilson better than Kaep? I am not as aware as most on this site - so please correct my efforts to compare squads and feel free to provide details and evidence...

Below I put who I see as having the edge in key areas and positions...

Coaching: Niners

QB: push

Wide receivers: Push? I need help here.

Tight ends: Niners

RBs: Seahawks

Offensive line: Niners

(so on offense, we should have the edge, yes?)

Special teams - No idea.

Defense:

Linebackers: Niners

Defensive line: push

corners: Seahawks

safeties: seahawks?

so, maybe they have edge on defense - hard to imagine. Thought we had the best D in the league.
