“Jesus is better than the Super Bowl,” says Seahawks Defensive Passing Game Coordinator Rocky Seto, and some Seahawks players are clearly in agreement.

Before their playoff run a group of Seattle Seahawks players sat down with the pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle for a videotaped discussion called, “Who is Jesus?”

“It’s no question he gave us everything,” Seto says during the group interview. …

They thought they got religion out of there after going after Tebow, but now they have a whole team to contend with.

Bingo. One caveat—if it is the whole team.

Interesting to read the hate on that blog. Russell Wilson makes “only” $670,000 a year. Will obviously be millions once his contract comes up. Every week during the season (maybe off season too?) he spends some time at Seattle Children’s Hospital. I think he is about as far from the “bling” as possible.

He was once asked about trying to get more money after such a great first year. He replied to the effect that was his contract - and it is about the game, not the money. With an added response though of “but of course if I work I want to get paid!” I’m pretty sure he won’t argue with a pay raise though.

Happy. That’s my team. Sherman’s idiotic comments in the end were a turn off though..

The Seahawks can try as they might, they can not overcome the idiot interview after the game. I hope the Broncos crush them.

Sounds like an attempt at damage control to me.

All Seahawks

We will see two weeks of puppy love for Peyton Manning

My former Gator Percy Havin will be back and Peyton hasn't seen a defense like Seattle.

Global Warming will hurt Peyton he is a Dome QB.

Sherman’s idiotic comments in the end were a turn off though..

Erin Andrews ambush "interviews" Sherman right after he gets whacked in the helmet by an opposing player after the biggest play of his life and Erin expects him to to be all sweetness and light?

After the game, on the Fox panel, Sherman -- much calmer -- said he was still in game mode when Andrews ran over and stuck a mike in his face. I'm sure she'll be amply rewarded for stirring up some headlines.

But he's a football player, Erin, what did you expect?

Awesome game for both teams. One of the best of the year.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson posts a Bible verse on Facebook daily. And if you want to see one of the most heartwarming stories of the year, check out ESPN’s feature on Wilson and the girl — in the hospital for a heart transplant — who made him a duct tape wallet. Wilson’s the real deal.

I was happy to see the 49ers and Kaeperpick lose today.

When Kurt Warner was making the league minimum and took the Rams to a Super Bowl win, they had 500k left over in their salary cap and gave it to Warner, who gave 10% to Charity.

Warner would later sign a huge contract (by the year 2000 standards) and gave 10% to charity.

He also adopted a blind child and has done a lot of charity work.

For all of the hoodlums in the NFL, read about Kurt Warner if you already haven’t.

His life is so unbelievable that Hollywood should make a movie about him, but since he’s a devout Christian, they never will.

He has written a few books and they are very inspirational even though I’m not a very religious person.

Even if you’re not a football fan, his life story is amazing.

I recommend “All thing Possible”

Dude is a me me me punk.

He’s the T.O. of defensive backs.

He got slapped because he deserved it after his mock handshake and butt slap of Crabtree, right after the game. If the pass is on target, Sherman is beat...pass of by three inches.

You hate Kaepernick because he’s a Christian?

No, where did you get that idea?

I hate Kap because he’s a self-centered jerk when he does that bicep kissing thing and I don’t know if he’s a Christian or not.

Calling upon the people of fallen America to repent might be a good idea while the spotlight is upon him...

You should live in Memphis, Tn. 45 years of Manning Puppy Love. Archie, Peyton and Eli. Thank goodness we didn’t have to endure Cooper. The Mannings are on the same level as Elvis. Sheese!

You could understand him?

Good player, but he definitely needs to learn humility. With his mouthing off, he places a bull’s eye right on his chest. You don’t need to give the opposing team another reason to play rough.

Except that story and video were posted prior to Sherman’s post-game interview rant.

Speaking for myself, I have no dog in the fight either way though I’m leaning towards the Broncos.

Anything that upsets the Olbermann-and-fellow-traveler-crowd has got to be a good thing IMHO.

I agree.
