Why the Seahawks will win the Super Bowl

And how can the fans in New Jersey and New York resist the Hawks' personalities?

Against the San Francisco 49ers, the Seahawks performed like a team on the verge of a championship. And they have the personality to have the country rooting for them as America's Team. 

Art Thiel is all over the Super Bowl and the Seahawks' preparations for the big game. Thanks to our sponsor MTR Western, a motor coach service for college and pro sports teams. Find out more about MTR Western by clicking here.

Amen Art. Denver beat up on weak defenses all year. In the playoffs they played against the 26th and 23rd ranked defenses in the NFL. Now they're going against the best. Seattle put up 100 yards rushing yards on San Francisco, which "nobody does" and rolled the Saints secondary (2nd best pass defense in the league) with "a bunch of second stringers." I don't think the national sports media see this one coming. Seahawks Super Bowl Champs all the way!

Maybe the Hawks will win, maybe not. But it doesn't seem like America is rooting for them. http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2014/01/americans-strongly-back-broncos.html

Besides, who ever bought that BS about Dallas being "America's Team." Cowboy fans and that was it.
