Hope Leslie Frasier was watching the Pete Carroll coaches his team. With a lot of enthusiasm. He has the players motivated. His players admire him. Officials respect him.

Seattle's victory should put any debate to bed as to who the Vikings should draft in the first round. Kahlil Mack with the 8th pick. Then get Garoppolo or Mettenberger in the second.

let it go were fired because the U of M didnt bring you here to be average and never improve your players skill level and performance.

Suddenly Sid doesn't like the Vikes anymore.....we're lucky we don't play them this year? We actually played them tough for a half in Seattle in it was close in the early part of the 3rd quarter until Ponder decided to "take over" the game. With a competent QB; and an improved defense I'd say the difference is not as great as Sid thinks. Every team in the NFL has great talent. Some teams have less holes like the Seahawks, 49ers, Saints. However, that's what being bad for a decade gets you when you pick in the top 15-20 every year.. Suddenly you're very talented. WIth that said, the NFC's top teams blow the AFC away. I'm not so sure the 49ers wouldn't have done the same thing to the Broncos tonight.

Viking fan here living in Seattle. It is rocking here. The real story is how many third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh rounders made a difference in this game for Seattle. The Vikings missed on about eight of the Seattle starters today starting with Russell Wilson. Spielman has done some good bartering, but he has been terrible for the most part in picking up anyone good in latter rounds. He has lacked creativity in his mid to late round drafts. The party is in Seattle Minnesota, at your expense. Take off the goggle glasses Spielman and start earning your pay.

Russell Wilson was outstanding in the Super Bowl. Wilson made things pretty rough for several B1G teams when he was a Badger, and it's a gratifying representation of B1G to see him doing so well at just 25 years old. Speaking of age, the extremely young average age of Seattle is scary.

Why is the Chanhassen kid going to Arkansas? It still snows/gets cold there, stadiums only hold about 55-70K (yes they play "home games" in 2 different cities), program hasn't won anything meaningful since the 1960s, and at best is the 5th best school in a division of 7. In other words, might as well have chosen the Gophers.

Harvin is Moss-like, without the attitude. When he is on the field, he is making game-breaking plays or dragging a double team with him, opening up the field for others. And a TD return of a pooch?? Priceless. Next year with Rice and Harvin and the rest, it will be the same story. So glad we got rid of this 'cancer.'

Right on, metaltester! Tubby was in over his head. He made his name on the coat-tails of Rick Pitino at Kentucky. It is serendipitous that Richard Pitino has taken over Tubby's malaise at the U and molds a competitive, winning team. Yes, Tubby and Bobby Knight are in the same class.....last coaching job will have been at Texas Tech.

Two more things: John Schnieder has outplayed Spielman in the last three years as a GM much like the Seahawks outplayed Denver tonight. And you heard it here..Golden Tate does not re-sign with Seattle......
