Halloween came and went. We stuffed our faces during Thanksgiving and celebrated the season at Christmas. We rang in the New Year and let Valentines go to the wayside. Pretty soon the unofficial holiday of Opening Day will be upon us and there are always a ton of questions as to what the new baseball season will bring us. I only have ten, but they are the ten most important and burning questions going into Spring Training.
Quite The Finish
Before we get to the second guessing of the final offensive play for the Seattle Seahawks, lets face facts. Time of possession was a huge factor in the New England Patriots winning Super Bowl XLIX. As was the fact that going 8 for 14 on third down and having Tom Brady being sacked only once helped them score 28 points. Who played to win the game? Both of them did, but we all know that if anyone else had a say, Marshawn Lynch would be getting the ball on the one yard line.
Will this be a repeat of last years Super Bowl? Hopefully not, but it seems to be a rematch with the New England Patriots who play with the same style as the Denver Broncos who were trounced in last years game. Seattle has certainly peaked at the right time and they will try to be the first repeat champion since the Patriots did in 2004-05. Tom Brady is trying to get his fourth title and Russell Wilson wants to get paid like an elite quarterback. This wasn’t the matchup we expected, but it is the one we were dealt.
