Nothing turns NFL heads quite like an offensive explosion! The Seattle Seahawks blanked the Arizona Cardinals 58-0 and the New York Giants all but ended the New Orleans Saints 2012 season with a 52-27 victory. However, this begs a pretty obvious question. Which one of these two eight and five teams is more prepared to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February? In my mind, both of these teams will make some noise in the NFC playoffs. In fact, this could easily be the NFC Championship Game. Until then the hypothetical argument will continue.
Not too many coaches have had the career that Tom Coughlin has. At times Coughlin’s head has been called for by media across the country. Well, two super bowls in five years looks great on any resume. Furthermore, Coughlin knows exactly how the Giants can become the eighth team to repeat as Super Bowl Champions. The quarterback that is “Elite” and is not afraid to say it. Eli Manning. Manning was par for the course against a horrendous Saints team but the story of the game was the emergence of rookie Running back David Wilson who had 327 all purpose yards along with three of the Giants seven touchdowns.
The Seahawks dismantled the Cardinals. There is no other way to put it. In addition, the Seahawks attained their first divisional win in 2012. Russell Wilson still leads all rookie quarterbacks with 19 touchdowns. Without the praise that Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III receive, Wilson is making his case to be the NFL’s offensive Rookie of the Year. However, the stats show that there has never been a Super Bowl champion with a rookie quarterback at the helm. Point blank, Wilson and the Seahawks aren’t quite Super Bowl caliber.
