We were going to try to come up with some clever notion here, some sort of way that the cities of Charlotte and Seattle had something in common, but save for a little bit of greenish-blue in their uniforms, we couldn't come up with anything. And we can't talk about the team's uniforms, because that's something our sister would do.
A roundup of prominent picks on the Web:
• Bill Simmons: Panthers.
• Cool Standings: Panthers.
• Daily Quickie: Panthers.
• Harmon Forecast: Seahawks.
• Peter King: Panthers.
• Paul Zimmerman: Panthers.
• DEADSPIN PICK: Seahawks. It's like everyone forgot how good they were all year. They, like, won a lot in a row, you know.
(Let us know your picks and rationales in the comments section ... if you can hang, wussy.)
