    Stang0, if you can't see anything or hear anything (as you admit in your posts above), how do you arrive at your opinions…by brail?

    I can't imagine how miserable someone could be after predicting that Wagner and Turbine wouldn't get drafted and then two years later see them standing on the Championship podium holding the Super Bowl trophy. That has to be a low point for an Aggie hater.

    I don't know why an opinion is so controversial. Maybe because I said it and all you aggies Manfred Man don't like to hear what I have to say. I don't know anymore.

    Saying Bobby Wagner didn't play in the Super Bowl is as untrue (and ludicrous) as saying Marshawn Lynch or Peyton Manning or Percy Harvin or Wes Welker didn't play in the Super Bowl. That shouldn't be controversial to anybody because every one of those players played a major part in that game.

    And Spokane Ute speaks the truth.

    You guys make me laugh. Let me expand on my comment. The players who actually played, the bench warmers, the coaches, the water boy, the doctors, the front office staff you get the point, get rings. Doesn't mean they had anything to do with the win. Maybe he did maybe he didn't. I just didn't hear the name. Are we really going back to the Richard thing Ifel ofa-sofa? You were showing such potential. I'm sure Richard whomever he may be agrees with me. I'm willing to bet I know more than most. I never admitted I didn't watch the game. I watched it from start to finish. Words are being put in my mouth. I don't know the Seahawks but I know football. Manning was mentioned because he played and he is Peyton Manning. I'm not.

    Because Stang0 didn't hear Wagner's name he didn't play? Is he serious? Recording 10 tackles is far more important than having your name said. Ask Peyton Manning. His name was mentioned plenty! Thanks to Spokane Ute for above..Stang0 has to be stunned by that info.

    Bobby Wagner is an absolute stud. He led the best defense in the NFL in tackles this season. He led this team in tackles (3 way tie) in the Super Bowl. He is the heart and soul of the Seahawks defense. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know Wagner, doesn't know the Seahawks; and quite frankly doesn't know football. The Hawks need to lock up Wagner for the long haul. I rank the Seahawks as follows: Wilson, Sherman, Thomas, Chancellor, Wagner, Lynch.

    Go Hawks!

    Richard shows his true colors again, looking for a way to disparage anything AGGIE.

    I am wondering how much he really knows about football, given the face that he stated:

    "He didn't play in the Super Bowl. Not once from the starting kickoff to the end of the game was the name Bobby Wagner ever mentioned. Am I the only one who noticed that?"

    You just admitted to ALL that you didn't watch, or maybe pay attention to the Superbowl. I am guessing that matches you attention to anything football... are you just a headline reader?

    I didnt hear Wagners name, therefore he didn't play. And aggie super bowl rings dont count cause I said so!!

    I never said I didn't want to hear his name. Were any of you at Buffalo Wild Wings that night? I think I saw a few of you. Guess what Ironmomo, everyone on the winning team get's a ring. Even if they didn't play in the game.

    If you didn't hear Wagners name it was because you didn't want to hear his name. It's understandable especially when you predicted that he wouldn't get drafted

    Wagner had 10 total tackles 5 of those were unassisted. So I'm sure the announcers didn't say " hold on folks, there's that #54 again, that unknown guy who just made another tackle...give us a few minutes while we look up his name".

    Guess what Stang...Wagner and Turbin both have Superbowl Championship rings.

    I don't know his number because I'm not a Wagner or a Seahawks fan. Still didn't hear his name. There is no issue because I didn't hear his name or see him.

    @Manfred Man

    A little late. I didn't see 54. Does it mean he didn't play? Of course not. But I know I didn't see anything.

    Wait... did Stang seriously try and argue Wagner didn't play in the Super Bowl? Wagner has been a two-year starter for the Seahawks, his number is #54. In fact, this very article points out Wagner had 10 tackles in the Super Bowl.

    Glad those former Aggies could bring home Super Bowl rings. And I'm very glad our former lineman from Weber State could bring one home, too.

    Check the game stats stang. And I watched the game 3 times, they did mentioned him in on tackles. And not only that, they mentioned him from Utah State when he made a tackle for a loss. Also, if you would know his # you would have seen it many many times on assisted and solo tackles. So please leave this issue alone. But one more thing, Turbin played the whole 4th quarter and several plays earlier in the game. so check his stats also.

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, don't you know that? I watched the game and only heard Turbin's name the last two minutes of the game. Never heard Wagner's name. And I was in Aggie country when I watched the game. I am the only one to notice that.


    As I said a second ago I watched the whole game. The only reason you thought it was great was because one aggie played the last two minutes. The other aggie did not play. I know what I heard and I didn't hear the name Bobby Wagner.

    Stang08, you missed a great game. He lead the team with 10 tackles in the Super Bowl. He was huge

    Sour grapes! My bizarre anti-Aggie bias won't allow me to acknowledge Bobby Wagner recorded 10 total tackles against the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

    Great Seahawk, led the team in tackles. The Seahawks need to lock Wagner into a long term deal. He's very valuable to the defense. He doesn't get the press and hype like Sherman and Wilson do but Wagner can flat out play and is the heart and soul of the best defense in the NFL. Bobby Wagner is a stud!

    He didn't play in the Super Bowl. Not once from the starting kickoff to the end of the game was the name Bobby Wagner ever mentioned. Am I the only one who noticed that?
