07:38 AM ET 01.20 | Considering the group's perceived reputation, even if they had to walk to New Jersey, the Seahawks "pedestrian" receiving corps would probably take it. [Doug Baldwin] is on a mission to convince everyone his team's wideouts take far too much abuse because of their relatively modest production. Baldwin caught a game-high six passes for 106 yards in Seattle' s 23-17 triumph over the 49ers in the NFC Championship, including a 51-yarder in the second quarter with his team trailing 10-0 that led to a field goal. "It irritates the [heck] out of me when you have guys that constantly want to talk about our receiving corps," Baldwin said. "Talking about how we're average, we're pedestrian. Well, we're going to walk our [butt] to the Super Bowl, pedestrian."

If you were to light up Champ Bailey, Doug - you would make a whole lot of people happy.

The perception is isn't going to improve any, with that cadre of receivers on the other side of the field, in two weeks

Good game, but too much classless trash talking after they won

The Hawks were supposed to have Sidney Rice and Percy Harvin, remember.

Baldwin also had that long runback, right? He looked like the best receiver out there last night, for either team.

Maybe, but not by much. The long reception was a breakdown in coverage.

Boldin heard footsteps and had some uncharacteristic drops. Crabtree is not as good as Harbaugh thinks. Vernon Davis was underutilized.

I think Seattle has some other receivers, too

My question is what is on his left arm!

There's this long black piece of plastic or fabric that hangs out of left shoulder of Doug Baldwin's jersey. At first I thought it was a really bad tattoo.

Now I'm thinking it's a bra strap. Where are the NFL's uniform police?

Wait until you get to NY and their media gets a hold of you Baldwin.

Probably because no one on that receiving squad could hit 900 yards or 6 touchdowns.

Seattle's in the defense for one primary reason: their defense (with a little help yesterday from the refs). The Doug Baldwin's of Seattle are just there for the ride.

Unfortunately this has become the norm in the NFL.

KT Tape. I wear it on my knee when I'm active.

Meh... I'll bet a buck we will see all sorts of bylines next week from the leering press of New York complaining about the NFofL not giving them the access they will feel entitled to.

Goodell's folk manage tha stuff better than anyone out there.

Seattle will have their work cut out for them if Denver plays like they did yesterday.

No kidding, and the same boring questions over and over "How do you feel....''

Agreed. Lots of emotion but no excuses!

Don't forget the run game. And even though Wilson has been less than stellar lately, he can still pull something out of his a** when necessary.

San Diegan by birth, life-long Bronco hater... but thanks to the idiot Sherman and this tool, I hope Peyton throws 12 touchdowns against them. Great team, Sherman's a great player (Baldwin's a journeyman at best), but Sherman in particular and Carroll too are just such miserable braying **** human beings, I want them to feel utter humiliation. Been a long time since I was genuinely passionately interested in a game, so I guess thanks, Seattle... truly hate y'all, and I didn't think I had that in me any more.

I was cheering for Seattle vs 49ers. Never again! Until they learn how to win with class they will lose this fan. Go Broncos.

Since when were the hawks being, "hated on" , to use an Ebonics term? They are 15-3. I think any football fan or analyst recognizes and gives credit to their prowess.

Now everyone can experience their lack of professionalism and it starts with Carroll.

Seattle and San Francisco are mirror images of each other. Go Broncos!
