If the patriots want to be the best they’ll have to beat the best.

The Seahawks are looking to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champs since the Patriots in 2003 and 2004.

“We’re going to play a great team, you know, they wouldn’t be there if they wasn’t. To go back two years in a row, it’s tough, and they did it, so, they’re a deserving team and we’ve got our work cut out for us,” Patriots Safety Devin McCourty said.

For Brandon Browner it’s a trip down memory lane.

“I’m always going to have love for those guys, but at the end of the day it’ll be sweeter to beat those guys, you know,” the Patriots cornerback said.

The former Seahawk is ready to spill the beans on the Legion of Boom, but not so jacked up for two weeks of questions about playing his former team.

“I’m excited about it, very excited about it,” he said.

As for the defending champs they know a repeat won’t be easy against a Pats team clicking on all-cylinders.

“They’re figuring out a way to get an advantage. The thing they did last week with the extra eligible man with the numbers was a good tactic. It makes you stay on your toes,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.
