I'm glad it went to a defensive player.  Not trying to take anything away from their offense, but their defense was just AMAZING.  Wherever the ball went, there they were.  Incredible.  The better team won, no question about it.

Suck it haters!!!

I was more worried about playing the 49ers than I was the Broncos.

49ers fans. I think Seattle and San Fran are the two best teams in the NFL. Cant wait to play you guys next season!

I'm so damn happy. This city deserves this championship. What a complete team.

Peyton Manning is still one of the best QB's to ever touch a football. Mad respect to him.

No question about it, they earned it.  The offense didn't seem to have any trouble putting points on the board, but seriously that defense.  They just SWARMED the ball.  Wherever the ball went, there were 2 or 3 of them right there the second it was delivered.  Just amazing.

I've been partying all god damn night. I am usually not one to gloat. Actually I usually hate it, but people have been sleeping on this team all year. The last two weeks its been a Seahawks diss party and a Peyton Manning Fellatio fest.

Peyton wasn't responsible for choking this game away alone. That whole team blew it from the players to the coaches. As much as people love to hang it on Manning. I respect that guy a lot. Anyone but the Seahawks and I would have rooted for Manning

His offensive tackles were atrocious. Those d tackles/ends dominated the pass rush and on those bubble screens that pey pey uses to help with pressure somehow the same defenders would beat the pass to the outside and blow up the play

This. Smith's pick-six was the real moment where you knew the Broncos were farked. He deserved it. Wilson did well, but the defense was just so amazing one of them had to get it, and Smith's pick six was the biggest impact.

Although Harvin could've gotten it, too, without me complaining.

Right...it's easy to say you don't gloat when your team hasn't done anything in the history of ever.

That's like saying Browns and Chargers fans don't like to gloat.

49ers fans. I think Seattle and San Fran are the two best teams in the NFL. Cant wait to play you guys next season!

I'm more interested in seeing how Seattle and San Fran change the league.  They both proved if you don't have to pay your QB anything you can build the best teams in football.  But who are we kidding, Kap and Wilson aren't taking less than 15 mil when their contracts come up barring RGkneeing it.

Pretty much all of their TDs came on short fields, from the fumbles and interceptions Denver was just gifting like candy.  Until around the 4th quarter, Wilson's stats were fairly "pathetic" (something like 90 yards to peytons 200+).  Their offense was really nothing to write home about, but they did the one thing offenses have to do.  NOT FARK UP.

Seattle was doing what it had to do on offense, they chewed up that clock and the Denver defense was dead by the 4th quarter. Stats dont win championships, players do
 
2014-02-03 09:21:46 AM  
I thought Wilson had a great game. When he had to throw it, he threaded the needle or made the correct read within 2 seconds.

Why are we trying to belittle the offense again?

I dont think after all the salaries and contracts are negotiated how can they possibly keep all these guys. Unless these guys all want to make less money to stay for another championship. I think one more Superbowl is realistic, not likely but realistic. I think Golden Tate may be gone though.

Nothing has changed, it is easier to build a mediocre team and pay a QB a boatload of money then pick up a couple receivers than to build a very good team all around. More importantly, that QB with a boatload of money can keep you competitive after the rest of your team gets gutted when negotiating the next round of salaries.

Seattle was awesome. But the story of that game was unforced errors - the bad snap of course, and then manning's first pick was atrocious. I think seattle was going to win  no matter what yesterday but I'd hoped for a better game. Worst performance by a super bowl team in recent memory. The head down blind arm tackling made me want to play benny hill music.  After that nfc championship game I was really ready to see a great game. Oh well. Good job hometown boys.

LOL, took the words out of my mouth.
Niners would have beat the Broncos as well. I knew their defense was bad but not that bad.  We won as a TEAM and it feels great.
The entire PNW deserves to hold this trophy.  Can't wait till next year.  GO HAWKS
I feel for Champ and Peyton as well.  I'd rather have destroyed the Patriots.

Peyton never should have thrown that pick six - he should have just taken the sack.

Brett Favre's most interceptions in NFL history or Peyton Manning's most playoff losses in NFL history?

I think they will all, or mostly all come back. Some will sacrifice money for  a chance at a second championship. The Seahawks have that Team mentality. This is a sport where free agency is about getting paid. These guys love playing together and they know they have a chance to come back and make another run at it. I'd be surprised if any of them left right now.

I am a Seahawks fan, but honestly I love Peyton Manning. However Manning being the best regular season QB and the worst post season QB in history will go down as a very bad legacy for Manning. He needed that second ring badly.

I guess the next question is if they're able to keep their star players while Carroll still having his luck/skill with scouting. I'm sure the recruiting pool widens a bit for getting fresh talent now that his way has some validation.

Given that they currently have the same number of rings, I'm going with Favre's.  Manning will likely break Favre's other records in the next two years but that interception record will stand for a long time.

It's not luck/skill with scouting.  It's an adaptation of sabermetrics, really.  The GM and Carroll both made a point of targeting large defensive backs as recruiting targets.  Large defensive backs are not high on most teams lists, because they lack straight speed, but today's NFL(particularly in the NFC West) is littered with large receivers and rules that hurt pure cover corners, so they went after tall people to bump and run and put into zones.  Since they're not high recruiting targets, they can get them later in the draft or on the free agent market on the cheap, until other teams do the same thing.

Kearse looked good enough last night to deserve more snaps next season. Tate's fun to watch as a poor man's Hines Ward, but I think he's expendable especially since he'll ask for a raise of some kind since's a FA. They should keep Baldwin, though. Between him and Tate, Baldwin is a better route runner.

dywed88: I certainly don't blame them. Short careers mean you got to get your money out while you can.


I don't blame them either. I'm just old and I've heard the same questions about a million times when a young team has success. Everyone will wonder if they'll be able to keep the team together down the road and if some of them will give discounts in order to stay in this special place with this special group of guys. The answer is they will be able to keep some of them if they get out their checkbook and none of the rest will give discounts. And neither would any of us.

The Seahawks run offense was about equal to the Denver run defense.
The Seahawks pass offense was WAY better than the Denver pass defense.

That is why the 'Hawks passed as often as they did even when up. The pass was far more likely to move the chains for them than the run.
