Agreed. TB had some great defenses. But those were older guys too mostly - in the league 5-7 years so we knew a lot of their names. One wonders if Seattle is mostly "no names" because (a) they are on the west coast and not east coast and (b) most are 2-3 year players. Maybe some of these Seattle guys will be a lot better known in 3 years...dunno.
Super Bowl Open Thread
Seahawks this year have often reminded me of the so-so Jim McMahon, team defense model.
Seattle could be up even more if they did not get stymied in the red zone more. THought the San Fran Seattle winner would win this game but thought it would be like 24-17 type of game. Pretty incredible start for Seattle.
So the first four drives for Denver:
Safety, three and out, Int, and Int. That's not too good.
Hey Peyton your guys are wearing orange not white LOL
If Eli available to sub in for Peyton? #JustAsking
I suddenly desire pistachios
I'm gonna give you an ominous stat: Denver usually loses when they trail 22-0 at half.
The half isn't over yet. It could get worse.
Peyton's getting spanked. I'm loving it
Mayweathers 10.5 mil on the Broncos not looking too god right now...
Largest comeback in SB history?
This is an old school Super Bowl blowout. Like many of the ones I remember growing up.
This game blows.
and apparently so do ours.
Boy this james sucks.
That looks like it will be reversed. 2 Ints for the Denver, a botched snap, and two close calls on fumbles.
Does any body give Peyton a chance ?
Considering Baltimore was up 22 last year yeah.
Never count out Pointman Peyton.
Yeah, I do. There are 2-3 QBs in the league I would say could mount a comeback under this situation, and Peyton is one of them (Brady, Rodgers being the other two).
There's a reason that defense wins championships.
What is the reason? ;)
Denver has kept their D off the field for most of the 2nd quarter.
We have been spoiled by SBs of late... lots of competitive games. Growing up in the 80s and 90s they mostly sucked :)
Unless you were a fan of the 49ers, Giants, Redskins or Cowboys.... yeah that period sucked. The NFC Championship game was the Super Bowl.
haha another good one
Super Bowl XLVIII is probably Peyton Manning's funniest commercial yet. He's very self-deprecating.
I don't like that call by Fox at all.
Google facts tweeted a 10 pt deficit has never been overcome in the SB. Interesting.
Wrong, the Saints trailed 10-0 in XLIV
Does Seattle sit on it now.
Man this defense is awesome to watch
Toyota wins the competition.
muppets take the lead in the commercials race.
I guess the game's over, because I saw Muppets.
Fun to watch
I just love this game so far. So happy to see Avril doing well too!
Skittles. This half is over. Thought Harvin might get a chance wide but no.
