smith touchdownIn this episode of the Red Light Sports Ramble, Evan and Troy talk about Super Bowl XLVIII and recap how the Seattle Seahawks dismantled the Denver Broncos.  The talk all week was about the high-powered Denver Bronco offense vs. the stingy, hard-hitting Seattle Seahawks defense.  Well, when all was said and done, the Seattle Seahawks proved once again that defense does win Championships.  It was a convincing 43-8 victory, and a game that was at no point even close.

On the first play from scrimmage, Peyton Manning stepped up to bark out a familiar cadence and the ball was snapped past him into the end zone for a safety.  That would be as close as the Denver Broncos would get all day.  The number one offense didn’t gain a first down until the second quarter and by that time the hole was already getting deep.  Before the Broncos scored their first points, the hole was already being filled up because it was 36-0 and it was just a matter of time before the ticker tape would fall for the Seattle Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks defense came to play and disrupted Peyton Manning and the Denver offense all day.  They forced four turnovers and Malcolm Smith (The games MVP) returned an interception 69 yards which made the score 22-0 at halftime.  If the Broncos had any chance to get back in this game, it would be to come out of halftime; stop the Seahawks, get the ball back, and score.  Well, Percy Harvin crushed any hopes the Broncos had of getting back in this game with an 87 yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the second half.  The party was starting in Seattle after that play, and the defense had no let done all night.

Listen to the boys talk about Super Bowl XLVIII and what they thought about the game on this episode of the Red Light Sports Ramble.

    Seattle won the game in the draft. In Pete Carrol time of 4 years they. he was responsible for 34 players on the roster. Seattle has 7 player on this team with over 7 years of experience. This team is young and are looking to play together for a long time.

    Seattle has a nice mixture of veteran pick ups. They have 3 former USC players and another 7 players they they play in the USC schedule. The MVP has 4 years with Carroll at USC and another 3 years with the sea-hawks

    The Special team was typical of Denver. Their Denver KR has a lot of fumbles, and I was not surprise to see one in the game., Denver OL played great in this game, only giving up one sack to the Sea hawks. Denver has the best OL in the NFL but it was Manning nervous feet that did him in.

    I was glad the QB didnt win the SB MVP. If Wilson had won the MVP it may have cost the team like 100 million in a contract. There no real need to over pay the QB when he ranks 27th in the league. A 100 Million dollar QB kills most team chance for repeating

    If Seattle is smart they wont over pay Richard Sherman CB in a contract similar to what Brandon Carr was paid. In Seattle it about the system in place that develops the player. Seattle has the right system of drafting and developing players. If I am Seattle I build the team around the defense, and not at the QB. I rather trade the QB than over pay a player for being average at best , at 27th rated.

    The SB was the play between Seattle and SF. In many way SF lost this game, having over played Seattle through most of that game.. The Box score showed 308 Yards each but it was the Turnover 3 to 1 that cost SF the game.

    I have yet to see anyone stop Kapernick other than himself in the championship games. If you study The SF Offense Kapermick is the 30th rated QB, but it is his legs that makes him unstoppable.. Now why would SF try to win with his Arm against NFL top defense

    Wow I just found out that John Snyder came from the GB staff. That is 3 former packers doing special things in the NFL as GM on other teams. John Dorey has the Chief back in the playoffs, McKenzie has Oakland back on tract cutting 80 million off of payroll, and Snyder just won the SB in Seattle. It no wonder why GB was his measuring stick.

    It also no wonder why GB has done less in the draft of lately too.
