    1. Get a life
    2. Yes
    3. Yes
    4. No
    5. Harvin’s run back

  2. Next up 18 and 0. This feels real good. Kam should be mvp. Kam sets a tone like no one.

  3. SnakeDoctor says:

    1. Living here in Clearwater Fl, I rang my ship brass bell outside (it’s loud :-)). Smoking a FINE cigar and drinking a Chivas!
    2. You bet Malcom Smith came up big and deserved it!!!
    3. Yes I do believe. San Fran could not get it done last year (giggle, giggle) and the LOB brought it!!!! As long as they can keep the core together!
    4. Actually yes I did expect a blow out. Just hoping it wasn’t the other way. Too many pun dent’s with a close score.
    5. Percy after halftime run back. Awesome but I am biased (gater fan and a husky) Can’t wait to see what they can do with him next year !!!!!!

    We are the Champions Of the World !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Southendzone says:

    It’s like 1,000 bricks have been lifted from my shoulders. I can finally forgive and release ancient grudges due to injustice, bad luck, bad teams.

    Testaverde bogus TD? WHO CARES?
    Fredd Young non-INT call in Houston playoff game? WHO CARES?
    Steve Hutchinson fiasco? WHO CARES?
    49er fans and their ridiculous billboard in Fife? WHO CARES?
    Even, the worse of all, Superbowl 40? WHO CARES?

    NOT ME!

    We needed this . We deserved this. Thank god for Paul Allen, and everyone in this organization.

    Been a huge Seahawk fan since I was 6 years old. I’m now 39 years old. This is a huge moment for me. #1 on my bucket list is to see the chawks win a Superbowl, I saw it baby!!!!!

  6. JRocket says:

    What a great season to be a Seahawks fan! I hope this is the beginning of many more championship years.

  7. CDHawkFan says:

    They finally played the game we all thought they could play.

    Off to bed now, it’s 3:45 am.

  8. 1. Walk around with a goofy grin on my face for a long time.

    2. Could have gone with Kam but I think Smith was the right choice.

    3. I hope so!

    4. I hoped for it and thought it could happen but not to the magnitude of 43-8. Nobody on this blog expected it to be that extreme.

    5. Either the Kam or the Smith INTs.

  9. TallyHawk says:

    Hellllllllllll yyyyyyeeeesssssss!!!!!!!

    1. Enjoy it!!!!
    2. The whole D deserved it. After Malcolm recovered the fumble I told my wife he’d get it.
    3. They are set up to have a chance. NFC west is going to be tough though.
    4. No
    5. First snap over Peyton’s head. It was over after that!

    Enjoy it 12th man!! Forget about dynasty or next year. We have waited so long for this just enjoy!! It’s so f’ing sweet!!!!!

  10. ChrisHolmes says:

    1. Read everything written about their blowout win in the next 48 hours. Sorry real life job!

    2. MVP needs to be dismissed for this team. It was EVERYONE. Every guy made a play! I loved it! But I’m fine with Smith. How do you pick an MVP for this game anyway? In all honesty: I figured if Seattle won, and I figured if they won BIG, that there would be no realistic way to pick an MPV. Because I figured if Seattle did what they have done ALL YEAR to win this game, they’d do it AS A TEAM. Which means every guy making a play. And that is EXACTLY what happened. And I am so thrilled. Every guy made a play.

    3. Yes.

    4. Hoped. Didn’t expect. But hoped. I knew this much: History has shown us that in Superbowls, the better team, when they roll, they roll big. I felt if Pete could get these guys focused on what they need to do, they’d do it. And they did. Big plays, big turnovers, big special teams. And big hits. Denver didn’t catch a pass without getting punished. We played OUR game.

    5. Harvin returning the kickoff to start the 2nd half. It was over at that point. But there were SO MANY BIG PLAYS! Kearse’s pinball touchdown! Malcom Smith’s pick-6 after Avril forced the errant throw! The long pass to Baldwin on a perfect arc by Wilson! It was all awesome!

  11. man, thanks to everyone on here – – didn’t have a single drink the entire game, but am on my way to correct that now – – – WE DID IT!

    wouldn’t have dared to dream it would all turn out like this.

    Super Bowl Champions. Been a long long long time coming. Damn

  12. 1. Your team has just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?

    Oh geez I don’t know – be happy!!! Hug a bunch of people!!!

    2. Malcolm Smith was named MVP, do you agree with the choice?
    I would have gone with Kam – but Smith was a great choice as well

    3. Do you believe this to be the beginning of a dynasty?

    Gotta see what they do with the core . . . . .

    4. Did you at all expect a blowout? NOT AT ALL!!!!

    5. Play of the game for you? OMG I can’t pick one. Smith Pick 6

  13. Skavage says:

    There’s a million things I could say but I am only going to say this…

    Seahawks…Thank you.


    A 12th Man

  14. Marasim says:

    For me, Smith is good choice. Can be Kam, Wilson, Baldvin, Harvin, Kearse, Avril. All make they mark.
    And for play of the game, well, first hit that we make on Manning. Think was Clemons. From that moment he start to feel uncomfortable in pocket.

  15. TallyHawk says:

    Is anyone going to sleep tonight? I’m so jacked up right now I don’t know how if I can sleep. After two weeks of BS I can’t get enough post game coverage. I might even watch the game again! This is f’ing awesome!!!!!!

  16. Macabrevity says:

    1. Gotta go to work after a 12:30am start which lasted me all night long.

    2. Yep, he made the play (with some help) that let me stop worrying and start enjoying it.

    3. If we can keep LOB in Seattle, then you bet!

    4. I was too nervous to even think about expectations, but had I been more objective, it should’ve been obvious.

    5. Malcolm’s pick to end the half… (tied with Percy’s KO return to start the 3rd Q)

  17. This week on east coast radio they were saying wilson was the worst QB ever in Super bowl . So wrong . Wilson was mvp in my mind.

  18. RDPoulsbo says:

    1: Very drunk, but somehow have to wake up and go to work at 5:30a tomorrow. Surprisingly, the party in Poulsbo was bigger against the 49ers than now.

    2: Smith is deserving, but I’d go with Kam Chancellor.

    3: Yes.

    4: Nope. My expectation was 27-17. The fumble out the end zone on the 1st play of scrimmage threw out all my predictions.

    5: Kam’s interception.

  19. Mildly disappointing that Avril and Bennett are lobbying for a pay raise right now on TV – everyone knows you want it and deserve it – ENJOY!!! with the team

  20. This is insane. I love it.

    I doubted Wilson on occasion. He kicked ass when it mattered.

  21. seahawks12thman says:


  22. So glad I have tomorrow off!! So glad my boys could experience this in their teens! Lucky……

  23. bird_spit says:

    Seattle deserves this…

  24. Newborough says:

    1. Blasting Queens “We are the Champions” at high volume (it’s 5 am here, luckily the neighbors live a way off)

    2. Yes, Smith is a worthy MVP. So many could have got it though with no complaints

    3. If the young players (and their agents) put success and happiness before extracting maximum dollars it could happen. Tough to win the West every year though

    4. No, I expect a close hard fought match

    5. The two big plays either side of half-time, especially Percys return – that took all the wind out of Denver and trashed any thoughts they might have had that they could quickly get back into the game and make a fight of it

    Go Hawks! Super Bowl Champs at last, after following them for over thirty years

  25. Radem44 says:

    I am the only one who wishes the 2013 Hawks could play the 2005 Stealers? If tonight was any indication it would be a massacre!

  26. edstang45 says:

    Finally…what a great win…wow guys what a great day!!!!!! hell yea dynasty is the next goal right..This is a bad ass team..they know it we know the whiners know it… awesome awesome awesome

  27. If we can keep the core together we can compete for the Super bowl for the next 5-7 years

  28. juliusvrooder says:

    1- Mas Tequila!
    2- Smith or Kearse, and I say that as a Coug…
    3- yes
    4- called a 10 pt win
    5- Percy at the half. I dreamed it four days ago…

    I watched Q-4 with my son, age 12. I told him I watched every Seahawks game with my dad from 1976 (when I was 11) until he died in 2005. My son said, ‘I am glad Grandpa had better seats than us.’

  29. mocarob says:

    Next time Seahawks, Use lube.

  30. 1) hang out with my preggo wife and my kid–just like during the game.

    2) I’m ok with it; I felt Avril deserved it more: he caused both picks etc..

    3) Too early yet; too many impending Free Agents.

    4) no.

    5) Smith pick six. The Avr/ Chancellor pick. Kearses Td. Lynch TD, then Harvins.

  31. 1. Your team has just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?

    Rock out with my hawk(pride)out!

    2. Malcolm Smith was named MVP, do you agree with the choice?

    There were about 5 guys who they could have gone with, and I
    wouldn’t have argued with any of them. (CA,KC,RW,PH,MS)

    3. Do you believe this to be the beginning of a dynasty?

    Even considering how good we are and how young we are, that’s not a
    word to throw around lightly to me. It takes good fortune to avoid
    major injuries to key players, and things like that you really can’t
    control. Maybe after we win another one next year, we can talk

    4. Did you at all expect a blowout?

    I can’t say that I expected one, to be honest. I had a feeling,
    and I hoped it would be like this if everything clicked.
    But it turned out better than I ever could have hoped for.

    5. Play of the game for you

    Malcolm Smith pick-6 was when I started to get that good feeling
    that tonight was our night and we were not going to be denied.
    38 years 12th man, enjoy this night! Go Hawks!

  32. Juliusvrooder–I hate Church. That was a cool comment by your son. Enjoy this day!!

  33. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Can we start talking about a dynasty now? Lol.

    And thanks to all the great Seahawk fans on this blog. it’s been a long but rewarding ride.

  34. Where’s Mo?! Dude I love U!

    Montanamike2–Wish I was in Bozeman!! Enjoy!!!

  35. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I’m going to bed now. I hope I don’t wake up in the morning and discover this was all a dream. Lol.

  36. juliusvrooder says:

    STTBM- Not a big church guy these days myself.
    Love my kid. Miss my dad. Thanx bro, or sis.


  37. seahawk44 says:

    This feels so good!

    Please, can someone tell me when the parade is? I must go! Gotta make travel plans fast!

    I became a fan of this team on Nov. 8, 1981. Nearly 33 years ago, when I was an 11 year old, bandwagon Steelers fan, I saw a little QB named Zorn throwing to a little WR named Largent, and a game when the Steelers were up 21 to 3 on this team that played in a dome in the city of Seattle, WA. came back and won that game 24-21 with the help of their very loud, passionate fans taking Terry Bradshaw out of his game…..I then proclaimed myself a Seahawks fan. I was loyal through the worst of seasons. Team was blessed with Paul Allen as owner. Championship longtime coming.

    Let the Dynasty begin!

    Go Hawks.

  38. Southendzone says:

    Hawk44, parade Wednesday at 11am

  39. MikeFromNewJersey says:

    My smile will last forever:)))

  40. seahawk44 says:

    You are positive, Southendzone? info link?

  41. SmalltownHawk says:

    1. Your team has just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?
    Take in every scrap of media information and enjoy the feeling for the next 2 weeks.

    2. Malcolm Smith was named MVP, do you agree with the choice?
    I would have picked Chancellor, but Smith was a great choice also.

    3. Do you believe this to be the beginning of a dynasty?
    Waaay too early to talk about this. I hope to look back in 10 years and see that this was the beginning of a dynastic run, but we will have to wait and see.

    4. Did you at all expect a blowout?
    Absolutely not. I thought it would come down to the final minute.

    5. Play of the game for you?
    Chancellor’s interception, Smith’s pick-6, Harvin’s run back, Kearse’s TD. Just too many to pick only one.

    There was a lot of talk about Harvin playing in the Superbowl: If he does well and competes like a champ, he may wipe out all of the uncertainty we had about him all season long. Well, I think that Harvin earned his Superbowl ring tonight and showed us why the FO went after him like they did.

    Superbowl XLVIII Champions!!!

  42. EzraMelech says:

    1. Your team has just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?

    Celebrate like crazy.

    2. Many people could have gotten it. It was a team effort. To be honest though, I thought Russell Deserved it. He’s been ragged on by many all season and he played lights out. No he didn’t put up the kind of stats many Quarterbacks do, but with our system thats not what he is asked to do. But he played magical tonight IMHO.

    3. Do you believe this is the beginning of a dynasty?
    I think it definitely has a chance, were a young team and I LOVE our Coach. His Philosophy everything. I have a feeling especially after the Super Bowl win, Free agents will be much more willing to come to us, maybe even for less $$ then some other teams.

    4. Did I expect a blowout?
    not as much as we did, but YES I knew we would win decisively.

    5. Play of the Game? Percy’s Kickoff Return. It pretty much took the wind out of any hope Denver might have had coming out of 1/2 time.

  43. hawkfan777 says:

    I have to agree with what STTBM and others have said on here for the last several weeks. The offense sucks. We will never get anything good done with this team as long as Russell Wilson continues to suck so badly.

    Maybe we should trade for a different quarterback this off season. So we will do better next year.

    Hopefully they do something because I cant take another year like this sucky year.

  44. montanamike2 says:

    STTBM i just got home and no property damage, thank god we won… We Won!!!! Hell ya! Good thing i have a designated driver.

  45. 1. Gonna be reading all the sportswriters, especially those who predicted a Broncos win.
    2. MVP doesn’t compute with this team. The coaches, staff, 12th man and offense, defense and special teams won this championship. Still, Smith had a great game and I’m ecstatic for him! I’m also so proud of KC, RW, ML, the OL and our WRs today!
    3. The NFCW is just getting tougher and tougher. SEA is picking last in the draft and STL has the #2 and 13 first round picks. AZ & SF will also pick well ahead of SEA. SEA goes against the NFC division winners and had some injuries this season, but maybe less than we might have. SEA has lotsa great UFA players that other teams are gonna overpay to get on their rosters. Still, with PA, PC/JS, and Quinn/Bevell/Cable, et al, and one of the youngest rosters in the NFL, SEA should just get better and better.
    4. NO!!! I believed SEA was gonna win, but thought it wouldda been closer. (Slap my forehead) I shouldda known that SEA would improve on the 40-10 preseason outcome!
    5. PH’s return for a TD was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever watched from anyone in a Seahawk’s jersey.

  46. thursday says:

    I had a feeling that it could be a blowout, depending on some things. Those things clearly happened. I was a little confused about Malcom Smith, I kinda thought maybe Kam. But maybe I’m not remembering some other plays…

    Percy Harvin runback was the play of the game to me, mostly because I was telling everyone all week that he would do exactly that.

    This is amazing, but it’s also so completely deserved and honestly, expected. This wasn’t a team that was gonna choke at the end.

  47. montanamike2 says:

    I predicted a 31-13 win for us.

  48. SmalltownHawk says:

    Can anyone tell me what Russell Wilson’s passer rating was for the game? I can’t seem to find it anywhere.

  49. montanamike2 says:

    I was super proud to wear my #31 Chancellor jersey.

  50. MoSeahawk12 says:

    I’m just catching up with lifelong friends that are so excited and thrilled for me and all of us lifelong Seahawks fans. My wife, a die hard 9er fan…didn’t know this when we met, so I give her a pass posted a really cool comment on facebook about Charlie Brown finally kicking the ball. She has always busted my chops that the Seahawks are Charlie Brown and the rest of the league is Lucy and as we all know, Lucy always pulls the ball away at the last minute and Charlie Brown falls on his back. Not this year. Charlie Brown knocked the shisnit otta that ball!!

    Massive domination!! No bad weather excuses. No bad call excuses. No lucky bounce excuses. Our Seahawks just played one of the most impressive, dominant Superbowls against the highest scoring team in NFL history, and gave up 8 points. Eight points? Think about that you guys. This was complete domination of the best the AFC could field and we mopped the field with them. Our second year QB missed a couple of throws early, but threaded the needle the rest of the game, from the pocket. All I read was that Russell couldn’t beat you from the pocket.

    They shut down Lynch. Didn’t matter. Our O-line sucked. Didn’t matter. Zero sacks given up today. Zero. Percy was a bust cause they paid too much for a player that wasn’t tough. He was balls on fire today. The second half kickoff return was amazing. John Clayton felt we should protect Percy and keep him off returns. Glad coach Pete plays to win and doesn’t listen to those that don’t know how to. Percy showed us what we have and will be a major factor in….say it with me…defending our Superbowl title next season!!

    I’ve been cheering my heart and soul for this team since I was ten years old. That was a long time ago and this feels so great. I’ve laughed, cried and won’t be losing this smile for a long. long time.

    Congratulations to all of you. Doesn’t matter if you are long time fans like me and many here, or relativity new fans that found this team over the past few years and now call it you own. Today, we are champions. Today, we all won it ALL!! Enjoy every second of that.

  51. 1. Go have lunch. It was 5am here in Bangkok when i had to get up and take a taxi to some dive half way across town to watch the game live. Raucous place, about split between Branco and Hawks.

    2. No clear dominate mvp winner. Malcolm is as good a choice as any. Team effort.

    3. Dynasties are hard to maintain, so we will see. This is when John Schneider will really show his value, keeping the core together.

    4. No

    5. Harvin return sealed it.

  52. DanielleMND says:

    I’ve been a fan of the Seattle Seahawks for 34 years. I’ve been waiting a long time to see them win an NFL championship. How sweet it is.

  53. Hawkfan77–I love RW, It’s just I’m not blind. There’s a reason Carrol didnt trust Wilson to win this game. Wilson is a very good qb, but he’s not Great. But who cares?! We’re SB Champions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. chuck_easton says:

    :) :) :) :)

    After 37 long years of being a diehard Seahawk fan even through the 2-14 season…I think that sums up everything I want to say.

  55. 1: Enjoy the moment, crack my bottle of Johnny Walker Blue and watch the ghosts of the previous 38 years disappear. (Especially 2006)
    2: No, Wilson should have been MVP
    3: Yes
    4: No
    5: Harvin’s kickoff return, but the look on Manning’s face when the ball sailed past him was priceless.

  56. Wow, I’ve always wanted to try Johnny Blue… Never found a small bottle…enjoy!

  57. thursday says:

    This is definitely just the beginning. I am suddenly super excited for the next season. I say we go back!

  58. Congratulations to all on this blog for our fantastic win! I was glad to see Malcolm get the award, though as others point out, it was a team effort. I’ve been following the team for 33 years and still find it kind of hard to believe we won. But what a delicious win. Peyton Manning is probably one of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game, but somehow our defense made him suck. And I’m so glad the monkey is off our backs. Off of Pete’s back, too. This win has vindicated his approach as a football coach. Great feelings all around.

  59. EzraMelech says:

    STTBM: Of course RW isn’t a GREAT Quarterback “YET” he’s only a 2nd year after all. What Quarterback in history was great in their 2nd year. Answer: ZERO. That being said, Russell Wilson is the Winningest Quarterback in History in first 2 years. Now even that is a team effort, but still.

    Last but not least, RW plays for a team with a focus and belief in a RUN 1st philosophy. So we can’t expect him to put up Goudy numbers. Has he been perfect? No, but again he’s 2nd year.

    I appreciate people’s personal opinions, thats what the blog is about. But come on be real in your analysis at least. RW is a VERY VERY good Quarterback, with a chance to be great. Look at not only what he’s done so far, but his intangibles and his dedication. To use one of his Quotes, separation is in the preparation. You know what I believe it’s true. And Russell prepares as well if not better then anyone, INCLUDING Peyton.


  60. MVP HAD to go to a defensive player- they set the tone. The entire game – the offense was damn good- the defense might have been the best unit ever in the SB

  61. JZombie says:

    For a moment after that kickoff return I was wondering if I’d have to tweet out that I hoped Harvin would let Smith test drive his new vehicle that comes with the MVP award. Might be the other way around now, but it was a team performance on both sides.

    Gotta hand it to Todd for his work covering the team this season. First season on this beat and it’s capped off with a super bowl win.

    I’m thinking of calling in a missing persons report for Bruce Irvin. Didn’t notice if his name was called at all, and it’s been a while since I’ve seen him make a big play.

  62. jetrent says:

    Amazing- congrats TNT bloggers. This night is ours forever!

  63. MoSeahawk12 says:

    I think Carroll did trust Wilson to win this game and he came up huge. Missed a couple of easy throws early, but was deadly from the pocket and made the Broncos pay. They did a great job slowing Lynch and Wilson had to be the difference maker. Wilson had a high completion %, huge QB rating, two TD’s and was smart with zero turnovers or sacks. Manning had more yards, but was very Krapernick with three turnovers. The second year QB that is too short out played the future Hall of Fame QB and it wasn’t even close. Of course, Manning had to play against our D and Wilson was able to go against a D not in the top ten for the first time in almost two months. Only three other QBs have EVER won a SB in their second year. He now has more wins than any QB EVER…as in the history of the NFL for a second year player. I’m going to go out on a limb and say he’s pretty good.

  64. fijihawksfan says:

    I can die happy now. It has been a long wait since 1976, but it was worth it. I was a season ticket holder until Ken Bering came along and ruined the team. Thank you Paul Allen, Pete Carroll, John Schneider and all the players. What a job . . . what a team . . . what a game!

  65. To say Pete Carrol does not trust Wilson is just wrong any way you look at it and on the night of our first superbowl win it is way wrong. 206 yards 26 running 123 rating and zero interception no fumbles.

  66. MoSeahawk12 says:

    Just watched Kam on ESPN and just love the guy. So humble and dynamic as a player. When Ronnie Lott compared him to Kenny Easley earlier in the week it was a incredibly strong complement and endorsement from a Hall of Fame safety that knows the game and played during Easley’s era. Listening to Kam and watching his game as he came in a few years ago, I can without hesitation or doubt say he is the best.
    Keith Jackson of ESPN just said our D and this team can be dominant for the next 6-7 years! The window just opened. They are heaping massive praise on our guys.

  67. SmalltownHawk says:

    One thing I have noticed this year is that our defense absolutely dominated the screen passes from offenses all year long. Tonight was no exception. Watching Maxwell split two blockers on a screen and tackle the receiver BEHIND the line of scrimmage was just special:)

  68. GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!!!

    A fan since the beginning, and we finally got one. Couldn’t be more happy for the city of Seattle…, the fans who have supported the Seahawks from the beggining, my hat goes off to us.

    Let’s do it again next year, here in Arizona, so I can go see us win again.

    Seattle fan, now living in Tempe.

  69. MoSeahawk12 says:

    I’m in Gilbert doubter. I’m thinkin we need to raise a glass one of these days. Long time fan and so proud of this team. Played lights out and dominated the best offense in all of football.

  70. jawpeace says:

    . Your team has just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?
    I think the adrenaline has finally worn off and I can go to bed with a big smile, have sweet dreams replaying the game in my mind.

    2. Malcolm Smith was named MVP, do you agree with the choice?
    I liked him winning it. During the week many were talking about the Sherman tip and could not even remember Smith name. Saying, “Remember the linebacker who ran hard to make the INT.” Which I thought was funny as they never said his name just the “linebacker”. So for all the limelight that he did not receive he was due.

    3. Do you believe this to be the beginning of a dynasty?
    Lets not talk dynasty yet. How about our theme for 2014 season be “REPEAT with Pete!”

    4. Did you at all expect a blowout?

    5. Play of the game for you?
    First play so loud PM could not hear! He was not ready for the 12! And the look on his0 face- ah priceless!

  71. seahawkNJ says:

    1. Stop reading Seattle Seahawks blogs. Stop hitting NYC bars.
    2. No, the entire D, but I think they all know that, but good choice.
    3, Yes
    4. Yes, but was afraid to say it out loud. I pedicted 2 blowouts this year. The Rams in St Lois and Saints in Seattle. Both were tight so I fogured I should shut up.
    5, PH kick return.

  72. The game was great fun to watch, even with worrying about Peyton making the comeback he never did. It’s very annoying to read sportswriters saying it was one of the worst Super Bowls, ever. If Denver had won by the same margin, there would be nothing but high praise for the game that Peyton dominated. Guess the Seahawks will have to keep winning SB’s until they get recognition.

    Small note, but it was great to see Tarvaris and a few of the other depth guys get a few snaps at the end.

    I can’t say I’ve watched since a kid, as my early memories are of Hugh McElhenny at the UW, but to say that this is a thrill to compare with any, is an understatement.

    Watched the game at the Archer in Fairhaven (Bellingham), and it was crazy. Bedlam and delirium, with chanting and good friends. A milestone.

    I’m still awake. I’ve watched coverage all night on multiple networks. I can’t get enough of it.

    1. Soak in the moment, what a season! What a game!

    2. Great choice! Kam could have got it too, or Harvin.. a true team effort!

    3. I think it could be, with Schneider & Pete at the helm I have faith in their ability to retain cornerstones and recruit/develop new talent.

    4. I expected a close game, but as I said all week.. if it’s a blowout it’s going to be Seattle doing the blowing out. I really didn’t see what a lot of the national talking heads saw predicting a possible blowing for the Broncos

    5. Only one?!

  78. banosser says:

    Read some place last nite that this was the most dominant defensive effort in Super Bowl history… This cements this defense as at least top 5 all time… probably top 3

    What a game! When Harvin ran that kick off back I told my wife I should leave right now and go by a Power Ball ticket..

    Congrats 12s!! It was very enjoyable last night emailing/texting all my buddys who had given me shit over the yrs and esp this last week..

    It doesn’t make up for XL… but it is REALLY close

    1. Savor a the greatest football game I’ve seen in 37 years.
    2. Malcolm Smith, 7th round draft choice, pick the end the 49ers season, pick and fumble recovery in the SB…yes, absolutely. I’m really happy for him, and he’ll be the poster boy for 7th round picks in Seattle for a very long time.
    3. One of the youngest teams to ever win the SB…Dynasty here we come!
    4. Yes, I expected a blow out but underestimated our defense a bit. See prediction below.
    5. Three plays, offense, defense, ST. Kearse double spin TD, Malcom’s Pick 6, Harvin’s TD Return

    Pre-game prediction:

    “47 – 24 Seahawks!
    ML over 100 yards 1 TD,
    Harvin 2TD and over 200 yards total yardage,
    Baldwin 1 TD
    Tate 1 TD
    Kearse 1 TD
    RW throws for over 300 yards, runs for 80 yards…
    Richard Sherman 1 pick,
    Byron Maxwell 1 pick,
    Earl Thomas 1 pick
    KJ Wright 1 pick…
    Michael Bennett Strip sack,
    Manning 4 sacks…
    Wilson SB MVP

  80. Guys, you are taking my comments wrong. Carrol trusts RW, he just didn’t want to put the game on his shoulders; and with the D and Special Teams, he didn’t have to.

    Rw played a great game. He missed a couple throws and looked like he was thinking too much a couple times, but make no mistake, he played very well.

    He has a ways to go to be elite, IMO, but who cares? It’s arguing over semantics…And I agree, his intangibles/leadership is off the charts! It will be awesome to watch his career!

    SB winner in year two! How bout that!

  81. banosser says:

    I don’t want RW to be ‘elite’… I want him to be just as he is.. someone who can do whatever it takes to win.. by motivation, performance.. heart.. Elite means we’ll have to pay him $20+m/yr.. and that will gut this team.. I want him to be very very good.. 200 yd pass/gm.. scramble for 1st downs when needed.. scramble to extend plays.. be highly efficient, but not ‘elite’ as definied by most media which is throwing for mega yrds & TDs.. Elite QBs have the wt of the entire team on their shoulders.. PM, Brady, Brees etc.. I want him to be ‘elite’ to us.. not to everyone else.. I hope he eventually will sign for <$15M/yr.. but that is for another day
