Super Bowl's, most years the particular games themselves tend to be lackluster. There's no real flow, lots of commercial breaks, and more often then not the players under perform it seems (just my opinion). The only game I can think of in recent years that had be entertained for most of the game, was when the Giants won with Eli a few years ago

The Seahawks will be ok for a while. Due to the new CBA Wilson is on his rookie contract until the end of 2016.

Lowest paid starter in the league. He will get his money though.

Can't win with a 1 dimensional offense against an elite defense.

Glad the S***hawks won. I'm a Cardinals fan but that division was insane this year. Best division in football this season, IMO. NFC was miles better than AFC all season long. Might get flamed for this, but I love Richard Sherman too. Kinda reminded me of the Revis Island this season, he shut so many top-notch receivers down it's sick.

That superblowout will be enough to get me through at least one more season of Oilers ineptitude. Feels good to have a successful team in any sport.

Now if only Bubba Watson didn't choke yesterday, then I'd be a truly happy man.

Regular season is for also rans and Sedins in any sport. Whether it be NFL playoffs, NHL playoffs, SC, World Cup, the greatest players in the game are defined when they win the trophy. With every other result left standing.

Nobody will ever be left thinking Marcel Dionne is one of the greatest hockey players to ever play the game even though statistically, in regular season he was. But when people consider greats he's not even in the conversation.

I don't have to know much about NFL football to know that if you don't get it done in the championship matches you won't endure.

Its just the way it is.

The field dimensions of the NFL game select for D over offense. Particularly given the speed and strength of todays defenders.
Its become even moreso a defenders game as more and more of the greatest teams and players are regarded for their D stars and what got them there.
We've travelled a longway from Joe Namath, Dan Marino, Joe Montana. The stars are aligned on the d side of the ball now imo.

That said offenses need to get more done. Denver offense had a net contribution to the game of something like -7. I don't know there was one instance in the game where they made a play to the Seahawks backfield to make them back off and respect any deep ability. They simply failed abjectly to do that. So a vaunted Seahawks D was able to swarm the house all day and be in the Broncs backfield all day making plays. How many Bronco running plays resulted in losses?

Seahawks were resetting the line of scrimmage on nearly every play. Broncos had to do something to get them to try to back off and never did.
