As you can imagine, I am more than a little depressed. If you follow me on Twitter you say a barrage of swear words and a tear soaked Bronco’s napkin.
I know that Seattle fans are obviously leaping up and down because their team is clearly the best in the league.
Forgive me for my lack of excitement.
I won’t do boring recap of what happened. Instead let’s take a look at the numbers of Super Bowl XLVIII.
The number of players on the Seahawks who had previously been a Super Bowl.
The amount of points that the Broncos managed to score. Something that no one could ever predict. Who would have thought the team with the most points scored, with the MVP and offensive player of the year would score only 8 points? Turns out that “defenses win championships” saying is a hundred percent accurate.
This number means two things. It was the moment you knew that the Broncos were not coming back and it proved the worth of Percy Harvin. It was the beginning of the third quarter and Prater kicked short, Harvin grabbed the ball, cut right, ran upfield and ran right through the middle of the Broncos. It brought the score to 29-0. It also validated the expense of a player that only played 19 snaps the entire season.
The amount of tears that Broncos and Peyton Manning fans shed last night.
