Peyton Manning’s latest postseason failure left a pothole in his legacy unfilled thanks to a Seattle defense that spoke volumes by rendering him moot.

so there was a article in the on line strib Saturday. Many of the sports reporters picked who they thought would win. They all picked Denver. What was that all about?

Consider this - TAVARIS JACKSON will now have a Super Bowl ring, and Dan Marino never will. There's something wrong with this planet.

Loved this SB. Defied the NFL formulas it was dominated by a defense, no QB worship required.

paulski, they thought that the team that scored over 600 points prior to this game - and was led by a 5-time league MVP - would beat a Seahawks team that had lost its last time at the Big Game. Many people - myself included - believed the same thing. Guess we should have remembered that the Broncos were also on the losing end of three of the biggest Super Bowl blowouts of all time.

The Broncos have lost more Super Bowls than the Vikings? Is this true? The Vikings and the Bills are loserest of the losers, right?

Great. Seattle and New Orleans now have Super Bowl wins and the Vikings still don't. That is so sad.

Ear2ground: yes the broncos have now lost more than Vikings and Buffalo, but they've been in more Super Bowls. I was looking at Super Bowl records on the Wikipedia site and it states that the Vikings never scored in any of the first halves of its 4 games. Can anybody verify that?

The Seahawk clobbering of Denver has a much bigger story to tell. The NFC is dominant in Pro Football Potency & that includes last years Super Bowl when San Fran was robbed of a TD in the final minute. More then just Typically the NFC in the NFL Rules almost always has. Denver played only 3 teams all year that was over 500. Offensive Player of the Year & MVP??? WHATEVER!!! Payton is a disgrace.

Seattle is a complete team. I'd like the Vikings GM to take note of this, and A. stop failing at choosing a QB; B. stop blowing draft picks on wide receivers (yes, four picks on Patterson was a mistake because those 4 picks could have filled out the team); and C. enlist help in drafting talent. We're essentially a .500 team under our current GM so he needs to raise his game--if he can--to make the Vikes a first time Super Bowl winner.

Here is part of the reason for the Seahawk's success. Seahawks have a good general manager who knows how to choose players much like the old Vikes GM Jim Finks knew how to do as well.
