Hasta La Vista Denver

This is the message the Sherminator will resonate throughout the Super Bowl.  along with his teammates in the Seahawks' secondary.  As fans you can't ask for a more appealing matchup than Denver vs Seattle or maybe it's the fact I would genuinely enjoy Seattle eating Peyton alive?  We are going to hear all about the best defense versus the best offense as the marketing point for this final, but I think the bigger story is Seattle's 12th Man going to have the same impact in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Richard Sherman gave us the moment of the NFL Playoffs thus far with his sensational defensive play, but even better than that pass deflection was his tearing into Michael Crabtree.  One thing Crabtree should have been warned of was not to light the fire under the best corner in football.  Are people really going to hold it against this athlete for being emotionally invested?  Sure, the stiff white-collar members of the sports universe, but to the everyday fans like myself and Nelly Gunn this is the sort of stuff that makes players worth watching.

The big picture would leave us watching Peyton Manning as Public Enemy No.1 for Richard Sherminator, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Co.  Can they slow down the likes of Demaryius Thomas, Julius Jones, Wes Welker, Eric Decker, and Knowshown Moreno?!  For those that are not aware of this Moreno is playing on the biggest stage in his sport and has a chance of putting his skills on display being that he hits Free Agency this offseason.  He posted 1,000+ yards in an offense that screams pass, pass, pass, OMAHA OMAHA, pass.  Peyton has broken down some great defenses over the years and let's not forget where the Kansas City Chiefs ranked this year in defense.  Peyton was having field days against the Chiefs (I would know he was my opposing QB in Fantasy Football in one of those games).  Only difference is as good as Eric Berry and Brandon Flowers are the Chiefs just don't have the defensive tenacity that the Seahawks display each and every week.

Quite simply as good as Denver's offense is I don't see them breaking more than 24 points against this Seahawks defense in fact I think Seattle takes this home with turnovers and wins the game on the defensive side of the ball.  34-17 final with Seattle taking home the Super Bowl in New York.  Peyton will be Sherminated.

"This is the hand that ended your dreams and shut your mouth".  I'm sure this was close to what was said with a few expletives.
