What a dominating performance by the Seahawks last night in crushing the big Orange (aka the best offense in NFL history)! In contrast to the earlier Seahawks playoff games this season, there was never a doubt about the outcome of the game after the first few minutes. Even though I was somewhat confident of a Seahawks victory, I was quite anxious prior to kickoff because most of the “experts” had predicted a Broncos victory. In fact, many respected pundits predicted that Peyton Manning would carve up the Seahawks in a run away victory.
But those pundits underestimated the Seattle defense and the 12th man. Once again, the 12th Man made a huge difference in the outcome of a game. Indeed, the first Broncos snap that resulted in a safety was caused when the traveling 12th Man made so much noise that the offensive line did not hear Peyton Manning’s count.
Yesterday’s dominating victory was the final exclamation mark on the best season I have experienced as a Seahawks fan. With such a young roster, Seattle fans are thinking this season is the first of several trips to the Super Bowl. Perhaps it’s the start of a “Seattle Reign?” But first things first. I’m looking forward to attending the first Super Bowl parade in Seattle history this Wednesday.
