Finally re-watched the Super Bowl Win
Wed Jun 06, 2018 9:48 am
  • And the one take away is this:

    That is a top 2-3 defense in the history of the entire league, wow.

    I forgot how dominant and intimidating they were as we have been lesser so the last few years, the contrast is stark. You know you are watching one of the best defensive units in the history of the game when you watch this one. So incredible. Broncos did not get even get a first down until there is like 10 minutes left in the second quarter.

    If this is the sort of relentlessness we're drafting again, I can't wait. The SB unit was composed of bigger, better, faster players that played as one, with a palpable intensity that can only be observed in a group who is genuinely motivated to be the best of all time. Just nasty. I only say top 2-3 because of my lack of knowledge pre 90's, in which the game was much different. I would put that squad up against anyone, anytime, and it would be an amazing game :)

    That was my thought as well. I think I've watched it a dozen times since then...At least. It's instant Euphoria for 12's.

    That defense can most certainly be in the conversation as one of the all-time greatest defenses along with the Steel Curtain, Purple People Eaters, the 85 Bears and 02 Ravens.

    Absolutely.

    I think the argument can be made they're probably the second best behind the '85 Bears.

    I think they're better than the famous Buc's or Ravens squads. Not sure about the old Stealers D's. Kinda before my time.

    Exactly! I watched it 3x the first week alone! Prob. a dozen + times overall over the years too. Comcast nearly had to break my front door in to get that DVR back for their dumb ass Xfinity upgrade that I refused to turn in until it would no longer work with their system. Still pisses me off I had to turn that back in. BTW ..The Sound FX edition of that game is AWESOME!! :2thumbs: :irishdrinkers:

    -Wes Welker

    That has to be taken in to consideration. This was a historic record setting offense that the LOB outscored on their own. The offense didn't need to score a single point and we would have won 9-8 (I know, I know the safety wasn't really some great defensive play...)

  • One of the most dominant Super Bowl victories of all time . . . by one of the best defenses of all time . . . and one of the best overall teams of all time. If they only had a better OC who could have put up consistent numbers with Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin, Golden Tate, Zach Miller, Michael Robinson, etc. That was everything about Pete Carroll's philosophy coming to fruition.

    This ^^^

    The Broncos/Manning set records, won MVP, honors, etc etc that year and the Seahawks turned those awards into participaction trophies.

    My Wife is from Denver so she was group texting with her family. I had a small party and we were getting ready for the start of the game and she was relaying the condolences from her family on the beat down the Seahawks were about to receive. They reminded us of all the accolades blah blah blah. It got pretty silent once the game started and it was AWESOME!

  • Ha, yeah I should have clarified, have not watched the game in its entirety, just highlights.

    You can feel the tone the defense was setting from the sofa, holy cow, pey pey took a big ol horse you know what about 12 seconds in to the first quarter and it was a beat down from there.

    historic.

    You could just FEEL IT from the first snap of the game.

  • I just watched it again the other day too
    Look how much faster our D was then
    Our pass rush pressure was phenomenal
    Doug was Doug and Russ was Russ
    Our team was faster as a whole and they'd never seen percy play , boy did they regret that
    Our special teams were great
    On to now .
    Our defense is younger and hopefully faster
    Im hoping our special teams looks like that again
    If our offense can block and run the ball like I Think theyre gonna this is going to be a fun ride

  • That game solidified the Teams reputation of why teams feared us. The Broncos were castrated in front of the world within 12 seconds of the start of the game and were afraid the rest of it.

    As a lifelong Seahawk fans convinced that we were a cursed franchise, I was not confident until Percy ran the 2nd half opening kickoff back.

    After the safety I was sure that the football gods or the refs would kick us in the nuts once again.

  • That team took the officials out of the game right away, between the safety and the interception it was going to be hard to try and give Manning an edge when the Seahawks were a juggernaut on latterly every play especially that first quarter and the Broncos heart was fillet and dressed on the field. After the interception I just wanted to see how many wounds we would inflict and see if Manning would be yanked.

  • I've kept my copy as it has no commercials , no halftime and just the game in it's entirety
    I rewatch it every time I go to the seahawks fest at ocean shores every summer , and maybe when I'm feeling down cuz it picks me up every time and because of it SB 49 doesn't hurt at all
    It's funny as I see that game as the defenses fault for letting it get in that position
    I'm glad now that the players who felt it was an offense problem are gone or will be before the regular season starts
    I'm a seahawks fan through and through , not so much a particular player although I do wish them the best if we get eliminated before their team does
    I pray we get back to that former glory just once before I die but either way I'll die a happy man
    I'm wearing warmer clothes if I ever get to go to a super bowl parade again , that's for sure

    Go Hawks

    We tend to focus on the one game-losing play, but there were many other earlier factors that led to that doom.

    * Losing Jeremy Lane to an ACL blowout plus folded-in-half forearm at the end of his INT return. If he doesn't get dissected by a low hit by Edelman on the sidelines... maybe different result.

    * Losing Lane led to Tharald "Toast" Simon getting into the game and being totally abused by Brady and the too-quick-for-him Pats receivers.

    * With Lane gone, Pete Carroll had no quick slot corners available, as he left Marcus Burley off the active list, a healthy scratch. Burley could at least hang some of the time with Edelmans and Amendolas of the Pats world. Simon could hang NONE of the time. So blame that brain fart on Pete Carroll.
    NFL Films microphones captured the reaction of Brady and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels when they learned that Lane was heading to the locker room, and as shown on Inside the NFL, it was obvious that Brady and McDaniels immediately realized that the Seahawks would have a big hole in their secondary.

    From: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2 ... went-down/
    “Lane’s out of the game,” McDaniels told Brady, who then asked McDaniels who would replace Lane in Seattle’s base defense. McDaniels didn’t know off the top of his head but said, “They’re gonna have to put somebody else in there.”

    The “somebody else” was Tharold Simon, and the Patriots went right to work on attacking the weak link in Seattle’s secondary, as Julian Edelman made a big play by beating Simon in coverage and then Brandon LaFell scored a touchdown, again beating Simon in coverage.


    * When we lost Cliff Avril to a concussion, that's when things really went downhill in stopping the Pats defense. On Lane's pick I'm pretty sure it was Avril who had the pressure from the left side as Bennett closed in on Brady and obliterated him as he threw. Without Avril's pressure the rest of the game... enough time for Brady to find and exploit Tharald Simon. BTW, can anyone verify with was Avril with the pressure from left DE on Lane's pick? I'll be damned if the jersey doesn't look like a #55, and Avril wore #56. #55 was listed as Heath Farwell, and that was definitely NOT Farwell pressuring Brady.

    Bevell's biggest failings on that play were lack of matchup awareness, expecting Kearse to move Brandon Browner, and choosing to use Ricardo Lockette as the target. Then Bevell's biggest failing was throwing Lockette under the bus after the game, instead of accepting responsibility.

    Yep, they tried though on a spot where Russ dove for the first down on the sideline. He had it, they reviewed it, and still said he didn’t get there. There wasnt anything they could have done to stop Seattle that day officiatingwise.

    That’s a reason why I’ve been so pissed about the Hawks pissing away the first 2-3 quarters on offense, it keeps officiating shenanigans/incompetence in play for the outcome of the game.

    Pounce on the opponents and put em away early, and officiating becomes a non-factor.

    I felt that as well, but, I also felt like SGT Largent, we’d get a little screwed (not to an XL* degree) by the zebras because the NFL really wanted to give golden boy Pey Pey another ring so they wanted the Donks in the game as long as possible.

    The thing is the team we just beat in the NFCCG was light years better than the other team we played in XLVIII, so beating Donks was like the Hawks being a hot knife going through butter.

    Like many of us said at the time, whoever wins the NFCCG is going to win XLVIII.
