Attention: Seattle Seahawks fans!
We're sorry to be the ones to break it to you, but your team has no chance to beat the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. That's not to say you shouldn't still watch the game, the commercials are always good, but as for the game we'd like you to consider the following facts.
1. The Denver Broncos offense was not just good this year; it was historically good! They tied or broke 39 offensive records this year. 39! And we're not talking small meaningless records, we’re talking team records for most points (606), most TDs (76), most players with 10 TDs (4), and individual records for passing TDs (55), passing yards (5,477) and most 400-yard games (4). Whew!
2. This just in: the Broncos defense is good. If the Seahawks think they’re going to be able to control the ball on the ground, they should ask the Patriots how that worked out for them. The truth is that the Broncos have shut down their playoff opponents. In fact, both the Chargers and Patriots combined to score only three points in the first three quarters of both games.
3. If the Seahawks fall behind and are forced to get into a shoot-out with the Broncos, they can just about forget it. The Broncos offense dominates the Seahawks offense in every category possible. The Seahawks offense sputtered much of the season with scoring totals of 12, 14, 17, 10 and 17 in six of their games. meanwhile, the Broncos did not score less than 20 points in any of their games and scored 40 or more points six times.
4. Experience counts for a lot when it comes to the Super Bowl. The Broncos have tons of it in the most important areas and we’re not just taking about Peyton Manning and his fellow players. The Broncos head coach, offensive coordinator, and defensive coordinator all have Super Bowl experience. None of the Seahawks coaches or players have ANY Super Bowl experience.
5. The two-back running attack of Knowshon Moreno and Montee Ball give the Broncos offense the diversity needed to neutralize the Seahawks defense. Moreno and Ball combined to run for 1,600 yards during the regular season and 240 yards in Denver’s two playoff victories.
When you stop to consider all the facts, it's easy to see why the Denver Broncos will PWN the Seahawks on Sunday. (although stay tuned...we might have a different opinion tomorrow)
