Well I guess it doesn’t get any better than this – Seattle vs. Denver Super Bowl XLVII… can’t believe I’m sober. Well, I guess I can…
Kinda makes you wonder what Jay Cutler is up to today? BTW – are you guys seriously reading a blog during the biggest game on the planet?
Yep, those are my readers………
Here we go Peyton, Here we go… Maybe not – Broncos take the opening kick and pull off the biggest blunder in SB history. Ball is snapped from the 15 yard line, well over the head of Manning and recovered by Knowshon Moreno in the end zone for the safety. Fastest score in Super Bowl history and Seattle takes possession on their own 35. Manny Ramirez stock just plummeted on Twitter.
WOW - that blows.
Seattle is completely geeked – Wilson busts out Percy Harvin around left end and nets 30 long, deep inside Denver territory. Out of the shotgun hits Harvin on third and nine and the chains continue to move. Broncos look like they just got package punched on the playground… Wilson with the keeper moves it to the nine but comes up 1-yard short of the first – Seahawks’ challenge comes up short as well so it’s all on the foot of Steven Hauschka.
That was easy – Seahawks jump out to a quick 5-0 lead. Here comes the indigestion….
Ball is moved to the 35 thanks to unnecessary roughness – not sure it’s gonna matter. Broncos still look shell-shocked – quick three and out for the NFL’s top Offensive team. Pretty sure this isn’t what the game plan was going in – Colquitt with the kick and Wilson will lead it from his own 28. Scrambles and finds room on his left – drive continues with a quick shot to Baldwin and Seattle picks up another first and the indigestion continues in the 5280.
Third and five is now the biggest play of the game. Floater to Baldwin, who completely beat out Champ for position…. First and goal from the six – maybe these guys are better than I thought?
Wilson to Harvin drops like a bad date but it’s Fox’s turn with the challenge – hoping it’s ruled as a fumble. Might have challenged just to give his guys a chance to realize the game actually started. Either way it’s overturned – Seattle is forced to settle for another Hauschka chip and it rolls out as Seattle 8-0 over the Broncos.
Ok, let’s try this again…. Manning to Welker picks up five – time to celebrate. Ok, short-lived celebration – Manning goes airborne and delivers it straight to the Seattle secondary. Can’t blame the weather on this one – Broncos have less energy than my ex-wife.
Quarter comes to a close and I’m one interception away from turning to Netflix.
First time in Super Bowl history that a team has failed to score a first down in a quarter… that’s beautiful.
Meanwhile, Seattle wasted no time adding to the misery – Seven plays, thirty-seven yards and Marshawn Lynch carries it in from the one. For those of you keeping track that shakes out as 15-0 Seattle on top – I’m almost speechless….
Here we go Peyton, here we go… apparently the Broncos have woken up – Drive starts at the Broncos 16 and generates more success than they’ve had all afternoon – kind of.
Third and 13 from the 35 proves fatal – Manning tosses out his second INT of the game, Malcolm Smith returns it sixty-nine yards and Mrs. Arvada is ready to hurl. Saving grace is following my wife’s family texts as they try everything possible to keep a PG rating….
Seriously thought about taking a break to shave my legs but the Broncos actually crossed midfield – not that it matters much, ten-play drive results in a near interception on a botched fourth and two for the Seahawk 28.
Denver would have to improve just to reach ‘suck’ level….
First half closes out on one of the worst Super Bowl in franchise history – Here we go Bruno, here we go…..
Super Bowl XLVII is done – twelve seconds into the second half Percy Harvin returns the opening kick 87-yards untouched for a Seattle Seahawks touchdown…. Praying for another Tim Tebow commercial before I jab a fork in my eyes.
Down 29-0 Manning’s in desperation mode – manages to cross midfield but doesn’t come close to anything resembling points, Britton Colquitt is my new best friend – Seattle will take it at their own 8.
Wondering if I can call in sick at this point?
Manning makes another stab at it – three plays in he connects with Demaryius Thomas, who gets it stripped by Maxwell – lost count of how many turnovers but suffice to say nearly every in-law I know is either playing coin dozer or solitaire till commercial time….
Seahawks capitalize – Wilson connects with Jermaine Kerse from 23 and he takes it untouched for the score…. Never thought you’d see 36-0 did you?
Another Manning comeback? Probably not, but at least they gave Mrs. Arvada reason to wake up. Six plays, 80-yards and toss in the two-point conversion and it’s only 36-8 at the end of three.
The Denver Broncos have scored.
Just think, if they can manage 29 more points in the next fifteen minutes they might pull this off….
Sorry, I have to recalculate – Wilson just found Baldwin from ten and that’ll stretch it 43-8.
I give up.
So does Denver.
On the bright side, if there is a bright side – taxpayers won’t have to shoulder the cost of a parade this year….
Major props to Russell Wilson and Pete Carroll – this one was over when it started. Seattle outplayed, out hustled and out coached Denver in every aspect of the game….
Like they say – On any given Sunday….
Unfortunately on this particular Sunday, Broncos fans deserved a whole lot more.
