Tony Eason? I used to see him in college. Yes, he was shell shocked by the Bears.

Epic fail! I guess when the snap on the opening play from scrimmage sails into the end-zone for a safety one may have to expect that it is going to be a long night.

That may have been the worst Super Bowl ever, especially considering the buzz about the matchup and how competitive it was expected to be. Yes, I remember the 55-10 Super Bowl (also a beat down of the Broncos at the hands of Joe Montana's 49ers), but this one just felt more unwatchable.

Unless you are a Seahawks fan, of course.

I agree, it was the worst. But there's no doubt about who won.

It's loud in Seattle tonight. Honkin horns, fireworks, you name it. It's not a city known for winning championships, so there's a lot of celebrating going on.

It is all perspective. I thought it was a great game (being a Seahawks fan), well executed by Seattle, spread out fine play by many Seattle players, was tough to pick a MVP, and frankly I thought Harvin deserved it. Really only played this one game but worth every penny. Seattle played their game Boss, nothing else to say.

That's true. At least no one can deny that the better team won.

The Broncos broke the 2007 Patriots' records in most offensive categories like points, TDs etc... Both teams were defeated by a better defensive teams and the only consolation I have being a PATS fan is that their game against the Giants was competitive and they lost by 3 points.

Awful. A blowout game, a so-so halftime and few if any great commercials (except we loved the puppy & the Clydesdale). But you have to hand it to the Seahawks, I don't know how they could have played better, one of the best defensive team efforts I've ever seen.

I'd hate to be a Denver fan today, but we know what it feels like (same way we felt after the Pats last two SB appearances).

I thought Bruno Mars did all right. RHCP were sort of like the Broncos .. they made an appearance, but didn't really do much.

This is far better than anything I saw last night, what a horrible no contest game. Also the commercials were disappointing.

Broncos now hold a record of sorts: 7 SB appearances with only 2 wins.

Manning has been choking in big games going all the way back to his college days. Look up his record in bowl games or games vs Florida which was his big rival at Tennessee. Ive never seen a QB that is good that is so mediocre in the biggest games. Romo is close but hes never been "so good" and has never really been in a "huge" game. He's like Manning but on a smaller scale

In my opinion, it was not so much Manning choking. His OL was horrible as was their defense.

Manning did make some questionable decisions under pressure. That said, Denver's offensive line was flat out terrible. Manning was making plays when the O-line gave him good protection, but that was very rare.

Now before someone corrects me and says it was just Seattle's defensive line playing like monsters, yes, they did. But that alone can't really account for ALL of just how bad Denver's pass protection was. They barely even showed up.

The irony was during the game, Manning struggled and looked like an old Johnny Unitas while the commercials had former Denver QB Tim Tebow having a good old time.

Yeah, like Johnny Unitas when he was with the Chargers. Or Joe Namath with the Rams, for that matter.
