Champ Bailey didn’t get that Super Bowl ring with the Denver Broncos.
Cooter’s tenure with the Colts overlapped that of new Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, who was head coach of Indianapolis in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
The Denver Broncos seemed unstoppable, even unbeatable at times during the 2013 season. But, when the Vince Lombardi Trophy was on the line, they were blown out by the Seattle Seahawks.
For the fourth time in five years, the Super Bowl has set a record for the most-watched television event in U.S. history, drawing 111.5 million viewers even though the Seattle Seahawks’ 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos wasn’t really competitive.
It looks like defense still wins championships, as Seattle’s Legion of Boom was able to give their team a quick lead and never look back against the Denver Broncos in the 2014 Super Bowl.
The Seahawks pretty much ruined everyone’s fun but their own.
Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.
With Seattle having just a handful of players listed on the injury report and with Denver in the double digits, things are looking good for the ‘Hawks.
What will matter most? The fact that Seattle has no players with Super Bowl experience, or their youth and speed and top-ranked defense? Or will the game be won by Denver’s suddenly stout rush defense and Peyton Manning’s blessed right arm?
If you are looking for a Super Bowl preview that attempts to dig into the match-up to reveal a stat or a tendency or an “x-factor” that the game could turn on, you have some options.
