I knew going into the 49th Superbowl I really didn’t have a horse in the race.
I had equal reasons to like Seattle and to dislike them.
- Best Defense
- NFC Champion
- No known issues with rogue PSI
- Pete Carrol is probably my least liked coach in the NFL
- Marshawn Lynch, while a great athlete, was being quite the jerk
- Richard Sherman
I was also curious to see what a Brady/Belichick style offense could do that the Broncos Manning-Style offense could not.
In the end, I found myself cheering for whomever was losing at that moment. I would be cheering for the Seahawks, then the Patriots, then in the end cheering for the Seahawks again.
Overall, the defense won the game. However, this time, it was New England’s Defense that had the final say.
