I have heard tales of people re-watching Super Bowl 48. I guess it was on NFL Network last night. Not me. No thanks. I won't ever watch that game again. Ever. Once was plenty. However, watching the Broncos get thumped by the Seahawks is a little more tolerable in Lego.
"Well, if Peyton posted Star Wars number in Indianapolis he destroyed the Death Star in Denver this season. Number eighteen shattered expectations for the Broncos. He now holds the records for both the most touchdowns thrown in a season and the most yardage. For the fifth time in his storied career Manning was named the league MVP. Still, it’s well worth wondering if Irsay was right."

Brandon might not have been entirely "with it" for part one but in part two things become a little clearer for our video blogging friend.
In this episode of That's Good Sports our pal Brandon Perna breaks down the Super Bowl as only he can. Episode one of two.
"Pat Bowlen and his family, along with John Elway, will continue to provide their coaches with the tools to succeed. Yes, this was an awful loss - a supremely painful loss. But in the grand scheme of things it’s only one small part of the Denver Bronco legacy."

"For SB Nation to publish this awful piece on their main national page completely discredits its brand. Worse, it makes quality sub-sites like Mile High Report look bad."

Welp. When you're beaten you're beaten and it's best to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and admit it and to give some credit to whomever won.
The Seahawks man handled the Broncos. That's well documented by now. But Seattle's fans made one heck of a showing, too - last night and all season long. The "12th man" deserves to be praised and admired as one of the best fan bases in pro sports - if not the very best.
They even support the MLS in Seattle. In droves.
This is no slight on Broncos Country. We're wonderful. This is just recognizing that Seattle fans do it right. By all reports they outnumbered Broncos fans in the stands at MetLife and even if they didn't the ones that were there were louder than we were. Ask Peyton Manning.
Seattle fans lost the Sonics in what was perhaps the most tragic relocation in sports history. Today they can forget about that. Today their Seahawks are world champions and today the twelfth man deserves to feel part of their success.
You will not find a more unique and dedicated fan base anywhere in America. My broncos sideline cap is tipped to the Twelfth Man. Congratulations.
"Today there's nothing to by analyzed. The Seahawks were just better - better prepared - better coached - better on offense and on defense and on special teams - better in every conceivable way than the Broncos were."

It's not real clear how this story just broke this morning but it has been reported that Coach John Fox will score a ONE MILLION DOLLAR bonus when the Broncos win the Super Bowl.
That's a lot of cabbage and undoubtedly a great motivating force for our "aw, shucks" underappreciated head coach.
