It’s easy to pencil the Seahawks as back-to-back Super Bowl champs after their 36-16 beat-down of the Packers last night. Or to think Green Bay is a shadow of the franchise that won it all in 2011 and hasn’t reached the conference championship since.
The defending champs looked sharp on Thursday night.

When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.
The Seattle Seahawks have won their first Super Bowl title, crushing the favored Denver Broncos 43-8.
We have the classic pocket passer in Peyton Manning vs. the quick-footed, quick-witted scrambler in Russell Wilson.
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?
The Seahawks and the Broncos will only play once for the title of Super Bowl champion. The game won’t be played on a computer, but on the field. But that doesn’t stop people from trying to guess what will happen on the field, with what happens in a computer simulation.
With all the extra attention an outdoor, cold weather Super Bowl has given the league, the NFL should commit to making the host city a major part of the Super Bowl story every year.
Both Denver and Seattle advanced this week after defeating the Patriots and Niners, respectively. The two will square off on Groundhog Day this year with the championship on the line. The question is: who will end up with the title?
What does Seattle have to do in order to win the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history?
The Broncos have the best offense in the NFL. The Seahawks have the best defense in the NFL. The Super Bowl will decide which is more important, and people are putting their money on Denver.
