Beyond the 1-2 Super Bowl record, the guy maintains just an 11-12 overall post season tally. That's not quite abysmal, but given his overall talent, it ranks him amongst some of the greatest duds in NFL history. The media spent the better part of the last two weeks drooling all over this guy, and it's totally undeserved. His legacy isn't just tarnished after this drubbing -- it's destroyed.

There is one great QB in the past fifteen years -- Tom Brady. You can hate the Patriots or not like him personally, but his overall stats are nearly as shiny as Manning's, and he plays his guts out in the post season. Yes, he has two Super Bowl losses, but they were both by razor-thin margins. A few dropped passes difference and he'd be 5-0 and there'd be no argument that he was the greatest of all time. But Manning? Manning hardly qualifies to wash Brady's jock strap.

*Edit* And what a terrible game -- poorly coached, horribly executed, and just plain ugly. I cannot recall a more awful Super Bowl in the last ten years. At least if it had snowed, we'd have something to talk about, but mother nature couldn't even cook up a timely nor'easter. Wretched.
I am not even a Bronco and I find this to be hilarious. One of the greatest duds in NFL history? That right there says enough about your post. Time to crawl out of your myopic world and realize there are sports teams outside of New England.

Yeah. Ignore her. She's coming in to stir the pot -- she's a Pats fan currently living in Seattle. And apparently she never took a statistics class and doesn't get out much considering every football analyst on the planet disagrees with her.

I agreed with everything you said, except for this. I never want the pats to do well. The team is just as arrogant as most of their fans. They deserve to lose every game they play. I would love to see Brady lose in a father son game at a park.

As for this Superbowl? I thought Seattle played one hell of a game and truly deserved to win. It is nice to see a team come together and win a championship for the city of Seattle. Cheers to the Seattle fans, but watch out next year!!

Wow! Where'd you get your crystal ball? I want one just like it! (I said the same thing, just not on CD.)

The bad thing about a Super Bowl Championship is that it's only valid for a year. The good thing about a super bowl loss is that it's only effective until the beginning of the next season.

The Broncos had an epic season in 2013-14. No one can dispute that. They were the best team of the regular season and for all but the last game of the post season... (which, of course, is the only one that really matters). I'm just saying they were an undeniably great team regardless of how badly they choked on Feb 2. They will have most of those pieces (hopefully minus Fox) back next year. The Seahawks will not. Seattle should enjoy this moment, which this year's team truly deserved... Next year will be a different story.

Why will the Seahawks not?

The Bronco's just missed their golden opportunity to win a Super Bowl. They're going to lose a lot of weapons on both sides of the ball, and the Chiefs and several other AFC teams will only be getting better next season. Tough loss but Broncos fans really set themselves up for this one by not acknowledging team weaknesses and putting all of their faith in one man. This loss is not Peyton's fault, it's the lack of the team around him being able to rise to an occasion.

Burghatory, the typical butthurt Broncos "fan" that thought since ESPN was acting like the Broncos had already won, he thought it was a fact. How about taking a step back and appreciate a team playing real football and showing that what works in Madden might not work so well in real life.

I'm a Bronco fan so it pains me to say this. Lopsided score aside, the Seahawks were the better team.

Budget. It's just speculation of course but it will be hard for them to even keep a really 'low' paid star like Russell Wilson around, much less an entire defense of now-sought-after players.
