Complete teams win championships. Seattle outclassed Denver in every aspect of the game tonight.

Here's an amazing stat:

Sixteen years in a row, the top ranked scoring-defense (least points allowed) has made it to the SuperBowl.

Those defenses are 13-3 in the big game.

EDIT: I was wrong. See my post on page three.

Sorry.

Not just defenses, but defenses that create havoc on the opposing offenses and create turnovers. I have to agree that our bend but not break formula is not "great" defense. I have always said that even as good as our defenses have been they could not hold a candle to our "Steel Curtain" years. Seattle's defense is similar to those teams in that they put pressure on the opposing offense constantly.

You see what they did with just 4 men rushing????

If you want to play consistent elite D in this league now that favors Offense....you have to have a great 4 man rush

It makes me sick seeing Woodley Jones and Woridls dancing and hugging with OL like they're at a dance class or something

Look, I'm biased, but I don't know how you can watch this Seattle D and not love them.

I'm aware of the "East coast bias" and what not, but people need to pay attention now.

NFC West is best.

Careful now, suggesting that our defensive scheme of 'tackling the catch' and playing 8 yards off the receiver is LeBeau bashing!

I knew Seattle's defense was great - but holy cow - talk about lightning fast to the ball. They have to be the fastest defense I've seen since our 08 Steelers and even we didn't have this kind of secondary. Got to give credit where it is due.

I hate to say it but with what we got right now I'm not feeling to great about getting what you need from a pass rush.

Oh, by the way, Seattle's team was tied for the youngest team to win a SB at 26.4 years old. If they can manage to keep the core of that defense I see a couple more SB trips for them.

We need some people not named Woodley WIld WIngs to step it up
