Well football fans, it`s here Super Bowl 48. As we all know the Denver Broncos` number one offense will be taking on the Seattle Seahawks` number one defense. They say the defenses wins Championships, but can the Seashawks` defense win the Super Bowl?
The Seahawks` front seven with Red Bryant, Chris Clemons, Cliff Avril, Bruce Irvin, and Bobby Wagner are as good as they come, but it`s the secondary that helps them make plays. Richard Sherman is 6`3 195, Bryon Maxwell is 6`1 207, and Kam Chancellor is 6`3 232 and even with their size, they will have their hands full with the Broncos` receiving corp. We will see just how good this secondary is going up against Demaryius Thomas 6`3 229, Eric Decker 6`3 214 and Julius Thomas 6`5 250, along with Peyton Manning`s quick release.
Along with the Bronco`s weapons, Manning has Wes Welker who is a speedy little slot receiver. Welker is great at running his routs but he will get held up at the line with how the Seahawks play. Knowshon Moreno is having a good year, but can he ware down the Seahawks` defense?
I believe this game is going to be won by either the Broncos` defense or the Seahawks` offense. The Broncos` defensive front seven really is`nt made up of any known names besides Shaun Phillips, but they do a good job holding up at the point of attack. The secondary has Champ Bailey and Quentin Jammer along with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Bailey and Jammer are still good corners and DRC is great at jumping routs, but they are going to have to be at the top of their game today.
Russell Wilson is a scrambling QB and if he is able to get outside the pocket, he will find either Percy Harvin, Golden Tate, or Zac Miller Marshawn Lynch is going to have to be in beast mode all day going up against a line that shutdown Legarrette Blunt. The Seahawks` offense can take on better defenses than the Broncos` D and win, but can they score more points then Manning on this stage?
Anyone can win this game today, but with me being a fan of the Arizona Cardinals I can only go with the Broncos today.
