I thought Russell Wilson could have been the MVP. He went 18 of 25 for 206 yards and 2 touchdowns. Here are his highlights from his first Super Sunday win.
When he hit Jermaine Kearse for a touchdown, it put the Seahawks up 36-0. This was no kind of game. The Seahawks were the best team in football this year. The 12th man deserved this win and deserved Lombardi’s trophy.
I was kind of surprised the MVP was a 7th rounder out of USC, Malcolm Smith. I know little about Smith but it’s hard to figure if he’s in the Seahawks long-term plans and would have liked to have seen the award go to Wilson.
Overall, I didn’t pay close attention to the game. My memories of this game will be spending the night quietly with my parents, my wife, and my aunt. My wife made her famous chili. My mom brought her chili. We spent The Weed Bowl watching some of the commercials, talking, and laughing.
The Seahawks are already favorites to win the 2015 Super Bowl.
I’m happy the 2013 Seahawks ended up champions. They were a very dominant team, defined by a great defense, a crushing running game, and a Quarterback that didn’t make many mistakes and continued to be as solid of a pro on and off the field as a team could ask for.
