Richard Sherman was hoping they would get to play Peyton and the Broncos
Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks defense said they wouldn’t want it any other way today in a press conference. Seahawks players say this is what they wanted all along, a showdown with possibly the best quarterback ever to play the game in Denver’s Peyton Manning.
“We wouldn’t have it any other way,’’ Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. “They’re an unbelievable, record-setting offense with a [future] Hall of Fame quarterback. That’s as good as it gets. And that’s as tough a game as you can get in the Super Bowl.
“The No. 1 defense [Seattle] against the No. 1 offense [Denver]. It doesn’t happen like this too often where both No. 1 seeds make it. It’s a testament to the hard work on both teams. I’m sure it’s going to be a fantastic game.’’
It is going to be a special game. I expect this to be the best Super Bowl in the past several years. Peyton Manning has something to prove, but it is hard to go against an underdog.
