    Peyton Manning won 1 superbowl, he himself is not as good as a unit, no qb can ever be better than a unit. How are you not understanding that football is a team sport not an individual. Dan Marino never won a super bowl even though he is arguably a top 5 qb of all time. I know you might not understand it, being retarded, but a franchise QB doesn't win you championships in a team sport. QB may be the most important position in the game, but it is far from being the only one that matters!

    you make me so angry with the stupid things you say and believe that it makes me wonder how people like you are allowed to function in society without having someone watch them 24/7? How do you make it work being able to function with your mental illness in a society that is built around education?

    He definitely has something special eyes to see diamonds in the rough, but I think it is overhyped. Soon other teams will learn how to play Seattle's defense just the same way that teams realized how to play the Bucaneers Defense. This team reminds me a lot of the 02 Tampa Bay Bucaneers. If the Seahawks can make a run next year I'll bite my words, but in my opinion I think next year they will go 8-8 or 9-7 and either lose wild card or not make playoffs. Teams are going to watch the Seattle tape over and over and since they don't disguise on defense, teams will learn how to respond to their blitz schemes, and wr/qb pressure that the defense puts on the opposition.

    Good post though Tennessy XO you could be right. Get Brad Pitt on the phone again!

    but they were good enough to get there. Actually the year they won the superbowl they had a terrible defense. They allowed the 23rd most points and and 32nd most rushing yards per game.

    I'm saying in order to sustain a high level of success for multiple years you need an above average qb. If not you will never consistently be a good team. End of story.

    You can have the worst defense in the league but have peyton manning as your QB and you are prolly still gonna win your division. I dont get what you don't see?

    See that's precisely the thing though, I don't think there is anything to figure out. They don't disguise anything and play straight up man to man in the secondary. They also rarely "blitz" in the traditional sense of the word and are able to get immense pressure reliably by just bringing the front 4. Thy have strong, fast, athletic, great tackling LB's who fly around.The only way to beat Seattle is to just be better than them talent wise or have a comparable defense but a more explosive offense.

    We can build our defense all we want but if our offense can't sustain drives and get TD's it won't matter in the end. Healthy balance all around

    Do we need an upgrade at QB? Yes! However the priority is to build the D!!! If an upgrade magically appears, then fine, pull the trigger. However, right now, there is nothing out there better than what we have. Don't go get a QB just to get one especially if they are on the same or lower level than what we have. GO DEFENSE TO BUILD THE TEAM!

    Peyton Manning is just one of a kind.. he'll work an any system because he makes the system. Put Peyton Manning on that 0-16 Lions team, and they would win around 8 games.. maybe more, especially with Calvin up there. He'd have plays designed for him.

    He needs more help to win championships obviously though. Even with a stacked Broncos team, he still got whooped in the Super Bowl. He just doesn't perform well in the playoffs.
