Not all manning, though. A lot of it really was Seattle defense, they played out of their minds. In that respect, kinda glad it wasn't the Patriots in there, don't think they'd have pulled it off either. I'd like to think it would have been better than 43-8, though...
Well, as poorly as my Steelers started the year, they were playing some pretty darn good football the second half and I think they would have faired better than the Bronco's did. At least they wouldn't have laid an egg. You have to meet the physicality with physicality and the Steelers would have done that at least.
But you're right, I think rather than attack the Denver Offense, the credit needs to go to the Seattle D. They "came to play" for sure.
