- In three Super Bowls – 3td / 4 int
- Manning and Chamberlain one championship

2. Turnovers:

- Crazy Bruce Lee punch of ball
- first interception duck hunting
- Manning has two pick-six in Super Bowls

3. Other:

- Joe Namath flips coin before team selected heads or tails – nice fur
- great job national anthem
- why did Pete Carroll lose a timeout on the challenge on spotting the ball – he was right they moved the ball
- Skittles a big winner-
- the Super Bowl coats looked like the robot from Lost in Space
- was that Meryl Streep leading the Broncos out on the horse?

  1. manning sucks and is overrated. i’d take his brother in a heartbeat over him in a big game.

    REPLY – MPC – Seattle proved the way to beat manning and make him move his feet – the Patriots should have been sending the house and if he beats you he beats you – but their passive approach turned out to be a losing approach – how would the Pats ever beaten Seattle?
