Richard Sherman can’t cover them all

4. Too many weapons, even for Seattle’s D: Richard Sherman has the talent to shut down one of Denver’s weapons outside and a stout linebacking corps that features Wagner might be able to handle the Moreno-Ball combo. Plus, Earl Thomas might be the game’s premier safety, at least in terms of how much of the field he can cover deep.

But … then what? Let’s say Sherman finds himself on Demaryius Thomas and the line generates a little pressure on Manning and those linebackers box in the Denver run game. There’s still Eric Decker, Wes Welker, Julius Thomas and lesser-used threats like Jacob Tamme at Manning’s disposal. The Broncos did not score 30-plus points in 13 of 16 regular-season games by accident.

Break a leg, Seattle.  No, really--break your legs trying to cover all of these weapons.

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
