I've also seen Leno do his street interviews and heard Americans that know squat about the USA. If they don't know about where they live, I'll go out on a limb and guess they don't know squat about Canada.

"Defense wins Championships" or at least blowout Superbowls. I still can't really believe that game. Yesterday the parade was amazing.

Also, Barry Sanders was the best. Put him on the Cowboys during the 90's and Troy Aikman never throws the ball.

So is Tom Brady.

I know the Seahawks defense won that game, but Wilson looked pretty special to me that night also. Looked like a flawless performance. IIRC, they didn't have much of a running game.

Wilson is pretty special when it comes to his composure and leadership skills. He doesn't get flustered or out of sync if plays don't go his way or he gets tons of pass rush pressure. Manning sure looked flustered on Sunday, you never saw that out of Wilson during the season when he was getting lots of pressure. I would agree he doesn't throw for tons of yards like a Manning, Brady, or Rogers but give him some time and to this point he hasn't needed to throw for tons of yards to win the Super Bowl.

Here is a fun fact from the Super Bowl:

The number 1 offense of all time in the history of the NFL scored 8 points in the Super Bowl. The number 1 defense in the NFL for the season scored 9 points in the Super Bowl. Granted 2 of those points were self inflicted by the broncos but they still count as defensive points.

Seattle's offense didn't even need to play in the game. Pretty amazing when you think about the hype the broncos offense had coming into the game.

I live in Canada and have season tickets to the Seattle Seahawks along with roughly 10,000 other Canadians which means that Canadians have approximately 15% of the total season tickets. .......Does that answer your question?
