Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner said that the Broncos were scared of the Seahawks defense in the Super Bowl in an ESPN First Take interview.
The Seattle Seahawks made a statement in Super Bowl 48 when they held the record-setting Denver Broncos offense to eight points, and Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner has stated what many people were thinking during the game in a guest appearance on ESPN First Take.
“They looked scared out there,” Wagner said. Wagner also said that he thought safety Kam Chancellor’s hit on wide receiver Demaryius Thomas helped set the tone for the game. Thomas made a catch shortly before Chancellor knocked him back five yards.
Wagner went on to cite physical intimidation as a key part of the Seahawks’ game that they thrive on.
Quarterback Peyton Manning making short throws and seeing his receivers get tackled the instant they caught the ball was a running theme during the game, and this was as much offense as the Broncos were able to achieve until they scored their lone touchdown at the end of the third quarter.
The Broncos will play in a rematch against the Seahawks on Sept. 21 as they look to avenge their blowout loss.
