EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Brandon Mebane Jersey .J. -- Waiting to get their hands on the Lombardi Trophy, the Seahawks were surrounded by security guards in orange jackets. It was the first time anyone in that colour stopped them all night. The Seahawks stayed true to their mantra to make each day a championship day. They made Super Bowl Sunday the best day of all with one of the greatest performances in an NFL title game -- sparked by a defence that ranks among the best ever. The Seahawks won their first Super Bowl crown by punishing Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos 43-8. That masterful defence, the NFLs stingiest, never let the five-time MVP get going, disarming the highest-scoring offence in league history. "The only way we could say we were the best defence was to take down the best offence," linebacker Bobby Wagner said. Seattle (16-3) was too quick, too physical and just too good for Denver. What was hyped as a classic matchup between an unstoppable offence and a miserly defence turned into a rout. "Weve been relentless all season," quarterback Russell Wilson said. "Having that mentality of having a championship day every day. At the end of the day, you want to play your best football and that is what we did today." Punctuating Seattles dominance were a 69-yard interception return touchdown by linebacker Malcolm Smith to make it 22-0, and Percy Harvins sensational 87-yard kickoff return to open the second half. "I always imagined myself making great plays," said Smith, the games MVP. "Never thought about being the MVP." When the Seahawks, up by 29 points, forced a Denver punt early in the third quarter, the 12th Man -- and there were legions of them in MetLife Stadium -- began chanting "L-O-B, L-O-B." As in Legion of Boom, the Seahawks hard-hitting secondary, part of a young team with an average age of 26 years, 138 days. "This is an amazing team. Took us four years to get to this point, but they never have taken a step sideways," coach Pete Carroll said. "These guys would not take anything but winning this ballgame." The loss by the Broncos again raised questions about Mannings ability to win the biggest games. He is 11-12 in the post-season, 1-2 in Super Bowls. After the game, he brushed off questions about his legacy. "Certainly to finish this way is very disappointing. Its not an easy pill to swallow," said Manning, who threw for a record 55 touchdowns in 2013, two years after missing an entire season because of neck surgeries. "I dont know if you ever really get over it." He never looked comfortable against a defence some will begin comparing to the 1985 Bears and 2000 Ravens -- other NFL champions who had runaway Super Bowl victories. Seattle forced four turnovers; Denver had 26 all season. All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman left with a high ankle sprain in the fourth quarter. He celebrated on crutches. "I hope we etched our names in the history books," Sherman said. Wilson, who has an NFL-record 28 wins in his first two pro seasons, including playoffs, had a 23-yard TD pass to Jermaine Kearse late in the third quarter to make it 36-0. Wilson also hit Doug Baldwin for a 10-yard score in the final period in what had become one of the most lopsided Super Bowls. For the fifth time in six meetings between the NFLs No. 1 offence and defence, the D dominated. "Its all about making history," All-Pro safety Earl Thomas said. "This was a dominant performance from top to bottom." Seahawks tight end Luke Willson, from LaSalle, Ont., had two receptions for 17 yards. Denver fell to 2-5 in Super Bowls, and by the end many of Mannings passes resembled the "ducks" Sherman said the All-Pro quarterback sometimes threw. The victory was particularly sweet for Carroll, fired in 1994 by the Jets. He led the Patriots for three seasons and again was canned. After a short stint out of coaching, he took over at Southern California and won two national titles. But he always felt there was unfinished business in the NFL. Carroll finished that business by lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy, four years after taking charge in Seattle and eight years after the Seahawks lost in their only previous Super Bowl to Pittsburgh. No Super Bowl had been played outdoors in a cold-weather city -- not that the Big Apple was anything close to frozen Sunday, when it was 49 degrees at kickoff. Things went sour for Manning and the Broncos from the very first scrimmage play, and by halftime they were down 22-0 -- their biggest deficit of the season and the only time they didnt score in a half. On that first play, Manning stepped up toward the line just as centre Manny Ramirez snapped the ball. It flew past his incredulous quarterback into the end zone, where Knowshon Moreno dived on it for a safety. A mere 12 seconds in, Seattle led 2-0 with the quickest score in Super Bowl history, beating Chicagos Devin Hesters kickoff return to open the 2007 game -- against Mannings Colts. That one ended much better for Manning as Indianapolis won the championship. This one was a fiasco throughout. Steven Hauschka made 31- and 33-yard field goals for 8-0. Then the Seahawks began scoring touchdowns. Mannings third-down pass to Julius Thomas sailed way too high and directly to safety Kam Chancellor, giving the Seahawks the ball at Denvers 37. A third-down pass interference call on Tony Carter brought Seattle to the 1, and Marshawn Lynch scored to make it 15-0. Then Smith made his second huge play in two weeks. His interception clinched the NFC championship win over San Francisco. Cliff Avril got to Mannings arm as he was throwing, the ball fluttered directly to Smith, who took off down the left sideline for a 69-yard interception TD. Manning trudged to the sideline, a look of disgust on his face, Denvers reputation as an unstoppable force erased. Hunter Henry Jersey . The Big Man finished 3-1 in Week 19, and sits at 53-24 on the season. Now Schultz is ready for more action. Hayes Pullard Jersey . Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist stood tall with 41 saves between the pipes, but it was defenceman Ryan McDonagh who got the first star of the game as he had a goal and an assist and now has two goals and four assists for six points in two games. http://www.chargersprofansshop.com/Black-Adrian-Phillips-Chargers-Jersey.html?cat=927 . -- Manchester United thrilled a record crowd with a brilliant opening goal -- and even Cristiano Ronaldos unexpected entrance proved futile for Real Madrid.Manchester Citys Ilkay Gundogan says disrespectful Manchester United would undoubtedly be better with Bastian Schweinsteiger. Schweinsteiger has been left out of Uniteds first-team plans under Jose Mourinho, having been signed by former manager Louis van Gaal, and has even been written off as an asset in the clubs latest published accounts. Ilkay Gundogan says Schweinsteiger is not just some player The 32-year-old World Cup winner has already received the support of former Germany team-mate Lukas Podolski, and now Gundogan, Citys summer signing who played alongside Schweinsteiger for the national team, has also criticised Uniteds handling of the player. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just ?£6.99. No contract. I believe that Manchester United could 100 per cent benefit from a fit Bastian Schweinsteiger, Gundogan told Sport Bild. If everything you hear and read is true, you can consider it disrespectful. Hes not just some player, and also not only 18 or 19. Highlights of the Manchester derby at Old Trafford Mourinhos United side trail Pep Guardiolas City by five points in the Premier League, and suffered a 2-1 defeat to their neighbours in the Manchester derby at Old Trafford earlier this season. Dan Fouts Jersey. Gundogan has played in Citys last three Premier League games after returning from a serious knee injury and has backed himself to replace Schweinsteiger for Germany following the United midfielders retirement from international football. I trusted myself to do that before [Schweinsteigers retirement], but this has nothing to do with saying his retirement is positive or negative, he said. We should be thankful that we had such a great player.
