Super Bowl http://www.kunc.org en Seahawks Say They Figured Out Manning's Signals http://www.kunc.org/post/seahawks-say-they-figured-out-mannings-signals Here's a window into why the Seattle Seahawks' defense so thoroughly dominated the Denver Broncos' offense during Sunday's Super Bowl, <a href="http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/02/02/270657316/seattle-dominates-denver-to-win-its-first-super-bowl-victory" target="_blank">which Seattle won 43-8</a>.<p>Yes, it certainly seems as if Seattle's players were just bigger and faster and played better.<p>But like all teams do, Seattle spent the better part of two weeks before the game studying the Denver offense.

From the players to the networks to the hotels, everybody involved with it makes a killing. Why would anybody volunteer to work for free for the Super Bowl? Would you volunteer to work free for Netflix or Disneyworld?<p>Apparently, though, there are more chumps in New Jersey than we see on television's <em>Jersey Shore</em> or hear about in the Rutgers athletic department.
