Defense Wins Championships

Did you see Cam and Peyton blister the field in Super Bowl 50 with their brand of high octane offense?  Of course not.  Because that’s not what happened, despite what the sports journalists predicted in the crushing hype leading up to the game. 
I wonder why nobody takes into consideration that other people are on the field giving their all too?  It’s their job to stop them.  From a former defensive tackle (I was the slow guy that tried hard in high school), I thought it was a great performance.  It certainly wasn’t what the talking heads predicted. 
After the Broncos won the game Von Miller, their star linebacker, was named the Most Valuable Player.  Rightfully so…but that trophy really should have gone to the rest of his defensive teammates too.  (Except for maybe Aqib Talib for that asinineintentional facemask on Corey Brown)
So around the world Denver Broncos fans are celebrating, Carolina Panther fans are saying “wait until next year” in the surrender cobra pose, and everyone else is just either talking about how dumb the halftime show was or the disappointment in the commercials this year.  My eleven year old son is trying to weasel out of doing the dishes three times in one week, as he lost his bet by backing Cam.  This old guy took the old guy.
