The B/B Podcast - Super Bowl XLVIII Recap Show

By - Kris Fletcher & Tim Swift

In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we recap Seattle's convincing victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, debate which team has a better chance at a return trip to the Big Game next season, and determine what Peyton Manning's lasting legacy will be once and for all!

- Seahawks Cruise to a Title: Super Bowl XLVIII was supposed to be a coronation for the greatest offense in the history of the NFL, but the wrong team showed up. Instead, Seattle laid claim to a historical distinction of their own; best defense ever. How did the Seahawks manage to derail Denver's high-powered offense en route to the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy? Hear our take.

- See You in Arizona?: From start to finish, the Seahawks and Broncos were the two best teams in the National Football League this season. But which squad is in the best position for a return trip to Super Sunday next year and why? We'll tell you.

- A Legacy in Limbo?: Peyton Manning has been widely regarded as the greatest regular season quarterback of all time for several years now. Unfortunately for No. 18, playoff games aren't played during the regular season. What, if anything, did Sunday's demoralizing defeat do to Peyton's lasting legacy in the overall big picture? Our answers may surprise you.


We decide if Malcolm Smith was the right choice for Super Bowl MVP honors, and grade both the commercials and halftime show from the single biggest sporting event of the year!

All this and more in this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast!

  1. This was the most I've heard you speak in a while, Kris. Tell us how you REALLY feel about Peyton! Lol. Great show by both of you guys, as always.

    1. Thanks, brotha. Actually had several people tell me they were impressed with the fact that I made it through an entire Peyton-heavy show without referencing Brady at all. Lol
