Malcolm Smith named Super Bowl MVP. Are you kidding me? To recap: he was probably the 8th or 9th best guy on the defense. His pick six happened when the ball was tipped by someone else and his fumble recovery happened when the all jarred out by someone else. Nine tackles? Big deal. Manning completed 36 passes all within 6-8 yards (linebacker zone.) Basically this guy won the MVP by being in the right place at the right time several times. Meanwhile, Russell Wilson became the first QB to pass for at least 200 yards, 2 TDs and complete 70 percent of his passes in a Super Bowl win without being named MVP. But I don't think the stats tell the whole story. Wilson also had some key scrambles, came up big on third down all game, completed some incredible passes on the run, and consistently beat the Broncos pass rush with his legs. His performance was every bit as good as some notable MVP performances by QBs in recent years. In fact, that was one of the better QB performances I can remember in a big game considering the crummy pass protection. Wilson is truly something special. On defense, several defensive linemen and the entire secondary all were more valuable than Smith, even though their names were not called as often. Richard Sherman held Decker to six yards on one catch, while Kam Chancellor had an interception and some huge hits. Earl Thomas forced Manning to throw underneath the entire game. Finally, Percy Harvin was more deserving of than Smith with the back breaking kickoff return and several huge plays. He added another dimension the Seahawks offense.
