Super Bowl Story Lines: Seahawks, Broncos Should Provide Great Theater

workout src='http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/fd7cf0f07db23e04787c44bf5a19473d907ce74d/r=x307&c=540x304/http/videos.usatoday.net/Brightcove2/29906170001/2014/01/29906170001_3083425456001_video-still-for-video-3083199358001.jpg' width='200px' style='float:left;padding:5px' /> All-pro CB Richard Sherman has the length and speed to stick with Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas while CBs Byron Maxwell, Jeremy Lane and Walter Thurmond III divvy up coverage of WRs Eric Decker, Wes Welker and Bubba Caldwell. Denver TE Julius Thomas has been a revelation this season, but Seattle's underrated linebackers are excellent in coverage while SS Kam Chancellor will make anyone think twice about crossing the middle. Manning will likely attempt to establish Julius Thomas, a mismatch weapon against most defenses, as he did against New England. But the Seahawks have faced two superstar tight ends in the playoffs already, and download Jimmy Graham and Vernon Davis combined for all of three catches and 24 yards. Seattle neutralized Drew Brees and the Saints twice this season, showing they're more than comfortable against the most high-tech attacks, and their ability to deploy fresh waves of pass rushers is another underrated aspect of their arsenal. But solving Manning is no easy assignment, and no one mixes and matches the mismatches he isolates pre-snap any better.
