ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Seattle Seahawks Linebacker and Malcolm Smith said he was surprised by the lopsided game after his team trounced the Denver Broncos 43-8 to win the Super Bowl. "I thought it would be tougher. We felt like they would challenge us a lot more. We planned on executing well and playing with that attitude that they would have to deal with us, and I think we did that," Smith, who was selected as the game's Most Valuable Player, said. Seattle posted its greatest margin all season against Denver on Sunday (Feb 2). Seahawks coach Pete Carroll also weighed in. "Sometimes it can be like an avalanche, the scores start happening, the field position just tilts. Everything just goes your way. We were really ready for the opportunities... we really seized the night," Carroll said. Both Carroll and Smith were asked about the conditions in the stadium during the opening snap, which sailed over Denver quarterback Peyton Manning's head putting the Broncos in an early hole. The incident would be a harbinger of the missed opportunities to come for the Denver team as they struggled against the Seahawks dominant defense. The Broncos attributed it to a 'cadence problem,' saying they had gone to a silent count because of the noise in the stadium. "I'm surprised by that. It didn't seem that loud, but I know it was early in the game, so there's a lot of energy in the building. For that to happen, it was unfortunate but it worked out for us," Smith said. Smith ran off with Most Valuable Player award by running all the way into the end zone with a second-quarter, 69-yard interception to break open the game.
