[VIDEO] Counter-Intelligence: Seattle Seahawk Richard Sherman Cracked Peyton’s Hand Signal To Win The Super BowlPosted: February 4, 2014
Richard Sherman Seattle Seahawks Cracked Peyton’s Hand signal To Win The Super Bowl Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman claims that part of his team’s strategy for winning the Super Bowl on Sunday night was successfully cracking Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning’s hand signals.
“All we did was play situational football,” he told Sports Illustrated in an interview published Monday. “We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes. Then we figured out the hand signals for a few of the route audibles in the first half.”
Sherman demonstrated some of the signs during the interview and said his teammates had started to predict the Broncos’ plays. Manning is said to change his signals for every game…
Sports Illustrated has the wrap-up: Despite employing something of a makeshift unit, the Broncos protected Peyton Manning better than any other O-line guarded any QB in the league. Denver allowed all of 20 sacks in 16 regular-season games, easily the lowest number in the league.
“We are confident in what we can do,” Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril said confidently on Thursday. “We feel like we can definitely rush him. Whenever we get the chance we’re going to try to make it happen.”
Make it happen, they did in a 43-8 win over the Broncos.
Avril came up with one of the most important plays of all up front. The game was still somewhat in the balance at 15-0 in the second quarter when Avril pushed his way into the pocket and hit Peyton Manning’s arm as he went to throw. Manning’s pass attempt fluttered out of his hand and into the arms of Seattle’s Malcolm Smith, who raced back 69 yards for a touchdown — turning the game from an early mismatch into a complete laugher.
Manning took just one sack in the game overall, resulting in a fumble, with 3:50 left to play. He also had little time to set in the pocket and scan the field. That was a focus for Seattle’s aggressive defensive front entering the game: moving Manning off his spots.

After more than three years already spent in confinement while awaiting trial, former Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison today for what has been described as the largest ever leak of classified government documents.
Manning, who is 25 years old, had been facing 90 years, and prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence him to a minimum of 60 years in prison, arguing that the leaks endangered lives and interfered with the government’s diplomatic efforts.
“There may not be a soldier in the history of the Army who displayed such an extreme disregard” for his mission, the prosecutor, Capt. Joe Morrow, said in court on Monday, according to CNN. Manning “felt he alone was knowledgeable and intelligent enough to determine what information was to be classified.”
