We’re not trying to rip open old wounds, but this video is a good watch is you want to find out what happened on the first snap in Super Bowl XLVIII.

It looks like Seahawks fans certainly played a role in the Broncos miscue at the line of scrimmage. Peyton Manning called the cadence, but center Manny Ramirez didn’t hear him.

The entire team was clearly flustered from the start.

One note about the video: It was great to see Wes Welker try to get the offense going. It’s now clear why he was one of the team captains this year. However, even all of his Super Bowl experience couldn’t propel the other guys out of the jitter-ish state that they were in.
