Two former Louisville Cardinal football players will receive Super Bowl rings. Former offensive lineman Breno Giacomini and former defensive end Greg Scruggs are both members of the 2013 Seattle Seahawks.
Although both were in attendance for Sunday nightâs game, Giacomini was the only one who actually participate in the game. Greg Scruggs is in his second year with the Seattle franchise, but missed the entire season after tearing his ACL last spring. Scruggs had a solid rookie season in 2012 and was expected to make an impact on this yearâs team.
Giacomini has been the full time starter at right tackle for Seattle for the past two seasons. He played tight end and tackle during his Louisville career. He is one of the many recruits to sign with Louisville under Bobby Petrino that have went on to have sucessful pro careers.
The University of Louisville football program now has 17 former players who have been a part of Super Bowl
2013: Seattle â Breno Giacomini, Greg Scruggs

Did anyone who isnât a Seattle Seahawks fan enjoy Super Bowl XLVIII?Perhaps those of you who really appreciate defense (which I am one, being a lifelong fan of the dominating 1985 Bears defense) appreciated watching the completely dominant âLegion of Boomâ, but I suspect most of you who didnât have a dog in the fight turned the channel to âPuppy Bowl Xâ or âDownton...

Pete Carroll is an extremely confident guy, so any talk of the Seahawks repeating coming from Carroll shouldnât be a shocked.
A lot of the conversation after the Seahawks throttled the Broncos centered on the young Seahawks and the potential for a dynasty just festering.
While addressing the media the day after the Super Bowl, Carroll said that his guysÂ would be shockedÂ if they...
Instigator, playmaker, ball hawk, controversy, and an A$% hole are just a few adjectives that describe Richard Sherman. While he may be one of the most beloved person in Seattle, his comments and antics have made him an NFL villain everywhere else. Heâs the arguably the best cornerback in the NFL, and if you disagree he would probably go into a rant about how he is the best in...

ESPNâs John Clayton told Mike and Mike in the Morning that the Seahawks will likely have to cut defensive endÂ Chris Clemons, wide receiver Sidney Rice and and tight end Zach Miller in order to keep guys like Michael Bennett and Golden Tate.

The time for basking is long over. It was fun, nay amazing, while it lasted, and we deserved it. Boy, did we deserve it. Rarely can consecutive weeks feel so different to a fan base. Or maybe itâs just this particular fan base.The morning of Monday, January 20, began seven days of blissful (bordering on euphoric) reflection. San Francisco is a mightily powerful, athletically dynamic...

Disrespectful to the â85 Chicago Bears...
