"The defense won. They got their turnover today," coach Pete Carroll told pool reporter Jenny Vrentas after the 105-minute practice.

These are the type of statements you expect to hear from players entering the biggest game of their lives. It's still cool to see every year. Carroll's crew is appreciating this moment and their chance to make some history Sunday.
Here's what else we learned Thursday.
5. We learned that Bruno Mars is a compact man with an outrageous follicle situation.
7. Dan also learned what it's like to be at a Jay Glazer Super Bowl party. The short version: about what you'd expect.
8. Our Seahawks beat man Marc Sessler got a one-on-one interview with Pete Carroll, who just wants to move Manning off the spot. Sessler also had fantastic pieces on "The Seahawk Way" and how the secondary will try to slow down the Broncos.
