Super Bowl 2014: Seahawks are first team since 1990 with no Super Bowl experience


The Seattle Seahawks are one of the most exciting teams in the NFL, but they are also one of the youngest. It is no surprise that the Seahawks have very little big game experience, but the NFL Network did some digging and has a surprising statistic.

After earning a spot in the Super Bowl following their win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game, the Seahawks have become the first team since 1990 to reach the big game without having a single player on the roster with previous Super Bowl experience.

The last team to do so was the Buffalo Bills.

If the Seahawks can find a way to take down the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning, they will be at the top of the NFL world with a young roster that will only continue to get better.

You never want to start talking dynasty too early, but that wouldn’t be out of the question if the Seahawks can keep their current roster together.

    Unfortunately, I fear that core team continuity in the new NFL salary-cap and parity-priority era will be impossible to sustain. Dynasties may be impossible, at least until the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires.
