With the Seattle Seahawks defeating the Denver Broncos 43-8 last night in Super Bowl XLVIII, it put the Seahawks in rare company.

First of all, they have won their first Super Bowl in franchise history. Secondly, head coach Pete Carroll became the third coach in NFL history to win a Super Bowl and a National Championship in college football. The only other two coaches to do that are Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer.

Finally, the greatest significance of the win is that Russell Wilson became the second African-American quarterback in the NFL history to win a Super Bowl. The first was Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams back in the eighties.
