Did Sherman, Seahawks crack Peyton's code in blowout?

Well, if it did, we might now know why.
"All we did was play situational football. We knew what route concepts they liked on different downs, so we jumped all the routes. Then we figured out the hand signals for a few of the route audibles in the first half," he said.
"Me, Earl (Thomas), Kam (Chancellor) ... we're not just three All-Pro players. We're three All-Pro minds. Now, if Peyton had thrown in some double moves, if he had gone out of character, we could've been exposed," Sherman continued.
One might think it comes off as more boasting from a player who took so much heat for his postgame comments about Michael Crabtree after the Seahawks beat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
But Sherman apparently was just trying to discuss the X's and O's of the game, which was never really close as the Seahawks blew away the Broncos, 43-8, on Sunday.
He spent time after the game and much of Monday morning singing Manning's praises.
