After one of the most anti-climatic Super Bowl games in NFL history, sports fans across the globe are waking up on February 3rd, 2014 wondering what to do now. Football is addictive and powerful, but we won’t see a pigskin flying around until August when the preseason games begin. With that being said, it’s time squeeze every last drop out of the Seattle Seahawks‘ dismantling of the Denver Broncos.

Russell Wilson was the fifth quarterback selected in the 2012 NFL Draft and now he’s the only signal-caller to be selected that year with a Super Bowl ring. Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill will all serve as competition for Wilson moving forward, but right now it’s hardly a legitimate race:
