As I watched Sherman leave the area, my mind wandered back to the team's final chant.
"WE ALL WE GOT," someone yelled after Carroll had finished.
"WE ALL WE NEED," the rest of the players replied, the silver Lombardi Trophy pumping above the crowd, in unison with every word.
And then, on the count of three, the young, talented and brilliantly brash Seahawks ended their world championship run with a single, shouted question that should strike fear deep into the hearts of the rest of the league.
One ... two ... three ...
"What's NEXT?" the Seahawks screamed.
Well, there's only one thing in sports prettier and more meaningful than a Lombardi Trophy.
Multiple Lombardi Trophies.
