Knighton re-watched Super Bowl ‘a lot,’ hates Seahawks

Look up the word “agony” — defined as “extraordinary, and often long term, physical or emotional pain” — and you’re likely to find a picture of Pot Roast.

And I don’t mean the delicious delicacy. Rather, Broncos mammoth defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, who’s having trouble letting go of the team’s blowout loss to the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII.

After Thursday’s training camp practice, Knighton told reporters he’s re-watched the 43-8 beatdown “a lot,” causing him to develop a disdain for the opponent.

Just last week, Knighton seemingly came to grips with the situation, welcoming Seattle fans to boast about the victory.

He’s gone backward from acceptable to anger, completely throwing off the five stages of grief. But that’s OK, because he has the blessing of Peyton Manning, who similarly struggled with last season’s close-but-no-cigar finish.

With a new campaign on the horizon, it’d behoove Knighton to move on from the agony of defeat (see what I did there?). Six months is a long time to hold a grudge — a largely misguided one at that.
