Seahawks' Malcolm Smith should not have won Super Bowl MVP, says Bayless

Malcolm Smith of the Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl XLVIII MVP yesterday at MetLife Stadium, New Jersey, but the decision has come with its critics. 

It was a whole team performance last night by the Seahawks, as their 'Legion of Boom' defense dominated the Broncos' league-leading offense from the outset. 

The best MVP decision would have been to give the honor to the whole of the Seahawks' D, instead Smith, who intercepted a pass for a 69-yard touchdown return, got the award and the car. 

Sports commentator Skip Bayless certainly disagreed with the decision calling it 'absurd' on Twitter

"Malcolm Smith wins MVP for catching a blown-up pass and running it in for a TD without being challenged? Absurd," he said. 

Arguably, Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor would have made more sense as the Super Bowl MVP. 

After all it was him that set the tone early on with massive hit on Demaryius Thomas, which made sure the Broncos' receivers were running scared for the rest of the game. 

Whatever your take is, it's just nice that for once we didn't have a quarterback getting the flash car.
