Sealion was treated as just a wide river crossing which was the job of light forces who would capture a small bridgehead and hold on until a pontoon bridge was thrown across.

For Overlord it was understood that everything would have to come over the landing beaches for quite a time after D-Day and planning was undertaken accordingly.
It's almost as if one was serious, and the other was just sufficient to enable the generals to tell a dangerously volatile leader that the planning was underway.
