Of course he's no Tebow.

Manning is an actual proven quarterback. Not a gimmick "quaterback" that everyone is afraid to break the news to them that they will never be taken seriously at the position.

I know, i just thought it was funny.

Also, completely random facts
- Manning has yet to win a playoff game where the temp is below 40F
- In the last 10 years, there's only two Broncos QBs with a playoff win: Timmysprinkles and Jake Plummer

And right now, the joke among the fans that want to see the loss with humor is that Manning took the Broncos as far as Tebow did.

Another random fact:

Peyton Manning is now tied with Brett Favre for the most playoff losses in history.

Good to see Ryan stepping up in the playoffs again...pass behind a wide open receiver in the endzone, followed by a pick on the next possession...

Might as well start early

Seriously, Sherman, shut up and do something rather than trying to show off...

Yeah, Ryan has turned it around, converting some big third downs with some good throws, the homerun ball, and no real mistakes.

I really wonder if Sherman was supposed to have deep help on that long ball. It looked like Chancellor was supposed to be in center field there. Though I have to admit, he's a bit cocky for my taste, I don't mind seeing him get beat.

EDIT: LOL I spoke too soon about no mistakes...WTF was that pick? Good grief, the absolute worst thing you can do. Terrible.

Even when the Pats destroy the Texans it has been an amazing playoff weekend
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

I swear that next head coach that tries to ice the kicker with a time out deserves continuous kicks to the groin, with a steel toe boot.

Well, Bryant knew the play was stopped before he kicked that. It's really hard to know if he would have made his first attempt.

Though that dude that picked off the hail mary stood up and let go of the ball...he's lucky they ruled him down, because I don't think he was touched.

EDIT: Just watched the replay, he was touched by Miller, my mistake.

I think the worst part is that... guess what? Falcons won the game with 30 secs left in the game. Broncos on the other hand, decided to kneel instead. Makes me wonder what coulda have happened...

But it's john fox...

Hey John Fox, see how you can win a game with 30 secs left? See? SEE!? SEEEEEEE!?!?!??!?!?!?

Well the obvious difference there is that Denver wasn't losing at the time. They followed that up with an entire quarter of not being able to score. Atlanta couldn't lose that game in the last 30 seconds, but Denver could, and ultimately that's pretty much how they lost...a pick in their own territory.

I'm ok with that 'cept for two things
-a) Falcons showed Fox how to play with 30 secs left in the clock
-b) Gotta use this avatar for a whole week, all thanks to Pete Carroll =P

After the Broncos' last scoring drive, they went into coasting mode. They started to play as if this game was only one more thing to check in a list of things to do on the way to the SB, rather than do or die like the Ravens were playing.

Again, John Fox' playcalling is so conservative, it could be mistaken for a GOP playbook on how to win an election.

At this point, I'd like to see an Atl vs Hou super bowl. I likely have a better chance of being struck by lightning though.

What I truly fear is a Baltimore vs Atlanta SB. That would be truly hideous, including the 90 minute pregame special of nothing but Lewis dancing, with commentary by the American idol judges.

The only way that could get worse is if they had Beyonce at halftime.

Hated seeing the Ponies lose. God that hurt.


But seeing Klaud with that av for the next 7 days makes it a little better.

Even if they tried to give that away.

The good ol Ponies...

Have the thinnest air in the NFL - draft a QB who can't throw.

Freezes solid in the playoff season - hire a QB who can't win in the cold.

Honestly, I can't see how it could go wrong for them.
