I about flamed you for your initial post but then read through all the new stuff and see things in a different light. I'd be lyin' outta my ass if I said now that I thought the Broncos would win. The best I was hoping for was they not be embarrassed and that includes TT.

That being said there's a whole lotta sports talk talking heads that'll have the eat crow tomorrow and I, for one, plan on listening to them chomp down on every fucking feather.

Note to Ben; plan on winning the game before you plan your return trip attire. That stupid hat you wore in your post game presser sucked ass.

And now for some reality. I don't pretend the Broncos will waltz into Mass-of two-shits and take one from the Pats. Truth is after seeing how the NFC leaders treated their step children I wouldn't want to be an AFC interloper and that includes the Brady Bunch.

irony

Just read that Mickey D will be joining the Pats as assistant OC to their soon-to-be-departing OC O'Brien. He'll be on the sidelines or up in the booth next week.

Oy, do ya think this'll be an overyly hyped rematch??

I bet all those Broncos fans that were frantically selling off their tickets early last week are regretting that decision now

He's a big guy, but not at all what I would describe as "Tubby."

Can't throw either, can he?

To all his naysayers out there keep in mind that he set a NFL pass per attempt record today that will stand for, oh, forever?!! 31.6 yards per pass attempt completed. Book it.

BTW, there's a great article about the Steelers-Broncos playoff history in today's Pittsburgh Post Gazette. I've followed the Broncos since '76 but even I forgot a few tidbits noted in this article. Regardless of your affiliation it's evenly written and very informative.

I've lived in Colorado all my life, but I gotta say this might be the very best time to live in Colorado.

The Elway years were great, but they were expected to be great. All Pro defenders, great Terell Davis running game and Hall of Famer Elway calling the shots and slinging the rock.

But this? No one saw this coming. A quarterback who "can't throw" tossing wounded ducks to a bunch of no name 3rd string receivers (anyone have Eric Decker in their fantasy league at the start of the year?). We were supposed to go about 4-12 this year. Now we're in the divisional round against the Pats.

I give the Broncos about the same chance of beating the Patriots as they had at beating the Jets, Bears or Steelers.

I still don't understand how Tebow was so much more accurate in college. An open reciever and a quarterback with time should net the same results at any level of competition.

The headlines this morning are saying that Tebow beat the Steelers on the first play of overtime. That receiver burned the defense on his route, stiff armed his way to an open field, outran one defender and bought the TD with one more stiff arm for good measure. That play was all no name receiver and a QB who miraculously manage to throw the ball in a way that allowed the receiver to maintain his stride.

On Denver's last possession in regulation Tebow was unhurried and missed a wide open reciever 15 yards from the line of scrimmage. Missed him horribly. I like Tim Tebow as a person, I love his energy and passion for the game, I respect his personal convictions and admire his athleticism. You must be able to pass to thrive in the NFL as a QB though. Tebow is not a passer and it really doesn't have much to do with his funky and slow throwing motion. He routinely misses wide open receivers when he has plenty of time. His days as a starting NFL QB are most assuredly numbered.

I think 'open' is different in college than it is in the pros. For example, I don't think I've ever seen Calvin Johnson 'open' but Stafford sure manages to get passes to him.

Run after catch is one of those things that doesn't get reported well, but qbs get credit for. Like when a defensive tackle stops a run and the line backer jumps in there and gets a credit for a tackle. He didn't make the tackle, he was just in the vicinity when the running back fell down.

Congrats Broncos. I didn't see the game so I can't venture a guess about how it happened. Maybe it was the Pouncey effect. Or maybe Jesus loves the Broncos more than the Steelers.

Watching Tebow play is painful. It's like watching a pick-up game at a park (chaos).
I figure his unconventional style is stumping a lot of teams but eventually they will figure out what works and that will end his short lived career.

Check my area, I love Tom Brady. For all his accomplishments, he still has bad passes. Missing wide or even in the dirt; as that Tebow pass you reference. There is a lot going on in a very short moment in time. If it was that easy, we'd all be doing it.

Now get off my lawn.
