2 Ints don't put 42 points on the board.

 

Even if the Broncos scored on every possession, they still would have loss.

 

Again, this is a team game. Seattle came to win.

FYI, the last time the "greatest offense ever" (a team that ESPN openly cheered for from before Week 1, and this is a term I see used by Peyton haters a lot here tonight) went to a Super Bowl, they put up 14 points (and their QB laughed off "we're only gonna score 17 points? LOL! Ok! Is Plax playing defense?") and an 18-0 team dropped to 18-1.

 

Defense wins championships, ya'll.

I get the Manning bashing by Manning haters. But what I don't get is how you all can overlook how poorly Denver's D played and how poorly the offensive line played. Has Manning played well? Heck no. But there is much blame to go around.

Denver just had to many injuries to key players at wrong time there pass rush is shocking to say how bad seattles o is

If it makes you feel better to bring Brady into it, do so. Not going to take away from this.

 

55 TDS, 607 points---------> 8 in the Superbowl.

They all sucked. Period.

 

Denver's D was servicable for a half, then crapped themselves all second half.

Are you from Buffalo? Only reason I ask is because you said "ya'll" that's commonplace here in Va, but I didn't know it was used up north.

No need to discredit Wilson. They converted Pretty much every 3rd down and most of them were Wilson making great plays.

He is one to admire. He isn't like Kap and RG3. He can actually sit back in the pocket and pass. I don't want to call those guys run first, but Wilson certainly knows when to escape the pocket. Super intelligent too.

I just like Luck's size over him. Plus I feel Luck has shown more playing from behind. Not that Wilson ever gets much of a chance at that.

Don't worry. It's only just begun. If you don't want to hear it, I'd suggest you stay away from TV for 12-18 months.

There was no pass rush and poor secondary play all game. Terrible D. They really need to address that this off season and think about getting rid of Del Rio.

i think they will the get miller back which is big boost cause hes one of the best pass rushers out there i think they missed chris harris alot myself but i think they will try get few players in draft

I know. I just don't understand why QBs get all the blame for losing. There are three phases to the game and the Broncos were outplayed in every phase. It's not like they were in the game and Peyton lost it for them.

Just saying, most teams with high powered offenses fizzle out in the Super Bowl. Happened tonight, happened to the Patriots, happened to the Bills 4 times, and countless other times.

Nah, I'm from Massachusetts. Felt like throwing that term up, lol. Believe me, I don't consider myself a country guy or a southerner at all, lol.

Yeah, the line was poor, Peyton was bad, the D was bad. They probably lose even without the picks. It's too bad he might go out in his last SB like that, I don't think they will probably be back. Football is cruel like that.

    • Here's a good simple/short read on Pinter vs Houston   Film Room: Danny Pinter Shines Against the Texans https://www.si.com/nfl/colts/film/pinter-shines-texans
    • He did it the last drive against Tampa. 
    • Yeah, they will be using their RBs in the flat more often against us, like with Fournette, will run off tackle more without a FB and I am not confident we cover their TEs effectively without playing some zone against their WRs too. This is where our lack of safety depth, with not enough good coverage safeties hurts us, otherwise we could play 3 safeties against them, good game for that. That is truly our area of weakness and if we compensate there, the RB will be left open in the flat for precious yards, and their RBs are good at getting yards after contact. They forced the Bills to come out of their nickel CB formations with a 6th OL and putting 3 LBs on the field to force them to stop the run (A J Klein was on Covid list leaving an inexperienced 3rd LB they went after with their FB). Nick Folk, their FG kicker, is their most valuable player on offense, IMO.     The key again, will be our O, not giving short fields with turnovers, can't preach that enough, even more so against a defensively strong team like the Patriots, which amounts to making things easier for their rookie QB to put up points. They play 3 safeties a lot and their young stud safety Kyle Dugger was even inactive for the Bills game due to Covid, he most likely will be back. Can't panic in the 4th qtr. and start passing against this D, even if we are down a TD, it will play right into their hands. Their D operates based on a 60 minute squeeze. Titans were down 13-16 at the half, and boom, the second half, the flood gates opened for a 13-36 loss with defensive turnovers, and rub routes with YAC for the Patriots, 2 of which went for TDs. The TEs are big bodies used well for decoys on rub routes.
    • I might take TY in a 40 race still over Dulin. He's not the low 4.3s guy anymore, but he's likely still low to mid 4.4s, which is what Dulin is. Dulin just has the size. 4 inches and 30lbs on TY... TY is just to small for position routes when he's not the old TY.   They need to give TY routes like slants, deep slants, seam verts, etc... He's plenty fast to kill through, and over the middle. 
    • Didn't Pinter catch a TD in the red zone?
