Patriots favored over Broncos by 3.5 points

We were built around Peyton, that was our number one mistake. Outside in instead of inside out. So, if Peyton did not put up 21 points or more, down we go. We could not get stops when we needed, or force turnovers as much as we needed. That is not a recipe for winning SBs. 

 

Brady has 11 of his 22 postseason wins with the Patriots D giving up 17 points or less, with only one of them a loss (14-17 to Giants), let that sink in. 5 of those came during his first 2 SB wins. The one year Peyton and the Colts won a game scoring 15 points in the playoffs, we won the SB. There is a reason why for the longest time Ds won championships till they opened up things in favor of the offense. The 3 years when Peyton's Ds held opposing Os to 17 points or less in the playoffs (Chiefs, Ravens in 2006; Ravens, Jets in 2009; Chargers, Patriots in 2013), Peyton went to the SB all those 3 years. I am not making it up.

 

Bill Polian, from his Bills days, built the team outside in instead of inside out, which is what Irsay and Grigson are trying to change during this Luck era, which I badly hope they do.

 

Nothing you say is untrue. I'll just add that the Pats probably cost themselves a couple trips to the SB by not having better skill guys on the outside (2006 and 2013 in particular). And it didn't help them in 2011 that they were so shorthanded against the Giants. And Manning has probably had a higher cap hit than Brady every year of their careers.

 

The extremes go both ways.

That SB run we had was very impressive. We won at Baltimore when they had Ray, Ed, Suggs, McNair, Lewis, and a Great O.Line, then we beat Tommy and BB. It gets overlooked because we beat Rex Grossman in the SB but people that don't know football only look at that.

That was the only team in history to beat the #1, #2, and #3 scoring defenses in order en route to a championship

haha this reminds me of a Kenny Chesney concert I went to several years ago and Peyton was on stage with the band all night...   lol   Not sure that his guitar was actually plugged in, but he was having a ball.:hat::billiejean:

Do you think Kenny heard Peyton playing at sound check & went "Ah Peyton, I love ya bro but I doing you a favor by telling my guitar guy not to have you hooked up to an amp on stage." Just kidding! I'm glad Manning let his hair down. He's so polished & professional all the time that it would cool to see him jam out like a teenager in his bedroom before he got famous. 

 

I get a kick out of stuff like that. :thmup:

For those talking about how ESPN and everyone are unanimously picking the Patriots, you'll get a kick out of this:

It always frustrates me when professional pundits act like 'I had your team's back all along'. I can forgive people if they admit they messed up but you gotta take your lumps live on the air first. Once that happens, it's all water under the bridge man. You need to own your prediction failure live though. That's a necessity to me or it would be if I was an athlete on that NFL squad.

Watch this preview of this weeks game if you want a good laugh

 

 

 

The Japanese do a nice job at poking fun of Brady's 'cry baby' status over zebra officiating calls he doesn't like, Talib's knack for committing dirty plays, & mocking Manning's age with the seated grandpa gizmo there. 

 

The cool thing about foreign stuff is that they will highlight things most American media in the US won't touch normally. It's so goofy & odd that it is bizarrely humorous.

On  Inside the NFL, former Denver Broncos and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall predicts the Broncos to not only beat the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, but also to top the Arizona Cardinals 27-24 in the Super Bowl.

This is one of those weird games where all week I have had no true vibes. Like I literally am not feeling one team will get this done. I think it could be purely 50/50 to me due to all the random intangibles loaded in with a Brady/Manning game.

 

If this game was in NE I would take the Pats. Since it is Denver it's that extra factor that makes me think Denver can win too.

 

Just 50/50 to me.......

I can't comment anymore, 'cause I told @dynasty13  I wouldn't comment anymore until after the game, and he'll sure as **** call me on it. haha

 

I wish I didn't get so worked up over these games, but the fact is, I do.    I am hoping for a Good, Fun game, with Denver winning, of course. :applause: 

 

Win one for the Gramz    :thmup:

We'll see if Brandon Marshall is clairvoyant or not I guess Barry. Knock on wood.
