All you New England fans, is your internet connection down today? Or are you all crying like Tom Brady did from the first quarter last night?

Hey, now you can adopt that time tested Red Sox motto... "there's always next year".

Gifts galore? How so? The PI call would have gone the other way too, we all know that. He easily earned that call the way he was all over Lelie. Any other gifts? Last time I checked, it took a defensive player to make a hit to cause a fumble. And last time I checked, it took at D-back (or two) to intercept the pass. Just face it, the Pats got outplayed and out-classed. I couldn't be happier that the Broncos shut up the most annoying fans in the NFL.

You mean you're disgusted that to this day the Pats have yet to show a running game? You're disgusted that to this day Brady has yet to show the ability to face an all-day pass rush and not get rattled? What the heck was he doing throwing into triple coverage at the end? I am so sick and tired of seeing Brady get up and whine to the officials every time he's freaking love-tapped. I really don't care what happens for the rest of the playoffs now (although I sure won't complain if Pittsburgh wins) but to see those whiny little Pats fans finally get shut up is all I needed.

*whine* Our schedule is too tough
*whine* Our players are hurt
*whine* The officials made a bad call
*whine* *whine* *whine*

SHUT UP AND PLAY FOOTBALL

Frankly, I'm sick and tired of seeing a yellow flag after what seems like EVERY incomplete deep pass...even if there's good coverage and a defender does all the right things. If there isn't a pass intereference call then the home crowd is usually screaming for one...even if there isn't one. Why? because they are so accustomed to officials throwing a flag after every deep pass. They are way to liberal with these pass interference calls and I truely believe the league should look into that pathetic call last night and hopefully changes will be made. I say this even if it does benefit the Patriots. And please know, Bronco Fans, that I'm not taking away anything from your victory because the Bronco's made fewer mistakes, thus earned the win. Heck Plummer wasn't the one who threw the pick in the endzone that was returned for 100 yards. But I felt that call changed the momentum big time and officials should not be making calls like that in a game of that magnitude. Anyway, good luck to all remaining teams.

Bring back the pre-1978 rules! Bump-and-shove the whole way down the field! None of this "no contact after 5 yards" crap. That was a beautiful era.

The Broncos played smarter football and Patriots made bone-head plays. Thus earning the win. I'm not taking anything away from their win. I'm frustrated by the Patriots mistakes is all.

Go Bronocs... Enough with the Pats ... The win wasnt the most convincing though... The defense held us up, the offense wasnt able to establish the run and hence Jake plummer couldnt be effective and once again in a situation where you dont wuite know what you get out of him..
Things might be better next week(ie establis the run easier) if we play Indy but to answer Indys quick fire offense, Jakes gotta step it up..

[P.S for those of you wondering how I am a Broncos fan, I went to CU for Grad school before I moved here and just hated the Pats from day1.. Dont ask me why]

Ahhh, always good to find another Pats-hater in the New England region! Nice to find you coug! I've hated the Pats ever since they beat the Dolphins in the '86 AFC Championship Game and proceeded to get annihilated by the Bears. If you recall, the one team that beat the Bears that season was the Dolphins, and they were oh-so-close to the rematch everybody wanted. Instead, we got 46-10. Although I have found Pats fans who claim the game was closer then the final score indicated.

Did you see the Bears game? The Bears defender (no 33; don't remember his name) crawling up Steve Smith's back? No call. And I was just an interested observer.

1) NE won 10 straight playoff games; that's unbelievable. 10 games against playoff competition. They finally "laid an egg" the other night. They've won three of the last four Super Bowls. I don't get the parallels with the Red Sox.

2) I wouldn't trash Brady. Who would you rather have? Jake Plummer? Peyton Manning (3-7 record in the playoffs)? I'd love to have Brady on the Jags for even one season.

3) The refs may have been the only people to have preformed worse than Manning and the Colts. Two calls in the NE-DEN game (the pass interference and fumble through the end zone) and the interception overturned on review in the IN-PITT game were chokes (that overturn was just plain puzzling).

4) Can we finally agree that Peyton Manning is the most over-rated player in the NFL. Maybe the Colts will sign Tee Martin and he'll take them to the Super Bowl next year.

5) The Colts' kicker should be given an honorary Florida State diploma - home of the "wide right"

Payton IS the most overrated QB ever, whats he ever won??
Brady on the other hand, his records speak for themselves, there is no argument.
All you broncos fans, congratulations you won, and capitilized on all the PAts mistakes and had an effective pass-rush.
But to say Pats fans whine and Brady whines, I don't think so, they are the class of the NFL never blaming anyone else for there missfortunes.
Please know your facts before spewing crap about your personal views instead of facts.

According to the Boston Globe, Bellicheck was red-faced and visibly upset at the officiating.

My friends and colleagues have not stopped complaining yet about the officiating in that game.

Maybe Brady has managed to keep his mouth shut and accept that he lost. After all the media attention he receives, I do my best to not pay attention to anything else that he actually says.

Anyone would have been upset with that officiating, I guess it could have gone either way, (those two calls), but in the playoffs I think the boys should be boys and play ball, not let officiating dictate points or outcome of games.
I am not complaining the Broncos capitilized and won.
It'stime to pray for snow here in the N.E., this thaw is just awful.
Pray for snow.

1.) NE was the recipient (victim) of two horrible calls, but let's face it, four turnovers just doesn't get it done in the playoffs.

2.) I'm a Jaguars fan, but I have a tremendous amount of respect for what NE has done, and the way in which they have accomplished it. It would have been fun to witness them three-peat. However, one of the most attractive features of the NFL is that we don't get the same teams year after year (like we get in baseball).

3.) Let's hope the zebras don't screw up this weekends game the way they did last weekend.

Once again, ldrjax, you're spot on. Yes the officiating was bad, (not just in the Pats game but in the Colts - Steelers game as well). But there is no excuse for the 4 turnovers...anyway time to move on. I'm hoping to watch some entertaining football this Sunday. If the games are anything like that Pitt / Indy game It'll be fun to watch.

Pittsburghs going to the superbowl

Wish I could be at the game but I have to stay here in Pittsburgh and ski in the rain. I figure Denver has got great snow and we have a great football team. I hope Denvers "Cleveland Browns" defensive line chokes like when they were in Cleveland.

Here's a funny song

You're not kidding! I was wondering when All-Mistake Jake would show up again. A little bit last week, but this was it. I hope Shanahan dumps him, but I expect he'll be around for a while longer...

Not to mention the melt-down of the defense.

Congrats to the Steelers, clearly the better team.
post #54 of 56
You can't blame Jake on all his mistakes. Yes, the INT before halftime was a horrible pass. However, think about the pressure he had to deal with on almost every play. Holy crap- if a non-mobile QB was back there, they'd be sacked 15 times. I can't count the number of times he wiggled his way out of a sack and made a positive gain or incompletion out of it. He wasn't as good as he was during the season, but its not completely his fault. Personally, I'd say the secondary was mostly to blame- I don't think I remember a time when a WR was actually covered.

Plain and simple the Steelers dominated the game.

Denver got their just resorts.

Yes, Denver got crushed as they deserved. The Patriot's game was as crooked as you can get. Denver didn't win that game, the Officials gave them an advantage that the Patriot's couldn't surmount.

Ah! I see you're a Patriots fan(atic). You took the "tuck" against Oakland, but complain about what happened in Denver? Give it up; you can't have it both ways. :

Denver won the NE game; they played better and capitalized. They lost the Pittsburgh game; they played poorly and didn't make the plays that they could have. And I think Pittsburgh wins the Super Bowl.
