You were that close to winning another lombardi.
NFC West is the new black and blue division, the sad part is NFC West and AFC West meet next season. I don't see Denver winning more than 1 game against you division.
I wanna know how we get some of the people in your front office over to mile high. Denver is soft as butter.
I quite jealous the position SF and SEA is in. The only thing I see breaking it, is when contracts are up and players want more money.
The intensity of the regular season is at a certain level, the intensity of the playoffs is at another level, then the intensity of the Super Bowl is at a whole other level.
When I watched Peyton at home beat New England, I thought, "This is a defensive victory, this stuff wouldn't work against us or Seattle."
I wanted Denver to win, but I couldn't honestly see Manning moving the ball against Seattle. Not the way he played in the AFC Championship.
Your coach said it best, "We ran into a buzz saw." You guys were not prepared for the type of defense you were about to face. You had too much success against weaker defenses during the season, there is no way you could have prepared for a defense like our's or Seattle's without actually facing them during the regular season.
And Manning is not famous for his postseason ability. Sorry but that is just how his career has been.
