Just throwing it out there... but imagine the response if Tebow had been the QB with this kind of comeback. Holy f*ck, ESPN Headquarters would drown in a sea of jism akin to the great molasses flood of 1919.

I like how, even in the game recap, they're talking about how "only Manning could've come back like this"

Um, I think a LOT of QBs could come back from a 24-0 deficit if their opponent turned the ball over five times in the second half, went for -4 yards on their only other drive, and their defense scored 14 points.

And blatant holding is overlooked to keep the golden cow safe from contact.

The thing I find fascinating is that Peyton is staring games so poorly. For whatever reason, he's just not in sync with his offense at the start of games. Then, suddenly, the switch trips and he goes from "inept" to "shredding the defense" in a series.

I'd love to know what his new keys are, because it looks to me like he's seeing something differently.

Rivers lost this game as much, if not more than Manning won this game. If you can't take care of the ball to hold a 24-0 halftime lead, you really shouldn't be out there.

This wasn't really his fault. His team muffed two freaking returns in the first quarter. The one game I remember where I really thought it was Peyton's fault was the ATL game.

He has been like that a lot.  He's a rythm QB.  And his receivers aren't yet in sync with him.  That is why he goes to Stokley and Tamme so much.  They have worked with him in the past.  And once he gets some rythm, you can't stop him.  He will eat you alive.  And he can find that rythm by adjusting during the game better than most coaches.  He is a truly amazing QB. 
 
That said, he did a good job second half.  That escape from the sack...awesome.  But the reason they came back was the bad play of San Diego's Rivers.

And he had a touchdown removed because there was an extra defender wearing the number 40 just laying on the field.

They were comparing Rivers to Fouts last night, saying he could be another QB to get into the HoF without a championship.

Since when was Rivers in the HoF discussion? Did I miss something? I mean, yeah, he's a very good QB, and on paper has some nice numbers, but HoF? REALLY?

Also, is there really a Chargers fan on this planet delusional enough NOT to wish Rivers had never been drafted and they had just stuck with Brees? To me it's one of the all time GM f*ckups.

Ah, yes, the Tebow Transitive Property of Winning, seen yesterday for the first time in its second degree of separation. Tebow played for the Broncos, which inspired Peyton to play well, which inspired the defense to play well, which caused the defense to win the game. Therefore, really, Tim Tebow is to thank for the Broncos win yesterday.

Thank you, Timmysprinkles.

You realize that after three seasons, Drew Brees had roughly the exact same stat line as Kyle Boller through three years, right (within five yards of each other, 2 TD and 1 INT)? Brees never did anything until after Rivers was drafted.

/technically, they drafted Eli Manning and traded

My understanding is Brees wanted out either way. But an equally good question would be, do they wish they had hung on to Eli Manning instead of trading him for Rivers? Or do they wish they had grabbed Peyton instead of Ryan Leaf?

Wow. Now that I think about it, San Deigo has had more shots at more legendary QBs than any other team out there, and yet somehow, they've come up short every. single. time. Although admittedly Rivers is a faaaaaar better consolation prize than Leaf.

Didn't really have a choice on that one since Peyton was off the board. I mean, at least they kinda had a choice with the other ones.

If you've got a 24-0 halftime lead, why are is your quarterback even in the equation? That's when you start feeding it to your back every down and grind out clock. If you are throwing at that point, then your team has a glaring offensive hole

Having a hard time imagining the part where Tebow throws for 300+ yards and 3 TDs.

At the same time they have gotten to the playoffs a lot, and even without LT and a good defense they are a winning team. Like last night. For a half.

I think you have to remember just how crappy Brees was in much of his tenure with SD. He lost his job to an aging Doug Flutie at one point. He was voted "Comeback Player of the Year" despite not being injured...he just sucked up till then. There was a reason the Chargers had those high draft picks to get Eli/Phillip in the first place.

So he had one good year and Rivers held out training camp and everyone was going "Hmm, now what do we do?", they franchised him to think about it ... and then the Broncos broke him in the last game of the 2005 season. Bye-bye. Not surprising or controversial at all at the time.

Manning was 13 of 14 for 167 and 3 TDs in the second half. I think it's safe to say (i) not a lot of QBs could do that (ii) he gets a good deal of credit for the comeback.

The real fark up was getting rid of Schottenheimer and bringing in Norv Turner and then standing by him like an abused house wife.

Also as mentioned it wasn't until Breesus went to that comfy done and 50 pass attempts a game that he became worth a shiat. His time in San Diego was unremarkable and he was hurt. I'd guess SD fans are fine that they got Rivers instead, even though they blew their chances when they were in their Super Bowl window a few years back. Now they're in "not quite rebuilding but not quite SB mode".

That was a big part of the problem. They tried to just run, got nowhere because it's easy to stop the run when you know the other team is going to run. Then on 3rd they'd try to force a throw.

just for the record:
Passing..................................................Rushing
............COMP...ATT....YDS...TD ..INT.... ATT...... YDS... TD
Rivers 2069...3246...25778..173.. 87.... 201........ 307..... 3
Brees 3752 ..5715.. 42462.. 295..152.. 288........ 562..... 9

Which means that rivers averages 7.192 yards per attempt and Brees averages 7.42, the difference isn't huge.

Schottenheimer deserved to lose his job, given the complete and utter lack of discipline the team exhibited in blowing that playoff game to the Patriots. And for not immediately beating Marlon McCree to death upon hearing McCree say that yes, he would intercept a fourth-down pass again (he fumbled, thereby giving the Patriots their shot at winning).

Turner does not deserve to be a HC, however.

I don't watch football anymore - too many damn commercials - but noticed last night that this game was on. Caught it near the end of the first quarter, had to go to bed before the 2nd was through (it was nearly 4 AM). So I got to see most of the bad parts. A pity. Would have been a great 2nd half to see, especially for someone who watches so little of the sport these days.

Biggest Comeback in Monday night football history?

Broncos down 24 with a half to play and Denver got the ball to start the second half on which drive they scored.

Jets were down 23 with a QUARTER to play.

I'm not demeaning what the Broncos did by any stretch, but the Monday Night Miracle IS the comeback.

Considering who's the owner...I don't blame him.

The Mannings sniffed out who Spanos really was and decided to take their chances with the Giants.

Worked out pretty well.
