Just like Jesus would do.

Yes. Because with all of the problems in the world, like famine and child trafficking, your God gives a shiat about football in Denver. Or Denver.

Yahoo Sports...I think I see your problem.

Also, wise ass Tebow brother? Manning got them just as far as your brother, and unlike your brother, actually gave them a chance to win the Divisional Game. He didn't, you know, get waxed by 30 in this round like your brother.

So be real happy in Denver. Make sure you have a couch for him to crash on next year when he's unemployed.

If I were a professional athlete, I would sit down with my siblings and any other relatives with a presence on social media, and make one thing very clear.

"Hey Chris, still enjoy the car I got for you last Christmas? Nice. Alice, did you enjoy the house I bought for you and your husband? Cool. Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know if you say or do one f*cking thing that makes me look bad, enjoy a pack of Hanes tube socks each next year."

Not to defend Yahoo sports, but their front page article right now is Best Playoff Weekend in NFL Ever?

I read YS out of habits developed back in middle school. They aren't great but they're familiar... just wanted to share after subby's "best Yahoo sports can do." AKA Subby cherrypicks a Tebow article and perpetuates it, with the intent of mocking them for perpetuating a Tebow article? Best subby could do, I'd say. Don't submit links like this and they'll fade.

Sports writers will go to any stretch to be able to include the word "Tebow" somewhere in their articles.

As a Colts fan, I couldn't help but watch that 70-yard pass fly inexplicably over all the defenders' heads into the waiting arms of the opposing WR and think I was watching a Colts' playoff game. Things like this just ... *happened* to the Colts in the past decade. When Manning threw his final interception in overtime, I started having flashbacks. I do miss and was pulling for him, but reality is he gets rusty with a week off. Plus, that 9 degree weather can't be doing anything good for him.

It's almost like the team bought into the hype and, I don't know, didn't practice as hard or something. Maybe that happened to Denver - especially the defense - this weekend.

that was an awesome weekend of football all in all, all 8 teams played their guts out, two games came down to last possible second improbable wins, we got manning face and a ray lewis incomprehensible victory speech, schoob schoob'd, richard sherman & cheatin' pete got punked, russel wilson and colin kaepernick proved they deserve more attention than RG3 or andrew luck, no more bronies polluting the nfl threads, no more papa johns, john elway got karma'd, and nfl fans get at least one more week to hate the two most hated franchises besides the cowboys (because the nfl isn't the nfl without some heart-attack inducing hatred)

No he doesn't. Mark Sanchez started the game where McElroy threw a TD to a guy who was wide open from the snap until McElroy realized he was there five seconds later.

I don't even see how that's defending Yahoo! Sports. If you're going to make that suggestion, the least the writer could do is actually go back and make a few comparisons other than the ones he made in passing before going on and on about this weekend's four games.

Just in the last decade, I'd go with 2003's Divisional round:

Patriots 17, Titans 14 - Vinatieri kicks go-ahead FG with just over 4 minutes left, Titans reach the NE 33 yard line before consecutive penalties push them back and the Patriots hold on 4th down to seal the game.

Panthers 29, Rams 23 (2OT) - St. Louis trails 23-12 with 6 minutes left, Faulk scores a TD, Rams convert 2pt conversion then recover an onside kick and get the tying FG at the end of regulation. Nobody scores in the first OT, then Jake Delhomme hits Steve Smith for the game-winning 69-yard TD on the first play of the 2nd OT.

Eagles 20, Packers 17 (OT) - Eagles fall behind 14-0, then rally to tie the game after converting a 4th-and-26 on their final drive. In overtime, Brett Favre throws a ball up for grabs and is intercepted, setting up Philly's game-winning FG.

Colts 38, Chiefs 31 - Peyton Manning throws for 304 yards and 3 TDs, neither team punts in a shootout Indy win.

I know the 4th and 26 play is pretty well-known, but I had to laugh at the above since you just described something I've seen probably 7,000 different times in my life.

Yeah, tell me about it. The one time I'd ever root for Favre because they were playing Philly, and he chucks one off his back foot straight up in the air for the Eagles to pick off.

I really wanted to make a case for the 2002 divisional round as well. Favre's 6 INTs vs St. Louis and the "Tuck Rule" game, but any weekend that features the Jim Miller/Shane Matthews QB duo in Chicago and the Elvis Grbac-led Ravens getting blown out in Pittsburgh can't be considered.

js34603: Yahoo Sports...I think I see your problem.

Also, wise ass Tebow brother? Manning got them just as far as your brother, and unlike your brother, actually gave them a chance to win the Divisional Game. He didn't, you know, get waxed by 30 in this round like your brother.

So be real happy in Denver. Make sure you have a couch for him to crash on next year when he's unemployed.


Rofl, I like how people are using "Manning got the broncos to the same round that Tebow got them to" which is basically just whining about the fact that for all the media hype about the Tebow trade and acquisition of Manning, the broncos (and their overrated defense) will still be watching the SB from their homes...

Denver's defense: #3 vs. the run, #3 vs. the pass, #2 in yards allowed and #4 in points allowed. I'll take a huge upset a la Jacksonville II if it means Denver repeats history and wins the next two Super Bowls.

Who is this "Tebow?"

Yeah I'm not really sure what they're so happy about. Peyton threw 43 passes on Saturday, Tebow had 41 combined rushing and passing attempts this SEASON.

One very narrow statistical category: playoff wins. A category, I might add, is more a team accomplishment than an individual accomplishment.

I'm pretty sure they didn't get Manning so they could get to the same round they got to with Tebow. And they actually had a chance to win until Manning made a boneheaded play befitting of a rookie (running out and throwing a pass late across the middle across his body).

Well, if Denver had Tebow instead of Manning, they wouldn't have lost to Baltimore in double OT.

Baltimore would have beaten them 35-9 in regulation.

I'm actually willing to forgive that (although difficult), but Rahim Moore letting Torrey Smith behind him at the end zone with time running out? Inexcusable.

I finally got over my weekend funk and realized something: the real Achilles heal for Denver, it seems, is 13-3. Think about it: the Broncos have gone 13-3 four times (1984, 1996, 2005 and 2012). In three of those years, they crapped the bed in their first playoff game and were out. In the fourth, they won one game, but then REALLY crapped the bed in the AFC championship game. The two years Denver won the Super Bowl came off records of 12-4 and 14-2. Yes, I know this is simple coincidence, but it's still interesting.

So here's hoping this is a repeat of the Jacksonville debacle and we do in fact win the next two Super Bowls, that we never go 13-3 again, and that this year's Super Bowl winner is anyone except the Patriots.

That was a great weekend - with the possible exception of the Chiefs loss which I attended. I would have appreciated the afternoon game more if I wasn't so butt-hurt over Manning doing it to us again. So you might understand how much I enjoyed watching the Ravens march into Mile High on Saturday and kicking the #1 seed out of the playoffs.

Similarly in bizarre stats, Packers when Aaron Rodgers throws:

0 INT: 37-9 (3-0 postseason)
1 INT: 14-17 (0-3 postseason)
2 INT: 5-0 (1-0 postseason)
3 INT: 0-3 (0-0 postseason)

I don't know. The Falcons had no trouble scoring on the NFL's best defense (allows fewest points). I think it is going to come down to how well the Falcons defense can cage Kapernick. They kept Wilson from running around the field pretty well - Kapernick is better at it though. (he is 6'4" and FAST) The NFC championship game could be awesome... I don't think the Ravens can get lightning to strike twice and pull a victory out of Foxboro, but nobody predicted their victory at Mile High. It might be competitive.
 
2013-01-14 12:59:40 PM  
The Falcons also didn't stop the Seahawks at all. The 49ers aren't going to make dumb mistakes that keep them from getting all those points the Seahawks gave away in the red zone. SF is going to roll the hell out of the Falcons.

Fixed.

Seriously, there's no way Tebow would be able to repeat the (fairly mediocre) success he had last year, once teams got a change to watch film on multiple games, and scheme for his limited set of abilities.

This year, Payton completed 22.1% more of his passes than Tebow did last year, threw for almost 3000 yards more, and threw 25 more touchdowns.

Oh, yeah, and the Broncos won 5 more games than they did last year.

Tebow is not a competent NFL QB. Manning is perhaps the best that's ever played. The fact that some people have a problem recognizing the truth and implications of these facts is unbelievable to me.

Also, let's not forget - he was a rookie. It looked, at times, like he was waiting for guys to be OPEN instead of open in order to make a safe throw. As his confidence and comfort levels build, he'll start slinging it around and make some nice plays.
 
2013-01-14 02:09:36 PM  
Is everyone sure that Tebow has a brother and that isn't just Skip Bayless acting out a fantasy?
