I think the Panthers bet on the Broncos to win. It's the only reasonable explanation for their lack of effort.

Jake never quit in a SB either

BINGO....seeing Cam at the Press Conference....sulking, one word answers, looking down, pouting....he hasn't changed one bit....he just said, "There was nothing special that they did"

I would have thought he would have matured, but he is the same self entitled person that did the Superman pose when he was down 24 points a few years ago

Even Steve Young is getting on him for the way he acted

Ugh, I'm not emotionally invested in the Panthers but I was rooting for them tonight and god, that was just not what I was expecting from them.

Ultimately though, I think the refs screwed them early in the first. That Cotchery incompletion should have been ruled a catch, and of course Denver scored on a fumble two plays later.

But ultimately they also didn't make plays when they needed to. Good season though.

In a way I agree with Steve and then I also agree with Cam. Cam should've given Denver's D their due. It's called being a man and giving the better team props. However, the Panthers gave up a lot to Denver that wasn't created by Denver's D (ie dropped passes, false starts, penalties after the play, miscommunication on special teams during a punt return, missed field goal, dropped interceptions). Let's not forget the terrible call on that completed pass play.

So yeah, I think Denver beat the Panthers butts, but the Panthers (and refs) helped Denver a lot too. No excuses though; Denver is the better team. Denver was also better prepared for a SB than the Panthers. The Panthers wanted to win, but they were never prepared to win. Denver lost a SB two years ago and they knew what needed to be done this time (and they did it).

And YES, when Cam didn't even bother to recover his own fumble, I lost a lot of respect for his game. I'm cool with seeing my squad lose, but to quit on a play? Even if you thought your team mate recovered it, you still drop down and make sure that the Panthers recover. A punt was far better than a gift-turnover.

I didn't want to see this side of Cam before tonight, but it really showed. Cam is a sore loser and he should've manned-up and gave the SB 50 Champs their due. When you respect the game (and the people who out-play you) you learn how to win. This is true in life and in sports. He's only 26 though; it remains to be seen if he's learned from this.

Are you serious? both defenses played amazing. It was a great defensive football game

When one of the more mobile QB's gets sacked 7 or 8 times they did something, he should have admitted that. I really thought he turned a corner this season, but when he just stood there on that fumble. WTF was that.

I guess he thought the play was dead? I'm also not sure what was going through his mind there.
