Yeah, adjustments are key and don't get the Steelers in the game. I know they had injuries, but they seemed to stick with the exact formations and game plan. I don't think the Pats will make that mistake.

If its a close game at half time then I think the advantage is to the Broncos as Tebow seems to excel during the second half especially during the 4th quarter. Remember the last game the Broncos lost it during the second quarter with the 3 turnovers that New England turned into 13 points.

That's true, as the final was 41-23 the Broncos 3 turnovers was a factor in them losing by 3 scores.

Then there is another reason and the Bronco defensive brain trust better have their thinking caps on for this one. Deion Branch, Wes Welker, Dan Gronkowski, and Aaron Hernandez are as good a group of pass catchers in the AFC. I take that back, the NFL!

In the game between Denver and New England a few weeks ago the critical thinking was to do whatever it takes to shut down Gronkowski, who by the way is an absolute freak of nature. Well, they did kind of control him somewhat, if memory serves he caught 4 balls for a little over 50 yards. Which left the other tight end, Aaron Hernandez having the Broncos secondary look cross-eyed (pun intended) as his crossing patterns were very effective.

Dan Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez. Remember those two names as both are second year players. And both can flat out play!

The Pats are also a good second half team. They come out at the 2nd half like a different team most times. This is going to be a great game. (I hope) Tebow is like Brady used to be, a QB who could and would scramble for yardage. Unfortunatly Brady has become too valuable to be allowed to do that anymore.

You don't watch many Pats games, do you? He never comes out. Maybe late in the 4th.

The game is not over that is why Brady is not out. Do you want the Patriots to slow down so Denver can catch up or recover from this ass whopping??

My bad. Most teams that are leading a playoff game by 5 touchdowns in the 4th quarter protect their starting QB. Then again, not all coaches are megalomaniacs either.
