My favorite type of Broncos fan. The kind that makes their QB a god one second then crucifies him the next.
Anyone that's ever watched a football game before could realize that Peyton in no way bears any responsibility for that loss. You should be kissing his feet for the fact that what would have otherwise been an average team even made it to the Super Bowl.

Let me help since you're lost:

Denver BRONCOS -- Official Thread

or pick from the 10 other these on the subject below these.
I'm not lost, I'm right where I want to be. This is where the Broncos fans are, and most of the ones on here are my target audience. The people that went around acting like their team was the greatest thing that had ever happened to football, and that have for 2 years straight acted like they've won the Super Bowl before they even made it to the big game. At least this year they made it, but still have just as much to show for it as the past 10 years. So I am right where I want to be, but I appreciate your advice although not so much your misguided sarcasm.

We're fighting the same fight here, no need for friendly fire.

You and your 'tiredness' will be put there whether you like it or not.

It is a team game. It always helps to have the best defense backing you. Did Dan Marino choke when he faced the superior San Francisco 49'ers?

From a pure skills perspective Dan Marino was the better quarterback over Joe Montana. But Montana always had the better talent around him (including a very tough defensive squad).

The history of the superbowl has seen tons of cases where the better quarterback gets beaten by the better team (which often times means the better defense).

I really felt bad for Peyton but the fact is, the Broncos ran into a buzz saw. It was a nightmare scenario already with the matchups favoring the Hawk pass rush and defensive backfield but then the Broncos kept making mistakes and the Hawks played a perfect game. Finally having Harvin just made the score worse.

Best of luck next year!

Far as I'm concerned he was injured and the PTB should have known it.

Never been a Broncos fan - Chicago Bears and NO Saints fan forever. The QB is the field general and is responsible for what happens to the team.

When was the last time you saw a player being fined or fired for failing to do his job? They fire coaches all the time - for failing to motivate the players.

IMHO the KC Chiefs were a better team - more consistent

So tired of hearing about all the head injuries - might start watching Rugby 7's.

Default Big loss, but such is life; onward

OK, so the Broncos got obliterated in the SB by a superior team. At least they were only one of two teams who made it that far. Much to do in the off-season, come back better, smarter, more experienced, and better prepared next year. Tomorrow comes no matter what.

Peyton didn't have his best game, but he had yet another incredible season. In my book, he's still one of the greatest QBs, and a fine person. Looking forward to seeing him next year. I appreciate every year that he can play, since he's at the tail end of his great career.
