They both lost in the second round. How do you figure the Broncos did better?

The Broncos won a game. Remember?

The Packers got a bye and then choked.

So you consider winning a first round game better than getting a first round bye? I think you are going to be in the minority with that.

Coulda Shoulda Woulda all you want, Tim Tebow won a playoff game and Aaron Rogers did not.
A first round bye is the same as winning a 1st round game; both get you into the second round. The difference is that a 1st round bye most likely means you had a better regular season. Would you rather have a guarantee of going to the 2nd round with a bye week or stand a chance of being eliminated in a 1st round playoff game? Be honest now. I don't know one fan, GM, or owner that wouldn't prefer the bye week which is a GUARANTEE of a WEEK 2 GAME.

Broncos officially ink another former CSU Ram. They signed Caleb Hanie to a 2-year deal to back up Peyton Manning. I don't wanna hate on my alma mater but this was a dumb move. Hanie was a train wreck last year when he replaced Jay Cutler.

Who's to say what a better accomplishment is... for one team to make the wildcard spot or the league leader with the top seed. Look at how many teams have won the Super Bowl from the wildcard spot.

The New York Giants came in in the same spot for the NFC as the Broncos did for the AFC... at the bottom of the respective conference leaders.

The Broncos not only went to the playoffs for the first time since 05'... I believe... but wone their first playoff game since Jake Plummer.

I was fully expecting the Broncos and TT to achieve even greater works for this next season... if given the chance.

Oh... and props to John Fox as well. He's not mentioned here much.

Sorry, I didn't mean to start a debate! I've have been hard on Tebow, as I have always been a fan of long bomb passes! Started years ago, my dad loved QBs, he loved Starr/Bradshaw. Jim McMahon reinforced my love of QBs! My dad could throw, I hated playing catch with him, easy, dad, easy!

McG has some good points and Packers did better when they had to fight from the 10-6 wildcard spot!

Is Heine (sp?) a good pick up? I didn't follow him much in Chicago, I think he had some good games??
