What a great half and especially 2nd quarter. Loving this game so far!

Some nice passing by Tebow, too. Been a few weeks since this version of the team showed up.

Lest I seem too one-sided, props to Polamalu, too - he is amazing and has made a ton of plays today.

Maybe. I'm sure that's what most people thought that the Steelers would be having now.

Great, now an early whistle by the refs rob thr Broncs of a fumble recovery. I'll be really annoyed if the Steelers score on this possession.

(edit)

Aaagh, now they are at the one. I'm pissed at the refs.

(edit)

And Steelers score thanks to the stupid refs robbing the Broncos.
*sigh*

Yeah, that blown lateral call was terrible. I don't understand why refs blow the whistle on questionable calls. If you let that play go, and it turns out to be a forward pass, you can fix that with replay. But, do what they did, and you screw the pooch.

Broncos should have been up by three scores right there. Just awful refereeing.

So I haven't seen the Steelers play in a while, I forgot how dirty they are. How may cheap shots and face masks won't be called?

All tied up at the two minute warning... Do or die time!

(edit)

So I'm wrong ... First ever non-sudden-death overtime ever. We're watching history.

Y'know -- they make a big deal about Tebow being a Christian

But, the way he orchestrated the offense to let the Steelers back in; just to completely destroy their spirit on ONE play in OT -- that can only be the work of the Devil.

My only consolation is that the stupid special playoff OT rules still haven't made any difference.

Nope, but at least now I get free time to watch Once Upon a Time.

Wow. I of course hate the Steelers--all right-thinking people do--but Denver cannot win in New England, not with Satan and the officiating crew playing for the other team.

Winning games does not make you a good quarterback, it means you happen to quarterback for a winning team.
Lot's of football fans get confused and think that winning is an individual statistic, it is not.
Winning percentage is a good measure of a golfer or bowler or singles tennis player. Poor measure for anyone who plays team sports.
Even baseball pitchers can lose games they pitched well for lack of run support.

Individual statistics can tell you how effective a quarterback is. Wins and loses tell you how good a team that qb plays for is.

Denver beat the Steelers by hitting a couple of key long passes. Defending the long pass is not really the NE D's strength. As a Pats fan, that worries me a bit.

I agree. Heck, you don't have to look much further than Rex Grossman to believe that. But Tebow made some very nice throws in that game.

I'm sorry, when was the last time the Dolphins were relevant?

My guess is around when they narrowly avoided going 0-16, allowing Detroit to do so!



Don't forget that after going 1-15, Miami decided not to draft Aaron Rodgers! You're giving them way too much respect.

What does this have to do with how evil New England is?

Much better than the typical field goal, I'll grant that!
