Bill Simmons (http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/7459090/the-return-all-football-mailbag) came up with the following one-liners that Jim Nantz *could* have said following DT's game-winning catch & run in OT:


"Eighty yards, no flags, one miracle!"

"This is the dawning of the age of Demaryius!"

"Sudden death, sudden life, Tebow rises again!"

"Look out, New England — the white Bronco is still on the loose!"


Instead, this is what we got:


"Denver is going to New England!" and then,

"The new overtime rules!"

"Thank the Lord! A play-action pass on 1st down!"

"Look what McCoy drew up at halftime!"

I didn't think it was that bad. What he said was better than an OJ reference. He went into the new rules as a way of emphasizing that they didn't matter because it ended on a lightning bolt of a play.

The first one was good but the other 3 were meh.

You didn't like the "Dawning of the age of Demaryius" one? I thought that was clever.

It was clever but that was the problem. It was too cute. It was too cheezy.

Something like "Mile High Magic strikes again and the Broncos are headed to New England!" would have been better.

And then he could have followed that by saying, "the Broncos have climbed the mountian in one play and 80 yards!"

"Look at Demaryius go! He's got 'Running Away from the Cops' speed!"
