If they played like the actual team they are (and the refs coached a neutral game). Makes it extremely hard to watch or be invested in the SB at all. Both teams last night played like garbage, if Denver played at all like they did in their win streak the last 2 games Denver is going to the SB and most likely a 4 pt favorite, if not more.

I agree.
Hopefully, next season we will get officials that are in touch with the game.
Bill Vinovich didn't officiate since 2006.
I hope we don't see him in future and he retires for good.

Nah, you are who you are.

NE probably wins in Denver anyway if it came down to that.

Mort came out and said the Patriots were hoping Denver beat Baltimore because they matched up better.

what difference does it make when Mort said it? Mort works for ESPN and he sucks.

It doesn't, just interesting they would have rather played in Denver than at home in the AFC championship game.

sounds to me like they knew the ravens were the more physical team. I think the Broncos would have beaten the Pats too for the same reason.

Ravens DBs stuffed pats recievers at the line. Were up in their face. We wouldve played them with a 10-15 yard cushion resulting in them scoring more than 13 points. Our DBs played soft against the ravens. Gave them all kinds of room to get into their routes and burn downfield. Patriots looked like crap against the cardinals yet beat us handily. Match ups are key that's why they wanted Denver. Ravens defense knows how to play them

I'll say it again....even with champ getting beat, and the offense not playing great, and constantly getting screwed by the refs, and foxs conservatism, it all came down to Rahim Moore not doing his ****ing job when it mattered most.

If he does his job we're talking about our chances against San Fran and trying to stop Kaepernick.

That's what tortures me.

No, it doesn't. We still had time to position for a field goal at the end of regulation...

Duh I know they wanted Denver most they have dominated us 3 straight games. NE has the same feeling Indy had against us years ago. Denver has to play a perfect game to win.

no, the issue here is if any ONE of those things dont happen, we are in. but everything bad had to happen for the ravens to win that game, and it did.

Feels like 2006 when we went 13-3 and then blew it against a Steelers team that was a 6 seed and we probably would've beaten 7-8 times out of ten. Then the Steelers beat the Seahawks and we all sat around feeling sorry for ourselves because the Broncos probably would've beaten them too.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda...

Exactly. They got the perfect storm (from opening kickoff until 2 minutes left) and then some (from 2 minutes left until the end of OT).

No no, you are wrong...it is all Rahim Moore and nothing else contributed to the loss. It's important that we keep sand in our vaginas about this fact...and bring it up at any chance possible.

In other words, we cut Rahim Moore and we win the next 10 Super Bowls, bank on it.

Clearly we should cut him and lean even heavier on Bailey.

We had well over 90% chance to win and Moore screwed that up. The percentages were way less to go from the 20 to field goal range (where Prater wouldn't screw up again) within 30 seconds. Don't get me wrong as I would have wanted Fox to at least try with those 2 timeouts. The timing of the play puts Moore in the spotlight. He ****ed up at the most crucial time.
