I think we all know Seattle should really be 9-6. Their gift from the replacement officials gave them an extra win.
They are hot late in the season but 9 wins is not better then 10 wins in a row and a 12-3 record. That's how I see it.
The only thing hurting Elway in all this is the "Manning Factor" as they describe. No problems. I'm sure Elway would trade in 10 of those awards if it meant landing Manning again, with a great shot at winning a Superbowl.
