No doubt about that. I have always said PM is the best QB I have seen play (started really watching football during the 99 season, and became a Bronco fan in 2000). But there is something that just doesn't click with him during the playoff like it's the norm during the regular season. I have no doubt we will kick ass on O next year, and pretty positive we will be around the same rankings on D as long as we stay healthy.
Still will be very nervous when we reach the playoffs. Not like most of the over confident people we had around here before the Balt game. Playoffs is a totally different atmosphere. If you don't have that killer instinct, we aren't getting really far.
