Default I feel so absolutely awful.

I can't even begin to tell you how terrible I feel right now. It really feels like '96. We should lose on purpose anytime we're 12-3 with one game to play.

Honestly, if Holiday doesn't return two kicks back for a TD we lose by double digits.

The worst part is our best players sucked.

Champ got smoked OVER AND OVER.

Manning gave the game away.

Von and Elvis didn't show up.

And Refs gave the Ravens literally everything.

And Rahim Moore. I will hate him forever. Even if he becomes all world - will hate him forever. I will boo him any time he does anything.

Overrated my arse. This team deserved to be where it was, it just didn't turn up on the day, you need to bring your A game in the playoffs and that was nowhere near our A game, so many errors this thread wouldn't cover them all.

I know it's not a popular opinion, but although this team was clearly very good they were a little overrated. Our best win was against these same Baltimore Ravens when they were decimated by injuries. We really didn't have any other high quality wins.

Edit to add that the Bengals might have been the best win, as mentioned by Rev in his thread on same subject.

I think the talent was there but the mindset was not. The team, when it needed to, seemed capable of scoring at will. However, if they weren't in need of points, they would play like trash. That made a lot of games much closer scorewise than they appeared. In the earlier games it was a slow start then they'd get firing and score too late. In the later games, it was good point production early then coasting for a bit.

So I think the skill is there for the team to have won the SB but they'd have to overcome the mental stuff. In ATL the team was incapable of figuring out the D and got embarrassed. In NE the hurry up destroyed them and they couldn't respond. Yesterday Holiday was the only one that brought his A game in the biggest game of the season.

We choked it away, I'm devastated. Was DT that well covered or was Peyton pissed at him?

Peyton Manning needs to stop with those 3rd down runs he audibles into. They are awful and rarely work for us.

Conservative playcalling ****ed us over.

This.

I got back from the bar about two hours ago after spending nearly 9 hours there. I'm just now conjuring up the strength to even approach anything Bronco s related (i.e. this board) to even read what's going on. I'm absolutely pissed, just like everyone here. Not much to say, as I'm sure it's all been said over-and-over by now, but what the motherf'n f! We were not the same team today and I hate blaming the refs (because that seems like a cop-out), but holy **** those a-holes did not help us one bit. Guess they want the murderer to be front and center.

Rahim Moore being in position on a Hail Mary seals the deal. So many chances wasted

The sad thing was, he was in position. He had very bad timing on challenging the pass and it was a poor decision to even go for the attempted bat down or pick. All he has do do is forget about the any INT or bat, stay on the ground and when the ball is at WR hands, just rake the arms and shove him OB. Worst case scenario, the WR makes the catch and they still have to go some 20/30 yards for a TD with seconds on the clock because a FG does them no good. That was such a retard mistake it was unreal. I mean, you're supposed to be an NFL grade safety and you look like a 2nd string high school safety on that play.

He was actually in horrible position. He looked at the inside route even though he lad the LBer converging on the zone. He also played way to shallow. Not sure what you were watching..?

And nice job calling me out for saying this game scared me. Looks like they played hard for Ray Lewis after all huh ass? Cha feel?

Raheem and Prater are my goats.

I think the Safeties were out of position all game long.

It's tough, hurts like hell, but I'm still proud of what this team did and where it's headed.

Our time will come.

Bingo - good team but outhustled and outschemed by a team that overall wanted it more.
Lesson for Peyton - 2nd and short is an opportunity to fool your opponent with a playaction pass - so is 3rd and short - audibles to a run by a scatback and or a fullback in those situations are mindless - they remind me of Shananan and his fullback dives

Take your pick for the blame......I really hate that the refs were terrible because half the fan base will whine about the next 6 months.

I really don't like john fox..

I am starting to dislike what he is a about.

If he wants to win, he needs to go out and get an aggressive offensive coordinator.

It is an empty feeling.....but if you,let a team hang around and have stupid blunders over and over this has a tendency to happen. Perhaps like the late 90s team this team needs a "final lesson" before achieving greatness. They threw away a lot today. They were the best team in the league just,like the 96 team was, but you have to bring it when it counts.

It will take awhile to recover from this.

I agree too many times the Ravens were let hanging around. A team should lose exactly zero times in any game with 2 return tds. Conservative football killed Denver and they played their C game while Ravens played pretty well. On a side note in 96 the Packers were best team in the league and I always felt they would of handed Elway his 4 th SB loss putting bad SB memories into crippling loss.
