1. The Patriots blew their load on the draft last year. No more two 1st round draft picks in every draft.
2. The Patriots draft after the Broncos this offseason.
3. Brandon Lloyd did not pan out the way they hoped he would. He will be 32 next year, and took a major hometown discount to play for the Patriots ($900k in 2012)...after he spurned the Broncos during contract negotiations.
4. Wes Welker will be a 32 year old free agent, who will demand a ton of scratch. It will be interesting to see if they let him walk, or pay him.

Even tho I hate the Ravens, I am glad the Patriots lost today. I wish Tom woulda thrown a few more int's and looked like an ass-clown even more than he did the second half. His pouty face is priceless!

Hell NO! I don't know what it is with the popular masochism involved in rewatching that. I ain't havin' none of it.

The Broncos made enough mistakes on their own, I accept it and I'm moving on.

There was a great thread earlier this year about the destruction of the Death Star and a Mod put it in the Butt. That mod should be held accountable for this atrocity.

Other than that, I hate the Pats.

I created that thread...and it's why I created this one.

Ah yes....good old Karmic retribution.

There's always next season...I couldn't say that last week. Now I can.

i'm not gonna lie, if we didn't make the SB, i wanted to see a Harbaugh bowl.
this is gonna be hella fun to watch with there likely being some crazy crap going on in the game to one up the other.

i know one thing though. Joe Flacco is getting paid.

Kudos to him. For as much **** as he takes, he plays well in the playoffs and big games and honestly he has been the best QB in the playoffs this year.

Yeah, beat Champ Bailey 3 times deep. I don't know that any QB has ever done that.

How many QBs in NFL history have at least one playoff win in each of their first five seasons? Flacco now has eight playoff wins total.

I disagree.... I think all it says is that we'd have beaten the Pats.

most of the flack he takes is dumb because they expect him to play like Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees and he's not that type of QB.
of course it didn't help by him announcing that he thinks he's the best QB in the game.

He takes **** because he brings it upon himself with his comments.

he played great though, he'll get paid.

That wedding picture he took with his wife snapping him the ball still bothers me.

Beat Champ twice actually on actual catches for TDs... two other times he got in front of Champ in the first half were incompletes and Smith had little chance to catch those balls.

In the second half he has like 1 catch I think as Champ made adjustments at half and pretty much shut him down.

The second TD to Smith was really good coverage by Champ, it was just a damn good play by Smith on a very well thrown ball where a streaking Smith had to adjust his speed and come back slightly while Champs momentum carried him past.

That happens to every CB mediocre or HOF level in the NFL. Champ definitely had an off first half at the wrong time, but he recovered nicely showing he still is on the ball.,, just a bad half game.

Champ's is gonna have to come back better than ever. Fox said he'd be staying at CB. Ball in or ball out.

I also had mixed emotions following the game. On one hand, I am glad the Pats got embarrassed tonight. On the other, I feel the pain of knowing we completely blew an opportunity to get to the SB. Whether or not we would have beat the Pats, idk., but we should have had the chance.

All that said, I feel a lot better now than I did last week. The team that beat us did so by 3pts. and needed a lot of help from the ***hole zebras. Despite that, we had the game won, and we can argue the conservative play calls, but it was breakdowns in the secondary that screwed us in the end(no pun intended),
IMO. That is fixable this offseason.

We got beat by the team that is going to the SB. Tonight's game confirms to me anyway, that we are close. Real close.

So the Ravens dropping 38 on us, our having an extremely cautious gameplan and playing not to lose instead of to win didn't account for the loss, it was all the refs?

I want an excuse for the loss bit really there isn't one. We played a mediocre game against a highly motivated team that got hot at the perfect time

I didn't watch the game but the score indicates the Ravens won the game hands down. They were damn near fluky and miraculous beating the Broncos (through they deserved the win more than the Broncos).

1996/7=2012/3
1997/8=______

Fill in the blank. Go Broncos.
We were a$$ raped by the refs

WE need to draft a force at MLB and a DT Who can command double teams, Henry Melton would be ideal. Draft a MLB moving up if they have to. Sign Melton in FA, draft or trade for a RB in the Frank Gore/Ray Rice/Kid in TB mold.

WE need to have a finess passing game backed by a power run game and a physical D that is strong in the middle of the field and down the seams.
