Our defense was given piss poor field position to work with, thanks to this fraud of an offense.

Tonight really really hurts. But tonight also shows the importance of a good defense and depth.

We ran out of luck and had nothing bounce our way tonight, a botched snap, plenty of missed calls, bad throws, fumbles, horrible blocking, poor tackling, no pressure, poor coverage. The list goes on. It was a TEAM loss. We need to improve the team. Peyton was covering deficiencies all year, mainly due to injuries, but still. We faced adversity all year, Seattle had their own adversity, but their team is far more complete and sound as a whole.
My goodness. This is one of the best perspectives of the outcome I have seen tonight. I love (not) all the pointed, misguided blame being passed around to the various parts of the team like the coaching staff and others. Face it, there was some reality tonight where the TEAM wasn't good enough in alot of areas.

Absurd.

This loss will hurt the organization and the fans for years. This is a forever painful kind of game, and it will get worse as the shock wears off.

This is only the beginning. 'Calm down tomorrow', haha

I really hope not...but the fact that Broncos lost in epic fashion 2 years in a row is going to be a tough pill to swallow.

Every game during the regular season next year will have the "this doesn't mean **** because we choke in the playoffs and super bowl" tagline to it.

And believe me, the pressure to win will be FAR GREATER in the playoffs next year than this year.

Hopefully John Elway has a plan for some resiliency... I'm not sure what direction they go from here but something must be done.

With that being said, I'm sure Adam Gase will be a much better OC next year with the 1st year under his belt.

Kudos to Adam Gase making it to the SB in his 1st year as OC.

BMORE's script:

When the offense blows up every record, it's Manning changing the play, getting rid of the ball quick to elevate the OL, taking the receiving group far beyond their talent level, etc.

When the offense get's butt ****ed in front of 7 billion people, it's the supporting cast that let Manning down.

bend me over a rock, Colts trash. Manning has nearly finished cementing himself into an eternal punchline.

His legacy is dead in the water, as far as I'm concerned.

All wrong. And sadly, many, many more.

Obviously emotions and over reactions are high in this post for me and I'm aware of the gravity and repercussions of pressing submit, but personally, the follfollowing is THE MOST SENSIBLE and lucid thing I've ever posted on this site

It's high time I reexamine my priorities. I'll always be a Broncos fan, but not like this.

To everyone on the team this day, players, coaches, front office people:

****

You
It's funny Rev. All week long I'd felt pretty confident about this game. Around Friday I started feeling a little less confident and then Sunday morning I kind of had that feeling.

But here is the thing. I wasn't that upset. I am a die hard Broncos fan, but I seriously wasn't that upset. Part of me, since we signed Peyton, has felt like this isn't my Broncos team anyhow. Almost like Manning is just a hired gun. Doesn't really consider himself a true Bronco, why should I?

Perhaps I've just matured over the last few years and don't allow games to affect me the same way. Maybe there just isn't anything that will replace the feeling from 1998 and I realize that.

The Seahawks were kind of like the 98 Broncos yesterday. Not as heavy underdogs, but not expected to win and have never won a championship. There are millions of Seahawks fans that just got to experience what I did in 98. Hard for me not to appreciate what they are feeling right now.

Oh please. That was probably most poorly prepared and gameplanned offense performance I have ever seen.

Cleveland is breathing a collective sigh of relief.

Exactly how I felt. My family was freaking out texting me, telling me how sorry they were, and I just said I'm fine. And I am. Perhaps going through all the years of losing SB's has shielded me from total devastation. I have been much more embarrassed by what Shanahan put on the field in the 2000's and the McD years.

Broncos were beat by a better team and the only thing I regret is not believing my own philosophy that you need a great defense. Seems some think the Broncos owe them something. They don't. They gave us a great year over all but I guess some missed that. I'll take what happened yesterday over being a Chief, Raider, or Chargers fan and what they've had to put up with. Keep throwing your immature tantrums, it's obvious who the youngsters are and who hasn't experienced or recognized true embarrassment.

On to next year.

If anyone can figure out why the broncos couldn't match their intensity then you have can lay blame. I think the broncos just got out coached , way out coached

Meh, after watching Beadles and our safeties stumble **** from game to game this year I knew it was only a matter of time before it really cost us.

They're not alone in this mess, but I've said it before and I'll say it again, the best part off the offseason for me is going to be saying goodbye to Zane.

It's actually losses like this one that make me realize how much I love this team. As sickened as I am, I know I won't care about the loss in a few weeks/days and look forward to 2014.

The whole Oline is average except for Vasquez. Manning's quick release hides the Oline . Go find another Vasquez. Hope Clady can come back 100% .

The defense needs pass rushers and someone in the middle of the field to make the other team pay the price and generate some damn turnovers.

Zero the whole playoffs.

They have to be ready for teams to neutralize manning some during big games and have a plan to win under such situations. I think they will put a big priority on upgrading the defense

One of the Seahawk fans posted last week that watching the AFCC it looked like a bunch of grandma's playing. And it did, so did the San Diego game. Very methodical, thought out games. Made me very uneasy. Not the way the Denver O played most games this year. Did Fox revert to being conservative again? The grandma's showed up yesterday totally confused. While the Broncos were thinking about their plays, Seattle was squashing them. And the Broncos D looked normal, totally confused. No matter how you look at the players performances this one lies with the coaches.
