Default 24 hours later, your position grades

Lots of fingers to point;

Coaches: D, other than ST players were NOT sharp, in game calls were bogus two weeks to prepare: D

QB: Manning not all world but not Tebowlike: B-

RB: Moreno pedestrian, Hillman showed flashes C

OL: tackles allowed way too much pressure, Kuper underwhelming C

TE: Dreesen and Tammie serviceable B-

WR: DT and ED below expectations C

ST: A++ good coverage and unbelievable returns

DL: way below expectations. Flake-o untouched. D

LB: didn't seem like they were a force either way C

DB: F, no way around it. Chump, Adams, Raheebo pwned. embarassingly bad.

Refs: F, somebody bought them off. no doubt about it.

I'd probably downgrade the OL to C-/D and put Peyton at a C-, but otherwise, veryyyyyyyyyy similar

The coaches get a big fat F and Manning gets a C. The rest I more or less agree with.

Coaches:

QB: Manning was good, not great. Not bad either though but did not step up when others failed all around. C+

RB: Were decent when they were used correctly. Fox did not do this often times. Moreno was a big miss in pass protection. C

OL: Did alright i guess. Manning had time to throw more often than not really. Run game had its moments though up the middle yielded little. B-

TE: Dreesen and Tamme were solid as usual, nothing more. B

WR: Black and Decker more or less the same. B

ST: Trindon saved us from being beaten by 2 scores + and STs were generally excellent throughout. A++++

DL: Not good enough. Left lanes open, did nothing to disrupt their pass game. D

LB: Anyone with knowledge as to the whereabouts of Von Miller may contact Dove Valley with information. Last sighted in McKinnie's pocket. D-

DB: What? I'd be generous to suggest that they were playing the right ****ing sport, never mind grade them on it.

Refs: F. As in **** off Roger Goodell or whoever was in charge of assembling that crew on the fly. They had not got a bat **** clue what they were doing.

I can't see giving the ST that grade when there was a badly missed field goal. And a bad 4th quarter punt.

I have no idea how anyone could possibly grade those receivers anything but an A+. They were outstanding on a day Manning struggled with accuracy.

Manning did his job on the go ahead TD. if McCoy weren't a ****ing retard with his 3 straight runs instead of letting Peyton ****ing Manning throw for a first down. How he is a hot HC candidate baffles me.

This pretty much it. 10 plays 88 yards to take the lead late in the 4th quarter? That drive was awesome. Fox and co didnt play to win at the end. They layed down and played not to lose. Half a minute 2 timeouts and you don't even try to get into field goal range? Atlanta did it the very next day.

QB - C. Manning had 3 TD's, but one of those was DT running for it on a short screen. Manning threw some dying ducks a few times. The times when he did have a good pocket he wasn't patient enough IMO and still threw short.

OL - C-. The tackles were getting collapsed regularly, the pocket wasn't there quite a bit.

RB - C-. After Moreno went out, Balt just blasted the backups in pass-pro on their way to Manning. Immediately. They bowled over Ball, they bowled over Hillman. And those two missed key blocks a couple times and instead went into an outlet pattern. Hillman did make some decent runs.

Defense - D. They gave up so many big plays. Mostly passing, but a couple running where they just were not playing their gaps.

ST's - A. Obviously.

Coaching - D. The team wasn't prepared well. They got out-coached. I'm still wondering why the hell Tony Carter was playing LCB and Champ was in the slot. They didn't blitz at all, nothing creative.

WR - B. Difficult to judge if they were open or not downfield, but I saw a few times they were, but Manning didn't try to stretch the field.

LB - B. They did their job pretty well. Just that one big run Rice had where they all got caught inside.

Baltimore tied it in 30 seconds and no timeouts with Joe Flacco. There is no way anyone can truly say that PFM couldn't get us in range for a Prater shot from 50+. That is the beauty of a guy like Prater, you get to the 40 and you have a legit shot for 3
