Don't blame you Rev. I've never been more embarrassed as a fan, not even during the 4-12 season. I think those that said they are going to prioritize some things nailed it for me.

This one stings infinitely worse than Baltimore. Actually, sting isn't right...this one was like watching your buddy slowly die before your eyes.

The Mane should be a real treat this off season.

I'm not sorry for anything. Embarassed, but not sorry. I was supremely confident Denver would roll the Seahawks. I still don't know how Denver **** the bed so bad on the biggest stage in sports. Every play was just a horror show. The team was just not ready to play and Fox was not ready to coach.

5 SB losses out of 7 games. Tough to comprehend that.

Yep it's becoming a real toss up who's more embarrassing....the team yesterday or the immature fans, throwing temper tantrums who feel they are owed something. Reminds me of welfare recipients who feel entitled and don't get what they want.

I think all three of us (for very different reasons) can do better. SoCal and I are overly upset, you're overly supportive, the reality is that none of this really matters, we just play make-believe that it does.

Yep, defense was not the problem.

I'm not a huge Time-of-Possession guy, but here's how we lost imo:
  • 1st Qtr TOP: Seattle 11:44 - Denver 3:15
  • 1st qtr D solid nonetheless, Sea just 2 FGs, 8-0 score
  • 2nd qtr opens Sea still in possession - drive ends Lynch TD 15-0
  • At time of Lynch TD, TOP: Seattle 14:45 - Denver 3:15
  • Broncos next poss: Drive for 8:39, ended w/ Smith Pick-6
  • 22-0 - GAME OVER

This game cried out for a fast start against an emotional defense-ball control offense like Seattle - we got the exact opposite.

+1

The Broncos even started with the ball. If the "greatest offense of all time" wants to be on the field more, here's a novel concept: try getting ONE first down.

Or maybe I'm still overly drunk.

Doesn't matter, I usually post far less in the offseason anyway and now it's that time to go back to doing other things.

See ya later 'Mane.

I'm not so sure, personally. The entire offense seems to really get off the ball together except for Manning who's heading back under center.

They werent ready for the crowd noise, they weren't ready for anything. They looked like they had crammed for a final exam by trying to learn a class in 30 minutes... when in reality they had two weeks to go over every possible scenario.

They mostly weren't able to handle the pressure. Our O-line got completely dominated. Manning couldn't perform under that kind of pressure. Kind of reminded me of Brady against the pressure the Giants put on him in that Super Bowl. Except this Seattle D is even better all around than that Giants D was.

I'm pissed off about the game, but I'm more disappointed and let down.

I spread the blame around evenly....as entire organization they didn't look ready to play and didn't come close to matching Seattle's intensity.

I feel like I got clowned.

I don't like feeling like I got clowned.

The team took a sloppy dump in their collective pants.

I thought losing a close game was a possibility, but I had no idea they'd see the lights on the big stage and curl up in the fetal position.

The pain won't ever go away. Raider fans are always reminded of the 2002 cluster****.

Eventually Seattle and San Fran are going to have to pay their defensive stars and their QBs. It will be interesting to see what those teams look like after that.

They do have a huge $ advantage having a good, young QB who makes almost nothing.

GTFO Bmore Manning. You're a complete idiot, who doesn't understand a damn thing about football. No one will ever win with 3 and outs everytime on Offense, 2 Ints, and a fumble by ths QB.

Exactly what Manning did against the Ravens, except worse, because most of it cae in the 1st half.

I could have dealt with losing a good game where both teams played well.

It's shameful for a team to come out and make sloppy joes in their pants on the big stage.

I feel like I got clowned....I've said it a few times, but that's what it feels like.

May as well give me some big floppy ****ing clown shoes, a big red clown nose and paint my face with clown makeup and a big frowny ****ing clown face. Don't forget the big baggy clown pants and stupid hat. I need a little horn to honk too.
