What games were considered the biggest? ACC championship games or just SB games? Seems he is far from "umpteenth" time. He just won 2 playoff games labeled a choker. Btw, how old are you and how long have you been a broncos fan?

I think it works like a series of one-year contracts. So if he retires, that's it.

Love that we play the NFC West. They will either make us or break us. Either way we won't be a soft team that makes the playoffs. There will be no skating next season.

We make the playoffs next year but no 1st round bye. it will be a tougher team that will have to take a tougher road.

It cannot be overstated enough about our injuries. The Broncos were devastated this year with injuries. I'm still amazing they pulled it together enough to make the post season IMO. What other team could have overcome the amount of injuries to key players and still do what Denver did?

My only overreaction was saying I'd rather be 2-14 or a Browns fan. Otherwise nothing has changed. You can keep calling my take dumb if it makes you feel better, but I suspect a year from now we will be discussing Fox and Manning all over again, and not in a good way.

I'd rather discuss that than how a crappy 5-11 team is going no where fast. Its an easy argument you have. If the Broncos dont win the super bowl, you'll say "I told you so." Wonderful.

Words can't begin to express how sick I am of hearing about injuries. Our entire team failed to show up for the Super Bowl. Having more players healthy wouldn't have changed that.

Oh you don't get it. They won't just not win the Super Bowl. That's not what this is about. They will either lose to a clearly inferior team in the playoffs because they are mentally weak and Manning is a playoff choker, or they will get blown out in the Super Bowl because they are mentally weak and Manning is a playoff choker.

Problem is retirement is his prerogative, not the team's.

Sure, you can' blame injuries but come on...

7 of 22 projected starters!!!!!!! That's 1/3 of the frigging team.

Manning has won a Superbowl.

Playoff choker would be someone like Marino, who never won a Superbowl.

Hell, Favre only won 1. Brady hasn't won one since they couldn't record the other team.

There are lots of QB's that only win 1. This speaks to how difficult it is to win a Superbowl.

I actually think we need to start weeding out the other chokers on the team as well, especially the coaches. That hasn't gone over well either.

You can't ignore his two playoff victories. Denver is 2-2 with the two losses against the SB Champions.

Why not? You are ignoring his decade and a half of choking in the playoffs. And really, even if Manning isn't a playoff choker our team is still mentally weak.
