****ing tards. You go 13-3 win out to get to the SB and you lose. So the obvious solution to fix this grievous affront is to can the man responsible for organizing the effort for you getting there in the first place. The sparklers were thrilled with how that worked out for them. Most of you **** tards are also calling for Peyton to hang it up. Blow up the team. We can never win. To soft to weak. **** ALL OF YOU!!!

Baltimore won last year over SF. It took a collection of **** up's for them to get the chance.

Bottom line. We played like crap. They played better. I do not think we lose a best of seven against those clowns.

I don't know if Shanny can really put his ego aside and let Elway be his boss. Shanny isn't necessarily the best motivator and he hasn't shown an ability to adapt to a different system and he'll likely bringing his guys (Slowik) while losing Del Rio and Gase.

Gruden is overrated because he took Dungy's perennial playoff caliber team and beat his former team in the Super Bowl. He got credit for both teams. His own Tampa Bay teams were mediocre after that. But he's proven he can steer a ship into port.

Shannon Sharpe would beg to differ with you. He says we could play Seattle 10 times and lose all ten. We are too one dimensional and depend too much on a single individual on offense. We don't have a legitimate threat in the run game, so SEA didn't respect that part of the offense at all. Until we fix this problem, we will continue to be exposed when it really matters.

@Agamemnon has hit the nail on the head. Fox hasn't really done anything other than leverage a HOF QB for the last two years. Sure, he was brought in to bring some stability to a sinking organization after the scorched earth policy of his predecessor, Josh "Stalin" McStalin.

But he never embraced Tebow (the fans forced his hands), and his Ultra-Mega Conservative brand of coaching and game planning just isn't going to cut it anymore. Thanks for stabilizing the ship, Fox, but it's time for you to move on.

Gregg Easterbrook's "Sour Play of the Game" in TMQ was Fox's decision to punt on 4th and 2 in the 1st quarter:

"Denver's record-setting offense opened the game with a goofy safety, but the Broncos' defense held Seattle to a field goal following the free kick. So it's Bluish Men Group by 5-0. No problem for the highest scoring team in NFL annals. Denver took possession, advanced to fourth-and-2 on its 43 -- and punted. What good is the highest-scoring offense in NFL history if the Broncos are afraid to try on fourth-and-short from midfield?"

That decision is ALL on Fox.

Trust me, Fox needs to go. He's not someone who can take Denver to the next level.

Their defense was so dominant that we didn't get a first down until the 2nd quarter. Eric Decker had 1 catch for 6 yards. We scored 8 points and that was during Orton time. They punished our receivers so badly that Demaryius separated his shoulder and the other receivers stopped selling out because they got hit so hard and so often. Knowshon Moreno had 17 yards on 5 carries before getting knocked out of the game. Montee Ball had 6 carries for a yard. What exactly about their defense bending us over a pinball machine makes you think we'd beat them in the majority of the times we play? If anything I thought it was a devastating indictment of the finesse style of offense we run. I hope you're right man, but that's sure as hell not what I saw.

Fox will be here one more year. It's too late to start the coach search. He was hired because at that time there was no one available and I see Elway canning him after this next season, especially after the bonehead moves against Baltimore and the SB. Elway's too competitive to keep putting up with this.

Shanny: he'll want Manning moving laterally which is what has been needed all season. And reduce his release time.
Billick: he'll scrap the linebacker crew we have sim DannyT and get us a decent backfield on defense
Gruden: he'll take too long for a SB win
Fox: NO ONE WAS EXCITED ABOUT THIS HIRE TO START WITH...so easy come easy go.

How about a couple of dark-horse candidates.

A) Fire BOTH Fox and Del Rio. Both of them are re-treads anyway.

B) Promote Eric Studesville to Head Coach, and ask him to make Keith Burns Denver's new DC.

I thought Studesville did a great job as Interim Head Coach after McStalin was sent packing, and he seems to have a personality more like Pete Carroll and less like Shannyham or Fox or Del Rio.

And Keith Burns knows how to lay on the wood and give 100% on every single freakin' play!

I don't think we are that one dimensional. We played a bad bad bad game. It is in our ability to play better on offense. An intact O Line would have helped. I don't think we give enough credit to what we accomplished with what we had left at the end of the season.

It's not what I saw in that game either. We got killed all around. No question. Having said that I think we can adapt to a situation. So many are acting like we are a team that lucked into the SB. We punched ourselves in the mouth with the first play of the game and played shelled shocked from that point on. Yes they played great. But we played so far below what we are accustomed to. Do you think that was their best effort against our best effort?

For me, no to all, especially number 2. About hyperventilated seeing that. One of the worst times in franchise history and we want to move backwards. Hell, no. Thank heavens he and Elway aren't on the best of terms.

I think the only option, really, is to ride out the next year with John Fox and hope for the best. After listening to the press conference, I'm convinced John Elway has come to this conclusion as well.

Yeah great idea. Bring in the guy who was responsible for the worst special teams unit in the league this year to be your DC. You are such a special special kind of stupid.

What exactly were you possibly right about in regards to Elway when the hired him? What specifically? Just so, you know, we have another one of your amazing takes really spelled out here for posterity.

When we hired him I saw it as cronyism and did not think he had the qualifications. He's made the Broncos much better since taking the job so I recanted that. But if he extends that ****ing loser coach after this travesty of a Super Bowl I will be convinced that he just got lucky and that he really doesn't have a clue about building a championship team.
