Elway and Manning in defeat. Well, the dust has settled, and reality is starting to creep its ugly head into our minds. I’m still not sure I believe what my eyes showed me Saturday night, but I’m willing to start believing that I’m not stuck in a 2 day long nightmare, and what transpired on the field really did happen. In a game full of head scratching penalties, non-penalties, and play calls, where should the Broncos go from here? Is this 1996 all over again? Will we rip off 2 straight Super Bowls like we did back then? This is my list of things I’d like to see happen. #1: Apologize to Peyton Manning and Trindon Freaking Holliday. John Fox needs to put his ego aside and have a meeting with Peyton Manning to say that he is sorry and will never, ever, ever tell him to take a knee at the end of the game with 31 seconds left, 2 timeouts, and only needing 35 or so yards for a realistic FG attempt as time expires for the win IN THE PLAYOFFS!!! We heard Fox defend his decision to have Man...

  • The first item is to replace John Fox. He is too timid. Taking a knee with an 8 million dollar quarterback and 2 timeouts is just absurd. If this were wrestling he would have "tapped out". An aggresive coach is needed--one who plays every minute of the game. Everyone in Colorado knew Flacco would throw a deep ball except John Fox---he was too busy looking up precentages to get the proper defense aligned on the field, thereby setting Moore up for failure. He gave up on Tebow and he gave up on this game too.
