Let's just give the defense 20 minutes or so to rest up for OT?

WTF?
That's what I was thinking at the time. Maybe Fox was worried about a turnover, maybe some other reason.

They should have taken it as fas as they could & gone for a long field goal as time ran out in regulation.

Yes, the secondary defense was the story of the game. The bad pass that Peyton threw was at the tailend of many great completions. Now that Peyton's story for the season (a great one) is over:

SQUAWK HAWKS!!!!

And my favorite quarterback, Russell Wilson brings it to the other birds, the Falcons.

I was/am amazed at the horrible play by the DB's. I was even MORE amazed at the incompetence of John Fox and Co. with regards to coaching!! (Or lack thereof)

I saw several Champ Bailey #24 jerseys in trash cans when I went out today.

Yeah, Wilson played his usual stellar game, but the secondary pass defense was too loose with 31 seconds left, just like the Broncs.

It wasn't Champ's fault. With the speed and skill of #18 for the Ravens, there should have always been a double team on him, with the result we could have gotten at least one more interception and one less touchdown.

Done with football..........

......... for this year. Might watch the Superbowl if someone I like is throwing a good party. Poor coaching cost the Broncos this one.

After Bailey got burned the FIRST time, they should have made adjustments. That never happened, and THE TEAM suffered for it.

With 2 minutes left in the game, offense has the ball, 7 point lead, opponents with no time-outs left...... decision is made to run the ball on 3rd down and 7 yards. Why do that, when the Raven's run defense has been strong ALL DAY, and a first-down completion means a win?

I am surrounded at work by Broncos, Dallas, Green Bay, Washington, and Seattle fans.

There will be a lot of miserable people.

Too Bad.........

Overtime. Overtime. Never should have been an overtime.

I was watching the game at a local watering hole with a couple of amigos. When they duffed the field goal ...... I looked over at my amigos and said, "bet you a beer that THAT comes back to haunt us." I WAS HOPING THAT I WAS GONNA BE WRONG ....... but no such luck.

Poor effort for sure. Looked like one of my golf shots with a pitching wedge .......... you know, hitting the ground about 12" BEHIND the ball!

Glad that they pulled their season back together as well as they did though.

I have a theory that Manning injured either his arm or hand sometime late in the game. Mid 4th quarter. After that point, all passes were of the short variety, they then abandoned the pass and went run-only as you mentioned and tried to hide Peyton's injury. They continued to run in OT until Peyton's poorly thrown INT.

Just a theory, but I found it odd that they so readily abandoned the passing game. A hidden Manning injury might explain why.

No kidding it shouldn't have.

Cuz if it weren't for two freak runbacks by Holiday, Denver wasn't even in the game.

Defense was on their heels and Offense had a hard time keeping things rolling too. Manning didn't get the time in the pocket he had most of the season and his throws seems to be short more often than not.
