Basketball games done. (Nice win). First game almost done, but Manningham still making plays. And then Tebow vs. Big Ben. (Make your own jokes about those two). So, some football to carry us into that great bowl game tonight.
OT: NFL Playoff Open Thread
Gooooooo STEEELEERS!!!!! What are the chances Novak's over the shoulder pass is the NUMBER ONE PLAY on SportsCenter tonight? Great Game!
God didn't go to church today...No, he went to Mile High Stadium.
The opening kickoff bounced off the crossbar, rolled to the 20 and stopped, squarely on the yard line where the ball needed to be after the touchback.
Lowest probability thing I've ever seen on a football field.
Tebow also threw three perfect bombs...also very low probability! haha
These games are pretty bad. Except for the very top, the NFL is pretty weak this year and these wildcard matchups are terrible. Steelers-Broncos shouldn't be much better. Low scoring but I don't see the Steelers letting Tebow back in.
I think I'm trying to convince myself to watch them. The Lions-Saints was good on paper, and most of the game, but the other wild card match-ups are a drag. Hopefully next week will be better with the rest of the big guns.
Might be time to rewatch the Sugar Bowl.
Bronco fans received orange Tebow towels. Problem, Pittsburgh?
I cant watch another football game after last nights game. Such a frustrating second half. Its not that we lost. Its that we had a chance if we could tackle or if the secondary could have caught some of brees passes
may be insurmountable
run, run, wild incomplete pass, punt.
All the broncos need is 3 safeties for the tie! It'll all probably happen in the last 4 minutes of the game tho. Until then, I'll watch paint dry...
and now Denver leads
Those were some nice throws from Tebow.
It has come early today. 14-6
Wow, Tebow looks good against another team decimated by injury. Well I'm convinced that he is in fact Jesus now.
I haven't watched the Steelers much this year, but were Mendenhall and Ben's ankle starters on defense earlier this year?
Roethlisberger shaken up by a sack. Ankle injury looks like it just got aggravated. As I'm typing he throws a pick. TEEEEBBBOOOWWWW
...was giving 2-1 odds against Denver winning a playoff game with Tebow at QB, regardless of the opponent or site.
Did anyone take him up on it?
Another interception but it's reversed due to offsides. Could've been huge.
HOW THE *%*( IS THAT NOT HELMET TO HELMET?! &%*$^& YOU GOODELL!
If the Broncos win the SB I'll be a Tebow beleiver.
Have to give it to the Broncos.
Apparently and correct me if I am wrong, whistling the play dead called it a incomplete pass therefore unreviewable - i thought all plays were reviewable including those whistled dead? The "whistled dead" rule is ridiculous and while Nantz is a questionable announcer (see: Fab Five coverage) he was right that the NFL committee needs to look at the whistle issue.
i couldve sworn they changed the rule after Ed Hockuli screwed up the play a few years ago and if it was a clear recovery by one team, they can review it and award possession to the recovring team?
BJ Raji's face during the new discount double check commercial absolutely slays me.
Teach me how to Raji
Polamalu is a dirty player - will enjoy seeing Tebow beat his smug but.
However, given the Michigan folks on Steeler unit, will be a heavy heart that i cheer for Polamalu to lose.
mundy to woodley forced fumble, if it stands.
Did they list Michigan or West Virgina Mundy's college?
Make Tebow go the **** away for awhile.
That's two playoff games So far this season that the refs have totally jobbed a team by blowing the whistle way too quickly On a close plAy
You watching on a delay??
Just still pissed
I logged in just to say how pissed I am that Tomlin didn't attempt the 68 yrd FG. Perfect opportunity to break the record.
Lol Steelers!? What the heck was that!?
Wow, the Steelers and Rapelisberger just got Tebowed
A pretty good, if ugly game.
are total bs.
O my sweet jesus(tebow)........
I don't believe it! Broncos win on Tebow's arm and Steeler's decimated #1 defense
Why is it that both NFL and college football rules suck? Why doesn't each team just get a possession?
Or just play a quarter
10 minutes on the clock. New quarter. Whoever wins the quarter wins teh game. Simple and fair. The new rules try to move away from the old ones but still give the team who wins the coin toss a significant advantage....so they don't really accomplish anything except make it more confusing.
Is there a sufficient sample size to determine how significant the new rules are? How many opening drives end up in a TD?
At least you don't have just a few plays and a long FG winning the game outright anymore.
Actually had no idea there were new OT rules. Not sure how I feel about them though. Its like they knew what they had sucked but didn't want to go complete NCAA and came up with this. Interesting to say the least. I personally don't "hate" it but something about it strikes a wrong chord.
The return of YAM! (yards after Mundy)
You have to feel bad for Denver women. Tebow won't screw any of them and now a really pissed off drunk Big Ben is in their city...YIKES
M. Stafford - 0
T. Tebow - 1
Playoff victories in the last 50 years for the Lions- 1
I have an epic tebowner. Who's with me?
