    Yes. Tomlin is at his best prepping a team that doesn't seem to have a chance.

    The problem is how unprepared the team is when playing a game that should be a cakewalk.

    I'd like to see either Arizona or Carolina win it.

    Agreed. I actually don't quite as heartbroken about this loss... thought we did well on most fronts (except kickk returns) but man... all those throws towards the line of scrimmage at the end were making me NUTS!. We needed to be going down field (though Ben's protection... strong for much of the game... seemed to evaporate)

    I hate a loss but I was prepared for this one. Gallant effort with such a banged up crew.

    Agreed. Lots of things we can b***** about, but they were seriously banged up and had a defense coming in that no one could have expected much out of. But the effort a lot of guys put in is worth tipping a cap to.

    What really bothers me is New England. Denver's offense sucks. I don't know that their D is enough to shut Brady down, even with a depleted WR and RB corps. They had a hard time winning a home playoff game against a QB with a bum shoulder, missing the best WR in the league, a 3rd/4th string starting RB, the 31st rated passing D. I can't stand the Pats, but is Denver capable of stepping up and beating them?

    I like the fight in the team to have a chance at the end. Tomlin should get some credit for that even if he contributed to some losses with some questionable decisions.

    We can dissect the season all we like. The fact is, with the body count we had, we did bloody well to get here, and we should have won this game.

    A fumble by your fourth string RB is a shame, but not to be ashamed of.

    At the start of the game, I would have said, ok, if we lose, we were banged up, and we did our best.

    The extent to which we outplayed them makes this loss hurt. But I'm still proud of what the team did, and how weovercame adversity all season.

    I am praying for 50 mph winds and the Broncos running it down the Cheatriots throats, and lady Brady not being able to throw it.

    He saw a big play opening up, and probably got loose. It was a dumb play, but the guy was on the PS three weeks ago.

    Refs spotted Denver 11 points and it was all the difference.

    But in the end, we didn't seal the deal when we had the chance. Bummer of a season with a lot of "could have beens" with our injuries and bad luck.

    Get a lockdown corner or 2 in the off-season, and we're winning it all next year.
