God punishes Denver for cutting Tebow

Baltimore wins in double overtime 38-35 after Peyton Manning throws an interception.

Was Pat Robertson correct?

I suspected as such. I’m waiting for Drudge to lead with a pic of Tebow or such about the game.

Could also be that Manning doesn’t have a great playoff record.

Drive with Manning. Putt with Brady.

No excuse for letting a wide out get behind you with 31 seconds to play.

Denver deserved to loose ...

Tebow did what Peyton Manning did not - win a playoff game for the Denver Broncos.

Tebow left Denver, undefeated in playoff games.
Manning has thus far lost all of his playoff chances with Denver.

I’m not sure how 13-3 and home field throughout is punishment. Sure they lost in the Divisional round. They lost in the divisional round last year too. Only difference is last year they had to win in the Wild Card round to get to the Divisional round, this year they got to rest. Peyton played a good game, none of those turn overs were really his fault. It was the defense that let the team down, way too many big passes for TDs.

If only God really followed through and had the New York Jets win the Super Bowl with Tebow hoisting the MVP trophy after the game... (as a Jets fan, it would have been nice to see).

I think God prefers football to soccer! But seriously, Tebow is an outspoken Christian and a great example of what a Christian should be. I think God follows Tebow.

Whatever some people think of Ray Lewis, the first thing he said after this win was to give praise to God. Just saying.

Apparently God worked by making John Fox into an idiot, because his conservative play calls in the last 2 minutes of regulation lost that game.

Got that one right. 31 seconds on the clock and 2 timeouts, isn’t that why people get Peyton? Good game though, very exciting.

Typical NFL prevent offense. Norv Turner is still the king of poor play calling.

Wow...that last INT Manning threw was totally his fault....that throw was so weak, he hung a ball in the air on a 15 yd pass. A throw that Tebow can make...contrary to his critics

Manning is a very good QB....but his smarts and leadership have always made up for his meh mechanics over the years. As he gets older his not so great mechanics are more apparent. His passes today floated

The game was lost because manning threw the ball directly into the Defense hands. Thrown across his body in the middle of the field. He is an overhyped player who should have eaten the ball or thrown it away.

If memory serves, Tebow actually won a playoff game for the Broncos. I enjoyed that game because I cant stand Roethlisberger..

Tebow can’t thread a pass like that. And Manning has EXCELLENT mechanics, he’s got the shortest snap to throw time in the league. His biggest problem has been not enough coaching and too much predictability. That’s what so regularly kills him in the playoffs, when coaching counts most a player that’s allowed to be his own coach loses. That’s how The Saints beat him, they jumped his favorite route.

The one that got exposed in today’s game was Champ Bailey. Who’s never been consistent, often a very good player but believes his own press too much. He got beat for 2 or 3 TDs, that’s the game.

Yeah, that was a rookie mistake by Manning...no idea what he was thinking. But that game should have never reached OT...the Broncos had it won in regulation.

In any event, very exciting game. Nice to finally see a good one in this postseason.

Tebow may not be QB extraordinaire but the favor of God is on him. Sometimes favor opens doors that talents may not.

His mechanics have always been somewhat suspect

He has shortest snap to throw time because of the way plays are designed for him...not because of his mechanics. When he is rushed...he has Happy Feet, and does not plant them before the throw

Yes Tebow could have made that throw that Manning tossed for a pick. That was a weak throw by Manning, so weak that it caught air and lofted a little....a pass only 12-15 yds downfield. A QB in a midget league could make that throw

However, the Ravens play-calling was even more conservative and predictable: try unsuccessfully to run Rice, try unsuccessfully to run Rice again, throw (but not out of play action).

No he has the shortest snap to throw time because his mechanics are excellent, and he’s read the defense and knows where he’s throwing to. Really, it’s not just me, Peyton’s mechanics are probably the best in the game: http://collegescout.wordpress.com/2009/01/29/the-importance-of-throwing-mechanics/

He does get happy feet when rushed, but of course he almost never gets rushed. And a big part of his happy feet is because he’s one of the slowest runners in the game, the guy can’t scramble. I remember him getting caught from behind by the Steelers nose tackle. If you couldn’t outrun a nose tackle you’d get happy feet when the pocket is getting tight too.

Tebow spent 11 games last season MISSING that throw, and much much easier throws. If he could make that throw he’d be a starting QB somewhere, not rejected by 3 teams. The big problem was the receiver cut behind the defender, he gave the defender superior position, had he cut in front as is his job it would have been a reception. Peyton probably should have looked in front of his receiver more, but it was a catchable ball.

I’m with you. Hubby’s favorite team is the Steelers, mostly because of leftover loyalty from the Bradshaw days. Me I can’t stand them, especially Rothlisberger.

Tebow is a bright spot in the NFL where overpaid, entitled lawless thugs rule the day...but I digress. Hubby thinks I only like Tebow because I’m a girl but its really because of his love of the Lord.
