I think their schedule has something to do with that. I never thought it was particularly strong.

people speak like peyton got no help today.

they had two kick returns for td's. they had one scoring drive from midway through the 2nd quarter until the end of the game.

it was a team loss. several people did not get it done.

Do y'all think Peyton will get another ring before he comes home to coach UT (j/k)?
No, this was his last best chance.

Even in overtime, they ran the ball twice (2nd and 2 and 3rd and 1). Not to mention some very questionable calls by the refs.

Very funny how people said at Indy he ran the offense and was the coach, but at Denver it's different? Don't buy that one minute. For all we know he is the one who decided to take the knee.

The Broncos' D just going completely idiotic and Peyton's refusal to throw and awkward body language plus refusal to give an interview after the game is why I'm thinking this game was "influenced"

It was a horrible mistake that I'll say was the cherry on top of the crap sundae Denver made, but he didn't lose the game there. Whatever idiotic defense they were running with 30 seconds left is what lost the game.

There is absolutely no excuse at all to let the receiver get behind you in that situation. None at all.

Doubt he will spend 4-5 years coaching small time until he can come to UT. But who knows. I've seen crazy on all sorts of levels

Hoping and keeping my fingers crossed he never comes to coach here.
He def didn't suck man. That defense sucked. He throw one terrible pass but they shouldn't be in OT anyways. Manning did everything right up to that last play. No QB is asked to do as much as Manning is other then Brees. Period.

It wasn't the scheme; it was the Adams kid playing S and he bit on the play and left Jones wide open instead of just staying back and making sure no WR were behind him. I believe it's time to move Bailey to safety too like Charles Woodson did this year for the Pakers.

Bronco's defense is much better than anything that Manning had with the Colts, on paper. In a playoff game, you count on 1) the defense, and 2) QB manages the game. Broncos failed at both aspects at the most critical times.

In my opinion, Manning played well enough to win the game, even though this standard is awfully low for Manning, but he still put the team at the position to win. The defense, on the other hand, failed miserably. Not just Tony Carter, but the entire defense. The most touted pass rush was non-existent tonight, and the secondary (all of them: Baily, Moore, Carter...) was exposed. The failure on the defense is deadly.

He won't get another ring. As for coaching, I can't see him doing that. Not sure he has the patience.

This is a really good point. Fox basically said let the defense finish this. Well, I guess they did sort of.

@Espngreeny: RT @ESPNStatsInfo: Peyton Manning lost his 1st start of a postseason for 8th time. No other QB in Super Bowl Era has more than 4x.
