I just don't understand it.

You have a chance to win the game,but you choose to kneel and send the game into overtime.

By sending it into overtime,even if you score your opponent still gets the ball back with a chance to score.

No wonder Carolina canned his azz!!!

This loss is on Fox's stupidity!!!

I DON'T KNOW? FROM WHAT THE EXPERTS AND COMMENTATORS

WERE SAYING ALL WEEK .... THE RAVENS WEREN'T SUPPOSE TO

HAVE A GLIMMER OF HOPE IN THIS GAME. EITHER THE RAVENS

ARE BETTER THAN THE EXPERTS AND COMMENTATORS THOUGHT,

OR DEVER AIN'T AS GOOD AS ALL OF'EM THOUGHT. TO BE IN POSITION

TO WIN MEANS YOU WERE GOING TIP FOR TAP WITH THEM. BUT AS

YOU SAY, AT CRUNCH TIME ...... FOX HAD BRAIN DAMAGE.

You know... I hated but somewhat understood when he would yank the leash on Delhomme and play ultra-conservative when the Panthers had a slight lead..

but...............he's now in the playoffs with one of the greatest qbs of all time. Over 30 seconds left on the clock, 2 timeouts... to march enough up the field to get in FG range so your kicker can put this game away....

Even before that though, his ultra-conservative playcalling limited Peyton, within the final 3 minutes of the game. Allowing Flacco and the Ravens to get the ball back relatively fast, and score with quick strikes down the field.

It sucks. Was hoping the Broncos would win the AFC.

ya know as much as i hate to say it

The Ga Boy Cost them that game, not J Fox

C Baily was abused from the opening gun.....

and the D as a whole played like hot garbage on that last drive of Regulation

and again the Den Secondary was torched....

yes Fox should have turned it loose

but that did NOT cost them the game

The Broncos Secondary did

Manning was suddenly somewhat confused. I am not sure WHAT the Ravens D was doing to him but he was slightly rattled. You go for the win but maybe he was worried about EXACTLY what happened in OT, a Manning pic.

Anyway, I am ALWAYS in favor of going for the win. Playing NOT to lose seems to end up badly more often than not.

you guys need to consider the fact that peyton was frozen to the core, and couldn't accurately throw the ball ten yards. he looked weak and old towards the end. fox knew what he was doing.

I heard today that Peyton's longest completion of the entire game was 15 yards.

There seemed to be something wrong with Peyton...

that it happened to the Broncos on their home field is ok by me.

Peyton didn't really move the ball that well the entire game.. they were in it because of 2 return touchdowns.

And it isn't like he moved the ball very well in OT.

The more likely result there would have been an Reed INT... which I would have loved.

So you would much rather have put it into the hands of the defense that was getting shredded by the Ravens offense on every single possession?

No but I would prefer not to send my offense to drive 50 yards in 30 seconds when they haven't been strong all day, with a HOF safety back there knowing you are going to be passing.

Denver's offense was playing a h3ll of a lot better than their defense was.

Denver's defense was plain awful in that game.

No way would I have taken the ball out of Peyton's hands.

True but it isn't like the they didn't have a chance in OT, the better team won IMO.
