A WHOLE PIE!

...same old John Fox.

It's the third quarter, you're 29 points down (29 points), you've got one of the few half decent drives of the game going, granted you hit a snag and wind up with a 4th and 12, but at least you're still in decent field position...oh and did I mention it's the third quarter and you're down by 29 points?

Aaaaaaaand you punt :(

That was the point where I said "okay, it's officially over now."

Yes, John Fox is a good coach. Don't take this as a statement that he isn't. But the things that have held him back from ultimate victory before are still there, still active.

Oy :(

Typical. Rivera better keep up his "Riverboat Ron" mantra and play to win, not to "not lose." I couldn't stand another loss like the one to Buffalo this year.

Was that the 4th down that was setup by one of his patented 3rd and 10 draw plays?  Pretty sure it was.  As soon as they ran a draw there, I just started LMAO.  How did Manning not check out of that?  As great of a player as he is, I think I know why.  Even when they were down 8-0, he looked just plain depressed on the sidelines.  He knew tonight was a legacy game for him and he was scared.  He just plain choked.

Yeah, if Fox made a few different calls they might've lost by 3 touchdowns instead of 5.

When you get beat by 35 points, EVERYTHING went wrong.  From the coaches to the gameplan to the players to the execution.  Everything backfired.

There isn't much else he has to do unless you're won of those people who think Trent Dilfer was a better QB than Dan Marino.

I don't really know how much of this to put on Peyton at this point. My initial read is less than 50%, but I'll probably think over it more in the next few days.

One thing I can't help thinking: You'd have thought the Broncos were the team with a black cat mascot. Just about anything that could go wrong for them did, starting with the first play from scrimmage.

It was almost surreal to watch.

Yup all I could think threw out the sadness i saw on the sidelines is that the legacy talk got to him and he knows that. He may have said legacy doesn't matter but he knows it does. He just flat out choked as you said.

They really did play an almost perfectly awful football game.  The biggest thing I put on Peyton is the INT he threw on 3rd and long when it was 15-0.  The Broncos were still very much in the football game, but he forced a pass while being pressured and it was an awful throw.  Thomas was open, but Manning isn't a QB who throws well under pressure.  He's a guy who normally picks teams apart and gets rid of the ball so fast that it takes the pass rush out of the game.  Considering who he is, it was a forced pass.  It got intercepted which set the Seahawks up with good field position and turned a 2 possession game into a 3 possession game after the Seahawks scored a TD.

 

Manning isn't the reason the Broncos lost, but he probably did have his worst game of the season tonight.

One other coaching note...

Jack Del Rio might be the single worst defensive coordinator in the league against mobile quarterbacks.

It was Del Rio - not, as some erroneously remember, Mike Trgovac - who was running The Panthers defense when we lost to the Michael Vick led Atlanta Falcons by a combined margin of 71 to nothing. I've taken note of his coaching career on occasion since, and seen plenty of examples since then of his defenses being ill prepared when it came time to face a mobile QB.

If you wanna win a game against a mobile QB, I'd submit to you that Jack Del Rio is not the guy you want in charge of your defense.
