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.
