    Dude, that would have been a valid excuse for EITHER Manning or Romo. Your defense should never give up that many yards/points. The more a QB has to do the bigger chance you have at making mistakes. This should be a simple concept.

    And if you remember correctly, that was a pretty dynamic Broncos offense and we had a pretty crappy defense. The offense wasn't the problem in that game.

    Escobar screwed the pooch on that pic, big time.

    The first thing they coach you as a receiver on patterns like that is to angle back to the QB. Escobar rounded off his route and allowed the DB to cut under him. It was obvious as it was happening in real time to anyone with a clue. Receiving 101. Escobar was a ***** who avoided contact and he blew that play and let his QB, the team and us down.

    Romo's biggest flaw was to often trusting his guys to make a play. With some of the clowns he had to babysit no wonder he tried to do to much at times.

    LOL then you should understand why the ball came out "soft" and that Romo did exactly what needed to be done in the pocket.

    Not me. Never have and never will. Go watch the 1992 championship game. That team would have stomped Manning, 31-20.

    Yeah, you knew the olineman would step on his foot as he threw it and the LB would dive and make the best interception of his career.

    Probably didn't predict an int on any of the other 8-9 drives the rest of the game either. So got that right too

    Incredible psychic skills!

    Thats the point though.

    2013 team with the 1992 defense wins by 4 tds that day
    Probably 2011, 2012 too

    The whole point is that 8-8 is areal struggle to get to when you have 2-14 level defenses
    Olines sucked too back then, relatively speaking.

    I didn't know that but I remember thinking a Romo punt is coming soon and the very next play it happened. Believe I even mentioned it at the time. Romo was so predictable. I knew he'd never win a shootout with Manning. It's sad that the Denver and Buffalo games are Romo's most exciting games.

    Probably my favorite loss ever. That rushing TD by Peyton still cracks me up.

    Most QBs wouldn't win a shootout against Manning. LOL

    Do you folks think before posting? What's the deal here? This game was "exciting" on a football level because of the shootout, NFL fans love it, it's one of the reasons for rule changes pushing for passing.

    Did you predict a Romo INT against the Lions in the 2014 playoffs? You know, against a better defense than the Broncos? Or was it too positive that he went down the field and got us a W?

    Talk about selective memory

    You do realize he had more game winning 4th drives than any QB in the league his last 4-5 years?
    Those don't count?

    Ah forget it.
    You're mind has been made-up long ago....and its you're right to you're opinion
