Notice after the Defense that won Brady those SB rings began to retire/move on, his SB trips/wins took a nose dive?
Championships are won on Defense.
Manning has never had a decent Defense until this year and for whatever reason they did not show up tonight.
How anyone can pin this loss on Manning is beyond me. It was a team loss and there were mistakes on both sides of the ball, but the majority of the problem was on the Defense.
Manning did his job by putting 3 scores on the board.
Holiday did his job by putting up 2.
The Defense leaked like a sieve all night.
I don't know if it's the curse of the bye week and they simply lost their momentum or whether they bought into all the ridiculous hype that had the game won before it was played or what, but that D was horrible tonight. "
Of course I am sure this poster would agree that the Broncos defense is also to blame for that pick six, the quarterback fumble that the Ravens turned into a Ray Rice touchdown on short field, and that WTF? interception that the peerless Manning threw across his body in double overtime that lead to the game winning field goal for the other team.
