If that first safety hadn't happened, I think there'd have been a different game. But that got in Denver's head. The Hawks played Denver in the pre-season and beat them 40-10, but that was the pre-season. We had no reason to think we'd win by similar margins in the championship game.
It was great to see Percy back on the field after he'd been off. All our boys were healthy and able to play again. And our other QB got his chance to play at the end. As for the MAP choice, I understand why they chose Malcolm. He had an intestinal disease that dogged him from childhood. It almost ended his chances in the NFL and yet he was the one who in two games caught some pretty big interceptions.
