Am I missing something? Troy Aikman has now twice suggested that Denver needs multiple 2-pt conversions to catch up. They needed that last one that they just pulled off, but now they're down by 28. So that's four touchdowns and four extra points, to make up a 28 point deficit. Highly unlikely they'll do that, but I don't see why he thinks they need to do more 2-pt conversions.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I'm still happily stunned by all this. I thought it was going to be a close game, but... I never expected this meltdown. I felt sorry for Peyton. I like him, but it was business tonight.

I saw at least five fireworks displays from my house tonight. The last time a Seattle men's professional team won a championship was in 1979, before I was born. This is huge. Oh yes, and my brother was at the game!

Finally, as to the question about cornbread, I use Jiffy.

Also, Russell Wilson becomes the first black quarterback to win a Super Bowl since Doug Williams did so 25 years ago, doesn't he?

I'm not sure about that. But he is the third youngest QB to win.

No excuses for this game, but Manning himself wasn't the problem. They got beat in all phases of the game. Manning did everything he could, they just got beat.

If it had been a close game lost only by mistakes on Peyton's part, then yeah. But Denver lost this one collectively, in EVERY phase of the game.

That was simply the most boring Super Bowl I've watched since... pick one of the three Troy Aikman/Dallas Cowboys Super Bowls. Even the ads sucked... except for the one featuring Scarlett Johansson. Um, what was she selling? I forgot already...

My congratulations to Pete Carroll, the Seahawks and the city of Seattle. It's been a long time coming. Cheers!

No one is saying he was the sole reason Denver lost but trying to absolve him of any blame isn't going to work either.

I mean either he is the "super" quarterback that many were saying he was (after his great regular season) and choked in the SB, or he is simply another very good quarterback who when properly defensed, coughs up the ball and can be rendered ineffective like many others before him. Two picks and lost a fumble don't lie.

The Broncos performance was an embarrassment to the sport of football.

Jesus, that was a boring, anti-climactic game. Makes me long for baseball season that much more.

One pick on a tipped pass.

The other pick on a hit as he threw.

The fumble on another hit as he thew (you can even see his arm moving forward without the ball).

Problem wasn't Manning, it was the offensive line. Unless you think the safety to start the game was his fault, too; if you do, then we're not even having a conversation.

I'm not sure what you're saying, the first interception was clearly Manning's fault, no?
Anyway, other than that, yeah, he didn't make many terrible mistakes, however he also didn't do anything "special", which you would expect from "the greatest QB ever" as some pundits claimed he is before the game.
