Re: It needs to be discussed. Manning and his shortcomings
Manning had a so so game due to the turnovers BUT the biggest reason Denver lost that game is because their secondary played like ass.
Champ Baily got roasted all game and the TD that forced OT was some of worst safety play I have ever seen in the pros.
On top of that John Fox totally turtled multiple times. Running the ball on 3rd down instead of having Manning pass to end the game late in the 4th was nuts considering how poorly their secondary had been playing. Then to just knee it and play for OT when you have 2 timeouts and 31 seconds left with one of the best QBs and best kickers in the league was was a pansy move. They needed to move the ball just 40 yards for a 50 yard FG attempt. Lame lame lame.
