The amusing thing about yesterday’s AFC divisional playoff game is that if Tim Tebow had been playing quarterback for the Denver Broncos instead of Peyton Manning, the Broncos probably would have won that game. Manning’s two interceptions, the first returned for a touchdown, absolutely killed the Broncos. There is no way that a team that benefits from not one, but two, special teams touchdowns should lose a game at home.
And Champ Bailey’s career as a starting cornerback appears to be all but over in light of his extreme toasting by Torrey Smith. It’s time to move to the nickle, Champ. Or safety. The fifth gear, it is gone. My condolences.
It is looking like we’ll see a Patriots-49ers Super Bowl, with one last ring for Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. But this is the NFL, and we all know that anything can happen on any given Sunday.
This should also settle the 2012 MVP question conclusively in the favor of AD.
