Manning choking in the playoffs? Inconceivable.

Don't make it, I want this to become the longest... darn.

That is the thing, even the year the Colts won the Super Bowl he didn't actually play that well in the playoffs.

Tucker has been money this year. Would love for him to be our next Stover. I miss Matt Stover.

Randy Moss, heating up.

Wow, hats off to Baltimore on that one. Thought Denver had this one going into the game but they hung in there and fought hard.

Wow, what a game by the Broncos and Ravens. At 8 degrees, it must have been miserable, but in the end Peyton made one of his patented "just squeeze it in there" passes that happened to be caught by a guy wearing purple in double overtime. You can't make a mistake like that in the playoffs if you want to win.

Still, it was an awesome game to watch and must have been a blast to be at except for the ridiculous weather!

It doesn't hurt that the refs appear to be bought and paid for.

Wooooooooooooooooooooow what a game that was. The Broncos threw that game away like I have never seen a team throw a playoff game away. Worst safety play ever. All you have to do is not let the guy get behind you, that was pathetic.

For the first 4 quarters, the refs looked like they were being paid for the Broncos more than the Ravens.

Where's the D, San Fran?

This. This was in no way a game a Denver fan can play the blame-the-ref card over.

I don't know, they weren't calling PI in the first 4 quarters and all of a sudden, there's one in OT that really wasn't. Also, I think the Tuck rule only applies when Brady is the QB.

Denver played way too conservative though regulation.

Football gods. Payback for Kyle Williams.

*EDIT*
San Francisco defense special teams just came up huge.

I was half watching just now, lol.

Crabtree just got his spike stuffed by the camera crews. That's pretty funny.

I just assumed you had been drinking.

I have.

At least he didn't spike it into a camera guy. Seen that happen before.

And Crabtree gives the finger to league officials.

Also I thought that was about to be a replay of the T.O. sandwich catch.

He was fined for throwing the football into the crowd, so he was miming doing it again.

Rodgers playing about as well as Manning so far.

Ok now you can talk about our defense, Kush.

Woo! Suck it Rodgers. This game combines my hate for the Packers as a lifelong Bears fan and my new home team SF.

That was a nice over the shoulder catch by a DB.
Go Niners and screw you Green Bay.

Oh come on refs...

Amazing how good Crabtree has become with other receiving threats on the team and Kaepernick playing QB.

Aldon Smith!

And what a lucky bounce, sheesh.

The Packers shouldn't have brought the greased balls tonight.

I'm not sure about that one. A questionable PI call in the first quarter kept their drive alive, along with a missed PI against the ravens in the same quarter. Then, the horrendous PI against Bailey in the third... And the tuck rule thing in the third/fourth?

In fairness, manning forcing that final interception is what really killed it, but I don't think you can deny that the refs definitely had a favorable slant toward the Ravens.

Defensive battle!
