    I think so too. But athletes are generally not good at hanging it up.

    I think that it's worth noting that refs are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

    Refs can decide games by throwing or not throwing flags. The only thing I want as a fan is consistency. If...

    I honestly don't think it's about experience (ask Brady).

    I just think that Denver's D is (1) amazing and (2) peaked at the right time.

    Isn't that true of every D in the NFL?

    All we need are the two hardest things to find on the defensive side of the ball. One dominant corner and one player that dominates bringing pressure.

    I generally think that you need to be balanced on O and D to win. Denver was not, but they were just so ferocious on D that it didn't matter that their O was bad.

    This. Football careers are so short and serious injuries happen frequently. You pick the player you think is the best. Then you scheme to get them on the field. Just my $0.02

    Isn't this line great to look at. No need for a real QB through the draft.

    One of the huge benefits to having a franchise QB is that you don't need to use frequent high picks to reach for one....

    And with such little job security, I think coaches in most major sports are content not rolling the dice.

    This is how I feel too. But, I think we're in a great position here with the WRs no matter what happens.

    If we can only keep 3 of our WRs, I would hope to have Brown & Bryant & Coates. We try to...

    I think I would have went for it.

    At the time I thought that the choice was between
    (1) getting the TD first; holding the Broncos; and adding a FG with little time left
    OR
    (2) kicking the FG...

    I think that if your team routinely goes for 2 and gets good at it you'd have a huge competitive advantage over other teams.

    The Steelers converted 8 / 11 (72%). They attempted the most...

    Didn't NE have significant injuries to their OL? Seems like that could have played a role in Denver's success.

    This is what the Steelers will do. It's also the right call in my opinion. Very little down side, high upside.

    OT is 50 percent. Maybe less for the visiting team

    We converted 2 put conversions at something like 70%. Going for 2 would have been the right call.

    I think we'll see a lot of articles like this in the future. Last generation's players didn't have a way to tell their stories like current players do.

    Honestly, I think that the special teams hurt more than the turn over. The TO was just later in the game.

    Exactly how I feel. Thought they were going to get blown out. Nice to see the receiving corps step up. Coates looks like he might be able to contribute next year.

    This is the kind of thinking that coaches use. What decision minimizes my chance of being fired. Not what decision maximizes my chance of winning.

    You don't pay for ot in NE. You need to win.

    Used to have the ticket and watch all the games. Now I rarely watch live. When I did watch all the time, this is what I would do:

    I think that they should go for it every time because their conversion rate is > 50%. They will end up with more points if they do it this way. This is especially true because the Steelers have a...
