Patriots embarrass Broncos on way to AFC title game

Divisional Playoffs - Denver Broncos v New England Patriots Getty Images

Tim Tebow was a great story this year. The Patriots are trying to show they are a great team.

New England looked every bit the No. 1 seed in the AFC Saturday night during a 45-10 demolition over the Broncos. Denver looked every bit like a 9-9 team that gave up 40 points in three of their last five games.

This was a night for the Patriots to savor after losing their last two home playoff games.

“They put up with me. They deserve this,” Bill Belichick said after the game.

Here’s what we learned:

1. Tom Brady is going to be tough to beat if he continues to get protection like this. Brady threw for six touchdown passes and 363 yards on 34 attempts. His tackles — Matt Light and rookie Nate Solder — did a fantastic job on Denver’s pass rushers.

2. The Patriots defense is in better shape than it has been all year. Having safety Patrick Chung and linebacker Brandon Spikes makes a big difference. The entire defense had depth problems all season, but they are healthy at the right time.

They created 14 negative plays, which is an astounding number.

3. Tebowmania ended with a thud. This was a complete team loss by the Broncos, but Tebow didn’t play well. He finished 9-for-26 for 136 yards, five sacks, and a lost fumble. The Broncos only had six yards passing late in the third quarter. Tebow only rushed for 15 yards. Denver is not built to play from behind.

4. Bill Belichick is a great game-planner when he gets a second crack at a team. The Patriots defense was disciplined and took away Denver’s option plays very well.

5. Rob Gronkowski had more receptions and receiving yards than the entire Broncos team. Aaron Hernandez led the Patriots in rushing with 61 yards, lining up out of the backfield often. He also caught four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown.

Brady is the constant, but Gronk and Hernandez make this offense unique. That combination is the key to this latest incarnation of the Patriots. It makes their offense almost impossible to defend.

6. Tebow’s future will be debated all offseason. He has a lot to work on, but he’s earned the right to learn it while starting games for the Broncos next year. This loss won’t be good for ESPN’s programming, but it could be good for Denver long term. The Broncos still have a long way to go to be a real title contender and this loss will remind them of that.

The Patriots, on the other hand, are only one home win away from their fifth Super Bowl appearance in the Bill Belichick era. This isn’t your typical Patriots defense, but this isn’t your typical era of football.

It’s all about the quarterback, as Brady reminded us once again Saturday night.

    So we went from one of the greatest playoff games in NFL history, to one of the worst playoff games in NFL history.

    Interesting.

  2. trbowman says: Jan 14, 2012 11:50 PM

    Seriously, John Fox? Not even a garbage time appearance for Brady Quinn?

    Lame.

  3. binarybulge says: Jan 14, 2012 11:51 PM

    Can’t help but think Brady wanted us to know what he really thought about the Tebow phenomenon, using his play as the medium.

  4. patfromwayback says: Jan 14, 2012 11:51 PM

    An angry Tom Brady..is a good Tom Brady…
    GO PATS!!!!!!

  6. randomguy9999 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:51 PM

    no surprise…..

    the only surprise that could happen is if anyone is foolish enough to let Tebow start next year after the stats he put up this year

  7. skito13 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:52 PM

    When was the last playoff victory…tough guys???

  8. bennyd720 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:52 PM

    enjoy your QB controversy Denver…and you enjoy that tasty chowder Mr Tebow…

  9. lolb23 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:52 PM

    Brady/Belicick best QB/coach combo ever.

  10. dd2189 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:52 PM

    patriots in the huddle:

    “rock paper scissors , ok u get the td this time.”

  11. trbowman says: Jan 14, 2012 11:52 PM

    Quinn is going to tear up the NFL next year. You heard it here first.

  12. badtimeoutcaldwell says: Jan 14, 2012 11:53 PM

    Ridiculous performance by the Pats O-Line… they couldn’t get within 3 yards of Brady…

    Brady can potentially face Tebow, TJ Yates, and Alex Smith to get his 4th Superbowl! LOL

  13. bh83 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:53 PM

    Did you guys really think Tebow would out duel Brady? Tebow Mania eh?

  14. trbowman says: Jan 14, 2012 11:54 PM

    “This loss won’t be good for ESPN’s programming, but it could be good for Denver long term”

    No it isn’t.

    And ESPN will still talk about Tebow a lot on Sunday NFL Countdown tomorrow.

    If you think this loss stops that, folks, I think you’re in for a rude awakening.

  15. benh999 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:54 PM

    I wanna Tebow the T-Mobile girl.

  16. tedmurph says: Jan 14, 2012 11:54 PM

    What’s next for the haters, Pats haven’t won 2 playoff games in a row since 2007? TSuggs may not need god on his sideline, but if I were him I’d start praying now. In case they beat Houston; a big if.

  17. JakeDSnake says: Jan 14, 2012 11:55 PM

    Brady had more Yards Per Carry than Tebow and a high punting average than either punter.

  18. catskinnerd11r says: Jan 14, 2012 11:56 PM

    Thank god it is over

  19. stevenfbrackett says: Jan 14, 2012 11:56 PM

    Actually, Tebow going 9-for-26 is a 35% pass success rate, several points higher than his usual.

    Hopefully, he and his coaches will learn from this beatdown and get him someone who can coach him one-on-one throughout the off season on all the fundamentals of being a QB so he and the team can have something to build on when the new season starts. He has so, so much to learn.

  20. vincentbojackson says: Jan 14, 2012 11:57 PM

    Tebow loves god, but God loves the thought of a Superbowl with the two worst defenses in the league facing the two best QB’s

  21. anonymouslyanonymouscommentor says: Jan 14, 2012 11:57 PM

    I think the Patriots showed tonight why Tim Tebow is not an NFL quarterback. Tebow can’t put up the kind of points Rodgers, Brady, Manning, and Brees can, so unless you shut them down, you’re not going to win with Tebow as your quarterback. The Broncos had 2 shots at the Patriots this year, and they got embarrassed both times. Even the 49ers defense needed Alex Smith to bail them out today, something Tim Tebow might never be able to do.

  22. trbowman says: Jan 14, 2012 11:58 PM

    I don’t know about anyone else but I think Tom Brady was tired of losing playoff games! lol.

  23. thefiesty1 says: Jan 14, 2012 11:58 PM

    Tebow just showed how bad of a QB he really is. 9 completions? A miracle school kid could complete that many passes against the 31st defense. HA! Maybe he needs to pray some more.

  24. duanethomas says: Jan 14, 2012 11:58 PM

    Pittsburgh was over confident and arrogance and got their arses handed to them as they should have. New England was prepared and showed what a healthy NFL team with a solid game plan will do to Denver.

  25. bigtganks says: Jan 14, 2012 11:59 PM

    Poor skip bayless…

  26. pftisdabomb says: Jan 15, 2012 12:02 AM

    Brady, Gronk, and ‘the stache’ got it done in a big way tonite. The defense played better than they have all year. If they can continue to play like this they will be almost impossible to beat. All I can say is wow.

  27. kacapaco says: Jan 15, 2012 12:02 AM

    They say ‘QB is as good as his Offensive line’ for a reason. The Pats O line was near perfect but the Broncos O line, with its 14 negative plays, was as bad as it can get.

  28. goindy2006 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:02 AM

    Wow that was a through beating… like a drum!

  29. vincentbojackson says: Jan 15, 2012 12:02 AM

    Instead of basking in the glow of their win over the beat up Steelers all week, they should have been watching the game film of the same Steelers shutting down Gronk, Welker and Brady a few weeks back.

  30. tos420 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:02 AM

    Our God is an awesome God! Just kidding if you’re Tebow.

  31. spr217 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:02 AM

    Tebow, convinced the universe is random and unforgiving, is now an avowed atheist. He goes on to Tebow himself banging two black hookers in a cocaine fueled orgy. Video ends with Tim smoking a cigarette, white powder and stripper glitter all over his face, apathetically proclaiming to the camera, “God is dead.”

  32. pfbtyap says: Jan 15, 2012 12:04 AM

    thank you patriots for silencing te-blow-mania!

  34. xofootballer says: Jan 15, 2012 12:07 AM

    The Tebow story this year was fun.
    Sure, he’s not a franchise QB, but seeing him win on sheer will combined with talents he does have was fun to watch.
    He made fools of many ‘experts’ who just went overboard and over-reacted with criticism.
    He made a fools of the number one pass D in Pittsburgh by throwing over the top of their defense, something they didn’t think he could do.
    They now know better.
    It was fun to watch!
    But, he’s no Tom Brady.

  35. kyleortonsarm says: Jan 15, 2012 12:08 AM

    Well I guess this proves it. God doesn’t exist. Oh well. Off to the black abyss when we die.

  38. gimmeabruschi says: Jan 15, 2012 12:09 AM

    Not time to pile on Tebow and the Broncos. They exceeded expectations and had a good year to build on. Revenge for ’06 was pretty sweet though.

  39. deepbacksidedig says: Jan 15, 2012 12:09 AM

    BB reaffirms his status today. Team peaked at the right time, and were ready, to a man, hitting everything in sight.

    Tebow does not deserve the hit he is going to take. It was a team effort. Every man on that field got beat, repeatedly.
    Denver drops, repeatedly. Denver D just got whacked.

    Pats D has not played like that since 2004. Certainly not this year. They were healthy, dressed everyone in practice this week.
    No answers for Gronk and Hernandez yet. many other weapons, good enough running game, many varied looks. They will be tough to beat.

  40. asublimeday says: Jan 15, 2012 12:10 AM

    “tebows loss won’t be good for espn’s programming”

    As though tebow isn’t the lifeblood of PFT as well.

  41. gosuhgo says: Jan 15, 2012 12:10 AM

    So Tebow takes his crappy team to the playoffs, gets them a win there, and now he doesn’t deserve to start next year because of a bad loss? God forbid a first year starter lose to the top seed, led by one of the all time greats. Come on.

  42. broncfolife says: Jan 15, 2012 12:10 AM

    I stand corrected. Broncos did give another game away to the patriots.
    The writter also needs correcting….
    Tebows didnt play bad. His entire offense let him down. This loss by far was not his fault. Receivers dropped, line was nonexistent, and play calls were horrible. Good job Pats. Look out next year.

    Vons a monster, a terrorizor, a straight bad a**.
    five eight’ s no joke…
    Beware all….

    “Where’s your Messiah now, Tebow?”

  47. huejackson says: Jan 15, 2012 12:12 AM

    I did not even watch this game cause I knew it would be a blow out, I thought it would of been 50-3.
    Broncos are horrible, everyone knows the real AFC west Champs are the Raiders….
    For the Pats fans dont get to excited after all this was the Broncos and you will lose next week against the Ravens…
    Its going to be Ravens VS 49ers in the Superbowl

  48. oregonbear says: Jan 15, 2012 12:13 AM

    Broncos got T-Boned.

  49. DenverBroncosFan_NoMatterWhat says: Jan 15, 2012 12:13 AM

    Like I said over at MileHighReport.com, this season wasn’t supposed to end this way…this team wasn’t supposed to even be in the playoffs, let alone in the Divisional round of the Playoffs.
    I’m very proud of my team. They went from 4-12 last season, bottom of a sorry division, and the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, to 1-4 to start this season, well on their way to another high draft pick and house-cleaning.
    The moment Tebow stepped in as starter, the entire team took on a whole new feel, new energy. I know that Tim Tebow was the national darling, or pariah, depending on your views of him, but the entire Broncos team played with heart, emotion, and passion that wasn’t evident ever since Jay Cutler supplanted Jake Plummer in 2007.
    Yeah, my team got it’s hat handed to them by Tom Brady and the Patriots. All the critics and “haters” are going to have a field day with how the game went. They deserve to, if you ask me, and I’m going to watch and read all of it because I’m a Broncos fan through and through. But it hard to deny that this season was a success after you weigh all the bad this team has dealt with over the last 3+ years.
    Let’s see what a full offseason of practices and cohesion does for this team. I’m betting that this won’t be the last time the Broncos are in the playoffs, and that there is no place to go but up with this team.
    Thank you, Denver Broncos, for a wonderful and exciting season. Learn from this loss, and come back stronger than ever next season.
    GO BRONCOS!!!

  50. kissbillsrings says: Jan 15, 2012 12:14 AM

    Brady kicked butt…I love it…whoever is editing these posts can shove it…..& we got Josh to thank for this win cause without him the Patriots didn’t stand a chance!!!

    better get that coaching loophole closed….what a joke!!!!

    Tebow’s a great kid with a huge heart, period.

  55. masterflyguy says: Jan 15, 2012 12:18 AM

    “Tebowing” reminds me of the crowd aimlessly following Forest Gump during that long run… Don’t be that person

  56. coolgato13 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:20 AM

    This is symptomatic of what is wrong with America.
    The Patriots throttle Denver 45-10….
    Tom Brady throws a record-setting 6 TD passes…
    and the first two words of this article are….Tim Tebow.

  57. earthtopft says: Jan 15, 2012 12:20 AM

    Well, so much for Denver’s defense or offensive line winning games for them.

    It was Tebow and DeMaryius Thomas out there, alone, Everything else on the Denver side was GARBAGE. Nate Solder OWNED that overrated peice of crap Von Miller.

  58. nomoreseasontix says: Jan 15, 2012 12:22 AM

    You know… I suppose Tom Brady might just be a little more religious than Tim Tebow.

    It couldn’t be anything else. Could it?

  59. thenmoveback says: Jan 15, 2012 12:23 AM

    Praise him

  60. Deb says: Jan 15, 2012 12:23 AM

    I like Tebow personally and admired the game plan they used to beat my Steelers. But the hype this week has been crazy. Polls say 43 percent of people believe God wants the Broncos to win. Seriously? Every team has devoutly religious players. Friends who’ve never watched a down of Denver football are celebrating “their team’s” victory over a team I’ve loved, win or lose, for 34 years. They can’t even name a single player on the Broncos other than Tebow. If he left tomorrow, they wouldn’t care if the Broncos fell off the planet.

    Congrats to the real Denver fans on winning the division. But the rest of these nuts need to get a life. And since I’m in Fla. and surrounded by them … thank you, Mr. Brady.

  61. johntonioholmes says: Jan 15, 2012 12:24 AM

    I wish I could find the post last week when I predicted that the Pats would win by 30 or more. I really did–honest!

    I have nothing against Denver (I’m actually a long-time Pats hater) but last week was a fluke and they had no business being in the playoffs.

    Good game by the Pats, and that pains me to say that. Hopefully they beat Baltimore next week…or lose to the Texans (like that will happen)

  62. reedhof20 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:24 AM

    The Ravens are coming to town and will stomp a mudhole in that D…Enjoy it while you can. That is of course, IF we get past a very tough and scrappy Texans team – much respect in that direction…

  63. j0esixpack says: Jan 15, 2012 12:24 AM

    He got the 3, 1 & 6 again…. Just in a different order.

    In short, he got Teb-owned

  64. tacoslinger619 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:26 AM

    Tebow should find out what church Tom goes to……Maybe baby Jesus is really right handed and hasn’t figured it out yet, because throwin with his left is definitely not working?

  65. mayfieldroadboy says: Jan 15, 2012 12:27 AM

    @spr217
    Not that I’m superstitious, but after reading your comments about God, I certainly don’t want to be standing near you during the next thunder storm.

    I’m sure people like you will be debating the existence of God long after you’re gone; and then you will know with certainty that God is not dead.

  66. enriqueic says: Jan 15, 2012 12:28 AM

    Amazing how many people hate Tebow. The guy had a season that far outweighed expectations. Guys, he took a 4-12 team into a team that not only made it past the wildcard, but did so against the #1 season. Congratulations to the pats.

  67. pfii63 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:29 AM

    A determined and angry Tom Brady…

    An indefensible Rob Gronkowski…

    A tremendous performance by the Patriots offensive line…

    A Patriots defense that didn’t look like the 31st rated defense in the NFL…

    Tebow having no answers…

    The best hit of the Broncos night came on a cheap shot by Von Miller…

    Yep, pretty sure that tells us all we need to know about the game tonight.

    Let the Pats’ haters keep on hating. It won’t stop a team on a mission.

  70. hushbrother says: Jan 15, 2012 12:32 AM

    Of course. Tebow’s success this year is nothing to build on. He couldn’t possibly improve. The Broncos have a potential future Hall of Fame quarterback on their roster languishing on the bench so Tebow can play.

    Obviously, they should dump him now.

    That is a true football fan’s worst nightmare. As much as I hate the Ravens I’d rather see a team that plays defense win it. The NFL is going the way of the NBA where the last two minutes of the game are all that will be worth watching.

    The last time Belichick n McDaniels were together on the same team we had SPYGATE… jus saying. LOL

  77. stakex says: Jan 15, 2012 12:44 AM

    Tim Teblow is simply not a good NFL quarterback. How many times tonight did he had 2-3 open recievers and simply refused to throw the ball? Far too many to be a starting quarterback. Sure he can run the ball, but as the Patriots showed… if you can’t throw, your can’t win.

    He simply got lucky on a few games this year, and the rest of the Broncos played really well. However Teblow is a so/so quarterback at best, and the most over rated QB ever at worst. I’m glad he finally got what was coming to him, and I don’t expect to see TebowMania again…. ever.

  78. raiderspride says: Jan 15, 2012 12:45 AM

    Tom Brady is the Anti-Christ.

  79. dirtdawg55 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:46 AM

    Since many like to play the “look what religious inspiration we found from Teblow” game, try this one on for size. Lamentations 3:63 (Brady threw for366 yards), “Look at them! Sitting or standing, they mock me in their songs”.

    Pretty appropriate given the beat down the Pats laid on them. Soapy together now … “Na, na, na, na. Na, na, na, na. Hey, hey, hey, goooood byyyyee.”

    And what was with Telow getting all gassed up over a first down late in the game in the Pats end with the game at 42 to 7? Seriously?

  80. proudliberal85392 says: Jan 15, 2012 12:47 AM

    I think we saw the true Tebow tonight. Unfortunately for him, the Broncos did see the true Brady.

    Brady still wears a dress…

    And you still aint man enough to wear his dress.

    With that said, I’m honestly impressed with what the Broncos have accomplished this year. Certainly more than I believe anyone would have expected. Who knows maybe Tebow can be the next Doug Flutie.

    As for the pats 31st ranked defense… sometimes the numbers just don’t tell the whole story. I’ll be more impressed if they can accomplish the same thing in the AFC championship though.

  84. lanman11 says: Jan 15, 2012 1:02 AM

  86. chaothao says: Jan 15, 2012 1:07 AM

    For all the goof balls who said this lost shouldn’t be blame on Tebow alone should go recheck themselves. When the Broncos were winning it was Tebow this Tebow that, very little credit was given to that good defensive unit that saved his bad performances all year. Now they lose and the whole team has to take the blame? Sure the def gave up 40+ points but Tebow should take more blame since he was gaven more than his share when they were winning.

    Hey haters….I thought we’d be one and done. Lol. 67-19 since “spygate” aka an overblown story from the ESPN tabloid. 1 win from our 2nd Super Bowl in 5 years. Keepin hatin losers! Lol

  88. savagenation2011 says: Jan 15, 2012 1:20 AM

    none you know squat about football.
    Tebow doesnt play defense. Tebow doesnt play offensive line where he had 2 seconds to to throw while Brady had all day. He has no weapons except DT.

    Brady on the Broncos does NOTHING and gets killed

    I was a wee worried about the Pats defence, but they t-boned the broncs. Basted and tenderized…

    Brady wasn’t too bad either….the whole friggin team was smokin.

  93. iknowzeroaboutsports says: Jan 15, 2012 1:50 AM

    The problem isn’t that Tebow had a bad game, it’s that he looked like a college QB running a college offense up against a pro team.

  94. weepingjebus says: Jan 15, 2012 1:51 AM

    Please stop with the “Patriots haven’t beaten a winning team” saw. Many teams the Patriots beat had winning records at the time, and ended up with losing records because they lost to the Patriots. For example, the Patriots swept the Jets and the Jets ended 8-8. Would it have been better if the Pats lost one of those games, so they could say they beat a 9-7 team? Give me a break.

  95. laserw says: Jan 15, 2012 1:55 AM

    We have also learned that the New England Patriots can’t beat a team one on one without resorting to hiring a former competitor’s coach and/or taping the practices of the competitor. Lost in all of this hoopla for the New England Cheater is that Brady lost four playoff games in a row before getting an easy game against the Broncos. He shall not be afforded kid gloves when it comes to how the Ravens will ensure his jersey gets dirty and his wimpy, whiney self meets the grass.

    This week Tebow came to earth.

    Next week Tomasina Brady gets planted in it.

    Tebow loves god, but God loves the thought of a Superbowl with the two worst defenses in the league facing the two best QB’s
    ———————————————————-

    Correction: The two STATISTICALLY worse defenses in the league. There is a big difference. Mike Tomlin put it best earlier this year when they faced the Patriots and was asked about going up against the worst defeinse in the league, he said “anybody who things the Patriots are the worst defense int he league is crazy. Its because they can put up 35 points in a quarter and the other team is throwing on every down in garbage time.

    Both Green Bay and the Pats have holes on defense, but they are not nearly as bad as their stats. It would be an epic Super Bowl to watch if both teams make it.

    I admit it was especially funny reading that little rant about it above from a Packers fan whose team lost to the 7-9 Chiefs. :D

    Man, Brady DOES look pissed / focused. I’m sure Chad noticed that from the sideline. That was awesome.

    Let’s remember it’s the Broncos and Tebow, though, so not exactly the same competition as the teams that are left.

  104. burntorangehorn says: Jan 15, 2012 3:30 AM

    This game doesn’t indicate anything new as far as Tebow. Anyone with a brain and an ablity to see past the hype already knew Tebow’s mediocre at best. This just reaffirmed it. He didn’t deserve credit for supposedly willing his team to wins last week or falling ass-backwards into the playoffs, and he doesn’t deserve criticism for falling short of expectations today, because he basically played the same crappy football he always does.

  105. craigmaitland says: Jan 15, 2012 3:46 AM

    If I hear one more time how “classy” the Patriots and Robert Kraft are I am going to vomit. SpyGate, Steroids, Bellicheck the home wrecker, Gronk and his pornstars and obvious steroid usage, the tuck rule, running the score up, taunting, it’s too much.

    First, I never try to make excuses for my Broncos when they lose, so if I say anything after this, its not meant to be an excuse for Denver losing. The simple truth is, the Pats whipped their a$$ thouroughly! I expected a NE win, although I expected a better game. But one thing that I will say is, I still beleive in Tebow, but he needs better receivers. Thomas is only avaerage, and after him there is NOONE else! Denvers secondary has been a problem all year when the D line has failed to create pressure, and Tom Brady proved why he is still the best in the NFL!! I am not even a little suprised that the pats won, I picked them 2 months ago to go to the super bowl, but this loss was not ALL because of Tebow’s failures, the O line and D line was horrible last night! Congrats to a NE team that whipped my Broncos in every phase of the game, without a doubt the Patriots are the better team, and to hell with the crybabies who complain about “spygate” and all that other crap! See ya in the SB Patriots…but Rodgers will be tough to beat!

  109. denverdude7 says: Jan 15, 2012 7:15 AM

    First, congratulations to the New England Patriots football team on a well played and greatly deserved victory.

    Second, Tim Tebow did look horrible. He showed the results of starting off as the 3rd string QB and getting no practice time because of the lockout as well. Then, before he even started his first game, his top receiver is traded away for a 5th round draft choice. The fact remains that he took over a team headed for a top 5 draft pick and guided them to a playoff victory.

    Thank You Tim Tebow. Work hard, stay strong, and come back better next year.

  110. bloodybean74 says: Jan 15, 2012 7:20 AM

    People really need to stop sayin the pats had to hire a coach from the other team to win. They got Mcdaniels before they knew they would play the broncos. quit cryin and makin excuses and hope your teams make it next year. by the way see you next week lol.

  111. iluvwikileaks says: Jan 15, 2012 7:20 AM

    I wanted the Pats to lose. But, I did start to enjoy the whipping the Broncos took. And, the reality check for Tebow and his whacky followers. One win against a broken down team with half their best players limping around at 50% didn’t really mean a thing afterall, huh?

    I hope the Lord is with Tebow now….in his hour of need:)

  112. sweetzinger says: Jan 15, 2012 7:20 AM

    Whoopeee. You laid down a beating on the garbage Broncos with a moron qb (that’s moron, not mormon). Typical Patriots. 13-3, going to the AFC Championship game and still haven’t beaten a team with a winning record. Pad the ultimate system qb’s stats and make him look like a hero. Every one mocks the NFC West, as if the AFC East is anything spectacular. They should call it the Big East. Patriots never win, the other team always finds a way to lose.

  113. 8man says: Jan 15, 2012 7:37 AM

    I can’t think of anything to say that the Patriots didn’t already say with their performance.

    But this game wasn’t really a big game. The next two are. They have trophies, hats and t-shirts attached to them. Lets see how they go.

    Go Patriots!

  114. kingpel says: Jan 15, 2012 7:39 AM

    You cant compare Tebow to Brady, Rogers and Brees. He is a running QB. That means his success should be measured against football greats like Mike Vick, Tavaris Jackson, and Vince Young. All fundamentally and mechanically sound legends of the game.

  115. footballfundamentals says: Jan 15, 2012 7:40 AM

    Hmmm…

    Didn’t the Patriots have the 31st ranked defense?

    The Patriots almost played like they new what offense and DEFENSE plays were going to be called by the Broncos. I wonder how that can happen?

    Oh maybe, when you hire the person who drafted the Broncos QB and was the ex coach of team THE WEEK BEFORE YOU PLAY THEM.

    Didn’t Jon Gruden and his players know what the Raiders were calling?

    I know the sytems are different but there must be some similarities and tendencies.

    If the Patriots can lay 40+ on the Ravens next week then I wil believe it. Until then….

  116. dolphins4 says: Jan 15, 2012 7:44 AM

    Why does everyone hate Tebow so much he’s just a young QB that has only played in 14 games?I ‘ve seen alot of very successful QBs that have played far worse than he has their first couple of years playing in the NFL.

  117. jpb12 says: Jan 15, 2012 7:50 AM

    ” Patriots haven’t beaten a team with a winning record “.

    True, but moronic. You can only play the teams on your schedule as issued by the NFL. The Patriots can’t call the 49ers and plan their own game.

    “Brady is a system QB ”

    What system ? winning ? Who else is in this system? Rogers? Brees? Why aren’t all teams using this “system “? It would appear to be effective.

    Do you really believe that if Tom Brady went to any other team with any other offense that he would not be a top tier NFL QB?

    .

  119. lowleadman says: Jan 15, 2012 8:26 AM

    Denver fans, nothing to be ashamed about. You went further than anyone could have imagined 8 weeks ago. You played with your heads up. You also knew in the back of your minds that this little run could not go on forever. Football games, especially in the playoffs, are won and lost in the trenches, and the Pats owned the line of scrimmage, and when Brady is focused like a laser, there are simply too many weapons in the Pats offense to cover them all. The Pats were simply the better team who had the better execution.

    Rodgers may be the regular season mvp, but Tommy boy will be the playoff mvp.

    I was right with the 49er and Pats picks, so let’s continue that trend and watch the Texans and Giants pull the upsets today.

    As for Tebow, my suggestion is that Elway work with Timmy during the offseason on how to be a better pocket qb, learn to read his 2nd and 3rd options, and he will be a better qb for it.

Tebow is young and has time to grow, but my Pats stood up to the hater fans and media in a big way. The road remains tough for us, but I’ll take my chances with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady any day….along with 52 other scrappy players. Let’s go

    All the hype for Mr. Tebow has been way overblown and without merit. He lacks the tools to be an effective NFL QB. Hopefully now we can move past all the ecumenical overtones regarding this guy and get back to evaluating him as a QB.

    i happen to agree with the poster who called the pats org classless. when other teams run up the score, they are called out for it. the pats and brady, glorified for it. there was no reason for the starters to play after the 1st quarter much less in the 2nd half. i normally don’t want anyone hurt but it would have been poetic justice if one of the playmaker rolled an ankle and not be available next week, when you guys play a team that really belongs in the playoffs

    If you “experts,” the ones blaming Tebow, would compare the supporting cast Brady has compared to the Mutt’s, that Tebow has, maybe you would see a primary reason the Pats destroyed the Broncos. Tebow, is basically a rookie, with NO experience, a shortened training camp, etc. Elway constantly carping at him and the moronic coach Fox and his slow reaction to a play book that uses tebow’s strengths.

  144. gonowestmo says: Jan 15, 2012 11:40 AM

    I am neither a fan of, nor am I hater of Tim Tebow,
    and I will contend that this was essentially a rookie season for him, given all his and the Broncos circumstances. having said that, he was still the worst rookie quarterback I have ever seen.
    Now, as a running back that sometimes makes a decent throw, he’s fairly decent.

    Well, so much for Denver’s defense or offensive line winning games for them.

    It was Tebow and DeMaryius Thomas out there, alone, Everything else on the Denver side was GARBAGE. Nate Solder OWNED that overrated peice of crap Von Miller.

    =================================
    Dude! This is the type of comment that makes people hate Patritos fans. Yes we killed them..and yes….Solder has been playing great….but make no mistake; Bill would love to have a guy like Von Miller on the Patriot’s D

    If I hear one more time how “classy” the Patriots and Robert Kraft are I am going to vomit. SpyGate, Steroids, Bellicheck the home wrecker, Gronk and his pornstars and obvious steroid usage, the tuck rule, running the score up, taunting, it’s too much.

    If they win they win.. But please no more pumping their tires as a classy organization. They are scum.

    Yeah real classless. NFL players get caught when they use steroids…they are tested a lot. Getting the tuck rule called on them makes them classless??? Thanks to Kraft we had football this year. sorry your team is at home golfing now…go watch soccer as that seams like a sport right up your alley!!!

    Ok, lets see….
    1.Tuck rule – not the Patriots who made that call, it was the refs, so scratch that from the list. 2. Gronk and steriods – you have some inside information here, because I haven’t heard a thing about that. 3. Running the score up? Really? The NFL doesn’t have a mercy rule. And it seems to me the Pats only scored 1 td after the half and were running the ball quite a bit…they could have hung 60 on the Broncos. 4. Steroids – again, what are you referring to? I haven’t seen any Pats players get suspended for that. 5. Taunting yeah, no other team in the league taunts or celebrates anything…..if your fav team doesn’t taunt, they must suck and have no reason to taunt.

    Honestly, you need to stop watching NFL football if all these things are going to bother you.

    i happen to agree with the poster who called the pats org classless. when other teams run up the score, they are called out for it. the pats and brady, glorified for it. there was no reason for the starters to play after the 1st quarter much less in the 2nd half. i normally don’t want anyone hurt but it would have been poetic justice if one of the playmaker rolled an ankle and not be available next week, when you guys play a team that really belongs in the playoffs”

    Yeah good call, the Pats should have sat their starters after the 1st quarter. In a divisional playoff game, when they haven’t won a playoff game in 4 years. Good idea, you should be a coach.

    And I don’t know where you were during the 2007 season, but the Pats were killed by a lot of media outlets for running up the score.
    If Denver didn’t like the Pats scoring touchdowns, they should have stopped them.

    If you want to see sensitivity towards the losing team, go watch 5-year-olds play t-ball, they have mercy-rules.

    And as far as the comment: “i normally don’t want anyone hurt” is concerned, Get off your pedestal. You just openly wished for someone to get hurt stemming from obvious sour grapes over a loss. Get a life.

    Only one glaring error in this article. Tebow mania is far from dead!

    I hope the Lord is with Tebow now….in his hour of need:)

    I realize you said this with sarcasm :). However, it is a very kind and appropriate prayer. And, you can Have Faith that God is with Tebow now as he has always been.

    That being said, GO NINERS!!!!!!

    Other than nutjobs and a small number of Broncos fans looking for a savior, nobody gives a flying you-know-what about Tebow. He gave it his best shot and came up way short. Pittsburgh would have at least made it a game, but they took Denver and its high altitude for granted. Congratulations to the New England Patriots on a huge victory, and to the Denver Broncos for making it past Pittsburgh.

    Tebow was only a good story because the press made him a good story. There is literally nothing about the guy that makes him a good story in any way, shape or form.

    He’s a QB, big friggin deal. If you look closely, a really, really bad one at that. The Broncos’ kicker and defense won most of those games, Tebow didn’t.

    Patriots were crazy to leave Brady in so long in a blowout win!

  154. patsfiend says: Jan 15, 2012 2:27 PM

    Shannon Sharpe at halftime, “Garble…. mumble… Broncos!… (indecipherable) … Tebow …. I’m an idiot!”

    @6ball

    I don’t know how you can say my statement is true, but then say it’s a moronic statement. Doesn’t matter if they can only play who’s on their schedule. It was a dog schedule, regardless.

    System qb: when you have PManning, Brees and Rogers, you build the system around them-and any system, because they will be successful. Brady-would be successful in only that system because he’s not near as talented or skilled. Look at the Superbowl against the Giants. He had a chance for immortality and got beat by an ordinary Giants team. A Giants team, until this year, has made the playoffs once and still haven’t won a playoff game. A Giants team that shut down the system. Let Welker catch it, but don’t let him run around like a rodent after that. Take away the outside on Moss and force him in, he will disappear.

    Brady successful on another team? No, I don’t think he would be. Matt Cassel should be proof enough.

    There’s 10 qb’s in the league that would have won those cheesey-last second field goal-Superbowls. Drew Bledsoe was always more talented. He just didn’t have a coaching staff with a camera.

    Do you honestly think that it’s a coincidence, that until yesterday against the weak Broncos, they haven’t won a playoff game since Spygate?

    Look at the playoff game against the Jets last year. The Jets, a average team at best, shut down the system and won.

    This statement alone shows you have no clue what you’re talking about.

    It’s there 3rd playoff win since “Spygate”.

    Brady could’ve had 7, maybe 8 TD’s in the game. unbelievable….
