Breaking down the Denver win with Tony Dungy

Peyton Manning,  J.D. Walton AP

After Sunday night’s season-opening win by the Broncos over the Steelers, Tony Dungy and yours truly stuck around the set of Football Night in America to take a quick look back at the game, and a quick look ahead for the Broncos and Steelers in Week Two.

So what did Coach Dungy think of his former quarterback’s performance against Dungy’s former team?

There’s only one way to find out.  (Well, technically there are multiple ways but the easiest way is to click the button below.)

    Dear Elway,

    Thank you for allowing us fans to be excited about our team going forward. You didn’t let the tebowmania control the way you operate the organization. Thank you for taking a risk on a sure thing because we all know you know what it takes to win a SB

    Yours truly,

    Broncos fans

    The deciding factor in the game was V. Miller sacking Ben and then dropping to one knee, Tebowing.

    If the Steeler defense gives up 20 points without scoring a defensive TD it is an automatic, sure fire, slam dunk, written in stone, take it to the bank and smoke it, LOSS for the Steelers.

    Roethlisberger’s pick six was just icing on the cake although, bless his heart, he tried to throw many more interceptions but the Broncos kept dropping them.

    Roethlisberger is the type of elite quarterback that specializes in 13-9 wins against crap teams. He’s never going to win any shoot outs.

    So he’s got the fourth best winning percentage (all-time) amoung QB’s by playing crap teams? Doesn’t say much for the talent in the AFC north or for the rest of the NFL for that matter.

    The Steelers lost to a good defense and a future HOF QB who probably will be considered the best of all time. Manning’s play calling speaks for itself.

    Tapenade is the key to new youth.

    Untill the Steelers Defense stops sitting back 20 yards off the ball in a zone their going to have issues. Today’s NFL QBs eat that up..if they playd press man like they did against the Patriots last season games like this wouldn’t happen, unfortunately coach Lebeau has lost his ability to make adjustments..Steelers D use to be lights out in the 3rd and 4th quarters..now teams just Dink and dunk down field the whole game..that with the lack of pressure Up front & having MLBs who don’t cover the Middle of the field because they have to rush is a recipe for disaster.

    I mean like the Super Bowl where Roethlisberger crapped the bed against Green Bay. Did you forget about that? The interceptions? The pick 6?

    I love how Roethlisberger apologists have to go back to the 2005 playoffs against Denver or some obscure game from 5 years ago to give an example of Roethlisberger playing well in a big game.
