  • Well… that didn’t end the way we wanted it to. We knew it would be a tough game, but we had hoped that our Patriots would win against the Broncos. Even our Resident Jet’s Fan thought Brady would beat out Peyton Manning,

    But alas, we will not be competing for our fourth Super Bowl ring this year. Instead, it will be the Seahawks and Broncos.

    As the Boston Globe’s Shalise Manza Young points out, the Patriots just couldn’t overcome the Broncos last night. From a less than energetic offense, old injuries, and the controversial Wes Welker pick play against Aqib Talib, the Patriot’s couldn’t adjust to what the Broncos threw at them.

    From Boston.com’s Ben Volin:

    Belichick’s defense hardly laid a finger on Manning — not only zero sacks, but also zero quarterback hits on 43 pass attempts. Manning appropriately carved up the Patriots’ defense for 400 passing yards, two touchdowns, and an almost 75 percent completion rate, and Belichick’s defense couldn’t figure out any way to stop him.

    The Broncos gained 507 total yards — the most allowed by the Patriots all season — made seven of 13 third-down conversions, and held onto the ball for 35:10. After punting on their first possession, the Broncos scored two touchdowns and kicked four field goals on their next six.

    Well, we’ve always got our Bruins!

    What are your thoughts on the game? Did you think we would win, or were we lucky to even get to the playoffs? Will you even watch the Super Bowl?
