Denver Man. Even though I only met you once, I worry about you. Go get those ribs checked. Now that I got that out of the way, some observations about yesterdays game. If you are up by 7 points with less then two minutes left in a game, how can you let a wide reciever get closer to the end zone then any defender? Also, Denver played so conservatively yesterday. Instead of playing to win, it looked like they were playing not to lose. Never a good approach. If you have Payton Manning at QB and the kind of quality recievers that Denver has, becoming dependant on a run game that is gaining two yards a carry made no sense. As a Jets fan (sad but true), the Jets sure made a mess of the whole Tebo thing. Which leads to one last observation (about football). Last year, Tebo led the Broncos into the AFC finals. This year, Maning couldn't. What's wrong with this picture.
As a NY sports fan (did I mention how sad this is?), there is one other x Denver player that making me wonder. Whats up with Melo waiting for Kevin Garnett outside of the team bus. Melo has some serious skills, but if he going to let people get under his skin the way he does, this idea that the Knicks can do anything in the playoffs is far fetched. If Garnett made a nasty comment about his wife, settle it up on the court. To approach someone getting on the team bus is not going to accomplish much, except get you suspended for the next game. Hopefully Melo can learn from this and do better, but the learning curve is steep here.
Since no one seems to want Tebo as a QB, perhaps he can join the Knicks and become Melo's presonal protector.
