Reading all the stuff about a Brady/Manning AFC Championship showdown got me to thinking. I know it's skipping ahead a week and we have to take care of business but my thoughts about such a power clash in the championship game apply to Week 2 as well.
Tom Brady cannot run his machine gun tempo offense if we're really bringing the Thunder. It's been louder than I've seen in years (maybe ever) at Mile High and that's going to be one of the biggest factors that could tip the game our way.
One thing I wanted to point out though is that it's imperative that we bring the Thunder on 1st and 2nd downs too! This is the playoffs baby and who cares if you lose your voice after the game. 3rd downs are difficult on the road but if we bring it on 1st and 2nd downs imagine how much more mayhem we'll do!
