the feeling like this Sunday contest would be more of a routine type win (for the Broncos) than a climactic, thunderous, up and down, last man standing type superbowl? I do. Two words 'long drives' . In my 14 years watching him, I have never seen PM this patient... He was always determined, always prepared, always precise, always threw TD in bunches, etc.. but this last few games, he's changed ?? may not be noticeable to many, but all he seem happy to average roughly 4-5 yards a down and keep moving the ball. As if he doesn't want to come-off the field? All these years, he's been for quick strikes (and score) almost to a fault because that also caused quite a few 3 and outs. Now with all of these offensive weapons, he's slowed down? to relish every moment on the field? whatever the reson may be, it means that he is only thinking 1st down and not TD (until it is a TD). Does anybody know how easy that is for PM (in relative term) to keep getting 1st down vs. try to just somehow score ? that is just bad news for the Hawks with the type of receivers they have to cover. they will get tired, exasperated,and.. it is impossible for them to not slip up and hence the double whammy of 'continued long sustained drives'. Oh boy, I think hawks are in for a methodical dismantling and broken will, likes of which they have not experienced in there professional lives.. just have a feeling that players like knighton, Bailey, Ayers, Philips and DRC will be itching to get on the field for their chance to play in SB too.. how can that be good news for hawks?
