At the Broncos' official post-Super Bowl news conference, here was John Elway: "We got off to a slow start, got behind early and hung in there. We just played into their hand and were never able to get over the hump."
Here, now, is the post-massacre interview with Custer after Little Bighorn:
"General, what happened out there today?"
Custer: "Well, they showed us some packages we weren't familiar with and they jumped on us early. That's what they do. We really played into their hand. We hung in there but were never able to get over the hump!"
XLVIII was about as exciting as an early February Sunday stroll through "Omaha."
As a Denver Broncos fan, I first want to thank Time Warner Cable for having our TV screen go black in the middle of the Super Bowl, but then I want to complain about them having it come back on again after an hour.
That bad snap by Manny Ramirez on the first play from scrimmage? Just Manny being Manny.
