He did not play well last night, but I cannot blame him for trying to make plays when he's literally the only thing going for his team. The defense is awful, the O-Line can't block, the RB's suck, and his only weapon is a 5'10 slot WR.

Indy needs to get him some help bad, but oh wait, they already traded their 1st round pick for a backup RB.
Case Keenum almost beat KC with 0 RBs and 1 TE.....just saying.

Plus KC lost that game all on their own, you dont get soft the start of the 2nd half because you have a lead. Reid went all Kubiak on that game. The defense started playing a soft zone, KC went entirely away from what got them the big lead in the first place.

Plus Luck dont help himself by throwing as many picks in the play-offs as he did. Including 4 alone vs the Pats, that is not exactly putting ur team in position to win.

I'm not absolving him of turning the ball over. What I'm saying is that, when you are singularly tasked with carrying your team to victory, turnovers will happen. He made some great throws during that game, but with no defense and no running game he literally had to do everything if they were going to win.

As for the actual INT's, the first one was awful. The second was not his fault, RB tipped it to defender (very reminiscent of Martin pick against JAX). The third was bad, as it was forced into double coverage. The fourth was not his fault, WR admitted to running the wrong route.

Brady has done it with a bunch of nobodys and some terrible defenses, all i am saying is that people here who think luck is already in the HOF need to realize he isnt yet. Not talking to you specifically but the man crush around here on luck is making me sick...

So far in his NFL career he has been pretty good, but not great.

Brady had a great defense behind him when he won his first SB. In recent years it has been all him, but early in his career he was able to lean on his team for support. Luck doesn't have that luxury.

I haven't put Luck in the HOF just yet, but I do think he will be the next great QB in the NFL. I think the guys who rag on him are just pissed that he plays for the Colts, although I understand some guys get burnout from the media hype. JMO.

I really think Carolina has a better shot in this game than most people think. Two keys:

-Newton takes care of the ball
-Defense contains Kaepernick's legs

I really don't see Kaepernick beating this defense with his arm.

Just lost a little respect for Cam Newton and his socceresque flop. If that were a Texan QB I'd feel the same way.

*******

Next time Carolina gets close they will surprise only the Niner D with a short pass for the TD.

Carolina has gotten away with pass interference on a number of occasions today. Mikell blatantly sought a player out and got in his face and no flag.

Bad calls both ways, IMO. Including the last TD that SF was almost not given.

******

I'm watching this game with red and gold shades so take my thoughts with a grain...lol. The flop by Newton was just pathetic.

I'm no big fan either, but I like a coach that works the sidelines like he does. Those antics actually pay off in my opinion. I just hope O'Brien does some of that next year.

Don't really care who wins the games today. It's kind of nice to just watch the game for what it is. I'd kind of like Manning to lose, but that would mean that piss ant Phillip Rivers would have to win. Either way I'm not happy with the ending.

Best coach in the league not named Belichick. 3 years at SF and looks like he might get his 3rd NFC Championship appearance.

Damn. SF really needed to punch it in while Carolina was down to make it a three-score game.

This situation right here makes me nervous.
