PROPS and DROPS from the Broncos improbable OT win over the Bears:
PROPS: Lost in the chaos is the man who got them to this level of craziness: Matt Prater. A 59 yard FG isn't really an easy thing. Spare me the "altitude" kicking speech, (maybe the Donks can keep the 'K' balls in a humidor) you still have to kick the ball straight (as Gary Barnett would say "through the uprights".) Prater just boomed the game tying kick and there was no doubt the minute it left his foot. Fast forward to his OT kick and was like the guy was kicking an extra point.
DROPS: Marion Barber is undoubtedly the goat this morning for his OT fumble and going out of bounds late to stop the clock. However, the out of bounds play, while not "heads up", can be explained a little by plain physics. When Barber took the initial hit, his momentum flung him to the sideline. He was going out of bounds at that point unless he can do some freaky 'Matrix' type shit on the field. He had just broke a tackle on the TD run so breaking a tackle on that play weren't so far fetched. Credit to the Bronco defender who actually made teh hit and got Barber towards the sideline.
PROPS: When players like Von Miller play with those ridiculous looking casts they look like they should be fighting in Tekken or some video game. Von "Clubber" Miller.
DROPS: DeMaryous Thomas redeemed himself somewhat on the TD drive, but up to that point he and his fellow WRs were not having their best day (Decker multiple drops, and Thomas had more than a few.) Thomas just whiffed on Tebow's money long pass; make that catch and the game is effectively over, even at 7-0. At that point the Bears almost looked tired and on their heels trying to figure out what the Donks were going to do on offense.
DROPS: Yes, that was spray paint covering up the high school hash marks on the field yesterday. Taggers unite.
PROPS: Yes the Bears went into somewhat of a prevent defense on the TD drive, but Tebow still made some tough throws and the WRs worked to get open. The TD pass was similar to last week as Tebow nearly crossed the line of scrimmage (Bears' fans should wonder why Lovie Smith didn't challenge that play. Yes, I love typing 'Lovie', that's a football coach's name? Lovie) and threw to a wide open Thomas.
