    Definitely agree. With all the talent on this team besides at QB, it would be nice to get Os enough game-confidence to the point where, if the unspeakable were to happen and Peyton did go down, we wouldn't automatically throw in the towel and say we're doomed.

    (And I swear, I hope I did not just jinx us!)

    Thanks, everyone! ...And I agree, DenverBlood. Leaving Peyton's ankles exposed for 30 more minutes in an already-won ballgame would've been foolish to risk our Super Bowl hopes on. Bummed we didn't get the record, but you're right - that's one of those that you just say "If it happens, it happens."

    We had 7317 yards (both pass and run)

    close!

    i recall they needed about 630 yards of total offense to break the record... so a bit short...

    Story of his career. I think it's a case of being harder on a guy because the level of his greatness is obvious. Sort of how a conductor may be harder on his/her lead trumpet player than the others.

    In hindsight, people will remember him as the greatest.

    I've watched that play four times. It definitely was a forward pass. People are just being whiny.

    Total offensive yards in a season

    Going into Week 17's game against the Raiders we were hot on the heels of the #2 team (2011 Saints, IIRC?). And I know a lot of records did fall yesterday. Does anyone know how we finished in that regard?

    OMG, you should hear what they are saying up here in the Boston sports media. They are appalled that it was obvious that the Broncos were running up the score and having Manning throw the ball rather than run it when we got into the EZ solely to get Manning the records and that we need to "be called out" on it. What the hell do we need to be called out on?

    It's not like we kept Manning in the 2nd half. If we wanted to run up the score, we certainly could have done that.

    Are you freaking kidding me. The sports media in Boston is calling out the Broncos for running up a score????? Really???? Like BB and the Pats don't do this???

    They said when the Patriots were going for records they were doing in the context of playing for something (undefeated season) and it was meaningful, while us going for the record was just padding for stats. Ugh, what a bunch of hypocrites.

    And if ESPN was your only source for NFL news, I wouldn't know have anything about it with all these coach firings, and they don't seem to ever shut up about the Dallas Cowboys. They should just rename "First Take" to "The Dallas Cowboy's Show with Skip Bayless, featuring The NFC East & Stephen A. Smith."

I love the fact that he broke both the yardage and TD record in the same season. That hasn't been done since Mario did it nearly 30 years ago.

    I felt the same way seeing him on the bench to start the second half!

    But congrats no less!!!
