    No the refs just called him for what he's probably been doing most of the year.

          man, you KC fans think that every broncos player MUST be doing something illegal. If we succeed at anything, it's almost always because we're cheating.

          During this game, I saw the the Colts do the same thing Neil was doing...the only thing is that Neil was doing it WAY more than the Colts. I think Neil had more penalty yards than the entire colts team. If he's been doing it all year, then they would have been calling it all year. I think he wasn't in football shape and had to cheat to get his performance to normal. He got caught, which he should have. He should have then pulled himself out or something. He was killing our drives. Should be 2nd and 3, instead 1st and 20.

            Give me a break. The refs call on the chop block was appropriate, but the holding calls were iffy. That crap happens every down and should not have been called. I saw several plays where the Colts O-Line was doing the same stuff. Not saying that the refs blew the game (the Broncos did that), but if you call one you should call all.
            Patriotic dissent is a luxury of those protected by better men than they.

              Dan Neil, he didnt keep us from 31 points! thats how much we would have needed to be even close.....ask the defense what they were gaining out of this embarrasing show.

                i agree... he kept us from getting 7, maybe 14 if we're lucky. But 7 points here and 7 points there creates a little momentum. You know just as well as I do that momentum rules in the NFL. One key play can almost ruin a half, and 4 key plays can help to ruin a game.

                I agree, defense stunk, but those penalties that Neil had...unbelievable timing. It killed any momentum we had.

                  Please don't group me with other fans! He was holding he got busted, he's been doing it all year. So has every other offensive linemen in the NFL. He was just getting owned so badly Sunday that his holding was obvious.

                    Are you kidding?

                    This is not Pete Rose we're talking about here...this is Dan Neil. Of course he didn't "throw" the game. What a dumbass statement to make.

                    Why don't you ask every member of a team that has lost who's gotten a flag thrown on him if he "threw the game."

                    I'm sure Dan hates this loss more than we do....

                      ok, sorry. we hear it alot, especially from alot of KC fans. "Denver cheats, bla bla bla". it gets old real quick, especially after a season-ending pounding.

                        If holding can be called on every play, then shouldn't the referee's keep the holding calls somewhat balanced between the teams? I really question the timing on calls made in the NFL. It seems to kill momentum on drives or give a team unwarrented field position at the end of games. I don't want to make a conspiracy theory, but I do feel that officials should never dictate a ballgame.

                          no conspiracy thoery here

                          I don't go by the belief that the refs can't dictate a game unless it's basketball, boxing or umpire's strike zone. obviously one of the defensive lineman for the colts put a bug in the refs ear that dan was holding and he got caught over and over again. defensive lineman are always complaing to the refs about illegality of the o-line's blocks so that's nothing new but i guess dan couldn't escape the holds. It's everywhere but after the personal foul i would have pull him out for a couple plays just to get his head straight because all of his penalties were on scoring drives.

                            Wasn't there a commercial with some referees where he says "Of course holding can be called on any play of any game. But, we chose to call it at this critical time just to pi$$ you off"? I think I paraprased it. but, it's pretty funny.

                              easy on your high horse there chef fans. in answer to the post though, no i dont think Dan threw the game. Dan's great on that line and had a really pumped up defense to deal with. maybe some calls were bad, they probably werent but he did what he had to to safe guard Jake, Clinton and the rest of the team on the offensive side of the ball.
                              i dont think anyone "threw" the game, but our defense sure didnt play like the "number 1 ranked run defsnse in the nfl," and the "number 7 pass." we never should have layed down against green bay, i said that last Monday... if there's one thing thats a MUST NOT DO, its walk into the playoff's having lost all your momentum.
                              mum's the word.. cause it seems no matter what i say right here, it always gets deleted.
