Broncos Coverage: Mile High Report

It seems unreal that the playoffs are already here. It seems like yesterday that we were talking about courts in Minnesota, old men in suits, and the NFL lockout. Now, for the second straight year, the road to the Super Bowl in the AFC runs through New England. Tonight, the Patriots will look to avoid their fourth straight postseason loss, as they host the Denver Broncos.

This week, we've taken a look at every angle. We've talked Tebow, Tebow, Tebow, and Tebow. Now, as the Patriots prepare get ready to take the field for their most important game since Super Bowl XLII, I leave you with a few words that my dad forwarded to me in an email earlier today:

God is eating dinner alone. Aaron Rodgers approaches the table and God asks "What do you believe?" Rodgers says, "I believe in hard work, and in staying true to family and friends." God can't help but see the goodness of Rodgers and offers him a seat to his left.

Tim Tebow walks up and God says, "What do you believe?" Tebow says, "I believe in your total goodness, love and generosity and that you have given all to mankind." God is greatly moved by Tebow's eloquence, and offers him a seat to his right.

Finally, Tom Brady comes over to the table: "And you, Tom, what do you believe?" Tom replies, "I believe you're in my seat."

Tom Brady is a man on a mission, and he knows the opportunity that stands before him. I believe the Broncos will put up a good fight tonight, but I think Brady wills the Patriots to a win. Greg's Prediction: Patriots 31 Broncos 20
