Tebow era ends with a blowout by Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- It was one of the few moments during this stunning run, during this odds defying time, when Tim Tebow lost his cool. It was understandable. He was on the receiving end of a historic beatdown.

Tebow had been sacked and felt the hit merited a roughing penalty. No flag was thrown. Tebow screamed in the direction of the official. Screamed again. Screamed some more. There were several other similar outbursts as the score widened from huge to massive to humiliating.

At one point in the fourth quarter, Tebow had six completions to Tom Brady's six touchdowns. That just about says it all. The 45-10 final score doesn't do justice to what a stunning blowout this was. A few plays here and there and New England could have scored 60.

The end for Tebow and the Broncos was an ugly one. It was scary ugly. It was destiny altering ugly.

Tebow showed how not to play the position and Brady, as he has many times before, on many different fields, showed why he might be the best in history. The juxtaposition was as striking as the scoreboard.

Brady set a franchise playoff record with 363 passing yards. He had six touchdown passes. He attacked a frail, at times gutless Denver defense that was afraid to tackle tight end Rob Gronkowski. Brady even punted at the end of the game, the punt going 48 yards. The only thing missing from Brady's night was him hitting for the cycle.

It was a disrespectful move to have Brady punt, but it was still incredible to see.

Meanwhile, Tebow had one of the more miserable nights a quarterback has ever had in the playoffs, and Denver's season comes to an end.

Brady's Day is Over

The team just announced that Brady is not returning to the game.

I could have told you that. His knee buckled like a piece of wet pasta.

Now the real question. Just how bad is Brady's injury?

Uh oh. Brady's hurt

Tom Brady was helped off the field in the first quarter of New England's game against Kansas City.

Now I don't want to be alarmist. I'm not putting Brady in the morgue. But his knee went in places that aren't natural.

Brady had just delivered the football when safety Bernard Pollard crashed into Brady's leg. It wasn't a cheap shot. Just one of those ugly hits that happen in football all the time only this time it happened to Brady.

The injury looked very similar to the time Carson Palmer's knee went zig when his body went zag.

Matt Cassel is now in for Brady.

I'll update the blog regarding Brady's injury as soon as possible. However, considering when it comes to injuries the Patriots are more secretive than the NSA it may be the year 2012 before we get an update.
