Here are some of the highlights of that discussion: Brandon Marshall on the AFC title game: "The Patriots seemed very methodical. The Denver defense came out swinging. It reminded me of the first couple rounds of a heavyweight fight. Where one guy is behind and my only way to win this game is to throw everything I have at him. But the thing I love most about our game is strategy. Most people think we spend a lot of time on the field, but we spend more time in a meeting room." Phil Simms on the AFC title game: "Early in the game, to give somebody like Peyton, who's looking for confidence and to get that rhythm, all quarterbacks are, they let him get that. And Denver didn't let Tom Brady have any easy completions." Marshall on the postgame exchange between Manning and Belichick: "When I talk to guys outside of the league or guys who played in the league and now moved on to do other things, the number one thing that always comes up, is the relationships that you built while in the NFL. And that shows it right there." Eddie George on the postgame exchange between Manning and Belichick: "The mutual respect that was there, that was a special moment. Right after a heartbreaking loss by New England, for him to share that moment with Peyton knowing that it might be his last ride, that was pretty special."
