There have been plenty of times this season when unexpected Broncos wins left fans of the opposing team shocked and angry, as the Twitter eruptions after Denver victories over the Carolina Panthers and the Cincinnati Bengals earlier this season demonstrate.
But if anything, the responses by lovers of the New Orleans Saints after their squad's 25-23 loss to the Broncos yesterday was even more splenetic.
How did they react to safety Justin Simmons blocking an extra point that would have given Drew Brees and company a one-point lead with under ninety seconds to go and Will Parks returning it for a two-point score that was upheld despite the Saints' belief that he stepped out of bounds?
It can be summed up in one word — and it stars with "F."
Continue to count down our choices for the twenty most memorable F-bomb tweets dropped in the wake of this controversial (and, from a Broncos booster's perspective, miraculous) play.
