  • This makes me angry. Well, it looks like I was wrong about Phillips being out of our reach, we should be in prime position to get him. Or maybe even Dorsey or Ellis, that would be sick. And njx, have you forgot or something? It's all Cutler's fault. The fact that the defense has sucked ever since he began starting(and 2 games before) and we scored more points with him than Plummer could dream of, it's all Cutler's fault. It has nothing to do with coaching, ****** defense, receivers dropping balls, or anything like that. It's all on Cutler.

    • Kind of interesting...
      In May, Major League Baseball announced that it had chosen a new schedule for its World Series games on Fox, one that called for a potential Game 5 to be played on a Monday night, opposite the ESPN's "Monday Night Football" game between the Green Bay Packers and the Denver Broncos on Oct. 29 at Invesco Field at Mile High.
      On Monday, the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series, setting up the possibility of a World Series game being played that same day at Coors Field in the same city, just two miles away from the football game. The football game is scheduled to start one-half hour after the baseball game begins.

        • steelers at our house sunday nite...
          at the beginning of the season i honestly predicted us to win by 14.
          i also predicted us to be 4-1 rite now.

          ill leave that to the experts, i am not looking forward to this game. i love watching my team on tv especially when im in wisconsin i dont see very many. i havent seen them win yet, this week is a doubtful game without walker. then we have the packers, if we lose that game ill never hear the end of it. please god light a fire on our team and get us rollin

          • outta curiosity.. how would you feel about getting mcfadden or ray rice or mike hart in the draft?
            granted we need help elsewhere but is just a thought

            i also realize we would have to get ride of shanny in order to get someone like mcfadden. i like the one cut rule but i also like dynamic running. just wanna hear your thoughts rite now.

            • Mike Hart would be perrrrrrrrfect. And a third round guy, potentially. First two rounds, we gotta go defense.

                The Broncos spent the bye week junking defensive coordinator Jim Bates' system and going back to what they played last season. "We just don't have the personnel to play it," said one Denver insider.
                I'd like to see this confirmed from another, more credible source, before fully believing it.

                • My observations.

                  DJ Williams looked like a faster version Al last night (regardless of that lucky pick)

                  Dre Bly- Is getting torched more then he should because he is playing aside Bailey. Last night he didn't have #24, and He should have had 2 picks, which shows the of player he is (i know you already know)

                  Jay Cutler- May not fit our system. His stats were very misleading up to the last 10 minutes. Cutler was playing very mediocre, we just happened to convert several key 3rd downs. He can't continue to make those plays.These are his stats last night if he doesn't make those throws and tucks it and runs. 22-27 248 Yards 3 TD

                  Brandon Marshall- Is our best reciever. IMO he has eclipsed Javon (a healthy javon) in terms of talent. so how bout we use him like javon?

                  Elvis Dumervil- Needs to play every down, or almost every down. Did you see what happened last night? We got initial pressure on Toothlessberger every play. We either need to blitz LB up a middle gap, or have the DT play the middle of the field, because Ben just barely avoided getting sacked, stepped up and either ran or threw it to a reciever who made a cut

                  O line- sucks.

                  Nick Ferguson- Worst Tackling 35 year old safety that can't do anything but tackle in the nfl. Good for nothing. Gets torched deep, misses easy tackles in the backfield, and missed 3-4 others every game.

                    Everything, EVERYTHING tells me the Steelers win this game. The Broncos run defense is abysmal and the Steelers love to run with Willie Parker. The Broncos are missing their best playmaker in Javon Walker, in a game against a good Steelers defense. But I'm going with the gut feeling again, it's telling me the Broncos will win this game. The Broncos are desperate for a win, and Mike Shanahan and the team have spent two weeks getting ready for this game. You don't want Mike Shanahan having that much time to gameplan against you, especially when he beat you the year before. Meanwhile Jim Bates has had more time to work on the defense and get things gelled. And the Broncos are playing at home, I think they come out of Sunday Night Football with a great and much-needed win. Broncos 24, Steelers 20.

                    omg I'm so proud of myself! :p

                    Excellent win for the Broncos last night, they needed it. Make the playoffs and eliminate the Patriots pls.

                      LMAO.

                      I honestly have no idea what would make me happier. Beating these "Patriots" or beating the Red Sox...

                      I like how the Broncos looked yesterday. Some of Cutler's passes were awkward but he played well overall against a good Steelers team. HOpefully this is a sign of things to come. Btw, I LOVED our pass rush last night.

                      Projected win total: 55+

                        Yeah, and with Cutler, like, that's the best defense he's played, probably in his career. And he had a very good game. He threw two picks, but he's a guy who's gonna take chances sometimes so he'll never have Brady or Peyton Manningesque INT numbers. Obviously they should go sown with time, but you have to take the good with the bad. Another thing I loved is we *gasp* threw in the redzone, and it got us two TDs(maybe three, I didnt see the first throw).

                          Yes, that was critical. The zone running scheme isn't nearly as effective at the goal line, and for years Denver has compensated by going play-action to the FB or TE on the goal line (usually on second down). I don't know why Shanny ever got away from that.

                          Even better was the pass to Stokley for the first TD. Cutler has a great arm, and Shanny should make the most out of it. Take shots at the endzone from 20 yards out - keep the defense honest.

                          I know Shanahan wants to be a run-first team, but the weapons we have now just cry out for an aerial attack. The pass can set up the run, just grab a quick lead through the air and then starting pounding away with the running game.

                          • i think we could finish the season 12-4, seriously. yeah i know its a stretch but if we play as good as were capable of, i think we can pull it off. we have..

                            Packers - only weapon on o is passing. our seconday easily trumps that with champ back.

                            Lions - Similar situation, shut down roy will and cj and force them to run.

                            (dont know if this is the exact schedule)
                            Chiefs - larry johnsons been playin pretty poorly, but so was lt before us. they cant stop us on o.
                            Vikings - eh, AD will slow down eventually.
                            Chargers - our only loss. they beat us 41-3 at our house. cant wait to see what happens there... :(
                            Bears - Keep Hester outta the game. Grossman and Griese can possibly pick our D apart, and Benson has been nothing special so far.
                            Raiders - Ha.

                            thats my quick prediction, im not sure if thats the order of the games but ik we play them (chiefs x2)

                            this would be so sweet.

                              I think you're crazy. 11-5 is the best realistically we can get, but most likely we'll finish either 9-7 or 10-6. Our defense did great in the lights off of a bye week, but it could have been a total fluke against a Steelers team that clearly came in underestimating us. If anything, you could easily reverse all of your situations against us... for example:

                              vs. GB: Sure they don't run the ball well, but their defense is not too bad and if Favre can just throw down the middle and fake out Bly for a few long balls they could win.

                              @Det: This one I do think we will win, but the Broncos often play down to a lower team's level. If they play without well preparation and focus against a Detroit team with a motivating Kitna on the road, we could lose.

                              @KC: This one I can almost guarantee we lose. We are horrible at Arrowhead during winter time. Also, as you mentioned, LT didn't do well until against us. I could see LJ still ripping us.

                              vs. Ten: One thing we have been horrible against is a QB that can scramble. VY can do that. Also, the Titans have a very underrated defense. Their defensive line with Haynesworth can pass rush, stop the run, and deflect passes at the line (I can see a tipped INT).

                              @Chi: Their defense hasn't been the same, but it has many weeks to fix itself before us. After what Peterson did to them, I doubt they allow a debacle like that to ever happen again, especially at home. Also, Griese has been serviceable. We won't get a gimme from him like we would from Grossman.

                              @Oak: We should win this, but never overlook a rival team on the road no matter how bad they are. They will always play extra hard. Hell, they almost beat us at home didnt they?

                              vs. KC: As good as KC is at Arrowhead, they are just as bad at Invesco. I see us winning this one, but I don't know how good KC is... they've been doing well recently and beat a SD team at SD that womped us 41-3 at Invesco.

                              @Hou: A very underrated team. Everyone still thinks everyone can just get an automatic win over them but that's not the case. With a big chance to avenge ourselves against SD the following week, we could very well be under prepared against a talented Houston team.

                              @SD: They destroyed us before, and we've lost about 4 in a row against them I believe. This will be a very tough game especially if both SD and we are in the hunt for the AFC West division.

                              vs. Min: AD is a stud. Just because it's the last game we can't expect a team to not try it's best (pending on if Minnisota is definitively out of the playoffs or secured in the playoffs)... refer to the San Fran game last season.

                              Of course, I don't totally disagree with you. I don't think we'll lose all our games either, as I like to be a realistic optimist, but it's good to keep it real man.

                                but face it, we just don't have the talent on defense or on the offensive line to win 11 games, barring MASSIVE breakdowns by our opponents.
                                I think we have talent, but much of our talent is just inexperienced, especially at key positions. Our entire DLine is young. Our QB is young. Marshall and Scheffler are young. DJ is still not used to the MLB position. I think if our players can learn fast, we can be a solid unit. We shall see. And I think we still need to blitz more until our DLinemen can prove otherwise.
