  • I guess we all had our expectations too high thinking that Jay could come in as a rookie and immediately show that he was superior to Plummer. However, I was looking for some flashes of brilliance, but I didn't see much of that either. But, I'll be patient and withold judgment. So this game really sickens me. Not only is it our third loss in a row, it's also ouir third home loss. What gives? We were, again, terrible on all three aspects of the game...

    Offense: Tatum Bell was our only bright spot before he got injured. His rushing was phenomenal in the first half. However, Mike Bell's and Rod Smith's fumbles really killed us. Rookie mistakes by Cutler such as that horrible INT (eerily similar to wat Jake would do), really killed us. When a good home team loses, it's usualy b/c of turnovers, and that was clearly the case.

    Defense: Not too bad in the first half, but the defense still wasn't even that great in the first half. The Seahawks offense was horrible first half... more than our defense being good. Also, in the second half, our defense is just awful. You're right NJX, get rid of Coyer NOW. Also, we need to fix our DLine first round. It's beyond pathetic... great rushing D, but in critical moments on third downs in the fourth quarter, our DLine was nonexistant and it really killed us.

    Special Teams: HORRIBLE. Like I mentioned a ways back. Losing Sauerbrun will hurt us. Ernster sucks. When he kicks off, the ball reaches the five yard line. Every other kicker that kicks at mile high at least kicks the ball five yards into the endzone. Also, our ST coverage needs to learn to tacke. It's absotuiltely painful to watch. Also, get rid of DWill as a returner. He's jsut awful. Every other game he commits a stupid fumble on ST.

    Projected win total: 55+

    • Cutler

      I thought he was fine. Made good reads as to when to take ball and run out of bounds versus throw into good or double coverage. Obviously the interception was a mistake but unlike Plummer, Jake was in his seventh year, Cutler was in first game.

      Good to see Marshall take on the contact after the catch. I think Marshall will be a solid WR after the offseason to add some more bulk. If he will go over the middle, he will have a career here in Denver. It will be interesting to see how the chemistry between all the backups works (Cutler, Marshall, and second round tight end). It is amazing how many of us had Marshall in our mocks - most in third round not 4th round.

      He does have visibly more speed on the ball, and a nice release when he plants, squares shoulders and steps into throw. Good mechanics for the most part but needs to square up to be more accurate.

      Thought it was respectfull of Shanahan to jump on the sword after the game at take blame for not putting calls in for Cutler. Not true but respect when Shanahan does that.

      Not sure we will make playoffs but, like having a core of good players. I cointinue to wonder why Lynch is out on the field in coverage and our other safety is playing the run? Lynch is the one player I would most like to see us replace this year as he is a liability with his speed as WRs just run by him (see touchdown and without even bumping the guy he was 10 yards behind reciever 30 yards down the field) He needs to go and a 1st rounder on Safety would be my choice for now - think LSU in 1st round or a few good second rounders will be available.

      • I know Jake drove you guys crazy but as a Bengal fan, I feel you had a better chance at the playoffs with Jake rather than Jay. Rookies are going to have some real bad games and I almost see it like throwing in the towel by putting Jay out there. We'll see. I know the Bengals game with you worries me but I look at it as a must win to get us in the playoffs.

          throwing in the towel? what on earth has given you the impression that, at any point this season, jake played significantly better than jay just did? the point was, in a way, that jay couldn't be much worse, and that all things being equal, it was better to get cutler some snaps. keep in mind that jay had nothing to do with our first consecutive losses in who knows how long.

                    • I thought Cutler played well... He'll be a good QB for the Broncos.

                      I do doubt they'll go far into the playoffs THIS year (he IS just a rookie), but Cutler will be just fine...

                      • us going to the playoffs has nothing to do with jay cutler and everything to do with atrocious defensive play-calling and horrible offensive line and special teams play.

                        and that all assumes that the fumbles last week were an aberration.

                        • So Elway approves of Cutler. I think Cutler was just nervous. His passes were wobbly and short/overthrown. We saw that he can make those throws tho so I think once he adapts to the game a bit more he'll be great. My only concern is that now he's gonna go against the Chargers....

                          Btw, what does QFT mean?

                          • quoted for truth.

                            i think jay got the shaft, in getting thrown in with a terrible offensive line against two good defenses with excellent pass rushers. he won't look good this week either, imo, but at least we have arizona and san francisco on the schedule to help him get into a groove before next year.

                              • meh, we should just pull a reverse-redskins, since it seems like there's little to no chance we'll address o-line or defensive line in the first this year. just trade our first for someone's next year so that we'll have the ammo to move up and get him or slaton.
