    The way we moved the ball we should have put up like 30 points. I've never seen anything like that where we scored our only two touchdowns on 70 + yard bombs, and on other drives we had methodical picking apart of the defense but didn't score touchdowns. It's amazing that Ryan Grant was going to get a small percentage of the touches and made a huge contribution after Wynn got injured. He was always moving forward and getting 4 or 5 yards. It wasn't one of those where a guy gets 20 carries for 40 yards but then has a 50 yarder to boost his average, nope, he got good yards almost every time and didn't need a huge run to boost his average. We should have kept running it in the redzone but maybe McCarthy felt we didn't have a good redzone running situation, with no power back available. Still should have had a back in there every time though.

    Defense. There was poor tackling on the outside a lot. It looks like Shanahan decided that's our weakness since our corners play straight up man to man and there's no zone coverage in that area, he continued to attack it. It almost cost us the game. They still only gave up 13 points though. Run defense was really good except that big run play that got called back for a holding penalty. Now that I think about it that call pretty much balanced out the 3 terrible calls on Bigby. It was a huge run. Cutler is tough, that guy has a cannon arm. He made throws that nobody else has made on us this year. Expect opponents to try to follow the blueprint that Shanahan drew up to attack our defense. Tons of crossing rub routes to disrupt the man coverage and passes in the flat to the RB's. Aaron Kampman was a beast. 3 sacks and 4 hurries. Hell he could have had 2 more sacks on the Brandon Marshall trick play (missed the tackle twice). Our blitzes up the middle were really effective at causing incompletions except when Cutler was able to get the ball out a nice screen play. A few times Hawk and Barnett were sent up the middle and caused incompletions. Cutler went 21 for 37, I estimate the blitz pressure caused maybe 5 of those so that's good. I thought the blitzes were pretty effective and we didn't do them that much. They burned us once on the blitz. There was one where Hawk came through the B Gap and drilled Cutler. That's what I like to see.


    Every call on Bigby except the kicking the ball was ********. I don't wanna hear anything down talking him except that kicking the ball one. Look at the replays and none were blatant except the kicking one. The refs were nitpicking on both sides all night long. Unfortunately most of it went against us and 3 of them against him that just as easily couldn't have gotten called and nobody would have even complained for a penalty on him.

    Anyway, we're 6-1, a win is a win. Bigby had another 7 tackles. Expect lots of more of him down in the box against KC, we got LJ and Tony Gonzalez.

        Things i liked:

        -Collins played his best game of the year, shoud have had 2 or 3 picks
        -Kampman was great
        -Favre was almost perfect
        -We needed a big, physical, north-south, hard nose back for our running game and we found it in Grant

        Things i didnt like:

        -Inconsistent Defense: It weird...this defense doesnt allow a lot of points but sometimes they look awful and then they are just dominant. Bottom line, they bend sometimes but they never break. I'd like to see more consistency from them.
        -Penalties: Too many stupid penalties that gave life to the Broncos all game long.

        This game could have been over at the half but we couldnt burry them and it almost cost us.

          I have to disagree with you here. The penalties were deserved. It wasn't just that either, he blew coverages at least a couple times aswell. Everyone has bad games and I'm willing to leave it at that. He's played well up to that game, but he was off on Monday.

              Great post, the defense was shady in the first and fourth quarters, and dominate in the middle. The tackling was awful on Denver's last drive. Penalties also were a huge problem, Bigby needs to get his head out of his ***.
