"The Broncos have been attacked the 6th most in the NFL in the deep middle of the field. Not only that, they are dead last in the yardage given up to that zone and are surrendering a 68% completion rate (29th in NFL)."

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

The defense playing right now isn't the same one that got lit by Detroit and GB though.

Chargers offensiveline may as well be rolling out the red bloody carpet for DooMillerVille.

Thursday night we saw Tim Tebow take a cruise by Revis Island who made a bad business decision in avoiding making the tackle of Tebow on the run.

Well on the otherside of the ball, former Super Bowl contender Mark Sanchez was on the receiving end of the pounding while being introduced to life in DooMillerVille.

Tebow may indeed consuming the glory of the Broncos promising 4-1 run after having helped resurrect the team from a hopeless 1-4 start, the worst start since the 1999 season.

But make no mistake about it, Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil with their 3 1/2 sacks each during the Broncos past 3 game winning streak, are the ones who are fueling the Light of that Glory.

Broncos Defense has allowed just 12.3 points per game in this 3 game win streak.

They held the Jets to 11 less points then they averaged with a defense that is only getting better,

The DooMillerville Sandwich accounted for the first teammates in 11 years to split sacks in three consecutive games.

The pressure of the 7 sacks in the three game streak, played a huge role in the 4 interceptions possessed by the Broncos defens; the last of which was a pick six.

Elvis not only led the league in sacks in 2009, but he set a Broncos record with 17 sacks as well. This record could however be in jeapordy. With 9 1/2 sacks this season, Miller is just 2 sacks away of the Broncos rookie record set by the Orange Crushes very own, Rulon Jones in 1980.

The production of sacks, INT's wins and Tebows TD's, has certainly overshadowed the turnover rate the past 5 1/2 games. Tebow has had only 1 Interception in 125 passing attempts.

They say games are won and lost in the trenches, but the turnover factor can not be denied, as Mark Sanchez who was brutalized play after play against a defense that ended Matt Cassels season, and possibly career. Defense wins championships? Well so does defending the ball from entering the hands of the opponent with turnovers.

Folks want to claim Tebow is inconsistent, but fact of the matter is, Tebow is consistent when it comes to protecting the ball in the passing game.

Watching Tebow jack the opponent for 10 TD's in just 5 1/2 games with only one interception, truly puts in perspective the difference a good QB can make when you take into consideration the impact Cam Newtons 16 turnovers that include 14 interceptions has had on a Panthers team; a team with a receiving corp that is more talented than the Broncos. Newton had 4 intrceptions yesterday against the Lions.

Speaking of 4 interceptions, now that Jay Cutler is out of the picture, Tom Brady appears to be the only major obstackle left for the Broncos to win out. Considering he had 4 int's against the Bill's and 4 Int's in two other games, it will be interesting to see how he favors being in a DooMillerVille sandwich.

Chargers almost lost to Tebow when he nearly brought the Broncos back from a two score deficit in the second half after Kyle Orton was finally benched. It will be interesting to see how the chargers plan on not only stopping Tebow, but stopping Phillip Rivers from adding to his 21 turnovers this season, 17 of which are interceptions.

Chargers, Vikings, Bears present the Broncos with an opoportunity to take their three game win streak to Six, sitting pretty at 8-5 before facing the New England Patriots at Mile High.

After that its the Bills and Chiefs who are in the middle of an end of the seaon spiral into oblivian. Having seen Orton fold under pressure, has me thinking that this game will be an all out assualt on Orton as DooMillierVille will be looking to wreak havoc on the choker.

The DooMillerville double headed beast on defense, along with Tebow being a double headed beast on offense threatening opponents with the pass as well as the run, make the Broncos not only Play-off contenders at this point, but Super Bowl contenders at that, or at least that is what Folks will be saying when they watch the Broncos dismantle the Patriots.

Watching the Broncos go from a 1-4 team to possibly 11-5 is an amazing feet that ought not be missed... Folks said Tebow could not play at this level, win at this level, folks said no way the Broncos could beat the Jets, now going 10-6 seems to be on par at this point. Could the Broncos be in route for a 9 game winning streak? Stay tuned, you will not want to miss how Tebow puts the Ew In DooMillerVille. The win's might be ugly to some, but they are a thing of beauty for this fan who can't wait for John Fox to open up the passing game against the Chargers.

These stats don't matter because our defense much better last 3-4 weeks. Also Chargers now have 2 more olineman out, one the LT so running left may not work that well.

I have a wild prediction. Because they have to worry about Miller and Doom, Ayers gets a couple sacks.

I think we're too over confident, San Diego looked decent against a very good Chicago team, Rivers threw the game away himself. Tomorrow could be a painful reality check, we're going against a team we are notoriously bad against and they need to win to be just one game out.

I agree with all of this. SD has our number and Rivers only lost twice to the Broncos ever. Broncos IMO will need to score at least 24 points to win this. That would be the defense playing pretty well. We probably need a defensive TD or a special teams TD to win this thing.

San Diego has been devastated with injuries up and down the offensive line, and I don't think it's just a coincidence that the sacks on Rivers and his INTs have both increased dramatically.

A year ago, this would have been a moot point for Denver, which was, by far, the worst pass-rushing defense in the NFL. The addition (and development) of Miller and the return of a healthy Dumervil have hopefully changed all of that and the Broncos should now have the weapons to fully exploit this glaring vulnerability.

But you never really know until they play the game.

Sorry but if River's is playing injured he needs to tak as many shot on him as possible. Players play hurt all the time. Injured is another deal all together. Pressure Rivers up the middle and force him and his weak ass arm to move side line to side line.

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Wow, that somewhat surprises me. Not that we'd struggle, but that we'd struggle to that extent. But, looks like we're still in the bottom 3rd in points allowed, so this makes some sense.

I still think we're headed in the right direction in that regard.

I do expect SD to be able to put up a few points on us tomorrow. We won't be able to do the "wait until the 4th quarter and score under 20 total points to win" thing tomorrow.

I love the optimism in this post but super bowl?? We're getting a little ahead of ourselves. We are not opening up the passing game against SD unless we get down by a couple of scores early or are down late in the game. I fully expect a run run run offense. I also expect to see a lot of screens coming from SD tomorrow.

I watched that game and the only reason why the Chargers looked decent was because the Bears defense wet the bed on several 3rd and long situations. Some of them being 3rd and very long and they allowed big completions which kept those drives alive.

I also think, however, it still will be a close game. The Broncos, with their style, are not blowing anybody out. Just hanging tough and finding a way to be clutch in the end. Should be a great game.

San Diego is one of those teams that tells itself it wants to be balanced and at the beginning of the game, will be running the ball. Then as the game progresses, Norv reverts to letting Rivers throw it around and the running game becomes more and more scarce.

So basically, if we defend the run early, theres a good chance we know Norv will throw a lot more later.

I have a feeling SD will throw a lot of screens against us though.

The run hole tendencies listed on the link by the OP are instructive, although the pass area chart is not. What's important isn't where they throw the ball, its the most common route combinations they use. They aren't going to throw it short and to the right if you are playing 3 Cloud all day, no matter how often they threw it there before. What matters are the combos they like, not the area.

My prediction is that San Diego is going to try running the ball repeatedly at the center of Denver's defense. In their first game, Hester and Matthews averaged 4.3 and 5.2 ypc and over 170 yards on the ground. If they can keep that up, there's no reason to put the ball in the air. If they can do it consistently, they will eventually get wide open match-ups down the field for Rivers to exploit.

Denver will need to take away the middle and control the edges...a tough assignment against Jackson, Gates, and Brown.

It will be very important to limit the number of touches for San Diego on offense by playing keep away and hopefully take away.

I'm excited to see how Tebow and the whole offense plays this game. If the Broncos can put 14 points on the board on early, this will could eliminate San Diego's running game and make them play right into Denver's strength on defense.

I agree that San Diego is disparate for a win but they are also fragile and will likely crumble if Denver doesn't give them hope early in the game. Rivers is especially prone to fail under pressure and even more so when he gets roughed up even a little bit. Knocking him to the ground early and often will lead to wasted pass plays and INT's.

I'm counting on seeing him whining to the ref's on every failed play. I hope there is a lot of it.

Who is the No. 1 team standing in the way of the Broncos winning the Superbowl? Easy answer, Packers.

Packers have a huge weakness in regards of their passing defense.
They rank No.1 in passing TD's allowed with 19.

There is only one way to beat the Packers, pass,
and by avoiding two things: penalties and turnovers.

Now we have to aim for the prize, and in order to do so
Tebow has got to get his fair share of passing reps,
outside of having to predictably pass from behind.

Tebow needs to develop with this passing unit,
this means he needs to come out firing, and keep on firing,
without having to wait for an ultraconservastive scheme to poise us to
predictably pass from behind, like we have been.

That is all there is to it. EFX can not afford to stunt Tebows growth any further
with this passing unit than they already have. That is all there is to it.

If we are going to position ourselves for the same goal every play-off contender possess,
and that is to win a Super Bowl,
we absolutely have to keep our eye on the prize,
not to mention the biggest contender of that prize~!!

There is no doubt about it I am hoping they get no play-makers going on D- today creating turnovers and I hope for Rivers to continue to be sloppy with the ball on O If SD continues falling apart Denver should have a good, good day
