I tried looking for a dup thread on this but couldn't find one.

Who is responsible for catching things like no punter on the field or if a team goes into a non-traditional formation such as Wildcat?

In that case should it have been the ST coach? McDaniels? one of the D captains? Anyone?

I know it was a great win and they have a lot to learn and grow into as a team but I am hoping someone is keeping an eye on formations and personnel.

They should hire Gene Kranz to watch for this.

Pretty early, I think it was the drive when they botched the FG attempt...Karma:giggle:

Wow, how does one miss this? It was right before the fumbled snap on the FG attempt, you saw that one I hope...

We had it defended for a loss. Woodyard couldn't make the tackle.

Yeah - I was left scratching my head as the announcers went on and on about the Broncos not being prepared and being caught off guard. Woodyard was right there to make the play... He just missed the tackle. Maybe the Broncos should have called a time out when they saw that there was no punter (I have no idea what they are coached to do), but it looked to me like they sniffed it out pretty well. Leonard just made a play.
