This is the type of game in the past we would lose and lose big. I'll know more about this team being a real post-season contender or not by how this game is played. I'll be there, so I hope we do well more so than normal.

I think Pittsburgh matches up well with us. I think we're going to need either defensive or special teams points to pull this one out.

Denver wins. This isn't your Shanny Broncos where a fade is about to start. Its very awkward right now because you feel like oh oh we have been here before but then you have to realize this is a different team. 10 years of this makes you kind of react like Pavlovs dogs!

It won't be easy but it won't be like the Baltimore game either!

I agree with BCJ the choices sucked. We don't win by a Rothlisberger fluke and we don't win in a route. But I wasn't about to chose Denver winning on a screw up by Plastic Face.

I wouldn't be surprised if you won or lost, you guys are definitely one of the best Teams in the AFC and you get this game at Home and have a huge Home Field Advantage.

For personal reasons I'd like a Steelers win, but I'm not very confident in that happening.

I think we are different team but, O is also alot less this year we aren't lighting it up so far. So in some ways we are better and some ways we are worse it will be interesting to see how we do rest of the year.

I expect them to lose and lose badly. The Ravens defense was a terrible matchup with this offense and the Steelers are even worse with Polumbus in at RT for Harris. Until this offense can muster more than a measely average of 7 points in the 1st half, they're not contenders and people here are delusional if they think otherwise. They can get to 10 wins with 4 against Wash, KC x2, and Oak, but no team that matters is scared of an offense where the HC doesn't trust his QB to throw a ball more than 5 yds past the LOS until the game is out of reach.

This game is only close if the defense and ST set up a few short fields for the offense because Orton and co cannot sustain a drive against the Steelers D with the current playcalling.

I would love to be wrong and I'll be there screaming myself hoarse, but I expect the Steelers to roll tomorrow night.

I got my silly superstitions, which all lucid logic states is absolutely absurd, but somehow my mind won't dismiss. I work on Sundays and Mondays and I more or less get assigned duties not of my choosing. So the first six games I worked and got the same assignment. Last week it got changed up, and tomorrow I'm doing something different again.

Hopefully the Broncos show me how ridiculous it obviously is to think there's a correlation between two clearly unrelated matters. But still, I predict a loss.

Hercules Rockefeller

Denver has 3 left vs KC/Oak and is home against SD, the Bolts only have KC at home. That's a real advantage for Denver. Both still have the Skins and their AFC South opponent. SD still has Cleveland, but also hasn't played Dallas and Cincy like the Broncos have.

Denver's schedule sets up better at this point compared to the Bolts.

I have to agree with this for the most part. I want to see them be competitive and have enjoyed the season thus far. I just feel the Cowboy and Pats games were close to getting out of hand but I give the team credit for turning those games around. The Charger game was also close to going the other way had it not been for Royal. You can't count on that to happen every week.

Until I see this offense show some urgency and come out and jump on someone, I am going to continue to be worried about this team. It's been a great run but I expect the second half of the season to be a struggle.

Where is the I don't know option? I think if Denver wins this game we will win the west but if we lose we are going to choke again to San Diego. I am nervous about tomorrow especially after last week and don't know what to expect other than we should play much better at home.

Kaylore

I voted no. I'm undefeated in games (that matter) attended and haven't been to a game in years. However all things must come to an end. I'll be going with Montrose and the last game I went to with him was the Packers pre-season game and we lost. I'm hoping I got my loss out of the way there, so we'll see.

I don't like Polumbus, who struggled all through camp, starting. I don't like that we don't attack down field more and I don't like our punt unit. I think we'll be doing a lot of punting. McDaniels said they had their best week of practice this week, but I'm still in "show me" mode and until we can win these types of games, I'm remaining skeptical. I don't expect to win, but I'll hope to enjoy myself and enjoy rooting for a new, tougher Broncos team. Let's hope I'm wrong!

This is one ticket I wish I had kept for this season, but fearing weather issues, I wasn't sure I could make it. I expect a smash mouth affair that the Steelers win, but I also honestly believe special teams and a turn-over or two will decide this one. The Broncos have surrendered a kick of one kind or another for a touchdown in two straight games. This can't happen again for the Broncos to have a chance.

I'm sure Piit. will crowd towards the LOS for runs , screens, and the short passing game. Thats what makes it important to throw down field . Even if thats not his strong suit, Orton needs to throw some deep patterns to keep the defense from stacking the line. We need a strong effort in all 3 phases to win this game.

BroncoMan4ever
11-08-2009, 10:35 PM
this isn't going to be a blowout game either way. this is going to be a dogfight all night long, and it is going to come down to who plays better in the 4th quarter. no matter the outcome, win or loss, it is going to be a game decided by less than 7

to be completely honest, i have wanted to see how McDaniels would respond to a loss. tomorrow is a big test. it is easy to coach and have everyone follow your lead when you are winning, but it is a little more difficult when there is a loss.

i think McDaniels has spent a lot of time finding areas the team can exploit against Pittsburgh and he is going to make sure the team is ready to come out really well prepared

My Karma vote - we get destroyed 76.3 to 5.

My realism vote - I don't know what the hell guys around here are thinking? Lots of strong negative vibe in this thread.

1. The Steelers are going to commmit to the run, but we know the game will ultimately be in the hands of Big Ben. Our coverage so far this season has been excellent, and that bodes well for us. I feel like most of Elvis' sacks this year have been coverage sacks, and no QB in the league tries to stretch a play more than Ben. I see us getting 2-3 sacks tonight. If one of those is a fumble, that would be sweet.

2. I expect our offense to make more progress this week, and I expect Marshall and Scheffler to each get a TD grab. Polumbus isn't spectacular - but I don't think he played badly either. He looks every bit as good as Pears was at RT, but Polumbus might be a better run blocker. I would like to see Orton operate a little more from the shotgun and keep the defense spread out. In other words - I don't expect McD to lay two eggs in a row.

I see a tough battle again, and it is a huge challenge. My greatest concern going into tonight is our punting unit. If they don't allow a blocked punt, I think we win.

The defense has to keep Ben bottled up in the pocket even at the expense of sacks.

The Steelers whole passing game relies on him keeping the play alive.

The offense really has to come out firing early to give itself some rhythm.

Just because Denver doesnt throw bombs doesnt mean all they do is screens
Kyle didnt have a problem throwing 14-20 yards down the field against SD

But against Baltimore he didnt have time and despite the fact that Baltimore kept blitzing, we kept having Kyle drop back and try to go through his progressions even though the oline was getting manhandled

Yep.

People keep talking about defenses for this game, but the real storyline tonight will be the offenses. Both defenses should do adequately well against the run. That means it is down to a QB/receiver game.

If Orton can find open receivers 20+ yards downfield, we win.

our line was getting owned on everything last week. Baltimore flat out just overpowered them all game long. that isn't going to be the case with Pittsburgh, because they don't have the necessary talent along the line to do what Baltimore did. I mean FFS they are starting Nick Eason at one of the ends tonight. the guy not only wasn't good enough to make the team on our turds of a Defense the last few years, and was completely out of football until a few weeks ago.

Mcd..PLEASE PROVE ME WRONG

i really don't think this is a team that will falter in the 2nd half of a season. simply because of us not faltering in the 2nd half or in 4th quarter of games. we are playing better in the 2nd half of games.

under Shanahan when we would fade down the stretch we also faded in the 2nd half of games a lot. discipline was not there for the team in the 2nd half of games or 2nd half of the season. that isn't the case this season.

I'm torn I think winning is the best overall but, some part of me thinks a Steeler blowout would reinforce to McD Orton ISN'T a long term solution to get us to next level.

wtf is wrong with idiots like you still spouting that same crap that maybe a loss is the best thing for the franchise.

in the offseason it was lets hope we tank this season so McDaniels gets fired. now in the presence of a 6-1 start it is lets hope we **** this season away so that we get a new QB.

grow a brain retard. be happy that this team is kicking ass, and go with it. hope that Orton shows he is a guy that McDaniels can hitch his future to and lead us to playoffs and championships.

i couldn't stand McDaniels early in the offseason, but because i am a Broncos fan, i never once called for him to be a failure in Denver, i was pulling for him to be right in his moves and be a success. true Broncos fans should hold that same attitude, you may not like a guy or think he is as good as someone else, but you should stand behind that man hoping he proves you wrong and handles his business and gets the job done.

also, this season it isn't like we are winning despite Orton playing like ****. he is playing really well. and is responsible for a couple of our wins. he outplayed arguably the best in the game head to head when we beat NE, with 2 late 90+ yard TD drives to tie the game and another 58 yard drive in OT to get us into field goal range for a win.

he has shown he can take the team onto his back and carry them to victory, what more does he have to do for people like you to see that and stop asking for his replacement and just be happy he is kicking ass right now.

this is why I am not concerned about the "blueprint to beat us" yet
Not every team has guys like Ngata and Suggs

With that said, our line had some protection issues and blew some assignments
Definately needs to be addressed if we are to compete with some of the other top defenses in the leauge

I would say the Dallas D Line is better than the Pittsburgh D Line, and the Ravens have the toughest one we will have seen all year

Their line isn't what concerns me, where they bring LB's and the secondary in to blitz from is what concerns me

I'm torn I think winning is the best overall but, some part of me thinks a Steeler blowout would reinforce to McD Orton ISN'T a long term solution to get us to next level.

:rofl:

And yet, there are some people around here who claim that people aren't secretly wishing for Denver FAIL.

Amazing.

I expect them to lose and lose badly. The Ravens defense was a terrible matchup with this offense and the Steelers are even worse with Polumbus in at RT for Harris. Until this offense can muster more than a measely average of 7 points in the 1st half, they're not contenders and people here are delusional if they think otherwise. They can get to 10 wins with 4 against Wash, KC x2, and Oak, but no team that matters is scared of an offense where the HC doesn't trust his QB to throw a ball more than 5 yds past the LOS until the game is out of reach.

This game is only close if the defense and ST set up a few short fields for the offense because Orton and co cannot sustain a drive against the Steelers D with the current playcalling.

I would love to be wrong and I'll be there screaming myself hoarse, but I expect the Steelers to roll tomorrow night.

Damn, this guy was spot on. What a bad ass.
