Thread for people who enjoy winning
 
:strong: :yayaya: :wave: :~ohyah!: :sunshine:

Figured I'd try to balance out the gloom and doom around here. You'd think we were in last place, and just got whacked... reading the other threads around here.

We WON.

We're 4-1, we're clearly in a battle with only one team for this division, and there doesn't appear to be any dominant team in the AFC.

Our defense has shown it can win close, low-scoring games... and while our offense has struggled, they've ABSOLUTELY made plays when they had to, and that's all that matters.

We've got another game we should win next week, and then some real tests.

What's all the crying about? Good lord. We just beat the rai_ers, for flip's sake. Anyone else enjoy winning anymore? I'd love to hear from you.

In addition to hating Jake, I enjoy winning.

DBroncos4life 10-15-2006 09:07 PM

I don't even think we are trying so Im not worried.

BLAZE 10-15-2006 09:07 PM

Game ball goes to the DEFENSE again! I'm very impressed with Coyer's Defense. 1 TD allowed in 5 games now. Isn't that some sort of record?

Get lost.



On a brighter note, Bailey gets rockstar of the game!!

He deserved it last week, too.

Sweet!

Taco John 10-15-2006 09:09 PM

It was great to win... I just don't understand why we aren't winning 13-3 with our future.

Oh well... a win is a win. Nice job defense!

BroncoMatt 10-15-2006 09:10 PM

winning is my favorite

Moon§hiner 10-15-2006 09:13 PM

Winning sucks....my FFL team lost dammit :)

Spider 10-15-2006 09:18 PM

count me in as Happy to be winning .........4-1 is pretty good

freak6 10-15-2006 09:20 PM

Jake Plummer is terrible. The passing game is terrible. Ernster looked like crap tonite. Everyone else was good to excellent.

We just got SHUT out in the 2nd half when we should have been shoveling dirt on the Raiders.

We are in trouble vs the Colts, Chargers, and in the Playoffs.

This should be titled...

THREAD FOR THOSE HAPPY ENOUGH TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS, THEN LOSE

azbroncfan 10-15-2006 09:23 PM

I happy we won, but there is some serious issues with the offense. 12 pts a game will not win a lot of games, If the pass rush becomes ineffective late in the game against Indy in a couple weeks it will be ugly. There is something that just isn't right about this team.

youcandoit1687 10-15-2006 09:23 PM

yeah yeah we won but can a 13-3 "win" against the raiders really be considered a win? theres something to be said about playing to your level not playing down. beating the ravens and patriots in close games, exciting, fulfilling....beat the chiefs in a close game, it was divisional, still rusty, yeah good woohoo....but beating the raiders by only 10 points, good but far from fulfilling.

listopencil 10-15-2006 09:25 PM

I love winning, and I love having a QB who executes the offense that our Head Coach wants to run regardless of how many Bronco fans want us to run a different one. We made our kill stroke with Javon Walker followed by a Tatum Bell TD. We would have had another TD if Sapp hadn't dropped a well-thrown pass on the goal line. No big deal, we didn't even need the Field Goal we got instead.We beat a dangerous winless Raider squad. Jesus-even when Moss was showing some leadership skills all of a sudden. You'd have to be a moron to think the Raiders were laying down for us in this game and we came out of it with a win. I'm really starting to like the all blue uni's by the way. Kind of funny to be the good guys in Navy with OAK wearing white.



By the way, there were a lot of drops tonight. And I mean players were dropping some well thrown balls. I noticed four obviously poorly thrown balls by Plummer in the Pats game but the only one that stands out in my mind from this one was the checkdown to Bell.

Garcia Bronco 10-15-2006 09:27 PM

anyone who isn't happy is a clown. Even madden noticed the conservarive play calls...plus we didn't have the ball a bunch. Great team win.

2KBack 10-15-2006 09:27 PM

yeah, I knew there would be some doomsayers after tonight. Completely ignoring the playcalling. Denver scored on 3 of 4 possesions in the first half (thank Sapp for 3 instead of 7 on one). Then shanny martyballed the second half.

Denver won this game in 1st gear, that's a good thing. They had a gameplan no more advanced than your typical preseason.

azbroncfan 10-15-2006 09:32 PM

Denver's playbook was taken off of Techmo superbowl first version.

ColoradoDarin 10-15-2006 09:32 PM

I'm happy, we won, and we kept another team out of the endzone.

freak6 10-15-2006 09:32 PM

Thread for those who enjoy BLUEBALLS.

ludo21 10-15-2006 09:35 PM

amen 2kback, im glad someone watched the same game i did.

If the Pats game is any indication, we obviously have the weapons and the plays to be a good O.

We are a good team, stop crying for Cutler, Jake played a good game, exactly how Shanny wanted.

This board is funny sometimes..

labronx 10-15-2006 09:37 PM

whoopsie freakin doo, we beat the Raiders at home 13-3!!

Jake Plummer PASSING 11/18 102 5.7 0 0
Jake Plummer RUSHING 6 30 5.0 0 19

Rod Smith 1 12 12.0 0 12

3rd down efficiency
5-11

Do you really think Shanahan has any confidence left in Plummer as an actual passer? He is making him one dimensional, He has turned him into an athlete playing QB. He has no confidence in him as a pure passer, let alone a WC Offense QB.It may be worse than Marty Ball. I guess Mike realizes that the D is really good esp. the secondary and the DL has improved in getting to the QB. The LBs are all Pro Bowl Caliber. Javon Walker is easily the number one receiver and with a real strong armed and accurate passer would be going to the Pro Bowl one year after tearing up his knee.

I have a hunch that it's painfully obvious to everyone in the organization RIGHT NOW during practices that Cutler is easily the WAY BETTER QB. By this point just judging by his mechanics, talent and his intagibles along with his natural coolness and poise in the pocket that he should be the one starting and can take over the reigns no problem.

The only reason why MS can't pull the plug on Plummer is because of player loyalty. I believe MS is purposely at this point handcuffing Plummer, MS gave him a chance and really let Mike down in the opener. The playbook has been dramatically scaled back since the STL game. MS lost total trust in Plummer, i bet he was shocked that Plummer came out and played so poor after his last showing in the AFCC and having a whole offseason to atleast improve his ability to go through his reads and make smart accurate throws.

MS is trying to make it a point that Cutler is ready to play and take over. He is smart enough to let the team make the decision for him. This type of offense is completely unacceptable for the type of standards Mike has established. Easily more anemic than even the Griese years.

No fire, no attack mentality, the bootleg has gotten old, since teams can take it away by just playing honest and waiting on Plummer to lead the D player to the ball.

MS is a really stubborn man, he knows that his approach may cost us a loss or two but he can't devide the team. Shanahan will replace Plummer before the season is over. Honestly he owes it to his players

Because Cutler isn't as good as Plummer. That's the bottom line. Our Head Coach said it. That Cutler wasn't ready to start in the NFL. I'm sure we are all waiting to shoot our collective loads at the thought of a superstar QB leading this team but you need to stop leading the circle jerk. Premature ejaculation just makes you look bad.

How about a thread for people who enjoy winning and think we have room for improvement?

Let's bookmark this quote. It'll come in handy later.

Clockwork Orange 10-15-2006 09:44 PM

We need a thread for those who'd be happy if this team was 1-4 or 0-5 if it meant that Jay Cutler was starting.
