McGahee was kicking ass early. Hillman, and Ball broke off some good runs when it counted. All you can hope for, is to see improvement from week to week.
Hopefully we can get busy against the Chiefs.
No what was unacceptable was the clock manangent Manning and Co showed not running the game clock down to 5 or so on their last two FG drives. Many times the Broncos ran the play with 10-11 seconds left on the clock and that ended up leaving SD 30 seconds and a on side kick away from trying to tie the game.Watching Hillman run onto the field for the play after a timeout was unacceptable
Easily could have made that last drive a moot point with better clock manangment earlier.
