Default Thread for people who enjoy winning



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.

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?

If i did my math right, that's a 1.7% rate (1 touchdown / 51 drives) and that earns us a medal.

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

He deserved it last week, too.

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!

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.

Because TJ, we wouldn't be winning close games with Cutler.

He'd be prone to make a rookie mistake. Nailbiter games like the ones we've been playing require your QB to calm, cool and confident....and that the team respects him.

Just look at it this way....we're winning games and Jake and the O haven't even began to get untracked. Imagine how well they'll do once they do.

I can remember a few seasons ago when 8-8 was all we had to look forward too...once again we have some on here who think 4-1 with an anemic O is worse than 8-8 with an O led by the NFL's most efficient QB bar none when given protection.

great post.

its amazing to me that SO MANY people here (and around town) dont see it, because it seems obvious to me.

if this offense gets on track (and history tells us they will) and shanahan opens things up, we have a chance to be a very special team.
people should be excited, not full of fear.

What makes you think Shanahan is going to open it up? We are winning playing conservatively. You think Shanahan is going to open up the playbook because Javon isnt happy? Think again. What your seeing now is what your going to get the rest of the year unless we start losing. Its sad to say but if we are winning Shanahan isnt going to risk letting Jake make a mistake to bring it down. Read my sig, if we win a Super Bowl this year it will be because of what i stated there. So all i ask of Jake is DONT TURN THE BALL OVER and we will be fine. Let the Defense do their thing.

shanahan knows that at some point (with SD twice, pitt, indy, etc.) we ARE gonna need to score 20+ points, so at some point (if not this week then against indy) he'll open things up. expand on the gameplan and put the ball in the air more often and downfield more often.

history tells us that we'll have a successful offense.
patience.

Why is it sad to say? We are winning. That is all that matters. I think you feel the same based off some of your other posts and your sig. Just pointing out how the Jake-is-going-to-make-us-lose crowd is affecting everyone elses mentality. I hope I never get to the point where fear of losing keeps me from enjoying winning. If I do get to that point, I guess I will just lay around in bed all day for fear I might get hit by a bus if I go outside.

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...

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

Yeah, you're right. We are winning and we are tied for first place in the division (actually, we are in first because SD has a Conference loss and we don't) but we aren't winning pretty enough so we should give every team in the League a bunch of film to study. We should show them exactly what we are going to do on O so they can get fully prepared for us. That's how you win big games. You've earned a rarity. A smilie from me:

With this defense, "We should be un-defeated", said Tatum Bell.

Now you are trying to tell me that Shanahan is holding back the offense so we don't give them film to study....

bwaa haa haaa haaaaaaaaa

========---------- NEWSFLASH ----------==========

We haven't clinched homefield yet, and we didn't just play a meaningless game vs the Dolphins when we know we are going to see them in 2 weeks.

-------------UPDATE COMING IN OFF THE WIRE -----------

The Denver Broncos have been running the same plays for the last 8 years, except now they are more limited due to Jake the Mistake. The film goes back generations almost now.

You Sir earn ----

The most ridiculous excuse for Jake Plummer award, for stating

"We don't want to give the competition anything to study on film"

Hey clown, answer this one simple question.

What team won the Super Bowl without making the playoffs?

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.

So should we proud we beat the Packers in SBXXXII by a mere 7 points?

Who cares how big the win is? We won the freaking game. Yeah perhaps we should have scored more points...but we didn't. We won the game without scoring 30 points.

The '77 Broncos went to the Super Bowl despite our QB not throwing for 2,000 yards...and only 14 TD's. We went to the SB despite our leading rusher never gaining 500 yards...and our leading receiver had only 29 receptions for the year. But surely they sucked as well, huh?

We're winning games without the offense piling up tons of points......worked for the Ravens...why couldn't it work for us?

Would you be happier losing games 30-28?

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.

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.
