So you want me to hack on our defense, the only reason why we've got 5 wins? That's awesome. We lose our first game of the year because of underperformance by our defense, and Popps, Shack and Co are shoving women and children out of the way on their way to the life boats.

Our defense absolutely let us down yesterday. But it wasn't a disaster by a long shot. If we don't turnover the ball, or manage one more stop, we walk out of that game with a win. We got beat by a good team with a great quarterback, and we were in it until the end.

I don't know where anybody got the idea that we're going to beat the Colts every time we face them. We'd beat that team maybe 50% of the time right now. They're not indestructable. We'll have another shot at them.

And tips would be msot appreciated by you or anyone else that knows that system while I'm still on this ariport business lounge computer. Thansk t owhomever has thte scoop on how to find the game!

Also Its not that Darrent isnt necessarily 'good enough', I think he is or atleast is on his way to being a great atheletic corner, but its that he is TOO SMALL!

He can handle most run of the mill and even some decent WR with the typical QB but the taller and bigger guys give him trouble and with an accurate QB its tough on anyone and until he domiantes a few of those he will continue to be picked on mercilessly.
The kicker is having a faste enough conncetion... 1 megabit is no problem... less works, but is annoying.

check out this threat on tenyardtorrents.com http://forums.tenyardtorrents.com/viewtopic.php?id=157

Streamtvnow is usually posts around 8 games a sunday (usually broncos games) but you have to pay 3 euros a month and i dont think they are accepting new members right now.

sopcast is almost guarenteed to have streamed broncos games for free. check out this the link listed above and this site for the specific channel it will be broadcasted on. (you select it after you have dled and installed the program) http://streamednfl.blogspot.com/

post or send me a pm if you need more help.

I have a good feeling we'll get a w next week.

Coming from one of the most chastized people on the board, you'd be the expert in the field.

Any tips on how to cope? Other than sending endless whiny PMs. I don't want to stoop THAT low.

Gosh, it just took a good ass-whooping to get you in a good mood about the team.

As for "we were one away."

We had 3 different times to protect a lead or a tie after the early forced fumble.

Did we stop them one time in the second half?

Fantasy land: "We didn't stop them all day, but had we not turned the ball over in the 2nd quarter, we would have suddenly stopped them the rest of the day.
Got it ?
You may well be right Popps, though I hope not, and the next 4 or five games will likely determine if you are. But if so, and we are shackled with a defense that will get shreaded in the playoffs and a hot and cold offense, you've just made the best argument yet for making best use of our time with the new kid! :-)

Unless folks just want to collect fantasy points and bragging rights about 'their guy' whoemever that may be.

Seriously though, JAke will be the starter unless your point is proven beyond any doubt in the next several games.

They just called my flight ... over and out and Aloha.

Heres hoping for an 8-2 record when I get back!

You could just hide behind Peyton Manning. I think that you might be able to convince yourself that everything is alright from behind his melon.

at home, when our offense finally plays good against them, yes, I do expect us to win, but once again

our D takes a big ole crap all over the field when we play a good offense

I think you went in with some goofy expectations. The game played out about how I thought it would. I didn't expect we'd hold them to less than 20 points. The game was about what I thought it would be, including the loss (hence, I picked the Colts in pick'em this week).

Again, our defense is the only reason this team has 5 wins at this point. Losing against the Colts this week is hardly the end of the world.

That is also my thoughts right now. Maybe I'll relax a little bit as I read on and see what others have to say. Right now the drumbeat on my mind is - "32 for 39, 32 for 39. 28 points in the 2nd half. 28 points in the 2nd half. Scored on every drive in the second half. Scored on every drive in the 2nd half."

you expected Payaton to only miss 7 passes (about 4 of them drops) and their running game to work as well?

if the Titans can hold Payaton under 20 points, why can't we..ya know, if our D is so great and all

AHA! A few posts down, I see someone post that stops that maddening drumbeat a little bit. Man, if the D could have just come up with the few opportunities given them, or not slipped up on a couple of plays, bingo! Another win. Dammit! Got-freaking-dammit! It was so close! I was furious when DW got beat for Indy's last TD, but not because he got beat, but because he closed fast after the stop and go, and all he had to do is turn his head, and he could have intercepted that pass, would have been the play of the game.

Oh yeah, this thread is about Peyton. Good QB. Real good. Gotta hand him some credit. A very good O, period.

....not to mention some have the front 7 that can beat him, and we evidamndently don't.

Anyone else find it ironic that the one time Jake plays good and we score 30 plus, we lose? I wonder how a 13-3 victory would have felt today?

I've never seen a more accurate QB or a QB that is better at reading D's. He has the same title now as Elway had early is that he can't win the big one. Manning has several years ahead of him to try and win won and as much as I want him to break every passing record known to man and never even reach the SB, I think he will win one at some point or another.

Think about it, Jake and the O scored twice their per game average, but what good did it do when our D gave up 4 times their per game average?

Yea, he looked awesome out there. I get tired of hearing about him but i can appreciate the hard work he puts in to get in sync with his receivers and his commercials make me laugh my ass off. Overall, he is a good guy and a HOF Qb.

I'm really suprised TJ hasn't posted something to the tune of how our O cost us the game by going 3 and out once or twice.

I, for one, would be ecstatic. We would have the #1 seed in the AFC if the season ended today. However, that wouldn't do for people on the Mane in love with QB stats...

When that started happening it is our D's responsibility to make adjustemnts, give Darrent some help, and stop the bleeding.

It was obvious he wasn't up to the task, why we left him all by himself for teh entire second half is beyond me. We should have done something to stop that.
During Denver's tieing field goal drive, maybe Denver can run the clock all the way down to tie or take the lead with a TD, and I see a sideline shot of Manning, and he's sitting on the bench, flipping through the Polaroids, flipping through the Polaroids. Never looks up. Total concentration. Very impressive. This guy has to be knocked silly to avoid a 300 yd game and at least one TD pass.

Duuuuuude! Chill out. We lost! Maybe you didn't get the memo.

See, had we won... this would be a day of great sorrow around here. But, we failed a test we've been preparing for (for three years) miserably.


Don't bog yourself down with those details from the game. We lost, and that's what's important... so keep your head up.

Here...... this will help:
