It's a physiologic impossibility.... The best they can do is go right to the stadium, fill their oxygen tanks and pray they don't get behind to far....

They are getting guys back from injury, playing here is a clear advantage...

Last time we played, we ALLOWED them to get 14 points in garbage time (up 31-3 at the time), and our offense backed off the gas in the 4th quarter, ... this time I think we win 27-3.

One thing that you generally hear during the games is how fast our defense is...we seem to have a lot of guys around the ball.

Points allowed - Broncos 289 (18.0) Ravens 344 (21.5)

Average yards per play - Broncos 4.6 Ravens 5.2

Net yards per pass attempt - Broncos 5.2 Ravens 6.1

Average yards per rushing attempt - Broncos 3.6 Ravens 4.0

Pass completion % allowed - Broncos 57.4% Ravens 59.9%

Rushing TD's allowed - Broncos 5 Ravens 15

Passing TD's allowed - Broncos 25 Ravens 15

Sack pct. - Broncos 8.5% of passing plays Ravens 6.2%


Other than passing TD's allowed the Broncos lead in virtually every defensive statistical category that matters.....protect the ball and get a turnover or two and we win by 10+

The Raven smack now is just like our Roc Alexander at corner teams when going into Indy for a playoff game against you know who!!! :-)

We also fell back on and resorted to the same kind of weak 'whistling past the graveyard' smack 'hoping' for a miracle with claims we would 'shock the world' with one implausible 'what if' scenario after another.

The clear facts are these:

1. Unlike in most of the past 12 to 13 years period whenever we had to face the Ravens, the Broncos are clearly the superior team in ALL three phases of the game!

2. We cleaned their clock at their house three or so weeks ago when they had their #2 spot riding on the line and desparately were trying to break their losing streak. That victory was much more lopsided than even the score suggested as we did our typical fourth quarter put on the brakes and run out the clock prevent defense scheme which Foxy likes to resort to in the regular season when we get a big enough lead by the last quarter and not only did that slow down our scoring machine considerably, but allowed them to rack up their misleading 14 points in junk time as if Flake-O had a ghost of a chance pulling that off if we were playing for keeps still in the 4th quarter!

3. The Ray Ray Retirement Mojo emotional boost will have disspated entirely within 24 hours from now, if not sooner. The air is out of that bag for good. Congrats to Ray for a well deserved bon voyage at his house for the last 17 years! Now its time to light his viking ship on fire and push his remains out to sea toward the Valhalla of an ESPN broadcast career from the south gate of Sports Authority field next Saturday!

Just ask the Pagano-comeback inspired Colts who shocked the listless Texans in Colt stadium how well their emotional mojo traveled this week!?

4. The Ravens are struting around crowing about how much they now want Manning and the Broncos based on finally ... by the 4th quarter ... pulling ahead of a truly poor team with a very good young QB and no Oline to speak of and a very porous Defense with a few opportunistic players. A Colts D whose best cornerback out there today was Cassius Vaughn, who is a decent journeyman back up, but could not make our 53 man roster and was traded to said Colts before the season started!!

If Andrew Luck had a semblance of a real NFL O-line that could even marginally protect him and some WRs that could actually catch the balls right in their hands it is very likely the Colts may well have won this game, even with their sucky pass defense today!

5. The Ravens will find a well rested up and tuned up Manning/Von-Doom and Company who have thoroughly dissected the Ravens battle plans and are the polar opposite of the rookie QB and marginal defense they faced today!

Enough said, the only way in a very blue moon that the Ravens do somehow upset us, as said above by others, will ONLY be because of what we failed to do and not because of anything they did to us as the better team, as was so often the case in prior Bronco/Ravens games over the last decade.

Its Pay back time! :-))

To anyone saying that it's on us if we lose next week...I fully agree. As number one seed, you only lose if you choke or are a fraud. Or Atlanta.

What worries me is that exact possibility of a choke. We've been off, they got their **** together...ergo, we better ****ing bring it.

Baltimore is actually the team I was hoping to avoid

They have more talent than the Colts and Bengals
And the Texans have just looked awful the past month

I still think we should win, but I would of really preferred Cinci or Indy

Not worried about Baltimore. They don't have the OTs to stop our rush, and they don't have the WRs or QB to beat our coverage. On defense, they just aren't good enough. Not in the defensive backfield, not at LB, and not on the line. Moreno will run for a hundred again, and Manning will do whatever is required of him to win. Last time, he barely had to do anything.

They will try and pound Ray Rice 30 times this game. That will be their big adustment. We just have to stop him.

Ravens looked less than spectacular for 3 quarters against an average Colts team at home. It'll prolly be a closer game than last time but we should still win by 10/13 points.

The Ravens absolutely abused Cassius Vaughn today. Their entire offense was predicated on exploiting the Colts two glaring weaknesses at corner. Everything was over the top and to the sideline.

You don't have that luxury against the Broncos. I don't think they can score 10 (unless they pick up some garbage time points).

Defensively Lewis is still incredibly instinctual, but he's slow and his right arm doesn't appear to even work. I fully expect our tight-ends to wreak havoc over the middle and that's going to open up space for us to run and take some chances over the top.

We're going to win this easily.

Snow doesn't favor Rice's running style.

Of course they got what they wanted, because after the Texans beat the Bengals yesterday, the only two paths available was go to Denver or go home. This is a bunch of talk, that is all it is.

Don't forget the Colts racked up 419 yards on offense against these guys in their house. I hope our guys come out ready to open up a can of whoop ass!

There is no way this team gets over confident. They are rested, but focused. They are healthy. They are playing at home, at altitude. Against a team we already beat down very easily. Even if their defense plays better, THEY won't score more than 17 again - I think they score LESS this time around. And if we play a subpar game and score I dunno.. only 24 or something.. it won't matter, it will be a win.

No way we lose this if we play smart. And don't put Trinton out unless they are kicking from their 10. The only thing that could kill us is turnovers.

NO Holiday - NO Ball - no turnovers mean we win.

The Ravens are worried about Peyton? They should worry about the defense that held Ray Rice to 38 yards.

It's because Flacid and his limp 76 QB rating on the road isn't scaring anyone.

The key to me to this game is getting after Flacco.
And with Von and Elvis and the boys i am not worried at all.
Also need to keep a guy on Rice bacause thats flacco s safety valve.

Unless something drastic changes between then and now, Denver looks like it's going to be very dry and mild over the next 10 days.
