"People look at records; we look at the tape. They’re a really good Packer team and we’ll have our work cut out for us, no doubt"- John Fox

"There is not one person on that offense that you can just say, ‘Leave him with that guy and don't worry about him"- Champ Bailey


"Our message the whole week is that when we do it right, and we have all 11 guys doing it right, we’ve been a good offense, We’ve gone down, we’ve scored points, we’ve done well in the red zone and we’ve done well on third down. Our problem has been when we can’t get 11 guys to get it right for the whole drive, and we seem to stop ourselves a little bit." –Kyle Orton

"We have the ability. We have the athletes, It's about executing and coming together as three phases and putting the game together and we haven't done that yet"-Eric Decker

"We're going to call the game accordingly, and when I say that, we've got to do what we think is best for our football team, But then again, you also have to understand that you're only going to have so many possessions in a game like this. When you have a talented quarterback like they do, he's going to make his fair share of plays. The longer you can keep them off the field, the better, and if you're fortunate enough to hit some of those plays downfield for big plays and score points early, then you do that early in a series."-Mike McCoy


The memories....

I really think we can keep it close if Champ and Doom play well.

I hope that they dont become too predictable trying to run the ball just to keep Rodgers off the field

We've been in every game this season, and despite how lousy we've looked at times, we're about 5-6 plays away from 3-0.

Will be interesting to see where we really are. Packers are probably the best team in football right now, if it's still a game going into the 4th quarter, I'll be impressed.

Go BRONCOS!!!

This game all depends on how our defense plays. Can we get to Rogers and can our corners hold up?

I'm looking forward to seeing #15 get some reps! Also, I'm playing Lloyd in my fantasy lineup...so, hopefully Orton will grow a pair and go down field at least a couple times today!!!

I am going to say this game all depends on our Offense and its ability to score.

I hope it is on 3rd downs or at the goal line.

I honestly think that those "#15 situations" are going to be a few plays against a very stacked deck just to quiet the boo birds for next week's homecoming next week.
