Default I feel better about this game, then either of the first 2 wins

Yeah, yeah, I know a win is a win and it is better then losses. But the big question was, could Denver compete with the best of the best in the NFL? And they answered that. This was a game that Denver could have won, and from a pure entertainment standpoint, was just an awesome game to watch. Everything but the team who won at the end, at least.

The only negative I have is that we were too conservative in the first half, and the plan after Virgil Green went down, was apparently to neuter Peyton Manning.

You're beginning to see signs of how dominant this defense could be, if everyone can stay healthy and we get Trevathan back.

I ****ing hate that we get the bye now, though.

The bye will be good. They can think about this loss for two weeks. Anyone that had questions about our toughness has them answered. That fourth quarter drive was epic. It will probably set the tone for this team from here on out. Trevathan returning will help a ton.

The hardest game of the regular season is over. People need to think about that for a moment.

The D is freakin great!
Look how they went round for round and punched them in the mouth just as hard as they dished out.
Not worried in the least and they will be even better after the bye.
Offense and Gase/Fox are the biggest problem for this team.

I like the fact that this team has yet to play its best football. Last year we came out of the chutes running on all cylinders and faded as the year went on. I'd rather us take our lumps early in the season and get it all together for the end of the season and hopefully the playoffs.

We were in the game at the end . Like the OP , I feel better about this game than the first two. Defense came to play, and Offense finally got going late.

Offense had some key injuries( Green and DT) and non calls by the Refs hurt us the entire game. I am so pissed at Vinovichs crew....they stopped us more than Seattles d. Non call after non call on Seattle D, a few BS calls to extend their drives. They could have been called for PI on half the throws we made...

Coaching Staff is a train wreck, and manning is a p***Y

Why couldn't they attack all game ? Instead give Virgil Green hand offs ok 3rd and long lol

Fox is a joke and the O takes on him and Peyton's play it safe we're scared personality

The D was awesome nothing to blame there tho would been nice to make a
Stop in OT

I was waiting for that. If they don't make it, it's their fault. If they win it, it's despite them. Makes sense to me.

I agree. You don't win the Superbowl in week 3. You can see this team starting to ramp up on defense, and that is what will take us to the Superbowl this year.

I stand my statements about John Fox. He needs to be gone, our best chance at winning this year is without him.

Still a lot to feel good about going into the bye... our best football is definitely in front of us. Having Trevathan back will help a ton.

If today's game didn't answer the question for you, then why don't you just wallow in your own misery for 2 weeks, and we'll find out.

I completely agree! Our team was able to overcome the "loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium" guinness record... I think this team is going to come back strong after the bye week. The defense seems to be jelling more than the offense... Our team has sooooo much potential though....

I don't think there is a more physical team than the Seahawks. Their front four and secondary are just unbelievable! After today's game though, I would pick the Broncos over any other team in the NFL...

You're right, I do know. The coach that only calls the offensive play calls that don't work is the real problem here. The plays that work are because of Gase or Peyton's change at the line. The plays that don't work are really Fox interfering with Peyton doing his job. Got it.

It's,a wonder the Broncos have even won any game, much less the SB.

I agree.

Sucks to lose but going up to the loudest stadium in the league this early in the year, gave them all they could handle.

Denver D is better might be the 2nd best in the AFC behind Cincy and the offense is the best

Denver is the best team in the AFC followed by SD/Cincy
