Pretty bad game. Worst in a long time.

We're we without Harris and Woodyard for most of the game?

A big chunk yes. However, we were still pretty ****ty when they were in it.

We're probably going to rest them this coming week sings the Jags at home are basically a Bye Week.

Indy is when everyone comes back.

They did well in the 2nd. Guys went out and the second half was a disaster. Lots of stuff to fix. Fortunately just getting guys back will fix most of it.

Dave Logan said it was the worst performance in terms of passing yards allowed in Broncos history.

Missing best 4 players. There will be better days. Here's to hoping Wood, Harris, Champ and Von are out there first practice after the bye.

Either the Broncos don't have a guy or guys that can collapse the pocket consistently from the front four or they are not training them right.

I have been mentioning it for weeks that the DL is not CONSISTENTLY beating the offensive line one on one battles in the pass game. I know someone will point out they had 4 sacks or whatever they had but Romo had all day to throw. Its been mentioned that the pass D would be exposed when they play a good passing qb. Thankfully it doesn't really matter when the offense scores 51 but Von is missed.

I know everyone is calling the jags a bye week, but if we are down those 4 guys again, anyone can move it against us

I wouldn't take a desperate and prideful bunch of NFL players lightly... In fact, if I were Jax, I would LOVE to play spoiler...

Good thing Manning won't.... Now the Defense, ugh....

This is the one game we really missed Von, for the most part Romo had all day to throw.

Horrible defensive effort, but what the hell do you expect when you're for the most part playing your second and third string DBs against a passing team?

Add in a Cowboys O that was on fire, and this is pretty much what you'd expect.

I think the loss of Champ was felt as much as Von.

While we're all appalled by the effort our defense gave today, we also need to realize prior to today Romo had completed 72% of his passes, and 8 TD's vs. 1 INT....so it's not like he has been pedestrian this season. He's actually played very well to date.

Consider ourselves lucky our QB and offense is better than Romo and the Cowboys offense

Romo moved around a bit, DRC was looking back at Romo and Bryant turned it up field.

So naturally its bad coaching and not a busted coverage to blame.

The pass rush has been a weakness all season, not just today.

Almost every sack that has been made all season has been due to a coverage situation and not a d-lineman beating his man and making the play. This was made painfully aware as Romo danced through and around our DL while making plays to his targets. It was pretty humiliating.

Our pass rush is horrible, plain and simple. While Von can cetaintly help it, he can't fix it by himself. There isn't a player on this team that has shown he can consistently beat even a 1-1 matchup to get to the QB. Until someone does that, just having Von back won't fix much.

This D is counting on un-proven guys to get the QB in Ayers, Wolfe and Jackson. Phillips was a commodity years ago, but since week 1 has clearly regressed and isn't what he once was. Outside of Miller, it's really a hopeless group IRT getting to the passer.

I think he's the exception to that rule.

They may be going with Chad Henne now unfortunately.

I told him to put "run" in front of defense in the thread title. Ony 52 on the ground again today, sure to keep us at the top of the league in run defense for another week.

I'm just curious, what team has a D line that CONSISTANTLY beats every O line in the league? I mean it's an absurd expectation right?
