A little late for that NFL Network. It looks like it's about to be 28 to nothing.

This makes me feel a tiny bit better about the Broncos winning the preseason game against the Seahawks. Just a tiny bit.

31-0 Dang. Cutler with a redzone interception. I live in Illinois, and all everyone is talking about is how good Cutler has looked in TC and Pre Season and how big of a season he is going to have. I know its preseason and vanilla packages and all that. But he still throws off his back foot almost every throw, and just relies on pure arm strength most of the time. I don't see much in terms of anticipation throws, its all just zipping it in there when the receiver breaks open and hope they catch it and make a play.

He is who we thought he was I guess haha

Maybe, maybe not. Doesn't matter. Doesn't really change the fact that they look lost with whatever they are trying to do, preseason or not.

It's a dirty team. The refs let them play that way, now they're trying to cover their asses by throwing 30 flags a game for illegal contact.

Nice try losers.

I read that the Seahawks had one penalty called against them in the first half tonight. They had three in the first half last week against the Chargers. And they had fewer penalties called against them than the Broncos in week one.

There was an article a while back that said Carroll is having his team practicing extensively to play within the new rule parameters while hitting a hard as legal. I thought that was smart.

They got away with a lot of illegal contact last week in the Charger game.

Not really sure how that works since it seems like you look at a WR now and get flagged. Seems to happen to all the other teams this pre-season so far.

Dont see the rule changes really hurting Seattle that much.

They'll still play their physical brand of football, mauling WR's at the LOS all game and still wont get called for it.

Unfortunately, it's true.

Ian Rapoport@RapSheet The belief is that #Packers NT BJ Raji tore his bicep last night, sources say. Tests will show whether it's fully or partially torn.

This is why the Broncos Defense needs to continue to force Defensive aggression at every point possible. They should be able to overcome the penalties vs. lesser teams. But when playing NE and Seattle, the refs will be forced to call it fairly.

Ramming your helmet into a blind defenseless WR's helmet after running at full speed for 40 yards... in the preseason.

Only the Seahawks.

Don't look for the refs to help other teams beat Seattle. Offenses need to man up. Have your team run the football then their "mauling WR's at the LOS"won't help them. Anyway the Broncos were some how able to overcome it in pre season.

I certainly hope Chicago wasn't using a blind receiver although that would explain a lot. Only Seattle makes illegal hits that just made me laugh.
