Default Broncos Scoring offense

19th--

http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorysta...G&d-447263-n=1

We are moving the ball fairly well based upon our 9th overall ranking--but that is due largely to our RUNNING GAME--148 yards per game which is 4th--yet our passing game is only 17th--with Eddie Royal, Marshall, Gaffney, Stokely, Scheffler and the pass catching abilities of Buckhalter and McD's system--that is unacceptable--we know what these players are capable of given a competent QB------After all--wasn't McD an offensive genius? Wasn't the supporting cast going to elevate Orton?

Aikman alluded to our struggles on offense yesterday in the telecast--asking the question--this was the #2 offense in the league last year in yards--yet we struggle to move the ball--the rest of the cast has remained mostly the same--the main difference--Kyle Orton.........And I agree.

Wow.....only 3 spots lower than all last year. Not bad, considering an entirely new system.

Don't you get the feeling that this offense will pick up steam each week and be at its best during the homestretch (as opposed to last year)? If we finish up the same in scoring offense as last year I will be very disappointed.

It takes time for an offense to fully jell (or is it gel, I get confused?). The passing game is a work in progress.

That being said, Moreno need to be running the ball more to the outside. Use Hillis to get the tough inside yards and use Hillis and Jordon late when they have fresh legs.

The Buckhalter injury REALLY concerns me--he is SOO dangerous in the passing game in addition to having an fantastic YPC average--hopefully his ankle heels quickly--I have yet to hear a formal report on it--anyone?

Don't forget to consider in the fact that our turnovers are way down as opposed to last year. We're not wasting long drives or giving the enemy any freebies.......

You know, it was the perfect time for a good ole food jacking. Sometimes you just don't have the time for a good breakfast. So for me this morning, it was stealing a bowl of Captain Crunch (with Crunch Berries of course). Love them things.

I cant stand the guy either, but he is 4-0 as Broncos starter. Just have to live with him and hope he gets better and be happy that we are 4-0 and hope like hell that he can be 5-0 as our starter.

Better than 20-29, 2 TDs and 243 yards passing with 0 interceptions and the best 4th quarter QB rating in the league you mean?

Sure, that's great, when he gets better than that Denver will be unstoppable.

Give me a break--what were the kool aid drinkers talking about this off-season--Orton struggled because of the poor supporting cast in Chicago--PLUS he has McD now who turned Cassel into the 60 million dollar man! NO ONE figured that we would have the #1 scoring defense in football-and I bet many of you didn't think that Orton would have such a dramatic effect on our pts/ game(-4 points) or passing game(-62 yards)

If your going to jack a thread, boob jacking is the only real solution. Food jacking just doesn't do it for me...

So what you are REALLY saying is that Nolan is THRICE the teacher and Coach that McD is being that the entirely NEW DEFENSE IS FUNCTIONING AS #1 OVERALL IN SCORING? IS that what you meant to write?
