Default Has McDaniels lost his touch?

Already?

His latest moves have been... awful.

Ty Law is not the answer.
Berger is possibly the worst punter I've ever seen.

It's funny... if you just wait long enough, the threads get progressively worse as the night goes on.

Maybe it's booze.



Law actually had a decent game.

Champ had a rough one. DJ was awful. Elvis had one sack, but could have been more active.


Still, this loss is on the offense. Orton had his first bad game and wasn't helped out by a struggling line/running game.

Yep, I was going to say that if anyone got abused in the game, it was Champ. I'm starting to think that our opponents are choosing him over Goodman. Just watching the game, very few passes were thrown Goodman's way. Champ is going to get his soon enough though, you can count on that.

Maybe McDaniels watched Major League too many times. Lou Brown said at the start of the season that he wanted to give the media a 'sh.t burger' to eat. Well McDaniels has certainly served up a 'sh.t Berger'.

I think McDaniels is fine. When you have a piece of coal as your QB, instead of a diamond, this is what happens when you run into a great defense/QB. You get beat soundly and you look pathetic in the process.

I heard he lost his touch during the bye week. He took the family for a ride on the light rail. After that, the "touch" was gone.

Berger sucks. But Ty Law played pretty well out there.

If you were going to criticize McDaniels, you might have thought to have something worth discussing, like going to the play action late in the game as though he had been setting it up all game long. At least there's some traction in that. But Law? That's just weak, weak stuff.

Law played great considering the situation he was thrust into. He'll only get better as he learns the defense.

Honestly, both the berger and Law moves should of been used on the bye week.

Law didn't get off the plane till friday.

Hang in there, man.

We knew the trolls like Mock and the Jay-Gays would be celebrating losses. It's just how it's going to be from here-out.


We're going to have the last laugh, and these trolls will get run off the board.


There was a time when Raiders fans used to troll this board. Honestly. I'm sure you remember. Now, they're a distant memory.

These ex-Broncos fans will eventually follow suit as we improve and Cutler continues his path to failure.


Six wins, two losses. I'll take that kind of start every season.

Yeah Yah yeah Popps.

The offense scored 3 points, the D 7 and saved 14.

The score would of been 35-3 without the D.

He hasn't lost his touch. He has gone up against two very good teams in consecutive weeks. He has an approach that he feels will win each week. Sometimes you have to look at your personnel and face the music. We tried to beat both the Ravens and Steelers at their own game and we got our buts handed to us for trying it. We are a lot more physical than we have been in year's past. That being said, we still aren't in the same league as teams like the Ravens and Steelers.

Some fans need to understand that coming into this season we were expected to win 3-6 games. That isn't because we have superior talent and a poor coach... more like, a good coach with inferior talent. If you've listened to Mediator 12 over the years you know that scheme in the first part of the season can overcome some talent deficiencies. We're at that point of the season when teams start to figure out what everyone else is doing and take advantage, and the teams with more talent start to shine through.

I'm ready to face the music and realize exactly what this team is. Capable of beating anyone in the AFC West but not nearly ready to play with the big boys. In fact, ask yourself this question. If we played the Pats, Bengals, Cowboys, or Chargers again... will we beat them? Chargers maybe, the others no. More talent is needed.

And it wasn't Law that was getting torched all night, it was Champ, Law, and Goodman. The 2nd TD was b/c of the line not getting pressure (due to holding I realize).

Orton is a big part of why the running game is struggling. Like it or not, Cutler's big arm makes the defense defend the whole field. Prior to Cutler replacing Plummer, it was the same complaints about the running game struggling but then once they put Cutler in, the running game performed better because even though he was a rookie, teams knew he could punish them with his arm if they didnt defend the whole field.

With the running game, its two problems. No threat to stiretch the field in the passing game and either Hamilton needing to be replaced or insisting on running plays that dont fit the personnel.

Mcd calls short pases even if it doesn't work..that's his problem.
I believe he doesn't trust Orton.

He relies heavily on Defense to win the games for us.

Mcd should understand that the defense will be tired if the offense doesnt move the ball.

The biggest issue I have with the plays is with all the talk of Royal's speed, yet they seem to consistently have him run 5 yard pass patterns.

The o-line has stunk 2 games in a row.

Berger is so worried about punting the ball high, but is rarely getting any distance. I'd be fine with 40 yard punts as long as they was never a return.
