  • Amazing stat on our offense

    Just looked back at all the Broncos drives going back to the 4th quarter of the Houston game. Not counting possessions where we had to kneel down:

    23 Total Possessions

    19 ended with a touchdown or field goal

    1 was the “fumble” by Julius Thomas against the Chargers that was either down or incomplete

    1 was the interception in the back of the end zone against the Chargers off the weird bounce after Decker tripped on the punt

    1 was a Prater missed field goal against the Chargers

    1 punt. Against NE on our first possession after we had crossed midfield

    So our last 23 possessions we have crossed midfield and punted 1 time.

    Prater. Cut him. Don't need him.

      Still boggles my mind that he kicked the record breaker this year.

        That is ridiculously impressive.

        GO BRONCOS!

          It should also be mentioned that Prater's miss was on a long kick in heavy wind. That ball hooked like crazy.

            Also, I forgot to mention I didn't count the second half against Oakland when Osweiller was in

              None of us want to count those.

                I'll tell you what, if we produce another 0 or 1 punt performance, I have a hard time imagining how the Broncos lose the game. Seriously though, the 60 some yards per drive against NE was epic but shouldn't be counted on. I believe that was the highest average yardage gained per drive in any postseason game in NFL history.

                Unfortunately, it seems hubristic to think we can suddenly rack the league's best D. More likely scenario is that we come back to earth a little and maybe punt on 4 of 10 possessions. I hope I'm wrong about that but that feels most likely to me. Hopefully we account for this by playing a bit faster and not relying on scoring every possession.

                Also, more TDs please! Seriously, that 19 of 23 stat is awesome but our TD percentage has also taken a hit during that time. I want to see Prater kicking for 1 point only all game please.

                  Agree.

                  I really think it's as simple as saying if we don't turn it over or allow big special teams plays we win. Even if our offense is average but punting at the worst and putting them on their own 25 I just don't see how they get above 20 points. And that might be high. Could be more like 13-17

                    The law of averages alone says we likely will punt more. I still don't think Seattle's defense will have much success stopping our offense. Schematically they are just too vanilla to give Manning trouble.

                      I sure hope you're right but I have to say, after rewatching the AFCCG, I'm a little worried about the athleticism of their D. So many passes in that game made it by a hair against NE DBs that just weren't up to the task of making the play. Looking at several of those tight completions, it occurred to me that individual standout performances could have capitalized. Hopefully Sherman's 6' 3" length doesn't flip the script and turn those close completions into INTs through better execution and pure athleticism.

                        Here is a much much better stat about Denver's offense.

                          Amazed at the number of Broncos fans that still act like the Broncos aren't capable of winning the SB

                            Why would people think that? They have essentially a 50/50 chance, thereby they are inheritly "capable".

                            Where do you consort with such defeatists?
