Wasn't pretty til the last bit, but he got it done. LOL at Cincy!
Mav just threw up in his mouth...
That was really something. Stokley still a heady player.
I didn't watch the entire game, but what was good for McDaniels is that his defense is worlds better than the Broncos defense last year (granted not saying much) and McDaniels took a play out of the Belichick handbook knowing the rules better than anyone else and getting his 18 seconds back.
Congrats Josh! They got a ways to go before they are going to be good, but they should be considerably better than most expect.
Who knows, maybe he'll be the first Belichick 'disciple' that actually paid attention to what Belichick taught him.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but why are Pats fans celebrating a Denver Bronco's win? To me, the Broncos are like one of those mass-murders in a slasher moving. Kill him and he keeps coming back -- cue dun-dun-DUN-dun music -- to kill again.
Personally, I never want to see a Broncos win. It's like celebrating a Colts win to me.
I'm happy for Josh, not thee Broncos. Since I don't think the Broncos will be making the playoffs, we can feel good for McDaniels. People rooted for Crennel, but not the Browns once he left. If the Broncos were a serious playoff threat, I would change my stance.
I saw the play as it happened, luckiest play of the week, possibly the rest of the season.
The Broncos had no business winning that game, but sometimes all you need is luck. Unfortunately, you can't be lucky all the time.
Cowher commented in the post-game that it was stupid to call two straight deep sideline passes to Marshall (eerily similar to the 07 Superbowl ending drive) instead of taking advantage of the deep open middle, but that being lucky is just as good.
Good win for the Broncos, I hope they make the playoffs in their division.
You have to understand that Josh McDaniels is beloved by the offensive stat whores here. They're Colts fans in Pats clothing, who love the guy because of all the sexy stats the offense put up the past few years.
Well if the offense did not score all of those points the past few years where would this team be?
38 seconds and 1 timeout left.
Look, I'm just not a fan of finesse offense or finesse football teams in general. Go root for the Colts if that's what you like. Give me a physical team that wins 17-14 every week based on offensive guile over brute repetitive plays based on superior talent.
The Patriot defenses in 2006 and 2007 were top 5 defenses, by the way. Look at their avg points given up and other measures.
Congrats to Josh McD
Ocho and company can't believe their cursed existance
I'm glad for Josh - but really
right now I need to channel all energies into helping the Redskins :yeeha: beat the NY Foosball Giants. opcorn:
Because I absolutely hate the Chargers. Well, I dislike their fans more than the team. The Chargers don't really have any competition in the west this year, so any victory by one of their opponents is fine with me. Hmm.. you think BB hates the Chargers too and that why he is stocking up all the other teams in the west with former Patriots.
Except for Woody Woodless Johnson I doubt Belichick hates anyone.
Brad Childress says "gulp."
i nearly fell out of my chair during that play. what was Cincy thinking not having someone all the way back in that situation? oops, just realized that I put "Cincy" and "thinking" in the same sentence; my bad.
congrats to Josh. just don't win enough that you're in the hunt for the playoffs because then we'll have to kill you.
that was significant. something which wont be talked about
From someone who didn't see the 18 second thing can someone exlpain what happened?
I don't know how great the 2007 defense really was. Maybe being ahead 52-7 at half time might have made life a little easier on our D, y'think? And for what it's worth, I prefer the gutsy grind 'em out victories, too. But I'll take a W any way we can get it.
