    I'm so glad that this turnaround was as possible as Andy predicted. I was firmly entrenched in my doubts, and rightly so I still believe. It's a rare thing for a team to pull their backsides out of the collective fire after the 10 week mark, but this team did it. We'll see if they can maintain it this week and beyond.

    I remember arguing with several different Pats... named posters, but I couldn't be sure if it was PatsNutMe or Pats1 or any of the other numerous Pat.... guys. Sorry for the oversight. I should post more often so that the screen names stand out.

    And to BOR - yeah yeah yeah, haha, I'm really not setting up an "I told you so." Really, I'm not. I just still have a little sceptic in me after the hardships of the season. A convincing win over the Broncos would go a long way towards giving me massive confidence for the AFCC. Hell I'll take whatever kind of win, convincing or close. To make four of five AFCC's would be an accomplishment in and of itself, win or lose.

    You know, that's not that great... in 2003, IIRC, we had no runs allowed of 40 or more yards against us all season, and no pass plays longer than 40 yards allowed either... until Carolina torched us twice in the Super Bowl.

    4 50+ plays in 11 games... shows that the Pats defense has definitely dropped a notch or three.

    Without question we've come down a notch. But amazingly after all the injuries and retirements and OC/DCs leaving, we're now -much- higher up on the notch ladder than we were at mid-season. Most teams wouldn't come out of that tailspin. Not only did we come out of it, we are playing nearly as well as in back-to-back SB seasons again. It's incredible to me. And I'm a friggin' nay-sayer.

    I also believe after half-time we put many of our second stringers in...except for the guys like Lynch, Champ, Wilson, Plummer and Anderson.

    Is this complete exhibition of primative football knowledge typical for all Broncos fans, or should I except to find better fans to discuss the matchup with?

    Junior, before you go calling anyone an IDIOT, you should make sure you don't contradict yourself. You went from not being sure that you put subs in (which you didn't other than for Champ) to being positively sure that is what happened.

    You still contradicted yourself junior. No matter how you look at it.

    I don't think the last half of the first game matters for much. We were blown out 28-3 and Denver let up. They could have scored 50. The good news is that first half doesn't matter much either. If Denver fans want to dwell on the first game, that's fine. If their team does, they can dwell on it as they watch us in the Championship game.

    BTW, I don't think our stats against weak teams in the second half matters much either.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    This is the new season. We are healthy. Our newbies are contributing and know the system (Beisel, Hobbs, Hawkins and Brown). Our new team just took apart JAX. Seymour, Dillon and Fauk (and hopefully Bruschi) are back. That makes a HUGE difference in containing Denver's rushing game. This should come down to a battle of quarterbacks and yes, game plans. I am amused that the Denver fans think that Shanny game plans better than bb. bb is the best in the history of the game.

    Will Brady and Belichick do better than Plummer and Shanny? I think the answer is yes!!
