I agree, the Broncos are the best team in the NFL- ever.:scared:
They can win if they want to... I figure BB will go easy on them, seeing as how he's the Santa Claus of the NFL.
I like Orton... but only in comparison with the hate he mostly received from others. He's no TFB.
We'll see. The home field would be the one advantage, I wonder how great that D is - sure it's better than it's been, but come on... Romo, the Bengals... have they stopped Indy yet ?
Aside from last year, the Pats usually have a hard time with Denver. I think they've defeated the Pats more than any other team not in the AFC East (and possibly the Colts who were in the division).
Their funniest post is that our D misses Bruschi. Obviously they haven't been watching any Pats games. The past 3 weeks we played teams that are all playoff contenders and far better than the Broncos. The only reason they think they can beat the Pats is that they are 4-0. WOW!!!! Wish we could have played the Bungles, Browns, Oakland, and Dallas, all of which most likely will not make the playoffs. My prediction is a 38-10 blowout.
I expect the Patriots and Broncos will both be 4 and 1 after next week's game, but I'm not one that doesn't respect the Broncos. They have a bunch of talent, and are playing at home. Can't blame the Denver home fans for overwhelmingly picking their team.
if i was a betting person I would seriously consider laying down some $$ on the Pats...
Ten Points is the MOST points Denver has given up in an game this year.
I always feared playing the donkeys. The reason I feared playing them was their head coach. He is gone and so is my fear. Pats win big.
That's about to change this Sunday. I don't care if McDaniels coached here or not, we're scoring more than ten points.
Hmmmmmmmmmm......Orton or Brady??? I like our chances.
Denver is a damn tough team to beat @ Denver. They have the defense this year to really screw in the nails too. When has our offense struggled? Against tough defenses. Like the game we dropped against the Jets for instance. Can we beat Denver? Yes, if the Pats play at their best. Can the Pats lose this game? Yeah, there's a pretty big chance of that happening too.
Agreed. They haven't been paying attention if they think the Pats secondary is week. Hopefully Orton thinks the same thing and tries to force one against Bodden - Can we say Pick Six?? But naah, I doubt their coach is as overconfident as their fans. Expect a tough battle next week. May the best team win.
This is going to be the game where our defense starts getting turnovers. I'm expecting 4 turnovers, 1 fumble and 3 INTs. Orton is terrible and our D will confuse him. Meriweather will get at least 1 INT.
They should expect Denver to win. The Broncos are 4-0 and coming off a win against a team that was favored against them. Their defense is #1 in the NFL through 4 weeks, the QB hasn't thrown an interception yet, and that team is getting it done even though its offensive line hasn't played as well as it should. I, personally, expect that Orton will throw his first pick(s) of the season in this game, and I think New England will win fairly convincingly, but I can see where the Broncos fans are coming from.
We'll know soon enough.
Actually, if things keep going the way they are, we may not lose another game. What a dumb statement.
By the way, I love the "McD will win because he knows BB tendencies......... Ummmm, does BB not only know what McD knows (because he taught him), but he also knows what he didn't teach him too.
Works both ways.
Damn, and I though we were homers.
BB vs. BBMM!
It's not too early in the week to talk about the Denver game. yesterday is yesterday and we should all be ready to move on. let the crows fans whine about the refs and their receivers who can't catch.
you should read what they are saying at the broncos forum. they are all so confident of a denver victory. the best reasons are:
1. broncos shut down the number 1 rushing D in the league, no problem against the pats.
2. mcdaniels knows the pats tendencies
3. pats secondary is weak, wilfork not 100%, etc.
Pick the winner of the Broncos vs. Patriots game... - Broncos Country Message Boards
the thing that worry me are mcdaniels knowing the pats and the altitude.
if the broncos fans think kyle orton is going to go head to head with brady, lol.
They're right. Their defense will shut us down, and Orton will not make any mistakes to give us points. Dumervil will toss Brady around like a rag doll and make him cry uncle.
Belichick-sensei may have a few lessons for young grasshopper.
Geez, I sure -hope- the Donkeys' fans expect them to win. They're 4-0, playing great defense and the game is at their place. They wouldn't be very good fans if they were predicting defeat in that situation, would they?
Of course this doesn't work both ways, and BB doesn't know McDaniels' tendencies. . . .
Next week may prove, though, that the Pats need to extend/franchise Gostkowski, lest McDaniels try to do some more poaching. . . .
Pats secondary weak??? They have not been paying attention, our once weakness is now our strength.
I completely agree with your sarcasm. 1. Our offense is much more in sync than it was against a Jets defense that is better than the Broncos'. 2. Orton, mistakes or no mistakes, won't march down the field against our defense. 3. If we can contain Ngata, Dumervil won't be much of a problem.
I live in Denver, and for the first time in my life I have started semi-rooting for the Broncos because of McDaniels. In fact, I was more optimistic than anyone I know about the Broncos' season. Most of the Broncos fans I know are completely surprised at the 4-0 start and know that they are not an elite team. Everyone here is aware that the Patriots are a much better team than the Bengals, Browns, Raiders and Cowboys.
Should be an "easier" game than the Ravens, even considering home-field advantage.
Orton is Chad Pennington circa 2004. DBs need to cheat to the inside and dare Orton to throw the out pattern. He's a QB with an exploitable flaw. I'll be very upset if he tears the Pats apart over the middle.
That Broncos D is an enigma. Who knows how good it really is? That being said, that is an awfully tough place to play, and Josh McD's familiarity with our system and personnel is a huge advantage. We will need to be sharp to get the W.
The bigger issue is that McDaniels knows our players' tendencies, strengths and weaknesses. BB only knows about the Donks what he can see on tape.
Penny was better.
The Pats should win this game by a 10-point margin at least.
Denver does have a strong defense. I don't care who you play; 6.5 ppga is damn good. It's their offense that has me 90% sure we'll win. Averaging 19.5 points against the Cowboys, the Browns, the Bengals, and the Raiders is inexcusable. Orton is not a good QB, and Pats secondary is getting verrry good. Their run defense is the Pats' greatest flaw, but I don't foresee much of a problem there, either. So sue me if I'm not worried about Moreno and Buckhalter!
I have no problems with the Broncos fans being confident. After a 4-0 start and having a great defense so far, why wouldn't they? I think if I was a fan of the Broncos, I would be predicting a win this weekend too.
Personally, I think the Pats will win this one since the Pats are considerably better than any team they have faced thus far.
Denver fans ALWAYS talk the talk whether or not the team can walk the walk, so it doesn't surprise me in the least that they're already flappin' their gums. But honestly, Dallas is the only serious team they've played so far this year. And they could stand to be reminded the only reason they beat the Bungles was that last-second fluke play.
I wouldn't say Dallas won't make the playoffs, but I think they made some pretty boneheaded decisions yesterday. Belichick knows a little more about the game than Wade Phillips, me thinks.
What situation would you rather have?
Denver where McDaniels knows everything about the Pats offense.
NE where BB knows everything that he ever taught McDaniels about football.
This is going to be a tough game becuase McDaniels may try to outthink himself. I still will go with if BB knows everything about your offense, you are going to have a tough time.
The key to this game will be stopping Knowshon Moreno, make Orton throw (alot) and double cover Marshall.
This is still the Denver team that could not stop anyone from running on them last year (granted they have moved around and switched to a 3-4) but in the end they have not introduced that much new talent to the defense.
