    We all know that we have improved a great deal on D for both the run and pass rush since our last game in Denver. Also, the secondary had improved a great deal.

    We have serveral important players back or added that didn't play in the regular season game in Denver.

    My question is, has Denver improved since that game? If so, how? Who didn't play for Denver in the first meeting that will be playing this week?

    It's probably worth mentioning that Denver had one of their worse offensive games of the season vs. the Pats. Three 55+ yard plays that led to TDs, and really, that was about it. They do figure to be better on the offensive side of the ball, countered by our improvement defensively.

    First Denver possession: 3 and out. 5 yards
    Second Denver possession: 6 plays. 8 yards
    Third Denver possession: 97 yard drive, including a 72 yard pass.
    Fourth Denver possession: 90 yard drive, including a 55 yard pass.
    Fifth Denver possession: 3 and out. Negative 6 yards.
    Sixth Denver possession: 80 yard drive, including a 68 yard run.

    (This is when the Patriots Q-U-I-T)

    Seventh Denver possession: 74 yard drive.
    Eighth Denver possession: 3 and out. 5 yards.

    (Patriots, led by Patrick Pass, score on offense, picking up the defense)

    Ninth Denver possession: 3 and out. 2 yards.
    Tenth Denver possession: 7 plays. 17 yards.
    Eleventh Denver possession: 5 plays. 19 yards.

    (Patriots driving for possible tying score. David Givens drops an easy pass that would have given Patriots a first down inside Denver's 20.)

    Twelfth Denver possession: 3:38 left on clock. Denver gets two first downs to run out the clock.

    That's 195 yards out of 440 total on 3 plays, courtesy of Duane Starks, Monty Beisel, and Chad Brown. Otherwise, the offense was rather pedestrian.

    What's your axe to grind, other than you obviously don't care for the Broncos.

    Not the right thread, but what do you think of the new KC coach?

    We were missing Bru, Seymour, Dillon, Faulk, Brown. Hawkins wasn't even on the roster. Vrable was playing ILB for the first time. Starks was playing hurt at CB. Mankins got tossed in the first half, punch to the nuts.

    Those are the players I can think of that were missing or playing hurt. Any others?

    They had Champ Bailey playing hurt -were they missing anyone important?

    Damn straight, but we don't cry about it like Brady. We like it. It only motivates us. [​IMG] He can focus on his commercials after Saturday.

    Great post dude. But unfortunately, our offense is predicated on big plays, that's how we score. But we don't need them. For arguments sake, let's say you stop Tatum for busting the 55 yard run, and the safety tackles him after 15 yards, whose to say we dont score on the next play anyway. Its all hypothetical.

    Your team lacks the talent to stop our offense. I really don't have any respect for that defense that has been preying on scrub teams the 2nd half of the season. Hype up the JAX game if you want, guess what, we destroyed them too.

    But your point is well taken, NE has gotta stop the big play, but how, put 8 in the box, and we will shred that weakass secondary.

    Sucks to be you on sat nite. :)
