    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?

    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. :)

    Champ played the first half and left the 2nd half because he was injured

    this allowed your offense to comeback and try to tie it

    besides Bailey we didnt have anyone injured

    Maybe Courtney Brown but i think he was ok.


    where the Broncos have improved after week 6 is 4th quater performance

    before we let teams come back in the game now we close games out

    Our running game has dropped a little bit thanks to injuires to Mike Anderson and Tatum Bell

    But both of them will be Ready for the Pats comeing this saturday

    and Kcvet is the most retarded poster on this board

    i see him on the denverbroncos.com site and all he does is post retarded crap all day

    all he goes back to is talking about how we lost to the Cheifs by 4 points

    he doesnt remember we blew them out 30 to 10 in Denver on Monday Night Football

    Man, a couple of these trolls just dont go away, do they? Here, stated plainly once, and for all trolls to sit and digest, and dont bother with your assinine responses: The Pats run D has been an all time NFL best when the regulars have been playing for the last 6+ weeks. Period. Yeah, some of the competition was weak. But many of their running games weren't.
    BB. ALWAYS eliminates what you do best. ALWAYS. I dont say this with Bravado or to incite comment. I am simply stating fact, so you can go back to those caves in the Co. hills from whence you came. The Broncos are a good team. The best we have faced to date. But the Pats are gonna hold your running game to under 100 yds. The D is then gonna make the Snake beat us himself. Count on this one thing: No Way NO How is the Broncos' offense gonna score more than 21 points against this D. Aint Gonna Happen. I'll be shocked if they score 17 Does that guarantee a Pats win? No. We are gonna find a hard time moving the ball against you too. Look for a low scoring, physical, defensive game. And PLEASE, stop trying to even pretend that the moron on your sideline can even shine BB's shoes. BB has broken Vince Lombardi's playoff record. Until your rain-man can say the same, dont embarass yourself with coaching comments.

    I see it like this. Broncos and Pats are both tough teams who are equally well coached and will be ready to play. As a Bronco fan, I would be a liar if I said I wasn't worried. It should be a great game. As for the KC fan, go find another grieving KC fan who can give you a big warm hug. Maybe you could even watch the monday night Denver/ KC game again. That always helps me. I'm only saying this because I care.

    maybe your D looks so good because you played the Jets twice? and that cant Run?

    oh thats right

    you did play Kansas City

    and you got tail your ran all over

    Broncos will have 125+ yards rushing

    we'll have a 17 point lead by the end of the 3rd Q and starting running all day in the 4th and end up winning by 17

    Your coach doesnt come close to Mike Shanahan when coaching offense and making offensive gameplans and playcalls

    Of course not. Any coach in the NFL can rack of 28 against the Bucs' D, or 42 against the #1-rated Steelers D in the playoffs last year after getting our asses handed to us earlier in the season.

    Our offensive gameplans have propelled our offense, this year (without Weis), into I believe the top 5 in the league, despite dealing with injuries all the way through, including losing our top 2 linemen, starting 2 rookies because of that, losing our 2nd and 3rd WRs for a combined 7 games, losing our top 4 RBs to a combined 28 games or so, and having a battered defense that couldn't stop **** earlier in the season.
