    How is it that Denver can afford the guys they have on that team vs the Ocean state job lot jags that Brady has to work with on the Pats.
    Do you think Denver has lot of money under the cap?
    There are 4 teams in the AFC better than the Pats right now and there is no excuse for it.

    If memory serves correctly, Julius Thomas and Demaryius Thomas are still on their rookie deals. There's two high production, low cost contracts alone.

    Your thread is a bit ridiculous, but I have to admit I'm really getting pissed watching this Denver team knowing how they were built with big name FA's which disgusts me.

    The Forehead.
    Ex Patriots Welker and Talib.
    Almost Patriot Emmanuel Sanders.
    TJ Ward, the guy that will likely be aiming for Gronks ankles in a couple weeks.

    It's like they built an anti Patriots squad lol

    Their big money FAs aren't even making the big impacts. Von Miller is also only making $3mm this year as opposed to $9mm next year.

    The 49ers defense is also ravaged by injuries.

    Oh good, I hadn't seen this thread for about a week. Was worrying where I would discuss how much the Pats hate Brady and how Peyton is on the greatest team ever.

    Thanks for making my point. I guess its not so ridiculous after all.
    Why the hell isn't the Pats matching dime for dime for players of Denver's calibur? Especially when you have a spending cap?

    Please point me to their big money offensive weapons.

    Oh there aren't any, whoops. The highest priced receivers are Welker and Sanders, which Bill just brought in LaFell who is giving as good of production for less money.
    Obviously we know the Welker situation, they have Edelman, again on less money and better production.

    Because Denver has mortgaged their future on it. The Patriots haven't. Denver has maxed their cap so they are screwed if someone gets hurt, and they will definitely lose some key players next year.

    Don't think they can retain both Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas.. keeping Von Miller will also be an issue because exercising his 5th year option will be a hefty hit on the cap.

    I think Welker will be the odd man out- his cap hit doubles after this season.

    Manning can't carry a team in the playoffs. The only time he won a SB was when the team carried him.

    Brady all he needs is the defense to just make that one stop.

    The advantage Denver has is it was bad in 2008, 2009, 2010, and average in 2011. They had early round draft picks and multiple first round picks in drafts over the 5 years leading up to Manning arriving. This allowed them to draft elite talents like D Thomas and Von Miller. These are players we are never going to draft because we consistently draft at the end of the round.

    yes, I agree: as of today, Denver looks awesome on both sides of the ball.

    That said, I am planning to wait until Nov and am really not bothered about who is looking great now. Weren't the Bengals thought to be awesome just recently before they played us? And today they were shut down by the Colts.

    Still early IMO to be bothered about style points or how we look now. As Ken mentioned in his Jets post game thread, we played our B game and still beat the Jesters' A game.

    Hopefully we look good in Nov/Dec and in the playoffs - and SB :D - and our play on both sides of the ball is much better than now. :)

    Ya I guess the #17 ranked pass defense is better than the #2 ranked pass defense.
