» Good/Bad Week 3

Sep 22, 2014 - 8:21 AM - by BroncoWave
Alright everyone, what would you say the good and the bad were this week? Here's mine.

Good:

Sanders. This guy just produces week after week after week. He looks well on his way to the pro bowl.

Welker. Made some nice plays in his first game back. It's great to have him back in our offense.

DT. This is the one I expect to get some flak for since many people say he was a no-show. I honestly believe he was injured, and what he did on that last drive to keep us in this game earns him a spot in the good column IMO. He was clutch.

Pass rush. Really pleased with the pass rush today. Wilson is so damn good it's pretty much impossible to contain him, but our guys were getting there consistently. Von Miller is back.

Ward. Guy continues to make plays every week.

Run defense. I thought we did a really nice job of keeping Lynch bottled up. He made some nice runs here and there, but I think we defended him about as well as you could have hoped.

Manning. Was he off on a few throws? Yeah, but he still wound up with over 300 yds and 2 TD. That is no small feat against this defense.

McManus. Made all of his kicks and did not allow Harvin to return a KO. He did his job. More on him later.

Bad:

That nullified offside call. I'm not being hyperbolic when I say that is the worst call I have ever seen in an NFL game. Whatever ref overruled that offside call should be fined and suspended. That was just flat out horrible.

Running game. Not much to be said here. Just completely and totally ineffective. This is a pretty major area of concern.

Play calling. I'm seriously sick of our draw plays up the middle on second and third and long. The next time that works this season will be the first. Like, what are we trying to accomplish with that play? Yeah the... [Read More]

» What the 'Hawks fans are saying...

Sep 22, 2014 - 12:28 AM - by aberdien
I took a venture over to the Seahawks message boards.

http://www.seahawks.net/viewtopic.ph...259f8a1ad9b036

The emotion of this game went from nervous doubt, to supreme confidence, to lingering doubt, to outright fear, to elation of near certain victory (Chancellor pick), to horror, to victorious triumph.

Peyton Manning very nearly brought his team back to victory in one of the guttiest performances of his career, and yet as quickly as the Broncos roared back into the game, Wilson and Lynch slammed that door shut. For as heroic as Manning was, he'll probably not sleep a wink tonight while muttering to himself "tails never fails."

And this happened between the best two teams in the NFL! It was only the sixth time ever that a SB duo met again the next season. And it was also the best game of the weekend.

Now that's going into the bye with style. Now all we have to do is wonder if Arizona can voodoo their way to 16-0.

I have to take my hat off to the Broncos. They had the right kind of gameplan for this game. They sold out to defend the short play, and they played physical. No fake-tough-guy dirty play in this one. Denver wants to be a legitimate tough team, and they showed that they've made real strides towards being a tough team in this game. They willingly let this game turn into a fistfight, and they damn near won it anyway. In our house. That's impressive.

John Fox probably had the worst performance of his career in XLVIII, but he had a good gameplan for Denver this time and his (or Adam Gase's) route running bag of tricks on the final drive

» Run Game

Sep 21, 2014 - 10:40 PM - by silkamilkamonico
We heard all offseason about how much better the RB's and run game will be.

Does anyone have any thoughts that the lack of run game is based on our type of offense? If a pass play is called and the linemen get in their stance to pass and then an audible run is called is that hard for a linemen to adjust from a pass blocking stance to a run blocking stance? I don't know anything about the intricate technique's of oline blocking but it seems to me in watching Manning play throughout his career he has never really had even an average run game, other than Edgerrin James. You would think that a dominant passing attack would oppen up the run game but the only RB I can think of that was considered really good was James.

» I bet Elway wishes he had a better head coach.

Sep 21, 2014 - 7:53 PM - by atwater27
If we get to and win the Super Bowl with PFM, it will be in spite of our head coach, not because of him. I don't even mean any offense to the guy, he is just not responsive or innovative in an era where you need to be responsive and innovative to be successful. In other words, he's too simple. I know this will start a war, but why would that ever stop me?

» Statement from the Denver Broncos

Sep 21, 2014 - 1:50 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- “Owner Pat Bowlen has indicated a strong desire to keep specifics of his estate planning private, and the Denver Broncos intend to honor his wishes.

“While Mr. Bowlen's long-term hope is for one of his children to run the team, any speculation on the transition of his ownership to one of them is premature. No timetable has been set for that process by the organization or the National Football League.

“There are no plans for the sale of

the Denver Broncos, and the Pat Bowlen Trust will continue to implement the provisions set forth by Mr. Bowlen to keep the team in the Bowlen family.”

I am assuming this statement from the Broncos is in response to the following article in the Denver Post this morning.

» Seahawks prepared for anger-fueled Broncos' best shot

Sep 19, 2014 - 8:10 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
RENTON, Wash. – The Denver Broncos have had 7½ months to stew over their Super Bowl XLVIII embarrassment, and the Seattle Seahawks are prepared for all that pent-up angst to come pouring out in Sunday's rematch at CenturyLink Field.

"Absolutely. You can't expect them to come in and just lay down," Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. "They're out for a little bit of revenge, and they want to execute better than they did the last time. They don't want to be dominated in front of the entire world like they were before."

Smith returned an interception 69 yards for a touchdown, recovered a fumble and was named the MVP of Seattle's 43-8 romp back in February – a game in which the Broncos were favored, only to take a safety on their first play and watch all hell break loose from there.

» Julius Thomas's 3 - Keys To The Game!

Sep 19, 2014 - 6:03 PM - by Cugel
Heard this on ESPN Radio:

Julius Thomas has three keys for the game, and it sounds like he nails it totally:

#1. No turnovers. Broncos had 4 turnovers in the Super Bowl that turned the game into a rout. Nothing like that can happen if they are to have a chance this time.

#2. Get more time for Peyton. During the game Peyton was constantly harassed and hurried by just 4 Seattle DL. No blitzes. And Peyton never had time to throw deep on that defense.

#3. Keep an Even Keel. Don't get too high emotionally or too low too early in the game. Broncos came into the game and immediately got shocked by the fumbled snap. They never recovered emotionally and were never in the game. Keep it under control in the early going.

I have to agree with all of this as the keys. Sounds like the team has focused on some of the key short-comings in that game and are going to be ready!

» Trevathan listed as questionable for Seattle game

Sep 19, 2014 - 3:19 PM - by VonDoom
Hard to believe, but less than six weeks after he had his leg fractured, Danny Trevathan was back at practice on a limited basis this week, and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game. I'm thinking he won't play (I feel like it's a little quick to be in game shape, and we have the bye next week already) but it's impressive that he's even at this point.

http://www.denverbroncos.com/news-an...9-3640c0890ad7

But does that mean he could play in Seattle this Sunday?

"Oh, yeah, I view myself as definitely an option," the third-year weakside linebacker said. "If I need to play, I will. Right now, I'm questionable."

Head Coach John Fox said Trevathan had made "really good progress," and would make the trip to the Pacific Northwest.

The linebacker's final status will be determined Sunday, but he admitted that he's "not really putting a time (frame)" on his return to work.

"No doubt, I'd be ready to go," Trevathan added later. "But it's in (the team's) hands to make the final call. I'm questionable, so I'm going to take it one day (at a time) like I'm questionable."
