What A Game
I dont know where to begin. That loss to the Lions was humiliating. What happened to the good old days when Denver ran the ball down opponent's throats. Anyhow I learned alot about the Broncos, first and foremost, Patrick Ramsey sucks, I really felt that when he came in down 16-0 we still had a chance for victory, but he proved me wrong. I mean come on he had 2 turnovers resulting in 14 Detroit points. Not to say the rest of the team played well, but when the quarterback is responcible for more points for the opposing team than your own, that should send up a red flag. Really all I'm saying is that the score was not reflective of the true Broncos. Cutler left the game in the second quarter with the score 13-0, and the defense forced Detroit into a 3 and out in their opening possesion of the second half. If Cutler had been healthy this probaly would have been the start of an excellent come back, but he couldnt play. Hopefully Cutler and the other injured Broncos will be available for next weeks game against Kansas City. http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d803de5fd&template=without-video&confirm=true
The game against Kansas City next week is a big game for the Broncos. Somehow after losing 5 of the last 6 the Broncos are still only one game behind the division leadin Chiefs and Chargers. With a win over the Chiefs and a Charger loss Denver would take the division lead at 4-5, but thats a tall order. To beat Kansas City in Kansas City is going to be tough, but is necasary to preserving the season. To do so the Broncos will need to come out early and establish the run, with either Henry or Young. This will help whichever quarteback starts. The offense also needs to capitalize in the redzone, which will greatly help the defense. Out league worse run defense faces a strong run game in Larry Johnson, so it could get ugly. But luckily the Chief's passing game is lackluster, allowing the Broncos to stackan 8 man box to help prevent the run. By no means should this be an easy game, but the Broncos can pull off a victory even if Cutler doesnt start.
