Here we are, fingers dug in trying to cling to the 6th wild card spot. How have we been playing lately... U G L Y We aint got no Alibi. Defense has been inconsistent. They struggled vs the Saints and KC. Only marginally better against the Jags.
Thankfully we had a defensive score, since our offense once again put the "A" in Anemic. Again it was proven that Paxton is not quite ready to be a starting QB in the NFL. Not sure he will be ready by next year either. That dog of a game was a Punters Paradise.
On the bright side Kubes signed Justin Forsett.... What better way to help out a poor run game than picking up the guy who was cut multiple times this season. Let's put some icing on this cake and schedule another 1pm east coast start against the improving Titans fresh off a bye week! Marriotta has been on fire lately, so the D will have it's hands full in the secondary. He has almost 3000 yards and has 25 TDS. If his arm gets too tired from all the passing then he can just hand to to Demarco who can put up big #s vs our run Defense.
Our D is getting tired, in Weeks 12 and 13 the Broncos D, was on the field for 157 snaps -- nine more than anyone else.
The Offense didn't help last week. If Trevor can take the field, it should help some provided he can stay upright. His mobility will be limited, do he won't be as effective as he was in the KC game.
Our record for the 13 game of the season. Over the last decade 6-4. Of the 6 wins. 5 were at home. Of the 4 losses 3 were on the road. The one that was at home was last year to the Raiders.
This will not be an easy game. We all know the schedule gets so much harder the final 3 weeks. We need the "W" here and now. Wouldn't hurt if Buffalo and Arizona won tomorrow to help weaken the wild card competition.
Have to hope the football gods are listening up there. We need better play calling, more creativity. Better O-line protection, better running lanes. Wrs who can get better separation and some calls to throw it deep. We need better Tackling vs the run and less yards after contact. We need to be the dominant defensive team that we were last year, or Denver will be watching the playoffs not participating.
I will be rooting for them from kickoff to double zero on the clock. Hoping as I always do for a Bronco win.
This is the part where I remind you to please be mindful of what you post and lets try to enjoy the game. It is the tough time of the season. Please watch what you say and how you say it in a post. Please follow the posted COC and thank you in advance for your time. Hope we end with a "W" and stay in contention As always GO BRONCOS!!!
