Who would you rather play in the playoffs, Indianapolis or New England... if we are the 5th seed we play the 4th seed. if we are 6th, we play 3rd. I would rather play Indianapolis since they are stumbling like the last 3 years, but on the other hand, new england we have beet already this year, but it wasnt an outstanding margin. You pick which is team is easier, and with our luck we will get the harder one, but it still wont be a challenge since we are the broncos!!!!11111one one one.

Manning loves our no-pass rush defense. I don't want to see him again until we upgrade defensive line. And Shanny just seems to have the Patriots' number.

Give me the Patriots any day of the week... particularly Sunday. ;)

No Question, NEW ENGLAND!!!

Brady lacks a steady Wr, he passed to 11 differant targets last week. He wont be able to find that many open recievers on our secondary. We beat them once this year and have a solid record against them (including face-offs in the playoffs). The defence isnt what it used to be.... I would rather face a somewhat dimineshed Patriots team than face a payton manning led offence on our d.

Have you checked the stats? Pats D have only allowed 14.3 points per game my friend.

And I find it funny that you feel Brady spreading it to 11 different receivers is a Patriot weakness.

That's one of the reasons why NE has won 3 SB's this millenium and Denver has won zero.

NE is the embodiment of TEAM.

Colts because of two reasons- Tatum and Mike Bell. We can run all over them

Ask me any other year over the past Peyton seasons, I'd say NE. This year is different, however. I think we would catch the Colts at the right time... a "window of opportunity," if you will.

I'm a little leery of NE. They have a huge axe to grind with us.

This week could prove to be very interesting if the Colts honk it to the Dolphins like they did in Houston. I know I'm rooting for the Pats to win against the surging Titans for sure. I don't want to have the Colts Run Defense happen to show up for the game like they did when Cincy came into town. That would allow Manning to put on a show like he always seems to do when the D holds the other team off just enough.

Brady says he likes his chances, but when there is the lurking psychological aspect like there is in the Denver-New England-Indy hate triangle, its best to go with what we know here I believe. My gut would be in knots all week with flashbacks of 87 on Roc Alexander and then D. Williams if we had to face the Colts on the first weekend of the playoffs. I don't think the Broncos would overlook either team, but I definately feel they would over-analyze and over-prepare for Manning and the Colts, whereas with the Pats I think the team would be adequately prepared while not getting psyched out. :salute:

I think we can beat both, but I feel we have the better chance against New England. Shanny has Bellichick's number any given day, especially on Sundays, and the Colts' rush defense is, eh, not what most would call good. Or Mediocre.

I'm weary of both.

NE looks scarier then they did when we played them earlier this season since their WR core has had time to get to know Brady and vice versa, and their passing game will be more potent then in our previous game this year. All that "we beat them last time" stuff doesn't really fly my flag personally. I'm a big believer of any given sunday type of stuff, anything can happen. Maroney still looks good as well, with Dillion providing an excellent power running change of pace, even though Bellicheck still seems to like to play Dillon more. However our secondary looks much more capable of stopping their WR core compared to the Indy alternative.

The Colts on the other hand seems less effective when defending against the run, Denver's bread and butter, and with injuries to their safeties, Indy seems to be giving up on the pass more often now to. However they have the best offensive line in the league when concerning pass protection IMO, and besides the obvious refrence to Payton, the Colts have arguably the best duo of recievers in the league.

All that being said, I prefer playing the Patriots for one major reason and a few minor ones. The big reason goes by the name Harrison and Wayne. Payton and Brady are both great QB's but what seperates them this season is the WR's they have to rely on. Harrison and Wayne are physical, smart, extremely fast and prove a problem for almost every defense, especially ones who have difficulty with the pass rush. On the flipside, I feel much more confident in Denver's ability to stop the run against the Pats, who have the better rush offense of the two IMO, then stopping Payton from finding an open Harrison or Wayne.

Let's put it this way.

Patriots:

This year, we went into THEIR house, and killed THEM.

Colts:

This year, they came into OUR house, and beat US.

Take a guess who I'd rather face. :rolleyes:

Jake played two of his best games all season against those two teams, so I don't think a new QB will sway the favor one way or another too much.

If we can't touch Manning we lose.

If Brady can't keep it together, and if the Pats can't stop the Denver O (Which is actually improving on a more consistant basis), then we win.

Any given sunday indeed.

But with your logic, we are just taking shots in the dark, completely blind guesses, no?

I'm using some basis, as up-to-date as possible, to give an idea for why I say what I am saying.

Normally I would be hesitant to take on Manning unless we could get him in our house. This year, though, the whole league has the Colt's number and it's the 32nd ranked rushing defense in the league.

Rushing offense also tends to be one of our strengths, provided we put Mike Bell in to start and let Tatum spell him for the big gains.

The key to beating Manning is to keep him off the field, and this year their rushing defense is so bad that it would be possible to eat up the clock, keep our Thunder and Lightning tandem pounding away at them and limit their production.

Plus, if we get the ball into the end zone (provided Tatum could find the handle on it, of course) regularly we make it that much harder for Peyton to kills us the way he has in the past.

I think this year we are much more balanced than in the past, can stop Manning's offense more than the Colt's defense can stop our offense.

No matter who we play, their offense is going to target DWill. I just like our offense and ball control game more against the Colt's defense this season than against the Pats.

Still, there is a lot to be said for playing a team whose number we have had for a number of years.

Interesting choice: choose the team who has had our number for years or the one whose number we have had.

I suspect this season would be the one to reverse the trend.

Nobody should want to play Tom Brady right now. Remember how Peyton Manning picks on our secondary by firing it to the open man? Well Tom Brady finally figured out how to do that. As for who I'd want to play first round? Baltimore.

I agree with you! If the Broncos had a consistent running game and some pass rush (only if Coyer would change his defensive scheme to be more aggressive) I know the Broncos could beat the Colts. But I am not as arrogant as some who think NE would be a pushover and a automatic win. And no I would not want to play Baltimore

12-28-2006, 06:18 AM
Either one and I mean that. Imho Indy is ripe for the picking, because I think now we could hang with them, not in a shootout mind you but if its a close game I think we could pull it off.

Have you checked the stats? Pats D have only allowed 14.3 points per game my friend.

And I find it funny that you feel Brady spreading it to 11 different receivers is a Patriot weakness.

That's one of the reasons why NE has won 3 SB's this millenium and Denver has won zero.

NE is the embodiment of TEAM.
I didnt say it wasnt still good! (in fact i have the patriots d as my starting d in my fantasy football league lol) But you have to admit the defence isnt as spectacular as it has been during the years of the patriots dominion. And what i mean by spreading the ball around is that Brady no longer has a steady reciever or a go to man any more. Believe it or not, brady might have all day to throw on our less than spectacular d-line, but the lb's and db's for the Broncos are top of the line. In my openion, having foxy at safety will help us vs the pats. Essentially it gives us another corner on the many different wrs that NE throws out there. I also never said anything about the patriots being bad, those 3 sb's were all well deserved and i respect your coach and the working as a team. But no offence, i rather face a Patriots team that isnt what it used to be, than a Payton Manning team that picks apart our zone like no ones business. The weakness of the Colts is the run d. the weakness of the broncos o, is the run game. We cant be consistant there, and tatum is on a fumbling tandom. We just dont match up good against the colts. We have a history (including earlier this very season) of soundly beating the patriots in this millineum. That includes those spectacular years of theirs.

I agree with you PCE the Pats have been playing much better, but Indy has torched Denver in Indy so many times that at least against NE we (Denver) has a chance to win.

In Indy I am not so sure.

Both matchups are tough. Stopping Manning, which Denver has done only once is tougher IMHO

I respect both of these teams Immensly though and Denver will have to play a perfect game to win against either team. No Interceptons for Cutler and the Pats/Indy will have to turn it over 2+ times and maybe Denver wins then.

we would need Tatum and Mike Bell to combine for 200 yards rushing and NO TURNOVERS (this means yout Tatum ;) ) to have a chance to win this game. It will be very very very tough though

12-28-2006, 08:54 AM
got to be the colts, we can run at will against that D.

we can also chew up huge chunks of clock and keep manning off the field..

i believe coyer would blitz a lot more this time around.

the pats would be up for revenge, and with brady stretching the field with 4-5 receiver sets, we wouldn't have the secondary to cope.

we also wouldn't get much on the ground, as there run D is good.

NE is the embodiment of TEAM.

No offense, PCE, but look at the teams that the Pats have faced during the second half of the season.

Jets - 20th in the league in scoring
Green Bay - 23rd in the league in scoring
Chicago - 2nd in the league in scoring*
Detroit - 25th in the league in scoring
Miami - 29th in the league in scoring
Houston - 27th in the league in scoring
Jax - 9th in the league in scoring* (however, they scored 21 points...more than 14.3 points anyway)

Far from high flying offenses that the Pats have faced. They have only faced 2 top 10 scoring offenses. In fact, their vaunted 14.3 points per game allowed is largely inflated because they shutdown the mighty juggernaut offenses such as Buffalo (6 points allowed), Minnesota (7 points allowed), Green Bay (0 points allowed), and Houston (7 points allowed).

Denver's offense is far from high flying. But since Cutler was made the starter Denver has averaged 25.2 points per game. Which is better than any team on the above list except Chicago. Throw in that Denver's defense matches up well against NE and Denver's history against NE in total and you can understand why Denver fans would rather face NE.

NE is a good team. They have a solid defense...especially against the run. I respect them and think that they are capable of beating the Broncos. But they are vulnerable and Denver has shown that they can beat them.

I'd rather play Indy, only because something about the Pats scares me. I think that the Pats would be looking for revenge after what we did last year in the post season. Indy has been playing soft lately and would perfer if we played Indy. But then again, last time I called Indy in the Post Season. The Bronco's got destroyed. I just hope we can win in the post season.

12-28-2006, 10:13 AM
Guys this is a no brainer. Go to NE because we have had so much success. I want to keep being the only team to beat Tom Brady in the playoffs. What a great title. I think we could put more points on them now then before b/c we got General Cutler out there with his 25 ppg instead of Jake with his 17 ppg. So yeah it'll be a totally different ballgame this time around but same result. Save Indy for the Championship game where they choke the most!!!

JvDub95
12-28-2006, 11:18 AM
It's confusing to me why any fan would say I want to go into Indianapolis when they have our number. I know that it's a different year and a different team but lets face it, Denver has a harder time beating the Colts than any other team. We know that D. Williams would get matched up with Reggie and get smoked all game. Is there even a reciever threat that scares you on the Pats roster? An aging Troy Brown or a handmedown reciever in the name of Caldwell, the only reciever that would even cause a problem would be the rookie Jackson and I think Denver can handle a rookie. Denver would hand the Patriots thier second consecutive playoff loss if they go to New England.

Definitely the patsies. I had too many nightmares of the colts torching us. Patsies are the media favorites and that way they'll overlook us like they usually do. But either way if either team knows how to exploit mismatches with John Lynch, we're toast. Patsies barely beat the lions few weeks ago and brady looked awful. NO ONE on their offense scares me. While the colts have the 2 best WR duo in the league.
Our talent on Defense is a mismatch for the patsies Offense. Don't forgot the patsies Defense is made up of bums and old players mainly the secondary. Why should we fear them? We shouldn't. We just need to go in Gillette stadium and punk them like we did last time. Just be more aggressive this time.

The Patriots...it will be tougher than last time, but we have the best shot against them out of anyone. Champ is playing unbelievably well, and they don't even have a #1 WR to begin with, and we would have a better chance against the Colts now that Tatum is healthy and we know how to beat them, but playing in Indi is never fun...

Good post LDB and I admire you for slicing and dicing the stats in a manner you see fit. Allow me to do the same. The most points NE has given up in a single game was 27 to Indy. The only team to give up less points in a single game was Baltimore. Therefore, NE ranks # 2 defensively.

Meanwhile, Denver gave up 34 to Indy in October, 35 to SD in Nov. and a whopping 48 to SD in December! Not a great trend my friend.

The probability of NE picking apart your suspect D is very high. At the same time, the probability of Denver picking apart NE's "vaunted" D is very low, especially with a rookie QB and TE.

There's no vulnerabilty in New England. I hope and pray we face you again. :fight:

We should have won that game against Indy, and the Broncos have something to

However, here's the definition of vulnerability:

Indy 34 - Broncos 31 (where's the D?)
SD 35 - Broncos 27 (where's the D?)

Thanks, PCE, but I didn't slant stats. I posted the second half of the Pats season. That is it. I showed the offensive rankings for the teams the Pats faced. Nothing slanted at all...but I guess if it makes you feel better. It is true that the Pats are #2...but those stats are inflated because of the offenses they have played against and the ones they have completely shut down.

We weren't talking about Denver's defense. But I guess you just wanted to get the heat off of your team. We all know that Denver's defense has collapsed in the second half of the season. But getting blasted by the teams with the 1st (although the 14 of those 48 points were because of starting field position...if you watched the game, Denver went for 2 4th downs both inside the Denver 30 yard line setting up easie scores for LT..wasn't much the defense could do) and 3rd best offenses in the league isn't a surprise or anything. Both of those offenses are a lot more lethal than the Pats...so it isn't that big a deal to me. Like I said, Denver's defense lines up well against the Pats offense.

Denver's offense? Yeah, we got a rookie. Several of them in fact. And they are all contributing to the offense now. Like I said...over 25 points per game since Cutler took over. Which is better than any team NE has faced in the second half of the season...other than the Bears (and we all know that there offense is shaky at best).

The Pats could beat Denver. It could happen...they have a good team with a great coach. But Denver has done well against them in the past...they have gotten killed by Indy in the past. Which is why I would rather face them than the Colts.

You will probably get your wish and play NE in the first round (provided Denver takes care of business against SF, which is no gimme)

The more I think about it I feel NE will rest their starters for most of their game against Tenn. Every time NE won a SB they had a bye so I think NE will use Sunday's game as a bye week for their starters.

The Patriots have more to gain by resting their banged up team than they do in trying to gain the 3rd seed.

id rather have the Pats. we are notoriously bad against the Colts in the playoffs and we cant pass rush ANYONE. that doesnt bode well against Peyton Manning. but we always seem to control NE and id like to see Brady get popped in the mouth by D.J. Williams or Al Wilson. so the Pats

Indianapolis or New England?

Either way we would have to go their house and we have allready taken care of the Pats. Colts can't defend the run, yet our defense has yet to put any pressure on Manning. Until the defense can put pressure on Manning, I would like to avoid them for now.

I think we could run the ball down Indy's throat all night long, keeping Manning off the field. NE is playing good ball lately and I think we would have a tough time with them. Either way.....If we want to win a superbowl we should be able to beat either team. If not.....then it just not meant to be.

someone agrees with me... you guys keep bringin up the past... you dont know that it already PAST. all 3 teams are a whole nother team then when we played eachother indy got worse, we got better, i think, pats got better.

Honestly I think if we would blitz our linebackers/safetys we could get pressure on Indy. Also Mike Bell was able to run the ball when we last played them. Tom Brady is the last person I want to play in the playoffs.

You dont get it, if we blitz, it leaves our center field open.... oh wait we have bailey... nothing forget what i said.

I voted for NE. Weve beat them this year in their house, we beat them last year in the playoffs. I think we can beat them again, but it will be a close , but very good game.

Indy on the other hand we are notoriously bad against in the playoffs, although we do have a new QB and they have been stumbling since we last faced them. Id still rather play NE in NE.

:salute:
