    For those of you too lazy to look

    BEST BETS

    Pittsburgh (-4) over DENVER

    Denver’s not the same team they were in previous years. Both DAVE and DVOA peg them as a well-below average team. Meanwhile, the Steelers are the third-best team in football according to both metrics. Denver’s home-field advantage helps, but the Steelers are still a superior team and one likely to create problems for Jay Cutler.


    Awesome year its been eh? We'll at least have a high pick in the draft... heres hoping we don't blow that

    I really wonder where the fans will stand with this team and Mike Shanahan if we do indeed lose this weekend and lose badly.

    It'd almost be worth having it happen just to see the reaction...

        Well, aren't we all just up-beat and optimistic about the Orange and Blue? We're a fairly young team with basically a rookie QB and defensive line. I don't know too many teams that win superbolws with that kind of roster, but I think we will improve a little every week from now until season's end.

          I don't think anyone realistically thinks this team is a Super Bowl contender with the way it's played through the first five games.

          But I also think there aren't any excuses for what happened at home Vs. San Diego. Young or no, that was flat out embarrassing.

            Ummmm... Just a question here...


            What about yourself? Considering you were *ahem* critical of Shanahan before the San Diego game. I seem to remember you saying something to the effect that if things don't change this year...


            I'm just a little on this one.

              No surprises for this Broncomaniac. Then again I'm not surprised by their struggles to date either.

                No, I said that things needed to be drastically improved by next season, meaning this team is a clear division winner and fighting for homefield advantage in the playoffs.

                This season I'm pretty much expecting the unexpected.

                My reaction will be the same as it was after the past three losses. Nothing has changed. There is a fundamental flaw in this team somewhere that goes beyond simple youth and inexperience. I have expectations that we'll play better but it's too hard to determine with this team. We may get an upset. We may simply be beat. We may also get clobbered. This game can go all different directions.

                That said, I think fans will be more willing to entertain letting Shanahan go than they have been if we lose this game in a way similar to the San Diego loss. This is a 'what have you done for me?' lately League, and four consecutive losses (3 at home) to AFC opponents will have fans fuming.

                  There's a difference between 'struggling' and not being very good.

                  I expected us to struggle, especially during this stretch of games. But to get decimated, and embarrassed? Never.

                      sbutk: i can see why Denver is taking TO's right now [trailing by 7, with 30 seconds left in the half]. but why Oakland???

                        TomAEto, TomAHto. What I had in mind when I typed struggles was that we may not be very good and having a problem seeming to do the basic things right. Horrible games like the last, while discouraging, aren't surprising to me.


                        As for the problems? I think a huge one that no one is thinking of is the whole ego and leadership issue. Our longest standing leader on either side of the ball is Lynch. With Rod out due to injury and Wilson gone for the same, there's no strong player leadership in the locker room. That let's all the little childish ego's flourish instead of getting squashed and put in their (proper) place (as has happened in the past on this team.)

                          You don't suppose many of the problems on defense could have anything to do with the injuries?

                          I guess Shanahan is to blame for Courtney Brown and Ebenezer Ekuban (not like we could use those two), Al Wilson and Sam Brandon.

                          Where are our biggest weaknesses on defense?

                          Oh yeah, areas where injuries have effectively either ended the careers, or at least the seasons, of several starters.

                          Now watch the O-line struggle and somehow that will be Shanahans fault too

                            We're already behind Miami and St Louis in the race for the first overall pick.

                            I mean, if we're going to suck, we might as well suck the best.

                              I was just showing more people around the board what people are saying and a statistical look at it and my attempt at optimism... by no means am I saying we will lose, but I figure if we are gonna struggle this year the good news is April should be exciting.
