  • Predictions for the New England Game

    Well, what a week!!! This week has been particularly hard for me because several of my friends were layed off at my company. We had around thirty people lose their jobs this week...

    Back to the predictions...

    New England is coming in full of stream having won four games in a row. They will come out strong in the first quarter and we will need to play excellent defense to stop the momentum otherwise it could be a long night. We need to have some 3 and outs for them quickly.

    Broncos are playing their third string quarterback, but he is playing in Denver, where the crowd will be a big factor. We might not be as loud as we used to be in Mile High but we still are a factor in the game. Kanell did well until the fourth quarter when he through the interceptions, I look for him to get started early.
    Portis has been on the radio and TV stations and has said that this game is a must win. He has said it starts with the running game. He is a determined individual and it looks like he would take the Broncos on his back if he could. In Denver I look for him to have a 100 yard game.

    Rod and Shannon have also said this is an important game, so look at them to be huge contributors.

    Our defense is looking for some interceptions. Kelly Herndon is one that can do it. If Deltha is playing he will also be looking to get some interceptions because that will get him out of Shanahan's dog house. (I guess that is a big if)
    Gardner will start and Berry is going to be looking for more sacks.

    That said my prediction for the game will be:
    Broncos 30
    New England - 14 or 17
    Go Broncos!!! - Hosea 10:12

    NE -- 13
    Broncos -- 10

    I just don't think Kanell can play well enough to get Denver a victory...but maybe, just maybe, the kid will show all of us "naysayers" and do enough to get the Broncos a much needed win. If so...I will be the first to eat my words that he doesn't have it in him.

    I originally thought 21-24 points for the Broncos, but then I thought of the last Monday Night debacle against the Raiders. I also thought the Broncos were at home so that should give them another touchdown. I am also expecting an interception or two with run backs in that prediction.

      Well, in the Raiders game the Broncos were mostly healthy. They're not now. And Kanell hasn't proven yet that he can get this offense scoring a lot of points.

      I also wouldn't count on many interceptions since that has to be the defense's Achilles' heel. I'd be ecstatic if you were right, though.

      I agree with horseface that it'll be relatively low-scoring. Both defenses are playing well and neither offense has been lighting it up lately. Being at home I'm hoping for a touchdown or two so I'm guessing around 17-13 Broncos.

          Its gonna be war, but since we always seem to beat NE I'll have to say we are gonna win, I was more confident we were gonna beatthe ravens,

            Clinton Portis 225 all-purpose yards
            25 attempts for 150 yards rushing and 2 TD's
            5 receptions for 75 yards recieving

            Al Wilson 10 tackles 1 pass defense
            Kelly Herndon 6 Tackles 1 int.
            Trevor Pryce 6 tackles 2 sacks
            Lenny Walls 8 tackles 1 pass defense
            Bert Berry 3 tackles 1 sack
            Danny Kanell 15-25 150 yards 0td 0int's
            Mike Anderson 5 carries for 40 yards

            Rod Smith 4 catches for 20 yards
            Ashley Lelie 3 catches for 15 yards

            That is a decent productive prediction, eh?

              See Broncomania is dead


              There is very little light at the end of the tunnel for the Donkos in this game... The Patriots are clicking and the Donkos are suckin'... the team has very little confidence right now, as it has been riddled with injuries. [actually, both teams are hurting.]

              New England Patriots
              Probable QB Tom Brady (arm); DT Richard Seymour (leg)

              Questionable G Joe Andruzzi (shoulder); S Je'Rod Cherry (knee); TE Christian Fauria (leg); CB Ty Law (ankle/ribs); WR David Patten (knee); LB Mike Vrabel (arm)

              Out LB Ted Johnson (foot); DT Ted Washington (leg)

              Denver Broncos
              Probable LB Keith Burns (knee); RB Reuben Droughns (shoulder); DT Daryl Gardener (wrist); QB Danny Kanell (finger); S Kenoy Kennedy (ankle); C Tom Nalen (ankle); TE Shannon Sharpe (knee)

              Questionable WR Chris Cole (ankle); WR Ed McCaffrey (quadricep)

              Out LB John Mobley (neck); QB Jake Plummer (foot); T Ephraim Salaam (knee)

              This will be a relatively low scoring game, but bet the bank on the Patriots scoring at least 10 more points than the Donkos. Bet the bank on it.

                I love the Broncos, but I can't see them coming out of this with a victory.

                As I stated in an earlier post, they played the most uninspired game I have seen in all my life against the Ravens, it reminded me of the Rockies going through the motions just like they always do as soon as the All-Star break is done.

                I am sad to say that I look for more of the same this week. Despite having the silver tounged guru (Sharpe) {Maybe he can call in the National Guard now ang get the Broncs fired up}and being at home I dont see the Broncos playing well at all.

                My prediction,

                New England 17

                Denver 6

                I truly hope I am wrong.
                Bettin the house on Denver this year!

                  Bet the bank? Please do. Then maybe the Broncos will win and you won't be able to afford internet acccess anymore and we'll have to do without your wonderfully inspiring posts.

                  I assume you are just saying to "bet the bank" as a metaphor to illustrate your disdain for the Broncos.

                  Anyway, why is it you think the Pats are "clicking" considering their recent offensive struggles against the Browns (9 points at home), Dolphins (13 points regulation, admittedly a good defense) and Giants (17 points at home against #17 defense)? And why do you think they'll "click" against the Broncos' #2 defense in the league?

                  I can understand anybody's skepticism of the Broncos' offense after last week but the Pats are ranked #14 on defense and don't have Ray Lewis. And Kanell isn't coming off the flu and has had another week of practice with the starters and will be playing in front of the home crowd instead of a hostile road crowd.

                    New England 27, Denver 17

                    The Broncos are only going to win 2 or 3 more games this season and this isn't one of them.

                        We should have Jake Plummer back after the New England game; also Salaam, McCaffrey, Cole and a bevy of others should benefit greatly from the bye week . Of the Broncos 8 remaining games, 4 are against losing teams:

                        Home against San Diego
                        Home against Chicago
                        at Oakland
                        Home against Cleveland

                        Discounting the chance that we actually beat one of the remaining winning teams Pats, Chefs, Colts and Packers (okay, they have a losing record but I don't think they'll still have a losing record by then), do you really expect us to lose any of those games? Even though the Raiders are our rivals, they are seriously struggling and now look like they might let Gannon ride the bench for awhile even after heals up.

                        I can't tell who you root for but it's obvious from your avatar that you're anti-Broncos. Even many die-hard Chefs fans who post on this site give the Broncos a little more credit than do you.

                            Really? Whew, I'm glad they changed it. I just assumed from the caricature looking nature of it and from his negativity about the Broncos that he was another Chiefs or Raiders fan mocking the Broncos.
