    Broncos fans, thanks for an epic game. No matter what the score is at the end, this is an epic game, considering the season both teams have gone through. In closing, I'd like you leave you with a view of the face of the Broncos for years to come:

    I sure hope not... would be nice to see a quality QB, a good coach (Mike had some good years but they are in the past), and a good defense!

    That picture does seem to point out a major difference between Cutler and Elway (there are many)... Elway never gave up, always looked like he was coming up with a plan, evaluating a new possibility... Cutler looks like he just got good seats and is waiting for his wife to bring him a beer!

      Heyyyyyyy!!!!
      You totally manipulated that shot and paused it at the "right" moment and then took your screenshot. Boooooo! It was a point probably before he was about to spit, he loves to spit. Anyway, yea Chargers won..they held their own. No doubt.
      But I really don't mind the boys face...so I'm okay w/ seeing his face.

      LOL

      I watched the game on the tele, and his facial expressions were what you'd expect. You can't expect him to be all smiles when your defense is s**t.

        Cutler is a quality QB. It's the Defense that killed this team this year. If you have to match a team TD to TD constantly you are gonna lose. You have to be able to score 7 and hold for 0 or at least 3... this O is gonna go 3 and out occasionally but when ANY team you face can score at will then you are gonna have problems. This Defensive Coordinator was terrible. The entire Defensive coaching staff needs to go. The offense isn't that bad considering we were on our 7th RB of the season so... Cutler is here to stay and I think he'll be head and shoulders above Rivers and most in the end. It's not Cutler and the Offense but when you go out there and do your job 90% of the time only to have the Defense give up and not stop anyone you are gonna get discouraged. Plus, Jay is kinda goofy looking to begin with so I wouldn't take his facial expressions too serioiusly.

          Yea their defense f-ing blows. It was seriously hard to sit through the game as they let the Chargers offense run all over them.
          And wth!? He's not goofy looking!!!:nono:

              Man, I'll bet you get all the chicks and everything.... You're probably good looking and hung like a horse too... I am so jealous of you...

              Remember my friend, crow is best served warm... I dare you to show up here next week after you get your ass handed to you...

                According to you and many many others. But I personally don't think he looks goofy.
                So what he isn't a Tom Brady or Tony Romo when it comes to the looks department. But hell I find him cuter than both those boys.

                Apart from the superficial stuff , I will add...
                yes I do love the sport and yes I do believe he is a great QB.

                • Wow!

                  I just sat through one of the most embarassing games I have seen in a while! *** happened here? Did the defense even get on the plane? Mike; it's time to retire dude! We need talent, we need a defense and we need someone with some fresh views at the helm; are ya listening Pat? Been with you since 1960, but damn! First place for 16 weeks to get an A#% whipping like that! Shameful, can't think of another word (that I can post here) that describes it better! All I can hope for now is Indy to get some payback for us!

                  • The game was miserable. But before the Chargers start bragging about their "superb" performance, they should thank Denver's defense for sucking so much from beginning to end.

                        There is a forum for Chargers fans, it's on the SD Chargers main website.
                        Oh I know why you are here, you were too afraid to get in their faces to gloat so you hide behind a computer screen and gloat through typing what you were too afraid to say to their faces.
                        Ah yea figures.

                        • Forgive me...

                          ...for not weeding through 74 pages of posts before bringing this up. Maybe somebody else already did. But is it just me, or is the fact that Dre Bly is the highest paid Bronco some kind of sick joke? Seriously ... people bag on Bailey, who does give up his fair share of big plays lately. But is there a more consistently burned member of the pathetic Broncos D than Dre Bly? All. Season. Long. Deep balls, short routes, missed tackles, you name it. The defense is bad, bad, bad. But Dre Bly is at the heart of the suck in my opinion.

                          Nonetheless, here's to 2009! Hopefully with an(other) overhauled defense. Hmm... odds are Wade Phillips will be looking for a job. I hear he used to be a pretty decent Defensive Co-Ordinator.

                            Well I agree also if we don't draft defense next year they all outa be fired. We weren't the only ones who choked today just the worst.....At least we don't have to play the Colts next week, GL Bolts, lol..........

                              There are many Heisman winners who have had nothing but a mediocre career. He has won zero MVPs in bowl games during his NFL career, he has played in NO bowl games in his NFL career, he has had NOTHING but a lackluster to mediocre NFL career, need I continue? His Career is NFL, his scholastic experience is not of consequence. How many people have you heard talking about Elway's Stanford record after his third season other than as a mere footnote? How many people had to reach back to Roger Staubuck (sp) career at the Naval Academy to get his "accomplishments"? What about any other hall of famer, did anyone have to referr back to the college seasons which were over three years old to come up with "accomplishments"? It is okay, you have a mediocre QB... so does Denver, it is fine to admit that and accept it, you do not need to be reaching for any sort of justification to pump him up. He has ZERO accomplishments and is MEDIOCRE no matter how you look at it.

                              Have fun watching your mediocre QB get schooled by an excellent QB next week... but maybe if you keep lauding his accomplishments, Rivers will invite you to sit on his couch with him to watch the Superbowl... then the two of you can talk about how great he is and you can drool as he answers your questions about how he won 5 bowl MVPs' "back in the day"...
                              Lets look at the stats for this year shall we?

                              QB CMP - ATT - YDS - CMP% - YPA - TD - INT - SACK - RAT
                              Rivers 312 - 478 - 4009 - 65.3 - 8.39 - 34 - 11 - 25 - 105.5
                              Cutler 384 - 616 - 4526 - 62.3 - 7.35 - 25 - 18 - 11 - 86

                              Rivers is better in every category that matters other than total yards and that was only because Cutler had 138 more attempts...and still Rivers threw 9 more TDs than Cutler! Plus, Rivers took twice as many sacks as Cutler. Yes, that indicates that Cutler moves around better, but it also indicates that he had better protection.

                              And don't give me that crap about Cutler not having a running game to help him. Here's the Rushing Stats for 2008. Denver was far better than SD:

                              Team ATT - YDS - AVG - YPG - TD - FUM - LST
                              Denver 387 - 1862 - 4.8 - 116.4 - 15 - 15 - 11
                              SD 421 - 1726 - 4.1 - 107.9 - 13 - 13 - 7

                              Oh, but maybe you'd like to somehow claim Rivers had a better D to work with? Only marginally. Chargers ended the season ranked 25th to Denver's 29th:

                              Team YDS - YPG - RUSH - PASS - PTS
                              Denver 5993 - 374.6 - 2337 - 3656 - 448
                              SD 5599 - 349.9 - 1641 - 3958 - 347

                              So, if you want to label Rivers as "mediocre", then perhaps Cutler should be labeled "mediocre-er"?

                              • when the bucs won the super bowl our QB was #3 overall. and the raiders QB was ranked above us @ #2...and we crushed them on the big day!

                                #1 QB that year didn't make it to the SB...

                                so you see, at the end of the day those numbers don't hold too much weight...you get bragging rights but you don't always get to kiss that trophy and show off your shiny new ring...
