    I'll see if I can find that

    here it is..... right around 7:30
    Haha that was great, thanks for sharing. McMoney deserves some interest like that, especially when he stood so tall on a day full of incompetent kicking.

    There were a few others. FL was one.

    My post about the Ravens game. I think DT still cares. I would love for him to go out and prove it. Just like Keenum. Prove that last year was his norm, not the exception.

    And Flacco? I want Flacco to self sack because Von looked at him.

    Not a fan of DT, at all but in Super bowl 48, DT set a record for receptions. I think, maybe 13?

    Our D needs to be in his face. Make him make mistakes. Put the fear of Von in him.

    And being the optimist that I am.....Keenum will throw rockets to DT for at least 3 TDs.

    And we shut out the Ravens in their house.


    Hey, I can hope, right?

    It makes plenty of sense, he needs to be on our bench behind Sutton and Patrick so that we can let them grow as WR's. They are already outplaying DT.

    But maybe it's time to put DT a little lower on the Depth chart. Time to put him on notice, you need to perform.

    Next week we face Flacco, again not a world beater, but we need to build up as many wins as we can.

    Bruce Arians was completely wrong when he talked about pace at that point, and wondered why the team wasn't going no huddle? At that point the Broncos O had been 3 and out at least three times and the defense had been on the field for long stretches, the worst thing you can do in that scenario is go no huddle and then go three and out and get the D on the field quicker. The O needed to make some plays to establish themselves first.

    As for them being out coached early, Oakland absolutely had the better game plan. Those coaches get paid to win games too. But in the end the Broncos made the right adjustments and the Raiders couldn't match that.
    Totally agree with you on the no huddle comment. Arians was off base on that one. But believe he was reaching for something that would insert some energy. I did agree the Broncos were taking too long between plays. They looked unprepared, mentally. Which meant they had great difficulties adjusting quickly. One way to inject fire is no huddle... but agree.. not then. Still, something had to light a fire under them because they just looked like they were waiting to get hit in the mouth a few times to motivate. Emphasize that because it drives me personally nuts. Their cohesiveness throughout most of the first 3 quarters was worse than dismal.

    Leadership?

    There are sooo many hot takes in this post, let's just say I disagree.

    Will agree with that. Coaching won them the game. It is also what lost them the first 2 1/2 quarters too. The game starts well before you take the field. What we saw was horrific from a coaching standpoint, until the latter part. The commentators kept interjecting, well, comments, that seemed obvious to zillions of people watching. The pace, the rhythm of the game management which comes down to coaching was... did I mention horrific. It wasn't until they went into hair on fire mode that some things started happening. Which was being commented on very early.

    Something else that seemed apparent is... leadership. Who are the leaders? There appears to be a gaping hole on leadership. It shows.

    The raiders played a pretty good game honestly. Their Oline is good so we couldn't get any pressure, but it doesn't help they had multiple open guys every play for quick throws. Then their dline kept our rushing game pretty slow for the most part. I didn't expect this hard of a game. It feels like we have 10x more talent than the Raiders, but we just keep getting out coached.
    Outcoached.... yep.
