    Heh, the most dissapointing loss I can remember was in our first Superbowl vs Dallas. I remember being convinced that Morton was cheating since he used to play for Dallas (I was 8).

    Since then I've learned that there are alot of ups and downs but I've been lucky as a Bronco fan since in the last 20 years we have had alot more success than failure. I can't imagine what it'd be like rooting for a team like the raiders or chiefs, must be pretty frustrating most of the time... that'd probably explain their attitudes.

    The main thing that changed was all the zone coverage, good QB's like Manning will destroy it every time IMO.

    The play where we didn't down Harrison and he got up for the TD summed it all up. Our defense just wasn't mentally in the game. Maybe the week that we rested them DID hurt their game after all.

    Playing zone defense all day and injuries is what killed is today. You'd think after what happened against the raiders with that soft zone coverage last year we wouldn't have tried it again (especially with a different coordinator).

    Actually, drafting a QB is not a bad idea. We need another backup (get Jarious OUT OF DENVER...PLEASE!). Plummer is not a spring chicken, and we need his help to mold the QB of the future.

    I don't know about one thing but a few things hurt today.

    #1 Ferguson being hurt

    #2 Herndon playing with the banged up hand, they had him in bump coverage and he could not bump. His left hand was too heavily wrapped. On the first td he lost his balance trying to bump the WR.

    #3 Dline pressure was not there today.
    Your only as good as your back up's. I mean, Your right. But that was as pathetic a performance as I've seen in what is suppose to be a play off team. But what the hell,they pretty much sucked from A to Z.

    That pretty much sums it up.

    Jake is great. Our offense is just fine -the play calling was terrible- but our offense is fine.

    The defense needs a lot of work. Al "My mouth piece don't fit" Wilson isn't the great leader everyone thought he was and the secondary needs more experience, more veterans.

    use Q more...enough said, when the Broncos were moving the ball, they had Portis and Griffin in the back field putting either one in motion...they couldn't defend that, then denver tries to go to the I-Form, just downhill from there...

    2004--More defensive athletes....Defense wins championships!!!

    Remember last year when we played zone against the Raiders and got killed twice? That looked just like what happened today, except for the 2 man rush.

    Martzall 11, you just opened up a can of worms.

    Yea!!!! Lets talk about Zone coverage for a minute.

    You would think that after having the opposition rip through your d-backs like they were not even on the field, something would change. Obviously not the case in that game. We just let the receivers pick and choose wherever they wanted to run. Even I could get a couple of beer drinking buddies together and do the same thing against that defense. Granted, the Colts are possibly the best passing team in the NFL right now, but Damn!!!! CHANGE the gameplan if it is not working. Now, lets talk about the people that are playing those positions. What type of coverage was that? Is it my imagination or did the safetys look like they were "hungover" and totaly unenthuziastic. I swear they looked like they were sleeping or something. I think that we really need to look at making some BIG time changes in our defensive backfield in the off season. What makes me mad is the fact that when it was obvious that the defense gameplan was not working, (like in the first quarter), it would have been changed, but nooooo. What is it? too much pride to change the gameplan during the game? It was really sickening to watch Indy just throw at will anywhere that they wanted to unmolested. It did not even look like they were trying. Now I think that I am finally finished with all of my postgame tangents, I will try to find a psychriatrist to help me deal with the next 7 months

    THE VANDAL.......................................
    (I think I feel better now)

    well our coverage got exploited and Peyton had all day to throw..but what killed me was Stokley 120(something) yards and 2 Td's? come on now, you would think Harrison or Wayne...but Stokley?...Stokley?..then again Harrison had 100+ yards and Wayne had a TD, so we basically couldn't stop anyone...
    again..Stokley?
