  • Official Game Day Thread: 2021: Week 5 Broncos vs Steelers

    Hey Bronco Fans,

    Welcome to week five, you know the week after reality set in. That Ravens game was Brutal. The offense mustered 7 freaking points at a home game.
    Defense was kinda clueless. For the 2nd time in his career a team has let Lamar Jackson pass for over 300 yards. Against a semi capable team we showed how over matched
    and out coached we could be. I hear Coach Fangio is going to do better this week by trying to use some of last weeks timeouts in this game.

    Hey at least the refs were being totally unfair and one sided. Shame on Teddy and Diontae Spencer for getting injured on illegal plays where no flag was called. They should know better...
    On the Bright side at least we held the Ravens to under 100 yards rushing.... until Lock throws and INT and gives them the ball back to have one last running play to get it. It just wasn't good
    for a whole lot of reasons.

    KC got on the winning track. Chargers look great. We get to go on the road to Pittsbugh. Big Ben as of late has played like Uncle Ben. He is 3-4 vs Denver in regular games and has thrown at least 1 int in each game. Steelers are 1-3 this season and are desperate for a win. They are at home so the terrible towels will be waving for that terrible team. We just need to be less terrible to have a chance there. When we played there last September we almost pulled out a win. 26-21.

    Even though the defense struggled last week, they are still doing mostly ok. The Broncos have not allowed a 60-yard rusher this season. PIT is averaging 55.3 rush YPG this season (fewest in NFL). Big Ben in his last 8 games has a 2-6 record, 5.9 pass yds/att, 12 TD, 8 INT, 80.6 passer rtg. He has went 4 straight games without passing for more that 1 TD.

    Hoping Teddy is well enough to get the Nod. He has done better in hisfirst 3.5 games than Drew did in a half a game. We def need better play calling. Last 6 quarters 1 TD and 3 FGS.
    That wont cut it in the NFL. Being with out KJ and Jeudy is hurting us. Steelers cant run the ball worth a lick, they rank 32, but they are a little better at passing then us. Defensively we are ranked 4th, they are 16th. So we do have a chance here.

    In the last 10 years we are 5-5 in week 5 games. Of the five wins. All five were on the road. Of the five losses 3 were at home, 2 on the road. In an odd note
    Fangio has actually won in week 5 the last two years beating the Chargers and the Pats on the Road. So it is not totally helpless. We just need to learn from last weeks miscues and
    play better as a team.

    Hoping for a better executed game, a better called game, a better reffed game and one where we emerge healthy. So many injuries on this team. I just want to see a better game. Over under is 40. I'd take the under unless Teddy is starting and the Defense does better this week.

    4-1 is a possibility, not a given.. Regardless of outcome please follow the COC as always.
    If you see others violating the COC report them, don't engage them or feed the trolls. The board has a great group of long standing mods who help keep this place running. I hope you get to see the game, I've seen them all so far this season. The good, the bad and the ugly. Again I hope we leave the field healthy. I hope we do well enough and end up with the "W" Be safe out there, and as always Go Broncos!!!

    I'm really looking forward to this game. I think it will reveal or expose a lot about the team, especially if they're mentally tough enough to be a winning team.

    If TB plays, I think they can score if they stay balanced. If Lock plays, the Oline and RBs will need to win. Then give Drew some play action and get the new speed guy on the field.

    I think Denver's defense will play well and possibly win the game.

          5-5 in Week 5, and all five wins are on the road.
          That's enough for me.

          Being in Northeast Ohio, AFC North country, I'd love nothing more then for Denver to come through these valleys and beat the Steelers.
          Physical press man, and pressure on passes.
          Clog the trenches on runs.
          Run the ball. Specifically to that rook. This game should be his coming out party. Let him loose.

          Play action.

          26 - 13
          Broncos win.

            Let’s go Broncos. I was so very excited when my TV guide originally showed this game was being shown and I had it all set up to record then boom, it got changed to the Bengals game. So very disappointed am I.

            If Schumer remembers we have two good running backs and runs the ball more, I think we can win this game.

            The defense needs a much better showing than last, that’s for sure. I also believe TB is playing.

              Same here. We also have the Bengals game. Looks like Red Zone again.

              Good news about TB.

                I think that's going to have to be the factor no matter what, with as banged up as the WRs are. Defense is going to have to be at its best to have a chance here

                  Go Broncos!!!! Broncos Country till I die! But... This is where the rubber meets the road, are we a tough, defensive, pass rushing, elite secondary team? Or do we let a fat man in concrete galoshes pass all over the field? Show me a team that can get off the mat when it gets punched in the mouth. Show some signs of life offense!!!

                  No Orange glasses today, show me this team is worth watching for the rest of the year. Tired of being a top ten draft team.

                  As always, Thanks Elway

                    Maybe we can run the ball more today and get our tight ends involved more. I Albert O playing today?

                              Really need to see the D set up today, especially Von. Need a lot of pressure on Big Ben and maybe force some turnovers. Darby being back should help. Still, gonna be a tough one to win in Pitt.....
