  • Official Game Day Thread: 2023: Week 2 Commanders vs Broncos

    Welcome Broncomaniacs to week 2 the 2023 Season. Oddly enough seems a little like week 2 of the 2022 season. The Broncos with a new head coach who made some questionable calls. The team coming off a week one loss where the score was 17-16. It’s Déjà vu all over again.. or maybe not. Week 1 was bad. Starting the game with an onside kick, bold move, dumb move. Getting rid of your kicker for Will Lutz who missed on an extra point and field goal doesn’t look like a great decision. Bringing back Vance Joseph to run the D… Denver had no sacks and No QB hits in week 1.

    Russ didn’t do that bad overall in my opinion. Denver had only 6 possessions all game. He led two TD drives, and drives for two FGs. Not his fault Lutz missed. We also won the time of possession battle. Russ went 27/34 for 177 yards. Could the offense be more dynamic, yeah. A couple plays could have been bigger if we didn’t step out of bounds. The D could have have had less personal fouls and could have maybe put a man on Jimmy G so he couldn’t convert on a critical down.

    The run game was so-so 22 rushes for 94 yards. Perine was a nice change of pace runner. He was also our leading receiver in yards. Russ spread the ball to 10 different players. We can hope with Jeudy on the field we will see some more dynamic plays where we stretch the field. It was something sorely missing in week one. I didn't hate our game plan, but we did a lot of dink and dunking rather that testing the Faiders secondary.

    In my opinion we were competent, but we weren't explosive. Russ didn't take a lot of sacks which was good since Crosby is a wrecking ball.

    So like last year we start 0-1. We have a home game this week against the Commanders and a chance to go 1-1 . KC and San Diego both lost so that helps us if we can get the “W” Washington is coming off a win vs the Cardinals. They controlled the clock. Howell passed to 7 receivers, the run game covered 92 yards. They had a nice balance attack and pulled out the "W".
    Hopefully Payton comes out with a straight game plan instead of trying to get cute and we don't start behind the eight ball. .

    So week 2 games. How do we do? Well over the last 10 years we have a record of 8-2 in week 10 games. Of the 8 wins 5 were at home, 3 on the road. Of the 2 losses. 1 was at home, 1 on the road. So this game should work in our favor. Provided we don’t shoot ourselves in the foot.
    Here’s hoping for the turnaround… please as usual follow the COC. Mods do a great job, lets try to make the weekends as good as we can for them. Let’s hope for the “W” and that we end the game healthy. Hope everyone here gets to see and enjoy the game. Me and the fam will be watching good or bad. Have a great Sunday and as always Go Broncos!!!

    Good write up!! I'm always the optimist and believe we can should win most games. This one is no different!! I don't believe this Washington team is all that good. A lot of hype in the return of Chase Young but has he ever really lived up to the hype? Don't get me wrong they have a good defense but nothing about their offense scares anyone. This will be a convincing win from the Broncos.

    Denver wins 27 - 13

      Great writeup ELWAY. Good points. Hoping for a moving forward game. Let’s see if they can adjust things from their lacklustre performance last week. Let’s go broncos.

          Gotta start fast tomorrow. Let's get some pressure, Vance. Cardinals had 6 sacks last week.

              There's going to be sacks. Lots of sacks. Not many points. Just find a way to win SP.

                  That is weird! And we lost to the Faiders week one under a new coach (Fangio) too a few years ago. Just sickening.

                  Yeah I was missing Evero, probably shouldn't have let him walk either; we are missing quality DL but he seemed to get more out of his players.

                  Thanks Elway and good to see you back doing these again!

                  GooO BRONCOS!!!

                              This game will be determined by Denver's offensive line vs Washington's defensive line. Winner of battle will dictate every other matchup.
