    Yes our depth was bad last year, so bad we embarassed you in the playoffs. Most Bronco fans didnt agree with Kiszla, and believed it was no excuse for losing but many teams like Pats fans would talk about injuries and we would have to talk about it not being better for us. Yes some used the excuse that having a 3rd string C who made the biggest mistake hurt us. Though it wasnt as common as the refs 1 bad call cost us in what could have easily been a 3 scoring game.

      I don't think playing them closer in SEA proved that at all. You learned from your mistakes and didn't try to be as pass happy, thus not turning it over as much. You also didn't have the special teams mistakes, or things like giving up a safety. IMO it was more of that, and had very little to do with being healthy. Your biggest SB problems weren't caused by your injuries anyhow.

      Similar thing with the Niners, their biggest issues weren't injury related, offense was the bigger issue IMO. I'd point to drops as a big thing. Crabtree drops a well set up screen pass that could have likely gained decent yardage to help the down and distance on the opening play, instead its 2nd and 10. A drop by Davis that could have extended a drive, instead a punt. A dropped potential TD that caused the difference in 4 points. The turnover by Kaep as well, where he went for a longer gain instead of taking what could have likely been a first down.

      With 0 drops and turnovers from SFO, the game is likely much closer, but those aren't due to injury. With our injured players in, it may have been a bit closer..but I doubt much. And it's no knock on those guys as they are great players, but teams often seem to suffer very little in terms of overall play with the loss of even great players.

      With SD, I think Woodhead may have helped SD control the clock a bit, with methodical plays. He is good at screen passes, and he is good at low running which helps him get yards while being tackled if he gets in good position before contact. It would have to be set up well though to be effective IMO, and the Chargers weren't able to create running lanes all that well. Thus, it may not have made a big difference.
      I agree Woodhead helped them in their 1 win last year and in the playoffs we played to contain, though the way Marshall was playing today its hard to deny screens would have worked as well no matter who was catching. I think SD's game plan was that they would offensively do what they did last year and expect a victory. They didnt change their plan up much in last years playoffs game or in this game. The adjustments were minor and they tried to force an offense that we had picked apart before.

      Its true our D got tired very easily last year and this year as well but its not enough for them to make a huge comeback. If they wanted more success they should have pushed more up the flats and keep our LB's off the line of scrimmage

        Yeah bud, congrats on beating our JV defense with huge side serving of help from the refs.
        Wait before this game you Charger fans were talking about how great Oliver was and that we wished we had a running back half as good as him. The Broncos spank him and now he is back to being a 4th string scrub. We beat you last year with our JV defense so stop making excuses. And in what reality are you blaming the loss on the refs the first fumble was to close to call but his forearm was down before the ball came out it was moving a little bit before that though. The interception turnover was your players fault for holding not the refs for calling it. The refs also didnt call pass interference on Gates for pushing off during your second TD. Be gracious and accept your butt whooping with class.

            at that point my friends from college were gloating about how close this game was going to be which somehow was in SD's favor
