    I donít think we need to criticize a defensive unit that dominates for 95 percent of the game while their offense struggles for 95 percent of the game.

    You like to use the word ďcherry pickingĒ so why donít you apply it to your dogmatic argument here.

    Wake and be a little more honest with yourself rather than acting and looking like a fool just for the sake of arguing, because it actually shows us just how much we control your attitude here in the Denver Broncos Smack section!

    Now let that sink in!
    I can and do blame them for the last drive

    We pinned them with one To on their 10 line

    And they marched right down with ease and kicked the game winner

    We put the game in the 29th ranked offenses hand to win, they couldnt , but we still had the lead

    So we put that lead in the 4th ranked defenses hand and lost that lead

    Yes if our putrid offense coulda scored more we win

    Again football is a game of moments

    At that moment we had the lead and gave it to the defense to stop them

    So youíre going to hold a very successful defense to ridiculous expectations however a failing GM in John Elway should get another season to get it right?

    Today we were talented enough to compete and had a chance to win. At some point the coaches need to be aggressive and Von gets paid $20 mil a year , heís got to make that tackle on Brissett.

    Perhaps he doesnít make that tackle out of fear of drawing a roughing the passer call.

    Weíve lost two games this season on two very bad roughing the passer calls already.

    If this was 2018, Iím sure Von drops Brissett very easily even if Derek Wolfe launches his body into Von during the play.

    Thatís true, it looked like he was falling down.

    Derek Wolfe made a good point after the game, he said in 2015 they won a lot of games like this because they made stops and this year they were barley missing them.
    I think we deserve to be 2-6 but the team has been in games and we are close to being a 5-3 team. Thatís the hope I have is we can build off that and by the end of the year star winning some of these close games.
    Some posters are comparing us to Miami and thatís a joke, our team is competing, the next step is closing games out.

    You know itís not their fault, they are still elite playing under these ridiculous rules. Trading them will not improve this team any if at all.

    Also We shouldnít even be talking about barely losing games if we would had just put the right coaches in place to coach the players that we do have.

    Now Iím not going to criticize Elway here however you canít take the best power blocking offensive line architect in the league and then give him a zone blocking rookie offensive coordinator to work with. They are two completely different styles that require different types of players.

    Itís just not smart and good things are not going to happen. To make matters worse they put a statue of a quarterback in there. Itís almost as if the front office was deliberately trying to set them up to fail.

    Maybe itís johns attempt to get rid of Eliss but I donít know how and Iím still trying to figure out how it is going to work!

    Iím crazy and I actually think we are a few plays from being 5-3. And thatís with our offense not contributing. Scangerello hopefully responds to Flaccoís criticism.

    Maybe but Flacco does limit Scangarellos play book with his Immobility. There is a reason for everything and hopefully in this case it is more due to Flaccoís immobility than it is Scangarello being afraid.

    At least this way thereís hope for Lock and Allen. However I still believe Scangarello is far from where we need him to be as a reacting play caller.

    no, im assigning blame where it goes

    the defense is very good since week four...no doubt the reason we have the two wins we do have, the reason we aint getting blowed out every week

    but at the end of the game we had a lead, we had the colts pinned at their 10, with one TO needing at least 60 yards...stop them we win

    you keep crying about hypothetical points...sure if we scored 56 points a game our defense wouldn't have to stop any body

    but the fact remains...with 1:41 on the clock Denver had the colts pinned down with 1 TO and needing to drive the field to win

    and the defense allowed it...for the third time this season

    The first seven games were basically seven large books of do's and don'ts for Scange to absorb and I understand there's a learning curve but come on.

    I wonder if he studies films of the other 31 NFL teams to LEARN and pick up a few tips and apply to the Broncos offensive game plan.

    I realize Flacco is not by any means a Russell Wilson but there has to be some plays he can execute that are well above elementary level even with the weak offensive line.
