that didnt cost us the game.  they were in field goal range with time to spare.  that time out really didnt matter

It absolutely did matter. They dont get 5 plays off if theres only 15 seconds on the clock. Even if everything played out as it did just with less time, they're kicking a 55+ yard FG. The other issue is that the Colts didnt use the best kicker in the league to pooch it down inside the 15 on that kickoff. No reason to take the touchback when you're kicking from the 50. 

 

Really bad coaching down the stretch. Really bad.

I say we trade whatever it takes to move up for Myles Garrett. I cant stand this crap man. We have to bring in some superstar players on defense. Throw some money at some big time players this offseason. If they're not tagged and we bring in Chandler Jones, Jamie Collins, Stephon Gilmore, and Myles Garrett on defense....We wont be suffering through this kinda crap anymore. And get rid of bums like Cole, DQ, Jones probably, Butler, etc.

Cole had our only sack today.......

Smith didn't get that much. We could have mad it work. I mean all offseason everyone knew we needed a couple freak EDGE rushers and a CB to pair with Davis. What do we do???? Sign Robinson who's a solid number 3.nickle, but a great team needs a better number 2 corner. Then we literally did NOTHING to fix the pass rush.

We gave Robinson a 3yr/13.5m deal, while Smith got 4yr/38m & Jenkins got 5yr/62.5m. Those are both way out of our budget and would've made it tough to fill holes are injuries pop up. I agree with the pass rush. I was hoping to get a talented EDGE rusher in the draft, but I think Maggit and some of the other rookies could develop into very good players.

We'll have plenty to spend this coming offseason. Even if Maggitt has a promising rookie year we need to bring in one of Chandler Jones or Melvin Ingram, and draft a OLB early as well. Or sign Demarcus Ware to go along with Jones/Ingram. Chandler Jones and a 1st round EDGE rusher to go along with Mathis, and maybe Maggitt would take care of the issue. I would literally draft like 3 EDGE rushers in the first 5 rounds next year.

Honestly it's better to be on offense on the last 2 minutes than defense. Look at all the examples over the recent years.

I doubt we'd be able to afford either of them, let alone both of them (if their respective teams even let them test the waters). Ware is old and would want more money than he's currently receiving, based on his past few year in Denver vs his last few in Dallas, if he even wants to leave Denver. Pass rushers are best acquired via the draft and I don't disagree that 2-3 in the first 5 rds would help.

Someone has to get pressure up the middle of our defense. We also need to create turnovers. You can only coach so much. I'll say it again that it's up to the players. As guys return our defense will get better. I'm not upset about the results of this game.

    • Lattimore or Humphrey at #15 or Tre' White in a trade down. Or Sidney Wilson if he drops to the 3rd. Or Jourdan Lewis as a slot CB.
    • A really, really incredible party.   Or Zach Brown for 3/4 years.   Fine with either option.
    • Domestic abuse is learned behavior and not a maturity issue.  That's why abusers keep returning back to it even when million dollar careers are on the line.  It takes the right people in your life to help you stop it.  Remember, he was a known public figure and he was in public with witnesses and yet nothing told him not to do this.  Something in his upbringing should have said to just push her hard or yell at her, but he crosses a social norm line by punching her in the face and didn't care who saw it.  Privately people mess up and are ashamed because they know it's wrong and don't want others to know what the did, but he didn't even care about that.  It's amazing in every aspect and that's why I think he wasn't taught correctly and that he will not quit this easily.  
    • No. Just no. Stop it.   Take any of Reddick, Peppers, McKinley or a trade down at that point.   But for the love of all that is holy, stop mocking us Dalvin Cook.
    •   I'd have loved to get another complimentary pass rusher like Jordan WIllis. But there are holes like CB#2, CB#3 and WILL ILB where we don't really have any legitimate starters.   We can grab a pass rusher first round next year.   Appreciate the feedback
