Say it with me ...manning is the Greatest regular season quarter back of all time.... meanwhile if seattle comes out in the second half and scores denver should be put on suicide watch..

C'mon man, they have legal pot to get them through their blues. Wait, so does Seattle fans, pot all around.

The funny thing is, I think San Fran would actually be making Denver look even worse. They matchup even better than Seattle against Denver.

 

The only difference is I think Denver would have a TD maybe, but SF would probably get TD's on every single drive. Kaepernick would be running around like a gazelle.

This is not the Bronco team I've seen all year. What happened? I didn't expect Denver to play this badly; maybe they'll rally in the second half..or maybe not. I hate to see Manning struggle so badly, but on the other hand, I'd like to see John Elway's reaction.

 

Not impressed with halftime at all. I'm hoping this game becomes more exciting now.

Defense happened.

 

Their offense is being outplayed. Nobody is doing their job better than the players defending them. That includes Peyton, who has thrown some costly INT's while hit instead of taking the sack.

As for the worst player on offense, that goes to Robert Ayers right now. He is consistently getting beat all night long. Peyton still needs to take the sack, though, and recognize the right side is a sieve.

 

-Special Teams continue to suck.

-Their own defense can't generate turnovers, per the norm.

-Their coaching staff is mediocre. That's being kind.

 

-Boneheaded penalties/lack of discipline. See coaching staff. They're one of the most penalized teams in the league.   So is Seattle, but they make up for itwhile Denver doesn't. They push the line and don't get flags when they should, and they're coached that way. The benefits of their style outweigh the penalties.

actually I though Denver was getting a break not playing SF.

    • Massive deal. Billions of dollars to the local economies inbound from each of these events. The Rumble is my favorite night of the year, so I’m most excited for that one. There’s nothing better than a well done Rumble.    I’ve said since the day it opened that I don’t know why WWE hasn’t run WM at the stadium. Coming in the north entrance and seeing the ring down below and a full house across the way is going to be a killer camera shot.      Hopefully they open the roof for SummerSlam. 
    • Shaw did do a very poor job of recruiting his last few years which infuriated a good part of the fan base.  They were happy to see him retire early, though he left with a very generous golden parachute which made many fans even angrier.      As for the Hogan years, yes they were very good.  But not primarily due to Hogan who was a nice college level quarterback.    Hogan was supported by (A) Christian McCaffrey and (B) the most talented Stanford recruits in school history.  Including an OL with two future 1st round draft picks on it plus other very good talent.  And (C) some of the best defensive players Stanford ever recruited.   The team was as loaded as Stanford can get.  Hogan just had to be good, there was rarely pressure for him to be great.    Someday….  (If anyone is interested)   Perhaps this off-season, I’ll tell you some great Stanford Sports stories.  The school is an odd mix of strange decisions concerning football and other sports plus some decisions that are both good and infuriating.  Most days it’s easy to be a Stanford fan.  But somedays the school makes it so hard.   Harder than they need to.       
    • 3-14 mostly cause AR is still a question mark. I do like what I did see but until he proves he can make it a season, no one knows. So I’m setting bar low
    • They didn't win a game that AR played the majority of snaps. I am not even factoring in his injury risk. Even assuming he's healthy, he's basically repeating his rookie year. While everybody would agree his upside is higher than Minshew's, there's still nothing definitive to point to AR automatically equaling more wins.    Also, as you mentioned, the Colts fundamentally stayed the same, meanwhile, AFCS teams got stronger, especially HOU and TEN. TLaw beat both Minshew and AR last year. Stroud is now in year 2. Levis will be in year 2 (and if we think AR will make a jump, we have to consider that Levis could as well).   Yes, they won 9 games last year with Minshew. But their schedule isn't the same nor is it easier. So it's weighing the impact of AR returning + some young player development) vs. a much tougher schedule of QBs + offseason improvements for other teams (in most cases) + some young player development.   When I compare what happened last year to what they are facing this year, I don't see where they are supposed to make up the ground in the win column. I suppose there could be a rash of QB injuries again. But barring that, the win improvement has to come against good-great teams, which is a tall order.  
    • History says you win with a great qb or a great defense.  A great d hasn't won in a long time.   What does that leave??
