    Man, watched that whole NE at Donks game. NE had them but just couldn't close the door. Donks and Orton actually look solid. They aren't 5-0 for nothing. NE had it's chances but just let Donks have their way. I was hoping NE would say "Heads" on the toss but dude said "Tails" and it ended up Heads. We got our work cut out for us next Monday Night guys. We HAVE to find a way to win that game. If Donks beat us and go 6-0 it looks like curtains for us!

    They do, you have to give them credit for their wins. Chargers can still beat them, but they will have to play defense, and prevent the Broncos from having the ball as long as the Steelers did.

    5-0*

    The Bengals are 4-1*

    That being said, even despite all the luck going their way, they do look legit.

    Basically, we have to come up with some kind of running game or Nolan will have that defense keying off on Rivers the entire night. Dawkins has rejuvanated that secondary, and it has shown. There are some holes that we can exploit, but the offensive line needs to give us time to do it (prays).

    Defense will be another story. we have one of the worst defenses in the entire league. We can't stop the run, and we still struggle against the pass though teams simply don't find it necessary to throw it very often against us. The Donks' offensive line is a top five unit right now, and we're really going to need some unique blitzing schemes to get pressure on Orton. No one has done it consistently this year, and it is the reason why Orton has looked halfway decent. If he gets all day to throw like we gave Ben in Pitt, then we will be giving up twenty plus points.

    I'd like to be optimistic, but we have a bottom five defense and one of the worst rushing attacks in the league. We're playing against a team with one of the best offensive lines and a defense that is playing with confidence throughout every level. We'll need a great gameplan to pull this one out.

    I dont think we have to become the #1 defensive unit or anything near that. We just have to force some punts. More than the 2 we did against Pittsburgh.

    We flat out have to play the game of the season next Monday night or it's curtains. Can they dig down deep and do it? I really hope so and am of course rooting for it. Am I CONFIDENT they can do it? Frankly no. But dammit, that is going to be a season defining game, no doubt. TIME TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP CHARGERS! (Time for that players only meeting again.....)

    They don't have to play like a #1 D (although it wouldn't hurt)

    Denver's offense isn't their strength.

    Although, they can't play like that swiss cheese D either. That D would lose to a Pop Warner team.

    I think we saw the Pats struggle out there today. Brady was completely off his game and missed sure TD passes to both Moss and Welker. Still, the Donkeys barely pulled out a win. These Donkeys are pretenders. We'll need to play them tough, like we would need to against anyone.

    If we show up, we beat this team. If not, well just about anyone could beat us. Especially if we start like we did in Pitsburgh.

    Keep in mind, as long as we can figure out how to win both games against the Donkos, we make up most of the 2.5 games we are behind them. Win those two games and as many as they do the rest of the season and we win the AFC West.

    Exactly, plus after we sweep the Donkeys, we'll have the tie breaker.

    Do you have a reading comprehension problem? Did you read anything about luck in his post? Brady did not have a good night and did miss a couple of easy TD passes. And winning in overtime is barely beating them. I expect we will have to play our best game of the season so far to win but we can win. So if you are going to start talking smack, take it to the smack talk area please.

    we may have only had one sack but we had several hits on brady and that throws of the QB. you can claim that brady had a bad game. but what I saw was denver beating a "superbowl contender" and orton threw the ball better then brady. chargers be afraid, be very afraid.

    the chargers have nothing for me to fear as a denver fan. the only thing you guys can do is throw the ball, thats it.

    The Broncos are an unimpressive 5-0. The Pats, Cowboys and Bengals gave those games away. We'll take care of business next week and the rest of the season. Broncos fans rejoice now, because reality will smack you in the face next Monday night.

    I think Philip Rivers will still have a great day lighting up that Denver defense, no matter how good it is and of course we will struggle to get anything going with the run. I actually think that we'll see a more motivated, surprising defense on Monday that will not only effectively prevent Denver from establishing a powerful run game but also have Orton throwing it away more often than he'd like to.

    Bah .. they have a decent pass rush .. But like week before vs Dallas, they had several huge holes in pass defense. Brady completely missed Welker in the last couple of minutes which would have been a TD. Contain their pass rush, this is a very beatable Bronco team.
