I need my streak to keep going..need you to win Denver.
While some may believe this "should be a win"..this is actually a very difficult game. The Saints pretty much replicate the Pats offensively. They have all the problems that we are vulnerable to...I'm not sure how we're going to handle them..
If the Broncos can avoid these early mistakes and slow starts, I'm pretty optimistic.
1. The McGahee dropped pass on 4th & 1
2. His fumble in the red zone
3. DT's fumble
4. The 3rd & 17 conversion by Woodhead
5. Generally poor against the run
....the Pats game could have had a different outcome. Therefore, it sounds like this will be a true test of my belief that the Broncos are getter and we shall see if they play better and have less mistakes.
Maybe I am just drinking orange kool-aid, but I am looking forward to finding out.
This game worries me. This, and just about every game from here on out is a must win for the Saints. They make you pay if you turn the ball over, which could end bad for us. I expect Manning and the offense to have a big day, but I think the running game will be big. Maybe Hillman breaks off a long run? Hopefully. I think McGahee has a big game though.
This is probably our 2nd toughest opponent left on the schedule. Luckily it's at home. After this, excluding the Ravens game, we have a very favorable schedule left. With the Patriots struggling and the Ravens defense a mess right now, (I might be a little optimistic when I say this) we have a chance to take a top 2 seed giving us a bye and at least one home game.
Have to get pressure on Brees and take away the screen. Jimmy Graham might not play, although I expect him to. If Graham is 100% he'll go off for 100+. I'd like to see a big game from Porter, or in other words just don't get beat deep.
As I stated above I expect a big game from the running game, which should eventually lead to DT having a big game deep.
I do expect us to come away with this game at home, but I'd be lying if I said this game doesn't worry me. I'd love to see our first game with no TO's.
Broncos fan since 1989
Saints first in passing offense. 3rd in scoring. 2nd in the league in converting 3rd downs.
It's either going to be a blow out or a shoot-out.
Can we get a Ronnie Hillman break out game please?? I mean seriously..I've been dying to see this kid break out a couple of home run balls..
instead I've been stuck with the checkdown to McGahee...and no hate towards McGahee but man it's hard to watch him with open space and run..
Me and my Boys.
Thank you PSD for your support and prayers.
I think it's going to come down to the wire but we get the win 34-30. We used to be one of the best teams coming off a bye lets keep it going
I think the keys to the game are:
-Sustaining long drives to keep the D fresh and Brees on the bench
-getting pressure with 4 and only 4
-making them earn every 1st down by defending the 20+ yard plays
-crossing our fingers Jimmy Graham cant play
Final score 41-37 Broncos
Saints have no pass rush. Will Smith is playing like garbage. Honestly, we should probably win by 10+. Saints offense is good, but much of their stats are inflated due to defense giving up so many scores. Your D gives up points and you're constantly down, of course you're rated high offensively unless your O is completely inept.
