    We ran 66 plays to the lions 45. Controlled the ball for 36.02 of the clock.
    GOT 9 FD's due to penalty. (UNREAL).
    Bledsoe was at 65.2 passing rating- worst game of the year.
    JJ 21 for 92 - 4.4 take out those three stuffs at the goal line and he is over 5 ypc but he also fumbled.
    Barber 15 -53 for 3.5 BUT he got the 2 TDs
    We only got one sack. Dat is credited with the fumble recovery.
    only 2 passes defended- one each by Newman and Roy.
    Harrington was at 86.9 his best of the year, I think. BUt he only averaged 6.8 yds per attempt- so we did ok there- but only one sack and not a whole lot of pressure and he was effective.
    K Jones 12 for 29. We stuffed their run very well. Which we needed to do after the Philthy mess.
    I think Henry is still not 100%. We need him badly. Should have manned R Williams with Newman the whole game and that would have probably shut him out- he was ther only real Detroit offensive threat. 5 for 72 yds. Though K Jones did good receiving the ball.
    Overall a much better performance then Monday- BUT inconsistant is the word to describe the Offense. And a lot of that came down to the O line- AGAIN.

    Bledsoe's worst game was vs the Seahawks. I think he was in the 50s that game.


    He didn't get much help from the OL today. And we face a much better pass rushing team on Thursday. It could get ugly.


    The good news is the Broncos will cover Glenn one on one often and they blitz a lot. So if we pick up their blitz we can hit some big plays on Champ Bailey.

    Burning Champ would be fun- but the Broncs worry me; if we don't get to plummer we are in DEEP DOO DOO.

    And the way our pass rush looked today I bet Plummer has no worries right about now.

    With team like Denver we must be able to control the ball. We had better pressure Plummer or he will pick us apart. The outside LBs must do a better job in containing the run.

    Pressure Plummer and stop the run- that is the name of the game for THursday. I think this might be the toughest game of the year.

    Please, I was at the game and Bledsoe had plenty of times quite a few times where he flat out missed wide open guys. At times he was under pressure.

    I heard he suffered somewhat of minor concussion in the post game shows on local ESPN here. Apparently he did late second quarter. But still he was pretty bad since early second quarter he didn't play well at all and holding onto ball way too long many times.

    So many people were yelling him to get rid of ball when he kept patting the ball.

    We MUST be more innovative rushing the passer or the Bronc's will beat us going away...
    Henry needs to be full speed & starting even though Glenn played well...

    Fergy should start being the much stronger run downs player making Glover more effective rushing the passer when he is in...This change needs to be done NOW!

    Drew was getting pressure pretty much every pass...He was hit alot today...
    The guy takes a hit and is tough, but I find myself yelling "Get rid of it" alot...

    Good points CBz40, I argree, control the clock...
    To win vs the well balanced offensive broncs, I think the D & ST's will need to score as well as us being plus 2 in the turnover margin......

    I agree. I think anyone that says the pass protection was all of Drew's problems is making up excuses for the guy.

    He did not play well. BUT he also got poor protection. 50/50.

    .... Sure because he sees one game where the pass rush was lousy and feels fine I bet...

    Insert any starting QB name in there and that should be the gameplan every week. Denver will hopefully be jet lagged.

    The Broncos are a "much better pass rushing team"? They're 24th in sacks and don't have a player with more than two sacks -- despite facing far more pass attempts than any other team. They have to blitz to create pressure, and we've killed the blitz most of the time. Of all the things to worry about against Denver, their pass rush worries me the least.

    I've noticed this about Denver as well......they looked great today, but then again, they were playing interceptiVerde.

    Denver does not have a poor defense at all. They remind me of us two years ago. Solid in coverage....play it in front, don't give up big plays (not counting TO's 90+ yard TD).

    We'll have our work cut out for us, but this is a very winnable game.

    They're a better pass rushing team then the Lions. At least they looked good earlier in the year (first 2 to 3 weeks). Haven't watched them since then.


    We still have either Tucker or Petitti going up against Pryce. I don't care how many sacks he has, he's a monster.


    Just checked their stats, amazingly they only have 14 sacks. From the game I saw them player earlier int he year, they were in the QBs face all day long. And they did it mostly w/o blitzing. Guess the curse of Ebenezer Ekubust finally took effect.
