    The Broncos are coming off a bye week, so I'll definitely be interested in seeing how the have adjusted their D to stop the run.

    I heard on NFLN that the Broncos had 9 guys up in the box at times before the bye, and still couldn't stop the RB until he got 6-8 yard gains.

    If true, that is REALLY sad.

    I know they're playing a team that can actually run the ball, but they're playing the run SO hard that the rest of the field is totally open.

    Broncos are stacking 8 in the box regularly. If they do that to us, Favre is gonna kill em.

    Denver isn't that good. Pitt's O-line is having major pass protection problems.... something we don't have to worry about.

    Denver worries me. Pittsburgh's defense is the best in the league, and Cutler tore them apart.

    We have yet to go against a QB with the velocity that Cutler has. And while Big Ben had a Big Day, he didn't have to go against Champ Bailey. We will.

    Velocity is useless against our D when you have no mobility to escape our constant pressure. Cutler, while he did throw for 248 yds and 3 TDs, also threw 2 picks. He's actually thrown at least one pick in every single game that he's played this year.

    Cutler doesn't scare me.

    Pitt ran the ball 26 times for 99 yds. Not exactly attacking the team's weakness. Guarantee MM will.

    Only thing that scares me about Denver this Monday night is me getting the crap kicked outta myself by drunk, bitter from the loss, toothless Broncos fans while I'm at Mile High.

    If running the ball 26 times for 99 yards isn't attacking Denver's weakness, what is? Denver is dead last in rush defense, and 26 carries is more than any of our RB's have ever gotten.

    GB is a passing team, and it's not going to be easy with the speed Denver has with their front seven. Their secondary is even more dangerous when Champ Bailey comes back.

    And Bly--I don't remember a game where Favre hasn't thrown one directly to him.

    Pittsburgh is a running team. 26 carries isn't a lot for a team that specializes in it. It's kinda average. I'm just saying you gotta run the ball more when it's your biggest strength and their biggest weakness.

    With apologies to our resident Steelers fan, I'm quite pleased the Broncos pulled it out tonight. I'd rather the Packers played a decent team fat and contented off of a win over a contender than a decent team desperate to turn around a 2-4 record.

    Remember- Denver was coming off the bye week, and playing @ home. Next week it's gonna be us coming off the bye, and we've had all this time to rest & prepare for them. As good a time as any to take a win...

    Tough loss for both of us PackinSteel. I despise seeing Shannahan run out to shake another coaches hand after he wins. He is a cheating, scumbag-ish, under achieving, over rated head coach. He always has a smug *** look on his face.

    He has kind of a.... "I deserve a punch in the face" pompous look on his face when he runs out to center field to shake hands after a win.

    I am sure he is a nice guy, and has a wonderful family. I just do not like him 16 Sundays a year.

    I'm surprised that the Broncos have three straight home games. A rarity in today's NFL.

    I happy that the Steelers decided to try and attack the Broncos D with their passing game, it should give our coaches some footage to look at, and get a better game plan in place.

    Dre Bly is nursing an injury, and so is their top CB Champ Bailey. That should bode well for us coming off the bye.

    Scheffler may pose some problems if they line him over Poppinga, but I saw Scheffler lining over the WLB mostly this game, and I think Hawk can hang with him. I think Scheffler may have gotten injured, so just more positive news for us.

    Also, Bob Sanders is a disciple of Jim Bates. He should be able to give McCarthy a heads up about what his friend and former Packers' DC will likely be doing/thinking on Monday.

    I would hope K-Rob could come into play for us. If we can get the run game going, and force the Broncos to play 8 in the box, 4 and 5 WR sets will thrive. There isn't a dime back (IMO) in this league that can cover K-Rob.

    When thinking of this, you didn't happen to review Buffalo, Dallas, New England, San Fransisco or Tennessee schedules huh? You could even throw in Miami and New York Jets in there because they play three home games in a row too, but after playing two home games in a row they have a BYE followed by a home game.




    But I bet you knew that.

    Does any one else think the Broncos coach looks like he could be Davy Jones' (the monkees) brother?

    I don't know about that but the Saints coach looks like the guy that killed Kennedy.

    A lot.

    Heh, believe it or not the fact that the Broncos were on a bye week slipped my mind at the time of that post. I was also working on my fantasy team in another window, and was contemplating whether or not to drop Turner to pick up another RB. Turner's stats against the Broncos were the main thing from making me drop him, and I thought that game had been last week, not two weeks ago like it really was.

    I've brought up that the Broncos were on a bye week in a couple of other posts before, but oddly enough it just slipped my mind when I wrote that post last night.

    Not sure what's with the attitude, but meh whatever.
