Well, at least Denarius Moore finally had a good game..heh..
It was quite a massacre..wasn't it, Nation? Sometimes you simply have to shrug your shoulders and say "Peyton F@#cking Manning". Hey, it works for me! His experience and talent is that obvious. Time and time again, Frankenstein has burned the entire NFL with his knowledge of the Defensive Lines, Linebackers and Defensive backs. He misdirects, confuses and flusters the defense with ease on a consistent basis. Will that fact ever be inaccurate? Not for quite a while.. I believe if you give him more hits to his back as Lamaar Houston did, you MIGHT have a chance. Otherwise, the Manning Butcher will continue to cut up your defense like tender meat.
Simply put? We're not ready to take on the NFL elite teams. We are still a young, competitive team in Jedi training and will continue to be so until we find a way to cover, run and block more consistently.
Offense- Terrelle Pryor continues to impress. He just needs help! I still can't believe we didn't have the Line push necessary to get Darren Mcfadden rushing the way we know. This massive problem also showed it's ugly head against the Colts. I also see it as an ongoing issue inherited from last year. Yes, I know we have injuries that plague us this year (Watson, Vedheer) but that's no excuse to play like you're in the little leagues. Man the f#@ck up, Line! Bring intensity and stop making undisciplined mistakes, Khalif Barnes! Learn to snap the ball right EVERYTIME Stefen Wisniewski! Hold your blocks Tony Pashos! This entire unit will be responsible for making or missing the playoffs. If we don't improve or get the necessary help (Tight ends blocking perhaps) ..we're stuck in the mud for the 2013 season. I'm glad Marcel Reece finally got involved (4 receptions for 45 yards, 1TD) but I still would like to see more production. I think the Coaches still need to realize the full potential of this beast. I think a few more carries might please the Lord of Sith. Maybe he can get through the gaps easier with brute strength. Denarius Moore? ( 6 receptions for 124 yards,1 TD) Welcome to the show! Do you think we can finally put you back on Fantasy leagues? Time will only tell. I think the 'funk' you have currently been in has been all mental and confidence issues. I also believe the Coaches might be responsible for not making you more comfortable.. Greg Olson continues to lack creativity and bring excitement to the Offense. 1st down: basic run 2nd down: run for a loss 3rd down: we're passing far while they blitz! Mr. Olson, please pass to set up the run. With our recent Line troubles? There might not be any other option to move the Offense. Perhaps the O will improve by utilizing Darren Mcfadden with more screens, outs and delay patterns. One of the few great plays was calling in the McFadden TD pass- WOW! We need more of that and less of the boring, routine plays! Make it so or be Force choked, Coach!!!
Defense, Hey..what can you do?!?! I say again, it's Peyton f##$cking Manning!!! I think our team really needs to work on executing at a higher level regarding hurry up offenses. Down after down, we were not lined up right and seemed out of position. Kevin Burnett and Chuck Woodson did an ok job with tackles, but we simply needed more drive stops. There also wasn't any consistent pressure on the Quarterback. Lamaar Houston had a great sack-fumble play, but the front 7 had little else to show for Monday night Football. Let's learn from this and be better prepared when the Donkeys come to Oakland, shall we?
Summary: DENVER -- Peyton Manning slapped his hands together five, six, seven times and barked out the signals. A few seconds later, Wes Welker was all alone, cradling the quarterback's latest touchdown pass. All part of another impeccably crafted victory for Manning and the Denver Broncos, who rolled over the Oakland Raiders 37-21 Monday night. Denver's 127 points lead the league and are 31 more than second-place Green Bay. This was Denver's 14th-straight regular-season win, tying the franchise record set in 1998 when the Broncos won their second Super Bowl.
"You see flashes of good things," Manning said. "When we're executing and not making mistakes, we can go the distance. We can go 80 yards, take advantage of a short field."Manning went 32 for 37 for 374 yards and set a few more records while outwitting the overmatchedRaiders (1-2). Manning's 12 touchdown passes are one more than Tom Brady's old record for the first three games, set in 2011. Manning still has yet to throw an interception, which matches a record held by Michael Vick, who also threw 12 touchdowns before his first pick in 2010. "He's started where he left off last year and improved on that," Broncos coach John Fox said. "We've brought in some guys who have helped us. He's an incredible player as far as the way he prepares and communicates things to his teammates." As much as the numbers in the latest win, it was Manning's deciphering of the Oakland defense that made jaws drop in this one. His first touchdown, a 2-yard pass to Eric Decker, came after a subtle play action fake that froze the defense and left Decker uncovered in the back of the end zone. Manning's targets for the next two touchdowns -- Welker and Julius Thomas -- didn't have defenders within three steps of them when they caught the passes. Wide open. A sure sign that Manning had diagnosed the defense he was looking at well before the snap and knew exactly where he wanted to go with the ball. "All of them did a good job competing," Manning said of his receivers. "We knew we were in a challenge, because Oakland has good cover corners. Mix up their coverage well. Guys did a good job getting open versus man, and finding holes in the zones. All of them did a good job running with the ball after the catch."
And Manning's prediction that Chris Clark would be a seamless replacement for injured Ryan Clady as his blindside protector didn't exactly pan out. Lamarr Houston beat Denver's new starting left tackle badly in the third quarter for a sack and strip that halted a drive that had reached the Raiders 13.OK, so the evening wasn't perfect. There were the five incompletions, though two of them were flat-out drops and another two hit receivers in the hands, but would have been difficult catches. The Broncossettled for three field goals and had to punt once. Rookie Montee Ball lost another fumble. Denver came a field goal short of reaching 40 points for the third straight game. But Denver was ahead 30-7 at that point. "Those are things we have to iron out," Manning said. And, really, any complaints about Denver's offense seem like quibbling given what's gone on so far this season. The record for touchdown passes in a season is 50, set by Brady in 2007. If he keeps up this pace, Manning will throw 64. The Raiders offense made one big play before the game got out of hand, when Terrelle Pryor (19 for 28 for 281 yards), who left the game late with a concussion, hit Denarius Moore in the middle of the field andBroncos defensive backs Duke Ihenacho and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie whiffed on the tackle. Moore went 73 yards to cut Oakland's deficit to 17-7 in the second quarter.As for Denver's biggest rival, the Raiders -- since Manning arrived, the Broncos have outscored them 100-40 in three runaway wins. All of which simply gave Manning the ball back more quickly. On the first play of the next drive, he hit Decker, who spun away from his defender for a 61-yard gain. Three plays later, the Broncos were up 17 again after Manning found Thomas on an out route for a 13-yard score. The Broncos defense, now halfway through Von Miller's suspension and playing again without injuredChamp Bailey, allowed only 9 yards on the ground to Darren McFadden, who came into the game leading the league with 223 yards from scrimmage. McFadden did, however, throw a touchdown -- a 16-yard connection to Marcel Reece on a halfback option -- and get a late rushing score. NOTES: Broncos DBs Duke Ihenacho and Tony Carter each left with ankle injuries. ... DL Robert Ayers, who took the starting spot vacated when Elvis Dumervil left, had two sacks for Denver. ... Pryor had nine rushes for 36 yards to reach 198 yards on the ground this season. Only a few more days until Sunday, Oakland! Let's smash the Redskins and keep them winless! RG3 still remains as one of the better Quarterbacks, but there Defense ranks as one of the worst in the NFL. Let's attack fast, hit like Bulls and defend our house!!! Go Raiders!!! See you on the Dark Side!! DaRtH RaidER
