  1. I think you could argue just as easily that Dilfer held Shula back as an OC.  It's not like Dilfer was a great QB anywhere else, but Shula has been a great OC this year.
  2. What Broncos Fans Are Saying

    Stats only matter to a certain degree.  Someone copied a Broncos poster talking about how lowly ranked our passing attack is, but you don't keep passing when you have a good rushing attack and are ahead in almost all of your games.  That obviously skews the stats.  I'm sure most of our opponents would argue that our passing attack is plenty explosive. Similarly, Denver's offensive stats are pretty anemic, but with their defense, they haven't needed it to do much most games.  If the game Sunday turns out to be low scoring, they may not need a ton out of it then either. Personally, I think it works in our favor that we can win games different ways.  We should have a shot no matter what Sunday.
  3. Pro Bowl replacements

    That would throw off the scheduling balance way too much.  It would mainly just end up hurting the cities/teams of the losing conference by taking away an important revenue-making home game from each city.  More importantly, it doesn't really help the winning conference much either because you're competing against intra-conference rivals for playoff spots, so one extra or one less home game for everybody does nothing.  The only way it would help or hurt a team is if you were playing, say, the AFC East and you happened to draw the Patriots at home instead on the road.  It would really suck for 3 teams in the division to get a home game against the Patriots and for one to have to go to Foxborough. Anyway, I don't think the league should be trying to add any incentives to make the game more competitive because that could lead to unnecessary injuries.  If anything, you want guys taking it easier in this game (which is why some people are saying not to play the game at all).
  4. Forced TO before play clock expired

    We weren't really doing a hurry-up because the play clock ran all the way out.  The frustrating thing is that Arizona seemed to be intentionally delaying their substitution to run our play clock down.  The officials are supposed to give a "reasonable amount of time" for the defense to substitute, but Arizona had guys jogging on and off and back on looking like they didn't know who was supposed to be on the field, which was probably intentional.  It seemed to take more than 10 seconds off the play clock, and that is way too long for a "reasonable" substitution.
  5. Official: Panthers to wear Black Jersey for SBL

    There seems to be a discrepancy on that because technically the all blacks aren't an "alternate jersey" but rather an alternate uniform. I know they've already announced black and silver - so it's a moot point - but I'd still like to know if the all black was an option.
  6. Yeah, I was a little disappointed with those.  I mean, they're a fine souvenir, but they weren't conducive to the game experience at all.
  7. 89 Panther 4 Life! Bottom Line

    I think that's from 2012 because Joe Adams' jersey is in the background.
  8. I definitely felt like the lead-up to the game was a bit muted as well.  I thought everyone in the stadium would be going bonkers well before the game started, but it felt like everyone was pacing themselves.  I do think a lot of it was shock and just trying to take in and relish the experience.   I have to say that there wasn't one moment in this game where the entire crowd was as wild as Luke's pick 6 last week - the one last night was well after the game was decided - but I thought the crowd's intensity swelled as the game went on.  It definitely felt like a party from about halfway through the third quarter on, whereas last week the crowd seemed about as tight as the team did in the second half.
  9. What irritates me

    It took them 2 games just to score on us.  They certainly didn't have the blueprint the first time around.  Guess what?  Denver only gets one shot against us.
  10. Why did we go for 2?

    We should have gone for 2 after Cam's TD to make it 33-7.  They weren't kicking field goals anymore at that point, so being up by 28 would've been much better than 27.  Glad it didn't matter.
  11. Roll Call for NFC Championship Sunday

  12. Maximize Your Noise

    This reminds me that I have a small plastic megaphone somewhere that I'm sure I got from some sporting event.  I may have to dig that one up for Sunday.

  14. todays practice tweets

    It's definitely the defensive signals that they're working on.  That's the downside to playing at home, and it may have actually cost Seattle in our earlier game there.
