Do you guys not remember the Saints game?

We had a hell of a game bounced back from 0-1 a heartbreaking loss, to even up the the record. Now what way will we turn? We we go back to the Panthers vs Giants? Or we will be motivated to kick ass and don't take poo.

I don't think guys are playing around anymore. They mean business. CJ tweeted earlier that today is their day off but the players parking lot was full.

Every player on this team has the motivation to beat John Fox... In saying that, they'll have to beat Peyton Manning and that defense. Another exciting match up.

Keep them under 26 points, and it swings drastically in our favor. Of course that's easier said than done.

And say we get a lead in the game... No lead is safe with Peyton Manning on the other sideline.

Will be an interesting week with many story lines... Looking fwd to this coming weekend

This is a different O and D than we had against NY.

I like our chances moving forward.

I think they know they can turn the season on it's head but there is no margin for error and the only thing to do is man up and play like they know they can and beyond. No more just picking up that paycheck on tuesday; it's time to get it done now and do the improbable.

Well, at least that's what I hope is the mood.

This will be the Broncos 2nd game in a row in different time zones. Last week in Ohio and this week in NC. That jet lag is going to have an affect.

can't rely on goofy voodoo like that, and it looks like the players know it. i love that CJ tweet, it looks like guys are convinced they can win if they put in the work.

as bad as it seemed, i think they were just jacking around after that game. i mean the loss to the bucs was a bit demoralizing, but it was only one loss...away...against a new coaching staff. bad, but understandable.

then they beat the saints...who wouldn't be proud of that accomplishment. i mean the saints had owned them for several years and embarrassed them the last game of the season. tables had been turned. monkey is off the back. we're on top of the world.

then reality hits...
1) we get hit by the giants at home with our pants down in front of the biggest audience this young team has had.
2) the saints that we felt so good about beating....yeah, they suck this year. it wasn't us being good. it was them being really bad.

demoralizing to say the least.

and then giving it everything that you've got the next week in atlanta and still coming up short and realizing that there isn't any one thing that cost the game. it was several things. several people made dumb mistakes that cost the game. they were just one bad play call, one fumble, one missed opportunity from getting a really impressive win. so they felt snakebit. you give it everything you've got and still come out not being good enough.

from then it's been all about getting out of that rut you fell into. you know you just need one game, one moment to get out of that funk. they came so short so many times and it seemed like a repeat of most of the games last year.

i think they finally got that game that pulled them out of that rut yesterday.

i don't think they are going to be fooling around the way that they may have been after the saints win. i don't think their heads are inflated the way they might have been after that win. they know they can't take anything for granted and they are going to have to fight...every one of them to salvage the season that many of us fans think is insalvageable.

i think they remember that game against the saints and, more importantly, what happened after that and i don't think that they are going to let that happen again.

I remember the Saints game, vaguely recall drinkin Gentleman Jack that day. I went & got me another bottle of that for yesterday... Needless to say, I will no longer be consuming beer on Sundays. Or wearing hats with the new logo, as I switched back to last year's 2nd half Sideline cap last week. Dont know if either thing had anything to do with my team winning, but I aint gonna fug it up if it did....


I give rayzor lots of pie... Teh man speaks the truth....

not goofy at all. its a fact its never favorable for the visiting team in different time zones. i dont care who you are. traveling back to back in states with a 2 hour time difference does have an affect.

Chargers found that out the hard way a few weeks ago.

Riveras defenses have had a good history against Peyton....but were gonna have to pressure him which is a hard thing to do considering how quick he gets rid of the ball
