Ehh.. Denver should have blown them out but we shot ourselves in the foot too many times. We moved the ball easily in the first half and Buckhalter fumbled at Washington's 30 yard line... Orton missed Eddie Royal on a gimme TD... And we had a blown coverage on that punt play. We easily could have been up 3 or 4 TD's in the first half.

Actually after re watching the play,it looked to me like a Denver defender had a shot at the sack,but dropped into coverage and allowed the time to throw the ball.So to add a blown play to a classless,trick play just adds salt to the wound IMO. I cant quite make out his number,but he came through the line damn near untouched.

Well, I personally like trickery and catching teams off guard... you expect to see this stuff late in a game, but not at this point... and that's why it worked. Plus, Denver's STs haven't been stellar... they were at home, needed something positive to happen, so why not take a chance.

Denver needs to get creative on Sunday... I don't care what they do, but if they're going to be rolling out there with Simms, then they need some crazy plays of their own.

And, it's not crap... it's taking advantage of a situation in a game when the other team is the most least suspecting. Washington going for it in that situation is not that much different to me than what the Patriots did late in the game vs the Colts. It's a huge risk, but you're trying to make something positive happen... sometimes it works out.

You don't have to like the play and if dismissing it makes you feel better about it, so be it... it was a ballsy call that could have blown up on them and if they tried it 10 times, it may fail 9... but it worked and put them in a position that coupled with the loss of Orton, allowed them to win the game.

The other aspect of it was that it was at the perfect spot on the field to try something crazy. They were on the 35 yard line, so if you punt the ball, there's a good chance that the ball ends up on the 20 and you only net 15 yards. That's worthless. Similarly, a FG would have been tough from that distance. In the end, it seemed like a crazy play, but wasn't near as risky as one might initially think.

I'll give the Donks their props. Their D is really quite good, (for now) but the injuries are starting to pile up. Ty Law was a has been when he played in KC. They are trying to stop the bleeding right now. There's no excuse for them to get beat by the Skins and I will bet every last bit of my Casino Cash and Sig rights for a month that they won't win the West. San Diego is peaking now and it's obvious that the Broncs are on the decline.
McDaniels ran your beloved team into the ground during training camp. This has been well documented and that is also why they got out to such a fast start, (they were in mid season shape).
Calling the Skins play classless is quite possibly the dumbest fucking thing I've read on here. How was it "Classless" anyway?

I wouldn't say it's "obvious" that Denver is on the decline... they lost at home to the Steelers (defending champs) and @ the Ravens (playoff team from last year now with 5 wins this year). They weren't going to go 8-0 or 9-0...

The Chargers (which everyone is in love with right now) also lost to the Steelers and Ravens earlier in the season. During the Chargers 4 game winning streak, they've defeated the Chiefs, Raiders, slumping Giants and the Eagles.

It's honestly, right about where it should be after 9 games with these teams... and I say should be just based on the way Denver has played. Nobody expected 6 wins the whole season, but they've proved to be better than expected.

The Chargers were supposed to be 6-3 or better at this point... I guess that's why I don't buy into all the doom and gloom. Yes, they should not have lost to Washington and maybe they wouldn't have if Orton had not been hurt, but injuries are a part of the game and they still should have won.

But, they didn't... and now they host the Chargers (a team Denver beat in SD) and it's for sole possession of the division with several games left.

SD has had Denver's number in recent years, but this is not the 2008 team that has failed against SD. A lot rides on Orton's status, but I wouldn't say their on the decline or a fraud at this point... 2 of the 3 losses were against better overall teams. And, more often than not that happens in the NFL.

Many think SD is the better overall team... but, I don't buy into that theory 100%. They've won more games in recent years, but I think Denver has just as much if not more talent on both sides.

It's going to be a fun game...

Brian Dawkins said his practices in Philly were much more physical than the training camp we ran in Denver. I doubt Denver did many things differently than how NE does them.

Ty Law is only our nickle corner. Aside from him shying away from tackles I think he has done a pretty good job.

Denver looks like they are just now getting into the groove on offense. The Redskins actually have a very good defense, but Denver didn't have any problems throwing or running the ball when Orton was back there.

Trick plays aren't limited to fake punts, field goals, and onside kicks. Hell, an argument could be made that play action passing is a "trick play." Reverses. Double reverses. Flea flickers. I bet 50% of all plays are designed to fool the opponent.

The Chargers... none of their wins have come against teams with 6 or more wins. SD has 2 wins against teams with better than .500 records, the Giants and Eagles... the other 4 wins are against KC, Oakland twice and Miami - all under .500.

Not that stats really mean anything, but I'm a big fan of Advanced NFL Stats (http://www.advancednflstats.com/)' efficiency ratings. It's probably not perfect, but it's completely unbiased. Right now, they've got Denver and SD both at .69. So according to that, anyway, they're pretty evenly matched. Certainly SD isn't the runaway winner or anything.

Yeah, I dunno what goes into the ratings (I haven't yet clicked the link), but stats are stats and if you work hard and use enough of them... you could prove just about anything.

But, in this case - I do think the teams are very evenly matched which should say a lot about the direction of both teams. Denver went through an overhaul this past offseason while SD did not, yet right now... they're essentially evenly matched teams.

Hell, I'm cool with that... I'm not expecting much in the playoffs at this point anyway, I would love to see Denver win the division or at the very least advance... that would be a huge step forward (to me) for the organization. If they could actually win a playoff game - double bonus for me, but do I really think this team is built for a deep playoff run and to compete for a SB? Ummm, no... they're good, but I don't see them being that good based on the way they've played the first 9 games.

There are very few things that I find completely infuriating when dealing with armchair QB's. However, one of them is "Well, if you take away the (insert one key play from the game here), we would have won that game."

It's a completely irrelevant, bullshit argument. That play happened, and you didn't stop it. If the Chiefs would have forced Indy to punt JUST ONCE, we would have won. If Lin Elliot wouldn't have missed three field goals, we would have won. If Boise St. wouldn't have run the statue of liberty play, OU would have won. If Napoleon would have had more food and supplies, he would have been able to invade Russia!

It's all coulda, woulda, shoulda. The crux of any losers argument.

It's all coulda, woulda, shoulda. The crux of any losers argument.

hah so what about that win against the bengals?

I'm glad that Tyler made the post... because the bolded part from the first quote was about to be addressed with that specific play against Cincy in mind. :clap:

Many have said "Well, take away that flukish tip pass and Denver loses". Very true, but it happened. Trick plays and lucky plays like the tipped catch to Stokely happen... it's just a part of the game. It doesn't matter to some that Denver dominated Cincy and held them to 0 points for 59 minutes prior to their late score, Denver got lucky and you know what... they did get lucky on that play, but they were winning the game for 59 minutes prior to that Cincy score. But, they won.

Others have said "Take away the two Royal returns vs SD and it's a different story". Well, again... STs are a part of the game... it hurt Denver vs WAS and it helped Denver vs SD and let's not forget that SD also had a TD off of a kick return in that game as well.

It happens... that's why they play 60 minutes and at any time, any player on the field can score. It doesn't matter if it's a designed well executed 'standard' play, a tricked up gimmick play that was drawn up in the dirt on the sidelines or a crazy tipped ball that is caught and taken to the house.

They all count the same...

I even knew it was a fake. Very disappointed by the team in that senario.

Yeah, I was not able to watch the game live... but, when I saw the replay... it was painful to watch the team stand there like a deer on the highway, wondering "are they... wait, is this a ... oh crap" (and it's hard to say this already knowing what was happening).

All coaches that call playaction passes are classless. How dare they try to fool the defense into thinking that they're running. Classless fucks.



But seriously, Denver was just pure shit on that play. Washington lined up, showed that they were going to fake it....and then called a timeout. If your coach was worth a shit, he would have prepared the special teams just incase during that time out.

Then when they lined up again, Washington AGAIN showed that they were going to do some type of trick play. During the time that Washington was shifting, why the fuck didn't the Denver players/coaches call a time out to regroup and plan? They had TWO chances to stop that play, but they didn't. Sucks for them.

That is a pretty cool play.

Honestly, I like the fake field goal shifting into the punt team, that alone seems pretty cool. It seems like that could make a difference on the return team as well, aren't the FG defensive linemen typically big uglies, whereas the punt return team is comprised of medium sized, faster guys like linebackers and fullbacks at the line?

The other aspect of it was that it was at the perfect spot on the field to try something crazy. They were on the 35 yard line, so if you punt the ball, there's a good chance that the ball ends up on the 20 and you only net 15 yards. That's worthless. Similarly, a FG would have been tough from that distance. In the end, it seemed like a crazy play, but wasn't near as risky as one might initially think.

I haven't yet seen the play, but given the circumstances I'd have to concur with DaFace.

I'm still trying to figure out the fan's jersey at about the 25 or 30 second mark. It's got a Redskins logo on the side, but it looks almost like it's a Bills jersey. Or maybe Tiki Barber.

Maybe it's a pro bowl jersey or something. Does the NFC wear blue? Or is this guy incredibly color-blind and got ripped off in Hong Kong?

Yep. Sean Taylor Pro Bowl Jersey.
