View Full Version : Observations of an unbiased observer.....

Well kind of unbiased since both teams are enemies.....
<LI>Bad things happen for Elvis when he is on the move (flushed from the pocket)...Seems like most of his INT's happen this way.... He looks great within the pocket, but pressure up the middle bothers him...
<LI>Sly needs to learn more routes... the stop and go, fade and curl patterns will take him only so far.
<LI>As I thought (sorry Chaplain), your running game was nonexistent...though that may because Denver is strong up the middle with Pryce, Wilson and Jenkins... Off tackle play anyone???
<LI>Kudos to your coaching staff for watching the Rams game tape & seeing that Denver was weak up the seams (something Oakland failed to do!).... TG killed them!!
<LI>Your DT's definately lead the NFL in penalties.... but Hicks is very impressive.
<LI>Denver did not exactly get any homecooking with the calls.(For a change)
<LI>Denvers offensive playcalling was horrible down the stretch.... they had no reason to pass up 5 points when they were moving the ball on the ground.
<LI>The red pants gots to go! You looked like Iowa St out there....I think your first TD drive was effective because Denver could not stop laughing...hehe
<LI>Did anyone see Joe Horn get absoutely clocked today?... tough kid...
<LI>Great victory... your guys are finally playing with emotion again.... its a shame they will be slapped down in 3 weeks....

The Raidas will get spanked at ARROWHEAD - Last year was a fluke. The Raidas as USUAL are overrrrrrrated! The RED pants look great. Al Davis STILL $UCKS! *grin*

As far as "not getting any home cookin", there were a lot aof no-calls on Buckley & Crockett, plus a BS defensive holding against McGlockton on the Anderson fumble. Maybe you were watching the Faider game at the time.

I have to agree with MI Chief fan. There were a lot of PI calls that didn't go against the Broncos. My girlfriend was watching the game with me and she's a big Broncos fan (yeah I'm working on her) and she even complained about how bad the calls were in favor of the Donkeys.

Great points jq

I agree about SlyMo. I am still wondering if that was a bad pass by Grbac down the right sidelines when Morris had beaten the CB deep....he looked over his left shoulder for the ball and it was delivered over his right. Anyone know if that was a bad pass, or if SlyMo screwed up. He certainly looked like he should have been able to adjust.

It always seems like if Elvis has time the ball is well thrown, but as you said, when someone puts pressure up the middle and he hurriedly tries to lift the ball over them, it's up for grabs. That 4th qrtr INT was a perfect example.

Our running game has absolutely stunk in 3 of the 4 games. Why? Something will have to be done. Kudos to the coaching staff for that long gainer by TRich in the 4th though, using Drayton as a lead blocker.

The Chiefs will get tougher and tougher now that they are back in the hunt. What a win!

Iowa St! LOL.

Sun affected Sly being able to see & adjust on that ball.

Thanks Phil. I couldn't hear commentary at the sports bar (too many Bucs fans at the next TV....heheheee), so I had no idea other than what I saw.
