View Full Version : Denver is 1 game behind Oakland...
12-03-2000, 03:33 PM
Well, I have to say that I'm shocked that Oakland lost to the Steelers. Congrats on the call, Broncofan, but I believe it was more 'homer hot sports opinion' than logic on your part... nonetheless, good call.
Denver kicked the Saints' butts today, but rather than acknowledge that fact a lot of you will focus on the "bad calls". I saw 2 calls that Denver got away with, one being the late hit out of bounds on Jenkins, I believe ... and the other *could* have been the one on Romo, but I think he was legit.
Mike Anderson is the real deal, and Denver had the perfect offensive plan... keep it away from Gus!
So, Denver is a legit player in the playoff hunt and they are only 1 game behind Oakland in the race for the division.
Denver has games vs Seattle, KC and SanFran... the only possible loss is at KC. An 11 win season would be great for this club and it would be crazy to imagine them winning the West with all that has happened to them... but Oakland just may let it happen.
(raising a beer) ... "Here's to the Broncos!"

clicking a glass with ya Mile High...the Broncos looked good today, some fans are still counting the votes (bad officiating, yada yada, yak yak)but it looks final to me....the Chiefs game will be their superbowl and I expect them (the Chiefs) to pull it out. The Raiders still have Carolina and the Jets. It's good to see the offensive line dominating....and no, I didn't see ONE single cut block on any of the touchdown runs. (tho I am sure someone saw NUMEROUS)

Hey MileHigh (ya stinkin' Bronco fan)....I was also surprised that Pittsburg won today. Not because Jano missed the go-ahead FG, or even the 4th down boo-boo as they manuevered for the final FG. Was suprised me is that the Steelers took that game, they won it outright. They stopped our run game, forced two Wheatly fumbles, ran on us, and contained Gannon.
So, Denver is now a half-game back of Oakland. I hope thats enough of a threat to spark the Raiders to win these last 3 games. One stumble and Denver (gag!) gets the division. Go Chiefs!

F Denver.... I hope we play them again this year.

HB... sorry about the results today http://www.chiefsplanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Gosh Raider fans, and Bronco fans, what does it feel like to be talking playoffs this season. We Chief fans are starting to forget the thrill of these conversations, with the Cunningham era. Good luck to both of you. That ought to start the fairweather ranters. But before anyone starts, I have followed the Chiefs longer than most of you have been around. So stow that BS, this team is one of the most uninspired group of underachievers I have witnessed in 35 years. The 70's and 80's teams fought hard every game, not just a few of them, and I thought we had some lousy coaching then too. But at least they tried. Take five or six guys off this team, and you would have none that cared.

For the sake of the AFC West and my absolute, un-yielding disgust for anything having to do with the raiders I have to say, as much as it kills me -go donx- (fart sound)<P>
12-03-2000, 07:28 PM
Raider fans better hope they don't see the Donks again. Much like Tennessee had the Jags number last year, Denver has Oaklands this year.

Bob Dole has to say that Anderson is, indeed, impressive.
Bob Dole also has to say that he's watched almost every New Orleans game this season, and the defense that showed up today wasn't the usual fundamentally sound defense.
Bob Dole was just disappointed that CBS stopped coverage before we got to witness Jim Haslett kicking Jeff Triplette's a$$.

I'm simply amazed with Anderson's performance yesterday... as well as the 4 other 180+ yd performances.
Anderson now has 1222 rushing yds and 11 TDs compared to Jamal Lewis' numbers of under 1100 yds and only 4 TDs... hopefully, this ends the 'rookies of the year' debate.
I'm really impressed with Denver. Their defense is still weak, but I'm hoping they can win at least one playoff game - especially if it is the Raiduhs. :D
It would really warm my heart to take the division away from Oakland. This was a game they could have easily lost, and they ran away with the "W". That says something about this team. I just hope they keep the momentum rolling.

MHM, you are one of the coolest Donx fans on this board, and I respect your opinions. But the bottom line is, Donx win. And where do you go? Straight to the Chiefs board.
Anderson IS a stud, but your line chop blocks on SWEEPS. You can label this any way you want, but it's true.
I won't try to take away the Donx success, they've earned it. Kinda.
You can call me bitter, but when a team resorts to cheating to win, I just can't respect that. <BR>

Stevieray... this is also one of the first places I run to when they lose. I'm pretty equal on the topic and I don't run on here saying "Chiefs suck".
As for the chop blocking ... if they are indeed as guilty as some of you claim, then why aren't the media outlets (ESPN, CNN, NFL, etc) coming out and exposing them?
Why are they all hailing Anderson and the 3 straight years of over 1,000 yds by 3 different guys, but not saying "well, if every team chopblocked like that, every RB would have those numbers"?

The league has been notified in the past about this. I SAW it twice early in the game.
The same reason we watched Dudley step out of bounds 300 times, the same reason we watched Moss push off twice last week 3000 times. You tell me.
I'm not trying to bicker with you, sorry if it seemed that way.
12-04-2000, 09:19 AM
hmmmmm, playoffs? :( what is that? I think I'm gonna scream!
damn, I need a beer!
12-04-2000, 09:21 AM
I know you're not bickering ... and I understand the comparisons with Moss and Dudley. However, it would appear that true 'chop blocking' would be more serious than what Moss does on just about every play.
So, if the Denver O-Line were truly 'chop blocking' as much as most on this BB claim, I would imagine there would be an outrage across the league.
That's all.. I saw it once yesterday, but isn't there actually a 'legal' variety of the so-called 'chop block'? I think there is a fine line b/t an illegal chop block and then straight out low tackling? Am I wrong?

I was wondering how Romo was able to be disguised as a Raider player and play for the Donx at the same time, there is no way one of the high class with great leadership Raider players would spit on someone.
12-04-2000, 09:25 AM
Wonder what Denise has to say about that...
What about Haslett trying to fight Spencer? That didn't look like an intentional hit out of bounds, Spencer just kinda rode the guy. Nothing serious... but, I would have been fine if they had penalized him. But, for the opposing coach to try and fight him??
Romo said that if he had seen it, then he would have gone for Haslett. I am just glad that he wasn't looking ... as is Haslett, I'm sure. http://www.chiefsplanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

What I saw were lineman rolling up on the players legs. Sweep left, right side of the line hitting the ground...
Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to have on your backs.
12-04-2000, 09:45 AM
Maybe your crapy team should resort to the type of "play" the Broncos, Viking and Raiders subscribe to. Guess the Chiefs are to moral, and honest to be a decent team.
Mile High, Broncos are rolling. The mounting faith you have in our football team makes me smile. By the end of season, when the Broncos are going to the super bowl, you might start to sound like... well like... like ME!
So here is my 'homer hot sports opinion' for this next week. Raiders will lose to the Jets. If Broncos take care of business this Sunday at home, the Broncos will be in first place.
Broncos are playing great football right now. Better than any team in the AFC with the exception of Miami. And they are winning WITH a backup quarterback and a third string running back. And you Chief fans keep talking about the refs giving us the game. Makes me laugh...

There is a fine line between a good, legit block and a chop block.
We all know it is illegal to block a person below the knees while that person is engaged with another blocker. And, technically, it is illegal to block anywhere below the waist in the open field. However, Denver's O-line does it all of the time, and WRs throughout the league are taught to do it that way (you Bronco fans should remember Dale Carter's low blow to one of your DBs—it ended the DB's career. I don't beleive it was called a penalty, either.)
Denver's O-line skirts the legality, but do it so well no one calls them on it (other than their opponents). Its called good coaching, not cheating. Most of us Chiefs fans don't know what good coaching is, so we call it how we've been conditioned to. We're just jealous.
Good luck Denver...on losing the rest of your games. Same to you, Oakland. I'd like to see Oak 10-6, Denver 9-7 and the Chiefs 9-7. Ain't going to happen, but I can dream!
--Bitter as hell<P>

Broncofan... if I ever sound like you, please somebody shoot me. http://www.chiefsplanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
