Default 2013 NFL Kickoff -- Ravens@Broncos



How about a discussion thread for the 2013 NFL Kickoff.

It's football season!!!

Broncos without Von Miller (suspension), Champ Bailey (injury), and Elvis Dumervil (front office fubar, now a Raven).

Clumsy catch but nice to see an ex-Texans player get a score.

Vonta is the leading scorer in the league. How could the Texans give up on that kind talent?

Default Re: 2013 NFL Kickoff -- Ravens@Broncos

I saw a facemask, the facemask itself and not the penalty, that I thought was banned. Did they decide against the rule banning the facemasks in question or will that be in place next year?

I also heard Collinsworth say on a pass interference non-call that refs don't toss a flag unless they see definite contact. Really Chris?? Once a receiver, always a receiver, I guess.

Up 18 pts in the 4th and they still throwing it to score. Now that's a team that is reaching out to grab a victory by the neck instead of protecting it.

Haha! How great is this guy Manning. Up big and 3rd & long under 2 minutes the dude threw the ball for a first down. The trust this guy command is why he is going in the HOF. Wish we had a chance to sign him. Oh wait....we did.

...because your link disproves this statement. Up by 19 in the 3rd Schaub starts the 80 yd TD drive (i.e. on 1st down) with a pass, follows it up on a 2nd and 12 with a 35 yd pass and gets 65 of 80 yds through the air.

Or we can look at the 1st Titans game 3rd qtr up 21-7: 75 yds 4 passes 3 runs including a 28 yd TD pass on 3rd and 5 inside FG range.

Or there is the Denver game 3rd qtr up 24-11 on our 28. 72 passing yds for a TD - 1 rush for no gain.

All I'm thinking is why is your franchise QB still in the game against a frustrated defense who might be looking to release some of it against him? Why wouldn't you be giving your backup some some game time?

I hope Kubiak would be smarter than that.

Kubiak keeps Schaub in and has said he thinks its important to do so. But really, not many NFL teams pull their starting QB in situations like that.

You're right but it doesn't make it less stupid. Injury aside, why not get your backup some game time?

Would like to know why Kubiak says its important for the starter to be in there during garbage time. I can't fathom what the logic would be.

Manning was in a safe mode, not a "conservative" mode. A 3 step drop and throw or lay down and keep the clock running if no recievers are open. It's a virtually impossible play for a "smart" QB to get injure on. That's who John Fox sees on the field, a guy who he can trust to make smart decision.

Does it really matter? They didn't get any farther than we did in the play-offs. They were one & done.

They played better in the play offs than we did. They didn't get blown out a second time by a team that just blew them out a few weeks before. They were one and done......with a bye.....that was their firs year gerting used to manning...that was their first year with that style of offense.

All that said, none of that matters for this year. Texans have a chance to prove all the doubters (I'm one) wrong. They have a chance to show us doubters that there's not something functionally wrong with the way the team is built and the mindset of the team.

They have a chance to show that they've learned from last year and have gotten better.

No need for anyone to get bent, defensive, aggressive or irritated on either side. We should all be anxiously awaiting the start of the season. These guys are about to tell us all we need to know.
