Default Re: Must Win @ Den

Honestly, I do NOT consider this a must win game. I consider it a must not get embarrassed game and, as with all of them, a must not get Schaub or AJ injured game. We can afford to lose one on the road to Manning, as bad as that will once again taste. Winning it would have HUGE UPSIDE, though. It would be a big step toward seeding in the playoffs, as in eventually winning home-field advantage throughout--something that Kubiak could really use.

And can we stop Manning? He was getting rid of the ball very fast against the Steelers. Dunno if our pass rush will be much of a factor. Unless, of course, our DB's and LB's can cover them long enough for our rush to get there.
If your pass rush can force a guy like Manning to get the ball out fast, then its a factor whether they are getting there or not.

The fact is that that pressure is effecting the GOAT QB to an extent where he can't sit back and pick holes in your coverage. That is a huge advantage, especially when your 'weakest' DB is great in the short game as well.

If Peyton is forced into throwing it early all game, then it's more on his receivers to beat us for YAC than on Peyton to hit them downfield, and I know which I'd prefer to see us bank on.

This game has been picked by Sky as their live late game, meaning no crappy internet stream for me, it'll be in glorious hi-definition.

Do they film the NFL in 3D yet btw? I've not actually checked if they have it on Sky Sports 3D or not although I suspect they don't.

...so you and David Carr both think this isn't a 'must-win', but a must play well...because as we all know, it's better to look good, than to feel good.
