Default Denver vs. New England

I can't figure out who I want to win. I want Kubiak announced as our HC ASAP, but I would also like to see him get to the Super Bowl. I am at work and only catching bits and pieces of the game, can't tell if it's a good defensive battle or crappy offesive output. Either way, Shanahan going for it on 4th and 1 around New Englad's 5 yard line earlier and not making it could come back to bite him in the butt if the game stays close like this.

Jake Plummer is not making a good case for picking up David Carr's option right now.

Huh ? The Plummer interception was a great play by the DB, not a bad throw
by Plummer. But I don't get the link between Plummer & Carr ?

He's played one quarter of so/so football. He put up great numbers during the regular season and went forever during the regular season without throwing an INT.

Because some here think Kubiak can turn Carr's career around. They have used Plummer as an example by pointing out what he did in Arizona (nothing) compared to what he has done since coming to Denver and playing under Kubiak.

New England has gotten away with MORE interference calls in the playoffs the last few years than anybody. If it takes this to get even, then so be it.

Not just the interception. Also the lovely pass on 3rd and 2.

The link is the renewed faith amongst fans that Carr will become great because Kubiak will play Obi-Wan to David's Luke Skywalker just like he did with Jake Plummer.

I'll believe Kubes can turn Carr around before I believe Vince is our saviour sent from above...

Reason of the day to love the Texans' new coaching staff:

After NE's first fumble, the first offensive play called was a pass into the end zone. Taking advantage of a momentum change...what a concept.

I'm really torn about this game....

I want Denver to 'take out' the Pats, but....
I want the Texans to be able to get our new coach in here ASAP!!

That's a tenuous link to say the least, but Carr is far more talented than
Plummer who's got maybe a B- minus arm on a day when he's winging it
real good.
But back to the game, NE has coughed it up twice, playing in one of the toughest environment in the league and Denver is absolutely thrilled they're
up by a TD. Don't count the Pats out, they are the Champs.

I wonder if Kubes could bring Larry Coyer with him. I didn't know Denver's defense was that good. I checked and they were ranked 2nd against the run in the NFL in 2005. New England put up like 28 on the Jags defense and have only scored 3 points on Denver's defense. Coyer took all of the linemen that were supposed busts from Cleveland and is making it work. Or maybe I just have the man love for all of the Broncs coordinators...
