haha yeah it was still a TD regardless of how you look at it.

Schaub played like crap honestly. I HATE his throwing 4 yards short of the first down every single time.

Teams have gone far in the playoffs with lesser QBs.

If this team was going to go far it was going to be on the back of the running game and the defense. I thought that was what carried them last year and I think that is what will carry them this year if they go far.

Time to find out if they can go to the next level. At least they can go in with no real pressure because they are expected to lose. House money baby!

Steven Ridley will get a 130yrd TD in 1 run. Brady will throw a TD to Brandon Harris for a NE td. Vince Wilfork will eat Matt Schaubs jock strap while getting a sack fumble that will be returned by Connie Chung the LB. Gostkowski will attempt a 80 yrd field goal and miss but knock the only texans fan unconscious in the stands, and afterward Gronk will bang your gf.

thats what im looking forward to. I already left my gf so goodluck to her getting gronked.

Because this offense is dependent on a successful running game, not stellar QB play. If the defense has to respect the running attack that gives the receivers an advantage.

As long as our running game is clicking and our defense is stingy we have a shot.

Foster is the engine that powers this offense. The running game has always powered Denver-style offenses. The first time we beat Manning, it wasn't because Schaub out-dueled him, it was because Ron Dayne had a career day. When Elway finally won a Super Bowl, it was because TD carried them to the win. Both times, IMO. RGIII is successful because that rookie RB, Alfred Morris is a beast (did I mention he rushed for 1600+ yds this year?) and other teams have to respect the run. That's the way this offense has always worked.

If you keep listening to the QB-worshiping talking heads on the boob tube instead of studying what WE do, you'll always be disappointed. ...and misguided.

(it used to be Foster/Tate but Tate seems to have vanished)

I think Foster is back on track and Schaub got a confidence boost. Need the guys like Walt er to get open. Joseph player of game imo.

I want the very worst storm possible that still allows us to play.
At both NE and Denver. I want another home game.

Any given Sunday.....

There have been way larger upsets than what could happen next Sunday.

Well if u remember our first run in the pats game was a 13 yard run that got called back for holding and then the next series we had another long run that came back, and by that time our D was playing so bad that we had no choice but to go to the air, but just because i miss a buck today dont mean i will miss him tomorrow.

If we don't try to attack Wilfork and do more pitch plays and things of that nature I think we can get the run game going again. The line played like men today.

Considering we completely dominated Cinci and we only beat them 19-13, I can't say I'm optomistic.

Just because I don't think we'll win doesn't mean I don't want us to win. Per the usual, I'll be rooting my butt off!

On the Pats boards their fans, in general, are not taking anything for granted. They keep talking about 2010 when they blasted the Jets 40-something to 3 in December only to lose to the Jets in the postseason.
