    3rd down efficiency was terrible. Yates may be the future but right now he's not getting it done. Thanks for the comeback win for the division but I think it's time we gave Jake some playing time.

    That's my opinion...not faulting TJ...he's just not ready and it's obvious.

    I agree. What could it hurt? As much as I wanted TJ to be the man, I just don't think he's ready. The dropoff from Schaub is huge. The defense is on the field way too much, and I can't blame them for being exhausted. The Colts were last in the league in TOP coming into tonight, and we were first. We saw the opposite tonight.

    I think 2-2 with a third string QB is about the best you could hope for. Let Delhomme play the last game and see what he can do.

    TJ is not ready. I agree with that.

    Why? So Kubiak can limit his ability to command the offense also?

    I'd be curious to hear which 3rd down play you thought he should have done better, and exactly what you thought he should have done. Personally, I don't think he should have handed it off on 3rd and long, but that's what he did. Who the hell let that guy decide to do that, anyway?

    13/16 for 132 yards, 10 YPC.

    Wat game were u watching? And delhomme is? Kubes terrible play calling killed us. Only 1 3rd down conversion, that falls on play calling. All 3rd down plays were scripted less than the marker

    Kubes calls an even more conservative game with a QB with that only been on the roster a few weeks.

    This is a fail thread if ever I've seen one. Ironically, this was one of Yates' better performances. This game is 2 parts on the officials and 1 part on Kubiak.

    We can keep him in but forget about beating teams like the Ravens or Steelers and their complex schemes in the playoffs. At least Delhomme has taken a team to the Superbowl and played good in that game...they could have won. It can't hurt to try something like that...I mean we are certainly not going deep in the playoffs with a rookie QB. And I like TJ and think he will be a good NFL qb...one day.

    It amuses me how everyone is blaming it on Kubiak...did he all of a sudden become a bad OC? Even the biggest Kubiak bashers ( myself included ) can't knock the guy for his history as an OC and his work with our offense. IMO...he knows what he is working with and has to minimize mistakes....

    yea, because it's Yates fault when Kubiak decides to hand the ball off on 3rd down and we don't convert...

    Look at the Atlanta and Cincy games when Yates played pretty good. We allowed him to throw the football down the field. I can think of only a few times in today's game where we let him air it out.

    They passed on 6 of the 10 3rd down plays and the only reason they got one 1st down was because of that fluke play Jacoby made. Yates wasn't keeping the drives going when he had the chance.

    Yeah, why shouldn't I be? 3rd down percentage has been 22% and now 10% over these past two games.

    i dont put this on yates, yeah he didnt do very good in obvious passing downs but the coaches put him in that situation. What do you think happens when you run then run and then have to pass. He was succesful passing on 1st and 2nd downs, not so much on 3rd, it dont help caldwell is stinking it up.
