    We aren't going to win this game with out our receivers including Walker making some plays out of character.

    Denver knows what we want to do, who knows if it'll be 8 in the box each play.

    I'm not saying we shouldn't run the ball. All I'm saying is as bad as their run d is, and as much as we love to establish the run, you can bet that front 7 will quickly turn to a front 8 or more depending on how many wr's we throw out there each play. We don't have to beat them deep every play, but Matthews/Sharpe/Wright will have to make quick grabs to keep them honest then maybe we can catch them napping for a deep ball.

    We have to pull out all the stops. MM will have to use his legs and be protective of the ball at the same time.

    Defense wise, pressure pressure pressure. D line/pass rush get your hands up because they'll try to get rid of it quick if the conditions aren't great. I have total confidence in shutting down their run game, but we will have to get constant pressure, and our secondary will need to pull a rabbit out of their hat.

    We don't have to pull out all the stops, we just have to not turn it over cause we just don't create TOs of our own to balance out the mistakes

    Don't try too hard and win 1-on1's how we have been most of the year

    Trying to get cute has cost us before, hopefully these coaches have learned from their mistakes

    I probably should have been more clear when I said "pull out al the stops". By no means does that mean shovel options lol. I just meant MM will need to tuck it and run it if need be and use what he's been born with instead of trying to force throws on the run. Was my fault.

    Hope this team plays hard but under control. No pointless penalties (Roughnesss etc.)

    Wonder if we can still run on Denver even if they put 8 in the box.. effectively I mean. The Browns did well earlier this year on putting a lot in the box, but left the passing game ripe for the picking, but denvers corners are a different monster. Can't be afraid of them though. Just gotta make plays.

    Loading up van. Double coffee already. Bloody Marys on ride up. Black bean and sausage soup for tailgate. Rolling Stones, Zep, maybe Blackfoot for my jam, not sure about my sons' and his friends' jam.

    Feels good to play meaningful ball in Dec. Hope the rains holds off.

    Titan Up!
