The IAOFM staff discuss the Denver Broncos' 17-13 Week 11 victory over the Jets
Ted: Happy football Thursday
TJ: Hey, dudes - and I mean that in the old school way. Really old school
Doug: I’m not excited about staying up so late haha
Ted: I'm up till 1 AM most nights - I'm used to it
TJ: The MBA, Ted? Or you just like Zombie movies a LOT!
Ted: I thought kickoff was at 8. WTF?
Doug: Nah, it’s 8:20
Ted: So we can hear Prime and the Playmaker some more in all their brilliance
Doug: We'll be lucky if the game is over by midnight
TJ: Yeah, I'm starting at a white screen right now thinking, “What the hell am I going to write, and how fast can I do it?” I honestly can't write until I'm up against it - it's like nothing comes out until it HAS to. I'm hoping to see some Nick Mangold v. Brodrick tonight. Oh, Doug, I wouldn't be surprised if the Broncos don't switch it up yet again tonight on their first 2 series - you want to break tendencies. Even passing 3 times immediately, that would be hilarious
Ted: I'd be happy to see play action on 1st and 10
TJ: Would make these NFL guys seem quite silly since they just spent 2 hours talking zone read
Doug: Yeah makes sense. Did they really have to have Warner of all people interview Tebow? Why not Mooch?
TJ: Yeah, I watched it - not one mention of Jesus. One mention of God, but only when Tebow said, “Thank god I saw Eddie.” So it wasn't that bad - Warner actually tried to bait him on the John Fox quote, and he just ducked it wisely
Ted: They're trying to establish Warner as a TV star. He's not one. KICKOFF!
TJ: Here we go, guys!
Ted: I don't like the all blue uniforms
Doug: Yeah I hate the all blue
Denver opens with a 28-yard pass from Tim Tebow to Demaryius Thomas but the drive stalls when Willis McGahee gets stuffed on 4th-and-1 from the Jets 21
TJ: This is gonna be fun. Quads!! Haha as I expected! Yeah!
Ted: That was a pretty good throw
TJ: Ha, I ad a feeling, man - you have to break tendencies. Not a bad run, but Pouha is a beast
Ted: Yeah he's a good NT
TJ: Double TEs. Oh, man, Leonhard saved that one. That could have gone big
Ted: That was the dive option
Doug: Do they run again third and medium? Wow, Willis!
TJ: First down
Ted: That was good blocking and great running
TJ: I knew they weren't gonig to play Cover 0
Ted: No, it would be crazy to do it regularly. They'll do it here and there
TJ: Nice, Green as FB. Wow, I like this option/shovel. That's a cool play
Ted: That's the shovel option I drew 4 weeks ago, but not with a TE
TJ: Pouha is just tough to move. Gadget play
Ted: Who knew Decker was a lefty?
TJ: I did! Dude has an arm. Remember last week? He scored, and he threw the ball with his left hand like 100mph
Ted: That's right
Doug: Yeah, he has a quicker release than Tebow
TJ: Go for it!
Ted: Yes, definitely
Doug: Must go. Sneak it! WTF?!?!
TJ: Noooooooooo. Negative
Ted: I still like the call
Doug: I don't understand why more NFL teams don't run sneaks, especially with a 230 lb QB
Denver gets the ball back on the Jets 34 after a 13-yard punt by T.J. Conley, and Matt Prater hits a 37-yard FG to give Denver the lead; 3-0 Broncos
TJ: Nice play, Marcus. Beat the double team. Dooooom! And Von too
Ted: They can't protect him if he holds the ball
TJ: Hunter is gonna have a tough night
Doug: That was fairly quick though no?
Ted: It was, Doug. It was a 3-step drop though - the ball has to come out
Doug: Nice punt!
TJ: 13-yard punt? Wayne Hunter can't stand up to Von's pressure - no way in Hades
Ted: The Jets love to minimum protect, which we've read before somewhere...
TJ: Hahaha that punt was like a turnover, essentially
Ted: Yes it sure was. I love them using Royal like this - it's a great use of his skills
Doug: Man, this is Trickeration Central
TJ: They have no idea where the football is
Ted: Look at that FB DIVE! That's some Darrell Royal stuff
TJ: First down?
Doug: Short. He was bobbling it, I guess
Ted: That's on Decker
Doug: Yeah no catch, no way. It was a really high throw, and everything is a trick
TJ: I would rather see some throws on 3rd down. Clady got owned - surprised to see Clady get beat like that.
Ted: It was high Doug, but Decker had 2 hands on it. The highness was responsible for him being short, and losing his footing, but I need a catch there
Doug: Tebow knows how tall he is?
Ted: He does, but despite the high throw, it's a catch you have to make. They both take blame on the play, is what I'm saying. They both need to do better
Doug: I just don't buy that every throw that hits a guy's hands should be a catch, Receivers are athletes too, and they get their hands on most passes that are even in their vicinity. It took an athletic play to even touch that ball. But if the throw isn't 3 feet over his head, he catches it
Ted: It was a catch till he bobbled it going to the ground, though. He had it, then he didn't
TJ: At any rate, it's one pass.
Ted: Yeah, we're all aware that Tebow isn't what you'd call a precision passer at this point. That needs work, definitely
Doug: But we also can't excuse every incompletion as not being his fault
Ted: I'm not
Doug: By this standard, Brandon Lloyd should catch every ball thrown to him - because he gets his hands on every ball
Nick Folk misses a 52-yarder after a 9-play possession for the Jets
TJ: The reality right now, nothing to do with Tebow, is the Jets have NO idea where the ball is. Von and Doom credited with .5 already. That's a play Tebow could run on - the naked boot. Good hit by Mays
Doug: If Tebow threw better on the run i'm sure McCoy would call them - which is ironic
TJ: Smart moves by the Jets. They are concerned about the number of snaps they are gonna get tonight
Ted: Why was there only one CB there? What's the flag?
Doug: That was odd
TJ: Offensive PI. Odd call though
Doug: Ugh, confused D. Okay not a bad result after all that confusion
TJ: Good tackle by Q
Ted: Greene got rocked
TJ: Ouch, he got loaded upon
Doug: Quinton carter baby
TJ: Stop em, boys! Oh man
Doug: OOH that is close
TJ: Almost, McBean - he stalked him. The crowd needs to scream louder. Stupid flag
Doug: Wow what an awful throw - it looked like it slipped out of his hand, it was so high
Ted: Dre' had awesome coverage there
TJ: Awful call, unless it's on Dawk. Yeah,it's on Dawk. Dre’ was perfect
Doug: UGH Dawk. Defenseless WR, or launching
Ted: Yeah that was a bad play by Dawkins
TJ: Whoa, interesting challenge?
Doug: That's not a catch!
Ted: That's great recovery
TJ: Yeah, Champ is always switched on. Except of course, when he's not. That's some powerful analysis, haha
Ted: Any CB can be beat inside on a quick slant, but the great ones can recover
TJ: This game plan does keep it tight, can't argue that point
Doug: Ha we'll see it's early TJ
TJ: Good field position if he misses - shank it, Folk. Yeah, wide!!!!!! Broncos are dominating field position, just like last game. Just owning FP
Doug: Yeah but so far it's by the Jets' mistakes
Ted: Tebow needs to buckle his chinstrap - he totally keyed a handoff with that. Basic defensive key reading
Doug: UGH, still didn't buckle it
TJ: Either way, it's opportunity. No non no no no no! TO. So what happened on that ZR?
Ted: The Jets strung it out, and McGahee was hesitant, and got the ball knocked out
Doug: That's the first turnover since the Detroit game
Ted: It was a really tentative looking run
TJ: So he just didn't hit the hole
Ted: There wasn't much of a hole, but he was being a little overpatient, to me. That's a fine line, obviously
Doug: Yeah, either way the play had no chance, but he didn't have to fumble
TJ: Sanchize audibled, looked like
Ted: Yeah it was a “check with me”
TJ: Damn, McBean flat right hooked that cat
Ted: Not great reaction by Dawkins
Doug: As you wrote Ted, Sanchez is great throwing between the numbers
TJ: Yeah, perfect coverage for the Jets on that slant for Sanchize. Champ was off man - Cushion City
Ted: Mays/Ayers nice
Doug: Dennis Allen's D, keeping us alive again
TJ: Tipped? Otherwise, that's a TD. Von tipped it. Dude is en fuego
Ted: Really nice play - coverage was really good there
Doug: Super quick reaction
TJ: Bet they don't go
Doug: Wow, I'd go for it every time. I wouldn't even have to think
TJ: Rex won't, I bet hahahaha. They are playing right into Denver's hands with the game plan
Ted: I'm sure Rex sees this as a defensive struggle
TJ: Yeah, Rex def doesn't think his QB is gonna put up a lot of points tonight
Ted: A better Jets offense didn't against a far worse Broncos defense last year
TJ: Hell, the Jets should have traded for Kyle Orton.
Folk hits on a 21-yarder to tie the game at 3
Ted: I'm disappointed to see Julius Thomas inactive - I thought there might be some matchups for him
TJ: Yeah, Doug lied to me - so I put him in my Cover 0 article, haha. Me, too, Ted I even wrote it haha
Doug: Hey, I did cite Rexy's book this morning in which he said it's silly to use a defensive gimmick
TJ: Wow bad decision, but still...
Ted: Bad decision but great return
Doug: Man, Jeff Rodgers - he's gotten a lot of big plays out of these guys all year. Without this return game the Broncos would probably have at least 20 fewer points this year
TJ: We are dominating FP! Hahaha, Man, our FP the last two games has been spectacular
Ted: McGahee was slow to the hole again
TJ: I think his hammy is slowing him
Ted: I agree. But it may be better to use Ball and Johnson
TJ: Pouha is so beast - Walton got owned. Let him throw - just let him!
Ted: Yeah, it's time to throw it
TJ: Come on, it's time. Bubble. Look, even is he is the worst QB in history, just let him throw once in awhile
Doug: Wow punting from where? Damn. Oh my, sailor kneeling before a standing Tebow. You think that will get some yuks around the interweb?
TJ: Did you see that footage of Tebow? Hahaha, yeah, I'm rolling, bro
Ted: I missed it
TJ: That was pretty funny. I think Tebow is tooo nice, man, he should tell those cats NO
Doug: And he’s got his fist out in front of Tebow’s crotch. I mean, he's Tebowing...but still, you KNOW this will get Photoshopped right about...now
TJ: DA just showed the 46 defense!
Doug: Man, if you told me a month or two ago that Denver would have a better D than the Jets...they're swarming like Rex's teams usually do
TJ: DA showing the 46 hahaaaaaa
Ted: He's steeped in it. Gregg Williams has coached a lot of 46
TJ: Von is beassst
Doug: Wow terrible throw, back foot
TJ: Sanchize is terrible. The Jets are one quarterback away from being a good team
Doug: And they moved up to #5 to get him, too
TJ: Dude, Barkley is already better than Sanchize...easily
Doug: Barkley is better than both of these guys, by a lot
TJ: Well you won’t get an argument from me, but Sanchize sucks
Doug: And, that doesn't even mean he'll be a good NFL QB
TJ: Wow, LB got sucked in. Haha oh my
Ted: No matter what you do against a good option, you're wrong
TJ: JJ, Stick Um?
Ted: That...was not a good option
TJ: Haha, LOL Ted. Let him throw! Okay, could have been better
Doug: That’s what happens TJ
TJ: But at least they let him throw
Doug: Time, space, open receiver...no dice. Basic stuff
TJ: Well, still, don't you agree - even if he is bad, you HAVE to let him try?
Doug: I get that he'll probably hit more throws if he's in a rhythm and throwing more, but if he doesn't hit them in practice, you don't call them during the game. Because why would you expect it to work NOW, when it didn't work during the week, or during camp? What, they didn't practice throwing?
TJ: But as an excuse NOT to let him try? I'm just saying. Let him do what QBs do on third and long. Even if he sucks, he's got to try. McBean! Hit that gap!
Ted: McBean has become a pretty good 3rd DT lately
Doug: He's been hunting them down all year. He's got their number, the running backs
Doug: Oh, Doom. That's a KILLER, although not the same as giving free first downs to the Pats
TJ: I can't say I hate good defense
Doug: So, can we anoint Allen our next head coach in waiting, the way they do in college?
Ted: Not a catch
Doug: Live it looked like no catch. I think that's a catch on replay though
TJ: The toe got down, bastard
Doug: Sure did -with the ball, too
TJ: Haha Griese and Logan are arguing about the catch - Griese says yeah, Logan says no way
Ted: I don't like using the second challenge there, regardless of the outcome
Doug: I just hate that rule, Ted - it doesn't make sense at all. Once you win a challenge, it shouldn't matter later.
TJ: Agreed, Doug
Doug: VON, lightning
TJ: VON = Pro Bowl. Chris Harris is solid gold
Doug: Nice tackle - that was really solid
TJ: Dial it up, DA
Ted: Harris is a Que like Woodyard. I never noticed that
Doug: He's so tiny
A bad snap from Nick Mangold ends up with Sanchez recovering for an 8-yard loss, and the Jets punt again
Ted: I thought Von might beat him there
TJ: Dude, for as bad as Tebow might be, Sanchize is DONE. That looked to be on Mangold, though
Ted: The Broncos took a TO to keep it north of 2 minutes - I like that
TJ: Still, Sanchize is sooo bad. I wouldn't be surprised if the Jets go another direction, and soon
Ted: MARK BRUNELL!
TJ: Another 3rd-down party: 1-5, 1-6, Broncos, Jets
Doug: Hahaha more exciting Broncos football
TJ: You think Rex lets the Sanchize do anything here? I bet they don't.
Doug: Well, now that they're on the 20...
Ted: Colquitt did his job there, like usual
Doug: Screen or draw
TJ: Yep, you called it
Ted: Totally predictable
TJ: Wow, no one was even close to him there haha
Doug: Now they're in business
Ted: Let's dial up some pressure
Doug: Yeah, why not - this isn't the time to ease up
TJ: He could throw a pick
Doug: Come on Von
TJ: Fox v. a conservative Ryan
Doug: Just 1 TO left - so they can take one shot in the middle or go to the sidelines. Timeout Jets? I'd call a timeout there
Sanchez lines up the offense as if to spike the clock, but instead passes to Dustin Keller for no gain, and Folk misses a 61-yard kick at the gun; 3-3 at halftime
TJ: Hahaha, stupid play. God, Sanchize. Tebow may not be great, but Sanchize is worse. Sanchize = Dan Marino's Wonderlic
Doug: Then you could've spiked on another completion
Ted: Now it's all Hail Mary
Doug: Wow, 61. Is someone bback there?
TJ: No good - that's on you, Sanchiiiize
Doug: Why not? Why would you not have Cassius Vaughn back there?
Ted: I was surprised not to see a return man. This feels like a 3-3 game. It's been played on even terms
TJ: Seriously, I'd take Tebow over Sanchize, and I'm not exactly a fan of Tebow
Doug: Well, i'd take neither one haha. We've had a lot of games that feel like this this year - Foxball, baby
Ted: Broncos had a turnover, Jets had 2 missed FGs, one you wouldn't hold against them. Foxball kind of works when your talent isn't world-class. I'm warming to it
Doug: No, I agree. I'm just saying it's boring as all hell.
Ted: It is
TJ: I at least like the defensive side
Doug: But without it we'd be getting blown out every week and, Von Miller has a lot to do with this
TJ: Miller is so awesome
Doug: Boy, that non-timeout or non-spike was a gift, It was so stupid
Ted: Von is a franchise guy
TJ: Dude, seriously, the Jets need to get rid of Sanchize
Ted: 14-17, for 90 yards? That's why 60% is standard now
TJ: As in year end. Ted, what we criticize Tebow for, he actually is. Those two bad throws were BRUTAL - especially the missed TD. That's standard NFL stuff
Ted: Yep, I agree. Well, Von tipped the missed TD
TJ: And he's in year what? Like 10? Haha jk
Ted: 3, all as a starter
TJ: He's not Jay Cutler - he can't do that with his back foot and expect results. Oh well, that's their problem haha
Ted: I remember when I used to love Cutler's talent. Now I think it's mostly a curse
Doug: Guys, just curious because i'm texting with a Jets fan friend. Clock management like that is never the OC's call right? If they want a TO it's Rex's call?
Ted: I think they called that in the huddle - Keller was expecting it
Doug: Right, but i mean it's not the OC's call right?
Ted: It was probably Rex's call. I can't say for sure. Here comes the Diva WR Apologist Hour with Michael Irvin. Today's guest: DeSean Jackson. Tebow is threatening to complete >50% of his throws today, not that completion percentage matters. If it did, Sanchez would be having a good game
Doug: I think it matters, it just doesn't mean someone's good. Accuracy matters, but being accurate doesn't make you a quality QB
Ted: I can go with that
Doug: Broncos 35 rushing yards on 17 carries
TJ: Pouha definitely a negative today for Denver - guy is Freddy Krueger
Ted: He's been huge
TJ: If you are a Jets fan, you have to be pissed at Sanchize
Doug: There's TT praying all by himself. I still can't believe nobody had a problem with Tebow saying football was his third priority in life. Because if Cam Newton were to say that, forget about it - Newton would be an undedicated, selfish jock - he'd have his “priorities out of order”
TJ: Von is soooo fast - he came back on that play and made the tackle
Doug: Wow, that could've been huge
Ted: They ran away from the blitz
Doug: D.J. saved it?
TJ: Von is the best 4-3 OLB in the game right now - better than Wimbley
Ted: Yeah he's outstanding
Doug: Ted what happened to Wimbley in Cleveland? Was it a scheme thing?
Ted: He was a one-dimensional speed rusher that quit getting to the QB. Oakland’s using him smarter, and he's playing better
TJ: Ah, come on. Dre’ is battling today. Digging it - nice tackle
Doug: Nice tackle for sure - also could've been a big play - granted, it's 8 or 9 yards on 1st down
TJ: Looks like they are targeting Dre’ though
Ted: They need to heat up Sanchez
TJ: I think they decided to come out and just attack Dre’, 2nd half - same play - slant
Doug: Yeah, now what DA? Can't let them just dictate down the field
Ted: Heat him up. Sanchez will kill you if he has a clean pocket
Doug: Wow that's bad. That is horrible
TJ: Haha, nice, Sanchize!!! Burn it up, disco inferno
Doug: In a nice rhythm, gashing us, three minutes into the half, timeout hahaha. UGH
TJ: Wow, great call. He sold the hell out of that screen
Doug: And that's a perfect call against that heat we wanted
TJ: Did I tell you I think Sanchez es la bomba? Mi gente
Doug: HAHAHA. Wow, bad throw - really bad throw
Ted: Good front side coverage
TJ: Take that back hahaha
Doug: Time, space, wide open - oops
TJ: BUNKLEY = BEAST MODE
The Jets score on a fumble by RB Bilal Powell which is recovered in the end zone by lineman Matt Slauson; 10-3 Jets
Doug: @#$%! TD
TJ: What, no whistle?
Ted: Can you fumble it forward?
Doug: Yes, you just can’t advance it
TJ: Mays blew that up. Mays destroyed the FB. God, guys, that gets me pumped UP! I love to see a LB destroy a FB. I just got tingles all over - the hair is standing up on my neck just watching that. No matter the score. I hope people talk about the defense this week - they sure as hell deserve it
Ted: I think the lineman recovered outside the end zone, and fell forward, which would be advancing it
Doug: It's probably dead wherever he recovered. But remember, just has to be across the plane. That's one where you need a chip in the ball to reverse it - you'll never have the camera angle, just like they're putting chips in balls for the World Cup to see if a ball crossed
Ted: That's a no-brainer to me - use the available technology. RFID tags are super-cheap - you could do it for 20 cents per ball, and probably 5 grand per stadium
Doug: Although i guess the problem is, this isn't a matter of whether it crossed, but when it crossed - and how. So that's tougher, and much grayer - and that's actually always the issue in football, unlike handless football. You could have the end zone light up when it crosses, like the backboard in the NBA. UGH, Cassius!
TJ: Haha, it works once, Vaughn!
Doug: That's a killer, we need every 10 yards we can get
Ted: Bad play
TJ: So we gonna throw?
Doug: From the 10? Oh no - well, maybe a screen. These zone reads are not working tonight, not that i'm surprised.
TJ: Pouha is a man - he's eating J.D. up like Pac-Man
Doug: WTF there is no excuse for that after a short run
Ted: Rosario lined up wrong
TJ: Um, what was that? Strange - it appears there is some truth to Tanier's general point - you can't do this forever. Throw it, boys. Throw the ball, please
Ted: You can if you can throw it enough to force them out of big personnel. You need to get McIntyre in coverage on somebody
TJ: Yeah, I think we are on the same page. You have to throw it some time. If he throws a pick, so be it - stop treating him like Bobby Douglass
Ted: You absolutely do
Doug: Well, what if he doesn't complete them in practice? Which, based upon the reports from camp, could very well be true? Haha there we go
TJ: Nice run! That was a great effort by Ball. Willis needs to stay on the sideline. Eric Smith, helllllo. Willis doesn't have it tonight. Oh my, bad throw - bad bad
Ted: Too much on that throw, and off line
TJ: Still, you HAVE to let him - I don't care - you can't let him suck his thumb all year
Doug: The things that give Tebow potential require that he be a good thrower on the run, at least. Maybe he doesn't have to be super accurate in the pocket, maybe...but he HAS to be able to hit throws while mobile. UGH put more air under that!!
TJ: Orton shot, hahaha. Eric Decker is the fastest white dude since Forrest Gump
Doug: That didn't need to be thrown so hard - let him get under it. Behind the D, he could've thrown it anywhere
Ted: Great punt
Doug: Colquitt, 2nd MVP behind Von
TJ: Decker = white lightnin'
Ted: I think that possession was a success, getting out from the 10, flipping field position - now just don't let the Jets flip it back
Doug: Sure, but i'd like to see a wide open WR turn into a TD
Ted: Me too, no doubt about that
Doug: How many times you get a guy behind the D like that free and clear? Twice a game? maybe?
Ted: I'm not going to lament it. It is what it is
TJ: Another 3 and out!
Ted: The ball is coming back, the offense needs to make some plays
TJ: Love me some D. Man, seriously, I'm Tebowed out. I'm glad you guys have the stamina
Ted: I am too, really
Doug: TJ, i can argue forever
TJ: Haha, yeah, I KNOW - you have before with me!
Ted: I never realized it would get like this when the Broncos took him. It wasn't like this at Florida - I mean the reaction to him
Doug: Well, this is the NFL and he wrote a book and did a SB commercial. How many NFL players have written a book or had endorsements before even becoming a starter?
Ted: He's part of the problem, Doug... no doubt
TJ: Ted, I never guessed the Bermans of the world would ignore the ENTIRE team. That's what pisses me off the most - ever heard of Von Miller? Anyone?
Ted: When he was a freshman, the thumpers accepted that Leak was the starter - it was entirely different as a dynamic. That's a bad thing too TJ
TJ: Too many Samoans for the Jets! They are too bad ass
TJ: A little less zip, Tebow arrrggggg
Doug: UGH he cannot throw. I mean, he can...but he doesn't - not often enough
TJ: I don't want to write about Tebow! Damn it, come on!!!!
Doug: If he could throw in practice or in TC, he would have started Week 1
Andre’ Goodman picks off a Sanchez pass at the 26 and brings it back for a score to tie the game again at 10
TJ: 1-8 on 3rd down, but our D is kickin'
Ted: Heat him up
TJ: Light em up!!!! TD!!! SanchizzzzEEEE
Doug: This is what we needed
Ted: What did I say? Heat this guy up, all the time - he's much, much worse under pressure
TJ: These guys are playing Orange Crush Football
Ted: The Jets have nobody who scares me deep... get after Sanchez
Doug: YES - holy smokes
TJ: This is some Mile High @#$%!
Ted: Yes yes YES
Doug: Wow, our ST is dominating theirs, aside from Cassius getting stuck at the 10. I mean, the fumble is luck, but still
Ted: The Broncos are among the best ST units in the NFL this year - it's really shocking, from where they came from
TJ: Rex is blowing a gasket
Doug: It's shocking for any year haha
TJ: Get Willis OUT - he's not ready. You have to get him out
Doug: Even the SB years when Darrien Gordon was doing his thing, the coverage units weren't very good
Ted: Yeah, the edge is where the yards are tonight
TJ: Remember how I said he needs to throw? Haha I still think he needs to, but I don't know what to say on that call
Doug: Again, time and space. Eddie needed to be 4 inches taller
Ted: I'd rather throw it away than take a sack - that's about all you can say
Doug: Good FP maybe? Haha. Or, not...
TJ: I think the call was brutal. Tight space there. Dooom the bull rush haha
Ted: Good pocket mobility there by Sanchez, excellent coverage downfield
Doug: Coverage, plus Von
TJ: He's OUT, boys
Ted: The Broncos have been hurting QBs lately
Doug: OH - that should be 15
TJ: Von crushed him. Von put the sleeper on him
Doug: Tell you what, that's probably a fine - definitely a late hit
Ted: I like how Larsen is running the ball the last couple weeks
TJ: Run the zone read? How about that, McCoy? COME ONNNN
Ted: Sprint out left
Doug: WTF?! 3 seconds left in the quarter?!
Ted: Did the coach take it? The camera angle was bad, so I don't know who called the TO. It was Decker
Doug: Ah, Decker is always the only one looking at the play clock. I guess because he's standing up. UGH, this is comical. If this were the Raiders we'd be laughing our asses off
TJ: That's some white on white crime right there - which as a white dude, I'm personally against. Leonhard on Decker, I mean - a little testy
Ted: Haha what did he do?
TJ: Oh, he just tried to cover him, and no white man can stay with Decker - not even Hillis
Ted: Decker is kind of on my @#$%list today
TJ: For the drops?
Ted: And the false start - especially the false start
Doug: He was distracted, his girlfriend sang at halftime
TJ: Yeah, he needs to look in the mirror today a bit, instead of bitch at Tebow on the clock. Ah, Von got caught - 1st time all day
Ted: Mulligan got him there, nice block
TJ: Yeah, a big boy, indeed
Doug: Ugh our run D is wearing down
Ted: Thomas needs that tackle
TJ: Someone is getting grounded and pounded right now, and they are wearing blue. Bunk! Beast!
Ted: Hunter had a nice edge too
TJ: That play was so LT-esque
Doug: Ouch, that's a killer
TJ: Bad throw, great catch - got caught on the blitz, safety didn't get there in time. He has to get there quicker. DOOM! Yeah!!!!
Ted: That was great effort
TJ: Von Doom, for LIFE
Ted: Dumervil is finally getting back to his old self
TJ: Miller/Dumervil 2012
Doug: Ugh nice call - another beautiful screen call and, broken tackles. WOW that was some throw hahaha. And, there it is - you think KSK will have some fun with this?
Ted: Good pressure
Folk puts the Jets ahead 13-10 with a 45-yard FG
Doug: UGH I guess he was going to make one eventually. Pettine looks like he's napping. Oh boy, Cassius Cassius this is how you lose your KR job
Ted: From the department of lessons not learned...
TJ: Let's go, Vaughn you're playing like Vince! Damn, Von taking in oxygen. How about going deep to DT?
Ted: Good idea
TJ: I swear they are gonna boo if they run here - go right at Revis
Ted: Now let's have a crossing route against man
TJ: Deeep, damn it! As I predicted, boo birds
Ted: Not a good punt there either... it's all connected
TJ: Come on McCoy! I love him, and I don't engage i the beat OC up. But that is not the way to go. 2nd down would have been a great time for a deep cross
Ted: No, you need to throw it there - the Jets are pretty much proving that they can contain the run game if you don't threaten them downfield
TJ: 3 and out, 8 out of last 9 possessions
Doug: Tebow 1 for his last 8 throws
TJ: Hunter is jumpy! He doesn't like seeing Von. No way Sanchize gets this. Unleash the Tebow - let him go OFF script
Ted: We could use a nice touchback here, or a touchdown
Doug: Eddie, let's go!
TJ: Now it's time for some street ball
Doug: People chanting Ed-die! NO!!!! Fair catch at the 5?!?! WTF
TJ: Why fair catch?
Ted: The awesome special teams is a distant memory
TJ: Haha, Ted, it sure seems it
Doug: We have Cassius taking it out from deep, and Eddie fair catching at the 5 holy smokes
Ted: That's 3 return mishaps
Doug: Not just that Ted, but 3 mistakes with PLENTY of time to make the decision - not bang bang mistakes
Ted: Right... Royal especially needs to know where he is there
Denver takes over at its own 5-yard line, and Tebow drives the team the length of the field before scoring from 20 yards out on 3rd and 4; 17-13 Broncos
Ted: That was not a great idea
TJ: When Eddie caught that, I got scared
Doug: That would've been game over
Doug: Hahaha perhaps
Ted: We haven't seen enough Tebow runs tonight. That's a nice first and 10 call
Doug: I think they need to change the clocks at the stadium so Tim thinks it's always 5 minutes left. And then there's that
TJ: DT? You around, bro?
Ted: Dude's a gifted runner, you know?
Doug: Sure, let's make him a fullback. Or an H-back. Can he catch?
Ted: I'd be okay with that if he doesn't improve at QB
Doug: Time, space, open receiver...no dice
TJ: Hey, I predict a long career in Denver as an H-back
Doug: I don't think it can happen in Denver, but we'll see
TJ: Nice catch! Don't get conservative now. DO NOT
Doug: Agreed - otherwise you're hoping for a coin flip or another OT turnover
TJ: Haha, guess what - even if he goes 30% the peeps will say, “Look at the last five minutes!”
Doug: Don't say it - it was the defense. Hahaha this is Miami again
TJ: And we'll be seeing same debate again this week
Doug: 50 minutes of suck
Ted: This a football game, not a referendum on the QB. The Broncos have a chance to win a football game and get to .500
TJ: Gonna play for OT
Doug: That's a mistake
Ted: No, it’s throw time - Tebow can be trusted not to throw a pick
TJ: Here comes a run
Ted: Tebow just got to talk to McCoy - that's a good thing
Ted: Tebow is a bad MF, boys
TJ: Yeah, John looks enthused
Ted: He can't throw at an NFL level (yet, hopefully) but he can make a play
Doug: Make him a FB, I say keep him here for 10 years. Or, just keep him around for goal line and short yardage
TJ: Elway is clapping like he is in a tomb
Sanchez and the Jets come up short, with the QB’s last-second Hail Mary falling incomplete at the gun
Ted: That was awesome. Later for the problems, now for the huge play. Heat this dude up, starting right now
Doug: Don't need to though - FG is no good. I’d play it safe
Ted: If you don't, that's what he does
Doug: Fine - under a minute, 4-point lead. Let him
Ted: I remember getting beat on a pass interference penalty last year, I guess. Your thought is defensible, I just don't agree
Doug: But that was a 3-point lead
Ted: I just don't want to be in that position. Some people are prevent people, I'm not. Being aggressive put you in position to win, so dance with the girl that brung you
Doug: I'm generally not one either Ted, but the situation matters
Ted: Again, I'm not necessarily saying I'm right, it's just my philosophy. I understand your POV, and I respect it
Doug: I don't want to offer them the chance to beat me with one play - because, that's what this is. This isn't about protecting a lead with 5 minutes left. Rather, it's keep them out of the end zone in the next 48 seconds, you win. Period. Hahaha amazing!
Ted: My way and your way worked, congratulations to us both
Doug: Haha yeah
Ted: The Broncos are in the race, for real - all 3 AFC West teams have a good chance to get beat this week
