Andy Benoit breaks down the matchup. Enjoy the game, and Go Lions!
Har! Amazing that team's in it again. Sheesh!
Yeah, I guess so. Haven't seen him win a game for the Broncos this year, at least that I can recall. I could be wrong 'bout that.
Mainly the full bronco, Thursday Sunday and Monday nite games. On Sunday I watch red zone only up til after the broncs start. So I see a lot of FGs because the team does not have the offense to get it in. Much like tannys after John TD and the great OLINE retired. I remember ever end of year presser saying we have to improve in the red zone.
That was the huge reason that Elam led the league in scoring more often than not.
To me FGs are a chicken crap way to win a game. Much like last nites game. They should have to forfeit the game if they can not score a TD.
This is American Football not soccer.
Joe Flacco is Elite...did you see all those field goals he threw for?
Given the Broncos desperate need for help at MLB and JDR's history in Jacksonville, why wasn't he pushing for Denver to sign Daryl Smith last offseason?!
great.But until that Utopian day arrives..
We're damn lucky we have Prater.
"Can't get it up in the red zone"....now that's some funny shit right there!
Well, field goals are a part of the strategy of the game, since they can actually win a game. Although they're a bit lame, what's even worse is the conversion after a TD. How many times are those missed in the pros? I'd bet it's a very small percentage. That's definitely one I'd vote to get rid of before the 3-pointer.
But, I agree. Get rid of them completely. Can't get it up in the red zone....gonna use that one!
Hey, do you guys really spend a lot of time watching games other than the Broncos?
Cool graph! Balt really had a win probability of 1 in 10,000 right before the last FG?
IMO FGs should be worth less point wise. Especially the farther out they are.
Just makes no sense to reward a team that can't GET IT UP in the red zone. Just like a PAT is worth 1 point, no need the give them more than that.
Also why give a team a reward for an uber long FG with seconds left like they did tonight.
Hell it should have been BAL 6 points tonight. Maybe it would make it more advantageous to go for it inside the red zone on 4 th and what ever. If you do not get it then the other team gets the ball deep in their territory.
The more you pay a wimpy kicker the less you have for real players.
Maybe cap what a team can pay them and more of those soccer squibs will stay in their own sport. Getting one point per score.
A team should never be allowed to win a game by nky scoring FGs.
this game is why.. it makes no sense to bitch about the money Prater is making.
Gee, that touchdown pass seemed to be wobbling a little. Stafford must have a pretty flimsy arm...
Zebras bailing Baltimore... sigh
Yes. I want BAL to win and ready to smash Pats in the throats next week. They win tonight, they have a 17% chance to get in the playoffs and control their destiny (beat Bengals in last week...).
If the Pats want Detroit to win, don't we want the opposite?
