The Roundup

drew1120toon.gif

The lack of offense finally caught up with the Broncos and LaDainian Tomlinson ran around ,over, and through a defense that had been nearly impenetrable. The Broncos now find themselves in deep water.

This toon was done right after the game. I had an 11:00 p.m. deadline so it didn't give me much time but I always like the challenge of turning around an image right after the game that shows up on the internet at midnight and is in the morning paper for breakfast. Clearly there were many angles and directions I could have gone. I decided on L. T. because I liked the drawing. It was possible to execute quickly and to the point. Very important considerations under a tight deadline.

    Ugh...that was ugly.

    3rd down makes/breaks a team and in this case, Jake broke the offense...again..

    LT is just amazing to watch. But it also shows that the Broncos D isnt as great as the statistics show. Two big offenses in the Colts/Chargers and the Donks come up short. Half the field is shut down with Champ and the other half is a gaping seive with D.Williams. Forget his interception, that was thrown right at him.

    What kills me is that Dallas can get pressure on Manning with a front 3 and it takes Denver 6 players to even get Rivers to rush his throws. Other than the big hit by Gold on Rivers in the first half, that was the only time he was on the ground...

    Now AT KC...(must win)...If memory serves KC has some unreal record at home in November.

    If Denver loses at KC, Shanny will be under tremendouse pressure to bring in Cutler. If they lose to Seattle thereafter, a pure guarantee...a loss to SD thereafter...Cutler drives the rest of the season with 3 games to go...

    I'm all wound up...no time to 'come down' until Turkey day when I will be yelling at the Damn Donkeys looking for Jake to break my heart again...

    An embarrassing coaching perfomance last night. I didn't think I'd live to see the day that Shanahan was outcoached by Martyball.

    Also, I disagree with the floks mad at Sapp on the last kickoff. If he lets that ball bounce and it bounces funny, San Diego has a decent chance to recover that kick ending any chance at a comeback.

    Lastly, Darrent Williams feel free to cover someone before you start running your yap telling everyone how great you are.

    Coaching is only good if you have the personnel to execute your plays. We all know the offense has been dumbed down for Plummer to grasp it. It is time for the Cutler Era to begin. Does anyone honestly think Jake will take the Broncos to the the promised Land (Super Bowl)? Should they somehow make the playoffs, think Wild Card they will lose. So why wait until next year to get get Cutler playing time?

    I'm sick of Plummer. I've continually backed him when others didn't. Well, now I know I was in the wrong. This supposed 10 year Veteran is playing no better than a rookie. I say we take our chance with the "other" rookie that is sitting on the bench right now. He may not come in and light things up, but he definitely can't do any worse than what Jake has done thus far this season.

    Go Broncs!!!

    Just curious, am I the only one who remembers the time a few years ago when we had the great greise? I'll take plummer over him any day, I wonder how Plummer would play without every Bronco fan on his back every Sunday. I'm not saying he's great, but I don't want to see Cutler thrown into his situation right now. If he didn't live up to 100% of his potential, everyone here would be throwing him under the next bus to Miami.

    What a heartbreaker encapsulating the season. Jake falls asleep, we can't decide who we want at running back, Darrent-Williams does a lame T.O. impression, and we lose the game in just one and a half quarters. Not to mention that SD kept the ball almost the entire first quarter.

    Is this going to become known as Shannyball? Our anomalous season is starting to resolve into an ugly picture. We don't have it in us to make a Superbowl run this year. It's a disappointing reality.

    Shanny needs to make the changes now to prepare for a strong run for the SB in 2007! Let Cutler get some reps and experience. Pick a running back and stick with him or acknowledge that the position is an open audition. Figure out how to better pressure the opposing QBs with the darling Browncos.

    Phew!

    Ahhhhhh.....Pure Bliss!!!!!!!

    Thanks Jake...

    I can always count on you.

    See....It doesn't matter how good your overall record with the Donkeys is. You cannot, and will not win the big game. You cannot beat Indy when it counts. You now cannot beat the Bolts when it counts. You beat the normal teams. You beat teams that are missing players (See New England & Kansas City eariler this season) and you beat teams that have no shot at all (See the Raiders). But that's it.

    You're nothing but a fluff quarterback.

    Have a nice time holding the clipboard along with your buddies like Mark Brunell and Drew Bledsoe.

    It has ben 16 years since I lived in Colorado and had the Rocky at my doorstep. So having the Rocky on my desktop is almost as good. Your toons are as always great. As a matter of fact I have some of your best Elways on the wall.
    Great stuff.
