With no pressure, Manning washes Broncos

Peyton Manning drops back, has time, has more time, checks his e-mail, IM's a buddy, still looking, throws, complete.

Manning sliced and diced a Broncos defense that was the league's elite in points allowed and Adam Vinatieri struck the final blow, a 37-yard field on the game's final snap as the Indianapolis Colts stayed undefeated at 7-0 while beating the Broncos 34-31.

Not much solace to Broncos fans, but this was one wonderful football game; easily the best in the NFL this season. Denver's offense came alive, Jake Plummer was better, but the defense put alarmingly little presure on the league's best quarterback.

Where did the Broncos' defense go wrong? Were they simply exposed by the league's best team? Why didn't they blitz more? Are you encouraged by the play of Plummer and the offense? Do you think the Colts and Broncos will meet again in the AFC championship?

    We were at that game yesterday. The fans in the stands were pulling out their hair. Between no pass rush and Darrent Williams getting beat like a drum all day long, it was frustrating to watch at times. Great game though, got a little sunburned.

    Amazingly, it is the Broncos defense not Plummer who can under no circumstances take this team to a Superbowl win. If they can not cover while blitzing and can not rush the quarterback with the front four, they will never get past the top teams in the NFL. As good as the Browncos are at holding the line of scrimmage, not one of them is a serious pass rusher.

    I was and still am stunned that they did not deal with this obvious problem during the off season, and thought they were living on borrowed time during the nice six game run.

    It was a great football game. It showed that the Broncos belong with the elite of the league. A little more pressure in the playoffs, we beat Indy. Peyton Manning is the best QB in the league. Broncos are right on track. Just take care of business in the division and their back where they were last year. Playing the the AFC Championship, and the winner will win the Super Bowl.

    I think blitzing more wouldn't resulted in a blow-out win for the colts instead of the close finish it was. Maybe adjustments for Darrent Williams would have been more effective. However, I really think the game plan was NOT executed well enough. That was, to execute offensively to control the ball and the clock and keep Manning on the sidelines. If Plummer completes that pass on the last series, I think the broncos win. Heck, if plummer would have completed a wide open out to Walker on their first series of the third, I think we may have scored and put too much pressure on the colts to catch up. Would a shoulda coulda...

    It was a very entertaining game. No doubt about that. Everyone has bashed the offense all year but the offense did everything it needed to do yesterday. They scored 31 points but the defense couldn't do it's job and shut down the Colt's one time when they needed to. Instead of everyone gushing about Manning being so perfect we ought to ask where the defense was when it counted. Other defenses have held the Colt's to less points but our supposedly great defense couldn't shut them down one time in the second half.

    well, and A for effort.

    Bottomline is, you don't beat Maiing and the Colts with DBs. You beat them with a ferocious pass rush, blitz or no blitz. If you want a recipe on how to beat the Colts, look at how the Chargers and Steelers did it last year. We could have 6 Champ Baileys and that man would still pick us apart.

    But again, great game... but we are obviously not quite there yet.

    Darrent Williams was absolutely awful yesterday. Sure the pressure wasn´t on Manning like it should have been but Williams did not stop one pass to Wayne. Denver should look at replacing this bum, unbeleivable especially after Darrent Williams made these comments in an article before the game "They're going to throw the ball wherever they want to throw it, just like we're going to play hard against whoever we play," said Williams, who'll start alongside Bailey. "But if they want to throw the ball and pick on me, I'm going to make them pay. . . . I'm not going to say I'm going to defend every ball. But you throw the ball 10-12 times on my side? I guarantee you I'm going to get one or two picks. Guaranteed."¨ Wow, I want my money back Darrent, you failed and lost a huge game that could mean facing a tough team on the road in the playoffs. It hurts even more after all the guys played so well, but one guy lets us down. I hope Shanahan addresses this soon.

    The problem has ALWAYS been that Coyer is sooooo afraid of getting beat deep that he refuses to put the corners up tight on the receivers. This happened in the Colts losses, and the Pittsburgh loss in the championship last year.

    Instead, we give the receivers the first five yards, who blow past or make a cut and our corners are at a standstill flat-footed.

    If our defense is predicated on speed, use that speed to an advantage. When you play off with the corners, you negate their speed. Champ and Darrent can keep up with almost anyone. Give them the opportunity to do so.

    I remember when the Broncos beat the Rams at home several years ago, we beat up their receivers, played tight coverage and got physical. That is exactly how you beat the Colts. Just ask the Patriots.

    If we continue to play off the receivers, we're going to relive the same scene over and over against the better teams. Especially in the playoffs.

    BTW -- thanks to Jake for giving the ball up on our 10 yardline.

    The defense didn't tackle. How many times did they hit air, where the Colts player had been a second before? And Al Wilson - in the first half he blew through the line of scrimmage and hit Addai low and hard, but he never even tried to grab Addai, who just bounced off and went wide while Wilson fell down. Addai turned what should have been a two yard loss into a nice gain

    The last time I saw a cornerback getting so burned mentally was the Eddie McCaffrey matchup with Shawn Springs. I didn't see one play where Darrent Williams didn't have the size, strength, or speed to stay with Reggie Wayne. All game long though, Darrent was biting on great plants, double moves, and was constantly getting turned around, and would lose his man within the scheme. Darrent Williams is a great player, he's a great cover corner, and a football player which is hard to find at that position. He'll bounce back from this, there is no doubt. We can take solace in that he never got burned for not having the physical tools, he just looked lost mentally against great route running and the best passing game the NFL has ever seen. Move the free safety over on Wayne and jam him off the line ala a punt defense, and we win this game.

    OUCH,

    MAN THIS ONE HURTS. WAY YO GO OFFENSE, BUT COME ON DEFENSE.

    I KNOW EVERYONE WILL BLAME DARRENT WILLIAMS FOR NOT PLAYING WELL BUT WHAT ABOUT THE COACHING STAFF FOR NOT MAKING ANY ADJUSTMENTS. THE COLTS RAN A COME-BACK ROUTE AT-LEAST 12 TIMES. A TWINKIE COULD PUT MORE PRESSURE ON PEYTON THAN OUR D-LINE.

    IF YOU WANT TO PLAY THE BLAME GAME I SAY PUT IN ON THE COACHES FOR NOT ADJUSTING.

    AS I LOOK INTO MY CRYSTAL BALL I SEE DRAFT PICKS SPENT ON A DE, DT, AND POSSIBLY A DB.

    IN CLOSING HOW OFTEN TO WE GET PUSHED AROUND IN OUR HOUSE? NOT VERY OFTEN. THIS TEAM STILL NEEDS A LOT OF WORK AND WE BETTER MAKE CHAGES BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW IT WILL BE EVEN HARDER TO BEAT THE COLTS IN THE PLAYOFFS IN THEIR HOUSE.

    How did Pittsburgh beat Indy last year? By blitzing Manning most of the game and keeping him off balance. The blitzes the Broncos used yesterday were delayed blitzes which do no good against Manning. He got rid of the ball before the delayed blitzing linebackers even got to the line of scrimmage. I know Manning is a great QB, but the Broncos gave him too much respect in being afraid to show their blitzes before the snap. Very bad game plan by Denver. No adjustments were made. The Broncos were hoping the Colts would make a mistake instead of Denver forcing one.

    I love our defense, just not our stupid little "zone" defense. Not only did we get no pressure on Peyton all day, he has 4 receivers to choose from when all of our guys are behind them. This "soft zone" will cost us an appearance in Miami as it did last year. Get it together Coyer, come up with a plan that doesn't involve our players standing there not attacking.

    A good halftime adjustment would of been to put Bailey on Wayne and let Harrison try to beat us with Williams. I feel Wayne is much more of a threat with our defensive scheme than Harrison is? Also blitz on the start of the play, rather all the delay blitzes which rarely do much. Our line was pathetic however, even Bledsoe could of passed for 300 yds. yesterday and he can barely walk anymore?

    Let Plummer be Plummer. He's a team leader that knows how to keep the other team quessing. With a few adjustments this team will be around at playoff time.

    Tatum Bell and Larry Coyer were the biggest problems the Broncos had. I don't know why everyone thinks T. Bell is so good. He runs at the line for minimal-to-no gain. Mike Bell does the same thing and gets 3 yards or so, kind of like Mike Anderson. T. Bell should be swapped for Mike.

    Larry Coyer had our DBs playing behind the receivers all day, basically conceding any kind of short pass, and Peyton is too good to NOT hit those all day long, which he did (see 32 of 37 pass attempts). Two times we did man-up on Reggie Wayne, and on those occasions he ran right by, past the last Broncos defenders, for easy TD catches. The Broncos pretty much never blitzed, except for on the last Colts third down play, where everyone and their mother knew the blitz was coming.

    Yesterday, I think the Brroncos played a close to perfect game against the Colts, who wound up playing a perfect game. We got beat by a last second field goal people! Who doesn't think we run the ball down that team's sieve of a defense for another touchdown if time had not run out?

    I think you can point to one pivotal series that gave the Colts the perfect conditions to perform their miracle game win. Had we just made a half a loaf scoring drive to start the second half, an entirely different game would have transpired. We needed to stand up right there and say we had a chance to put that team away with another 80 yard drive for six and using half of the third quarter doing it. We really lost a tempo there and we gave the Colts a big momentum shift doing the three and out on that one important series. Hopefully, the offense learns that lesson because the Colts are a team prime for the picking. They got the "touch" right now but come December I think they become very exposed.

    Three things that stick up from the game:
    1-A very naive defensive game plan against Manning. Why, oh why, didn't Coyer set up adjustments to give help to Darrent while he was getting more burned than a stock car tire by Wayne. I kept saying to myself "Where's Foxworth?". I couldn't see the guy the whole game. He should've helped out Darrent in those critical moments, even if it meant to double-team Wayne, but they should´ve stopped the bleeding.
    2-See No.18, play dead: I don't know if this is more than a psychological aspect from the defensive players and coaching staff, but every time we see Manning under center, we just poop our pants. This game felt like deja-vú all over, not from the playoffs, but from the game Rich Gannon came to our house on a Monday Night and spanked us crazy, going over a 90% completion pct., plus directing our season down the drain after that night. We just need an overhauled game plan against Manning.
    3-The "Unfinished Business" motto from our 1st. Super Bowl-winning season: Do you remember that motto? In the 1997-1998 season, that one gave us an aura of anger and revenge over teams that made us look pathetic during past seasons or post seasons. Right after the Jags beat us in the playoffs a year before, we returned the favor the next year, punishing them to the point of embarrasment and beating them twice. We also scored a 63-yard FG courtesy of Elam in one of those games. Then later, we went back to KC and Pitt, to teams that made us look awful in that season, and again returned the favor, beating them at their backyard. My point: Simple, really. I didn't see any fire from those players (except the O) yesterday that made them react to those two maulings from post-season's past. I thought they were gonna be ultra fired up, and make sure Manning would remember October 29, 2006 as a day of pain. Man, if I had played yesterday, I'd have blitzed No.18 to death. He'd have made me pay several times, but he'd had known that I was gonna be there all afternoon, until I ripped his head off.

    The season is still young, but closer and closer we're getting to the meaty part of the schedule. If we can go 4-0 over the next 4 weeks, we'll be ok. San Diego is good, but they have too many issues, especially with their D, with the loss of so many players, which will cripple them sooner or later. The Chefs don't have enough. We already have tie-breakers over sure division-winners New England and Baltimore, so we have to get more consistent. Plummer has to be more focused and play like he did yesterday, although I cannot blame the man from yesterday's loss, alas he did lose the ball at a pivotal field position. Games like those make you grow and mature, but against Indy, I don't know if I'm ready to hear more excuses. Maybe, just maybe, Shanny and the coaches didn't want to show Manning what's in store for a possible rematch in January. Then, just then, we'll know what they'll do.

    Keep this in mind: Manning ALWAYS looks good in the regular season. He's a CHOKER in the post season. The media loves him, because he brings "glitz" to every sunday afternoon and that's good for the league's TV ratings , but when it's time to put up in the playoffs, he just shuts up.

    It's a tough, deppresing loss, but one that can be forgotten if we use the "Unfinished business" mentality by January 07, at the RCA Dome.

    Go Broncos!!

    This game, gang, illustrates why the Broncos drafted Jay Cutler. When you have a Cutler, a John Elway, or a Peyton Manning, you have the ability to rip a team on almost every play.

    We have a Plummer, a mediocre qb who is unable to play well in big games. The Broncos learned long ago (thanks to Elway) that the blueprint for winning it all is to make sure you have a superstar QB.

    When Denver signed Plummer, it condemned this team to years of mediocrity, which is exactly what we've seen. So, here we are whining about Jake this and Jake that. This all falls on Shanahan and Bowlen. Don't get me wrong, I think those two are a powerful force that has kept the Broncos compeititive. But they disregarded the Elway Lesson when they took a chance on Plummer. he was never going to be anything more than what he was in Arizona.

    So, what does all this mean at this moment? Starting Cutler against the Colts wouldn't have worked--that would be asking way too much of the kid--but the fact the Denver failed to bring in a studly superstar quarterback years ago is costing them now.

    A stud QB, you see, could have run up the score on the Colts in the first quarter, putting the game well out of reach by the time Manning heated up for a rally that would have fallen short. This Denver team, hampered by the lack of a dangerous QB, at least last weekend, has demonstrated that it can't punish a top tier team like the Colts.

    What's that old saying? You get what you pay for?

I am not a coach but i have never understood using a zone defense against a QB like Peyton Manning. give him time and you get picked apart. While i hated to loose to the Colts once again i was relatively happy with the way the team played. Does eveyone realize that just 2 plays made the difference in this game. The fumble by Jake, which if the team had hurried up and snapped the ball they would not have time to review. And the third down missed pass in the final 2 minutes of the 4th quater. change the outcome of either play and we would have won the game.

    Great game to watch, very disheartening ending. However, you have to credit the fight and competitive nature of the Broncos. Time and time again they responded with big drives to take the lead. Jake was incredible. Accurate, nimble, and very gutsy. In the end, it was the lack of pressure on Manning that cost us. I think if Gerard Warren plays, the push is there, and it frees up the outside and occassional blitz. Yes, the loss hurts, but now it's time to back the team and go forward. As for the Jake bashers on the fumble, get a clue. Three guys hammered him, and Manning was never touched. Worse yet, if Denver just snaps the ball on 4th down, the review is a not even an option. Hang in there Broncos fans, and put this behind you. A very irritated Steelers team awaits us at Heinz Field.

Like Roc Alexander against Indi and Dominque Foxworth against Pittsburgh in the playoffs, Darrent Williams looked terrible. It's too bad Williams didn't get any help from Coyer and it's too bad he is in denial regarding how bad he actually played. At the same time, Peyton Manning's jersey was practically as clean as it was at the start of the game which was telling of the lack of pressure from the D-line.

    9-7? Admit it, you hate the Broncos just because you do. Sunday was a character building game. Win or lose, the team is better off for having gone through that type of game.

    Beating the Colts is an up and down the field shootout, where eating up the clock becomes its own tactical move. No defense is going to be able to 3 and out that team for the rest of the year (unless Manning gets hurt), and simply outscoring them is a very attainable game plan. A loss could be even better in the sense that it keeps this team hungry. Yeah, that's it. The loss was actually a good thing...

    Of course, 40 years of Burronco pessimism hangs tough in the average Denver fan, but I really believe we take it to the Steelers this next game, and we then go on to make Marty Schottenheimer's yearly "can't beat the Burroncos" dream come true.

    12-4 is the worst that this team will do GeeDee. Broncos! Love em or leave Colorado now.

    Broncos needed to go to a six defensive back set. Like how the packers defeated the 49ers in the nfc champtionships years back.

    Colts team is actually weaker this year with James gone. The running game is weaker. You know Colts are going to go shotgun and throw.

    Broncos coaching is very poor with adjustments. Shanny has to make a change at defensive coordinator.

    Colts will get eat up playing the Bears. Manning is like Brady. They can be beat. Broncos don't have the team to do it though. They still need a young Trevor pryce.
