    You’re reaching on this one Hair. You can like Palmer and also like Flynn. Palmer isn’t here anymore.
    ======================================================

    Thanks. I try very hard to stay out of Palmer debates these days.

  • Marks hair

    rob. you said he was worth the money and that you wanted to keep him.. I’m not talking about any predictions you made you said you wanted Palmer to stay.. i argued that I wanted him and his big bloated salary to leave… i said that it would help us. now you seem to agree that shipping him out has helped us.. right?? I mean you really like Flynn and he’s cheap. that extra money went to vet players that are helping us right now… so my point is, if you’re following…
    I was right to want to trade Palmer.. you were wrong to want to keep him. get it?

    Which numbers? Rating after 2 games? Shocking? Or maybe ints? Flynn has no stats. 28 yr old and 2 games. Wow.
    ***********
    He has enuff numbers and film to make an assessment. Given a good vast, he can fly.

    He won a national championship.

    Everything I have seen from his been good.

    Earlier I was reading how hue was so great and rm shoulfa kept him.
    I liked hue resilts for the most part,but his personality got old.quick.
    Rm couldnt of kept hue andalso tried to instill this shut up and do your job, no wanna bees attitude.
    Wasnt hue pretty much the exact opposite?

    I like Flynn but it’s a very small sample.. I’m just glad we’re running a system he’s very good in..

  • Raiderfusion

    SnBG: I’d say I agree with you. Too many Negative Nabobs in here for me too. I believe they’re going to have a solid year. Now a solid year might only mean 8-8, but I’m OK with that, in fact after last year I’d be thrilled with that. Every part of the team has been up grated.

    ********
    Not true. I NEVER said he was worth the money.

    I said I was conflicted. I said he was a quality nfl qb who made too much actually.

    I said it would make sense to trade his salary IF WE GOT OUR FUTURE QB AND PRYOR WAS NOT THAT.

    There were plenty of guys who wanted him to stay no matter what. I wasn’t one of them.

    I said he was mild better than Pryor and it would only make sense to trade him for picks of we picked up our future.

    Don’t u remember me leading the geno charge? (until his ridiculous display at the draft)

  • SnBG

    Tebow and the Donks got to the playoffs because of Allens D. Kept them in games.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Think it was SeyBush that reported that Watson had a calf wrap and that’s probably the reason he’s been shelved.

    It can’t be bcz he’s out of shape or overweight, right ?

    I mean, Frank Middleton played for this team.

    Janikowski clanks right upright and it bounces in out of King’s hold

    ******************************

    Janikowski missed a short kick in the preseason last year from a King hold, and he stared him down afterwards.

    He might just be missing them on purpose at this stage.
    ===============================================

    He’s practicing bouncing it off the upright so a Raider can catch it for a TD. What’s the rule on that? I know the other team can advance it.

  • Marks hair

    I think we have upgraded the special teams.. the secondary. the linebackers.. and the quarterbacks. but all that being said I still think we look like we’re a six to eight win team..
    however I have not seen us play at all, it’s still very early and they could change my opinion.

    Oh lord, help me….In his first season as coordinator in Denver, Allen helped the Broncos improve from allowing a league-worst 29.4 points and 390.8 yards per game to ranking 20th in yards (357.8) and 24th in points (24.4) this season on the way to an AFC West title.

    The Broncos increased their sack total from 23 to 41 as the Broncos were tied for the sixth-most blitzes on pass plays in the league this season, according to STATS LLC.!

    Confusing offensive lines, Denver has installed complex blitz packages that have resulted in four sacks coming from the secondary. The increased pressure has resulted in six interceptions (23rd), just four less than the team recorded in nearly half as many games last season (30th).

    Against the run, the Broncos numbers have also greatly improved. Having allowed 1,058 rushing yards, Denver’s defense ranks sixteenth out of thirty-two teams. Last season, Denver allowed 2,473 rushing yards, which ranked second to last.

    The Broncos have also done a better job this season of eliminating big plays. In 2010, the Broncos allowed 22 runs of twenty or more yards (32nd) and five rushes of forty or more yards (T-31st). Through nine games this season, the Broncos have allowed eight runs of twenty or more yards (21st) and just one of forty or more yards (T-2nd).

    Denver has allowed the ninth-least rushing touchdowns (5) this year, compared to the thirty-second most allowed last year (26). The team that allowed an NFL-worst 55 touchdowns in 2010 is on pace to surrender 46 this season. The difference in nine fewer touchdowns is 54 points (not including extra points).

    The numbers clearly show that while the Broncos defense still leaves a lot to be desired, the unit is tremendously improved from last season. Much of the credit for Denver’s defensive turnaround should be given to Allen.
