Hell, I don't even know the spread. As for picking them to cover I'd have thought the oddsmakers would make them the underdog.

Pittsburgh is favored by 3.

If Denver loses by more than three, I lose the bet. So they have to cover the three.

I know how betting the spread goes but didn't know the exact points. So, the Broncos are underdogs, huh? Heh heh heh, good. We got 'em right where we want 'em.

If I do, it will be because Roethlisberger does some amazing shit again. That guy wins ugly, but he sure does win.

Just like last year, the Steelers "D" is covering the lack of scoring.

  1. Steelers, once again, are the real deal. Impressive team both ways. The better team one
  2. We need to evaluate QB, if you can only throw it 15 yards good D's will dominate- makes for no Running game.
  3. Anyone one know any High School Punters that would like to earn some weekend cash?
  4. Fuck the Gints, Why did those Martha Fockers assume they had a win and quit?
  5. Redskins coming up, weak ass teams are always a bit scary in the NFL. They want a win.

Observations:
1) Champ Bailey looked old and slow.
2) Mitch Berger is NOT the answer at punter.
3) 2 man routes will not work against the upper eschelon teams.
4) I still like Orton, but he's not the type of QB that can take over a game with his arm. He needs some help. When he is protected, he can be great. He's not getting the protection he needs. Also he needs more run-support. The Broncos were 1 dimentional from the opening whistle.
5) The mid game adjustments on both sides of the ball that were taking place in the first 6 games are not having the same effect.
6) Knowshon Moreno needs more work on his blitz pickups.
7) The O-line (see #4)

That being said, the Redskins are just the ticket to help get the Broncos back on track. And, they still have 2 games against KC.

The Broncos have been exposed the last 2 weeks. I'm not giving up on them at all, but its time to tighten it up and finish strong. The SanDiego game now looms large on the horizon. That becomes a must-win game if they want to win the division.
