Default 21-7 its not over

We need to run the ball...TO's will kill any team....but not us...Denver is not that good...Willie has over 50 yrds w/ only 10 carries

WE can come back...

Why don't we just line up with 3 TE's and run the ball on them???

honestly, i don't think our offense is the problem here. we need to stop that screen pass and get some pressure.

Worst Offensive game plan ever developed by a staff... Broncos are the worst rushing defensive unit and we are probably the best rushing team... What do we do... Throw the ball all over the friggin field...

ewww i do think our offense is the problem. offense and defense both. we've had a few good runs, but aside from that, denver is breaking our O line on many occasions. we can't stop their offense either??? terrible, but i see some signs of life....we just need a good stop on denver's next possession.

well, it's over now.... i really thought the broncos played a hell of a game! hopefully we learn some things.

a loss today is far from the end of the world, it is almost more concerning to see your team play poorly and win, it is hard to change things when you win.

^^ i agree. for some reason, the broncos just wanted it more. they converted key offensive plays when it mattered and were able to control our run game.

the problem with pounding the running game was...


a. the game started out like a shootout
b. if the running game starts slow, you end up with 3rd and long
c. therefore you become one dimensional on third downs
d. if you don't convert 3rd downs, your defense has to stop them (which was not happening for the first half of the game.

i questioned some of these concerns about our running game starting slowly in the seattle game and thought i might get run out of town(http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=20471). if the bronco offense was as bad as the seattle offense, it could have been 28 - 0 today!

that said, i think we should have run the ball more. especially right in the beginning
