Kicked Away

So real hardcore hip-hop continue wreck it
And all sucker MC's duck down and get the message...

PROPS and DROPS from the Buffs' season ending heartbreaker and the Broncos' frigid win versus the Jets:

PROPS: The Buff special teams finally came to play; Aric Goodman made a kick (gasp!), kickoffs were deep, punting was average, and Josh Smith had the Huskers so rattled that they were squibing and popping kicks up. The day's and perhaps the Buffs' highlight of the year was a botched Husker fake FG, which Jimmy Smith sniffed out the holder flip (check the Boston College team for how to execute it) and took it to the house to tie the score going into half. The play was apparently a result of some scouting from Husker Head Yeller Bo Pelini's LSU days. However, the one DROP on special teams was on the pull-it-out-our-ass 57 yard game winner, which the Buffs didn't a) rush every player or b) burn their timeout to ice the kicker. Again, check Nick Saban who called a TO to perfection to make the Auburn kicker kick it twice-and miss. Think making their Napoleon Dynamite kicker lookalike kick it half a mile twice wouldn't have mattered?

PROPS: The Bronco short passing game reaped benefits and big chunks of yardage all day lon at he Meadowlands. Quick outs to Tony Scheffler, Daniel Graham, and Eddie Royal kept the Jets' secondary on edge all day and opened Brandon Stokely for the Broncos' final TD. Scheffler looks to be a full speed, as he was roaming free throughout the secondary most of the night. Most LBs will find it tough to match up with Scheffler, as he could even command double teams.

DROPS: The ABC telecast might as well have been on the Big Red Sports Network. Ron Franklin and Ed Cunnigham should turn in their journalist cards after that one. All afternoon the running commentary was decidely one-sided, on everthing from Husker fan's knowledge to how Nebraska "let down" when CU would score. Two teams in this game, fellas, let's call it even.

DROPS: Ditto for CBS' Rich Gannon during the Donks' telecast, who bungled names, calls, and offered bizarre analysis. And would it hurt in this technological world to get a camera that is immune to cold weather and moisture?

PROPS: The Donks' defesive backfield, still not at full capacity, had an admirable game against the NFL's hottest offense and QB in the Jet's Brett Favre. Vernon Fox, an afterthought from the waiver wire a few weeks back, had a solid game including a TD return on a fumble. Calvin Lowry, maligned on these pages in the past, stepped in when a litany of injuries befell the Donks in the NJ cold, stepped in and played well. Witness the final "garbage time" drive where the D stood tall when the Jets were in strictly pass mode and kept them out of the end zone.

PROPS: The best running performance at Invesco Field this year? That would be Wheat Ridge RB and CU commit Parker Orms, who tallied 275 yards and five TDs in their championship win.

DROPS: The CU defense, especially the DL, logged more time on the field than a mother in line at ToysR'Us this Friday. Nebraska was cracking off too long of runs on first downs, leaving the clock churning and managable second and third downs. The time of possession was particularly skewed by quick CU scores, but without the depth, the CU defense could never get that keen three-and-out.

why not put in Hansen in the drive before neb's last drive? We're going to run anyway, why not get the fleet footed kid in there.

Eh, you could do that but Cody was managing the game just fine.

This one was all about missed opportunity. I mean, I know Cody is short and all, but TWO tipped passes intercepted by linemen? You couldn't recreate that if you tried. And lest we forget the fumble on the kickoff that bounced right into Nebraska's hands right after the CU score to make it 31-27.

You need breaks in games like these, and Nebraska got them.

All that said, I'll take the effort by the Buffs. I don't like losing to the Bugeaters ever, but forcing a kid make a 57 yard field goal to win it is pretty good.

Look at that photo, Brad Jones is just loafing in there. If he comes hard off the edge, maybe the kid is just a bit distracted.

Losing to Lick-a-lotta-Lincoln always hurts, but this one especially.

The Broncos made up for it a big. Loved the short passing game...where was this against the Raiders when we were throwing bombs all game? For all the credit Cutler gets for spreading the ball around, he missed it and that damn Raiders game. Bottom line? Playoffs!

My hat is off to CU for how hard they fought, but I have to question the late game play calling by Dan Hawkins. Two no-gainer quarterback draws on the last drive?

I'm not calling for the guy's head or anything, but inept play calling near the ends of games is becoming a bit of a recurring theme.

^BCT- couldnt of hurt, especially since they ran those crazy draws with him

^Spot- The game showed Cody's limitations. He did have an alright game, but those tips? Ugh.

^Anon- The rush was non-existent. There wouldn't be fake after Bo's debacle at the half.

^Adam- Can we just erase the Raiders game from our schedule?

^Homon- Horrible calls. The lane was there on the draws for at least 4-5 yds but Cody doesn't have the speed. Someone else brought up the power I was used once and it got 6 yds. why not use it there?
