Terrible Toweled Off


Cause in my physical, I can express through song
Delete stress like Motrin, then extend strong...


PROPS and DROPS from the dramtic Buff win over Texas A&M and the Broncos' beatdown at the hands of the Steelers:

DROPS: You knew it was coming, you just knew eventually Kyle Orton would go all crappy on the Donks. Last night it happened against one of the most opportunistic defenses in the league. Orton's INTs weren't the result of disguised coverages, tipped balls, or miscommunication with the receivers, they were just crappy-ass throws. The TD return INT saw a ball thrown in the direction of Knowshon Moreno (who was being covered by a noseguard and the umpire) where it probably should've been thrown into the ground. Polamula's pick was being thrown to the hot dog vendor in the north stands.

DROPS: Bill McCartney used to say "discretion is the greater part of valor." Apparently that phrase hasn't filtered to some of the CU AD, the head coach, or some players. After the game, all three were throwing the fans who wore powder blue under the Buff Bus. I can give the players somewhat of a pass (although that can also be a reflection of their coach) but I cant imagine why Dan Hawkins or the AD would go out of their way to disparage the fans who wore blue (yet cheered for the team, some rushed the field, and simply showed up!)

DROPS: Penalties continue to ravage the Buffs, as they had a bevy of them again versus the Aggies. It's not as if the refs are flag happy either: witness the non-calls that A & M got on some borderline personal fouls. It is some more bone headed play; again the Buffs were flagged for a delay of game coming out of a TV timeout.

DROPS: For the second straight week the Bronco opponent got the better of the halftime adjustments. The Steelers used their bunch formation sparingly early in the game, with Mike Wallace (who looks great after all those years on '60 Minutes') peeling off for a quick out route. That effectively loosened up the Donk D, as the Steelers ran out of the formation repeatedly in the 2nd half, but rather ran counters for big chunks of yards by Rashard Mendenhall. Heath Miller had a huge game blocking on those runs.

DROPS: Mitch Berger, Bronco punter: you've had a nice run buddy. Time for McD and crew to assemble the punting posse for the Tuesday tryouts. Hey, the Rapids aren't in the playoffs, maybe one of them can moonlight.

PROPS: As the Buff O-Line more and more resembles a gushing dam, Tyler Hansen is doing his best Steve Young impression. Versus a sea level team like A & M this can take it's toll by the 4th quarter, and that is exactly when the Buffs seemed perky while the Aggies wilted.

PROPS: The Steelers' coaching staff's coats looked like something from a mid-80s breakdance movie. Funky fresh!

PROPS: Dan Hawkins isn't going to win many coaching wit battles versus Mike Sherman, or Sherman Douglas, General Sherman, or Sherman Hemsley, but his staff had a few nice calls throughout the game. One was invloving Marques Simas more in the game plan, as he had a breakout game. Two was dusting off the option play that has been shuttered for three years under Hawk on the second to last TD. Problem was, it seems that if they would've run that the rest of the game with Hansen and Rodney Stweart, the A & M defense wouldn't had been able to keep up and there would be no need for the late heroics.

DROPS: Champ Bailey had maybe his worst game in a Bronco jersey. Santonio Holmes had his way with him, and Hines Ward's Edwin Moses impersonation will have players clowning #24 for the entire year. The big question will be is this the beginning of Champ slowing down or just an off game versus the Super Bowl MVP?

Personally, I've thought Bailey was on the downswing the last couple of years. I think it was disguised by the fact that the Denver D was so terrible that it was hard to pinpoint. But I don't think it's coincidence that more and more teams are throwing at him, his good play in the Dalls game aside.

It also looks like the O-Line really, really misses Ryan Harris as they've had a really hard time keeping the pass rush off Orton. He is what he is, and when he's getting a ton of pressure you'll see it's harder to manage the game.

Oh well, they should at least get an opportunity to destroy Washington this week.

Polumbus did alright, but there was one play where the Pit LB knocked him off his feet backwards! Harris would clobbered the guy.

The Broncos will not be "destroying" anyone. This team is not very good.
