Probably shouldn’t name a post like I did since it’s a team sport but could help myself. Twenty-one catches is amazing … no … AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Although bittersweet and not enough for the win, simply AMAZING!! Like a man amongst boys. At times Orton would just look right at him and go to him. That can get dangerous, but yesterday it worked.
So, really not much to say other than we’re a pretty DANG good team if we didn’t make mistakes. I have to remark on what Head Coach Josh McDaniels said. “You know where the bar is.” We have the ability to play to it but mistakes, penalties and efficiencies killed us. Short yardage? Missed assignments. Period. No one ever crosses your face that your suppose to block…PERIOD.
Stats: We won T.O.P. and total net yards, net yards rushed, carries, and others. Not the red zone and not when and where it counted. That’s the difference between a Good Team and a GREAT Team. Look at how many teams are 7-6. Crazy year to still have two 13-0 Teams. I’d have never thought I’d see it.
Defense, WOW, WOW, WOW, you guys are unbelievable. D.J. Williams looked like they cloned him, he was all over the field. They held the Colts to what 38 yards rushing and 66 yards passing in the entire second half. DB’s were the difference too with great coverage…even though pretty beat up right now.
Oh, and who cares about the coin flip … really, if we’d have held them it wouldn’t even be a comment in the papers … typical of the press.
Now, did any of you see the Cardinals earlier in the year? I thought they were pathetic and now they’ve won 4-of-5 and mainly on the road. December is always an interesting month in the NFL. Injuries start to play a big part or avoiding injuries. (not sure how you do that, other than not play a guy). I’d never do that … maybe rest them a little but, that’s it.
