I think the Broncos are just going to win. They're in shape and they're hot now- early in the season and they typically win their first two games.

The Broncos are looking at revenge and I think they'll get it because they're gonna stop the run and stop the Chargers on 3rd and long and hopefully 3rd and short and get the offense out there. While the offense is out there, they're not gonna self-destruct in the red-zone and punch it in for touchdowns. Totally different story from last year.

I don't know what's going on with the Chargers for sure. They sure gave the Patriots all they could handle last year. But they're off to a slow start and they've got to find a way from keeping Rivers from getting his head ripped off.

I predict pain. It's gonna be a
reckoning.

21 - 3! Lighting the bolts up! Cutler to Marshall and Scheffler is as sharp as ever. All the work those three have done since they came in the league together is paying off. You can kinda tell the confidence that Shannahan has in Cutler. This is the first time ever I would say we are a pass first team since Shannahan has been coach. This game won't be complete until Phillips Rivers apologizes for the stunt he pulled last year.

hahaha. the broncos can only beat the charges through the refs. That was 14 undeserved points due to the refs. Congratulations for winning an undeserved game.

Denver was inside the San Diego 10 yard line down by 7 when Cutler fumbled, but the ref blew the whistle (ref was wrong) during the play because he felt it was a forward pass. The fumble counts, but the ball is dead where it dropped. So instead of San Diego ball (they recovered and that would have essentially ended the game) we got it at the San Diego 10 yard line where the ball dropped. Bad call by the ref that worked in our favor. I'm not complaining. It will be one of the main football topics of the week. You will see more than enough of it.

Brandon Marshall is sick.

18 receptions coming off a suspension, the guy must have had velcro grafted to his skin on his week off. I wonder what the NFL single game record for receptions is.

Terrell Owens has that record with 20 catches in 2000.
