It seems a lot of you are chalking this one up as a win just based on "hate" or "revenge" or the mythical "Arrowhead factor."
Unfortunately the NFL doesn't really work that way.The Broncos proved to me they were a better football team last time. They dominated our secondary, dominated our defensive line and dominated our running game.
What has changed?
Well, we get Kendrick Lewis back, but we probably won't have Flowers. That's a net loss.
Bowe and Cassel have suddenly become Montana and Rice, but we won't be sneaking up on Denver in that regard for sure. I don't see Champ Bailey allowing the same type of completions he did in the first game simply because it's unlikely we'll be playing against a Cover 4 shell defense down 5 touchdowns.
Based on the first game I wouldn't be surprised if we have a very tough time running the football, especially if Albert is still gimpy. And this week all those throws that Anderson missed...they get completed. All those passes the Seahawks dropped...they get caught.
Throw in the fact that Haley's finger ensured the Broncos will be UP for this game...and we're going to have a dogfight on our hands. This won't be a blowout...well, I take that back. The Broncos might just blow US out again.
