I agree with most of you, last night was tough to watch. Two weeks in a row, much more tough. Our offense looks a little inept, which is a surprise, but certainly not something that can't be fixed. McDaniels, I still have faith! But let's take a look at what we've accomplished before we go bandwagon-jumping insane. Following the Oakland game, we began what I considered to be 'the guantlet' of our schedule. Dallas, New England, San Diego, Baltimore, Pittsburgh. Not including our games with them, those teams are a combined 25-10. Look at that number! That's a really rough stretch of games, not a one of them with less than a .500 record. And we walked out of the guantlet 3-2. I'm not freaking out, I'm actually pretty pleased.
However, this Sunday I think is even more important than last night's debacle. It's against a non-conference opponent, true, but the Redskins are a mess. If you need me to explain why we should win this game, you haven't watched any football this year. Losing to Pitt and Baltimore was hard, but those two teams were in the AFC Championship last year, and they were the tail end of a really hard string of games for us. But not succeeding at Washington? That, I believe, would be a much more painful blow than these last two losses combined.
We won 3 of the 5 games we weren't supposed to win. Good for Broncos!! Now, we HAVE HAVE HAVE to win these games we are supposed to. That, my friends, is how we still go 12-4, 13-3, or better. There's not a single game we can't win, but we gotta win the games we should win!
