By the numbers: Week 2 PLAYMAKERS


Here's my week two update of who on the Denver Broncos is making plays using a scoring system I came up with. My comments follow the data.

Notes:

-Our first Q pt total by the offense was .7. I guarantee (I hope) that that will be the worst first quarter of the season. I'm glad it's over.

-Manning stunk early on, AND the Atlanta defense was swarming, active, ball hawking. I think Manning deserves some of the blame, but goodness Atlanta's D looked good. They deserve some of the credit too.

-STAT OF THE WEEK: Manning is 4-15 when he has 3 or more Turnovers in a game. It's happened every 11th start (once or twice a year). It can be expected from every human being I suppose. Interestingly enough, one of those wins was against Denver in 2009; one of the losses was by only 2 pts against San Diego where he threw 6 picks! It was in the realm of possibility we still could have won, but Moreno didn't help us any when he put the ball on the ground for turnover #4.

-I want less Moreno, and more Hillman. Anybody agree?

-McGahee gets the gameball on offense. He seriously produced. Too bad we were behind so bad so we couldn't use the running game more, because it was working.

Notes:

-Nobody was lights out exactly. Of course Von was effective, but not his best game either.

-Wolfe and Ayers? Did they miss the plane?

-Not impressed with Mays. Again.

-Actually our defense really played well I thought. We held Turner down so well he needed a couple extra drinks on the drive home.

-We couldn't stop White, but no one has. Our defense played well enough for us to win this despite the early deficit. In fact if you take out the 13 pts off TO, and we do win this game. The defense held up despite really getting shafted by the offense in the 1st Q. Props to the effort.

-Thanks for reading!

Below is a running tally of how our guys are performing on this metric. Typically an offense needs to score 45+ to win and the defense needs to score 55+ to win. Last year we lost every game we didn't have a total (offense + defense) of 100 except the Jets game.
