Denver Broncos News: Horse Tracks - 10/25/10


**Let me make something clear...speak your mind, state your opinion, but leave out the divisive comments.  Personally, I don't care if you think MHR is one-sided.  Funny thing is, there are plenty of Broncos critics on the site.  That means your goal by saying things like that is to create trouble.  If that is your goal, you won't be here long.  There are other Broncos sites, find them. -John**

Raiders blast Broncos 59-14; fans express their displeasure - The Denver Post
On the bright side for Josh McDaniels, Jay Cutler threw four interceptions. If only McDaniels had more going for him than another man's failure.

Paige: Masquerading as a rabid Raider rooter - The Denver Post
Assuming a scurrilous undercover role — clad in a black Oakland jersey and a pseudo-leather helmet, with face painted black on one side, silver on the other — The TermiRaider (the spy name I chose) roamed the stadium parking lots before the game and Darth-invaded tailgate parties and affronted Broncos fanatics.

Kiszla: McDaniels' last salvation — Tebow - The Denver Post
Kyle Orton is done as the Broncos' quarterback. He just doesn't know it yet. So what's the hang-up getting the Tim Tebow era started? Coach Josh McDaniels doesn't have the guts to tell his players their NFL season is dead.

Krieger: Josh losing fans; is he losing team too? - The Denver Post
I apologize for comparing Raiders owner Al Davis to Grandpa Munster. After Sunday's slaughter at Invesco Field, it's clear the Raiders' owner has a lot more on the ball than Broncos owner Pat Bowlen.

Orton off mark, now off record pace for yardage - The Denver Post
Forget chasing Dan Marino. Kyle Orton needs to go after the old Kyle Orton again.

Broncos' McDaniels holds Tebow back with game out of hand - The Denver Post
Dejected, angry, maybe even humiliated, there was only one reason for 15,000 or so Broncos fans to stick around for the fourth quarter Sunday.

Raiders set records in routing Broncos - The Denver Post
Tight end Zach Miller was the ringleader of the rout. In hindsight, he said his 43-yard touchdown reception that capped Oakland's game-opening 80-yard drive on Sunday was so easy, he envisioned a pedestrian victory long before the Raiders sprinted out to a 38-0 lead.

Analysis: Pass-happy Broncos bound to fail - The Denver Post
A lot of people are playing "remember when" with the Broncos these days.

Bronco Talk: Words from the locker room after the Raiders' 59-14 win - The Denver Post
Here's what the Broncos and Raiders were saying Sunday evening in the wake of one of the worst losses in Broncos history:

NFL Game Center: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos - 2010 Week 7
Behind Darren McFadden's four touchdowns, the Oakland Raiders scored the most points in their 50-year history Sunday with a 59-14 thrashing of the demoralized Denver Broncos.

NFL Game Center: New England Patriots at San Diego Chargers - 2010 Week 7
The San Diego Chargers blundered right down to the bitter end against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

NFL Game Center: Washington Redskins at Chicago Bears - 2010 Week 7
DeAngelo Hall looked like he was playing catch with Jay Cutler. When the Bears quarterback threw the ball, he was there to intercept it -- four times.

NFL Game Center: Cleveland Browns at New Orleans Saints - 2010 Week 7
David Bowens looks even older than he is, with specks of gray in his hair and beard.

NFL Game Center: Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs - 2010 Week 7
Derrick Johnson returned an interception for a score, and Matt Cassel threw two touchdown passes to Dwayne Bowe, leading the Chiefs to a 42-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Week 7 winners and losers | National Football Post
1. Green Bay: Have to talk about the Packers’ win at Lambeau over Brett Favre and the Vikings. Coming off two straight OT losses, and the injuries, this was the type of game you have to win against a divisional opponent at home. Both Favre and Aaron Rodgers were carless with the football, but what matters in these types of games is the fourth quarter. Who can make the plays in the critical situations? That was Green Bay on both sides of the ball. Wasn't a perfect ball game, but the win is all that matters.

Dez Bryant gets green light for Monday night | National Football Post
Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant had full participation in practice today for the first time in two weeks, and has been listed as probable for Monday night’s game against the New York Giants in Arlington, Texas.

Kolb out, Vick in for Week 9 | National Football Post
Kevin Kolb’s second stint as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles has come to an end.

Tough call was not reason Dolphins lost - AFC East Blog - ESPN
The Miami Dolphins and their fans have every right to be upset over the late call that went against them Sunday afternoon.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers - Recap - October 24, 2010 - ESPN
It looked like one of Brett Favre's old comebacks with the Green Bay Packers, and now he'd done it to them. At Lambeau Field, too.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Atlanta Falcons - Recap - October 24, 2010 - ESPN
Roddy White had one of the best games of his career, outshining Cincinnati's loquacious receiving duo all by himself to lead the Atlanta Falcons to a wild 39-32 victory over the Bengals on Sunday.

Chargers left to wonder when it will change - AFC West Blog - ESPN
Just because the San Diego Chargers have been here before, it doesn’t mean they know the escape route or they are positive the usual late-season revival is in the works.

Saints may soon have to sound the alarm - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
Seven games into the 2010 season, and the 4-3 New Orleans Saints have slipped to third place in the surprisingly competitive NFC South. They’re below the Buccaneers, of all teams. And now, the Saints have to prepare to face the Steelers – arguably the best team in the NFL – next week. So a .500 record through the first half of the season is not out of the question.

Odds were in Patriots' favor against Chargers - NFL - Yahoo! Sports
The Smartest Man in the World had a decision to make, and obviously, it was going to be the correct one.
