Terrible missed block by Gates leads to the end of the drive, and close to a QB kill.

The Broncos defensive line has jumped around more than once quite a bit prior to the snap. I guess they're trying to find gaps to shoot? Or get a profitable 1-on-1 when rushing the passer?

ATT YDS TD LG
20 90 2 8

4.5 yards per carry without a single one longer than 8?

With 2 minutes left, 2nd and goal at the 1, do you kneel twice? Denver has no timeouts. You'll have 4th and goal at the 3 with 30 seconds left. If you don't convert, they still have to go 60+ yards in 25 seconds with no timeouts. If you score now, they have 2 minutes to drive and get 2.

Love the way that SD has handled the last couple minutes here. Rivers with the half QB sneak on 2nd down, so he wouldn't get the TD but also wouldnt lose yardage. And then kicking off from the DEN 40 after two penalties, kicking it high and short to pin Denver inside the 5. Love it, smart football

Question: after the two 15-yard penalties after the LDT touchdown, San Diego kicks off from the Denver 40. If SD kicks it off out of bounds, doesn't Denver get it at their own 10? (30 yards back from where they usually get it at the 40?)

I have tried not to be too exciteable about the Plummer situation all year, but I think it's time for him to go--regardless of whether Denver's still in the race.

At this point, what is he providing that Cutler can't do. Cutler can make just as many bad decisions and/or turnovers. I dare say he might even need less. The Broncos have already throttled back their play book enough that their not going to lose any versatility either.

Let's start the future today. Time for Jay Cutler.

#81 - Because he took a swing at Nalen - that was the correct call. I agree that he was provoked by a dirty play by Nalen, but the smart response would have been to roll around on the ground clutching your knee, hoping the refs eject the other guy.

Still, I hope the NFL takes a look at Nalen's hit and fines him for it.

That was really stupid of Olshansky, but I can kind of understand why he did it. He has already been injured a couple of times this season, he does not want to miss any more games, the Charger D-line is already missing Castillo, and the Denver offense is famous for trying to injure defensemen by hitting them low.

So I can totally see why Igor got pissed off when the center went for his knees on an obvious spike play. But he should still try to keep his cool, especially when he is winning.

The only thing that would have made this game better is if it would have happened last season and we would have had Mike Patrick, Joe Theisman and Paul Maguire announce it for us.

Paul Maguire: RIGHT HERE! I'M GOING TO TELL YOU, RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. LOOK AT WHAT TOM NALEN DOES. RIGHT HERE. WATCH HIS FEET. BAM.

Joe Theisman: Now that right there is just a disgusting play by Tom Nalen, and an equally disgusting play from Igor Olshansky to try and retaliate.

Mike Patrick: And now we've got sixty-four THOUSAND screaming fans not knowing WHAT is going ON.

Paul Maguire: I'LL TELL YOU WHATS GOING ON, WATCH THIS. HE JUST PICKS UP THE BALL AND....RIGHT THERE. THATS A PENALTY.

Joe Theisman: As far as i'm concerned Drayton Florence should be thrown out of this game for that. Thats just uncalled for.

Paul MAguire: BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA IF YOU DON'T THINK THAT LADANIAN TOMLINSON IS A GREAT RUNNING BACK THAN YOU'RE NUTS. IT'S THAT SIMPLE.

Joe Theisman: He's not even on the field right now Paul.

Paul Maguire: Joseph.

Mike Patrick: WHAT A PLAY BY JAKE PLUMMER!

Joe Theisman: Look at the poise right here by Jake Plummer.

MIke Patrick: Lets check in with Suzy Kolber on the sidelines to try and make some sense of whats going on here.

Suzy Kolber: When you think of the Denver Broncos offensive line you probably think of 5 quiet guys that don't talk to the media. But you also probably think of that controversial cut blocking technique that has left opposing players and coachings up in arms about their style of play. It's a tough, gritty style of play, but someones got to do it. Mike, back to you in the booth.

Mike Patrick: THank you Suzy.

Paul Maguire: BWAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA THIS IS NUTS!

More TDs than over half the teams in the league? I know a lot of those were gimmes, but tonight was against a Denver D that was ranked pretty high in red zone D.

LT was the reason I started watching the Chargers here in SD when they sucked, and I'm feeling pretty good right now being able to watch this future HoFer perform in this city.

Kicking OB is a good idea on that kickoff, what SD did worked out even better, and it gave them a chance to possibly end the game by recovering the kick. Kicking OB is probably a safer call

yeah, they should have kicked off out of bounds. good catch there--i didn't think of it, since i just assumed that the rule was the other team gets it at their 40. but the rulebook says they get it 30 yards from the spot of the kickoff, which would have been their 10.

on the other hand, i think madden & michaels were wrong to blast the denver KR for covering up the ball. if he lets it bounce, it's a live ball and if it goes up into the air, san diego might well end up with it since their coverage team hasn't had very far to run. he made the right play--it was just a beautifully placed kickoff by kaeding.

#91: totally understandable for Olshansky to be pissed about Nalen, but he's got to keep himself under control in that situation.

And Nalen is a kneehunting urethra of a lineman, but the NFL has had plenty of chances to do something about the blocking strategy and they haven't.

#93: awesome.

#99. agreed on the live ball thing. I was thinking the same thing. Who knows wich way that ball bounces. It was a smart kickoff and IMO the KR had no choice but to field it any way he could to make sure his team at least had posession of the ball.

It would've been a touchback if a player with a functioning brain was back to field it.
There's no choice but to kick it as high as you can there. That or onside it.

The score was 35-27 with 1:14 left, with San Diego just scoring to take the lead and Ian Gold AND Darrant Williams both picked up unsportsmanlike penalties. I didn't watch until the kickoff, but it seemed like one of them did something to Gerald McNeil during the Extra Point. Denver did not have any Timeouts left as they were trying to keep time on the clock before the inevitable LDT score.

San Diego kicked off from the Denver 40, and Kaeding pooched it high at the goal line. Cecil Sapp was deep in the end zone and falls forward fielding the kick just in the goal line, and falls down at the Denver 2. After 2 incompletes (one with heavy pressure)and a 5 yard pass on 2nd down Denver has 4th and 6. On these 4 downs I think I noticed the SD interier pass rusher (most likely Olshanksy) going pretty high on Nalan, probably hands around the neck.... but they were pretty chippy even before the next play.

On the 4th down play, Plummer gets the ball to Walker for a 20+ yard gain out to the Denver 35. The clock is ticking down to ~ 35 seconds and Denver spikes the ball. After the whistle Igor Olshansky takes two swings at Tom Nalan in the head and ends up ejected. I think one was kind've a back-arm and the other was a punch to the helmet. On replay we see that Nalen went low on Olshansky after the whistle... typical Denver lineman move. Others on the IRC chat thought that he had just fallen down but his helmet definately was heading towards the knee of Olshanksy.

Denver gets a new set of downs around mid-field and Plummer hits Rod Smith in the middle of the field. While Denver the ball is being spotted Drayton Florence knocks it away from the official, stopping the clock.

On the 2nd down play from ~SD 30, Shaun Phillips gets front-side pressure on Plummer who tries to scramble away. Plummer gets hit and fumbles, the ball bounces towards the sideline, as both teams try to recover. I think someone nearly recovers for SD but it gets hit even further up-field and eventually Stephen Alexander recovers the ball with ~ 12 seconds left. He dove on the ball instead of just knocking it out of bounds.

Because the fumble was recovered inbounds the clock is ticking, 12-11-10... Denver lines up in shotgun formation and gets the snap off 1 second after 0. Bill Leavy comes up and tells everyone the game is over as San Diego players celebrate.

He could see it was going into the endzone. If he hadn't touched it, it would've been a touchback. His diving on it brought it out of the endzone. If the kick was to the 5 or whatever, fine. But it was going in the endzone anyway.

Or, he could've just dove on it in the endzone, instead of that boneheaded play. He cost his team field position.

LaDanian Tomlinson, Steve Smith, Larry Johnson and Julius Peppers

If LT can do 50% of what he has done over the last 2 weeks, he is a lock for season ending MVP

Extrapolating Drew Brees numbers, he would have the following nos: 4982 yds, 27 TDs and 16 INTs

89 I strongly disagree. I dislike faking injuries very much. Punching him in the head was the correct response. I would love to see the Denver line survive in the NHL :)

Seriously, the game needs less dishonesty not more. Personally I think teams hould sign guys off the practice squad to try and take out the Denver O-line if its going to act like this, just send them in for a play and have them all jump up and down on Nalens face or something. 5 Practice squad guys ejected, Nalen popssibly learns a lesson.

I think that’s what got the delay call (delayed the officials from being able to spot the ball).

I could have sworn it was the Denver player who accidentally kicked it away as he was getting up, but I could be wrong.

RE:119
Even if the ball goes into the end zone, it would be live until either a Bronco covers it or it goes out of bounds. If he lets it bounce and it gets away from him, with San Diego kicking off from the 40 there is an excellent chance of a Chargers recovery.

Well, the look on Shanahan's face should tell us that he thought it was a terrible play by his guy. The Chargers have got to be 20 yards away... you have to let it bounce at least once more. Besides, you've got to take some chances in that situation, if you want to win.

The similarities of the Giants offense and the Chargers offense right now, outside of the QBs, is uncanny: an elite RB, a tough pass-catching TE, and underrated receivers. The main difference? Manning vs. Rivers.

And now the announcers are saying it wasn't the wrong move?

You know what bugs me (as a Giant fan)...is these three clowns telling us how the Giants taking Eli #1 was the right move, franchise QB, you can't look in heinsight, all that stuff...

That's fine. Most Giants fans don't complain about choosing Eli over Phillip Rivers...IT WAS THE FACT THAT WE DEALT AWAY TWO MORE PICKS.

The Chargers had no leverage since Eli wouldn't play there...we could have played hardball...and Rivers would have been a fine fall back if they said no deal...it's not choosing Eli over Rivers...if we had the #1 pick, sure, take Eli.

It's the trading of a 1st round pick the year after (wasn't that the Merriman pick too?), and a 3rd round pick as well...that's the problem, and that's where the criticism comes from.

I don't think these clowns even know that we traded Rivers, AFTER DRAFTING HIM...heck, the Chargers had already made the pick...

I'm not fine with giving up a 1st and a 3rd rounder, in addition to Rivers...that was just retarded...Eli didn't want to play for San Diego; the offer to the Chargers should have been Rivers + a 5th round pick for Eli, and if you say no, oh well, we'll take Rivers...maybe increase to a 4th rounder if we feel generous.

Sensabaugh & the Jags' D is looking OK.

Interestingly, the Jags promoted a safety off their practice squad this week to fill a vacant roster spot. Jamaal Fudge looked really good in the preseason, definitely a hard hitter like DD. Not sure how much time he'll see, but I believe the undrafted rookie free agent Fudge would be the #2 on the depth chart if Darius misses a lot of time.

Joey, Clint Ingram is not playing MLB. He's playing OLB. And since the Jags don't have set sides for the OLBs, I doubt he was on the wrong side. You should have known that. How would the MLB be on the wrong side?? How would that sentene have made sense?

Re: Tiki vs. LT

The past few years, with Tiki's resurgence, have shown the two to be very comparable, even in their strengths. LT is a better between the tackles runner and gets goal-line carries, while Tiki is a somewhat better receiver, but both of them have great all-around ability and production as evidenced by their DPAR.

Of course, Tiki is retiring at the end of this year, and while at his best he's about LT's equal, obviously LT's future and overall performance will be superior in the final accounting.

But my comparison was for the purposes of this season, or the past couple of seasons. The Chargers offense and the Giants offense are rather comparable, including Tiki and LT. Their past couple of seasons are nearly interchangeable IMHO.

If you took all of the Giants' offensive yards in the first half and gave them the ball at their 20-yard line, they would not be in the endzone. The Taylor fumble wasn't huge--it keeps the Giants in the game but the Giants are not doing anything at all on offense.

I think if a QB drops back and then runs for his life before fumbling away a ball that gets run back for a TD, and he had absolutely no chance to even think about throwing at a receiver before a very last second attempt to draw an intentional grounding penalty, then nothing that happened in the secondary should matter, penalty-wise, because it had no impact on that play.

Re 234:

No, but that wasn't the point. Tiki and LT were similarly productive the last couple of years. My point was to show that outside the QBs, the NYG and SD offenses were comparable, not identical, but bearing some of the same strengths, including very elite RBs. It wasn't meant to elevate one RB over the other, but to propose that all things being roughly equal, what makes the SD offense superior to the Giants' offense has been mostly Rivers' production over Manning's.

#268. Ditto. I am watching the local feed in NY. I haven't had ESPN for a few years, and I do not miss it one bit. Just think, people actually pay money for ESPN.

re: 267
Yeah, I noticed a similar play in the NE/IND game when Freeney could have tackled Brady but he wasn't sure if he had the ball, so he nudged him and Brady then ran away from him and threw a completion.

If this were the NBA, Burress would have been T'ed up for "showing up the refs."

Whats lost in the discussion of that play is Burress never should have had to bobble it.

Really, with where that throw was he should have been able to catch that in stride and walk into the endzone.

Right?

Problem was, Giants should have done a quick QB sneak after that play, not try to set up a real play, they would have gotten away with a HUGE gain had they just done that. But at least I know Jay-Z is a Dallas fan. Kill me.....

267-
Not as clear on this play. Maybe someone who thought off nailing him while he was in the grasp slowed down. But I know what you mean. There where at least three better examples of this thinking yesterday, particularly on Pitt's. last drive. Time for the rules commitee to look at 'in the grasp' if they're going to be calling so many ticky-tack roughing penalties.

New Vegas bet: Who's next in The MNF Booth? Next week in Seattle will be...Jack Black, because his new movie will be out and it makes as much sense as Christian Slater.

You'd think.

But then, you'd think that when you have 150 yards in 3 quarters of play, you'd run the ball from 5 yards out of the endzone. Especially when everybody KNOWS your receivers cannot catch the ball!

Wow. THAT is what Matt Jones was drafted to do!

Now. POUND THE DAMN FOOTBALL INTO THE DAMN ENDZONE!

Seriously, if the Jags out-cute themselves out of a touchdown, fire Carl Smith.

I don't know. If I played for the Jaguars or was a Jaguars fan, I might be just a little honked off that Bobby Mccray(?) gets up after a sack and points to his name like that.

13 runs for the Giants? Although he's no LT, they do have a pretty damn good RB back there.

Barber's been hurt the last couple of weeks, but I don't know who number 27 on this roster is. Of course, since My qb has been sucking, and my new left tackle couldn't block a blade of grass without Tiki Barber helping chip on every pass play( Tiki also being the only safety valve for a qb who has a very bad game). So i'm just going to have him throw the ball 3000 times.

#295. Better hope any new staff keeps Plaxico around. :-) I guess if the "disciplinarian" Tom Coughlin let's Plax get away with his tendency to loaf several times a game, then a "regular" coach will too. Gee, I wonder why Coughlin *does* let Plaxico get away with what he gets away with. :-)
