1st QtrT.SpkD.ButN.DigA.GarJ.CesC.ThoT.HarV.MarC.LiuS.PhiA.BarT.LaB

.

11st and 10run0.000.000.00The front 7 get immediately pounded. This Denver O-line is rough...

.

2nd and 3run0.500.000.00More denver dominance...

.

1st and 10run0.500.000.000.00Garay and Martin let McGahee right by them. Phillips was faked out

.

2nd and 2run0.000.00Liuget is powered out of the way, Phillips again faked out

.

1st and 10run0.000.000.50Phillips again going for Tebow, Liuget is crushed away, and LaBoy misses an opportunity for a TFL

.

2nd and 5run1.001.000.50McGahee gets confused with so much penetration here from the defense.

.

3rd and 5pass4quick pass incomplete, inaccurate, improbable

.

21st and 10run0.500.500.00Corey Liuget really wants some action: (Figure 1)

.

2nd and 3run0.000.00It's hard to grade the ILB's when there's such a mess around the running lane...

.

1st and 10pass0.00Flea flicker, Spikes had a chance at Tebow but failed.

.

2nd and 10run0.000.000.00This was a fail on so many levels. All the zeroes are guys that fell over each other, and Weddle had no help to cover the QB and the RB simultaneously

.

1st and 10run1.001.001.000.50Good gap control here.

.

2nd and 9run1.501.00Same play as 2 plays ago, but this time, no fails

.

3rd and 8pass1.000.000.000.004Thomas gets in Tebow's face and maybe threw him off a bit. Or Tebow's just not a very good passer.

.

3(2ndq)1st and 13run1.000.001.000.50Cesaire is bowled over, and Spikes is ready along with Thomas and LaBoy

.

2nd and 10pass1.000.00I'm giving LaBoy a zero here because he watched the play happen and failed. Liuget is behind Tebow. Simple solution: go for Tebow's face. (Figure 2)

.

3rd and 13run0.000.00I was scared Tebow would escape with this one... Barnes and Phillips chasing him around. Thanks for the save, Dante Hughes. *

.

41st and 10run1.000.500.00Garay is initally hit hard, but holds his ground enough to prevent significant yardage.

.

2nd and 7run0.500.50Again, denver's o-line is rough. They really push you back

.

3rd and 3passWhy wasn't a timeout called here, Norv? The defense wasn't ready. Jammer was covering 2 receivers, and Cason 3.

.

1st and 10run0.001.000.001.00Not noticed: Liuget killed Tebow's hopes of hitting the edge for a big gain. Butler is faked out.

.

2nd and 6run0.000.00Gregory had to come up for this stop, or McGahee gets the first

.

3rd and 3run1.000.501.001.00Phillips blitzing and Barnes straight for the middle made sure Tebow would get nowhere as long as Harris and Thomas stuffed the middle. They did. *

.

51st and 10run0.000.00Thomas misses the sack opportunity

.

2nd and 7passTommie Harris fumbles the fumble.

.

1st and 10passBoth Hughes and Weddle were faked the eff out. Decker, who I benched on my fantasy team, was left wide open for an easy TD. Oliver late in coverage

.

3rd Qtr

.

61st and 10run0.000.000.000.00McGahee just ran where there was a hole. Phillips totally missed him too...

.

2nd and 1run1.502.00Martin totally flops the RG and Butler shoots through for a stop. Great play.(Figure 3)

.

3rd and 2pass5quick drop pass that's dropped by Johnson. A faster ILB could've intercepted the pass (Spikes almost got a piece of it)

.

71st and 10run1.501.002.00Martin, for the second time, dominates his lineman and leaves McGahee nowhere to run. Spikes finishes it off. *

.

2nd and 16run2.00LaBoy forces Tebow to get rid of the ball on the dangerous option play. *

.

3rd and 17pass2.004Third fantastic play in a row. Phillips has his best play of the game and leaves an easy target for Jammer with his tipped pass. *

.

81st and 10run0.000.000.00Spikes misses, Harris opens the lane, Phillips misses, this was just poor discipline.

.

1st and 10run2.00Phillips thinks McGahee was the ballcarrier, Surprise. Tebow dropped by Butler for a loss.

.

2nd and 12run0.000.000.000.000.00Easy 7 yard pick up here. The defenders couldn't hold their gaps.

.

3rd and 5run0.000.000.500.500.00Barnes levels McGahee! Wait, he doesn't have the ball.... (Figure 4)

.

1st and 10pass1.001.000.500.004Garay breaks down the pocket and chases Tebow up the pocket into Martin and Spikes.

.

2nd and 5run1.500.501.00quick handoff and Diggs reads it well, crashing the line for a stop.

.

3rd and 5pass0.000.000.005seven and a half seconds to throw? Weddle just stood there waiting for a Tebow time decision.

.

1st and 10pass0.001.501.500.500.505Liuget looks like he could be a DE in a 4-3 (ahem, John) beating the tackle here and making Tebow run into Thomas.

.

2nd and 12run0.000.00Thomas and Cesaire aren't enough against a 4 man blocking line in front of them. Easy yardage

.

3rd and 6run1.00Great play by LaBoy and Weddle here.

.

9(4thq)1st and 10passquick pass and the secondary is out of position to tackle

.

1st and 10run0.000.000.000.00Martin is driven out of a hole, and everyone misses tackling Tebow. Everyone. (figure 5)

.

2nd and 2run1.000.501.00The left side does just enough to keep Tebow to 1 yard

.

3rd and 1run0.000.00Backbreaking 3rd down conversion. Garay is driven back and Barnes can't make the tackle for no gain.

.

1st and 10pass0.500.000.500.004Tebow escapes the pocket and Phillips can't get him for a sack.

.

2nd and 7run1.001.00Nice job stuffing the run here by Thomas and Harris

.

3rd and 16pass0.500.000.000.004Tebow gets 6 seconds to throw, and Oliver lets the pass bounce off his chest.

.

101st and 10run1.000.500.50This was awesome. Spikes hunts down McGahee and drops him

.

2nd and 10run2.000.500.500.500.00The middle is stuffed, Phillips again falls for the Tebow keeper, and Butler cleans it up

.

3rd and 11pass0.500.000.000.004This is what I was talking about as lousy gameplanning. 3 rush 1 contain/spy? Silly.

.

1st and 10run1.001.000.000.00Butler will be very good some day.

.

2nd and 9pass0.001.000.000.004This was just semi-indefensable.

.

1st and 10run0.500.500.500.50McGaheee: 20 carries for 72 yards. That's pretty good run D John.

.

2nd and 8pass1.006This one scared me. Halfass blitz and cover zero? It's what the jets did to lose last week.

.

3rd and 8pass0.500.000.000.500.504The only reason Spikes doesn't get a zero is because he jumped to defend a possible pass.

.

11(OT)1st and 10run0.000.000.000.00Na'il diggs messes up his read, Phillips just stood around waiting for someone to make a tackle instead of stepping into the field. "Rush to the ball".

.

1st and 10run0.500.000.50Still playing coverage. Not a bad thing, really. If you can't get a pass rush, play coverage.

.

2nd and 7run0.000.000.000.00Liuget gets run over. Spikes slams a blocker but it doesn't help too much.

.

3rd and 2run0.500.501.00Weddle did this one. Nice playcall. Barnes stuffs the middle well and helps force a punt

.

121st and 10run1.000.00Phillips faked out again. AGAIN. Diggs chases Tebow right to Weddle for the stop (figure 6)

.

2nd and 11pass0.500.000.000.0046 seconds of pocket time.... pathetic. At least coverage was good.

.

3rd and 11pass6nice blitz call. Tebow hurries a throw that's overturned.

.

131st and 10pass0.000.500.000.500.005deep pass to Johnson overthrown.

.

2nd and 10run0.00Phillips faked out again. This one crucial because it's a free first down with open field left

.

1st and 10run1.001.00Harris collapses the middle so Tebow keeps it, and Diggs makes a great stop

.

2nd and 6run0.000.001.000.00A shot of Norv on the sideline with his stomach churning before McGahee's run. Game.
