That Hole Looks Big Enough
Been a while since I rapped at y'all. Broncos continue their futility against the Ravens. Why do we seem to play them on the road ever year? Why can't we every beat them (and no, not even when Shanny was coach)? Why does their middle field emblem cover the entire field? Why must our rushing offense and defense suck so bad? Why do we have zillions of penalties and they seemingly open up huge holes and give Flaco all day to throw without a holding penalty?
Orton continues to compile numbers and look good, but without a running game to speak of, it makes it mighty tough to sustain drives. Especially with all of the ill-timed penalties. I guess realistically speaking, winning one of these last two road games is an acceptable road swing. Would be nice to see some semblance of a running game taking shape though. The schedule will ease somewhat in the coming weeks, and winning against the Jets and Raiders at home seems doable and probably kind of necessary to get this season heading in the right direction.
