Broncos-Lions one-liners

The Lions scored on all four Matthew Stafford drives in a 25-20 over Denver.  (And they could have scored more if two TD tries weren’t dropped.)

Matthew Stafford called WR Calvin Johnson’s 20-yard score a “special catch.”

There was a dramatic drop-off for the second straight week when the Lions’ backups entered the game.

The Lions are coming up with ways for rookie DT Ndamukong Suh to avoid double teams.

Detroit’s pass rush can use some work.

Lions FB Jerome Felton could wind up touching the ball more this year.

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels was impressed with Kyle Orton’s ability to improvise.  “He was running a lot in the first quarter, which is obviously not his forte and it’s not what we’re looking for either.  But I thought he did a decent job of really maneuvering in the pocket, out of the pocket.  He kept some plays alive that let us keep some drives going.”

After a slow start, Orton’s two-minute drill was a thing of beauty.

Orton commented on WR Jabar Gaffney, who led all receivers with 6 catches for 98 yards: “I think he’s underrated in his playmaking skills. He made a lot of really nice catches for us in tight coverage but he’s certainly one of our most dependable players on offense.”

Broncos LB Robert Ayers finally has a sack!  (Even if it was in the preseason.)

The Denver Post thinks there may be Tim Tebow fans rooting against Orton.

The Broncos are using free agent pickup CB Nate Jones in a variety of roles.

    Say what?
    How could they have scored “more” than ‘all four’ times?

    more points rex, not more scores.
    and as far as orton’s two minute drill goes, the lions were playing their 2nd team for that drive.

    More points, not more times. They only scored 16 on those 4 scoring possessions.

    Rex, do some math. They were scoring 3 points most of the time, not 7 points.

    Let’s see RexR#1…
    The quote above as you note is “And they could have scored more if two TD tries weren’t dropped”
    You go on to ask, “How could they have scored ‘more’ than all four’ times?”
    Let me try and illustrate for you.
    If the Lions scored on ‘all four’ possessions that Matthew Stafford led, and they resulted in 1 TD, and 3 FGs, that might equal 16 points (including 1 PAT).
    If, however, those four possessions resulted in 4 TDs and 4 PATs, that would equate to 28 points.
    This equals 12 MORE points than in the original scenario by substituting FGs with TDs.
    Kapeesh?

    looks like another year of Orton outperforming Cutler is in the making, and this year they’ll both have to throw to no name receiving corps

    how about showing Jarvis Moss a little love? dude looked unblockable in the 3rd quarter

    I like how almost every comment on here is directed at Rex

    The Bronco’s looked really bad. Orton started getting it together when subs started playing. Orton won’t lose for you, but he’ll NEVER go out and win one for you.
    The Lions have put together a very good team.
    Stafford looked great, D looked good, OLine was excellent.

    anybody else see Sue run over that fat guy wearin #74. Awesome. he’s gonna be a beast.
    Lions def is a hot mess on the edges and the secondary. Only hope is their pass rush. Against the run their not too bad.

    This site gets better by the day.
    The Broncos only sat the following players:
    Champ Bailey (All Pro)
    Demarious Thomas
    Ryan Clady (All Pro)
    Knowshon Moreno
    Buckhalter
    Lendale White
    So, if you are going to pretend to be a unbiased site, do yourself a favor and mention some basic facts about who played, and who didn’t.
    Bank on the Broncos to be THE surprise team of the year.
    Bring the hate. I know it is simple jealousy from all the Super Bowl appearances and AFC domination over the years.
    East Coasters suck nuts.

    The donkeys will be surprisingly….bad. That team is weak in the trenches, not good in the NFL.
