DenverBroncos-Logo 3Denver, Colo. — The Denver Broncos opened up their regular season today at Sports Authority Field with a very un-Bronco type game. If this is what Gary Kubiak is going to produce for the rest of the season, you can count me out.
Obviously the man does not understand offense. Oh yeah, he had a tremendous defense, and defense won the game. With one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL there was not one touchdown made by the offense, and Peyton Manning was sacked four times.
The new running game that was supposed to be their new look was wow — zip.
Oh yeah, the Broncos beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-13 — what a bore and only by the grace of a last second interception by Darian Stewart, who kept the Ravens from snatching the game away from the Broncos at the goal line.
Kubiak obviously likes long, slow, time consuming drives, and field goals obviously are his bread and butter. Last year Peyton Manning threw seven touchdown passes against the Ravens. This year he didn’t get to throw a single one.
Let’s see, the Broncos’s Brandon McManus kicked four field goals, including one for 57 yards s and one for 56, and Aquib Talib ran a interception back to stop a Baltimore touchdown.

The Bronco defense pinned back the Raven’s ears and held them down to 173 yards of total offense, and the Raven defense got their licks in — BUT if it’s so boring your audience turns you off and they boo you from you own stands, somebody is missing the point.
The Broncos will go to Arrowhead Stadium next Thursday and play the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs have a strong defense this year and are also 1-0. The Chiefs defeated the Texans 27-20 at Houston today. Andy Reid has some sense; he’s going to come after the Broncos with everything he’s got, including Alex Smith. Last year the Broncos defeated the Chiefs 24-17 at Denver.
