    Because Denver really sucks and we can’t play them every week. Trevor Simiein is a complete stiff as Is worse than Matt Moore just like the thread I started weeks ago said he was :=).

    Never understood what the Broncos saw in Joseph last year that said he was ready to be a coach. Looking like he’ll be a one and done at this rate.

    Don't think it was last year's performance that got him that job. He was projected to be the next young prospective HC for a few years. Elway jumped on him a few years too early.

    For whatever reason, some HC candidates have (unwarranted) buzz

    Surprisingly we played one of the handful of teams that are actually worse than the Dolphins. Those teams do exist.

    People act like Denver is a first place team. The Broncos blow. Their offense is completely putrid and their defense had injuries to key players. Pretty easy figuring out why we won.

    Yeah I understand that with the problems at QB and other injuries the Dolphins certainly wouldn't be blowing many teams out and would struggle to win many games. However in 5 out of their 7 loses they were completely dominated and absolutely embarassed. Those 5 loses weren't even close. The other two loses came against bad teams. The one against the Raiders where the Dolphins were dominated for most of the game. The loss against a dreadful Bucs team was downright pathetic.

    So I would also like to know. Where was this play and effort during those games?

    Miami's defense just happened to go up against the one QB that's worse than Cutler and Moore! What are the odds? :D

    Other than a few plays I thought we played like crap on offense to be honest. We had like 9 punts, and 2 turnovers. We got the ball to start drives near midfield so many times it was almost like we played that game with a 50 yard field instead of 100, and yet it was punt after punt after punt.

    And Denver played Cincy and Oakland close. No, Denver isn't a world-beater, but this win wasn't the cake-walk some portray it.

    Lol figures the team the Dolphins blow out this year is coached by the guy who was the defensive coordinator here last year. So poetic, and so Dolphins.

    A number of AWFUL plays were when the OL blew an assignment. For example, one sack on Cutler. That's not the same as 'being beaten'

    Who is acting like Denver is a first place team?

    We played a horrible team. Their QB and offense sucks. They have now lost 8 games in a row and the defense was missing 3 starters and Miller got hurt too and still, we had to punt 9 TIMES..........lets not pretend like our team all of a sudden is fixed. We just played a worse team than hours that was short handed.

    Beat NE next Monday night and I'll come around.

    Ozzy rules!!

    Where's this game been?
    This is one of the only teams we've played without a decent TE.
    Denver is just as bad as Miami, same issues. They looked like Miami when we lose.

    If they are as bad as the fins shouldn't we have tied with them?

    If Miami plays the same way against New England, the Patriots probably win by at least 10 points.

    Not putting down the win. I've been waiting for that complete game where you feel pretty good about all phases. This is the closest the team has been to that this year. Some good things to build on, but a long way to go to be a competitive team.
