    If we have to go to Denver, at least we're going there off a long week and a win. For us to have any chance we have to get constant pressure on manning with our front 4.

    Manning really struggled against the 0-9 Raiders (My 2nd favorite team) throwing 2nd interceptions in the 1st half

    Sure hope so. I really believe we match up well against them. Shut down the big / blown plays and play our game at our pace.

    Jordan is still a tad late off the snap. Maybe he is playing slow simply because he is processing his responsibilities, but it is noticeable.

    I hope he begins to play faster. I do like the little I have seen from him.

    Btw, I have not heard McCain's name much. Anyone know what is going on with him? Is his injury still lingering?

    I don't know, the Dolphins can't make the same mistakes on offense. Manning will make them pay everytime. This is certainly the best Dolphins defense Manning has faced since the JT/Thomas days.

    But I promise I won't get mad if they lose... (I said that before the Packers and Lions games...before they led with a minute left and failed to stop them on D or burn the clock on offense...) Would love to shock everyone though!

    Aside from this upstart Manning the Bronco's are freaking loaded talent wise on both sides of the ball. Going to be a huge challenge but I know the boys will go in there looking for a win, not just a good showing. Our boys play hard all game long.

    Hopefully it is a cold afternoon; Manning has a losing record in games under 40 degrees I believe.

    Don't forget this though: The Broncos have a Top 5 defense, #1 rush defense. Its not all Manning. Won't be easy for the offense. Need a perfect game.

    If the Dolphins play against the Broncos the same as they did against Green Bay and Detroit, teams ranked in the top 10 of NFL power rankings, we have a good chance to win. Both of those loses came in the final minutes of the game.

    If the defensive front 4 can get consistent pressure on Manning, I dont see Denver racking up a ton of points but on the flip side of that coin, if the offense cant get the ball into the endzone and we settle for field goals, we're not going to fair very well.

    I say we're going to have to score AT LEAST 30 to have a chance to win

    There is no logical reason to believe we will win this game...but OTOH, this is just the sort of game we sneak in and win once a season or so, historically. I don't know why, but I have a gut feeling we might pull this one out.

    As bad as the last decade has been for us, imagine if we still had to play Manning twice a year along with Brady. That would've been way worse. Too bad we never put together a good enough team to take advantage of the realignment and allowed the Pats to be the dominant AFCE team.

    The only way we will win this game is to pressure Manning and get him out of his comfort zone. Otherwise he might pick us apart. He has too many weapons.

    The Bronks get to tune up against the Raiders and Rams before hosting the Fins. At least they get the Mini-Bye going into that game.

    Manning looked bad against the Patriots defence. I think any objective viewer would see the the Dolphins D as better than the Patriots.

    The key to this game will be how RT plays at altitude, in the cold against perhaps a suspect Broncos Defence.

    Denver's OLine is a mess. They brought in Incognito this week to work out, so they are obviously desperate. They are switching and plugging in pieces everywhere. The front 4 should be able to get pressure. Manning is like Brady, if you hit him enough he turtles. Game over. If you let him sit back there though he will rip you apart. Grimes will be on Demarius Thomas, I would expect to see a lot of Dion Jordan on Julius Thomas, Welker hasn't been nearly as effective this year as he has in the past, Sanders worries me though. He is on a hot streak right now and he has the speed to blow up the secondary.

    The Broncos D is legit. That is what worries me.

    The O-line sounds a lot like the Phins at this point.

    You don't think Manning saw how 7-11 (Hogan) tore up the Phins in the first half. They have this guy named Wes Welker who, last time I checked, plays well against the Phins.

    I have seen a few of the games Welker has been back, and he seems to be a shell of his former self. He obviously still understands the soft areas of a defense, but I truly believe he is one hit away from retiring.

    On the other hand, they do have some damn fine wideouts (and a TE who leads the league in scores), and I hope Finnegan comes back. Manning (like many other QBs) responds not-so-well to pressure. Apply it, and Miami has a chance. One thing about Manning is he is highly unlikely to take the big hits. He is one of the smartest at knowing when to fold them.

    This will be a fun game to watch. Not sure Miami wins on the road against a likely Super Bowl contender, but this is the NFL.

    I am actually dreading this game more than any other match-up in recent years. It's not because I'm afraid that we're going to lose, but it's that Wake, Odrick and company are going to knock Manning right out of football. If you watch just the D line for the past 10 games, there might be 25 passing plays where the opposing QB was still upright. It may sound dumb but I'm worried that they're going to really hurt the old fella.

    On a similar note, Manning's numbers go way down when he's pressured so I'm not too worried about competing. I think we will be in position to steal this one away at the end.

    Manning is no fool, he'll have the ball out in 2.0 if need be. Our DBs have to take away the short stuff and hope Manning is off on the deep.

    The quarterback must go down, and he must go down hard.

    So what if the old fella gets hurt? I have never been a big fan of the Manning clan. He is financially more than set for life. Hard to feel sorry for him even if he did get hurt. He'd have more free time to be a shill for those crappy Papa John's Pizzas.

    first of all, the broncos will have to play another game first, a tough one at St. Louis, maybe not tough to win, but it will be on artificial turf and lets see if they get out of this game without any setbacks injury wise

    Hmmm, your idea of not conceding a lot of points differs to mine if we'll need to score 30+!

    Like I have said for quite awhile now, although I really respect Peyton and he has been a real good one if we get constant pressure on him with several sacks and alot of hits he will eventually through a pick 6 or 2 to our Defense..take the run away, get the pressure, sacks, and hits on him and sit on the quick outs that he will try and go to. I have us winning this game as I have called it all year. We do have to score 6 on all of our RZ opportunities as we need to play our best game of the year which I think we can and Will.

    LET'S GO FINS ! ! !

    Well away from here
    The issue that truly matters is how much of that can be attributed (#1 rush defense) to the fact that most times the Broncos are ahead by a wide margin in their games leading to the other team predominantly abandoning the run in favor of the pass. Denver's defense is built to play with a lead, not to slug it out with someone.

    Also, their pass defense is ranked 19th, giving up over 240 yards a game, and 22.1 points per game. And, I don't know how much it will affect them but they just but LB Nate Irving on IR. He had 46 tackles thus far this season.
