I am happy we won. I'll always be happy to see the Broncos win. Bummed because this is a game that I could have went to in a normal timeline since I live 40 min from Metlife.
Overall, some good some bad, as you'd expect. I thought Rypien looked pretty good considering he's had likely zero reps/time and had a short week travelling east. Some bad throws, but that's going to happen. Also thought he made some good throws. Would like to see him continue to be QB, but I am guessing Bortles will start vs NE.
Tim Patrick had a good game- he's definitely a more valuable WR than I think he gets credit for (from myself included). Pretty reliable depth guy to have.
The run defense looked very good, granted it was the corpse of Frank Gore and the Jets, but you gotta win the battles on the field, and we did.
Great to see Chubb look like himself again, and hell of a game for Josey Jewell. I thought he played phenomenal last night.
Bausby needs to play going forward. He's better on the boundary, Callahan can move inside, and Ojemudia can stay on the other side. I like Bassey, but he's going to get exposed by better teams if he got that exposed last night.
McManus legged out some monster kicks in the rain. Enjoyed seeing that after the big contract.
Not sure why Vic didn't kneel the ball at the end of the game rather than let Rypien get murdered out there. That was fairly irresponsible and illogical. On the flipside, Gregg Willams is a POS and I am not shocked they had, what, 7 personal foul calls last night? Just gross, but unsurprising.
Finally, I will eat my well-deserved crow here. Adam Gase is an atrocity. I was a big Gase fan when he was our OC under Manning and (wrongly) felt that he could be a good NFL HC if given the chance, including here in Denver. He clearly is and has not been up to that task- the Jets awful GM situation aside. I expect Gase loses his job shortly, probably popping up as someone's QB coach for a few years to rebuild his credibility. I do not think he'll ever be a HC again.
Good to get off the mark- especially because I still do not expect us to have a great deal of success against better/healthier teams. I will give Vic and the coaching staff a lot of credit though- this team continues to fight hard and play hard on a weekly basis and as a fan I appreciate that.
