broncos running up the score (1 Viewer)

They ran a WR screen, boo-hoo. Be glad Peyton didn't try to break the NFL Touchdown record.
OP is a Pats fan trying to cast the "Run it up" shtick to the Broncos who clearly tried to run out the clock prior to being forced to throw to ensure the game ended.

 
This was likely a joke topic, but I think they would be careful not to run up the score. When the Ravens showed a little life they went back to throwing. But if it was 42-17, I don't think you'd see them trying to score again.

I'm not sure why some folks can't see the detriment in running up the score. You gain nothing by it, and it would be silly against the Ravens. Last year Baltimore won the Super Bowl. The Broncos couldn't even match their Tebow-led playoff win total. This year they got revenge, looked great...and get to start 1-0. Still a long season. Running up the score would be pointless.

I recall the year the Patriots were running up the score. They didn't win the Super Bowl that year...and haven't won it since. What does running it up accomplish again?

 
Lets all keep in mind the key learning from last night...with one more playoff loss manning becomes the biggest loser in NFL history.

Oh, and running up the score is fun.

:goodposting: Hopefully Belichick comes to his senses soon and apologizes for running it up that season so they have a chance to win a Super Bowl again.

 
I don't care what team it is, my favorite Eagles, or the Broncos or Patriots or whomever, running up the score is always a good thing. Last I checked, one of the NFL playoff tiebreakers is total points. I don't want my team missing out on the playoffs due to a total points difference they could have won if they had run up the score on somebody instead of playing nice and not humiliating them.

 
At least the Broncos were not trying to cheat, oh wait they did try, back when Josh McDaniel's was calling the shots...........

This guy gets it. Know the rules of the game and proceed from there.

 
If my team has that kind of lead, I want the starters out of there at some point. Not worth risking injury imo

 
I'd rather my team win in a blowout fashion, then me squeezing cheeks in the 4th cause were up 2 with 2 minutes to go.

and no reason to run up the score??

UM HELLLO FANTASY POINTS!!!!

DT got 15 points on that last screen pass. thats what Im talking about JACK

 
Broncos were totally safe huh?

You mean like when the Ravens scored 2 touchdowns and won in overtime in 5 minutes during the playoffs last year?

 
Do you think the pollards of the league will be trying to take his legs out for this?

Jesus Christ. Even in the few blissful moments they're not in the spotlight, Patrioits fans find a way to make everything about them and be incredibly annoying.

 
Surprised no one has brought up the fact that the Broncos were extremely motivated beyond last years playoff loss thanks to the NFL putting up Flacco's ugly mug on nearly ever corner of Denver including a massive banner on the side of the stadium. If that isnt fuel to the fire, I dont know what is...

I'm going to go with "You don't know what is..."

Then play D, and don't let them.

I don't think you understand what "loser" means.
On the contrary, as a lifelong Viking fan, I can instinctively recognize the rare ability it takes to always lose when it matters most. Any "loser" can always lose. It take a rare loser to always lose at the perfectly wrong time. Fran Tarkenton also says "hi".

 
If you think Denver was running up the score, you are an idiot. No other way to put it. Sorry to hurt your feelings.

 
i'm scoresman so I know a thing or two about scores.

the broncos did the right thing. that's the kind of thing scoresman is all about.

 
If the Ravens didn't like the Broncos scoring so much then they should have stopped them from scoring so much.

 
why does someone always post about running up the score when a team scores 50 points?? its the NFL... if the defenses can't stop the offense from scoring 50 points they deserve to have the score run up on them...

besides the fact that after that bonehead play by the broncos defender the Ravens scored and were back in the game to some degree...

 
Who knew that 3 yard screen passes, that go for 78 yds would be the new definition of running up the score

 
Peyton Manning should have thrown a hail mary, instead of taking a knee the last play of the game. Running up the score is fun, especially when revenge is involved.

 
Speaking as a diehard Ravens fan, an individual who played Peyton in my most promising league this week, and an emotionally stable adult, I have no problem with what Peyton Manning and the Broncos did. There was a "disgraceful" team on the field, but it certainly wasn't the Broncos.

 
I think the Ravens ran the score up on themselves. Their D was so bad at the end that a kneel down would have somehow scored.

:goodposting:

It's kind of wierd to see the Ravens D suck so bad. Terrible tackling and DBs taking horrible angles. Half the NFL teams would put up 35+ against that D last night.

They ought to be embarrassed.

 
I agree with the Ravens D-bashing. They would had trouble tackling an 80 year old woman with a cane.
