The Broncos/Raiders Game Analysis (If football was analysed the way right-wingers analyze politics)

by Ben Hoffman

The Broncos played the Raiders on Monday night and horrible is the only word that could be used to describe the Raiders. Or maybe awful. They really stunk up Sports Authority Field in Denver and the stench still lingers.

As with any bad team, penalties hurt the Raiders. They were penalized 15 times for 131 yards.

Raiders quarterback Jacoby Ford couldn’t seem to hold onto the ball. Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller speared the football out of Ford’s arms and strong safety Rahim Moore scooped it up at the Raiders 15. The Broncos scored easily, rubbing salt into the Raider’s wounds.

The Broncos delivered in all areas of the game. A Colquitt punt traveled 65 yards and was downed at the Raider’s 1 yard line, leaving the Raiders in dire straits.

Sebastian Janikowski, who is normally reliable for the Raiders, barely made a routine 63 yard kick.

The Raiders are truly a horrible team and they probably won’t want to show their faces in Denver again any time soon.

The final score was Broncos 20, Raiders 23.

  1. The liberal self-delusion continues. By the way, Republicans swept Tuesday’s special elections. That means they won.

  2. Didn’t take long for you to invoke Godwin’s Law, did it?

  3. Typical GOP supporter. A coward hiding behind anonymity. And you’re right about those special elections. But you actually think it was because they were from the GOP? Had nothing to do with the 13% approval rating Congress now has, huh? http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/congressional_job_approval-903.html

  4. Well, if you want to talk about cowardice, Hoffman keeps deleting my posts…

  5. You know, if one reads your post and doesn’t read the very last sentence, then you would expect the final score to be a crushing victory by Denver. Then the twist comes, the Raiders actually won the game. What kind of insane world do you live in when you state “The Raiders are truly a horrible team and they probably won’t want to show their faces in Denver again any time soon.” Then in the next sentence show that the Raiders won.

    Hell, if I was the Raiders, I would probably say a win is a win, no matter how ugly.

    Now the the wins in last Tuesday’s races. NY-9 A republican wins for the first time since the 1920’s. In NV-2, a republican crushes and I mean crushes his opponent. Those weren’t ugly wins at all.

    I would also like to remind you that the Democrats had control of both the Senate and the House in 2009 which happens to be when Congress reached its lowest point.

    LOOK FOR YOURSELF

    • I would also like to remind you that the Democrats had control of both the Senate and the House in 2009 which happens to be when Congress reached its lowest point.

      No it didn’t, you moron. Your chart says that 2008 it was 12% and in 2009 it went up to 17%.

  7. Rather than adding constructively to the conversation, it would seem that you are here just troll, make smug self righteous judgments and sneer at Ben for running his blog as he sees fit.

    Given that Hoffman does indeed delete many of my posts, you are obviously in no position to judge their contents. As it turns out, he does delete constructive dialog when he cannot counter it effectively.

  8. You little right-wingers are such whiners.
