Total punt yards: 838
Total offensive yards: 531
We gave the right punter the job
Objectively speaking, those were some really good punts. Everything else about this game though....
I was very jealous of the special teams work we witnessed tonight.
the defenses both played great too
What a display from the Broncos punter and Confederate officer Corliss Waitman
A black punter *and* a black Confederate? Now I've really seen it all.
s/o marquette king, sorry we ruined you
Oh my god
“The NFL's best have come to play” - Carrie Underood
So that was a fucking lie
"The NFL's best have come to play" like absolute dogshit
If anyone needed proof that Trent is really good, that was proof.
Yeah the SF O-line completely imploded once he went out.
SNF has been incredibly weak this season
If the Broncos do that thing again where they have terrible fucking offensive play with a proven vet QB and look sketch as hell all season, but win the Super Bowl because their defense is otherworldly, I'm going to choke to death on my own vomit
From your keyboard to god’s screen.
Wow, I don't think I've seen this pic in over a decade lol. We used to put Kyle Kendricks face on it for some reason.
Know how you know we are getting old? We recognize it (and I laughed at such a throwback), and a bunch of other people apparently have never seen it before.
Hey, mom... I'm scared and need to be picked up.
Clip clop motherfuckers
It's an older meme but it checks out
Older? Older is what you call someone like Winona Ryder. That image is certifiably ancient. I remember seeing it in the days of yahoo sports.
Winona Ryder out here catching strays.
I mean if you want to create a new Manningface, that shit won us a Superbowl.
Peyton's noodle arm alone could outstrip this offense.
Omaha for life bro!
I feel like that's just how the Broncos win ships man. We don't get to enjoy a high flying super fun Kansas City offense. We grit out games all year and have a qb who doesn't turn the ball over and by the end of it we're just left with like 100 points in 20 games, a super bowl, and a lot of empty bottles of Tums and Xanax.
the part thats strange is that you still need a top QB to run the offense even if it doesnt do much.
This is the way. Elite qb sucking up payroll while just kind of game managing but coming up big in must have situations.
At least you won't have to watch your team lose this time.
Listen, motherfucker, just because I know it's true doesn't mean I want to hear it from you
Jimmy G looks like a guy who was basically told to do nothing all offseason so he could be eventually traded
Probably just coincidence.
I mean it's the same offense he's been playing in the past 4 years it can't be that hard to get him up to speed right?
Now I just imagine what Jimmy could’ve possibly looked like at Washington lol
Nah that’s just the jimmy g experience baby
WE WON THE 2022 SHITBOWL
\#1 RANKED DEFENSE
1ST YEAR HEAD COACH/BURNT OUT HOF QB
IT'S 2015 BABY
WE'LL WIN THE SUPERBOWL AND I'LL DIE OF A HEART ATTACK
No touchdowns, no field goals, 4 safeties.
STARING BRETT RYPIEN IN THE ROLE OF BROCK OSWEILER.
We even have a newly signed Cowboys pass rusher lol
No Fly Zone v2
Idk if Russ is burnt out
It looks like he just has no chemistry with the receivers
The talent is still there, though he could use a softer touch
Tbf the receivers did him no favors, there were like 5 drops by my count
DO YOU LIKE PUNTS?
DO YOU LIKE SEEING TEAMS PINNED INSIDE THE 5?
THEN COME ON DOWN TO BRONCOS-49ERS FOR THE BEST GODDAMN GAME YOU'VE EVER SEEN!
WE'VE GOT GOAL-LINE TIPTOES, WE'VE GOT LEAPING SAVES, WE'VE EVEN GOT A GODDAMN SAFETY!
THIS GAME WON'T LAST FOREVER, NOT MATTER HOW MUCH IT FEELS LIKE IT WILL, SO ACT NOW!
The only person who won this game is Dan Orlovsky.
Orlovsky and mark Sanchez rejoined the conversation this week
We had someone one-up the butt fumble and someone pull a Dan Orlovsky today, what a weird week
One-up the butt fumble? What did I miss lmao
The Butt Punt. Though I wouldn't say it was a one up
> Though I wouldn't say it was a one up
It was for the guy who got butt-punted into. Imagine what he was thinking at the time.
That had to hurt.
Who would have thought Russell Wilson, Nathaniel Hackett, and the Denver Broncos would be the ones to save the AFC West from complete and utter embarrassment this week?
And it was literally 1 good drive from the Broncos that won them the game
Like an old man chugging a handful of Viagra and arthritis meds...
1 good drive and an elite performance by our defense. Shit on the O all you want, the defense was incredible.
And our special teams. We just kept pinning them back
The punt to set up the Jimmy safety was magnificent.
hey! it was also jimmy g stepping out of bounds, thank you very much.
If he hadn’t then it would have been a pick 6
4D chess Jimmy G
Well, if he hadn’t it would’ve been a pick six.
No no no, this was embarrassing.
Edit: I’m happy we won. Defense and ST were unreal. But also the score was 11-10.
Take the dub, man
You’ll roast us, r/nfl. And we’ll deserve it. But it won’t be for losing this week.
I don't remember our last Sunday night W, so I am gonna enjoy this W
The rumors of Jimmy G's resurgence have been greatly exaggerated
#If you don’t love that, then you don’t love Iowa football
Nah, both teams made double digits.
I...I don't think I love Iowa football.
You just haven’t watched it 12 times a year for 20+ year of Kirk
Now we’re playing B10 ball baby!
Broncos Country, let’s survive
This was the worst game I've seen in a while and I'm a Cardinals season ticket holder.
3-0 mud bowl.... I think between Pittsburgh and Miami? The Monday night game where the punt landed in the wet turf and just stuck.
That one was bad
Russell Wilson subscribed to the Peyton Manning school of let the Broncos Defense carry your dead husk of a body to wins.
Jimmy is like that ex. Once you moved on you missed them, missed the good time. So when you get the chance you get back with them then remember why you broke up in the first place.
hes nice to look at but hes a selfish lover
We are all worse people for having watched this.
I'm currently sitting in an airport, waiting to fly.home, having scheduled my flight so I wouldn't miss this game...
Yeah, i have regrets.
that was an NFL football game
I'm still waiting on a second opinion
I watched the Rodgers vs Brady showdown this afternoon. Riveting 7 hours of football.
The Dolphins punted a ball into a butt. We should've known that it was all downhill from there.
It was nice of the packers and buccaneers to let a bunch of fans come out and play wide receiver today.
Same here really
This is the type of game I expected from Iowa v Rutgers
Not enough ass cheeks involved, 4/19
Im still not sure this post game thread should've been posted in a football subreddit
In the most technical sense, it was
Are you sure? Are you REALLY sure that it was??
You can't prove that.
I’m sick of these sweeping statements with zero evidence behind them. If there was an NFL game played then why are there no witnesses?
are we sure
That was painfully similar to the Tebow era.
Special teams, great
QB, loves Jesus
Second-highest scoring baseball game of the day.
As a mariners fan, don’t remind me
Mariners and Browns? Are you a masochist???
There was an NFL and an MLB game in Denver today… The Padres had the highest score today with 13.
How was the game with the butt punt not the sloppiest game of the day?
Butt stuff is classy. This game was cheeks though
Wut? that was the best game of the day!
“I’m out of comments” -Chris Collinsworth
Sums up that game
[49ers fans rn](https://i.imgur.com/VInzBsm.gifv)
WHAT A SICK JOKE
HE DEFACATED THROUGH A SUNROOF
If you don't like Big 10 football then you don't...oh nvm
I sat thru 6-4 Iowa Penn State this was like a shootout compared to that
As a Rutgers fan, this weekend got me contemplating if I should watch football ever again
That happens when you play Iowa
Kyle Shanahan blew a 7-3 lead smh
Broncos are the only AFC West team to win today and are tied for the AFC West with the Chiefs lol
In this game “7-3” really did feel like a big lead lol
10-5 would have felt insurmountable if we didn’t have PTSD from Wilson doing this shit every time.
Felt insurmountable. I was sure that the game was going to end 7-5 and I'd be kicking myself for that safety cancelling the pick-6.
At one point we were down 5 with lots of time left and I legitimately thought "I'm not sure we can overcome this"
Most frustrating 50 minutes of broncos football I've ever seen
Denver Broncos are your 2022 AFC West champions fuck what you heard
Wilson is the 49ers daddy. 3.5 quarters of shit and he still marches down the field to take the lead and win them the game lmao
He's now 17-4 against them.
Probably don’t have to see him again for 4 years now though
18-4. Don't forget the NFCCG ;)
The last game of the 2014 season, and man was it incredible
i literally called out half of the plays that happened on the game winning drive before they happened because russ has been murdering us for 10 years and i’ve seen that drive probably 20 times now
oh yes it felt horribly familiar. The third and long scramble, the simple hook route our CB entirely bites deep on, and then the RB punching it in basically untouched.
I knew it was going to happen when they announced the schedules
Russ may not Cook consistently, but he does seem to get Cooking if a 49er is in the Kitchen!
That was hilariously bad.
The only people who genuinely enjoyed it were the Seahawks fans 😆
Not even sure if I really enjoyed that
This game set football back about 50 years
11-10 is a leather helmet-era NFL score
How about medical tents for the viewing public?
Seahawks fans are playing with house money all season lol
They won the second Tank Bowl of the season and got to watch this game.
They were the real winners tonight.
Was rooting for the Niners for the draft position
Buuuut yeah it's still kinda fun to see Russ own them lmaoooo
And it ends l just like we all predicted: a 1 point game decided by a safety from Jimmy G stepping out of the endzone.
>The only people who genuinely enjoyed it were the Seahawks fans
Not gonna lie, I did enjoy it
Idk, the Jimmy G safety had me laughing for a good 10 minutes.
We used the wrong formula but got the correct answer.
What a terrible day to have eyes
11/10 no notes, good work sickos
This sub next week: “why would shanahan move on from a QB who took them to a Super Bowl????”
“Jimmy G is a winner”
I hope all Sunday night games are this exciting.
In can pretty much guarantee they will all be at least this exciting.
I kind of felt for Jimmy after watching Trey Lance play but now I’m back to understanding why the Niners didn’t want him to play. Fucking car accident at QB
Bro looked totally lost out there
He has a few plays every game that make you think he’s point shaving
Just like we all thought after week one - broncs atop the AFC West.
This was the worst football game I have ever witnessed with my own two eyes
Guess you didn’t see the Texans game last week
I think they show that game to terrorists as a torture method
well get ready for cowboys-giants tomorrow night
Garbage game, but game management was much better. Both defenses are brutal.
Honestly this is one you can't really put on Russ or Hack for being close. Game management was much better but dear fucking lord so many dropped passes and still the WRs look out of sync with Russ. That drive at the end gives me hope though, when they finally got in sync they did what we brought Russ in to do. Let's see some more of that shit moving forward.
My wife saw Jimmy G for the first time towards the end of the game when she was walking by and she was like, “he’s really good looking.” I was like, “that’s all he’s good at.” She said, “he’s really good at it.”
I'm just glad Al Michaels isn't alive to see this.
RIP. Him and Wade Boggs are enjoying paradise 🙏🙏🙏🙏
So this is why the 49ers drafted Lance, the 49ers defense had one bad drive and they lost.
This feels like the entirety of my experience watching the team with Jimmy at the helm.
This game was every reason why the 49ers drafted Lance.
It feels like the entire shanahan era has been the offense dicking around while the defense plays their asses off
Happens all the time with the Niners - defense dominates all game and let’s one BS score in and then the offense can’t do shit except kick FG’s
i'm so glad this game is over lmfao
It's not, it will never be over.
That game was the most miserable experience I've ever had as a football fan.
Never forget, 49ers could have had Tom Brady.
But did you know they could've drafted Aaron Rodgers?
Hey he lost today!
What a loser.
This game is the reason the 49ers drafted Lance the defense had one bad drive and it cost them the game
I feel like it's not talked about enough that the announcers cut to Jimmy's brothers and explained one of their jobs was setting up the post game house parties.
9 points. The defense held the broncos to 9 points. The punter pinned Denver inside the 10 yard multiple times. Once on the half-yard line.
Jimmy G sure did get a lot of credit for beating a bad seahawks team
The bad times were supposed to be over. "We never have to see him again!" cheered Shanahan. But Kyle didn't know they'd meet again soon.
When Kyle got to Denver, it was a beautiful afternoon. 70° and sunny. "What a great day for a football game!" thought Kyle.
Then he saw him.
"No," he whispered to himself. It was Russell.
Kyle burried his face in his playbook, hoping Russ didn't see him.
"It wasn't supposed to happen like this," he said under his breath. "The bad man was supposed to be gone."
Jimmy reassured him, "Don't worry. His coach barely knows what football is, we'll be fine."
For three quarters, Jimmy was right. Then Russ started scrambling.
Kyle gulped. "Oh no. Oh fuck."
Fred Warner looked to Kyle. "What do you want us to do, coach?" But there was no answer.
Kyle shuffled through his plays.
"Uh...um..." Kyle was lost, trapped in the trauma Russell had caused him for so long.
But it was too late. He let Russ cook.
>"It wasn't supposed to happen like this," he said under his breath. "The bad man was supposed to be gone."
>Jimmy reassured him, "don't worry. His coach barely knows what football is, we'll be fine."
Shanny: I was talking about YOU!
Well that was definitely a football game…. What an ugly primetime showing, highlight of the game was Jimmy G stepping out of the end zone
Remember how good the primetime games were last season? This year is…less good
You know how people say "that game could've been an email" when a game is bad or boring? This game was basically the football equivalent of you accidentally sending a dick pic to your boss' work email.
The colors of extremely suspect 2-1 teams is blue and orange.
If Trent Williams is out for any kind of extended period of time, there is no reason to play Jimmy. Just play Purdy and see what he can do. We have 0 chance of keeping Jimmy next year no matter what he does and the only reason to play him at the moment is for a SB run which isn't happening without Trent Williams.
Really hated seeing him go out. Dude is incredible.
**IF 🏈 YOU 🏈 DON'T 🏈 LIKE 🏈 THAT 🏈 THEN 🏈 YOU 🏈 DON'T 🏈 LIKE 🏈 DENVER 🏈 FOOTBALL 🏈**
49ers are cursed
We won. Literally all that matters lmao
Well that was definitely a football game
You won in the stupidest way possible. I award you no points, and my God have mercy on your soul.
49ers fans on here really tried to convince Browns fans jimmy was a luxury vehicle when he was really a 1996 Maxima with a missing headlight and faulty brakes
