PHIL SIMMS

(On Denver vs. San Diego): Anytime you do a Denver game you’re always curious to see what the opposing team does to Peyton Manning.   Can you slow their offense down?  Can you keep them from scoring over 30 points? No matter how good your offense is when you play the Broncos, there is tremendous pressure for your offense to score, and somehow find a way to keep them from going over 40.  It’s been proven to be tough.  You have a better chance of stopping him when he is on the road.  Because if the crowd is loud enough, maybe it can cut down his time at the line of scrimmage and his communication even though they have hand signals.  That is the formula they saw Indianapolis use and it still took a fumble at the goal line and all those turnovers, yet Peyton still scored in the 30s.

 

(On Philip Rivers): It didn’t go well at the end with Norv Turner and you wonder how it is going to work with a new coaching staff.  Is he still going to be the man? And you know I hate those phrases, but I’m using them for a reason.  There is no question about it - Philip Rivers is the man.  You can tell he’s the leader of the team.  Yes he is not the most graceful, quickest, strongest,  most-powerful armed quarterback in the league, but he sure knows how to play.  And for a guy that can’t run he seems to get out of more trouble than anybody else when you watch him play.  He moves in the pocket and he runs to throw the football and really what is shocking is how much he does it.

 

DAN DIERDORF

(On Baltimore): It is not desperation, but there is definitely a sense of urgency in Baltimore.  If they lose this week, which would be their fourth in a row, and fall to 3-6, the odds of them making the playoffs are long, long and long.  Though you can’t say definitively that their season would be over at 3-6, it can be seen from where they’re going to be if they lose.  They will be that close.  So, there is a great sense of urgency surrounding this team.  But I think Baltimore fully intends to right the ship this week back home at M&T.

(More on Baltimore): Their offense just hasn’t been getting it done.  In their last three games they’ve scored 17, 16 and 18 points.  In this modern, offensive-heavy National Football League, if you don’t get to 20 points, the chances of your team winning goes down exponentially.  Joe Flacco and the passing offense look completely out of synch.  They can’t run the football effectively.  They are only averaging 2.8 yards-per-carry.  When you consider they have backs like Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce, averaging less than three yards-per-carry is a head-scratcher.  They are a team looking for any good news they can find.  And a win over Cincinnati would certainly fill the bill.

(On Cincinnati): What an opportunity for them.  They get a chance to cripple the defending Super Bowl champions.  Both of these teams made the playoffs last year, but now the Bengals have a chance to put the Ravens away.
