    Coping with Mile High



    One of the major reasons Denver has such a great home field advantage of course is the altitude.

    Anyone who has tried to exercise within 24 hours of landing in the Rockies will know what that means -- you usually have about 70% of your normal endurance, etc.

    Wonder if having a Monday Night game will cause Billick and Co to treat this as a Sunday game -- e.g., go to Denver the day they would normally go for Sunday and allow an extra day for acclimatization. Think that would improve our chances of winning significantly.

    Question for Aaron this week/

    I think we always play the Broncos well, especially in Denver. We would have beaten them in their house last year if Boller had not been so bumbling.

    @Denver and at home against Carolina are very winnable games for us. Neither team has been impressive so far. We have a very, very good chance at going into the bye week at 6-0.

    If we go into the bye at 6-0 I'll drink Budweiser

    There are ways to combat the altitude change so that it doesn't affect you as much, which I'm sure the team knows about. I've been out to CO a couple of time recently and I'm getting ready to move there, and it seems to me that it affects everyone differently.

    We bought a piece of property on a mountain about 6 miles south of Breckenridge and our house here in MD is on the market now. Once it's sold, we're off to CO!

    And before anyone asks -- NO! I WILL NOT BECOME A DENVER BRONCOS FAN! What do you think the NFL Sunday Ticket is for??

    Anderson will certainly be ready to wreak havoc on his former team

    Donks are favored by 4.5. But I see a Ravens win by 10 or more. Good point on the altitude. Even though I am in outstanding shape, I could feel the drag on my body as soon as I got off the plane at DIA today. But, in our case: the extra day of acclimation to the altitude will help. We have owned this team. Even the demoralized 6-10 team lost by just 2 points.
