He also let go of the best QB Denver's had in years, just because he's not a strict passing quarterback like Elway. Elway's a legend, but he needs to stick to his used cars.

when i first read this, i thought, "elway got rid of cutler?" then i thought about it for two seconds and remembered that it was mcfarkingretard that shipped off cutler. and brandon marshall. and peyton hillis. and tony schefter.
im having a hard time figuring out if youre serious or just joking around.
if youre calling Lord Tebow the best QB denver has had in years then there is no point in taking this discussion any further.

im a huge broncos fan. i appreciate what tebow did last year. but dont say hes the best QB denver has in years. denver had their QB of the future and he got traded to the bears.

It's not so much that Tebow isn't a strict passer, it's just that he's not good at the passing part. And being able to throw the ball accurately is kind of important for a QB. If you want to be successful in the NFL you need a QB that can THROW the ball, first and foremost. Being able to run it is a bonus, for sure, but throwing ability is paramount.
 
2012-07-18 06:47:24 AM  
How about we just put a "morals clause" in any stadium financed by taxpayers.

Let a few NFL teams take a $1 million dollar hit whenever a player is arrested-I'll bet the problem gets solved real quick.

You could save a lot of money on a receiver corps if your QB couldn't pass. Just hire a bunch of 300 pound "receivers" that look an awful lot like offensive linemen. We're talking serious crack back blocks.

With the signing of Peyton Manning in the off-season, the Denver Broncos were thrust back into the conversation as Super Bowl contender.

...by idiots, ESPN, and Broncos fans.
Oh sorry. I said idiots 3 times didn't I.

By week 12 I expect all 4 AFC West teams wobbling around .500 (the best at 7-5). The one least hit by injury and/or with the easiest closeout schedule flops over the line at 10-6.
If Denver or KC end up with a playoff home game they'll get past the WC round.

The Donks will take the division if Manning stays healthy for 16 games but that isn't happening.

Likewise, the Raiders will take it if DMC stays healthy for 16 games but that also isn't happening.

So that leaves the Chumps and Dolts to fight over who the "winner" is in the NFL's special olympics division.

How often does it snow in Denver during the football season?

Hint...not often. It averages 60 degrees for all home games here.

Vail is 90 minutes west if you want snow.

I agree that McDaniels was a dumpster fire of a coach, and I like most of the moves Elway has made from the front office, but I don't expect much success from John Fox. He's a run-first coach, and his gameplans are often suspect. People forget that Delhomme wasn't calling the pass plays in that playoff game.
 
2012-07-18 12:20:22 PM  
I had been referring to the Vikings as "Bengals West". I may need to reverse that and call the Bengals "Vikings East". Arrests are one thing. I wonder what the conviction rates and time served amount to.

I'll even say he's the least likely QB playing next year to get injured. He has never missed a game due to injury. The first surgery he had was elective, and he would have played last year had he not had it. I don't see why everyone is questioning his ability to stay healthy, maybe he's a bit more fragile, but he's also pretty good at keeping out of harms way and tough. You don't play 10+ years in the NFL without missing a start and not have those traits.

Oh I'd say it's likely way, way, way higher than that particular demographic. But probably not high at all when compared to the population at large.

You mean the four games where they went 1-3 and Orton cracked 250 yards twice against atrocious pass defenses in Green Bay and Oakland? Orton got dumped because they were losing and Elway and Fox would had nothing to gain by keeping him in.

No one said they were. But the "conventional wisdom" is that they are going to struggle to learn a completely new way of doing things for Manning because for 8 whole games in their entire playing career they had to run block for Tim Tebow.

That's stupid talk.
