Call a flag on that knee!

Olfin Bedwere: Aaron Levine's head doesn't really fit right on his body. Just saying.


He did kinda look like a muppet.

Foaming: Call a flag on that knee!


I was just thinking that, should have thrown a flag at the last second just to remind us how the rest of the night went in the second half. fark I think flags double the points in the second half.

Seattle has some things to work on after tonight. Denver has everything to work on.

mikaloyd: Seattle has some things to work on after tonight. Denver has everything to work on.


Special Teams especially. Didn't like Wilson's over throws in the second half either. He's got to calm down, start working on hitting his targets. Though Wilson without the Lynch threat is a bit easier to defend against.

Peyton got frustrated early (especially his last sequence in the second quarter) if that happens in prime time he might not be as good a pick up for fantasy as he was looking.

How's Matt Ryan looking?

I wouldn't read too much into it.  The donks worked a lot of their young guys and they put the ball on the ground constantly.  Peyton is not the type that regresses.  Our running game looks like a huge ? tho.

Who is Denver's lead back? Well either way you'll play the chargers, chiefs and raiders six freaking games, so you only have to win 3 more and you'll lock the division up.

It looks very up in the air right now. Hillman lost fumbles and Ball almost got Manning killed in pass protection.  So who knows.

Well to be fair to Denver they did play San Fran and then the Hawks, while preseason its not exactly a fair one two punch considering again the state of the AFC west.

Just like the Hawks real test will be when GB shellacks the crap out of them next weekend (I've seen the future, EJ Manuel rookie of the year bills win the super bowl, the apocolypse happens shortly there after because of Greg Stillson).

The west is really weak. Again. Chiefs could pose a threat if Charles can stay healty.  Which he can't. He's aleready out for the rest of the preseason.

Alex Smith will also crumble under the pressure of trying to prove that SF was dumb to let him go, which they weren't. Hell Seattle gave the raiders Flynn and the raiders are doing their best to make him regret not renegotiating and hanging on to Wilson's jock.

Peyton Manning will avert the apocolypse by chucking footballs at Stillson.

I do find it hilarious that Martin Sheen is thought of as a great fake president because of the west wing. Apparently Christopher Walken was trying to prevent a liberal utopia.

Matt Flynn is marked for death for sure.  Poor guy won't last 4 games and then Pryor will unleash the stink. It would be pretty awesome to see them turn to Tebow in midseason just for the lulz.

It can't be any worse than what they are doing now. Its funny seeing the AFC west in such disarray. Growing up in the 90's when Seattle was still in that division every god damn AFC west team would seemingly clown on the hawks regularly (aside from the raiders, because my mom liked the raiders so they had to lose to the hawks karma). Its weird Seattle is considered a good team, and just about everyone else in the West outside of denver is decidely not. What the f happened to the AFC west?

Olfin Bedwere: elguerodiablo: Olfin Bedwere: Everybody rips on Tavaris, but he's a solid backup QB.

Compared to other back ups hes actually really good but there's no way you want to roll him out as your starter. Even if he's put in due to injury you don't just shrug and say "eh he's close enough".

Hopefully if that happens, the defense will step up. He's not solid at all at starter, but at that point it would be a "just don't fark things up" situation.


Despite all the Russell Wilson love, Marshawn Lynch drives that offense, and the two guys behind him are wrecking balls, too.   The way this team runs, not even Tavaris could screw it up that bad.

To be fair to Tjack, at least this preseason he's actually showing a lot more poise than he's previously had. Though didn't he start out with AP lining up behind him? I swear he was the ball hander offer for Minnesota at one point.

CNN: "Starting defensive end Derek Wolfe was taken off the field on a stretcher after injuring his neck in the first quarter."

Well, technically yes, they did remove him on a stretcher. And immediately put him into an ambulance that had driven onto the field.

/was there at the game
//he was not moving much when he went down...

I popped on to the Broncos forum and checked out what their fans had to say. It's remarkable- they spent four hours complaining about the officiating- IN A PRESEASON GAME- and yet I can guaranfarkingtee you that those same fans told Seattle fans to deal with their SBXL loss and move on. Here's an idea- instead of crying about it, work on the shiat you have to work on. Manning and Welker will only win you so much, the rest of your team needs to get on their level.

/it's a preseason game, BFD
//Browner and Sherman are studs- they'd start on every single D in the league

Especially considering all the calls were against the Seahawks early - it was even pointed out that the Broncos did the same illegal downfield blocking with the ball in the air that the Seahawks got penalized for on the Broncos' only TD.

If you want some hilarious reading, check out the Broncos forum. Seattle buys off the refs, and the only reason Seattle has such a good record at home is because the refs go out of their way to look for penalties against the visiting team while ignoring Seattle penalties.

What I take away from this is massive hypocrisy. Seattle had a legitimate gripe in XL. For any fan of any team to complain about officiating in a game that doesn't matter, in the preseason especially, really demonstrates not only how ignorant their fan base is, but just how pathetic they are, too.

Denver drive: No penalties.
First DEN punt: Offsetting penalties.
Ensuing Seattle drive: Holding on Seattle. Holding on Seattle. False Start on Seattle (IIRC this is the one where no one moved and then the Denver guy stood up and pointed at McQuistan until the refs threw a flag)...after the TD, personal foul on Denver, basically meaning a touchback becomes a touchback...realistically no penalty.
Denver drive: No penalties.
Seattle drive: Offensive PI Seattle.
Denver drive: No penalties (despite doing the same exact thing Seattle just got PI for).
Denver drive (Seattle KR TD before this): When Seattle returns the fumble for a TD, personal foul for taunting.

So by the time Denver actually has a penalty of significance called on it, it's down 24-7, with the Seahawks having been called five times for non-offsetting penalties. Man, those refs SUCK at fixing things for Seattle.

/the next penalty on Denver offset a penalty on Seattle and was for illegal formation
//the same guy was in an illegal formation on the next play too, but the other foul was a personal foul on Denver, so the first penalty that was actually assessed against Denver (f*ck the whole "oh, you kicked off from the 50 instead of the 35" as though he didn't go through the end zone on the one before and after that) came after an incomplete pass on 3rd down in the second quarter, down 17 points, which turned a punt on Manning's last drive into a punt.

According to the Bronco fans, you're a homer who didn't see every single Seahawk either holding, pass interfering, or leading with their helmet. Also according to them, the alleged hi/low on Wolfe should be penalized with a fine, suspension, and possibly death.

Like I said earlier, Seattle had a legit gripe after XL. I can't believe fans of any team would cry as much as Denver fans did last night. What a bunch of girls.

/you and I apparently watched the same game, btw

Of course. I'm just going into specifics here because I have no interest in going to the Broncos boards and trolling - I rarely troll, despite what people here would have you believe. I just disagree with most of the crap the mainstream media is peddling.

/which most of the time is just an extreme viewpoint created to get clicks
//I just view most everything as not that big a deal, or like to point out where it's funny how the viewpoint changes when it's a certain type of person in trouble
///like how suddenly everyone in the media hates the NCAA's amateurism rule when it's "Johnny Football" in trouble - when it was various black stars? Oh, no, it's all about how these kids violated the rules and have character issues.
