“Karma Elway, Karma”

Friday, January 18th, 2013

I just finished eleven Sierra Nevada Pale Ales and I’m here to tell the truth to some of you people out there. My words are iron and I cannot and will not be stopped.

Feels good to be a Broncos fan right now, don’t it?

I don’t blame that Peter Tebow one bit for razzing Mr. Elway. Imagine your kid brother finally gets his chance to start for a faltering NFL team and then gets ridiculed each week by Big Daddy Elway and his cohorts in the media. After each win you hear a bunch of crap from Broncos alumni Sharpe, Jackson and Schlereth. I don’t want to hear about 8-8, that kid would have brought us to 10-6 last year had he started earlier. He went 7-4, 8-5 counting the playoffs. Seems people want to blame the last three losses solely on him too, that’s fine with me. I’ll blame the eight wins on him if that’s how we’re gonna gauge things.

I heard Brady Quinn completed fifty-eight percent of his passes this year. Isn’t that something? I bet the folks in Kansas City just can’t wait to start him next year. I heard he can make all the throws at the pro level. Amazing.

 

I don’t know about you, but last year after that I was proud to be a Broncos fan. Under fifty percent passing completions too. I wonder why the sports press don’t hold Blaine Gabbert or Brian Hoyer’s feet to the fire? They ain’t never won nothing, the only coming from behind they’ve ever done is probably on some cheap floozy at a college keg party.

You thought this year’s playoff collapse was bad? How about if they lose in the playoffs next year? Talk about pressure to perform, talk about a curse.

I have a sneaking suspicion that “Mile High Magic” left the building with Tebow. Unfortunately for Tebow it doesn’t work in New York and unfortunately for the Broncos they unceremoniously booted it out of Colorado.

Fast forward to the Broncos acquisition of Manning.

I didn’t like it.

Still don’t.

Didn’t like one bit how it went down.

Let me ask some of you people something, especially you sea cucumbers out there: Do you love being led by a Colt in the twilight of his career? Do you honestly love this?

It don’t sit right with me, never did.

I would have much rather we kept Tebow and drafted Osweiler. Perhaps Tebow would have been benched mid-season or perhaps the Broncos would get to the playoffs, fail once more and then decide to go with Osweiler.

I would have been much, much happier. These players are Broncos, not some Colt we are renting for three seasons or so. Nothing personal Manning, but I don’t like this situation one bit.

On top of that, I wanted a running back, middle linebacker, safety and two defensive tackles. You know, bolstering this not-ready-yet team instead of shelling out millions to a Colts QB in the twilight of his career.

We threw a bunch of money on an aging Colt who may or may not play to his potential in the icy Colorado post season. Much of Manning’s greatness occurred in the cozy confines of a dome and add to that the fact that he is 9-11 in the playoffs–no sure thing the Broncos will get to the big show next year either.

Can’t argue his greatness in the regular season.

But I’d rather get on with the future.

I believe the Broncos could have gotten to the playoffs this year with a Tebow or Osweiler (if Osweiler turns out to be as good as he looked in preseason, I happen to think yes). 10-6 wouldn’t have been out of the question in this raw sewage AFC west. Hell, I firmly believe the Broncos would have won the early Raiders and Chargers games last year had we started the kid.

I was shocked that Manning chose Denver because this team doesn’t have a great defense and still has many needs.

How about that “great Broncos defense?”

Yes they’re great against the septic tank of the AFC west. Yes they’re great against a declining Saints, a horrible Panthers and a lowly Browns. The Broncos defense is great against crap and mediocre teams.

When it comes to some real competition, the Broncos defense gets whacked. They get whacked because not a whole lot has changed.

This “great number2 defense in the league” needs TWO defensive tackles, a middle linebacker and a safety. Rahim Moore shouldn’t be on the team next season. This team sorely needs an enforcer back there who can lay out running backs, instead they have a kid whose only big hits are on defenseless receivers.

Edge rushers alone does not a defense make. How the hell long is it going to take for Denver to realize this? The entire middle of that defense needs an overhaul. I knew it, you should have known it too. That Bob Smith knows it, who the hell is this Bob Smith commenter anyways? I bet he is a damn disciple of P.P.

The Broncos got whomped when they faced a good balanced offense. This defense keys on the pass and they get run over all day. This defense keys on the run and gets torched through the air all day (see last Sunday’s pathetic display.) I knew for a fact this team would get smashed when they played New England. The Patriots have a decent running game this year and Tom Brady doesn’t miss those wide open receivers like Joe Flacco does.

Did any of you people watch the SoundFX replay of last Sunday’s game? I sure as hell did.

“Hey, so a field goal will win it?” a beleaguered Von Miller asked Elvis Dumervil.

“Yeap, yeap,” a sullen Dumervil replied.

I actually do feel a little sorry for Von Miller and Champ Bailey. They are both class act professionals unlike some others but they both had a lousy game.

First I was disgusted. Next I remembered how lucky I was this season to keep my distance from these Broncos and not be emotionally invested in them. I knew they weren’t as good as their record seemed to indicate. The offense performed a little better than I expected. I expected Manning to be good, but oh by the way, when it came to receivers it wasn’t really Thomas or Decker that impressed. It was Stokley, Dreesen and Tamme.

Stokley, Dreesen and Tamme made more huge plays for this offense at critical points in games all season long. Hell, what did our big receiver Thomas do last Sunday? I saw Anquan Boldin out there getting open and making plays. Demaryius Thomas needs to do more, either that or we need another wide receiver. The “QB just couldn’t get the ball to them” is no excuse this year. I believe the Broncos need one more fast, dynamic receiver and kick Decker to the slot. I do not believe the Broncos are as “set” as some people think at receiver. They can get better. They can also upgrade a tight end, our guys played OK but it would be nice to have the second coming of Shannon Sharpe out there.

This offense came together a little better than I expected this year, but overall it wasn’t a big surprise. Our running game is mediocre, it’s good enough against bad teams but fails to produce overall mainly because we don’t have anything special at running back. Like I’ve said this team needs a young Willis McGahee.

Can you imagine if this team kept last year’s read option offense and drafted a running back like Doug Martin? He put up 1400 yards on a lousy team, just imagine what he could have done instead of the aging, oft injured knees of you know who.

You know that ungrateful guy who spouted off during the offseason with a bunch of anonymous players?

I heard he was gonna put up much more than 1,200 yards this year. Last I counted it was 730, sorry there Willis.

When people started to say “look out for Knowshon Moreno” in the ass end of this season I laughed my balls off. I wasn’t fooled.

Are kidding me? A sea slug could have sensed it was just a matter of time for Knownshon to get injured once again. The kid can’t carry the load running between the tackles, if you were smart you’d only use him on certain plays such as screens and catching out of the backfield. That was moronic. I’m not too impressed by Hillman although he’s OK he’s just not the answer.

Some people have the audacity to say this Broncos team might be like the one that lost to Jacksonville sixteen years ago in the playoffs. You’re s&^tting me right? You mean the one that had Terrell Davis? You better hope we can draft a Terrell Davis this year. If the Broncos were smart, they’d realize they can’t ride Manning’s arm all the way to the big show. They need to run a little more, especially in the cold. They need a strong runner like McGahee who has moves like Moreno. The Broncos will be picking late in the first round and that’s exactly where they might be able to land a decent running back this year.

Speaking of John Fox and smarts — yes that was a pathetic decision to take a knee with thirty second on the clock. I guarantee it was a pathetic decision no matter what is said about it because it will never happen again.

Elway wouldn’t have taken a knee there, why the hell should Manning have?

No matter, the Patriots would have sh-lacked the Broncos this weekend.

Team’s not ready yet, sorry.

Woody Paige: Man on an Island

Tebow will eventually replace Orton again as starter

I have to give credit where credit is due. Woodrow is the only one at the Denver Post who is in the right about Tebow and Orton. He’s been consistent about both of them.

Woodrow

Year after year Paige predicts doom and gloom with Orton as the starter and he’s been right. He exaggerates how horrible Orton is every year, but it’s true that KO’s play is merely ho-hum and he is not the future.

Paige is a man on an island at the Post when it comes to Tebow, he’s the only one who sees the truth. We should give this young player the shot–not these two journeyman we already know about. Maybe this Fox thinks he’ll sprinkle some magic beans and turn the journeymen into world beaters. That Krieger, Kiszla, Legwold and especially that Klis are a bunch of dingleberries with an axe to grind. Bunch of dung pile scavengers. Especially that Klis who talks up Brady Quinn like he’s on par with the Manning brothers.

Hope you enjoy it Klis, hope you get what you want week eight when Quinn comes in to stink up the place and gets booed straight out of “Sports Authority” field for good. I’ll be enjoying it. I’ll be laughing my balls off.

Broncos Release Buckhalter, Sign Undrafted RB Mario Fannin

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Thanks for your service Buckhalter. Suppose we’d rather have a younger injury prone back with fumbling issues. Who knows, maybe this Fannin can get over his fumble-itis and manage to stay on the field. Five ten and two hundred and thirty pounds running a 4.37 doesn’t sound too bad though, worth a shot.

Running Backs

I hear a lot of talk about DeAngelo Williams–I don’t want him. We already have him: Knowshon Moreno

We don’t need Williams unless you’re going to completely give up on Moreno. DeAngelo Williams isn’t going to push the pile, and he ain’t gonna “find the holes” where there ain’t any to begin with. I believe our offensive line absolutely sucked at the power blocking scheme these last two years. The switch didn’t work. It didn’t matter who ran behind our line whether it was Hillis or whoever. It’s still too soon to label Moreno a bust, especially since he’s been getting hammered in the backfield–that ain’t all his fault.

Moreno is a bust if you think he’s supposed to be a number one every down back. Yes, he is a bust if that’s the aim. He’s proven he can’t be that guy. Whenever we ask him to be that guy he gets injured. However, when you think of Moreno, you should think of Kevin Faulk, Reggie Bush and the like. Get him in the open field, have Timmy Teebs throw screens to him, have him run draws. He has moves and he’s lightning when he gets in the open field. The problem is getting there, plus he absolutely needs a change of pace back to help him tow the load.

Enter Willis McGahee or Ronnie Brown. I want either of these two. I want a hard runner, I want devastation at the point of attack likened to a Mike Anderson. We haven’t had a back that can run with power since Mike Anderson and that ain’t good. Moreno and DeAngelo Williams ain’t no recipe for converting tough yardage. Wouldn’t mind McGahee or Brown, yeah we got Lendale White but that’s a tough injury to come back from, ain’t no guarantee he’ll be the same player.

Defensive Tackle Woes

I would be happy if the Broncos could sign a Mebane or a Cofield, but I have a feeling the template is run stopping beef in the middle and pass rush from the outside. We need big defensive tackles who can create enough havoc to let Miller and Dumervil do their thing from the outside. Someone from the second tier of the defensive tackle free agents seems more likely to me, like an Alan Branch, Gabe Watson, Aubrayo Franklin,Stephen Bowen maybe even Cullen Jenkins.

Orton to the Dolphins

I hope we can get something good out of the Orton trade. I see that LaCanfora changing his tune. Orton’s gone. I don’t hate the guy, it’s just clear he’s not the answer and I don’t want him around bellyaching when he ain’t the starter no more.

When Orton goes the way of the Dodo I wouldn’t mind picking up Jake Delhomme. He had a dismal year last year, I’m sure he is humbled by it. He knows his future in the NFL is a backup–if anything. Delhomme’s had a long career, playoff experience and he played in a Superbowl. Homie the clown would be a good mentor for Elvis–better than Brady Quinn–what’s Quinn gonna teach the King anyways?

I hope we get a player and a third or fourth rounder for Orton. A third rounder wouldn’t be bad either. I don’t see us getting a second rounder for him. Maybe an escalator if he performs to a certain degree… But no matter, anything, it’s time to turn the page on the two legged goat that is the Orton saga.

Lastly, I have been in litigation with that “Panff” loser. He’s come back, out of nowhere to redesign the site at the disgusting request of that Tiki who is a degenerate and probably a sot. He speaks like a besotted fool, that’s for damn sure. No matter, I have Shapiro on speed dial. I’ll let them change the site a little, but it will cost. That loser Tiki thinks he’s something else since he’ll be returning to the US next month. I told him outright that he sucks and no one wants to hear his lame blatherings. He adds nothing to this site, whilst my track record is impeccable. That’s right: impeccable. I am a better sage than any at that Denver Compost. I’ve decided to prove this with a poll. Feel free to let that Tiki know what kind of a loser he is. I thank you people in advance.

P.S. I happened by some idiot in the Denver Post forums still lamenting the loss of Huckdort. Can you believe that? Can you even fathom that? I’m sure you can’t. My readers know better. My readers know the truth. That person obviously never heard my unrestricted, unabated truths. That person was clearly not a PP Dublinksi fan. Isn’t it great to have knowledge? Unbelievable this person lamenting the Dort. I’ll tell you something, that Dort is on thin ice. Ditka knows. He effin knows what the deal is. Ditka said he’d play Tebow even if he threw underhanded. He knows character, he knows what’s up, he knows who looks right. That Dort ain’t no leader. Can you imagine if the Dort gets to the playoffs this year and throws three picks to lose the game? Who would be surprised by that? They would run him right out of there if he did that, and that possibility ain’t no stretch.

Happy to be a Broncos Fan

Monday, January 17th, 2011

The Patriots, the Falcons…

14 and 2. 13 and 3.

14-2, 13 and 3 and they ain’t going to the Super Bowl?

I’d wager that’s almost a worse predicament than going 4 and 12 and having the second pick in the draft.

Mike McCoy Staying Put

Mike McCoy will be the Broncos offensive coordinator next year. Not a bad thing, he did OK calling the offense in those last couple games this season. The only problem I had with him were on some of those Tebow designed runs, at times they were way too obvious.

Looking Forward to the St. Louis Game?

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

I’m not. I’m not even updating the graphic, screw it I can’t be bothered.

Happy Thanksgiving to you people out there. Don’t cut any boofarts at the table. You know things are bad in Broncos land when I find myself agreeing with Woodrow for once on that Tebow.

My condolences to the family of Rob Lytle on his passing at the too young age of 56. I’ll never forget the AFC  Championship game where he fumbled against the Raiders and it wasn’t called. We got a huge gimme and I loved it. I especially loved it since it was Pumpkinhead’s last game in Denver and he ranked it as his second all time worst moment as coach of the Raiders. Serves him right, couldn’t happen to a better pumpkin-headed dirigible buffoon.
