Chargers Up 24 at the Half

I take full credit for the miraculous ghost trip by the great Eric Decker. (and other foibles)

I heard this team was much better off this year on paper.

You know what yous can do with that paper.

Things are lookin’ up, ain’t that right Tom Jackson.

 

Broncos 21 Patriots 31 McGahee the Goat

Isn’t it fitting that #23 was the big goat today. I enjoyed this loss.

Broncos lose to the Patriots yet again.

The Broncos need to draft a younger more dynamic version of McGahee. Add that to the offseason list.

Surprisingly, the Broncos did a halfway decent job of containing Tom Brady today.

Not surprising, they were gashed for 251 yards on the ground.

How about that 3rd and 14 or that 3rd and 17?

Looks like last year, and the year before and the year before.

The only reason this game looked somewhat close was due to the Patriots overconfidence.

This game should have been 38 to 7.

Broncos better hope that San Diego really does have some problems this year.

We’re one game away from 2-4 are you people excited?

A collective sigh of relief in Dove Valley.

Wishful Broncos Prepare for Beatdown

Unfortunately for most of you people celebrating out there, the Broncos are heading into a major ass whooping this Sunday.

I am reality.

Reality states the Broncos just whipped up on an undermanned 6-10 football team.

I just read a pathetic piece by the great Mark Kiszla on how the Broncos have a real quarterback this time around. Mr. ” Kickin it with Kiz ” fails to realize the Patriots offense hasn’t changed much since last January.

Neither has the Broncos defense.

Sorry.

Big trouble in little Foxboro.

Unlike many of you people, I won’t be sad come this Sunday.

I’ll be firing up the popcorn, chicken wings and loading up on beer while I watch the beautiful letdown.

If we don’t beat San Diego the following week (it’s a toss-up) I will make an earth shattering announcement.

So to all those Broncos faithful who are adding Welker, Gronkowski and Brady to their Fantasy Football pick’ems this week…

I won’t hold it against yous.

Broncos Should Thank Lucky Stars for Tamme, Stokley

As much as I don’t approve of the name “Tamme” I have to give credit to these two.

Who does Peyton Manning throw to on third down, when the going gets tough?

It’s not Eric Decker. It’s not Demaryius Thomas. It’s usually either Stokley or Tamme. Even at the risk of getting picked.

I like hearing buffoons say Thomas and Decker are great. Not so, they have potential — moreso Thomas, but they are not great. Neither of them has proven themselves to be a dependable go-to receiver. Even the great Kyle Orton chose Brandon Lloyd over these two and got picked off like crazy last year forcing the ball to Lloyd time and again.

Maybe Orton and Manning just don’t make good reads. Maybe they are incapable of hitting their checkdowns.

I want to hear more excuses.

Maybe Thomas and Decker just aren’t very good. Maybe this defense isn’t great either. Schlereth and Sharpe sure think so. That 18th rank defense that got shredded by the great Caleb Hanie is surely going to be top five this year.

There are some people in this organization and some Broncos faithful that need a cold dose of reality. This team is not great. They didn’t just need a “real quarterback” as a final piece of the puzzle. What did this organization think early last year? Eh? 10-6 maybe 11-5 with Kyle Orton? Career year? Run the ball 500 times?

How’d that work out for you fellas?

You know, it’s never easy playing the blood rival Raiders and Chiefs — even when those teams suck proverbial balls.

I could see these Super Bowl Broncos falling to 1-4. This team is erratic, unpredictable and incomplete.

Just like last year. Who knows, maybe even worse.

Houston 31 Broncos 25 The Curse Continues

Elway Teeth

Elway Approved

 

The 1-2 Broncos are feeling the full effect of the PP Dublinski curse.

If you think this is a Super Bowl team your head is in a toilet.

I am not just on point, I am the truth. I am reality.

This is a wild card team, and the Broncos better thank their lucky stars that they’re in a division filled with raw sewerage.

8-8 might even win the west again.

What will they be in a couple weeks eh? 2-3?

I’m not impressed. Highly unspectacular right out of the gate.

And we all know how this team is notorious for folding in the ass end of the season in recent years.

Last year they had the nerve to blame it on the quarterback.

Tough week for Broncos fans. Not for me. I watched Peyton get picked off multiple times as a detached, unaffected observer. Was nice for a change actually. Normally I’d get pissed off about the offensive turnovers and lack of a pass rush. Didn’t phase me at all.

I said it before and I’ll say it again: The 2012 Broncos are a wildcard team. 8-8, 9-7 at best, 7-9 at worst (barring injuries).

Mark Schlereth had the audacity to say the 2011 Broncos had a great defense and a great offensive line. He repeated that at the beginning of this season. The offensive line is OK, but saying the defense was and is great?

Great corners maybe. Great edge rushers. That’s about it.

Hopefully the Denver Broncos organization is finally figuring out that edge rushers alone do not make a great pass rush.

Our defensive middle sucks from the defensive tackles to the middle linebacker to the safeties. You see them safeties tackling eh? Pretty impressive ain’t it? The Broncos don’t have that thumper back there, no enforcer back there to strike fear in the hearts of an offense. Maybe Rahim Moore can lay out a defenseless receiver at times, but that’s about it. The Broncos don’t have a defensive tackle worthy of fearing either and their middle linebacker is average at best.

Oh, but I suppose they’re a great defense. Super Bowl bound I heard. All these sea cucumbers over-hyping this team. Just swaying with the tide and its faulty logics. Their incongruity on display for all to see. Their puerile verbal turdage plugging up the true narrative. My compass is true north, my ways are built on a rock and not on moronic, fickle sands.

On top of that, how bad did the Broncos get shredded through the air at times? Great passing teams will have a field day against Denver. Like I said, edge rushers alone don’t cut it.

In fairness, this team is not far away and I give them some credit for battling back in the second half. They have a chance at becoming a contender as quick as next year if they’re lucky in the offseason.

The curse is still in effect and you may certainly blame me for Peyton “Pumpkinhead” Manning’s Jay Hucks the ball then Dort gets picked off-like performance in the first half.

Peyton Manning Broncos

Manning is OK, but please do something about the shape of the head.

Broncos Re-Sign Caleb Hanie? Are You Kidding Me?

Unbelievable. I will not be insulted like this. Looks like I’m outta here yet again.

Come week 10 we’ll see who the geniuses are.

We’ll also see who the rubes, degenerates and sea cucumbers are. The decrepit sea cucumbers just going with the flow, going wherever the tide takes them based on snake oil, dingleberry juice and half-truths.

Peyton Manning Bench

Peyton Manning’s ass becomes one inch flatter as the decrepit Steelers own the time of possession by a full ten minutes.

I am a rock. My words are iron.

This team is gonna get hammered in the coming weeks. The flaws are evident. To those who have an ear, let them hear what P.P. Dublinski is saying.

To the rest of yous, I can’t do nothin’ for ya.

Sorry.

Mark my words the narrative will change.

The curse is still in effect.

It’s just one game.

But oh no, the Broncos are Super Bowl bound.

For most of that game, a hobbled Steelers offense led in points and controlled the time of possession in a fashion hitherto never before seen. Pittsburgh managed long sustained drives as Manning sat bored on the bench. The Steelers failed to seal the deal in the Red Zone but that’s how better offenses will beat the Broncos and better running teams will pound the piss out of our mediocre defensive middle.

Even though the Broncos offense played well, I saw the flaws in the defense — no interior pass rush, mediocre safeties, very average middle linebacker and that Woodyard was nowhere most of the game — but to their credit they turned it on when they needed to after falling asleep time and again.
