John Fox Gone, Peyton Should Go Too

Monday, January 12th, 2015

You know, the Broncos certainly lacked fire in that game yesterday, that embarrassment of a game.

So did the coaches.

Why? Because their “leader” Peyton Manning was stinking the joint up. Is he going to be all rah rah? Nope, don’t think so.

It’s up to the coaches to do that. I didn’t see any fire. I read Elway let the entire coaching staff know they could look elsewhere.

Good.

It’s like they were all ho-hum. Ho-hum, we’ll eventually catch up and win this game. Yeah right.

I noticed the crowd sucked too. Way to reaffirm you’re not the Mile High of old. Bunch of latte sipping, weed smoking, hooka worshiping gooned out hipsters in the stands. They know how to smoke, boo and are at least bright enough to leave early to beat traffic.

I say let Manning walk even if he’s going to play next season. People think that means this team needs to rebuild and we’re done chasing a championship for a while. I would say they were probably the same fools who thought this defense and running game was great when Manning took over.

Like I outlined in my previous post, the Broncos can get much better in one year this time around. Address offensive tackle early in the draft, draft another running back, acquire middle linebacker and safety. Acquire someone who can rush from the middle of the defense.¬† I would say goodbye to Wes Welker and I would even let Julius Thomas go. Thomas can’t run block for squat, I say let him walk, we can get somebody else to catch and block at TE for less money.

I’ve been impressed with the little we’ve seen of Brock Osweiler. Let him lead this offense, he’s got freakish height and he’s shown athleticism out there. He can move well for a big guy and protects the football for the most part when he’s been out there.

Maybe, just maybe I can finally be on board with the “new” Broncos.

Aren’t You Glad You’re Not A Broncos Fan?

The usual suspects...

The usual suspects…

I am.

When are you sea cucumbers gonna realize I am reality?

This is a worse upset than the Ravens game two years ago. The Colts will get squashed next week, the NFC will probably win the Super Bowl but at least the Pats should make a game of it.

The Broncos sure as hell wouldn’t of.

Last March I told Broncos GM John Elway I wanted him to do a few things. He did all of them except the most important one: Draft a running back and change the offense to run around twenty times a game.

Once the draft passed by and we didn’t grab a running back in the 2nd to 4th rounds I said the hell with it. I didn’t update the site. I knew the Broncos wouldn’t change from their “Omaha” pass-happy ways and this season would end badly.

I sure as hell wouldn’t be a part of it.

Fail to do what P.P. Dublinski wants and you’ll get whacked. Every time.

Now I do give John Elway some credit for changing the Broncos offense after the disastrous Rams game this year. They finally changed to the type of offense I wanted. He finally listened to P.P.

Too little, too late.

You can’t really do that mid-season, this kind of change requires an entire offseason and preseason.

I told you people I didn’t like this Peyton Manning to the Broncos deal from day one. Day &%&ing one. I said it would not result in a Super Bowl win and it hasn’t. Baltimore embarrassment, Super Bowl embarrassment, now this embarrassing¬† loss. Isn’t it wonderful?

John Fox: Perennial Playoff Loser

John Fox: Perennial Playoff Loser

John Fox should go and so should Peyton Manning. That old fuddy-duddy Fox doesn’t do jack squat, he’s uninspiring and they should make him the fall guy for these terrible post-season losses.

They should tell Manning to move on, maybe retire, better yet trade him to some desperate team.

None of this will probably happen. Quite honestly I’d rather see Brock Osweiler get the nod at QB.

I said that three years ago. We could have fielded a different team by now. But I digress…

Quite possibly, there is a silver lining to all this.

First, the Broncos defensive acquisitions in 2014 panned out pretty well. Demarcus Ware returned to form, the safety T.J. Ward was good and Talib was decent. All three were good pickups and the fact that the Broncos defense still isn’t that great after acquiring them buttresses my position all along: No, the Broncos defense isn’t great and hasn’t been for years. Sorry. The Broncos need help at the other safety position opposite Ward, middle linebacker and they need someone who can rush the passer from the inside. The “Colts style” bookends of Ware and Miller aren’t enough, people should get that by now, they need someone in the middle, either a linebacker or lineman who can rush the passer.

The Broncos need an offensive tackle opposite Clady and they need a big-time running back. CJ Anderson proved he is a good player this year, he’s not great though. He’s no LeVeon Bell. The Broncos need a Bell type who can take the ball to the house when a hole appears and also catch some. Someone big and fast. CJ Anderson is fine, I’d honestly give up on Montae Ball, never seen any moves or power from him. Keep Hillman for occasional third down duty.

All this could be accomplished in one offseason. The Broncos could actually be formidable next year, but that also hinges on one thing: Peyton Manning.

Peyton Manning Forehead

Something ain’t quite right in Denver…

My God, can this guy even function in a run heavy offense?

He may not be able to. I say cue Brock Osweiler if that’s the case.

Manning’s greatness may hinge on the pass heavy offense he’s relied on over the years. The Dan Fouts, Dan Marino pass, pass, pass offense. You know, the kind that doesn’t really win Super Bowls. He may need to constantly pass to get in a rhythm. This could be very bad.

Or he could adapt over an entire offseason, the Broncos could draft a great running back and P.P. may even root for them since I have someone on the offense to watch besides “Omaha.”

Anyone else sick of the commercials?

Somewhere, Peter Tebow is raising a Mojito and laughing.

Karma Elway, Karma…

 

 

P.P. Dublinski’s 2012 Denver Broncos Manifesto

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

Last year during training camp I told you people that the Kyle Orton led Broncos would fall flat on their faces. I predicted a 6 – 10 season with Kyle Orton and an 8 – 8 record with Tim Tebow. Two more wins for the kid due to his dynamic playmaking ability.

What were most of them saying, eh? “Career year” for Kyle Orton. Brandon Lloyd to the Pro Bowl. 10-6 perhaps 11-5 even.

Some joke that was.

Remember how the Denver starters looked in the preseason last year? Pretty damn good actually. Remember Orton marching the ball down on the Cowboys and beating up Buffalo?

Big whoop. I saw right through it for many reasons I outlined early last year.

Last season the Denver Broncos 21st ranked defense played some opportunistic football getting turnovers at key moments. The Broncos managed to pull off some wild wins with the kid at the helm and their utilization of the spread option offense that turned thirty something power running back Willis McGahee into a star. We led the league in rushing and managed to make the playoffs and even beat the Steelers before getting trounced by a more Superbowl ready New England team.

I don’t know about you, but I liked last season. I liked what we started doing. We ran the football like wildfire, we played defense and threw game breaking touchdown passes at opportune moments. We did all this with a highly mediocre team.

Going into 2012 I was optimistic about the Broncos shoring up the defensive line, drafting a great young running back and finding some type of speedy threat at wide receiver. Older knee injury-ridden Willis McGahee was rejuvenated in our offense, can you imagine what a Doug Brown would have done? Offensive line help would not have been bad either. Perhaps we’d draft or acquire a middle linebacker on top of all this.

If we did all this, we could have done what we did last year but do it even better this year. Instead, Big Daddy Elway did what he was planning to do all along: Jettison the kid at all costs. Pocket passing at all costs. Instead of building a template to counter a New England or New Orleans or Green Bay with great defense and an unheard of rushing attack, this team with many needs we will try to become them.

Chickens Come Home to Roost: Tebow Named Broncos Starter

You wonder why Mark Schlereth, Tom Jackson and Shannon Sharpe were all so smug when they said “Tebow won’t even be playing in the league next year.” I guess they were all present for Elway’s conference call early in the season when he said the kid was a joke.

How pathetic. Seriously, even a Stephen A. Smith understands the kid’s football ability even if he doesn’t think he can throw the football. This talk of “not even playing in the league” is BS in its purest form. It’s personal with these guys, as the wins piled up they started to look silly.

Tom Jackson recently stated how elated the Broncos organization is since they got rid of the kid and landed Manning. Jackson couldn’t believe the tweets Big Daddy Elway was getting in response to his criticism of the young QB last season. I think Big Daddy Elway deserved every one of those tweets for acting unprofessional in the extreme. What VP criticizes their starting quarterback week in and week out? If he was smart he would have simply shut up and traded the kid in the offseason. Instead, he blurted a bunch of crap weekly and probably told all his cronies in the media to do the same. Remember Shannon Sharpe’s interview with Tebow on CBS late last year? It was like an inquisition. I’ll never forget the look on Tom Jackson’s face on Prime Time each time the Broncos won with the kid at the helm. Tommy looked as if he just ate a sour fart.

Say what you want, but that kid did some pretty good things last year despite the pressure of an unbelieving coach, an unbelieving VP and some jealous ungrateful players.

I am not impressed with the signing of Peyton Manning. Nothing personal. I know he cannot help that he is an “Aw shucks” yokel with a strangely shaped head, but really nothing personal there. I just don’t think its going to work. Renting another team’s Hall of Fame QB in the twilight of their years never has. I am also sick of the Broncos jettisoning young talent to try and become some other team. We tried to be the Browns defense, we tried to be the Green Bay defense, we tried to be the Patriots west and now we’re trying to be the Colts west: Manning led offense and edge rushers and corners on defense.

What I really found funny was some of these fans though: “You’re not a real fan if you’re not on board now.”

Really?

Newsflash sea cucumbers: Peyton Manning is a Colt.

Always has been, always will be. We are renting Peyton Manning for maybe three years.

At least we, you know, drafted the other guy.

I realize why we signed corners and pass rushers and pretty much disregarded the middle of our defense. This organization believes they will be up by 14 by the first quarter of games and the defense will just have to defend against the pass. I don’t think so. I don’t think this team is ready. Maybe that will be the case in year three of the Manning experiment. That’s if we’re lucky.

This team is not Superbowl ready. I don’t care what Peter King or the odds makers at Las Vegas thinks. What a bunch of crap. This is a wild card team. The Broncos will have to be lucky in the offseason next year to be a Super Bowl contender. They should be a contender by year three if Manning keeps playing.

That said, I don’t expect anything but one AFC championship showing by the Manning led Broncos. Probably in year three and then he will retire. I’m not that interested in Peyton Manning. I’m not that interested in this Broncos team this year. Renting someone else’s Hall of Fame QB rarely works. I’m more interested in Brock Osweiler quite honestly. He’ll likely take over when this team is ready to contend. To be fair he doesn’t look bad. Normally a QB who is that tall usually lumbers around like a lanky stork dork but this kid has some athleticism.

I don’t care, this year I want punishment.

That’s right. Punishment.

I want this team punished. I want the VP punished. I want the coach punished. I want some of these jealous and ungrateful players punished. Number 23, I’m looking at you.

Good luck with your thousand yards this year, pal.

If any Bronco player wants to run down the highway divider in Greeley bolicky bareass with a bunch of hoes on each side — this is the year to do it. I don’t care this season. If you get pissed off go grab a Gatorade jug or the ball boy and throw them out into the field. Get ejected. Make things interesting if you want.

This season I want punishment. For one whole season. I want this team humbled.

The Curse of P.P. Dublinski starts today, Sunday September 9, 2012. Oh yeah.

You know that goober Pat something on the 700 club? If you’ve never seen it I can fill you in. I saw it once. It’s about 50 minutes of conservative Christian news and the last ten minutes this old doofus trots out some old broad and they become a conduit to God to start healing — I mean they start preying on old and sick people acting as if they are a channel to God’s healing. Well, I’m here to say that old doofus did get something right this year when he said “God will punish the Denver Broncos.

Oh yeah. The 700 club curse alright. My curse will be just as potent.

I believe the Broncos are an 8-8 team this season. They may not even make the playoffs and yet you have these goobers claiming the Broncos will have a better record than the Elway/Davis years? Some joke that is.

You seen our offensive line? Nothing has changed there besides Kuper being injured. Our defensive line is one injury away from abysmal. You seen all the big name players up the middle of our defense? Didn’t think so. Thomas and Decker are still unproven commodities with potential. They haven’t even made it through a season together without significant injury, nor have the duo of Miller and Dumervil.

The Broncos have a bear of a schedule and many teams they face will run right up the middle of the Denver defense no problem.

This team is a couple injuries away from a 7-9 disaster quite frankly. I’d say they could go 9-7 at best. At best.

But no matter. I want this team to feel the pain this year. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will the Broncos become Super Bowl bound simply with Big Daddy Elway renting a new quarterback.

 

 

Well there goes Numby at the Post spouting off again with something utterly stupid. Just when you think he’ll start making a little sense he reverts to his peckered old foolish ways.

Numby claims McDaniels needs to win four out of the last five games–perhaps all five–to remain head coach of the Broncos.

Numbnuts Woody Paige

Mission Impossible.

This team? You’re kidding right? This team is gonna waltz into Arrowhead, into the Black Hole, this team is gonna whoop the Chargers?

This team is going to magically generate a pass rush and win out?

This team is finally going to play with consistency?

No way, I believe we’ll win two more games tops. If Numby has good information–which he usually doesn’t–and if this somehow comes from the horse’s mouth then kiss Josh Mcdaniels goodbye.

I believe Bowlen meant what he said about McDaniels returning next year and I bet he just backtracked a bit to keep the players fighting hard for their coach in the final stretch.

Win out? Win four games? Unbelievable, this Numby don’t like the coach. He don’t like McDaniels and he’s asking for the impossible. I suppose Numby thinks Elvis Dumervil is gonna rise over the pumpkin patch and bring a pass rush back to the Broncos. Numby is banking the coach’s ass on nothing short of a Christmas miracle. Oh yeah I bet the Broncos will be out there blazing great guns to get Orton a spot in the Pro Bowl–that’s if one of the many AFC quarterbacks with stats and a winning record defers. Like I said I don’t want to win another game. I want that high draft pick baby, but boy oh boy wouldn’t it be something if the Broncos shot up to 7 and 9 like in recent years, missed the playoffs again and missed out on drafting that superstar defensive lineman again? Oh Ho-Ho a Festivus miracle, the Broncos are a “respectable” 7 and 9! Excuse me for not pissing myself with excitement.

Then Numby brings up the “Spygate II” nonsense as if it’s some big deal, some big turning point. What a joke.

Earth to Numby: Quit being a weenie.

mark schlereth punkAnd earth to Mark Schlereth: Quit being a punk on this one. That’s right Schlereth, a punk. Spouting off about the “integrity of the game.” Oh yeah I bet the Broncos were just a bunch of Altar Boys during the Schlereth era. Oh yeah, let’s see: multiple salary cap violations, shady deals with players to stay under the cap, a mysterious ” slick substance ”¬† on the Broncos offensive linemen… not to mention other substances… Oh yeah they were just a bunch of Boy Scouts weren’t they? This “spygate two” nonsense is a steaming pile of crap; it’s a non issue and the only bad thing to come out of it is the fact that McDaniels has an absolute rat on his coaching staff. Anyone with their panties in a bunch over this is a weenie as far as I’m concerned–get over it.

The only real issue from it all is some loser rat that needs to get marched out of Dove Valley and kicked right in the ass for good measure. Someone ought to kick this guy right in the ass after he spilled his guts to the McDaniels haters and all around degenerates Jay Glazer and Michael Silver. They are degenerates with a capital D and I bet they both smell.

This talk of John Elway “saving the franchise” is downright corny. What a bunch of cornball nonsense. Fine, he can get a job with the Broncos, but what matters most is the coaches, the system and the players. Ol’ Elway brings a little inspiration to the table but it’s not like the seas are gonna part if he becomes a Broncos executive.

I am reality, I speak in truths!

I tell the truth, and I admit when I’m wrong. I own up to my mistake of picking the Broncos to go 10 and 6 this year. However, I am most often correct and my profundity; the fruits of of my supreme thinkery enchants all minds both on and off the page.

I said we’d get rid of Jay “Huckdort” Cutler and that he don’t look right and he don’t protect the ball.

I said Brandon Marshall ain’t coming back this season and his departure won’t matter–others will take his place and we’ll draft receivers.

I said Tebow would be running this year, more than he passes– and I hope I end up wrong on that one.

I hope I’m wrong there. I’ve had enough of Cuckoo Man folding with the game on the line. Yeah, he’s played better than he ever has this season, overall that is. But he hasn’t been clutch and this offense absolutely goes to sleep for quarters at a time. Screw the stats, look at the win/loss ratio… look at the points scored per game. All these people claiming Orton’s definitely the starter next season: he probably is, but I want a real quarterback competition. Plus, I want to see what we have in this Tebow, I want to see what he flashes–we may be sitting on a franchise QB come this draft. Won’t that be nice while we sit around with our thumbs up our asses waiting ” three years ” on someone who can maybe, possibly be a starter.

I said Josh McDaniels is a genius who will purge the Broncos of me first prima donna losers and rule with an iron fist.

The jury’s still out on that genius one. He certainly purged the prima donnas. He certainly rules with an iron fist.

Josh McDaniels Peewee Herman

I still hold out hope for McDaniels. I do, I think this team just needs a few more pieces of the puzzle. It starts with a healthy Dumervil coming back and acquiring another defensive lineman or outside linebacker who is a pass rushing threat. Someone with talent that you have to worry about on that line. Who’s our front three now, eh? Pretty unspectacular. One is an aging All Pro in the wane of his career, the other two stop the run–sometimes. Maybe another o-lineman, linebacker, safety and a big bruising change of pace running back.

The Denver Broncos have been mediocre for years–even the 2006 AFC Championship run was a bit of a fluke. Shanahan drew up that one bootleg play, but once defenses started blitzing the outside edges of our offensive line, that play we ran ad nauseum crashed and burned and we never recovered.

We’ve been mediocre for years and we needed a new direction. Two years after a mediocre team switches its direction 180 degrees is not enough time.

Did I mention it’s nice that I don’t have to share this site lately? My countenance will not be besmirched by a complete homer who doesn’t even make sense half the time.

Two years isn’t enough to retool. I think we’ll give him one more year, one more draft–hell we have a first rounder and two seconds–we’ll get a few more pieces of the puzzle from the draft and free agency. If that doesn’t work then fine, you can axe him. If we’re not winning next season then you can axe him during the middle of the season too for all I care.

People try and put a positive spin on this team lately, “well they fought hard,” “well they only lost by X amount of points.”

Fighting hard shouldn’t matter. They should always fight hard. Losing at home is trash. The real rub of the Raiders game? They did that to us at home on our turf, the same with the Rams–no matter the score.

I tell the truth, I tell it like it is. That Limbaugh told the truth on ESPN, he told the truth and he got fired. I remember the articles: McNabb is the next Joe Montana–before he even managed to do much of anything. McNabb was a good player, not great. I predict he’ll be out of the league in about two years. If Tom Jackson said McNabb was overrated and the media was puffing him up, he could have gotten away with it. But oh no, and isn’t that something how it took four days before any controversy brewed over that opinion? I don’t care what you think of Limbaugh and his politics, he told the truth just like Bobby Knight told the truth and they couldn’t take it and they wrongfully ran them out of there.

Cuckoo Man Orton

Cuckoo Man Orton

I am the truth and the Broncos suck this year. Plain and simple. Key injuries, rookies on the o-line and woeful inconsistency. Excuse me for wanting a sucky record over a mediocre one. A mediocre one that takes us out of the top ten in the draft. Yeah that’s great. I ain’t buying the “win four games or the coach is done” nonsense either. The fans ain’t got no say in it either–or they shouldn’t. This talk of the fans dictating the future of the Broncos–what a bunch of BS. Bowlen’s gonna count seats in the final two home games–what a load. If you want them filled Pat, make sure the coach puts Tebow in. Otherwise it’s the Cuckoo Man and Diaper man show in Denver. Come see Cuckoo Man and the magical disappearing offense, followed by door number two: Wink Martindale’s pathetic pass rush giving up the obligatory 40 yard play at the worst possible moment. Why don’t we do some more of those three man rushes, eh? How about rushing only two? That’s surely a recipe for success.

Ultimately, it’s time for this organization to reap a high pick on defense dammit–a Richard Seymour, a Julius Peppers or a Ndamukong Suh–that’s the ticket.

Oh, and start the kid, sooner rather than later.
