Knowshon Moreno Out 3 Weeks

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Well we dodged a bullet there. Buckhalter projected to be out 1 week. I heard Tebow’s been holding on to the ball and running with it in pass practice drills. Coach probably told him to, so he can get a feel for when he does it in live action. After all, we all know–or should know–he’ll be running more than he passes.

Reviewing Knowshon Moreno and Robert Ayers

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

First, Knowshon Moreno had a good, not great rookie campaign.

What you need from rookies is for them to flashes, flashes of brilliance. Through these flashes, they show you that maybe they can play in this league.

For the most part, John Elway looked like a turd in his rookie season. Lining up under the damn guard, but John Elway also showed flashes of brilliance a times.

How about Jarvis Moss. I saw nothing from Moss, I saw no moves that perhaps he could work with — I saw nothing. I felt he brought nothing to the table when I first seen him out there and my opinion didn’t change his second year.

I wasn’t ready to call him a bust his first year, after all, rookie classes can’t be completely and accurately judged in one year.

Knowshon Moreno Broncos

Knowshon Moreno

Knowshon Moreno showed me the requisite flashes. The kid’s got moves, he’s got talent, and I should emphasize kid.  You seen him on the sidelines, eh? He looks like a damn boy, no offense. He has room to grow, I see him putting on another ten pounds of muscle in the next couple years. He blocks, he catches brilliantly out of the backfield and McDaniels knew he was getting a good running back that will fit the system to a T.

I expect an average of 1300 yards out of Moreno with 500 or so yards catching out of the backfield in the coming seasons. He’s a leader, he’s got good character and his game will improve greatly with the revision of our poor offensive line interior, which is something that absolutely killed us. This  complete and utter nonsense that “Moreno couldn’t find the holes” from our wonderful offensive line interior is being floated by a guy who I’m convinced doesn’t even watch the games. Same guy who said the Broncos front seven are a bunch of pass rushers. We have one pass rusher. And furthermore, Jerome Bettis would have struggled running behind our interior line.

Moreno is the least of our worries.

Robert Ayers Broncos

Robert Ayers

Robert Ayers, I fully believe Robert Ayers will be a starting linebacker for us. A solid, starting caliber linebacker. He doesn’t have to be a 13 sack guy, he may never be that. If he does that someday, fine, but we don’t need him to be that. I saw what I needed to see out of Robert Ayers, especially as the season went on. He showed flashes of being able to play well in this league, I saw good juke moves and good edge rushing technique and saw more improvement from him as the year went on. Although he didn’t get a sack he was getting closer, getting pressures, laying out McNabb in that Eagles game. When ten guys on our defense couldn’t tackle Jamaal Charles, Ayers picked him up and planted his ass. Something to be said about that. I’m not going to sit here and say Ayers is the best thing since sliced bread. Jarvis Moss showed me nothing. Robert Ayers showed me flashes of ability, and I expect he’ll be a solid linebacker for us. I said we needed another guy on that defensive front to get us 7-8 sacks. Robert Ayers can be that guy. Also, Mario Haggan did not play too badly for us — tough spot coming in as a rookie and having to battle it out with a veteran who is playing well and named a captain to boot.

You can say I’m looking through orange and blue tinted glasses all you want. I know talent and I ain’t no stoop. We’ll see who the damn geniuses are. If we pick a guy that sucks I’ll be all over his ass, when appropriate. Certainly not after someone’s first damn rookie season. Even a Moss you wait til the second year at least to see what the hell is going on. I ain’t no damn microwave gotta have it now generation sea cucumber, led by some weak, fickle Numbnut at the Post.

One guy that concerns me is Alphonso Smith. But I know that generally, corners have it rougher than most their first year. Hell, look at Champ Bailey’s first year with us in a new system. Didn’t start off pretty. Smith showed flashes in preseason, and then he had some good plays in the early games. Making a Bailey-esque move to swat and kill a 3rd and 10 pass in that Cincinnati game. Problem is, as the year went on he certainly got demoted. Still not going to say he’s a bust, that would be moronic to say after one rookie season. But I’m not as confident about him right now, as I am about Moreno and Ayers. And McBath for that matter, that kid’s a player.

Numbnuts Strokes His Own Ego

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

Numbnuts Woody Paige

We do ask tough questions. I wish you had sat next to me at the final two press conferences McDaniels had — after the last game and the next day. As a radio guy said to me: “Man, you had the guts to ask the questions the rest of us wanted to.”

Oh is that so Numby, eh? Big man Numbnuts mouthed off to the coach at a press conference. I’d like to meet this “radio guy.” He’s probably some young intern that don’t know any better. You got to be two turds in a paper bag short of running around I-95 bolicky bare-ass in January to look up to Numbnuts at the Denver Post. I’d like to know who this radio guy is, he’s liable to do just about anything if he’s that bad off. I’d like to know who he is, because if I see him on the side of the highway with a flat, I ain’t stopping and that’s for damn sure. You got to be seriously intellectually light to look up to Numbnuts at the Post as some sort of a genius. After his track record of being perennially wrong? After his track record of shifting gears on a dime? I’m convinced some people got short memories — I don’t.

My point is, T-Bone Tebow is cut from the same cloth. He’s smart, tough, a good passer, a great leader, a winner. I think he’d fit perfectly in the McDaniels system — a shotgun quarterback, throwing the short passes, running as a wildcatter and occasionally throwing deep. And he has a great football mind.

But the Broncos won’t draft him. Most teams will stay away because he’s not what the scouts want. Kordell Stewart proved people wrong and became the original Slash.

Here’s another one of Numby’s genius ideas. Yeah, lets draft a glorified H-back with the tenth or eleventh pick in the draft, hell a second rounder would be too much for Tebow. That Tebow ain’t no NFL QB, he is a possible Chris Cooley, if that.

Josh McDaniels

Bowlen "won" with Reeves, he won with Shanahan, he's gonna win with the kid

Yeah that’s right Mcdaniels and the Broncos organization ain’t gonna listen to your “genius” there Numby. Not after you said Ryan Clady wasn’t all that. Not after predicting 4 and 12, 11 and 5 the year before ( for someone who was supposedly “vocal” about getting rid of Shanahan that year, that was an awfully optimistic outlook at the beginning of the season, that’s a tactic of a spineless, weak, wave-riding sea cucumber )

Yeah they ain’t gonna listen when ol’ Numby calls for Chris Simms to start. He’s obviously the better quarterback. Oh and Mike Nolan? I suppose he was the first big mistake of the McDaniels era according to Numby.  Numby said McDaniels was the golden boy and eveything he did was correct. Now Numby’s saying the best coach just left town. Way to stick by your guns eh Numby?

I see those losers at the Post piling on Moreno, what a joke that is. Klis asked the wrong guy on that offensive line about our o-line woes. Clady had nothing to do with it. I wonder if these Moreno bashers even realize they’re setting themselves up for failure. I suppose they take Numbnuts over there seriously, they must feel he’s the resident genius, the real pulse of Broncos information. I suppose Moreno just didn’t find the holes, what a laugh that is. But after all the crazy uncle has dinner with Shanahan, so he knows what the hell is up. All these goobers coming out of the woodwork with their cute lines “NoGain Moreno,” “Noyards” etc. You morons, degenerates and garden variety ignoramuses are going to have egg on your face, but that’s just fine, cause all of a sudden you won’t say nothing. You’ll just quietly blend back in with the sea cucumbers when this kid runs for 1,300 yards and catches for 600. Which is reasonable based on the flashes he showed, his ability to catch the ball brilliantly not to mention his professionalism and leadership.

You know what Shonn Greene has that Moreno doesn’t? Two guards and a center that can run block. You see what the Jets did to that Chargers defensive front? Take note, because the Broncos don’t got that. We don’t have that, the fact that we don’t killed us, and new interior linemen is exactly what we need. Probably the biggest need of this offseason is a new center and a guard, maybe two guards.

But good, I hope you people discount this Moreno left and right. Hopefully I’ll find some losers that will trade away his best rookie cards at a hell of a discount.

Guess what, Broncos? If Ryan had come to Denver, he would have kept the offensive staff intact, would have kept Cutler and would have concentrated on the defensive side of the ball. If the Broncos had hired Ryan, they would have been in the playoffs. But that horse has left the Broncos’ barn.

If this, if that. Why must I pick up a Denver paper and hear a bunch of nonsense about garbage that will never happen?

Numby was all about McDaniels when he anointed him the golden boy mid-season. Proudly throwing out stats how McDaniels was a winner compared to all the other first year coaches. I’m telling you we got a taste of the McDaniels regime in those first six games. Mark my words Josh McDaniels is a winner, he has the mark of a winner. He will be around a long, long time coaching the Broncos.

Jay "Huckdort" Cutler

Jay "Huckdort" Cutler

Suppose we did keep the offense intact. We’d have an un-coach-able pick throwing gooned out doofus at quarterback. We’d probably be trying to trade Cutler all over again. I’m glad we did when the griddle was hot. We got great value when the world called Huckdort a shining example of a Pro Bowler. All along I knew he was a poor man’s Favre. That Hucky is tarnished baby, he is tarnished with them picks big time. Unbelievable. And they are killers. Always seems to happen to Hucky at the worst possible time you can imagine too. He just loves them dorts, I can’t see him ever getting over his addiction to dorting and dorting heavy baby. I heard something funny while passing by a Chicago paper. I heard they ain’t looking for any upgrades at wide receiver. And I thought we had a doofus columnist at the Denver Post. What a laugh riot that one was. I think these arrogant, lazy journalist types are an epidemic. They are what’s killing these newspapers.

Second, we’d be trading Marshall away now regardless. This upcoming trade or release has zero to do with Huckdort not being here. It has zero to do with Huckdort and everything to do with Brandon Marshall. We can’t get rid of him fast enough as far as I’m concerned. I notice a bunch of geniuses coming out of the woodwork saying we ought to get a first rounder, a third rounder and even a player in return for Marshall.

These people remind me of the poor souls that put Zhu Zhu pets up for three hundred dollars a pop on auction in December. People are stupid, but nobody’s paying that much. Those damn things sat on the shelf and the poor saps ended up having to cover the auction costs at the end. Even garden variety misdemeanor level ignoramus buyers have a quarter of a brain left. Imagine you’re a GM in this league: you’re gonna give away a first round pick, a third round pick plus a good player and then turn around and have to pay out the ass for Brandon Marshall? On top of all that? With his team poisoning antics and list of infractions? With his overrated abilities? Part of me does solemnly hope someone is that utterly desperate and moronic.

Asking the world for Marshall could be a mistake, if we ask too much he’ll just sit and other teams will too. It’s more like we got a damaged Zhu Zhu and the holiday rush is over. Cut your losses and get what you can. I’m hoping for a first rounder at best, either that or a straight up trade for a player. I’ll tell you right now I’ll be happy in either scenario. Wherever he goes it’s just a matter of time for them to find out about the great Brandon Marshall. Might take a year, but it will just be a matter of time before the meltdown occurs in some way, shape or form.

I heard that Denver Post is filing for bankruptcy, eh? These papers are sinking and sinking fast. You got Numby over here blowing hoagies out his ass, probably sitting in the stall of some filth-ridden Taco Bell while he should be at training camp. Throwing out barbs and bombs left and right at our team, trying to sharpshoot our coach left and right like that gooned out loser Ron Borges.

They ought to make me in charge of that newsroom. I’d bring it to damn greatness. I’d fire Numbnuts on the first day and split his wages among two highly competent and professional bloggers in our Broncos blogosphere. At least we’d have people in there that are committed, competent, thorough and who like the team. Instead of someone’s crazy uncle Numby that has a whiny personal vendetta against the coach. That Numby ought to be fired for conduct detrimental to the team.

Randy "Macho Man" Savage

Randy Savage

Then I’d get Randy “Macho Man” Savage out of retirement. The genius of the Macho Man was cut off from the public’s eye much too early. You people think I’m messing around, eh? I’d grab a HD camera and cruise around Colorado with him and a few babes. We’d go around busting up cars and ruining some of the tv production sets for some of these lame local advertisements. We’d make them film it and run it. Then we’d ride around throwing produce and bottles while verbally pressuring any fans we saw wearing other teams apparel, we’d pressure them into committing to the Broncos instead. You kidding me? That’s some quality entertainment with limitless potential. I came up with that in five seconds. No limit to what I could do there. Think about that next time you slog through one of Numby’s new turdlets of wisdom.

Broncos Could Draft Running Back in Later Rounds

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Frank Schwab over at the Colorado Gazette thinks the Broncos ought to target a running back in the mid to late rounds.

Like I responded, I believe the same thing, we need a good young slugger to compliment Moreno. I don’t believe our problem last year was Knowshon Moreno, as some people want to dub him a bust  after one season. Jerome Bettis in his prime would have trouble getting one yard running up the middle for the Broncos in 2009. This nonsense that Moreno “just didn’t find the holes,” being floated out there is a joke. He’s a player, he’ll improve and more importantly our offensive line, the interior of that line must improve. Moreno showed flashes of greatness, he’s got moves, he catches brilliantly, he’ll be a player for us for years to come. I am glad he’s playing for us and not the Chargers where he would  kill us for years catching those dinks from Philip Rivers.

One of my wishes for 2010 is a good young slugger to compliment Moreno, maybe some guy in the mid rounds. 6’1 230 who can just hold on to that football and grind out hard yardage. I’m not wild about having two finesse backs splitting the majority of the carries. My hope is Moreno gets the majority of the carries, gets spelled by Buckhalter, and we get a new young tough guy for grinding the short yards. Hillis, I don’t know what the hell is up with him, I think he said something bad about the coach’s wife and there you have it, he’s done.  He’ll probably be a Redskin in 2010.

The Huckdort Counter Lives On…

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

My buddy Tyrone with his limitless skill just informed me that the Huckdort Counter has been correctly updated to 26 dorts and cryogenically sealed to stand the test of time.

I know some of you people may have been on the verge of tears to see it go away, but it will stay in its very own page for all to see. That reminds me, wasn’t Huckdort the final piece up there in Chicago? Didn’t they have a running game up there last year? Didn’t they have a defense up there too? I heard them Bears were on their way to the Super Bowl once they got Huckdort.

Seems Hucky’s big arm ain’t doing much for that running game is it? Blaming our running woes on Moreno and Orton… what a joke. I told you people I will eat my hat if we ain’t in the playoffs next year. I’ll get the knife and fork ready if we don’t have a new starting guard and center. I hear people talking up that Kuper. I’m not impressed. I don’t care what he’s done in the past, not impressed at all when you get picked up and thrown like a ragdoll.

My next truly awe inspiring posting will be an epic Treatise on Kyle Orton.
