  1. Personal preference, but I’d rather we go O-line earlier. If we want Lock to succeed, we need at least 1-2 *immidiate* starting caliber linemen or he won’t survive the season. But those are some damn skilled players on that list; I wouldn’t be upset per se.

    Also just a side note: anyone else think Emanuel Sanders gave up on that deep route a little early? Yeah the ball was overthrown, and he prob wasn’t gonna get to it anyway. But you’re talking about the game winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. I think if I’m Kyle Shanahan, I’ve got a little bit of a problem with that.

    That’s twice now that Kyle Shanahan has taken his foot off another team’s throat in the Super Bowl. You’d think he’d learn at some point.

    Lol how do you manage to make it all the way to the NFL without learning to turn and look for the football as a CB? Drives me nuts when I see players make that mistake. I would have been running till I puked for that in practice if I’d done that in high school.
  5. How good was Atwater

    And even then, they're only going off of INT's and PD; Atwater was a box safety. He AVERAGED 132 tackles per season over his first 7 seasons. And through that stretch, he had 6 pro-bowl appearances and 2 all-pro nods. Name another safety in NFL history who can claim those kind of tackle numbers. Polamalu certainly can't. Neither can Dawkins, Reed or Lott. Atwater's only knock is longevity, as he only played for 10 seasons. But when you rack up nearly 1200 bone crunching tackles in those 10 years, it tends to wear your body down a little faster. The people over at PFRA are either stupid, or just being homers.

    I'm getting a little irritated watching the Nuggets continue to lose to sub-500 teams. 7 of their 16 losses this year have been to teams with a losing record. I'm sorry, but when you can march into Milwaukee and beat the Bucks at home, there's no excuse to lose to the likes of the Pistons and Cavaliers. Also, I heard something about a Superbowl today.
  7. Team Building the FUTURE is now!

    Yeah, a guy can make an argument either way in regards to Scangs' prowess as an OC. But there is little debate when it comes to his ability to coach up a quarterback. Lock went from looking completely overwhelmed in the pre-season to a guy who looks like a first round draft pick. From an offensive X's and O'x standpoint, bringing in Shurmur was a solid move. But from a developmental point of view for Lock, I'm not 100% sold. Time will tell on that one; although Shurmur has a pretty impressive resume with QB development as well.

    https://predominantlyorange.com/2020/01/24/broncos-buzz-lightyear-learn-sheriff/ I really like this. I've always said, once a Bronco, always a Bronco. Players never truly leave this team, and I think its great that PFM still views himself as one of us. He always seems eager to help out when he can.
  9. Jimmy Johnson vs. Mike Shanahan

    I’ve heard a lot of whispers of this over the years; that after Bowlen’s mental acuity began to decline, he was manipulated into firing Shanahan. Talk about a truly scummy move.
  10. Jimmy Johnson vs. Mike Shanahan

    Mike Shanahan in a nutshell: As HC (1995-1998) Regular season record: 47-17 (.734) Post season record: 7-1 (.875) with two Super Bowls. As HC/VP of football ops (1999-2008, 2010-2013) Regular season record: 115-109(.563) Post season record: 1-5 (.166) With zero Super Bowls. Shanny was the best X’s and O’s coach I’ve ever seen and he routinely schooled Belichick throughout his career. But he couldn’t build a team to save his life. He was also kind of a jerk that several players mentioned not liking to play for. And that’s all fine and dandy until the losing starts. In my mind, had he just stuck to coaching, he would have won at least 1-2 more Superbowls here and would easily be in the top 5 HC of all time discussion. Sometimes you gotta be willing to spot your weaknesses more than your strengths.
  11. Broncos fire OC Rich Scangarello

    Because of how quickly this all happened, I think the Broncos probably *were* planning on keeping Scangs. But the minute Shurmur got fired, I think they said Ah ha! Perfect chance to upgrade. So they pulled the trigger. And while Shurmur may be an upgrade in the short term, I’ve also seen glimpses of what Scangs’ offense can do when it’s firing on all cylinders.. I think we’re walking away from an awful lot of potential there. Time will tell I suppose.

    I’ve never actually seen that hit at full speed before. NFL films always shows it in a slowed down format. Wow..

    Over 500 yards of offense with only 12 points to show for it. That was the most brilliant excecution of “bend but don’t break” Defense I’ve ever seen. Tennessee put on a clinic in that game. Also shows how devastating turnovers can be to an offense.

    Of all the players who have been snubbed from the HOF, Steve Atwater to me is easily the most insulting. He literally averaged 125 tackles per season over the first 8 seasons of his career. 8 pro bowls. 2 Super Bowl rings. Unbelievable post season performances. Zero doubt in my mind; if he had played for the Packers, 49ers, or Bears, he would have been a first ballot selection. If he doesn’t get in this year, I’m gonna be pissed.
  15. A couple of the Oakland guys (one looked like a linebacker) jumped on him after the play was over. They were all kind of laying on the ground and he got dog piled. Bolles got up and kind of one hand shoved him. Considering how chippy the game was, I was kind of surprised it drew a flag. BUT: given the situation, he should have known better.
