    I am optimistic that Brock will give them a spark. Friggin Siemian was obviously afraid he was gonna get popped in Chief's game. I don't remember seeing a pro play so scared. I think his shoulder is injured, but it doesn't matter cuz he is done...until Brock gets hurt.

    Anyway, going riding tomorrow in spite of it being the most promising game in a while. I suspect they'll have a chance, if for no other reason than Brock will play confidently and because there may be some things they do differently, so the latter may help them for a couple weeks.

    I agree with a previous comment though....I too have largely lost interest in football. I'd rather participate (i.e. ride) than spectate anyday!!

    Well....so much for my theory of them possibly having a chance. Sounds like the team has quit. I dunno whats wrong, but it doesn't seem that VJ is getting the team ready to play.

    Was a beautiful day riding at RAM!

    There was a game yesterday? I went to the range, sighted in the new 223, ran some rounds through the .40, .45 and .44 ,ag.
    Came home, got some work done. Remembered about 4 that they had the early game.

    I've been a fan for a long time and seldom miss a game. Honestly I didn't miss not watching yesterday. You think they might be trying to tank for a better draft pick?

    Just think of the draft opportunities for next year, more young inexperienced rookies :fpalm.........
    It will take a few years to dig out of this hole IMO. The coach seems/looks lost, quarterback is terrified but the defense tried in Miami :dunno

    Coach Joseph has lost the locker room. I quit watching the games and getting so emotionally invested when it appeared that the team had quit on him. How special teams coach Olivo still has a job amazes me. I spent yesterday bleeding the brakes on my Road King, checking the score periodically on my phone.

    Sadly, my wife bought us tickets to the new years eve game against the Chefs before the season started as an anniversary gift. Neither one of us is very excited for to go.

    6 - 6 is a "good" record in the AFC. :D

    How does 3-13 sound? They are done. If I were Derek Wolfe, I definitely wouldn't play another down this year if what I heard about his neck is correct.

    Did you guys hear VJ still supporting McKenzie? UN-freakin-believable!! He may be a players coach, but he seems to be faaar too soft. And the team plays like it. They try...at least on defense.

    I never watch all the games cuz I'd rather ride and the weather is often too nice to sit indoors every Sunday afternoon. One of the nice things about living in CO (or any state in the west for that matter) is most days, you can have your Sunday (riding) and at least listen to the game on the drive home and maybe be home to grab a beer and watch the tail end. I did the latter some earlier in the season, but actually haven't watched a game since the majority of the team took a knee. No huge protest on my part, but from that point forward, they have SUCKED and it ain't worth my time. My motto is: I'd rather participate (ride, etc) than spectate. Anyday.

    VJ doesn't seem to have a clue. They haven't been this bad in 50 years. Shows just how much PFM meant and did for the team.

    A truly elite QB covers a multitude of sins on offense, defense and special teams. Remember when the Colts spotted the Bears 7 on the opening kickoff but still won...with a time of possession nearly double Da Bears. That was not a good team and yet, PFM.

    I would argue as good as Brady is that Elway and Manning did far more with far less than Tommy ever has. In this league if you don't have one of the five or six QB's who are truly elite it ain't gonna happen. Take a look sometime at what QBs have won a Super Bowl since Elway retired... one? journeyman in that crowd?

    I gave up a couple of weeks ago and I am not a band wagon fan. :(

    And now finally, the fact that the Broncos suck so bad has compelled the NFL to enact their ridiculous rule of blacking out the "other" afternoon game for fear of nobody watching the home team. As a diehard philly fan: Thanks Elway, you suck! The whole country will be able to watch the best game of the week except Denver.

    Elway, at this point, is doing us a favor...
