Get Out of Denver, Baby

Bob Seger had it right.

Shit. Denver? Man I don’t like that team. The reasons are varied and multiple, but mainly it was because I lived in Colorado for 3 years, and every other radio ad, print ad, or television ad was John Elway’s car wash, John Elway’s Launromat, John Elway’s Jeep dealership, John Elway’s Chevy dealership, or John Elway’s dildo emporium and sex shop. Beyond that, you had the Rocky Mountain news posting daily updates on John Elway’s travel plans, eating habits, and bowel movement schedule.

It was enough to make one sick. Plus, their fans are annoying as hell. Orange Crush? Please. A pass rush named after a soft drink? Laaaaame. It was also more onerous because the Rockies didn’t exist yet, and the Nuggets have always been an afterthought anyway. To make things worse, the local TV stations would often pre-empt the national football games and show the Broncos on 2 separate stations! Fuckers. Many a time the 49ers would be knocked off the national schedule so 2 different local stations could show the game! Ass hats !This forced me to hunt down a bar who would show the game. Fortunately there was a bar in town called Little Annie’s whose owner was a 49er fan, so he’d show games that were pre-empted locally.

So, needless to say, I was highly disappointed that the Broncos didn’t choke that game away yesterday. The Broncos defense held Brady in check for large parts of the game, but still nearly choked it away as Peyton Manning was ineffective and largely a non-factor. Denver’s defense gave their offense a ton of field position advantage, yet couldn’t seal the game til the botched 2 point conversion. No huge love lost for Tom Brady and Belichick, but I guess I’ll take solace in Peyton manning being thoroughly embarrassed again in the biggest game.

The Carolina game? Yikes. Carson Palmer went from a shit game against Green Bay to an epic sewer dive yesterday. Any time the Cards would do something positive to even get close to making it a game, Palmer would throw into triple coverage for a pick while standing calmly in the pocket. Blehhh. Too bad, so sad.

I think Carolina wins in a runaway,  38-13

    Yeah, it’s an old Super Bowl logo. tough shit. That’s all I got.

    One thing I thought was awesome. Cam Newton threw a pass and got drilled. As he was laying on the ground, he turned and watched the scoreboard behind him to watch his pass get caught and run in for the score. He was smiling the whole time. Pretty fucking cool. Say what you will about Newton, he has a lot of fun out there.

    Carolina will crush the orange. Payton’s weak arm will fall off and be carried off by giant winged bird with huge beak. Okay I’m day dreaming …….doesn’t cost anything.

    Are you part Navajo, Nip. You have a very existential and ethereal outlook on things.

    Should be a good one.

    Peyton Manning Super Bowl…
    Can I handle one more run?
    This is it, I’m almost done.
    Need that Ring! Wade, get it done.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    He just wants to catch up to Eli. He won’t.

    So far so good with the Dubs. Up 15 at the half.

    The little I saw of him, Wentz looked good. I get a little leery of these guys that jump so far based on hype though. Now that Chip is here I have no idea how that alters the draft for Baalke. It is looking =more like Goff is the furst QB off the board, and that Paxton may be there for the taking. Another risky spread QB, but will Baalke pull the trigger on that? He’s afraid to draft WRs early after his previous disasters.

    “Peyton loses one more time”
    “Carolina eats my lunch”
    “Ow! I think I broke my neck”
    “Peyton has a noodle arm”

    Peyton doesn’t scare anyone downfield and that should help Carolina greatly knowing that. Plus Carolina has strong weapons offensively. They can run up the score as was shown in their game with the Cards. Yes Carolina will whip the Broncos, no question.

    I don’t mind that we are snagging coaches from Cleveland, I just don’t want to turn into them. There is something major dysfunctional with the Browns.

    See what happens….

    Wonder if he’s a referral from Ed O’Neill of Youngstown OH?
    He had a cup of coffee with the Steelers and, of course, was a star at Polk High 😀

    Maybe the DeBartolo’s are well connected via Al Bundy?

    For the Super Bowl…….. if you’re living in the SF Bay Area ……any of you guys renting out your houses?

    • NJ49er says:

      You should – Prices out the whazzoo I see – Take a vacation and get this year’s mortgage paid 😀

    Chuck will rent out his busted ass Mobile Home if one doesn’t mind living like a Dirt Bag for the weekend.
