View Full Version : Denver providing bulletin board material for the Brownies???

First of all, I'm not by any means suggesting that Denver should be concerned with Cleveland. This is a game Denver should win in a blow-out!!
However, as the old NFL adage goes, I've always thought it best to 'let sleeping dogs lie'.
A quote from Broncos safety Billy Jenkins:
"''We're supposed to win every game, really, but especially against sub-.500 teams,'' Denver safety Billy Jenkins said. ``If we plan on being the team we're capable of being, we definitely have to beat the losing teams.''"
While I agree completely with what he said, I'm not sure I would have used the words "losing team" with a reporter. But like I said before, it doesn't really matter considering who they're playing.<BR>

No biggie... he's right, if you are a team that is .500 or better OR if you're a team that *should* be .500 or better and you're playing a bad team like Cleveland, then YES, you're supposed to beat them.
Denver is 3-3, with 173 PF and 137 PA
Cleveland is 2-4, with 85 PF and 131 PA
So, looking at that and considering the game is in Denver ... Denver *should* win.
Denver will score 30+ points on Cleveland, and Cleveland could score 20 - 23, unless they get down early and allows Denver's defense to frustrate them into making stupid penalties and turnovers.
Cleveland has a somewhat decent offense right now. If Travis Prentice gets going early, gaining great yardage and gives Couch time to work, then Denver could have their work cut out for them.
However, I see Denver winning this 34-20.

Mile High Mania -
What the #@$% are your saying...They 'should' win. Of course they are going to win. You don't even have complete faith when Broncos are playing a team like that. Are you sure you're a fan?

They *should* have won vs. KC, they *should* have won vs. New England. They didn't. Brad is very realistic, not the blind homerism that plagues the other Denver faithful on this board. He's careful with his words for very good reason and it's benefited him in the long run. Might I humbly suggest the adoption of a similar strategy for fans such as yourself?

Whoever you are ... leave me alone. You are pathetic. You serve no purpose on this BB or in life. You disgrace true orange and blue Bronco fans around the world.
Pull your head out of your a$$, create a well thought out statement, compose it nicely and in a manner which might prompt a thought provoking discussion for a change.
I'm not implying you have to be *nice* to everyone on the BB, but you and a few others add nothing to the value of the topics around here.

She is just in love with Elway. Give her a break... http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif Sorry sweetie, he plays for a different team now. By the way, MHM, very astute and accurate observations, I am impressed with your knowledge. http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

No worries ... VanceChic is just a freak.
Playing in two fantasy football leagues make you learn very quickly about what's going on with damn near every team.

"...not the blind homerism that plagues the other Denver faithful on this board."
I love this type of rhetoric. Its as if the Chief fans are a bunch of Walter Cronkites when it comes to Elvis and the gang.
Etch it in stone, Denver will win the AFC West, which means, by obvious extension, that they'll finish above the 8-8 Chefs.

You had better hope that the Broncos win the AFC West, 'cause KCTitus has no doubt saved this bit of "homerism" and will paste the crap out of you should your fearless prediction prove less than accurate [as do most of your predictions on the BB, as Fate would have it].
has to concede the possibility, with that Charmin schedule.<BR>

One needs to look no further than the Denver/KC game to get an idea of the other 'stone carvings' of our very own Donkey Drew:
On the keys to the Den/KC game:
You're underestimating Denver's D. - Would that be the one that gave up a 10 pt lead in the 4th quarter?
* Denver has two 1,000 yard receivers in Smith and McCaffry. SlyMo has a lot of work to do to get mentioned in the same breath. Has Gonzo done diddly squat this year? - Gonzo after being quiet the first 3 weeks put up a buck 27 on your vaunted D. The KC receivers combined for 2 TD's, the vaunted 1000 yd receivers combined for 1 TD.
* You're underestimating Denver's O. - would this be the same offense that failed to score three times inside the 5 yd line of the Chiefs?
. Denver's D is, at the very least, adequet to win against virtually anybody. - We wont bring up the NE game.
Just a sample from the ol' db...25 entries of sound 'stone carvings' from the master. <P>

Oh, I know he'll be pasting away. The question is, will he have the 'nads to print my prophecy when it becomes reality? <P>
10-10-2000, 02:24 PM
You are The Man.
expects to have the crap pasted out of himself one fine day.

I am personally shocked at how bad the Denver D really is. However, they were pretty bad early in each of the previous three seasons and steadily improved. Let's see the whole painting before we judge the work.
As for the offense, KC hardly held them in check. You're fortunate that Griese didn't play and that the Broncos happened to make their biggest mistakes at the worst possible moments. The O will finish top five.
I'm glad y'all only won by a point. You'd be insufferable if you had actually outplayed Denver and kicked their butts.
10-10-2000, 02:27 PM
Down, boy. Don't make us go "scoreboard" on your skinny butt.
showing exemplary restraint.
10-10-2000, 02:34 PM
I'm actually a little pudgy-- puttin' on my winter coat.
I hope the Chiefs beat the Raiduhs.
10-10-2000, 02:40 PM
Drew: A couple of things...
First, I gave you a HUGE pass and didnt include you in my call out to BroncoFan because shortly before that game you did actually 'come down to earth' and actually recognize that the Chiefs were a pro football team and could, possibly, maybe, just kinda, sorta, might give you all a game.
Second, as far as #11 goes, that's why you should be keeping your own stuff as well as the smack of your rivals. Most of your older stuff from the KC.com BB is long gone, I have it at my disposal to use if necessary. Dont think for a moment I would hand you a loaded gun. Of course tooting your own horn is pretty pathetic, but I would expect nothing less. :P
10-10-2000, 02:41 PM
So am I and so do I.
finding common ground with the Donkey Homer.<BR>
10-10-2000, 02:59 PM
Don't worry, I'm not likely to toot my own horn. I'm more likely to be around if the Broncos are struggling than if they are winning. When they're rolling like they can, they don't need stuck up for.
Plus, when it comes to football, I am impulsive and lack objectivity. Its why I never ever bet on the game-- I enjoy every aspect too much to be impartial. For example, I refuse to pick the Raiduhs or Jags to win games in my Pick'em pool, because I'd rather finish last than acknowledge either as a respectable team. Thus, if you just continue to pay attention, there is a great likelyhood that I'll give you years of potential material. It doesn't bother me a bit to get eviserated for sticking up for my team, and it never will.
