***Official Knowmo2724 homer-2000 thread***

Very few non-bronco fans can tolerate him. he creates inane threads that are homeristic in nature (his avatar is very apropos), and nobody loves him (not even his own mother)

'face, this can be the home for all knowmo threads so we aren't treated to the bi-weekly steaming 'presents' left by the front door.

I know how you feel but you gotta' show up when you are losing if you want to show up when you are winning. Just a quick check-in to tell these grouchy bastards you aren't hiding from them.
Hang in there, we aren't out of the playoffs yet.
Its year 1 under a new HC. McKid & Co.'s first draft was solid and now we have another one coming up. That 1st rounder from Chicago is looking pretty good right now.

Hell, Knowmo didn't create this thread, so why fault him for posting all the pro-Denver stuff in this thread. I can't recall what types of threads were created by him before this thread or after... but, the creation of this thread and the "prodding" by many KC fans certainly justified his posts.

And, I think it all was done "with the spirit of having fun"... so, if anyone got bent out of shape, no biggie... it's the Internet, learn to deal with hit or continue to get frustrated.

I just know he's a young guy and I recall being a 10 foot tall and bullet-proof guy as well, but I also had Elway backing me up. And, that certainly didn't hurt... but, over time... after all the justifications that I spent hours doing with the Grieses and Plummers of the world... well, it can wear the strongest man down a bit.

They certainly surprised everyone with their start and say what you will, but you just don't luck into 6 straight wins. Luck happens with every team on a roll, it's just that over time... things caught up with them and the wheels fell off a bit down the stretch. The defense has greatly improved, but it also dropped in production during this 2-7 stretch... it's not all on the shoulders of the offense.

Exactly... if you're going to cyber-kick people in the nuts during the highs, you have to return to take the return jabs. Otherwise, you look like a smack and run type of member.

And, yes - that R1 pick from CHI looks great and while Smith hasn't played well his rookie season, I'm not as upset about losing their original R1 pick. It burns a bit, but let's see what this guy can do in Y2 and Y3... not all DBs fly high right out of the gate as rookies.

I just hope that Bowlen is ready to sign some fat contracts... he's about to make a few players very very rich, and it all starts with Brandon Marshall. I think they'd be silly not to give Orton a nice contract too. Again, say what you will... but, he's played well.

McD frustrates me with his offense... I don't think he's really used his players to the best of their abilities, but as a fan - that's always easy to say. There's a lot of talent on that team and I think some of it has been wasted thanks to the play calling, not because of what Orton can or cannot do. I've been happy with Orton, they can certainly build around him and continue winning with him.

They need some solid young playmakers on defense... Dumerville is up for big money too, right? Damn...

Show up? you kid right? That is true for almost every team above 6 wins right now. Chicago "showed up" last night and were a very good team. Are they playoff caliber? Teams are what the record says they are as Parcells once put it. Hey, the Broncos are a tipped ball in the cincy game and a dropped pass in the NE game from only having 6 wins, and the Chiefs are an overtime dropped pass and a bs roughing penalty from 5 wins. I could use this logic and say the broncos and Chiefs are about the same, but we both know they arent right now. If, and I stress if, Denver gets in, they will exit very quickly. They dont deserve to be there anyhow, if anything, Pitt does.

Oh without a doubt, it's open to any and all points and counterpoints... it's definitely not one sided.

Either way as bad as I hate to say it,they made better decisions and improved the Broncos (see I can say it right....sometimes) way better than Pisoli and Haley did the Chiefs.

Enh, based on their play... the Steelers are no more deserving than Denver. Sure, they won the H2H, but overall their records are equal.

Denver could beat NE again... and I would like to see them play CIN again as well, just to see what happens 17 weeks after the first game, both teams are vastly different.

I'm still pissed about giving that R1 for Smith and will continue to be until he proves me wrong. Going into the draft with 2 R1 would be pretty damn sweet right now.
I'm fine with keeping Orton but if an available QB is the BPA on any round of the draft we need to grab him becasue the cupboard is bare. Phil Sim's kid gives me nightmares.
You have to wonder how the veterans are going to hold up next year, guys like Weigman, Champ, etc. We have some old guys along with our young.
And lastly why the fluck won't McKid use Peyton Hillis on short yardage, goal line and change-of-pace downs? Pisses me off.

That is my #1 issue with him... Hillis has great versatility, you'd think he would be a Kevin Faulk "like" weapon in that offense.

The secondary is getting older... there's a very small window for a few of those guys.

Brandon Marshall Benched



ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Just when they finally patched things up, Brandon Marshall and Josh McDaniels are back to square one, and another reconciliation appears farfetched.
McDaniels announced Friday he's benching Marshall, his Pro Bowl wide receiver, for the team's pivotal season finale against Kansas City on Sunday.




"Our word for the week has been accountability. And we're looking to put the 45 guys on the field on Sunday that want to play together, want to help us try to win and qualify for the playoffs," McDaniels said. "... And anybody that showed any indifference to that, we'll play without them.
Marshall suggested he couldn't have played anyway after pulling his right hamstring at practice this week.
In an extraordinary half-hour at Dove Valley, McDaniels insinuated on the podium that Marshall was exaggerating the extent of his injury and was unaccountable to the team. The Pro Bowl receiver responded from his locker by noting McDaniels never played in the NFL and hinting he might be getting called out by his coach because the Broncos' season is unraveling.
Since a sizzling 6-0 start, the Broncos have gone 2-7.
They'll try to make the playoffs Sunday without their 100-catch receiver or tight end Tony Scheffler, demoted to the scout team, and maybe minus wide receiver Eddie Royal, who has a head injury.
Marshall was voted to his second straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday after becoming just the fifth wide receiver with three consecutive 100-catch seasons. He spoke Wednesday about how fulfilling it was to bounce back after a tumultuous offseason that included a rocky start to his relationship with McDaniels, who rejected trade requests and demands for a new contract. McDaniels also suspended him for nine days during training camp for insubordination at practice.
Minutes later, Marshall was clutching his right hamstring after pulling up lame on a route and hopping to the sideline.
Marshall said an MRI showed no structural damage, "but when you try to explode and take off, if you don't have it, you don't have it."
He missed Thursday's practice, and when asked if his star receiver would work out Friday, McDaniels said Marshall would be deactivated for the game and noted it was "a coaching decision," not an injury issue."
"There's a number of players that are going to play on Sunday with things that are much more difficult to deal with than what he has," McDaniels said, a phrase he repeated three times during his news conference.
"It's never going to be acceptable while I'm here and while this staff is here and while we're trying to build our staff with this philosophy. I don't know if it was acceptable before, but it isn't going to be now and it never will be. And this isn't about sending a message, it's about fielding a team that wants to go out there and win and give us the best opportunity to do that."
Co-captain Daniel Graham said that while Marshall has been a good teammate this year, McDaniels was doing what was in the team's best interests.
Marshall said he respected his coach's decision, but couldn't play effectively with his tweaked hamstring. He also couldn't believe McDaniels was questioning his toughness.
"I don't think coach ever played in the NFL, so for my hamstring to be feeling the way it felt, it's tough for me to go out there and expect to play at a high level," Marshall said. "I've battled through a whole lot of injuries before. I played the whole year last year with a tear in my hip. So, I don't think my toughness is in question here."
Marshall also took offense to the suggestion he wasn't buying into McDaniels' program.
"I'm a guy who's been giving it up a lot for this team," said Marshall, who has 101 receptions for 1,120 yards and 10 touchdowns. "I approached this year in a professional manner and I'm going to continue to do that. If he decides to take some personal shots because of the way the season's unfolding, it's not my fault. "I've made big plays when I'm supposed to."
What about accountability?
"Well, accountability and injury is different, you know?" Marshall said. "I pulled, well, I wouldn't say I pulled my hamstring, it's definitely not that bad, but it's tough."
Marshall said he hopes he's available next week if the Broncos make the playoffs, which would make for an awkward situation given all the accusations flying around Friday.
Are the Broncos laying the groundwork for a separation? Will the sides ever be able to patch up their differences?
Marshall is in the final year of a contract that pays him $2.2 million this season. His earnings power might be limited this offseason if there's no new collective bargaining agreement, leaving him as a restricted free agent. That means the Broncos could offer only a modest raise of about $1 million -- providing they want to keep him.
McDaniels said he didn't know if contractual issues were at the root of his latest dustup with Marshall, but suggested the receiver was putting selfish interests ahead of the team's.
Asked if Marshall will even be in the stadium Sunday, McDaniels said: "I don't know."
Was this the last straw?
"Anything I do moving forward is going to be in a professional manner," Marshall said. "I'm not going to get into any he said/she said like we've done in the past. I think that's childish, and like I said, I don't think there's any question about my toughness, the way I play the game. It could be first-and-10 and if I gain 15 yards, I'm still fighting for 16 yards."
