Denver Broncos Crush Cowboys, 42-17

Siemian, Broncos crush Elliott, Cowboys 42-17

DENVER (AP) — Aqib Talib’s 103-yard interception return for a touchdown with 53 seconds left was the final indignity for the Cowboys in the Denver Broncos’ 42-17 blowout of Dallas and its vaunted offense on Sunday.

It was Talib’s 10th pick-6, just two shy of Darren Woodson’s NFL record.

“No. 10,” relished Talib. “It’s just mind-boggling.”

Sort of like Denver’s defensive dominance of Dallas and its vaunted offense.

Ezekiel Elliott had the worst game of his career with nine carries for 8 yards, Dallas managed just 40 yards rushing and one first down on the ground. The Cowboys (1-1) went 3-for-14 on third downs and failed three times on fourth down, looking nothing like the team that dominated the Giants in their opener.

“I want to emphasize today, this is not what we’re about in my view,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “I feel strongly about that. On the other hand, this is what Denver is about.”

The only big blemish in Denver’s fifth straight 2-0 start was the apparently serious injury to their top draft pick, left tackle Garett Bolles, who left the stadium on crutches and with a boot on his left foot after getting hurt in the third quarter.

forget about those damn Emmy’s, more hurricanes on the way, or the latest Trump idiocy on twitter… the most important, news worthy thing for today is the fact that the Broncos kicked the Cowboys ass yesterday — and it was a beautifoo thing to watch :)

on the flipside, the injuries we’re sustaining only 2 games into the season is a bit worrisome… i mean, damn.

Chiefs Upset Patriots, 42-27

Rookie runs into the record books…

There will be no 19-0 talk in New England this time. The pining for Patrick Mahomes at quarterback in Kansas City can be put on hold, too.

The Chiefs’ 42-27 victory in Foxborough to kick off the NFL season Thursday night was a gift to NFL fans looking for surprise in a top-heavy league. One fantastic performance by the Chiefs helped upend so many lazy storylines that built throughout the offseason. Let us count the ways:

1. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith knows the rap on him. He can’t throw deep. He pilots a station-to-station offense that is more efficient than exciting. One game doesn’t erase a career’s worth of evidence, but it’s hard to say this Chiefs offense is still boring under Smith. Coach Andy Reid pilots a creative offense which borrows liberally from the spread concepts Smith used to run in college. He wound up completing 28 of 35 passes for 368 yards and four touchdowns. It was the first time a Bill Belichick-coached team has ever given up two touchdown passes over 75 yards in the same game.

Smith benefited from a coverage bust and the incredible talent of his playmakers Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt, but that talent isn’t going anywhere. If the Chiefs can put up 42 points during a quiet night from tight end Travis Kelce, they are going to be difficult to stop.

2. Hunt gained 246 yards from scrimmage, more than any player in NFL history since the 1970 merger. It’s tempting to call him a revelation, but the third-round rookie has consistently been touted by draftniks and analytics wonks as a future star. (Pro Football Focus ranked him No. 1 among all college running backs last season, and it’s easy to see why.) Despite fumbling on his first career snap, Hunt ran with decisiveness and aggression. He gained a lot of his 147 rushing yards after contact and showed the ability to make defenders miss in the hole.

man, didn’t expect that going into the first real game of the 2017 season…! i’m not a fan of either the Chiefs or the Patriots, though being a lifelong broncos fan i was secretly pulling for the Patriots to drop a smackdown on the Chiefs — hell, i fully expected it… especially after seeing how the Pats were playing in the first quarter.

…but damn!

i’m both nervous and looking forward to see the Broncos play monday night.

First Time Playing Golf

went out yesterday and played 9-holes of golf for the first time… i’ve had a buddy talking and bugging me about it for at least the past year or so, and i finally broke down and said, “okay sure, let’s do this mang”

i’ve never really liked golf, and i guess i’ve had this weird bias against it pretty much my entire life… probably because i still remember going out with my dad when i was a kid and playing “caddy” for him, and how much it really really sucked…

so yeah, i popped my golf cherry yesterday.

…and yes, i sucked at it… everything i’ve heard about it was pretty much dead on, and it’s definitely a lot harder than it looks… and apparently i’m doing all sorts of things wrong, because i woke up this morning sore as all hell — seriously, my left shoulder hurts like i must’ve been smacking it with the golf club or something… my wrist hurts, my back is sore, and even my damn fingrers/thumb is sore.

fuck me.

was it fun? sure, though i’m not exactly sure if it’s my thing… i can see how people would get wrapped up in it, and can see the appeal… i mean, i managed to hit the golf ball with a driver over this crazy little pond and felt like i just won the world series or something. lol

anybody into golf?

Why The Broncos Suck

Why Your Team Sucks 2017: Denver Broncos

Your 2016 record: 9-7. Ah see, now that’s the kind of Late Shanny-Era Broncos record I’m accustomed to. Nice hot 4-0 start, and then they turn jussssst shitty enough to miss the playoffs. Feels like everything is back in its proper order.

Gary Kubiak retired suddenly after last season due to health concerns. This is the same man that kept coaching after stroking out on the sideline, so he must have swallowed a grenade or something. Now, the seemingly obvious thing to do after Kubiak’s retirement would be to promote from within and maintain continuity for a team merely two years removed from a Super Bowl title. That’s…not what John Elway did.

Your quarterback: I guess it’s still Trevor Siemian, because Paxton Lynch is just Christian Hackenberg on a better team. No team got boned harder by Tony Romo’s retirement than the 2017 Broncos. I can’t believe a 37-year-old man with a decaying spine would turn down the chance to play on top of a mountain for a shady, unproven head coach. The mind reels, I tell you.

There are few things I hate more than seeing a stud defense forced to drag a limpdick offense through a full season, but that’s what’s about to happen all over again here. This will be one of the least watchable teams in football. The defense will be openly feuding with the offense and extra pissy by Week 2. It’s scary to think that the Broncos are out here relying on a nobody like Trevor Siemian to stay healthy so that they don’t have to trot out Lynch and have him be fully exposed for the flop that he is. Somewhere in Durango, there’s a dude rocking a Tebow jersey and keeping his fingers crossed.

Continue…

oh man, brutal… but fun as hell to read, and i’m a broncos fan! haha

probably wouldn’t be so funny if it weren’t true.

damnit.

PS. of course, there’s always the redskins…

Atlanta’s New Sexy Stadium

Watch atlanta’s soon-to-be-open mercedes-benz stadium roof close in this time lapse…

The city of atlanta, and its football team the atlanta falcons are soon to open one of the world’s most spectacular venues: the mercedes-benz stadium. designed by HOK in collaboration with tvsdesign, goode van slyke architecture and stanley beaman & sears, the stadium will position itself as an iconic architectural landmark for the city. created with functionality and flexibility in mind, the structure has a capacity of 75,000 seats that can be expanded to 83,000. but its signature element is a retractable roof that provides a radical departure from kinetic roofs.

i’m actually looking forward to seeing this new kickass stadium when the falcons play this coming season… and being a broncos fan, i can’t help but wonder when are we gonna break ground and get started on a new sexy stadium? i know we will at some point, so i’ll just have to wait… and when we do, i’ll probably have to get some tickets and fly out to enjoy a game!

oh hell yeah.

The Falcons’ billion-dollar stadium will have a Chick-fil-A that’s almost never open

Broncos & Drew Brees

Denver Broncos Should Trade For Quarterback Drew Brees

If the Broncos had to play a real game tomorrow, Siemian would be the starting quarterback. Lynch is going to get one last chance, but it’s going to take a really stellar outing for him to secure the quarterback spot. Based on what Lynch has shown up to this point in his career it is far-fetched to think that the light is somehow going to come on and he’s all of a sudden going to look like a starting quarterback.

What is more likely is that the quarterbacks are going to be a lot more of the same Saturday night. If this is the case, John Elway has got to look elsewhere. This roster is Super Bowl “Ready” now. If the Broncos added a veteran that could play at a high level, the top-to-bottom talent on this roster will surpass New England. The guy to take them there? Drew Brees.

hmmm, now that certainly is an interesting option..! hadn’t even heard or thought of drew brees, since i just figured there was no way in hell that they Saints would let him go… but if that’s true, and we all know how Elway can roll… well shit, i can see him actually making some calls and making a deal happen if he really wanted to.

the way things are now, i’d be almost bouncing off the damn walls if this happened… holy shit, that’d be awesome… all we really need is a damn (good) quarterback, damnit.

NFL Preseason 2017, The Biggest Concerns

The biggest concern for each NFL team headed into the 2017 preseason

BRONCOS: THE NFL’S SECOND-MOST DEPRESSING QB BATTLE

If not for the Jets’ three-man crapapalooza, the Broncos’ quarterback battle would be the laughing stock of the league. Reports out of camp do not bode well for either incumbent starter Trevor Siemian and supposed QB of the future Paxton Lynch. Siemian doesn’t have the physical tools to be a starter in the league, and Lynch lacks everything else required to successfully play the quarterback position. It’s going to be another long year for an already over-taxed defense.

been following the broncos in the offseason here and there, and i gotta say… don’t really have a whole lot of warm ‘n fuzzies over our QB situation either… soooooo many changes as usual, but damn — you’d think they’d have this all figured out by now.

i watched the premier of ‘Hard Knocks’ on HBO last night, and even though i’m not a Bucs fan by any stretch of the imagination, it did get me all pumped up for this coming football season… oh man, seriously, bring it the fuck on already!

speaking of football, looking forward to chilling out and watching tonights game even if it’s just a preseason game between the Texans and Panthers.

PS. happy retirement, wilfork!

The Strangest, Dumbest Minute Of Basketball

This Is The Strangest, Dumbest Minute Of Basketball We’ve Seen In A Long Time

To break things down:

  1. Russia (red) is supposed to score on the basket on the left; Spain (white), the basket on the right. 
  2. At the 1:17:40 mark, Russia brings the ball down the court and attempts to score on the correct hoop;
  3. A Russian player steps out of bounds while rebounding a missed shot, which should give Spain the ball;
  4. BUT! A Russian player goes to inbound the ball, and nobody seems to notice, including the referee, who gives her the ball;
  5. Presumably so perplexed by the mixup they can’t think straight, the Russians inbound the ball and… starts driving down the court the wrong way;
  6. A Russian player spots up and drains a three on her own hoop;
  7. Finally, everyone wakes up from whatever nap they were taking, and after much deliberation, Spain is awarded the three points. 

Yeah, we don’t know either.

Caps Lose, Yet Again

Scott Van Pelt, ‘sick and freaking tired’ of Caps’ playoff routine, speaks for every fan

There will be a lot of people saying the same thing in different words this week. A lot of people saying things they’ve said before. A lot of people running out of things to say. That started Wednesday night — after the Caps lost yet another Game 7, and yet another time to Pittsburgh, and yet another time in the second round — and it will continue for at least a few more days. I probably was supposed to put my own slant on it, but I stared at a blank screen for a while and then left Verizon Center. I’ve done some version of this story so many times, and I didn’t have another way to do it.

I even interviewed fans for the piece I never did.

“Every year it’s the same [expletive] story,” said Will Brower.

“What a tragedy,” said my friend Bill Keefe. “How many years? This has been really overdone.”

“Worst night ever to be a Washington sports fan,” said Richard Strauss [really]. “It’s so sad. It’s really a sad night. It hurt. It hurt. It’s tough to be so entirely attached and at the same time so emotionally drained.”

“The curse remains,” said Reza Khadiri.

yup, the curse continues… seriously though, i’ve lived here (virginia) for the past 20 years or so, and have never seen any of the sports teams win anything… Wizards? nope… Nationals? yeah right… Redskins? can’t even muster up the words… and the fucking Caps? cursed.

was really disappointed last night, mang.

fucking hell.

fuck the penguins.

fuck the caps.

fuck dc.

F*ck The Penguins

NHL Playoffs: Capitals suffocate Penguins with defense, force Game 7

In the past two games, the Pittsburgh Penguins have had the Washington Capitals on the brink of elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs.

And in both those games, the Capitals have stepped up and stood out, keeping their ever-elusive title hopes alive.

The biggest reasons after a 5-2 rout in Game 6 in Pittsburgh?

Defense, defense and defense.

oh man, i’m finding it really hard not to root for the Caps here… feel like we’ve been down this road soooooo many times, only to come up short time and time again.

game 7 is tomorrow night, can’t wait… already feel like i’m on pins and needles a bit here just thinking about it… c’mon caps, don’t let us down!

Kaerpernick Will Stand

Colin Kaerpernick Will Stand For Anthem

Who could sleep this NFL offseason wondering as to how Colin Kaerpernick would treat the pre-game national anthem in the future. Rest easy, buttercup. Kaepernick through his new agents has let it be known he will be standing for future renditions of the Star Spangled Banner.

This may or may not have something to do with Kaepernick declaring his free agency from the Niners and looking to thirty-one other teams for his next job. It’s fun to play pretend. Let me see, your starting level QB skills are questionable and people who consume our league’s official beverage detest your BLM kneeling bit. Pass. Where’s that gay defensive end who couldn’t get around NFL caliber O-linemen? We need a cover.

Kaepernick wants to ensure that the progress brought about by his season of kneeling is not lost with his decision to stop kneeling in order to get paid. Your legacy seems intact. What was it you did again? Oh, yeah. Trump.

At some point rational people who no longer exist will decide that it’s particularly unnecessary to perform a splashy anthem before every sporting event. Not every old tradition is outdated. This one is. It went the way of internationalizing professional sports leagues and multibillion dollar TV contracts and Commissioners sweeping domestic violence and PED use under the rug.

We don’t insist on the national anthem performance before any other recreational or entertainment events. Usually a simple reminder to turn off your cellphones suffices. The mechanized musical protocol before games provides no patriotic distinction and now has become an opportunity for attention seekers to provide for the exact opposite. With the national anthem, Kaepernick is a civil rights icon, without the national anthem, a dude with a wicked fro holding a clipboard on the sidelines. Bring back dogs catching frisbees.

i remember hearing some “rumor” awhile ago about Kaerpernick maybe going or looking to go to the Broncos, and i wasn’t all that happy to hear about that… personally, i’d hate to see that guy kneeling on the sidelines wearing broncos orange… fuck that… then again, i just read something about Elway and Romo working out some deal — g’damnit, really?!??

$1,000 For Tom Brady Autograph

Tom Brady is signing autographs for $1,000, so crack open that college fund

For a certain slice of the country, love of Tom Brady supersedes love for one’s own children, love for food, love for oxygen. And now, Brady and a memorabilia dealer are putting a price on that love.

TriStar Memorabilia is hosting a private signing for Brady, and as long as you’ve got the coin, you get the benefits. How much coin, you ask? Well, grab your wallets, because even reading this list will cost you twenty bucks:

  • Signed 8×10 photo: $849
  • Signed mini-helmet: $899
  • Signed football: $999
  • Signed helmet: $1,099
  • Signed jersey: $1,199

Oh, but that’s not all! Want to get Brady to write something special on your thousand-dollar football? He’ll do it! “5x Super Bowl Champ” will cost you $399. “4x Super Bowl MVP” is a relative bargain at $299. “16-0, 07,” for those Patriots fans still in denial, is also $299. (Only one inscription per item, moneybags.) And if you want Brady to inscribe something personal, why, that’s $499, but twenty characters only! “I will my fortune to [NAME]” presumably won’t fly, but maybe “The Falcons deserved to win” would. Who knows? Give it a try!

wonder where the money is going, though? i mean, if he’s doing it and the proceeds are all going to his favorite charity then that’s cool… but if he’s got over $100 million in the bank and he’s keeping it? ummmm, yeah… not so cool, dude.

Patriots Win In Greatest Super Bowl Comeback Of All Time

Greatest Super Bowl Win Leaves No Doubt: Tom Brady Is the Best Ever

HOUSTON — It was over. You thought it. The Falcons thought it. Everyone on Earth thought it.

But we all forgot, in that moment, something vital. The Patriots had the best quarterback to ever play the game. They may have had the best athlete in American sports history. They had Tom Damn Brady.

What else can you say? What words can you use? How do you keep describing what he does? How many times can your eyes pop out of your head?

“I’m numb and I can barely talk,” said tight end Martellus Bennett.

“He is amazing, the most amazing player I’ll ever see or play with,” said receiver Chris Hogan.

“There’s nothing you can really say,” said a stunned Matt Ryan.

“I’m at a loss for words,” said Julian Edelman.

We all are. The only thing that can leave social media, players and Roger Goodell speechless is Tom Damn Brady. Not Lady Gaga.

Pats 34, Choking Birds 28, in overtime, Super Bowl 51.

GOAT quarterbacks: only one.

i’m still kind of in shock… i mean, i was there watching the game and thought the game was pretty much over at half-time… then halfway into the 3rd quarter, with the score 28-3, i thought for sure it was over and more surprised at the fact that it wasn’t a better game at that point — just seemed like the Patriots didn’t really look, or were playing, like the patriots we’ve seen all season long y’know?

then some crazy shit started to happen, and next thing i know the patriots are playing… getting sacks… finally catching some balls… and pushing some touchdowns into the endzone.

wow.

it’s either the greatest Super Bowl of all time, or the worst — depending on which team you were root’n for… again, i’m still seems surreal to me… i mean… wow, just wow.

Falcons vs. Patriots

well, the Super Bowl is finally upon us this coming sunday… and if you have any interest in the game, either the Patriots or Falcons, or just sports in general — i’m sure you’ve had quite a few conversations about this one in the past week or two, and are probably all ready-n-set for kickoff… so who are you pull’n for in Super Bowl LI?

since i’m not really a fan of either team, i’ll be rooting for the Falcons in this one… i’ll have my fingers crossed and hope for the best for ’em, even though i think the Patriots will probably end up winning the damn thing.

ugh.

if nothing else, i just hope for a good game… with good company… and good beer :)

Super Bowl 51

Super Bowl 51: Matt Ryan’s Falcons vs. Tom Brady’s Pats

ATLANTA — To appreciate the magnitude of what we saw Sunday in the last football game ever at the Georgia Dome, we must consider what was happening in this city the April day Matt Ryan was drafted in 2008.

I was in Atlanta that weekend. Michael Vick was not. He was in federal prison in Kansas, serving nearly two years for dogfighting and animal cruelty. But the city not only hadn’t forgotten him; many in the city were keeping his seat warm and wanted him as their quarterback when he finished doing his time. I remember the day before the draft walking through a mall and thinking, All these people with Vick jerseys or T-shirts supporting him … amazing. So when Ryan got picked third overall by new GM Thomas Dimitroff, it was a new start. But some locals seemed unmoved.

An Atlanta TV sports anchor, Gil Tyree, told me on draft day 2008 that Vick “is a messiah here. … No matter what Matt Ryan will do, he’ll never be accepted.”

Yikes.

Now to Sunday, and the 44-21 beatdown of the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, leading to the second Super Bowl appearance for the Falcons in their history. As Ryan compiled a four-touchdown, 392-yard game in the biggest game of his nine-year career, three times the crowd in the Dome rained down chants of “M-V-P! M-V-P! M-V-P!” Six straight games without an interception … Heavy favorite to win the NFL MVP on Feb. 4 … Crowd screaming for him as he left the field like New York screamed for the Beatles in 1964.

oh man, where to start? i was sooooo excited, all week long i’ve been really looking forward to the championship games, thinking that it would be the best damn football games we’ve seen all year long with some serious matchups… i really didn’t see the Packers coming out like that and getting their collective asses handed to them by the Falcons — i mean, wow.

as for the Patriots/Steelers game, i figured that the Patriots would probably win that one, but i still thought that at least it would be a game… that the Steelers would be competitive, especially in the lead up with the “killer b’s” and all that.

pretty disappointing.

i’m totally root’n for the Falcons in the Super Bowl.

p.s. maybe they should rename it the “Patriots Bowl”?
