    Never out of a game. Down 3... Down 7... Down a couple touchdowns... Mahommes will just smile and say, "Hold my beer and watch this!" Underhand pass. Connects for a long pass throwing off his back foot. Sidearm pass. Receivers who are fast and get open. Tight end that is best in the league. Then they recruit this "midget" running back out of LSU that is greased lightning!
    The weak spot the past couple of years has been their defense. So much better this year. Defense took some negative comments after the Chargers game. Frank Clark was out. They couldn't keep him out of the backfield this past Monday.

    What the heck has happened in Denver??? So sad. Used to be such a competitive organization. The Chiefs/Broncos feud fueled excitement for one of the biggest rivalries in the NFL. It's fizzled. The Chiefs... Chargers... Raiders... The division looks past Denver and wants real competition. Can we get the 'Orange Crush' back?????

    I fear Elway was way better at QB than he is at running the show. I miss the days when we were always contending for AFC West title. After Manning retired, we fizzled.

    To be fair the “old” AFC West was pretty bad. The Seahawks were a joke through most of the &0’s and 90’s. The Chiefs...Chargers were pretty blah in the 80’s. The Raiders would put it together every so often but went into a funk after Bo.

    It was fun to watch them in their SB runs with TD. And also to be fair, Elway took some pretty Drexel teams to the SB.

    I understand Elway has been extremely successful with his ownership of a number of auto dealerships. He didn't sell cars through his early career, he played football. Hence, he had to hire professionals in the auto industry to manage the dealerships and make them successful. As a former player... and a pretty good player... I fear he is micromanaging the Broncos where he allows his hired managers to handle the dealerships. Some of the best golf teachers aren't that good at playing the game. Some of the best PGA players would never have the patience to correct my "roping a runaway steer" golf swing. If Elway would step aside and let a management team run the Broncos organization, could they return to some semblance of success??

    The unexpected bye week is forcing me to scramble on my fantasy team as my first round pick, Henry, is now riding the pine.

    I am hoping that this is a one time incident, but sadly, it is probably only the beginning.

    I guess I can just watch the Falcons for three quarters, and turn them off before their Q4 collapse.

    Broncos vs Jets tonight. Tune in as two 0-3 teams battle it out to see who can be less bad than the other team.

    Someone has to win.....although, a 0 - 0 tie game is theoretically possible.

    Broncos were less bad! Rypien was up and down but I'm happy with any win.

    Pats vs Chiefs game now on hold as Cam Newton tested positive for Covid. Tentatively rescheduled for Mon or Tue, but who knows for sure.

    The good news is the Broncos have been on TV a lot this season. Not living in Colorado anymore, I haven't been able to see as many games.

    The bad news is the Broncos have been on TV a lot this season.........

    Monday at 6:00 Central Time. I thought the Mahommes/Newton matchup would be fun to watch. Hope both teams are hitting on all cylinders. Just wish we had Howard Cosell on MNF to do the commentary.
