Von Miller MVP of this game. Should be AFC defensive player of week too. He's just taken over this game.

Hillman with his first NFL TD.
Does he have the talent to be a good RB? I am a bit tired of McGahee.

JJ Watt will probably destroy the Bears O-line, so he has a good shot at winning that award.

Funny - I was actually thinking with the recent finds in the Denver backfield, we could go for a RB high in the next draft. I think Hillman's a bit small to be an every down back but we could use someone to groom behind McGahee. I also think they could go OL or LB.



On another note, anyone else getting amusement out of the Kansas City Chiefs? Scott Pioli, Romeo Crennel, Brady Quinn (McDaniels), Matt Cassell (McDaniels), Peyton Hillis.....there's so many weird and twisted Josh McDaniel/New England Pats twists to that team...and they are freaking horrible.

I think they might go WR, actually. I think Thomas will continue to grow into a true #1, but Decker has struggled a bit, and I think would be a better slot guy anyways. If Terrance Williams is there in the first, I think that's a possibility.

RB or LB also might happen, but I see DL over OL for sure.

I think the Broncos would go with LB or RB in the 1st round of next years draft.

I think we've got to go with the DL. Replace some of the guys who are getting older in tooth. That's where we're probably weakest, I think. I'd help a lot of with stopping the run, too, because that's one of our weakest areas. Although getting DJ back should help some in that regards for the LBs.

Too many teams have run on our defense for me not to want to shore up that area for next draft. Thankfully, we're usually playing at a point where most teams are likely passing, so we haven't been completely exposed (minus the New England game).

I really really hope Jack Del Rio doesn't get a head coaching gig next year.

Also it was really cool to see Holliday get some touches on offense, our own Sproles.

"Holy ****" indeed my friend. Dare I say that this deal is of a bigger magnitude than the Dodgers/Red Sox deal...though that one was still the more complicated of the two, just for the fact that players had to pass through waivers unclaimed by teams above them in order for the deal to work...and even then 2 players had to be listed as Players To Be Named Later

I suddenly visualize every hitter on the Rockies chasing unhittable sliders in the dirt in two strike situations. Every. ****ing. Time.

That's crazy. I hated Lansford when he started but I was starting to come around on liking him. I think he did a decent job.

I think you could bring anyone in as hitting coach of this team though and they will do fair. It's the pitching that has to get better.

Lansford wasn't the greatest hire, but he was manageable.

Can we just get that trade back from the Knicks? Gallo is busting hard now, Chandler is inexistent, and Mozgov is ****. We still have tonnes of depth, but we'd be so much better if we had a shooter.

That would be idiotic, Melo is better than anyone on our team but he doesn't fit with this offense. Gallo plays defense, Melo doesn't (although I've heard he's actually trying on defense this year, but we'll see how long it lasts).


Also, Tad Boyle is god. He just signed a contract extension too.

We'd still have plenty of depth and our system needs a shooter.

And Von Miller is too sick

Went to the Broncos game. Defense was great, but the offense seemed off.

Atleast we have a 3 game advance in the division now.

Melo has been playing 2-way ball this year, but his play before the D'Antoni firing was disgusting. I honestly thought this was the worst move in franchise history. Felton may be most valuable player in the deal.

With the way things are shaking out now, Gallo has just been so bad.

CU is legit, and getting better. Tad Boyle is a top tier coach, and his kids play hard every night. I'm expecting big things this year and the coming years in Boulder. Its nice to have some quality college hoops in the state.
