Contextless Football Thoughts

Denver Broncos logo Well the Denver Broncos are 5-0 after beating the New England Patriots in OT on Sunday.  You have no idea how much this messes with me.  Emotionally I was prepared for a 5-11 record and now they are 5-0.  I am not sure how to handle this.  Do I start to believe that Denver could contend for a for a playoff spot or do I stand firm with my 7-9 best case scenario.  Say whatever you want about Josh McDaniels but he ability to bring disgruntled receiver, Brandon Marshall back into the fold has had a big impact on this season.  Could you see Eric Mangini patching up a relationship like this? 

While we have seen the Patriots replace coordinator after coordinator and not miss a beat, has the loss of Josh McDaniels hurt Tom Brady?

Cleveland Browns logoHow much fun can it be to be a Cleveland Browns fan.  First they hired the most socially dysfunctional coach this side of Mike Keenan because he was an offensive genius and then they start 0-4, change their QB’s and then still stink.  Finally they win a game but they win the game 6-3.  Their QB, Derek Anderson was 2-17 or 23 yards which is slightly worse than what Napoleon Dynamite’s, Uncle Rico could do if given the chance.  For the record, this is far worse than what Brady Quinn ever did.

San_Francisco_49ers_helmet_rightfaceThis is painful for me to stay as I really like Mike Singletary as a player and as a coach but until he gets his temper and intensity under control he will continue to hurt his team.  Of course Dre’ Bly hurt the team in his own way when celebrating while making an interception.  Of course his team was down 25 points at the time.  In his defence, Bry decide to speak in third person.  “Dre’s going to be Dre’,” Bly said. “When I make plays, and I’ve made a lot, I express myself.”  He made so many places in Denver they cut him.  What an idiot.

University of Saskatchewan Huskies A little closer to home, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies walked all over the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.  If I am UBC, I may put off my move to the NCAA until I can be competitive consistently in the CIS.  The University of Saskatchewan Huskies’ offence woke up scoring five touchdowns en route to a 44-7 victory over the UBC Thunderbirds.  Questioned for their lack of offence in first few weeks of the season, the Huskies entered the game with just three touchdowns and 55 points in their first four games of the season.

Other quick hits… I can’t believe that the Tennessee Titans are 0-5…I am glad to see that the Cinncinnati Bengals are doing well.  Part of me wonders if they are more stable because of Chad Ochocinco finding a community on Twitter…

  1. i didn’t think UBC was going to be competing in football are they? i was assuming (perhaps incorrectly) that they were going with volleyball, basketball, hockey etc but not football because the games are just different from across the line.

  2. It’s hard for me to believe Denver’s record also, however, the coaching staff has done a good job with Orton and apparently telling him not to “look like a jerk”, translated, don’t be a hero. I think that they may be 10-6, their early season luck will give out. At least I don’t feel ashamed of my Denver Broncos ski cap I wear running every morning. Of course, I have a Detroit Lions cap too (stays in the closet).
