Life, the Internet, and Everything!

Hello world!

I’ve often argued with myself about (re)starting this blog – thinking there was never a really good place to “begin”. Kinda like starting a novel, I guess. An odd case of writer’s block.

So, I’ll just start out with today’s most notable event – the NFL draft. I am happy to report that for the first time ever (well, in 16 years anyway), two Broncos – Shea McClellin and Doug Martin were drafted in the first round. Wahoo. Our boys hit the big time. Shea went at #19 to “Da Bears”, and Doug gets to irritate and hopefully replace LaGarret Blount in Tampa Bay (rumor has it LB punched the TV at some point tonight – ha!).

Here’s a couple tweets about it:

“but they dont play anybody” RT @ESPNStatsInfo: 1st round picks.. Boise State: 2. Miami, Florida, FSU, Oklahoma, Texas, Ohio St: 0#NFLdraft

lol yea I’m talkin ish in the locker room tomorrow!! Lol IDC 2 in the 1st
Overall, it’s a pretty good day to be a Bronco.
Short post. Really got to get to sleep. Tomorrow gotta hit the EDI crapola again. Here’s a few pics someone is likely to enjoy…

    Are The Indianapolis Colts And The Chicago Bears On Their Way To A Perfect Season? Can Tennessee, who lost to the Colts 14-13 on Oct 8, close the gap and come back to beat the Colts on Dec. 3, and would Jacksonville or Philadelphia be a formidable threat?

    And, what about the Chicago Bears. Will the NY Giants be able to stop ‘Da Bears’ during the second half of Chicago’s schedule?

    Who will win the AFC and the NFC titles?
    Superbowl contenders….

      Every year there is at least one team that seems to be unbeatable at least for the first half of the season and sometimes longer. Eventually though, someone will catch them on a off week and give them at least one loss. Some of the best teams ever had one loss. The 85 Bears, the 88 49er’s were both incredible teams that took a loss that year. As for the 72 Dolphins, the year they went 14-0 they played only one team in that year that ended up with a winning season! The schedule makers now make that almost impossible so I say no, neither team will end up with a perfect season. Both have a great chance of having home field advantage. The Colts have struggled in the playoffs. The Bears look very strong.
      As of this moment I would say that it would be the Bears in the NFC and the Chargers in the AFC.

    Is Patriots At Bears Considered A Trap Game For The Favorite Patriots? Like the eagles were considered the favorites coming in to chicago, will the pats (who really hasn’t played good defense all season) end up getting spanked by Da Bears come sunday? The nay sayers don’t think Da Bears can win, just like they thought the eagles were going to run all over Da Bears.

    THE PLAY GREAT AS UNDERDOGS! REMEMBER THAT.

    DA BEARS.

      Only an idiot sleeps on the Bears and the Patriots coaches aren’t idiots. Some of the fans are, but the Patriots will be ready for our Bears. The Bears will have to come in and play well to come out on top. I believe they will. Bear Down!

    Who Agrees That Boise State Could Whoop Alabama In The Championships? Boise State is the most consistent program in all of college football.
    During the program’s remarkable rise to prominence in the 2000s, the Broncos racked up a record of 112-17, best in the nation. I say, that a team like that, could CONQUER ALABAMA, and so on.

    And with coach Chris Petersen spurning an offer from Stanford and choosing to remain in Boise this past winter, it seems unlikely that the Broncos’ winning ways are going to change anytime soon. So for now, all of you Boise haters may as well accept the fact that this team is not going away.

    They’ve been great for the better part of the past decade. They’ll be great again in 2012. But how great?

    OVERVIEW: One loss derailed what could have been a dream season for the Broncos in 2010. Boise came into the season with higher hopes than ever before–20 starters back, a Heisman-contending quarterback in Kellen Moore, and an opening-week showcase game against mighty Georgia. What the Broncos didn’t plan on was that meltdown by kicker Dan Goodale, which led to a heartbreaking late-season loss to TCU. With that single loss, Boise went from national title contender to BCS outsider. They ended up playing in the Macco Las Vegas Bowl. Not quite what they had in mind. So, suffice to say, they’re probably looking at 2012 as an opportunity for redemption.

    THE CEILING: A BCS bowl. The Broncos aren’t quite as loaded heading into 2011 as they appeared to be heading into 2010, but Moore has finished an outstanding fourth year as the starting quarterback and underrated tailback Doug Martin returns, too. Much of the offensive line will remain intact, as will the core of the defense–including freaking awesome defensive end Shea McClellin and linebacker Byron Hout. The schedule also set up nicely; the season opener against a rebuilding Georgia team was an easy-win, even though it’s a de facto road game (in Atlanta), and the Broncos also get Nevada and Air Force at home.

    THE VERDICT: Given all of this program’s success over the past decade, and given that the Broncos have already gotten over that BCS hump, it’s quite clear that the only goal that remains for Petersen is the national championship. Just getting to a BCS bowl isn’t enough these days, not for a program and a fan base that has come to expect only the best. A national title run certainly isn’t out of the question in 2012–the talent is here, and the schedule is favorable–but as always, the Broncos are going to have be absolutely perfect (even “close wins” cost this team with the voters) and hope that pretty much everyone else in the nation stumbles, too. It didn’t happen in 2011. I don’t think it will happen in 2012, either. REGULAR SEASON PREDICTION: 12-0!!

    Should I Trade Doug Martin? Should I trade Doug Martin for Julius Thomas and Fred Jackson?
    My team:
    QB-Stafford, Matt Ryan
    RB-Martin, Spiller, Woodhead, Eddie Lacy
    WR-Vincent Jackson, Cruz, Kenbrell Thompkins, Josh Gordon, Mike Wallace, Stevie Johnson
    TE-Jordan Cameron

      Yes. Thomas is slightly outscoring Cameron and Jackson is outscoring Martin by almost 2.5 pts/game. You don’t need two good TEs, but that part of the deal gives you something to work with toward another trade.

      That nice he should stabilize the SS position but knowing the bears they’ll probably put him out of position at FS. I honestly would of liked to see what Daniel Manning could do at the SS position becasue of his speed to track down ball carrier

      As usual, I have something to say about the top ten. I think Poe should go at #9 instead of Cox. His stock went up because of his measurables at the combine.

    Do I Trust Doug Martin? I have him on my ff team. Isk if I should keep him or trade him. I know he’s going high in drafts but is he really going to produce those kinds of numbers?

      How would I know if you trust Doug Martin?

      Do you trust him or not? And why’d you draft him if you didn’t trust him?

      If you’d rather have Lynch or Charles or Spiller or Richardson… then ask the owners of those guys if they’d rather have Martin.

      Sort of a personal preference at this point. Some like him a lot, some not as much.

    Ray Rice Or Doug Martin? I have the 4th pick in a 10 team non PPR league. I am sure that the first 3 picks are going to go: AP, Foster, Lynch in that order. I am leaning towards Martin because he has an easier schedule and has the backfield to himself, but I think ray rice may be the safer pick…need some help…who should I take?

      I wouldn’t assume that Lynch would be the 3rd pick. Make sure you have a back up plan.

      If it were between Rice and Martin, I would go with Martin. Rice might be “safer”, as he’s been as solid as they come for years now, but everything Rice does, Martin does it better. He’s a better pass catcher. He’s quicker. Plays behind a superior offensive line. And gets to face the Saints D and Panthers D twice a year.

      However, I’d go with Charles over both of em. I think he has ridiculous upside this year playing with an actual QB, a great offensive line, and solid receivers around him. Andy Reid will find ways to get him the ball and I think Charles is going to have a monster year.
