I've got your Orange Crush right here

I can already sense more discussion about Krackel being the #2 candy than Denver being the number two team. So let's end that right here.

Krackel is, to Halloween, like jellybeans are for Easter.

Is is the best candy served? Debatable.

But almost every person you ask wishes they could find Krackle year round. Everyone wishes that Krackel could be purchased in sizes where you could eat less than 20 to be satisfied.

But no, the Halloween Hershey's multi pack is the only place you can find Krackle. If you blink, you might miss it.

America feels the same way about the Denver Broncos.

This team of destiny is roughly three football bounces away from being 0-6 and somehow managed to strike gold on every single free agent they brought in this past off season.

A recent ESPN poll showed that almost all of America believes Denver will lose before Indy or New Orleans will.

So under-appreciated yet so awesome.

Just like pouring milk chocolate over crisped rice.


ROFL!

The reason we're predicted to lose is because Indy probably plays some 0-12 team (I know it's week 8... exactly) and New Orleans is really good and plays an "ok" team in atlanta.

The caliber of teams that we are playing is much higher than NO and ESPECIALLY Indy....DAL could very well be undefeated right now(lost to NYG on last second FG and were 1 yard away from tying us up)--the Pats are a top 10 NFL team, CINCY is a top 15 team and SD has a high scoring offense and have owned us the last 3 years--and this week we get the Ravens ---then PIT--the saints host ATL this week (they'll win that) and Indy plays the 49ers at home..I'd rather play either one of those teams than B-more. The colts will lose a maximum of 3-4 games this year (NE, @ HOU and @ B-more) ---The game we play against them on DEC 13th could very well be for homefield in the entire AFC---who woulda' thunk that? McD is a GENIUS.

i was labeled one of the resident homers on this board for calling for a 10-6 record and a playoff berth, and even i didn't believe we would ever be this high on anyone's power rankings.

Isn't Krackle just Nestle Crunch in a red wrapper?

You guys should go read these, most of them are pretty good.

Here's the Chefs one:

28) Kansas City Chiefs—Circus Peanuts

This crazy old lady is the last Kansas City Chiefs fan and even she knows they suck. Very soon, she, like the rest of the fanbase, will pick another team to root for. She also may grow up to be Emperor Palpatine—just sayin', the resemblance is there.

Circus Peanuts are the consistency of Styrofoam and are banana flavored.

Let's get this straight—there is only one use for banana flavored candy, and that use is to throw at smaller siblings and the elderly.

When you make candy which is banana flavored and made of marshmallows, you have failed in proportions so epic that no funny looking cat could ever be used to caption your disgrace.

When you hand Matt Cassel SIXTY-THREE MILLION after one year of success, you are just asking for a Captain Picard Facepalm.

Speaking of utter stupidity, really Larry Johnson, you think you're in any position to criticize anyone right now? You're averaging 2.7 yards per game.

Larry, I'm happy for your father. Thank you for pointing out that he played for Herman Boone and now coaches for Penn State.

However, at the moment, Herman Boone would break off his foot in your "John Brown hindquarters" and you would be riding the pine behind Evan Royster.

Take the advice of another well-known internet meme and have a tall glass of "STFU."

18) San Diego Chargers—Nerds

I thought this was great....really, no explaination was necessary past that header.

#2 is also known a shiit in some circles. ;D

Which I was going for.
