Kubiak collapses on sideline
 
http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...colts/3429381/

Scary week for Bronco and former Bronco coaches. Get well soon Kubes.

Crushaholic 11-04-2013 12:10 PM

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh. I get to do this...

WE LANDED ON THE MOON!!!

(Did I do that right? Good.)

In all seriousness, this is old news. However, this thread can be used as an update on Kubes condition. I'm hearing that he will go home, tomorrow...

cutthemdown 11-04-2013 12:11 PM

LOL I looked and didn't see one going. I guess people were not posting in it much.

Of course, I'm just giving you a hard time. However, it was mentioned during the Colts-Texans game thread...

cutthemdown 11-04-2013 12:17 PM

I think he was important enough to the Broncos to warrant it's own thread. I loved Kubiak and was a tad bummed he never became our coach. He hasn't won so not as much anymore.

Nope. Only appropriate if another thread was started with the same info. So since it was just mentioned in a game thread, a new thread for just this is right. I award you no points and you have not prepared your anus.

When Kubiak left, Shanahan's legacy started to tarnish. It was probably a combination of Kubiak taking the bootleg play with him, Plummer's decreasing passion for football, and Shanahan's misguided loyalty to bad defensive coordinators. In any case, the Broncos were never the same (post-Kubiak).

He should get some bitcoins.

I've been thinking lately about what has made this place lose some popularity (and desirability), over the past few years. This is one of the things.

And, let me say, I have been as guilty of this as anybody. Today, I am publicly repenting.

Starting the occasional duplicate thread is FINE! And, in a case like this, it's not even a duplicate thread!

If a topic is mentioned in a semi-unrelated thread, then starting a new thread about it is not starting a duplicate thread.

If a thread is cleverly (but not necessarily clearly) labeled, then starting a new thread about the topic is understandable (although it still probably should be combined, which is why we have moderators).

If a thread is duplicated because the first one is simply missed - well, so what? If a person does it all the time, they should be called out. We've all done it once or twice. Poke your fun, and move on.

Over the last few years, the biggest thing I've noticed here has been the shallow pool of the regular posters. There just doesn't seem to be as many people posting regularly, as there was at one time. This is especially worrisome since the popularity of the Broncos seems to be at nearly an all-time high.

How about we all stop being so elitist about some of this stuff - in this case, starting what might be a duplicate thread? Maybe we'll get more lurkers - folks who might be otherwise a little afraid of starting new threads - to start posting again.

I wanted to start this thread last night but didn't want to know about us landing on the moon or that we have a black president.

Beantown Bronco 11-04-2013 02:01 PM

You know how you can tell that this isn't a duplicate thread?


The pixels.

Most of us aren't quite as adept at pixel analysis. I am quite good at it, of course. But I've had a lot of practice.

cutthemdown 11-04-2013 02:11 PM

This is a strange place.

rmsanger 11-04-2013 03:06 PM

After this losing season I say stick a fork in him cause his job is gone. It's been a disaster for them....

I agree. We're all Broncos fans here. That's why we come here. There should be more friendliness and support among fellow fans, not constant attacks and juvenile judgment over the most trivial bull****...

that's all I've got. :puff:

Pretty sure there is already a thread about this somewhere, loser.

That's some awesome news

Garcia Bronco 11-04-2013 06:48 PM

Get well coach.

Agamemnon 11-04-2013 06:54 PM

That's some pretty serious stuff right there. Might be time to retire from coaching.

Hulamau 11-04-2013 07:21 PM

The TIA is likely due to an embolic clot formed in his left atrial appendage that broke off after converting back to normal sinus rhythm from what may have been up diagnosed and asymptomatic episode of either paroxysmal or possibly persistent atrial fibrillation. Or, perhaps from ischemia in one or both of his carotid arteries possibly due to progression of arteriosclerosis and plaque formation there? ... In any event those are the two most likely origins for his TIA but not the only possibility... Nevertheless, they need to find out which it is to plan best preventative treatment to avoid a more serious stroke down the road.

Since we're duplicatin and metriculatin suppose Kubes keeps the job, any thoughts on Cutler ending up in Houston as a FA? His calm and cool could balance out Kubes jitters.

:P

As to Dom's post, I think Cut knows I was just joking. If anything, I was poking fun at that tradition. Heck...I got that same treatment, a few weeks back. It's all in good fun...
