i didn't click the article, just read the snippet you posted.
i just couldn't shake that he was playing at 237 at one point during his career in Denver.

Bikram is bs IMO because its not strenuous cardiovascularly or musculalrly it's just really ****ing hot. Stupidly so IMO.

It they want to do yoga I'd go with ashtanga which promotes fluidity 2 flexibility.

I feel like Richardson could go through stretches that would do the same or better.

That's enough out of you, effer.

Besides expecting Teebs to learn behind the starters he's backed up would be kinda like sitting Von behind Idiot Cannonball and expecting him to osmosify something special.

Come on, PT ... just trying to have some fun. You can't possibly take any real offense here, with me as insecure stutter-box Chris Farley and you the smooth legend of legends, the latter-day Mozart? The enormous gap in prestige between the two almost completely undercuts the substantive advantage.

I know what it is. I do. Not sure I believe it, but I guess I'll tell you what you want to hear. As much as the belief that a detailed knowledge (or perception of knowledge) of the game proves a phallo-plethysmographical advantage, or conversely that less (or the perception of less) knowledge of the game is a sure sign of advanced Peyronie's offends me, I will tell you what you want to hear: "You know m...m...more about f...f...football than m...m...me."

There, happy?

Now mellow out, it's the off-season.

Don't know what all the hand-wringing is all about. It is highly unlikely that he is doing anything that the coaches and Luke Richesson have approved and sanctioned. Hell, it was probably their idea.

I'm concerned for the Las Vegas economy principally 'Chicken ranches'...plus size prostitutes cost much more overhead.

With the addition of Phillips to compliment Von, and Von bulking up some, it would seem to me that there may be some plans to play Von at RDE, particularly passing downs...

Someone made a thread suggesting that, but who was it..?
Good call MED!

I hate to say it but outside of manning I don't see Denver coughing up the dough that will be needed to sign miller. They'll tag him a couple yrs & then bye-bye miller.

Depends on championship(s) won in that time and Von's current production level at that point, IMO.

John knows the value Von brings. I think Von's a Bronco for life if he remains the beast he is today. And, I'm sure he'll grow as a leader in the coming years, as well. Adding to his value.

I'm sure Miller knows his own body better then anybody and if he feels he's already fast and flexible enough, and that adding some bulk and power will help his game, who are we do challenge that.

I remember when Kobe Bryant starting hitting the weights pretty hard and you thought he might lose some of this quickness to get past defenders and all that stuff. Didn't seem to hurt his game. If you really think about it, adding muscle really doesn't make you slow. Just go look at some of those all world track stars, the sprinters. Some of those guys are really built. They got pecs, biceps all that stuff. I think Von Miller understand that he's not really going to be dropping back in coverage all that much. He's a LOS guy and a pass rusher. Adding some chest and arm mass with power isn't going to affect his quick twitch muscles. If anything, I think another reason he is doing this is not just for performance, but for durability too. He could simply feel like as the season wears on, he gets too small and feels worn down a little. This could help.

No Way on earth Von goes anywhere unless he suddenly turns into Tyson Jackson the next couple of years!

And BTW, for you racing and Audi fans ... Audi just swept the second World Endurance Championship series at SPA Francochamps in Belgium with their three R-18 Etron Quattro hybrid race cars coming in 1st, 2nd and 3rd!!

They swept the first WEC race last month at Silverstone coming in 1st and 2nd with their two R-18s entered there, and next month, hopefully, will sweep the big one 24hrs at LeMans with the three R-18s they will enter there.

Audi is so consistently dominant now, it seems only a major mechanical malfunction or a crash is going to keep them from doing so. Only Toyota has a prayer to compete with them now and they are still a good lap behind in only the 6 hour SPA and have trouble keeping their Hybrid cars on the track. 24hrs is a long time and separates the men from the boys in speed, reliability and great pit crews.

Nice job Audi!

you're smoking crack. we ponied up for Bailey and Manning, we'll pay the franchise player which will be Von when he's a FA. plus, do you really think Elway will let his first draft pick walk when he's an all-pro player? i sure don't.

I bet we don't even let him get to the FA status. I'm sure they'll lock him up soon.
