Until more Bronco players get into the HOF, it's more of a poster than a card.

As far as the Pro Bowl, the bigger city fans vote for their players and all fans do the name recognition vote which is why Gronk and Gates get votes regardless. Bronco players just aren't talked about that much or you get "well they've go so and so, so that's why they are good". See Rod Smith. Did they do that to Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin or Troy Aikman? Yeah it's a card.

There's not too many other TEs playing at Julius' level. I think he has a great shot. He may be Witten's backup, but he has a great shot...

DT missed it last year because he wasn't well known. I won't be surprised if that happens to Julius Thomas this year.

If Thomas doesn't make the Pro Bowl, it's because of tough competition, not his performance. Gates and Cameron are having very good campaigns so far, plus Gates will get a lot of votes based on his name. It might be close between Thomas and Cameron.
I had mentioned this in another thread, but for all he "will he or won't he" OJ talk prior to the season, we've barely mentioned him this season ... and if he has been brought up, it's in a tone that suggests we knew it all along.

here was a guy drafted after playing one year of college football. At the time, most recognized him to be a 2-3 year project, but after a stellar training camp in year 1, expectations rose significantly until he got the high ankle sprain from hell in week 2.

Then, after surgery in the off season, he probably didnt fully recover until the latter part of 2012, at which point the Broncos weren't ****ing with a good thing.

But, of course, the Mane went ahead and had their own revisionist history. To hear the Mane tell it, this was Julius's 7th season on the Broncos, with the previous 6 spent having amazing training camps only to become a bumbling fool in the regular season. Despite what Maners say, he did NOT spend his 2nd training camp getting rave reviews. There were many here who thought he'd never amount to anything, even after his great 2013 TC, because they made up their own story.

So, now that he's fully healthy and has 3 years experience, he's beasting. But its been odd that no one is talking about it.

It is a brand new format, this year. The two top-vote getters are the captains of their respective teams. They will choose their teammates, draft-style, regardless of conferences...

Also, when MNF is on, McDman get his drink on. If sports is on Tuesday (hockey or basketball or reruns of bull riding, golf or competitive darts), he pounds a few on those occasions too.


But no, he doesn't get drunk every night.
Hey! I can quit anytime I want! I hate all of you!

I think a lot of the reason he isn't getting a lot of attention is that we have so many players tearing it up on offense, especially Manning. Manning is just such an overwhelming presence on this team. It's hard for anyone else to get much of the spotlight.

You should feel better about your chances now that he's doing interviews with the NFL network. The more exposure the better

Woodyard last year was one of the best actual LB in football and had a truly great season, but got no notice for it. Will be the same for JT
No. So far, every single game has been nationally or near nationally (tiny markets blacked out) televised.
