Default McGahee: "We're the favorites in the AFC"

Went to XFinity Live at the tavern tonight and got to meet Willis McGahee. Really nice guy! Surprisingly friendly and down to earth. He said one thing in particular that caught my attention. Some doofus in the audience said he thought that Houston should be considered the favorite in the AFC ().

McGahee's response: "I disagree. I think we're the favorites in the AFC." Great to see that kind of confidence! Manning, Fox, and Elway are raising the bar for everybody. Offseason workouts started today, and I'm more excited for this season than any in recent memory. Can't wait! (Copyright, Bart Scott)

GO BRONCOS!!!

Muile High Salute, I doubt you would know this but when a poster goes and meets a Bronco or tells us he knows a bronco, you ALWAYS come here first by starting a thread on "What questions do you want me to ask (the Bronco)?" That is how it is done since the great Cutlerfan started it in 08.

I feel like guys are just expecting Peyton Manning to come in and magically fix things.. you listen to a lot of people and it's like the Broncos have already won the superbowl. That is a sure sign of disaster because people forget how bad the team was last season and underestimate how good Tebow was. If they think things are going to be easy compared to last season they are going to go down hard.

Ha ha - that wasn't my question. I asked if he had talked to TD about the Mile High Salute (Vic didn't read the second part of my question, which was what does it mean to him to be part of the tradition of great Broncos running backs). Duly noted, though, for the next time - you can probably tell I'm new to the forum.

P.S. Your avatar is epic!!

I saw a bumper sticker driving home on Sante Fe today that read "Bring back Tebow. Trade Elway."

Being the best running team in the NFL doesn't involve luck.. and doing it with only McGahee is freaking unbelievable... That's the ignored Tebow effect..

People forget that you can't be a great running team like that if you can't pass either..

Not sure why I took this post off iggy but I will bite.

With a passing game now in Denver, this should also open up the running game. Opponents knew we were going to run and for the most part, had moderate success at doing that on 1st and 2nd down. We built up a ton of yards on the ground but it took a lot of plays. We won't need that type of offense when Manning is throwing the ball short, in the backfield or deep. I see some gaps in between our OLine for some nice holes. With the Jets on the East Coast, you probably can catch the full games of the Broncos too. You all snuggly in your Tebow Blanket down in Jacksonville while you scream at your tv to "Bring Tebow in!" and then a few hours later get to watch the guy who replaced Tebow, how cool is that?

Can Peyton take the hits Tebow did to throw the ball deep though? That is what opens the run game.. and Tebow's running ability forced teams to force him to stay in the pocket allowing him to throw deep without trying to hit him.

This is a big reason orton was so horrible throwing deep.. because teams knew he wouldn't stand in the pocket and had no mobility. With a geriatric Peyton I see him beiong Ortloike in that regard.. then you get dinking and dunking.. and thatkills your run game just like it did with Orton. You need Welker Gronk, Hernandez and Belichick's brilliance to pull that off.

This is what makles it so incredible though.. teams KNEW every play the Broncos would run Fox was so predictable.. and yet Tebow made the run game so unstoppable they still couldn't stop it. This is why the Steelers were so consumed with the run..

We can now add the word 'bias' to the running list of things Macgruder doesn't understand.

Why are you here, you should be in NY defending Tim from all those terrible NY fans booing him.

You obviously are not a Bronco fan.

Comparing Manning to Orton. Priceless. You go out of your way to prove your own stupidity.

I don't think Peyton will have to worry about the hits Tebow took because he won't be holding onto the ball for an eternity. And if our run game takes a hit because there is no Tebow running, but Manning is making his throws, that's just fine and dandy also. You may not be from Florida but you have a serious, irrational crush on Tebow. I'm sure by the end of the season there will be a thread, "What ever happened to that MacGruder guy?" Oh yeah he was wrong and disappeared.

How is MacGruder not blatantly trolling at this point and ruining just about every thread? Come on mods, seriously.

I ignore the guy myself, wish more would do the same.

Hell, two more years and Tebow is out of the league, working hard to bring Christianity to all the Catholics in the Phillippines. This too shall pass.

Do you know how many players say this at events like this? Odds are we are the only people that read about this.

Quoted for truth. All of it, including the ignoring bit.

That's what I thought too, but I guess the Tebows don't. They've been working for years over there.
