Am I the only person who actually believes that McDaniels didn't view the 49ers practice tape? I say that because we had our tails kicked. How is it possible to do that much cheating, and STILL fail?

McDaniels has a great eye for talent, as evidenced by Brandon Lloyd

At the time I was thinking, uh oh, is this moron just going to make a lot of useless changes just to prove a point? Oh course that was exactly what happen. The idiot had to show everyone he was the boss even if it meant exposing how stupid he really was.

I hate that smarmy little prick.

Yeah, some of these guys have no clue what misery is...until you talk to the old school guys who were there since the birth of the Broncos.

Twice the Broncos were almost sold to outside interests who would have moved the team out of Denver. Gerald Phipps saved the team both times, contrary to what The Moops would have us believe.

We beat the Raiders once between '63 and '71...talk about being made to lick a cat's ass with the Broncos getting beat by the likes of 51-0....43-7....40-7. Twice we finished 2-11-1....3-11...and 3 times we won only 4 games.

We were the only original AFL franchise that never made the playoffs before it merged with the NFL.....and the two expansion teams (Cincinnati and Miami) made the NFL playoffs in first season after the AFL-NFL merger

We were the worst original AFL team with a 39-97-4 record....and never had a winning season during our AFL years.

But one season where we had the NFL's 2nd worst record but recovered to win division title and make playoffs the very next year is considered the darkest years of our franchise.

Lol @ IAOFM. Those guys just can't get over losing McJoshie. It's almost as pathetic as their daily Tebow bashing.

If any team is dumb enough to fall for the Belichick Trojan Horse trick again, it would be the factory of sadness that is the Cleveland Browns.

I remember his first game as our Head Coach. He wore the exact Belichick outfit but with bronco logos (cut hoody and everything)! It was so sad it was hilarious! Then Stink ripped him on Sportscenter!

Singletary always scripted his first 15 or so plays. If you watch that game you'll notice we held them in check until halftime where they adjusted, and McDamnit ate a pizza.

Ted Bartlett is one guy, not "those guys". And if you know they bash Timmy "daily", does that mean you read their terrible stuff every day?

I do. I like to laugh daily. And they all think McJoshie wasn't given enough time.

If it wasn't for McDamnit Von Miller would probably be a Buffalo Bill right now.


I give props to the creator of "joshmcdanielssucks.com". That website got me through some tough times.

That's the silver lining! Plus, we'd have Cutler instead of Manning.

I think you know I meant the NFL draft. Von Miller is the highest drafted player Denver has had since the merger. Using the pre merger AFL draft obviously does not apply.

Wasn't BLloyd inactive for all of 2009
Yeah right he knew what he had in Lloyd
Not like this was rod smith on the practice squad who they promoted over miller
This was a journeyman wr who they thought so much of to deactivate for every game of 2009

If you didn't know, That same author of the McDaniels piece sent him a note that he needs to give credit when he steals articles and posts them on the Mane.

No, not at all. Tell us who's doing better work on the Broncos. I'd love to hear it. I mean, you posted their material here once so you must have liked it at that point. Right?

I have fun with IAOFM. When Ted takes a break from expounding how great his football knowledge is and how retarded the rest of the world is, he actually does some fun analysis of game film and his series on the Peyton Manning offense was an entertaining read. Doug's daily Lards tend to be a nice concise aggregate of most of the interesting news stories that day. And TJ's gut reactions tend to be fun read immediately post game.

But yeah, a couple of the admins over there do seem to have an axe to grind with Tebow and it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. And they all seem to worship at the alter of Bill Belicheck. I get the guy is a great coach. But the 'Patriot Way' is not the only path to success in the NFL. It feels like they forget that fact at times.

Another knock against them is they actively recommend Christmas Ape. I'll admit, I'm no fan of Peter King and actually do think he is a tool. But when you entire shtick consists of ripping off someone else's work word for word and then annotating it with snarky comments, you are dog**** in my eyes.

That dump you took is pretty much symbolic of McDummy's tenure and what he did to the organization!

The Patriots Way is looking more and more like a complete scam. Tell me IAOFM, what was Bill Bellicheck's HC record before one Tom Brady was dropped into is lap? LMAO at the fact that the "Patriots Way" is centered around a HoF QB and a coach who video tapes opponents pre-game walk throughs.
