Moore ran around with Miller at A&M and he had his own off-field issues and you want them on the same team?

Good to know.
They changed that rule after figuring out the players are better off around the team. Isolating them just leads to more problems and more unsupervision.

Gabbert may not even play so that automatically makes them a more competitive team.
Not to mention if Harris and Bailey are out Shorts and Blackmon could cause some problems. I think Henne way below Romo though. Henne is the Romo mistakes without the Romo big plays IMO.

Broncos offense will roll through the Jags. If the Rams can throw down 30 on them? I mean cmon right?

That's one way to look at it.

The other way is what every other team tries to do every draft class and get a stud pass rusher.

Why not do both?
Look for the next JJ Watt rather than the next Von Miller, so they can play together.

Get the new guy on rookie contract while you sign Von up to a very conditional contract.

Von Miller is an elite level player, you only cut Elite players if they are a poison in the locker room, which we have no evidence of for Von.

The pre-draft logic was that Miller would take him under his wing and get him straightened out.

Then it turned out that Miller is essentially a big, black version of Miley Cyrus with a slightly bigger penis.

Harris won't be out. They aren't going to score nearly half of their total season point total in one game.

I remember that, in fact I was pushing for Denver to draft Moore thinking Von would be a good influence on him

I'm not, and haven't talked about cutting him. I think he'll probably end up making the decision for the Broncos on how he handles himself from now on.

But that doesn't mean we sit back and count on him to come good. Like you said we'll need to draft a guy that can be a primary pass rusher for us in the likely case that Von goes stupid again.

With the Broncos you can probably add on about 10-13 points to most teams we play. We won't face any gameplans that don't try to score a bunch of points. It should eventually lead to some more interceptions by our defense.

Plus Broncos get such huge leads our defenders may pin ears back a bit as games turn into blowouts. By doing that IMO you are more likely to give up a big play. Hard for a defense to care about giving up a score when they are up by 30 points IMO.

I think with henne starting, 2 good young WR, and our defense really banged up and avg right now they could easily score 3 tds on us.

The funny thing is if Von gets 3 sacks on Luck the week he comes back the people hating on him will flipflop and demand they sign some sort of long term deal with him. Chill people we have his rights for a few years when you factor in the franchise tag. Lets give the man some time and see how this suspension affects his attitude on and off the field. There is no way we can replace him via the draft so we just need to just see how it plays out.

Do you really think that $10 is only paying for the commodity price of popcorn and soda?

The funny thing to me is that I am often viewed as hating on him when I just want him to act like a freaking adult. Which is pretty much a basic expectation of anyone on the planet after a certain age.

He's my favorite player by a long shot, and I cannot wait for him to come back and play with what I hope is a renewed chip on his shoulder. But let's not make any mistakes here, he's his own worst enemy and should really only be proving something to the people he let down including himself.

The team will be smart enough to take care of Von as soon as Von proves he can take care of himself I imagine.
