wish I was playing you this 1st week of playoffs in my league. You never start 2 backs from same team, esp a pass 1st team.

Seriously.

I picked up Ball as well but he's going in my Flex position. Tough call though because I also have Shane Vereen who's been good for 8-12 pts since returning.

I think last week was a sign of things to come for Montee though. I see at least a TD for him on Sunday with anywhere from 50-100 yds rushing.

Lol yeah, with his 1 meaningful turnover and 2 TD's. Let's stick with Welker and his 2 turnovers in 5 tries including a game-loser.

If we stick with Holliday we're 11-1 with the top seed locked up.

He possesses the one thing you can't coach - speed. And having more speed than others means he can make a positive impact. Even Rick Upchurch struggled with fumbles (27 in 9 seasons)....but he also helped Broncos win many a game with big plays/returns (35 total touchdowns rush/rec/ret)

If he's healthy and 100% he needs to be out there because he can deliver the homerun that either puts a team away or gets us back into the game like he did in Baltimore playoff loss.

Really worried about the Wolfe situation. Sounds an awful lot like the Porter situation last season. He could miss several if not all of our remaining games if they can't find the cause.

I know some ( a lot?) on here don't think he's producing, but I sure do. JJ Watt type production? No. But, he's a very important piece to our good run D and provides adequate pass rush.

I think it was Del Rio that really praised Wolfe for 'wanting to be great' and working hard to achieve it. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery and continued health from here on out for him.

It has yet to have a impact in the outcome of a game... or has it.. just because something hasn't happened is not going to happen.

I was at Disney with the family for 8 days last week and I think it might have hit 80 once. It barely hit 70 most days. It was funny seeing all the locals and disney workers going around in full winter parkas at night when it was in the 40s/low 50s.

Maybe no points were scored on that turnover, but because of his turnover DRC was injured and never returned to the game. Meanwhile the pats scored 31 points in the second half. I'm thinking losing DRC did have something to do with turning that game around.

I think blaming Trindon Holliday for the Pats loss is like the dictionary definition of scapegoating.

It's almost as bad as:

Blaming Welker for his blown call-out.
Blaming the defensive problems on missing DRC (I still do not understand this. I'm about to make a thread about it. You folks are in some really heavy denial if you think DRC means THAT MUCH to this defense. Let's get one thing straight, even if we have the best, most balanced team in the league, it is possible that we will still lose games. This is normal. No team could ever be good enough to EXPECT to win every single game. So Broncos vs. Pats... I think we have the better team, but we play that same game 100 times with the same players, in Foxboro, and we are going to lose a lot of those 100. Not the majority, but a lot of them. **** happens. Get over it. We are a couple seasons removed from Tim Tebow, and before that, Kyle Orton, and before that, Can't stay on the field or stop pouting Cutler (i was a big fan of his at the time). We are very fortunate to have what we have now and it won't be long before this is all over. Brock? Jesus Christ. I hope no one is foolish enough to think that he'll come anywhere near what we have with Manning. In a few seasons we will be just like Vikings fans, or Redskins fans, or basically any other teams fans with the exception of Green Bay, New England, and New Orleans, having to deal with inconsistent and mediocre quarterback play. And lastly, it wasn't because of DRC!!!)

DRC's decision to try and pick off a pass that was nosediving into the ground with nary a Patriot receiver in sight and the clock at 00:00 is what caused the injury......which caused the Broncos to change up their defense

Some fairly substantive updates despite all of the reasons that there wouldn't be any substantive updates.

Thanks to those who shared Lindsey and DMacs tweets

Warm weather AND they have 8 days in a week. It's almost not fair.
