Just out of curiosity, how old are you? 

 

What does that have to do with anything?

Hmm, with the way you're responding in this thread, 9 out of 10 doctors would recommend a butt-ointment because you're a little butt-hurt.

 

Which is okay, by the way, I was really butt-hurt over DeMarco Murray leaving for the Eagles last year. That ointment actually really helped me get over it.

 

Umm if anything I am more upset that Peyton didn't return, but thanks for guessing my intentions.

Not that it's surprising, but Doug Pederson has named Bradford the starting QB; Daniels will be the second string.

Ok, so, I really don't mean any disrespect by saying this, but you sort of come across as someone who hasn't ever, or maybe even isn't old enough, to have ever worked a career-oriented job. And that's fine. There's nothing wrong with that. But when you're trying to plan out the long-term sustainability of your finances and how they're going to effect your future working life (sometimes even decades down the road), you have a LOT of personal things to take into account beyond "loyalty" or "brand reputation". Now sure, those things definitely have their place in the working world. But when you're trying to plan out things like how you're going to be able to live for the next twenty years, pay off future expenses, plan for your kid's education, investments, potential future health concerns, ect, all of that talk about brand loyalty and reputation is just that. Talk. Especially in an industry where the paychecks (although large) are few and at some points even far between, you can basically get cut at any point for any reason, and the health risks are high, those kinds of concerns are only magnified. 

 

I know you're a Broncos fan, and really, I get why you may be upset. But you're letting that get in the way of the reality of the situation a bit.

You are missing one thing:

 

The Denver franchise is first-class with a winning tradition.  Houston, eh not so much.

 

It's a team that missed the playoffs 7 times in 10 seasons in the '00s.  They had John Elway and Peyton Manning.  That's their winning tradition.

Not exactly - he repeatedly used the phrase "right now" when talking about Chase Daniels' status as #2.  He might be honest, but he also may have no idea what Howie Roseman is up to in the office down the hall.  I can't guarantee that they move Bradford, but I have no doubt that his contract was done that way for a reason and that they're listening.

I tried to make the same point a while back.  Sounds like a butt-hurt 16-year old with zero life experience.  Nothing wrong with that - but knowing does help put things in to perspective.  I get a 16-year-old arguing these points, but if you're in your '30s and still think this way then that's a different story.

And of course how could we forget their winning tradition of the late 80's being the shining example that the Buffalo Bills imitated in the early 90's.

I think its funny how he cited being snubbed by PEYTON MANNING as a reason for leaving.   Instead of being gracious of the chance to work with PFM for four seasons, he gets mad at being replaced by him?  Grow up kid.

 

 

Wait, did he really?  What an infant.

Who cares about Brock, really.  The Broncos are better off not paying him that money based entirely on upside he really didn't show and if Brock wanted out of Denver and made more money, he's better off for it too.  I'm happy so long as the Broncos don't end up with Kaepernick at QB.

 

My real issue with the Broncos offseason is how they've handled CJ Anderson by not offering him a second-round tender.  He ended up signing an offer sheet with Miami today and if the Broncos don't match, they lose him without compensation.  At best they would have saved about $900,000.

The same PEYTON MANNING that had the league-worst (well, tied with Ryan Mallett) QB rating for the 2015 season?

This is all hubris of John Elway trickling back into place after riding on the coattails of Ellis'/Fox's drafts & methodology.  How could you not know Osweiler was going to walk?  How could Kubiak, a QB's coach, not immediately know that Brock was kind of wounded after salvaging their season?  And in all of this, Elway just kinda says :censored: you, here's your crap contract offer.  If you don't want to stay with the BIG DICK HEAVY NUTSACK DENVER ELWAYS, GTFO!!!

 

Osweiler and the Texans I hope ream it right up Denver's ass next year.  Any team run by that arrogant sack of monkey ass deserves all the bad things.  Good luck with Kaepernick or, if you listen to Von Miller's dumb ass, bring in ol' Johnny Football.

Well, :censored:.  Seems like the Broncos are getting close to a deal for Kaepernick.

 

Just how reliable is SB Nation, anyways?

 

Also, I wouldn't say Osweiler "salvaged their season."  He mostly just didn't :censored: it up, which he might've had he stayed in against San Diego.

No, he definitely salvaged it after Manning crapped the bed against KC.

If you have issues with SB Nation reports from their DEN person, look at the Twitter for Mike Silver (NFLN who lives in the Bay Area) or Matt Maiocco (who has covered 49ers for the last 20 years for various Bay Area outlets).

 

Maiocco said that DEN and CLE are both interested, but 49ers are still wanting a at least a 2nd round pick.

Of course they do, because they're stupid. 

 

 

I'm on board wherever Kaepernick goes. I would WAY rather pull for Denver next year than goddamn Cleveland.

His performance rates out about average and the offense was mostly just as anemic for long stretches with him at the helm.  He wasn't bad, but I'm not sure playing mostly decent and having the defense win you ball games counts as salvaging the season is all.  They were 7-2 despite poor QB play before he ever started a game, after all.

No that was a legitimate question.  I really don't know how reliable breaking news from SB Nation is.

SB Nation is usually pretty good from what I've seen. It has it's issues, like anywhere else, but it's honestly probably my favorite place to go for sports articles. Their team specific sites are great.

This board has turned me in to the biggest Brock Osweiler (sp?) and Tom Brady fan in the world.  

 

I hope something strange happens and the Texans and Patriots can meet in the Super Bowl next year, both by somehow beating the Broncos in their respective CFG.

 

1.  Did he "cite" being bitter about Manning taking his job?  If yes, please provide link.

2.  I love that he felt scorned and had the balls to walk away and not return to the one that beat him.  I want to prove wrong everyone who ever doubted me too.

3.  The only way Peyton Manning should be mentioned in the same sentence as Tom Brady is if that sentence is something like "in addition to being a far superior quarterback than Peyton manning, Tom Brady also has a hotter wife, fewer playoff chokes, and a longer dong."

They typically do not break news, rather they are mostly an aggregator of news as opposed to having writers inside locker rooms/clubhouses on a daily basis. They don't typically break news, rather they link to those who do break news.

 

 SB Nation is really very good at college football,  horrible at long form journalism and often see the tweets of others for their page hits/revenue.

Yeah, basically. It's a bit of a different setup in that it's mostly fans who write for them rather than your traditional journalists (I think). It's kind of a refreshing take on the topic of sports journalism, and usually tends to have a bit less pretense than some of the bigger sites. But that can sometimes be a problem, though, too. There are a good handful of total :censored: articles on there at times. I give it more of a pass though because there are plenty of big name writers for ESPN/FOX/ect who make a ton of money to put out total :censored:, so it's more par for the course than anything else.

 

 

They do get a bit more leeway in terms of writing style, as DFW stated, and sometimes that's as well bad (That Daniel Holtzclaw article was an absolute :censored:ing disaster, and I'm glad someone got canned for that trash), but it's often times funny as hell, and takes some interesting angles that most sites won't touch.
