Chewing the Fat: Broncos select Sylvester Williams

The IAOFM staff discuss the Broncos' selection of North Carolina DT Sylvester Williams in the 2013 NFL Draft

TJ: First Manti Te'o mention!  Drink! Another one!  Berman said, Te'o!  drink! I'm already hammered! They've already said it a dozen times.

Doc: Should make this easier; Gruden's having an orgasm over Te’o right now.

Ted: Let the record show that Ted Bartlett says the top two players in this class are Star Lotulelei and Jarvis Jones.

TJ: Haha, I'm glad you said that, since I was telling my good friend Doug Lee that I wanted Lotulelei, but that I wasn't going to get him.

Doc: I only hope that he doesn't fall to the Raiders.

Chewing the Fat: Broncos select Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan

The IAOFM staff discuss the Broncos' selections of Tennessee DE Malik Jackson and Kentucky LB Danny Trevathan in the 2012 NFL Draft, plus more talk about ASU CB Omar Bolden

Doug: 11 more picks til us. Anyone like Zebrie Sanders?

Ted: I do.  As a 5th-rounder, he'd be great value. He's a LT

Doug: Kick Franklin inside to replace Beadles, and Blake takes over for Walton? Winn still available too

TJ: yeah, I would be shocked if he can' beat out JD and rather soon

Ted: I like Winn

Chewing the Fat: Broncos select Omar Bolden and Philip Blake

The IAOFM staff discuss the Broncos' selections of Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden and Baylor offensive lineman Philip Blake in the 2012 NFL Draft

Doug: Hey Guys, get any sleep?

Ted: Happy Day 3. I slept pretty well.  I just wish I didn't think this started at 10 AM today

TJ: Roger Good Vibes

Doc: I slept about 4 hours - I'm on strong Earl Grey to start the day

TJ: Sweet, Em.  I stayed up all night trying to solve the Zodiac Killer crimes. Common as a street penny: pundits grading a team's draft as an "A" because they picked in the top 5 and got the blue-chip players. What the hell is this? Fans now announcing? Or is that some hick scout?

Chewing the Fat: Broncos select Brock Osweiler and Ronnie Hillman

The IAOFM staff discuss the Broncos' selections of Arizona State QB Brock Osweiler and San Diego State RB Ronnie Hillman in the 2012 NFL Draft

Doc: Wolfe and Miller - that's a very productive 2nd round. If you'd offered it to me three days ago I would have been very comfortable. I might have expected the order to change, but seriously - what does that matter? Both guys are excellent 2nd-round talents. If they settled for that option, I'd be pretty happy with it.

TJ: Great point, Em. So Miller still there? Reyes? Thompson?

Doc: I liked Vickerson as an athletic 325-lb nose. I didn't like a thing I saw as a 295-lb undertackle.

Ted: Reyes just went to SD in a weird scheme fit. Mayock ditched the jacket

Chewing the Fat: Broncos select Derek Wolfe at #36

After trading down from #25 and #31, Denver takes Cincinnati defensive tackle Derek Wolfe

Doug: Hey guys, so how many trades down tonight? TJ said that on the radio DMac was saying the Broncos screwed up last night, and they had intended to draft Doug Martin

Ted: I could see another one into the low 40s here if DT is the intended position. I highly doubt they would have traded the pick that was used to take Martin if they wanted to take Martin.  Tampa Bay had no obligation to share the target, but I'm sure the trade-out team asks. D-Mac is a radio guy, and radio is a knowledge-optional medium

Doc: I think that's right.  If they wanted Martin, they were in a very good position to take him.

Doug: So, who are you guys hoping for if they stay at 36?

Chewing the Fat: Week 15 - Broncos vs Patriots

The IAOFM staff discuss the Denver Broncos' 41-23 Week 15 loss to the New England Patriots

Ted: Happy Weird Football Sunday, gents

Doug: Hey, the band's back together! Good to see you Doc

Ted: Howdy Em

Doc: Hey, Ted, Doug. Great to be back! And, Weird is right!

Ted: The Packers insisted on attacking KC's strength all day, rather than hitting their weakness.  They might have gotten away with it, if not for bad drops and penalties. Plus, the Packers defense was bad all day. Except for the red zone

Doug: Maybe they just believe in Kyle Orton

Ted: Could be.  I'd damn sure believe in him more than Tyler Palko

Chewing the Fat: Week 14 - Broncos vs Bears

The IAOFM staff discuss the Denver Broncos' 13-10 overtime victory over the Chicago Bears

Ted: Good afternoon guys. It's a FOX Robot Sunday

Doug: Howdy Ted

Ted: Thanks for the value-add, Goose

Doug: More to come

Ted: I'm sure. Essays by Goose - that's positively Strahan-like. Let's see a pass concept, or some protection. Really nice play by Henry Melton. Dumervil played that perfectly. Hedge on the route, rush decisively. Ugh...the defense wastes a timeout...The crowd got them there! No wine and cheese from the sound of it. Bad effort by Goodman on the tackle

Doug: Podlesh, 18 fair catches on 30 punts...make that 19 on 31

Chewing the Fat: Week 13 - Broncos at Vikings

The IAOFM staff discuss the Denver Broncos' 35-32 victory over the Minnesota Vikings

Ted: Happy Sunday, guys. I'm watching Fox NFL Sunday, and somebody apparently decided that Strahan should go all Bob Costas, and do essay-style monologues about a selected topic. It's a bad, bad choice

TJ: Oh my, it's bad news with Costas, so it's a nightmare with Strahan

Ted: "It's hard to know when to retire, because all football players have ever done is play football"

TJ: Perhaps he'll talk about politics, religion, Sandusky, et. al. I always preferred Emmitt Smith, at least I could always count on a laugh - he was good for some grammar lessons

Ted: #FootballSunday is a really long hashtag that Fox is using... not real economical for Twitter

TJ: White RB alert! Toby! Toby! Toby! Griese on Toby: "he's workman like" - that's code for: white boy

Chewing the Fat: Week 12 - Broncos at Chargers

The IAOFM staff discuss the Denver Broncos' 16-13 overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers

Doug: I'm sure happy for the 4:15 start so we can see all these great finishes

Ted: Yeah it worked out pretty well

TJ: Wow, this game just got going quick, haha...and we're off!

Ted: Weather looks nice in Whale's Vagina

TJ: Shift shift shift, SD loves that

Ted: They really like to get quick separation with it

TJ: Goody jumped that

Doug: Pretty terrible throw. Oh my - Ryan Mathews does Denver like Knowshon does KC - Mathews has two 100-yd games, both against Denver

Chewing the Fat: Week 11 - Broncos vs Jets

The IAOFM staff discuss the Denver Broncos' 17-13 Week 11 victory over the Jets

Ted: Happy football Thursday

TJ: Hey, dudes - and I mean that in the old school way. Really old school

Doug: I’m not excited about staying up so late haha

Ted: I'm up till 1 AM most nights - I'm used to it

TJ: The MBA, Ted? Or you just like Zombie movies a LOT!

Ted: I thought kickoff was at 8. WTF?

Doug: Nah, it’s 8:20
