Good Morning, Broncos fans! The 2014 NFL season picked up right where the prior one left off - with Seattle delivering a decisive blowout on national television.
This time, it was NFCN favorite Green Bay on the receiving end of the Seahawks' physicality, to the tune of a 36-16 outcome.
Russell Wilson, entering his third season, showed off a more divere offense and threw two touchdown passes.
Happy Thursday, friends. Today, I thought we’d go with a little NFC Preview action, because two NFC teams are going to be kicking off the season tonight.
Everybody seems to think that the NFC is vastly superior to the AFC, but I don’t quite see it that way. I think it’s got about four of the best seven teams, but I also think it has a few bottom-feeding teams too.
Follow me across the divide between space and time, and we’ll work our way through it, you dig?
Good Afternoon, Broncos fans! Here we are - the Seahawks and Packers kick off the 2014 season tonight.
There have been piles of previews, and there are more to come.
So many of them - even from the football writers we most respect - focus on the (trivial) fact that no SB loser since 1972 has come back to win the big game a year later.
Prior to the deal, Watt was signed through 2015, with salaries of ~$900K this year and ~$10M the next, with the 2015 salary (the fifth-year option) only guaranteed for injury.
At the time of signing, $20.9M was fully guaranteed, and by next week, another $10M will be fully guaranteed.
Happy Wednesday, friends. Yesterday, we covered the offense in detail. Anybody who has been a Broncos fan the last couple of years knows that the offense has been the primary reason for us to be so optimistic.
Honestly, it will continue to be so in 2014. Any team that has Peyton Manning will always be offense-dominant.
However, this Broncos team has a chance to sport both a top-five offense and defense.
With Wes Welker headed to the reserve/suspended list, the Broncos promoted wideout Nathan Palmer from the practice squad on Wednesday.
The former Colt and Dolphin caught one pass for seven yards during the preseason.
Colorado native Ryan Miller was added to the practice squad in Palmer's place.
According to the SF Chronicle, the city of Oakland has proposed to give the Raiders free land on which to build a new stadium.
Per the report, taxpayers would not be burdened with paying construction costs for a new Black Hole.
However, Alameda County residents would be saddled with $120M of the Raiders' 1990s-era debt from a renovation of the O.Co Coliseum. (via PFT)
Welker wasn't sure what exactly flagged his positive test but he was incensed at a report he took a Molly at the Kentucky Derby. He does wonder if someone put something in his drink at the Derby.
“I wouldn't have any idea where to get a Molly or what a Molly is,” he said. “That's a joke. I don't do marijuana, I don't do drugs. I don't do any drugs.”
You know how on the internet when someone types in CAPS they are either:
Well, guess what? Wes Welker is all three. He emailed the Denver Post tonight to defend himself after a four-game suspension.
