Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations

Happy Monday to you, or whatever day it might be as you read this, from the Department of Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations.  It's been a slow news week for the Broncos and the NFL, but that can't slow us down.  Ready, begin...

Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations

1.  I decided to do a Pro Bowl edition of ST&NO, to mark the occasion of what I believe is the first time I've ever deemed it worth my time to watch the Pro Bowl live.  I expect that this will be the first of many for Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, and it should have been the first for Ryan Clady also.

Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations

This will probably be a shorter version of ST&NO than normal, because there hasn't been that much going on lately for the Broncos.  The whole league seems to be focused on the Super Bowl, and the Hall of Fame announcements.  Oh yeah, those.

Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations

This seems to be the time of year when we all disagree.  This recurring feature I've been writing has been inviting lots of disagreement, which, since I am writing my opinions, is a good thing.

Factions emerge each re-loading season, around free agents and potential draftees, and whether or not ANY free agents should even be signed.  This year, we also had a coaching search to disagree on, and presently what looks pretty clearly to be an impending defensive scheme change to disagree on.  Disagreeing is fine, and it's healthy.  We can all learn from each other, through the course of disagreeing.  Let's all remember to disagree positively, though, as that is what separates us at MHR from the cretins at other sites.  We all have opinions, and we should all respect each other, because in the end we all want what is best for the Broncos.

It's another week, and that can only mean one thing.  Time for more Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations.  Yay!!!!

Shallow Thoughts & Nearsighted Observations

As we enter the re-loading season, I felt like I needed to establish a fun new recurring feature.  HT has MHR University, and Broncobear has the always excellent Tales from the Sunny Side.  Styg is heading up some great draft coverage, which has a fun name, which you'll be hearing about very soon.  Nick has some statistical analysis pieces which will be coming, and Zappa will continue to be Zappa, intermittently unleashing jolts of Broncos fan brilliance.  And the Guru, when we form like Voltron, the Guru is the head.

Things My Eyes Saw and My Brain Thought: Week 6

Time for more Things!  What could be better on a Thursday, other than if Burn Notice was still running new episodes?

Things My Eyes Saw and My Brain Thought: Week 4

I hate when the Broncos play in the early game, because it prevents me from channel-flipping like I like to during the busy part of the day.  I watched our game on Sunday intently, and only had 3 games to flip through late.

Today, I cut out of work early, and came home to watch a bunch of football.  Observations and thoughts follow.  As always, I only comment on football I personally watched.

Things My Eyes Saw and My Brain Thought: Week 5

I'm a day late with this, because it has been a busy week at the office for me.  Here goes some thoughts, now that I have seen every game.

Things My Eyes Saw and My Brain Thought: Week 3

As always, this is based 100% on games I watched....

1. Javon Walker looks finished.  He got no separation all game long.  Another former Bronco, Ashley Lelie, appears to be Oakland's best WR on a play-to-play basis.

2.  JaMarcus Russell has serious accuracy issues at this point.  I didn't see anything in his mechanics which led me to believe that there was a problem, but he's missing his targets a lot.  Interestingly, the training wheels are being taken off a little bit for him lately, and it remains to be seen how he handles that going forward.

3.  Jason Peters is supposed to be a big star at LT for Buffalo, but I don't see it this season.  He's been getting beat by pass rushers, and he had a particularly long day matched up against Derrick Burgess.
