    The Denver coaching situation sounds.... interesting?

    Fangio basically giving up the offense altogether to Kubiak (should be a 'yay', in principle ) and Elway (a 'hmm' at best) outside the basic overall coaching stuff doesn't sound ideal but this defence still had potential to be shit hot with a signing or two in the right spots so fingers crossed.

    Is Kubiak not doing it now?

    Yeah, I mentioned him and Elway. Kubiak will be calling the plays but I've read a few things talking about Elway's involvement. Which is a concern given as time has gone on it seems his best moves were "sign a hall of fame quarterback " and "let an amazing DC work with an ŗmazing defense." Which has him a Super Bowl, fair play, but it's not exactly sustainable.

    I thought Kubiak turned it down though?

    Yeah, he was OC for about two days then changed his mind. Broncos were after the 49ers QB coach to replace him but werenít allowed to interview him.

    Ohhhh. I a) missed the news and b) thought you meant it the other way around.

    Catching up on it again now it, again, sounds like he had different ideas to Elway about how they should be going about it. Ugh.

    Out of those two, he's not the one you'd want going.

    If Elway is this controlling about the offensive stuff and it all goes tits up then he must be gone next year.

    You'd think.

    As time goes on the more it looks like all the non-Manning stuff about the team in that first year or two was just happy coincidence rather than the grand plan he was managing to make it look like.

    I'm going for Colts, Chargers, Rams and Saints this week.

    Pats don't look anywhere near as scary as they usually are (usually means they go on to win the fucking thing but still) and Chiefs don't have a defence for playoff football.

    Gurley will steamroll the Cowboys and Eagles will finally shit themselves out of it.

    I'm just hoping for us to put up a fight. This recovery has been very encouraging despite mass injuries. I'm slightly worried how we perform better as a team under Foles than Wentz though.

    I want Mahow's picks to be correct, but I can't help feeling the Patriots will do what they always do, Philly will step up, Dallas will shit their way to a 17-14 win & KC will win a shootout.

    Yeah. If the colts defence haven't realised ball in hills hands running at speed is a bad thing it's going to be a long ride.

    Big possession here. If the Chiefs march and score again the colts could crumble.

    He'll probably be fine by the time they come back on the field, or by the second half at worst. Colts really need it to be something that takes away his mobility for the rest of the game though.

    Well that's what we needed to get something going (except KC will probably go up & score a TD now)

    Was that 'So Long Astoria' by The Ataris on the cutaway?

    That's shameful, really. I know the Colts basically just play zone, but surely you have to gameplan to take at least one of them away?

    If Sammy Watkins & the run game beat you that fine, but not the two players that make up like half of their total offence. It's like playing the Saints & letting Thomas & Kamara beat you.

    A little bit early to start lolling, but Vinateri hitting the post was quite funny.

    If Kansas score on their first possession back that should be the game.

    Colts have just completely bottled this. Can't even get a fourth down stop without a penalty.

    Giving it the full Val Venis at the referee

    This HAS to be a TD, and the Colts defence HAS to force a quick punt on their next series.

    EDIT: Well, it wasn't either of those. GG Indy

    Sounds like we're going to have two more Alabama declarations too - CB Saivion Smith (the guy Justyn Ross killed on his long TD) has officially declared, and Deionte Thompson (the guy Justyn Ross ran then straight by on the same play) is unofficially expected.

    Thompson should be a first rounder, despite a shaky run in the playoffs, and Smith will likely be a mid-round guy, but it's reassuring to hear him declare as it must mean his injury wasn't serious.

    Tyree Jackson added to the Senior Bowl roster as well, which should be interesting. He's 6' 7" with a monster arm, but he played for Buffalo so it'll be interesting to see him against a full team of good college players.

    Have we just witnessed the end of Adam Vinatieri? This would be a one score game if he'd made both those kicks.

    That running into the kicker penalty is 100% lol, not that it really makes much difference to the outcome of the game.

    That's not a good omen to winning at Gillette.
