    Thought I'd go ahead and start this thread a little early, some good games today. Let's hope Kaepernick puts up a stinker and that Ray Lewis plays his last game.

    Let's also hope that Matt Ryan wins his first playoff game and the media shuts up about Seahawks. :pray:

    Looking forward to the Broncs, NE, Falcons and Green Bay moving forward this weekend. Enough of popsicle Pete and his horde of affelets. Can anyone name a White offensive or defensive star on that team?.....No, they have to go by all means.

    Zach Miller bails them out constantly on third down.

    Looks like the 9 point spread might be too small. Broncos TD first time they touch the ball.

    was that the punter that almost caught Trindon Holliday (10 flat 100 meter)?

    Amen to that. The days of coal black teams are over as we will see this weekend.

    Jacoby Jones - very overrated yet got chance after chance in Houston and constantly screwed up and now he cost the Ravens field position.

    Great throw by Flacco who gets no respect.

    Decker gets mauled, no PI, tipped interception for TD.

    After a gift pass interference against Denver, there is yet another non-call on an obvious interference on one of our white recievers. It's legal to interfer with white recievers that has been clear for some time now.

    Yeh, I noticed that too. And as always the kicker was given no recognition from the announcers for his obvious speed.

    Decker looked like Larry Fitzgerald the way he went up and snatched that ball. That's the player I've always compared him to in that regard, as well as being roughly the same size though Decker is a little faster.

    Stokley! All the Denver receivers are ready to kick ass today.

    Slowshon Moreno has got to be one of the worst starting RBs in the league. He's been given multiple handoffs and is slow, indecisive, and has no power. He shouldn't even be on an NFL roster. Great catch for a TD by Stokley.

    In an ESPN pre-game this morning, Cris Carter suggested that Denver get rid of Brandon Stokley because clearly they can find better slot receivers than that. Suck on that Cris Carter!

    When Denver is on offense it is essentially a black v white game.

    Bodes well for a Broncos win (even with the racially biased refs).

    These were the same ham & eggers saying Joe Webb gave Minnesota a better chance to beat the Packers than Ponder.

    Isn't it crazy how Stokely can still be so productive at 36? I mean he had over 500 yards receiving on the season and he didn't even start too many games. He would have easily been a 1,000 yards guy year in and year out but he only started handfuls of games every season. At 36 he still has decent speed and he was a legit deep threat earlier in his career.

    He's definitely been held back by the Caste System and it's great to see him still playing and playing at a high level. After his big thousand yard season in '04 (his only one) his role was cut back, as so often happens with White receivers after they break through. Stokley has hurt his cause though over the years by having lots of injuries.

    How many whites are the Broncos starting? Appears to be around 11/12?

    I noticed three starters on defense, which is a ton for an NFL team these days.

    7 on offense usually, plus the 3 on defense.

    As Don said they have 10 out of 22 overall. The offensive side is what people remember more in my opinion. They have 4 out of
    5 receivers/tightends catching the ball. Decker is an absolute stud. He cannot really be covered without a little cheating by most
    of the small corners in this league. Stokely is like a fine wine. He gets better with age. Just to have the desire to still play at his
    age yet alone to excel is amazing.

    Come on Broncos. I can't stand the Ravens. I want to have a happy beer buzz later tonight when I drink a few. Go Broncos and Packers!

    If the broncos lose it will be because of "all time great" champ bailey just being burned time and time again
