    I can't imagine he'll be signed by anyone this year, unless a team is really desperate.

    His play last year for us was average at best, and he's sharply declined this season.

    I'm hoping he'll sign a one day contract with us so he can retire as a Raven!

    Lavonte David is balling this season. Come on Buccs!

    He was legit last year as well, probably wont get pro bowl recognition because we're 1-8 but easily makes the grade.

    If Chiefs want to stop Broncos they better play press on the receivers and mix up their coverages. Also they need to generate pass rush and keep whacking Manning.

    Yeah Manning is playing so well this season. I think the Broncos might have too much this time...


    I'm picking the Colts for tonight's game... both teams played horrifically last game but I think the Colts have some quality

    2 More weeks left in the TSR league until playoffs begin. Plenty of teams still in with a shot. Glad I've come back from 0-3 to being in contention, didn't want to look silly

    It's Seattle, they'll give us a heart attack still :lol: If Harvin plays then many a happy feel will be had but I imagine they won't fully utilise him yet, there's no point in showing your full hand to a team whose been struggling so much all season when you have the Saints coming up. Then we unleash the Harvin/Tate/Beastmode combo of glory upon them Or if that fails, we destory their QB's until Allen has to be called up.

    Be nice to see so many OL guys back aswell, Wilson has been hit a lot so far this season and Jared Allen could run straight over McQuistan/Sweezy etc. Although on the ups, Alvin Bailey played really well as a replacement rookie so hopefully he will get some look-ins from here on.


    Think i'll have to stay up for the KC/DB game on Monday, seeing either beat will bring upon joy. Also 49ers/Saints... :sogood: Either loss is good news but i'd rather the Saints won to firm up the division title.

    Broncos, even without Clady have a very good O-Line. If the running game is a key litmus test of the strength of the o-line, then it isn't doing too badly. Look at Knowshon's production this year. For the record, Peyton has been sacked 13 times this year, which if it isn't the best mark in the nfl, is right up there. Yes, one hit, yet alone a sack on manning is one too many, and the o-line would be the first group to admit that, and that they have also been giving up a few too many sacks/free hits at manning lately. But they've not suddenly become bad. If the worst comes to the worst, than Osweiler is very capable of coming in and running the offense. That's why teams invest in a good backup. Not that will happen as Peyton's tough.

    Press coverage is very difficult to pull off with the holding, pass interference penalties. Knocking the WR off their stride is certainly one way to force. The broncos have been good at knowing when to run the football this year - they use the running game to soften up the defence, drawing the safeties in closer to the line of scrimmage to enable big passing plays, facilitated by the screen. Expect large doses of Moreno who can catch out of the backfield and Julius Thomas who is a beast. But DT is hard to stop and Decker is very physical. Wes Welker is elusive in the slot. Pick your poison KC. I do not see a situation where the Chiefs will be able to double team someone if they are all on the field - Peyton will just hit the open one.

    Personally, too much is being made of the Bronco's offense vs the Chief's Defence, as excellent each unit is. Equally important to the outcome of the game is how the Broncos D responds to Chief's O.. The Broncos defence is finding its way, tightening up the pass game, while not giving up too many rushing yards. It's a unit which forces 3-and-outs and is designed to put Peyton on the field. The bronco's D has been unappriciated this year. The Broncos have good situational defence and can step it up.

    Special teams will also be a factor. Hopefully Trindon Holliday hasn't quite been himself since the punter's hit on him in the indy game. He's having a great season as a return specialist and is due a big game. Prater doing well this season as well, which maybe reduces the pressure on Peyton a little. KC have excellent special teams, and I feel the game could be decided here.

    Going to be a good game.

    The Raiders game was brilliant. Our defence dug us out of a hole in the last 2 minutes. So tight but a win is a win. Now to see which of the Broncos and the Chiefs is best.
