Quote from: Paper*Boy on October 13, 2015, 07:23:40 PMNever been in a pool before, it's a lot tougher than I thought it would be.Going into next week, heh, I will be on my third strategy, I'm sure things will all come together now
Quote from: eddie dean on October 15, 2015, 02:46:42 PMHaha. Indeed, It's not as easy as one might think. I have played in these kind of pools for probably 15 seasons total. I've never been able to pick a perfect week. I got close a few times, missing 1 or 2 games, but strategy & skill had little to do with it. It was mostly luck and being able to correctly pick the upset games...

Quote from: Eddie Coyle on October 18, 2015, 03:11:36 PM The Broncos are the 2000 Ravens. Except Manning isn't half the QB Trent Dilfer was. Elway will bench him by week 12.
Quote from: themudking on October 18, 2015, 05:04:51 PMmight want to do that next week.
Quote from: HedgehogNorman on October 18, 2015, 05:38:08 PMAny other team playing against them with that field position in ot and the Broncos lose.I was at the game. It was amazing how many people left after that play right before the end of regulation. For some reason a lot of people thought it was a touchdown. When the only two things it could be are A. an incomplete pass with 11 seconds left and 4th down, or B. a complete pass with the end of regulation.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on October 18, 2015, 06:51:39 PM The new "Bountygate" will be Elway paying his Offensive Linemen to get Manning hurt. Because the Pats play tonight, the Broncos-Browns game was on the CBS Radio affilliate, and I listened to this game, particularly the second half. Why the hell did Pettine go for two when it was 20-16. And just like the Browns to give up a 75 yard td to noodle arm after picking him off to take the lead. They are a maddeining team. I want to see them win, because they're a true underdog franchise, but holy shit-they screw up everything. On the broadcast, Brian Baldinger mentioned how many people left and I was stunned by that.

Quote from: eddie dean on October 18, 2015, 07:44:31 PMThe only idea I can come up with is there's not much difference between a 4 pt lead & a 6 pt lead. Either score requires the opposing team to score a TD to win late in the 4th qtr. the browns didn't think that one through & probably didn't realize the choice to go for 2 would ultimately cost them the game. Always put easy points on the board!PM's last pick 6 wasn't entirely his fault. The RB had an opportunity to catch the ball cleanly but he bobbled it, which gave the defender the opening to grab the ball out of the air & run it back. The 2 INt's before that were his fault. & the 7 before that! ugh. What a disaster! PM's arm is toast, I agree, but this entire offence looks like shit too. His WR can't seem to catch anything, TE are non existent, RB are getting stacked up at the line because the O-line can't run block. The only bright spot is they have next week off to do whatever it is that they can do to fix this clown show offence. Yeah Denver is 6-0, but the offence is a house of cards. The first high scoring team they meet will crush them by 20 pts. If the D wasn't good, they'd be 1-5 or maybe 0-6.I don't think Elway would bench PM. He's stuck with him this year. Manning saved Elway from Tebow, there is nothing, (except an injury as you pointed out Lol!) that will save him from Manning. I'll bet John Fox is getting a big kick out of this embarrassment!just goes to prove Elway, don't ever hire your friend/golf buddy to be HC! Gary Kubiak's new system hasn't helped matters much either! 12-4, 13-3, 12-4 the last 3 years, Elway: "hey, lets change, um,... EVERYTHING & see what happens"
