If I can be indulged an odd-ass post, sometimes you just need to be reminded of the good times...as I randomly post an "old" picture that I didn't take, (and have no clue how I possess) of a couple luminaries who rattle around these parts now and again. Instead of the good fortune of being at Mile High that day, I was enjoying my ownself in a parallel existence at TD's house. Champ take it to the house on Brady? Yes.
Broncos defeat the Pats at Mile High to go on to the AFC Championship Game back in January of '06. Though that AFC Championship game would ultimately suck...still weird to think the B'cos were a game away from a Super Bowl about 5 years ago.

If you thought that I was going to ask for you to sign the great Peter Forsberg you are wrong.
Paging Greg Mauldin. Paging Mr. Greg Mauldin. Lake Erie Monsters, please pick up the phone.
OK. Enough is enough. Time to bring back Mauldin back. Seems like the Avs started their slide about the same time that Greg ended up back in Ohio. Let's not let this get out of hand now. I've even created some new nicknames for his return.
Scaldin' Mauldin. No likee?
The Flying Mauler. No?
Smokin' Pall Maul. Makes smoking glamorous?
Just bring back Greg alright! I'll work on the nickname.

You might remember that on November 1, 2010 I said that there was no way that I could ever root for the Seattle Seahawks. Well, I was wrong. I was very wrong.
This week I'm hoping that the Seattle Seahawks beat the living buhjesus out of Jay Cutler. I know that many of the football purists are hoping for a Bears vs. Packers NFC Championship. I am not.
I am personally hoping that the Seahawks knock that horrible toupee off of Cutler once and for all and expose him as the blameshifting wuss that we came to know and loathe here in Denver.
Sour grapes? Maybe. Personally I'm glad he's gone.
Here's how the rest of the playoffs pan out.
Patriots over Jets.
Seahawks over Bears.
Patriots over Steelers.
Seahawks over Packers.
Seahawks win out. Later on it will be discovered that the Patriots coaching staff wasted their time by analyzing tape of the Packers and watching hours and hours of Clay Matthews' hair conditioning techniques in an effort to help out Tom Brady with some tips for his own coif.

A defensive coach....I'm sure that wasn't an easy decision for Elway, but it was the right one. Dennison might have been the more fan-friendly choice, but I still have nightmares of when he was the Special Teams Coach for the B'cos and it was keystone cops every time his squad was on the field. I'm sure he's progressed as a coach, but hiring the more experienced coach, who has had some pretty decent success with limited means, is a sound move and should pacify the legions of fans that have been in an uproar since (insert lame McSomethingInsult joke here) took over. And you gotta hand to Foxy Boy, he can craft a fine liquor tan....

Although there was some intrigue down the stretch of the season watching Timmy take some snaps and show flashes of promise, things are now going to start getting mighty interesting in Bronco Land. After getting thoroughly dominated by the Chargers during the better part of today's game, Timmy almost mounted a logic-defying comeback. Good thing it didn't happen, as it would have dropped the B'cos down several positions in the draft. With the 2nd overall pick, we should be able to draft that monster DE from Clemson and start rebuilding something resembling a defense. I'm not sold on Timmy yet (it's too early to draw definite conclusions whether he'll succeed in the NFL), but he has shown enough promise and the defense has shown more than enough shittiness to make it clear where the draft has to be directed....oh, and resign Champ already.
It has been largely leaked that Elway will become VP of Operations. Why not? If nothing else, it lends some credibility to an organization that has been hemorrhaging credibility at an alarming rate for some time now. The only downside I see is that the team needs to focus on defense, which might not be Elway's forte....a good first move would be to resign Champ.
While the top draft selection is clearly a make-or-break decision, hiring the right coach is equally or more important. In line with the draft priority, my preferences would be a defensive-minded head coach. I'd be pretty happy if Chucky were somehow brought in (he's been a big Tebow supporter since he was drafted), but I can't see Bowlen spending the dough. Kubiak also seems unlikely, since it sounds like he'll stay in Houston. Harbaugh? I don't watch college football, so don't ask me. Should be interesting to see what transpires the next few months.....to heck with the 2010 football season.....and resign Champ please.
