The Broncos are a tad overrated.There, I said it. I know I am in the minority and I know I will catch a lot of grief over making that statement. But, I can’t hold it in anymore. Something had to be said.I’m not trying to purposely ruffle feathers or start an argument for the sake of starting one. I just can’t see the mainstream love of this team.Maybe it’s because of Peyton Manning or the run they went on last year that was miraculously shattered by the Baltimore Ravens in the second round of the playoffs. But, when you look at this team besides the passing offense, what is there?Before I continue down this road where I am sure I will encounter a few diversions, I will say this: I do believe Denver wins their division and they will be a good regular season team.Some of it is based on the personnel they currently have and some of it is based on the Broncos' schedule. The Broncos are a good team. I just don’t see them being the top team and a heavy Super Bowl favorite.  Now that I...

2013 NFL preview and predictions

As I made plans last night as to which local watering to hole my (quite extensive) posse and I would travel to for the game tonight, it hit me. It’s really football season. My fantasy football drafts have come and gone, the preseason finally grinded to a halt, and each of the National Football League’s 32 teams have solidified a 53-man roster. So what now?

Demaryius Thomas on Peyton Manning: “He got a lot of strength back that he didn’t have last year.”

According to Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas Peyton Manning’s arm may have actually gotten better from last year as scary as that is. “The biggest difference is his arm strength,” Thomas said. “I never thought anything was wrong with him my first year, but coming back to OTAs and minicamp and seeing the strength he’s got, the zip that’s on the ball, it’s a big difference...

2013 NFL Predictions – TVF QB Rankings

In addition to our upcoming Annual poke fun at the writers NFL Predictions post, this year we decided to do something a little different.  We ranked “All NFL 32* teams” based on their current QB situation. *Note* I accidentally left the Giants and Rams off the list of “All 32 NFL teams, because I’m a moron. Some people noticed and included them, some did not. This was designed...

NFL Predictions: Cowboys vs. Broncos Super Bowl?

A Peyton Manning versus Tony Romo Super Bowl? It could happen. (Photos: Zimbio.com) Every year a handful of teams in the NFL surprise and a handful of teams disappoint. For instance, the 2012 Washington Redskins. Picked by most to finish in the NFC East cellar, the Redskins rode Robert Griffin the III all the way to a division title. Publications usually do a pretty bad job of picking...

Fantasy Island: Christmas Morning

“It’s here! It’s here! ” , I scream, as I run downstairs in my Eagles print footy pajamas.
