    I can.

    I tend to think your "can't wait" disposition has nothing to do with football, but it's just the date or time of something significant for you. But whether it is or it ain't, I can wait for February to get here.

    NFL is trying to ruin the Pro Bowl. As really with Goodell as the leader, it has really not been good. As wished we had the ghost of Pete Rozelle back!

    Sheez, can we get the baseball playoffs set before we start touting our anticipation of the Super Bowl??

    Whatever you're waiting for, Salty, hopes its enjoyable for you (just in case my "massive memory" fails me and I forget to address it then).

    (PS: that's more like "massive memory failure!!)

    I always look forward to the Super Bowl but have absolutely no interest in the Pro Bowl.

    Especially with the new format, which is pretty much nothing more than a television filler.

    They seem to think flashy unies like Oregon, Baylor and Missouri have been wearing the last two seasons will cause people to tune in.

    Goodell should have gone with his gut and just cancelled the stupid game.

    Yep, sure do. The Super Bowl has meaning. The Pro Bowl is only about show and money IMHO.

    Let me clue you in on something. Pro sports are all about show and money.

    Manning's going to have to play one cold weather game, if not more, to get to NY, and since NY is "up north" that will likely be a cold-weather game, too. Manning loses in cold weather. A lot.

    You can now make that 0-3, because it was posted a few hours before that 24-point Patriots comeback November 24 in which Peyton was only 19 of 36 for a measly 150 yards, two TDs but one INT. Peyton has spent the last several days denying all this, including at one point getting tired of the questions by reporters at Happy Valley and telling them to "shove it." However, facts don't lie. Broncos lose, probably before the AFC Championship.

    Correction. 1-3.

    Denver demolished the Titans 51-28 in week 14, with Peyton going 39 for 59 in 397 yards and 4 TDs. The temperature was 18 degrees at kickoff.

    Forgot about that one. You're right. But it was also against a warm-weather team, and a bad one at that. We'll see how he does if New England has to come to Mile High, providing they both get to the AFC Championship game. The division title game the previous week will likely bring Kansas City or Indianapolis to town, and it isn't likely KC is going to lose three to Denver in one year, or that Indy will just lay down in the cold.

    Can't let you do this, friend. The stat of 0-3 was given without qualifiers and the now 1-3 record should be given without qualifiers. If we're going to qualify, then let's be sure to get the qualifiers right. The Titanics are 6-9, which does make them a bad team, but they are 10th in the league against the pass, including the Denver game.


    Why not? Since the merger in 1970, the team that won the first two meetings against a divisional rival is 12-7 when playing a 3rd time. Denver has proven twice they're the better team.


    Who's suggesting that Indy will lay down? Indy beat Denver once this season already and the way their defense has come back around to being good again means they have a good chance of beating Denver.
